Chic Mama, easing into spring March 18 2013

          

        

The first day of Spring is fast approaching (March 20th to be exact) yet it is 30 ish degrees here in Brooklyn. The thing is I am sick of my winter clothes and as soon as the sun is shining longer days here I do everything in my power to give the illusion of a sunnier disposition. Most of us already have reliable layering pieces like a warm vest, tees and our favorite jean. I have such an itch to shop but everytime I think I can a bill or something big like summer camp tuition comes up. So I’m thinking just a bit here or there is what I can do. I love blouses so I’ll add one to my jean and sneak a tee under for warmth and I have a lot of faux fur and shearling vests that I wear probably a bit too much but hey it’s called a reliable piece for a reason. I also think puffer vests look quite chic with blouses so don’t store that puffer quite yet. The key is to think of a few places you can wear a new piece to regardles if it’s $30 or $300; you deserve for your wardrobe to work hard for you.
