Just a Warm Up

With all the resort lines in stores and online and spring concepts about to hit the  racks (watch out, it's totally coming...February: it snows and Nordstrom is carrying sandals).  For those of you going to a warmer place (or live there) stink.  Just kidding (sort of). ;)  For those of us not planning a tropical getaway or who live in places where it snows until March, here's how to make the most of the AWESOME spring colors and pieces until the weather really gets here.

Use this checklist of winter essentials to start your layers...winter layering essentials

It's everywhere for spring; neons, pastels, florals... Work it now by combining with what you already have.
J Crew mini skirt
I see this with a pair of tights and a scarf.  Save the fun shoes for once you're inside somewhere; until then, boots will do very nicely.
Layer on a colorful coat over a turtleneck dress.
Or just a black shift dress with a scarf.

Just add water...I mean, tights and a blazer!  If you're adventurous enough, go with a turtleneck underneath or chambray shirt over the dress.  Either way, you'll be warm.
Nautical Now

Stripes are a great back drop for colorful accessories.

blue dress
This dress will be perfect with a colorful pair of wedges come spring.  For now, I'd settle with a blazer, tights, and a raspberry scarf.

Long sleeve striped shirt + chambray shirt + blazer/jacket + toothpick jeans = winter layering chic
