Easy Layering - An Outfit Post

Spring is a funny season. It is like that Katy Perry song Hot and Cold, where one day sun gleams from up high just to have the wind blowing us sideways the next day. 

Dressing during spring takes a hot and cold approach too -- you want to dress light, but layer up.

This button-up and jacket combo is the perfect ensemble for a windy spring day in Seattle -- just the right amount of layering to battle the cold, if it ever decides to come.






What about you? Do you layer in spring?

  13. That shirt is such a great pop of color underneath the jacket! I always layer in case it is chilly somewhere!

  14. Since I live in SF now I've learned that layering is a must there are a bunch of micro climates here so one neighborhood is always hotter than the other, if you don't layer here you either freeze or roast!

  16. I usually layer all year round- even in 90 degree weather, going from the beautiful outside where you melt to a frigid office where you feel like it should be illegal- layering is very important!

    Cute spring outfit! :)

  20. Layering is always good so that if the weather warms up one can take off a piece or two. I like to wear a light jacket or sweater. Cute outfit!

  24. I have to admit that I've been lost these past few days. Not sure of what to wear at all! The part about layering that I still am not a fan of is that when you take off a layer, you still have to carry it with you.

  25. Totally agree, Spring can be a difficult season to dress for, but I think layering like you did is the best way to go! There's a new post up on my blog and I'd love to hear what you think of it, so feel free to stop by!

  26. I don't know how I missed this post! I love layering and I'm sad summer is here to say good bye to it (temporarily). I love your layering--the jacket is perfect and I like the flared pants! Happy Friday!

  27. Such a structured and casual outfit! How's the weather in Seattle right now!? We keep getting episodes of hail... about 3 times a day with peeks of sun and rain. It's so weird!

  28. I like how simple this outfit is but you can wear it to work casually or for the weekend. I love layering during the spring too - it's a must since the weather is so much colder in the mornings and evenings. You look great! :)

  36. I'm attempting, rather unsuccessfully, as I'm more of a "ready, shoot, aim" type of person when it comes to seasonal change. Baby steps, I suppose...

  37. I have to layer in spring, and I dislike it immensely. I hate being too chilly if I don't layer properly and too hot when it gets warm out and I'm wearing layers! So stressful haha. But you look put-together :)

  39. I do layer in spring because in SoCal, it is warm in the daytime but colder in the early morning and night time.

  53. I've been enjoying the past weekend of sun, and can endure today's gloomy gusts. However, I agree! You need to layer here!
