April showers bring May flowers. Or so they say! But really it’s a free-for-all for the weathermen (or weatherwomen). Last week I was in New York City where there was a high of a brisk 55 degrees, this week I’m home in the Midwest and it’s a perfect 75 degrees and sunny. If I didn’t know better, I’d almost think I was in LA right now. It’s that nice.
May flowers or showers, either way it’s hard to dress for a 20+ degree variant. So I devised two spring lewk options: one for the sunshine and fun, one for much less sunshine and possible rain. Grab a kombucha and take a gander!!
When spring is doing its g-dang thing and all is right in the world
The sun is shining, the tank is clean (Nemo reference), and you woke up on the RIGHT side of the bed for once! What. A. Day. Let your legs hang free in a skirt because ’tis the season for a #nopantsdiet. A salad print shirt only feels right to compliment my #summerdiet (similar to but different than my #nopantsdiet). The sweater is mostly for show because it’s too beautiful outside to actually need the extra layer. But drape it over your shoulders and go into full-on fashion editor mode. *Whispers I’m capital-F fabulous to yourself.* Top it all off with strappy sandals and a handbag that ONLY fits the necessities because life is too good rn to be weighed down by the pile of six month old receipts laying in the bottom of your purse.
When spring has a mood swing and literally cries all over your plans
If there’s a chance a rain, practicality always beats flamboyance. Unless wet hair is your thing. For me, rain (or not even rain, just the chance of rain) makes me want to hideaway and never leave the comfort of my bed. But that’s no way to live, unfortunately. So layers have to act as a walking duvet. Start with a t-shirt, and put a bird on it (I mean a cardigan). Then add a blazer because you are biznuss womyn! All with not-your-grandfathers trousers and a sensible shoe (because besides ruling the world, you also have common sense). Small bags are my jam at the moment, if you couldn’t tell — so here’s another pouch for JUST the essentials because you’re not a minimalist but you are an essentialist.
Take that, spring!!!
