I Feel Pretty | Winter to Spring

It’s mid-February in Texas which means spring is just around the corner.  We’ve enjoyed some 75 degree days already this week.  There’s nothing better than a February day spent on the patio. Of course, Mother Nature is fickle and we’re bound to get some cold temps again but this week has been a nice break in the winter doldrums.

If you’re following my Daily Style Diary posts on Instagram, you’ve probably already noticed that I’m transitioning out of my winter wardrobe into more spring-y looks.  I’m so ready for my boots to go into hibernation for the season!

Before we say hello to spring style and goodbye to winter, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my favorite winter outfits and ways to transition pieces of them into spring.  Yes, I’m aware that there will probably be plenty of winter wear opportunities ahead, but it’s nice to dream of warmer weather and start planning our wardrobes accordingly too!

Outfit One

Black and Beige Outfit Full

Keep for Spring:  Striped Top

Stripes are great year-round.  Pair them up with florals, polka dots, pastel jeans and every other spring trend you can think of.

Outfit Two

Tribal Sweater Red Jeans Boots FullKeep for Spring:  Denim Shirt

Yes, denim shirts are still on the scene for spring.  They look cute paired up with a floral scarf and some fun pastel colored jeans.

Outfit Three

Wellies, Jeans, Jacket Full

Keep for Spring:  Rain Boots

Rain boots are a no-brainer for spring showers.  These come in seven different colors including this punchy red.

Outfit Four

Cashmere Nepali Scarf Full

Keep for Spring:  Leggings

You better bet I’ll be wearing my SPANX leggings in the spring.  They’ll be perfect with long tunic blouses and cute flats.

Outfit Five


Keep for Spring:  More Rain Boots

Spring is the wettest season after all, so more than one pair of rain boots makes perfect sense.  I love this violet pair.
