dressing for spring in the pacific northwest

spring has finally arrived in seattle.
while summer is my favorite season (i love,
love the sunshine), spring is a close second.
the blooming flowers, increasingly long days,
and warming temperatures, i can't help but feel excited.
i also enjoy seeing fellow seattleites exploring
our city!

the key to surviving spring in the pacific
northwest, however? dressing in layers! keep
that sweater, sweatshirt, and/or rain jacket
close at hand because the weather can (and will) 
change quickly. if you're like me, you may
conveniently forget said sweater or jacket and find
yourself caught in an epic spring storm.
^^^ quick aside--i recently had my eyebrows microbladed,
and these were the first photos taken after my session
with amanda at eastside microblading. i have my touch-up
session later this weekend and cannot wait to see her again! ^^^

one of the ways in which i add versatility to my
wardrobe, while dressing appropriately for spring, is
to throw on a crew-neck sweater over a dress. 
don't get me wrong, a cardigan over a dress or a skirt +
sweater combination is just as fun, but there is something
to be said about a this crew-neck sweater and dress. perhaps 
it makes me look (or feel) taller? i have been on a 
sweater kick as of late, and this fuzzy cream sweater
is one of my favorites!
i also love pairing my booties with skirts, dresses, 
and denim come spring. hello, bare legs.
this pair of dolce vita pointed-toe boots is perfect
in the pacific northwest. whether rain or shine,
my feet are dry and look stylish. i can't wait to pair
these booties with cropped and/or white denim!

layers are seemingly essential in the
pacific northwest. regardless of the season, 
be sure to wear (or pack) layers. i am 
almost always cold, so having a sweater
or jacket nearby is very important. in warmer
climates, a light scarf or sweater can also be helpful.
buying neutral colors, such as this sweater 
and bag can also extend the wear of your spring
wardrobe. both of these items can be styled
in a variety of ways. i wore this crew-neck
sweater with ripped jeans and converse last weekend.
cream and white are classics for spring, and 
they can be dressed up with accessories
or dressed down when unadorned.

light-weight fabrics are your friend.
unlike years past, this spring has felt
particularly humid in seattle. i am chilly
in the morning, yet sweating when racing to
catch my bus after work. fabrics such as
cotton, linen, chiffon, and hemp are
breathable when humidity is high.

dress: lush clothing, sweater: nordstrom rack,
booties: dolce vita, purse: zara, rings: target

how do you dress appropriately for spring?
any tips for dressing in layers? if so, please
send them my way!
