Although summer is here and it's bringing the heat, some of you may be transitioning from warmer to cooler weather, or perhaps your climate is a bit more moderate. Here are some of my transitional weather looks that you may take inspiration from. In Canada we go through half a dozen fake springs before the real one comes and stays. Our temperatures will fluctuate from +16 to -8 in a day, so it can be rather difficult to figure out what to wear. Here are a few looks that help to channel your inner spring, while ensuring you stay warm.
I am really making a strong effort to not purchase clothes frivolously and I don't actually clothes shop very often, which may surprise many of you. What I do, truth be told, is shop my own closet as well as my best friend Boston's. I'm lucky enough to be the same size as her, so whenever she is purging her clothes I a) help her & b) benefit. Contrary to Scott's belief (my boyfriend) I do not tell her to get rid of things just so that I can have them...though there is ONE article of clothing that this rumour floats around in particular LOL. It just so happens to be the blue Lululemon poncho style top featured in this lookbook.
So needless to say, you cannot purchase any of these items, except the Timberland boots (here). I know many people want to 'shop' someones look and I love being able to check out the items, but not everyone has the opportunity to do that right now (especially those who were hard hit by COVID). So I want to share more of what I have in my closet and really try to create looks from what I already have. This will also help me decide what pieces I am actually missing from the wardrobe.
But I hope that doesn't stop you from taking inspiration from these looks!!
The hardest part with transitionary weather is having enough layers. Some of these looks can be easily modified with thicker or thinner tights if needed, because you can easily add/take them away if it warms up. You can of course also add chunky cardigans, other scarves etc. to stay warm. The colour palettes also change from the darker tones of winter, to the pastels and brighter shades for spring/summer.
I would love to know which look is your favourite and what your go-to items are for transitioning weather! Be sure to watch the full lookbook below & subscribe to my channel if you aren't already! PLUS, there is a bonus look in the video!
