The transition of seasons call for a transformation in habits, moods and of course wardrobe.  But when I stand in front of the styling precipice (my closet), I see no such disparity in my clothes.  For me, seasonal change is cause for using layers whether piling them on or peeling them off.  I think outfits should thrive on versatility.  It’s a shame to put away your favorite fall/winter piece when the sun comes out or vice versa.  Better to find a way to make it work.

    That skirt/dress (skress?) is so flippin’ cute! How does it work? I love the fullness of the skirt, and the print is of course preternaturally spring-y. It makes me want to go on a picnic in the park…
