Layers, Layer, Layers

I have a soft spot for transitional weather, and that goes for when we're both shedding layers for spring or adding them for fall. In my books, transitional weather is that between-season sweet spot when the temps are not too hot and not too cold.

It's a time of year where the outdoors prove themselves ideal for multiple blankets of clothing that counterintuitively yet seamlessly come together for magic sartorial moments. These pieces can be as heavy or as light as the wearer wishes, depending on where we're at in the calendar year.

During autumn, layering should be all about over-indexing on coziness to keep warm as the mercury plunges, whereas spring should be approached from the opposite mindset: ensuring your clothes will cater to both chilly mornings and midday temperature peaks.

The trick is to go with pieces that are complimentary and compatible. Mixing textures and colors can add some fun dimension to your look, while keeping things monochromatic can make for a super streamlined power 'fit. The opportunities are endless, the climate is yours to conquer, and the fashions are there for the taking.

Layering is king, and by default you are queen!

FCUK Florals for Spring

Here we are, April 1st, and still feeling like it's the middle of February. What gives, Mother Nature? I understand us humans haven't been too kind to you and your beloved planet in the past, well, ever, but there's no need to punish us with a bad April Fool's joke. Waking up to 32F/0C is failing springtime spirit. No thanks!!

In the meantime, I will keep wearing florals for spring, because according to the mercury, it actually feels groundbreaking.
