Monthly Musings – 3/30/23

Happy Thursday! It’s the last Thursday of the month so I am linking up with Holly and Patty to answer 10 fun seasonal questions. I love thinking about my answers and seeing everyone else’s answers, too!

In January, we talked about beating the winter blues.

In February, we talked about warm weather destinations.

This month we are talking about spring fashion.

1. How do you transition your wardrobe?

I don’t really transition my wardrobe much. I keep wearing bright colors and I layer my clothes. I stop wearing my heavy sweaters and move into warmer dresses before it is officially warm enough to wear dresses and skirts most days.

2. Favorite spring item?

Lilly dresses. I love how their colors welcome in the spring season.

3. Favorite spring footwear?

Right now I am wearing gold and light pink loafers, but soon I’ll be wearing my Reefs. I love my leather pair and my black fabric pair.

I also love my sneakers because I tend to run and walk more outside in spring (and summer).

4. Favorite colors you wear in spring?

All of them! I love bright colors and pastels as the weather warms up a bit.

5. Favorite spring accessories?

Cardigans! I am ready to wear some lighter clothes but it is still chilly around here. My cardigans are the perfect solution!

6. Ways to add spring to your outfit even when the weather doesn’t cooperate?

Bright colors and layers! I generally wear bright colors all year long, but I really lean on them in the spring and summer.

I also love my Lilly popovers because they are bright but warm. Paired with white jeans, it’s the perfect combination.

7. Do you change up your makeup routine in spring?

Nope. The only thing I do is wear a slightly dark shade of powder, etc. because I have a little more sunshine on my cheeks.

8. Puff sleeve trend… yes or no?

No, thank you. I love a cardigan and it just doesn’t work. I also have pretty broad shoulders and it feels like the puff sleeves make my shoulders even broader.

9. Do you change up your mani/pedi colors in spring?

I don’t usually change up my colors much. I love a very pale opaque pink (Olive & June Pink Sands or GH) and other neutral colors on my fingers most of the year. I tend to keep my toes bare all winter long. When it is sandal season, I polish them with bright pinks, corals, and pale purple.

10. Recommend your favorite spring handbag or tote.

I love my Barrington St. Anne tote all year long. I have a few lighter colors that are perfect for spring.

I also have a great pink Kate Spade cross body that I love in the spring.

Well, now I am really looking forward to warmer weather and lots of sunshine! How about you? Be sure to check out the hosts’ posts and everyone else who joined in. I’ll see you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites. Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

    I love bright colors too, though I honestly rarely wear them. That’s probably because, when I was a teen/young adult, I thought black was my style and I just never grew out of that idea.

    You definitely have spring colors covered with Lilly. You always wear fun earrings too. I love the plaid shirt with navy cardigan. I love cardigans as well.

    Ah — I can’t believe I missed commenting on all the Monthly Musings posts last month — catching up quickly before tomorrow 🙂 I agree, cardigans are my go to in spring because I can wear a lighter blouse/shirt under them.
