NYC Style: The Transitional Pieces You Need This Spring #Outfitinspo

With the warm weather approaching at last, it’s finally time to start wearing those new spring looks….But you’ll still need that transitional jacket & shoes to get you into the season. The beginning of spring is so exciting but also a little tricky to dress for when you’re on the go. Mornings can start off chilly, afternoons are hot & evenings can be somewhere in the middle here in NYC….

Pretty floral tops & bohemian style blouses are great for this time of year and can also be dressed down on weekends or transformed into a cute festival look if you’re headed to see any of the concerts this year….

My key pieces for this time of year are:

transitional jacket– you’ll need a great jacket or 2 that goes with anything that you can wear in the morning & then take off again in the afternoon. The Moto jacket is a classic choice that you can find in plaid black, with embellishments or in fun colors.

a pretty blouse or mini dress– a great new spring dress or blouse is perfect for layering over jeans, leggings or pants for now & this look will take you from a day at the office to happy hour or can also be a great weekend brunch look too.
