The weather in Seattle has been unpredictable lately. Some days it’s warm and others it’s chilly and wet. If you live in a similar climate or just want some tips on layering, this is the post for you.
Pick a color palette When in doubt choose colors that are in the same family. If you’re wearing neutrals, stick with neutrals but if you’re feeling spontaneous go with vibrant and bold colors.
Choose your base For my base I went with a leopard blouse, the perfect compliment to a neutral color palette.
Add your layering piece This sweater jacket by Shein is a great layering piece. It’s super affordable and the quality is decent. I love that the sweater is not bulky and it comes in one of my favorite colors. When you’re working with layers, pick a material that flatters your frame.
Watch your proportions Know your body and what looks best on you. Spend time playing with different lengths and styles. I tend to shy away from anything long because of my height. At 5’3″ it’s easy to get overpowered by too much fabric.
Mix your prints I sometimes wear dots on dots, or stripes with stripes, but you can also mix and match your prints. If you decide to wear a large print be sure to pair it with a smaller one, keeping your colors in the same tone.
Pick two shoes When temperatures are cool, my go-to is wool socks and boots, but then the weather surprises me and warms up mid day. This is why I suggest picking out more then one shoe. In this case, I would go with a pair of flats that are easy to throw in your bag.
Accessorizes your look To add some depth to your outfit try a hat, scarf, or gloves.
If for some reason you find yourself in 60 degree weather, just wrap your sweater around your waist, remove your accessories, throw on some flats, and you’re ready to go. Don’t forget your sunnies!
How do you dress for the in-between season?

Love that sweater!
Love the layering, Asa! The cardigan is super chic and I’m dying over your booties! SO fab!

My typical (foolish) strategy for dressing between seasons is to pretend it’s already spring and dress accordingly 😉 But yesterday was actually warm enough to go without a jacket and I just about exploded from happiness!
PS That lipstick looks amazing on you.
Ha ha, you’re silly. I’m always cold so you won’t see me dressing for spring until it’s warm.
Thanks lovely! :*
I was thinking about getting that sweater jacket. I am surprised at how great the khaki version looks. Love how you paired it with leopard!
Thanks Yasmin! It’s a great choice if you decide to pick up.

Your sweater jacket is beautiful. Love the beautiful caramel.
Your bracelet is amazing! I also love your city pics. I’m from Seattle originally (my mom works a few blocks from where you took this set) and I always get a twinge of the home sick : )
