I live in the Northeast which means the spring months is kind of a toss up when it comes to weather. It means it could rain, it could snow, it could be 75 degrees, or it could be 35 degrees. It truly depends. When it comes to styling myself in this interesting weather, I stick to the rule of layering. That means, if I am going to wear a dress or anything that shows my legs, I have to have a piece to cover up my top but can be removed if it suddenly turns into an 80 degree day.
My boyfriend and I are launching a secondhand, personally curated online thrift store called Thrifted Rich. It is literally our baby (and I said I wouldn’t have anymore kids). While putting together outfits for our Instagram page, all I had in mind was our Northeast spring seasons. This means lightweight pieces mixed with warm layers to prevent freezing when the sun goes down (or you just step into the shade).
Springtime Fine Pastels
The spring time is the time for pretty pastels like pinks and purples and even some splashes of heather gray. This outfit was inspired by the beauty of spring and the ups and downs of the weather during this time. The feather jacket, available at Thriftedrich.com, is a bomber jacket length while being lightweight enough for the spring but heavy enough to carry you from day to night. My favorite part is that it has POCKETS! A lady can’t go wrong with pockets. I paired it with a tank dress and platform Kylie and Kendall sneakers (gifted by bae).
Low Key Gray and Black
When I think of spring, my mind automatically goes to fresh, new, bright, and colorful. But, springtime is actually quite rainy and dreary. As the old saying goes, April showers bring May flowers. This outfit is inspired by those spring days that are a bit dreary and there is a light drizzle. Wearing an overtly, brightly colored spring outfit can be saved for sunny days. The distressed tee is thick, velvety, and so unique. I absolutely love it. The distressed light blue jean jacket is honestly a spring essential. Both items are available at Thriftedrich.com
