Hopefully for most of you ladies spring is well under way by now. With weather being so extreme in all parts of the country (one way or the other), it's been a bit of an unusual transition this year. Here in California we have been experiencing unseasonably warm temps, while some are still dealing with storms and snow. If you happen to be having a "normal" spring, I hope you are enjoying it!
For this season's capsule closet I've picked a very sweet yet modern color palette of pale blue, coral and olive green. Mixed with classic neutrals of black, white and heather gray, there are endless opportunities to mix and match between pieces to create the perfect look. As usual I have stayed casual with my choices, which reflect the laid back California style I embrace. You can dress up or down with your accessories, which is a great way to build a versatile wardrobe.
I chose mostly short sleeve, as they are perfect for layering now, and will take you into summer later. I love to ditch the long sleeves as soon as possible after winter!
