Ease your winter wardrobe into spring without sacrificing warmth by focusing on the color palette. A nice neutral sweater (love the back zip detailing on this one) lightens up tough coated denim, especially when paired with nude pumps and a two-tone nude clutch. Finish the look with a colorful collar, delicate shades and a few scattered rings. How are you prepping your wardrobe for spring?

If you're looking for a way to spice up your skinnies on a dull old weekday, I'd say a few sequined stripes are a pretty safe bet. Even better? Layer on a little (faux) fur for good measure. (Yesterday was a windy one, so please excuse my baby-fine toddler hair gone wild.) Is it just me, or do "short weeks" have a way of feeling a bit long sometimes? Happy Thursday, everyone; we're almost there!
Mother Nature has been a fickle little lady around here lately, so I've made a little rule for this week: when in doubt, choose trousers. Black silk trousers like these are an easy throw-on-and-go option that can be layered up to battle a chill and stripped down to the basics in a warm office building. Here, a quotable tee and zippered jacket paired with cap-toe heels add a bit of edge to the easy trousers. Finish the look with a floral handbag, printed sunnies and a few pieces of silver jewelry. Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!

One styling question that readers always seem to email about is print mixing, and my main advice for easily layering prints is to keep them all in the same color palette. Here, a muted Aztec-printed skirt plays nice with a similarly hued floral coat, while an ivory blouse and speckled grey sweater provide the extra layers. Complement the look with grey booties and a light blue scarf, and add an unexpected touch with a bold red handbag. What's your favorite way to layer prints? Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

I'm a pretty firm believer that a great accessory can really transform an outfit, and for me, a standout scarf is always a favorite, regardless of the season. (While we're on the subject, Love Quotes
