"How do you still tell the world that you are welcoming Spring with arms wide open and watery eyes (from allergies) without catching pneumonia or frost bite? "

We're in that awkward stage where it looks deceivingly warm outside but as soon as you step foot in the shade, you start losing all feeling in your face. I'm not sure if this feeling is ever acceptable. Let alone in the last week of March! You enthusiastically pull out those Summer pieces only to throw on a wool coat and a scarf over it. Your closet is bursting from it's hinges.
I am you. And I totally get you.
How do you still tell the world that you are welcoming Spring with arms wide open and watery eyes (from allergies) without catching pneumonia or frost bite?
You play on the colors.
Put away half of your dark colored sweaters and go ahead and reluctantly put away the third black leather jacket you have hanging in your closet. Pull out the pastel, subtle printed, nude jackets, long dresses, and shoes. Reveal that winter skin cautiously because the night chills are brutal. My second advice - Don't abandon layering just yet! Pair your skillful or even novice layering skills with lighter hues and subtle prints. Introduce your Spring pieces slowly. And I promise, you won't suffer like I did all those years (and just several weeks) ago.
