It’s awkward and weird. Do you bring mittens or wear open toed shoes? Canada transitioning into Spring is just plain frustrating. Sure, 10 degrees and sunny mixed with a snow squall, nothing new. Instead of standing in front of your closet for 20 minutes, I’ve put together three looks that are easy to wear, and work well with this ever changing weather.
For A Chillier Day
For a day that could end in a snowstorm, I’ve layered my camel cape (thrifted) over top of this outfit. I’ve paired my favourite American Eagle dark wash jeggings with my classic almond toe black booties from Le Chateau. I then layered my Jcrew (thrifted) sweater over a white Aerie button down. I added some gold jewelry to dress it up a bit more. This look is easy to dress up or down, and most of these items can already be found in your closet.
Not Your Boyfriend’s Jeans
This look is a bit more casual. I’m wearing my dark wash American Eagle Tomgirl jeans, and have paired it with my velvet blazer from Dynamite. With a cute graphic tee and booties, this is a great, easy outfit for spring. There are so many wardrobe staples in this outfit. The jeans, graphic tee, casual booties, and blazer are all wardrobe essentials.
Spring Is In The Air, Maybe?
When it might actually feel like spring outside, this look is a perfect one for spring. I’m wearing a (thrifted) Banana Republic dress with my Fairweather denim jacket. To warm up the look, I threw on my wool Anthropologie hat, and my Evelynn By Nicole Snobelen infinity scarf. What does a girl do for shoes in this temperature? SHOOTIES! The perfect combination of an open toed shoe and a bootie. There are two coveted times that they are seasonally appropriate, and this is one of them. See ya in the early fall, shooties! These ones were borrowed (stolen) from my mother. Sorry mom, but you probably won’t get these beauties back anytime soon.
Most of these looks can easily be found in the back of your closet, or with the small addition of a few key accessories. The moral of the story for this insane Canadian weather lies in one word: LAYERING.
