Today it’s sunny and almost 50. In a few days, sunny and 60′s predicted. The run on white jeans and spring hued tops will begin! I know I was personally hoping for a 6″ snow but if it’s not gonna happen I’m ready for spring.
So, what do you wear for February weather when it can be warm one day and cold the next?? Well, at some point you need to invest in a handful of warm clothes in spring shades. For instance a pink cashmere turtleneck or maybe a lavender cardigan. Or you could go ahead and pull out your white denim and let the spring influence be the pants. My go-to look will be my white jeans and a black turtleneck or a maybe navy wool sweater. Almost any color with white denim, especially if you add stripes, looks nautical which equals cruise season which is right before the spring season (in the fashion industry)! Did you get that?? February and some of March is all about dressing like spring even though it still may be cold. Crazy I know.
There are some good finds right now if you are looking for something warm but light in color. Dillards has their cashmere sweaters marked down; Antonio Melani and Alex Marie in many colors. Online, this one and other light shades were only available in medium and large. There might be more inventory in the store. This would be lovely with gray wool pants for work or jeans and flats.
Another option for church or the office is a black, gray, or maybe navy dress with a pale sweater on top. And dresses look great with boots for really cold snaps.
The dress below is a poly knit so probably not tremendously warm but good for transition days and of course the neutral black and gray will go with any color. I love the pointed detail at the hips…should be very flattering. And, under $100 bucks!
Then you can ward off any chill with something like this…..
For an extra 25% off, use the code HEART214 online. There are several colors to choose from.
So the deal for the foreseeable future is, you can bring out the springy colors, just not the springy fabrics. Got it? Just because it’s a sweater doesn’t mean it’s a winter sweater:) And as we all know, even farther south than me, it is still winter.
Please call if you need me. I’d love to help. And as I’ve mentioned before, while there are still some good sales, retailers are not holding onto the clearance as long it seems. Some have already moved theirs out but, I’m good at finding deals so we can still try!
Thanks so much for reading and sharing! And, in honor of Valentines Day, clips from two of my favorite movies. The first one I couldn’t find on youtube so this will have to do. If this movie is on, I will watch it every time. Hilarious. And the second is great for so many reasons one of which is the line “my shoes will think I don’t love them”…..bhahaha! Love. It. Tissues needed if you haven’t seen the movie.
