Mixing and Matching Your Way to Spring

Spring may have sprung but not long enough to forget that SF marine layer. Lately we've been having fun incorporating lighter colors as we transition into spring. This in-between time has allowed us to play with mixing and matching weights, textures and layering pieces that can be added or removed without sacrificing style.


My favorite spring piece is my flowy skirt from Zara. I'm not ready to pack away my coveted leather Theory jacket, so I combined the two for a hi-low look that has softness and a bit of edge. Underneath is a L.A.M.B. sweater that is lightweight and breathable. This piece will absolutely stay in my closet as a spring staple!


I naturally run a little on the cool side, so layering is the core of my spring wardrobe. This season I'm playing more with textures and layering with unexpected pieces. I love the way a lace crop top can be paired with an oxford for a modern take on office wear. Color is another big shift in my seasonal wardrobe--most of my winter black pieces have been replaced with a softer navy. 

Here are a few additional tips for transitioning your winter wardrobe to spring:

  • Use jewelry and accessories to add in trend colors, such as a chunky necklace or bright bag.
  • Master the art of layering. Focus on fiber content and what pairs well together and still stays breathable. Denim jacket + Cashmere Sweater= Softness with Structure
  • Keep your leather jackets and transition in your cropped pants or skirts to wear with them.
  • Swap out heavier knee-high boots for lighter-colored spring boots or booties in suede. They look great with long dresses and skirts.
