Spring in the Air and in my Step

If you were in New York City and didn't spend time outside this weekend, you missed out! Saturday's weather had me seriously reassessing whether my doubt in Punxsutawney Phil is misplaced, because oh. my. gosh. was it beautiful outside! To celebrate, my friend Caroline and I grabbed a fantastic brunch at the Upsider (obvi 'grammed it) and then headed to the Upper East Side for a stroll around a gorgeous and sunny Central Park. 

Even though the weather is screaming spring, I can't bring myself to dress in full on spring fashion in February. That's why today, I'm sharing what I consider a "winter to spring transition" look. 

I chose to wear dark jeans and my favorite new jacket from Zara (I'm obsessed with the cut), but with some unmissable pops of spring fun and color-- like my light blue nails that somehow didn't make it into the photos - whoops!

A day warm enough for no socks is always a good day. I'm currently beyond crushing on these shoes from Aerosoles. Not only are they adorable, incredibly comfortable and perfect for spring, but they're also a complete steal at 50% off! (insert girl with arms up emoji here).

I'm all about the natural eye / bold lip combo, and this bright neon pink is certainly bold. A departure from my favorite winter red is one of my go to ways to welcome a new season. The best part is that this color is actually a lip stain, so it's guaranteed to stay all day. 

You shouldn't be afraid to mix patterns, whatever the season. It's super on trend right now and easy to get right, as long as you don't go overboard. When in doubt make sure your patterns have at least one common color!

This cute cross-body was actually a Target clearance find! 

Low maintenance was the name of my Saturday hair game. I recently tried Amika's Haute Mess Texture Gel and I love it. It's perfect for a wind swept beachy waves look. 

Caroline and I ended up at the beautiful Jackie O Reservoir for a stunning view of the city, plus some adorable ducks. 

Anyway, more days like this please! I hope you all had a weekend just as beautiful as mine.
