ZOMG florals! How stereotypically spring of me…and a premature effort while at it. But here’s the thing: when you pair a typical bright/cheery pattern with a darker counterpart of a color, the result is an outfit that screams, “Transitional.” During this strange time of 50° dropping to 30° within an hour, nothing you choose to wear each morning feels right come afternoon. Embrace it, we’re all struggling with this right now.

Now with a pattern, I generally pair it with solid cotton pieces – nothing special, nothing new. As I’ve mentioned before in previous posts, this is my season/year of new styles and concepts: this look focuses on texture meets pattern. A trench cardigan keeps this spring/summer piece under wraps for now but you can expect this number to be paired with high-waisted everything later in the season. In the meantime, it serves to be breezy when the temps feel warmer than usual but light on my body so layers can get involved. Shop similar below:
