This is the hardest time of year to figure out what to wear. I know that the fashion rules about wearing white and linen are supposedly antiquated and we’re supposed to let it go, but I was raised in the south and I just cannot quite embrace this fashion freedom.
Plus, you know, the weather is just fickle. One day it’s 74 and sunny and the next it’s 56 and drizzly. My closet suddenly becomes a mish-mosh of 3 different seasons, and I obsessively check accuweather.com so I know what to wear on any given day.
I thought I’d have some fun with Polyvore and put together some great in-between outfits for this time of year.
But first . . .
Tips for Dressing In Between the Seasons
1) Opt for brighter colors.
Brighter colors make me feel like spring even if it’s still only 40 degrees outside. I usually wait on pulling out the linen and white and other light colors and textures until after Easter.
2) Layer, layer, layer.
Cardigans and jackets are your friend. This way, you can easily add or subtract articles of clothing, depending on the temperature.
3) Invest in cute ballet flats.
I usually ditch my boots long about the middle of March, but it’s too soon to dig out the sandals, so I end up wearing ballet flats almost every day. I like to have a few pairs to rotate so I don’t get bored, and this is a great place to add a pop of color.

How cute is this!?
What tips would you add to my list? Do you save the white and linen till after Easter? I would make the exception for white jeans. I love the idea of wearing white jeans in the off-season, as long as they’re paired with the appropriate colors/textures/accessories.
Which look is your favorite?
