My Go-To Transition Pieces

Indy can be pretty bizarre when it comes to weather. One day is 60 degrees and sunny, and the very next is snowing and in the ’30s. This past week definitely reflects the craziness but it’s a perfect one to show you some of my go-to transition pieces (all worn in the same week, believe it or not!).

My first tip is: throw a navy blazer over it. Whatever IT maybe be! In this case, I put it over a lace little blouse and jeans shorts. It adds a little nautical chic over your outfit. I love it over light colors especially white dresses and blouses. Just avoid pairing it with black so they don’t crash 🙂

This Blazer is a boyfriend fitted style from years ago (another one I refuse to let go!!) but I found great similars from all price points:

I know the gold buttons can be a bit much for some, but trust me it’s such a classic and NEVER goes out of style!!

Next piece: a long thin/gauzy cardi. This one I wear all the time. It has pockets and comes in several color choices. I love how lightweight it is. A great piece to travel, and easy to pack! The neutral tones go well with spring or fall colors. Also, this style pairs well in the summer inside air-conditioned places or even in the winter as a layering piece. Think of a year-round investment 🙂

And since it’s spring (even though you can clearly spot the snow on the ground) I decided on an all-white look with grey and cognac accents. I absolutely love these high waisted jeans and settled for them after the first search this year. Have I mentioned they’re only $39 right now?!! I went up a size and they’re long too. Great for tall girls, I myself cut my hems (per usual!!) haha

Another go-to transition piece is a suede jacket. Yes, I know you’re probably nodding your head right now. This jacket seriously lives up to its hype and above. And to be honest I’m about to pull the trigger on a spring color as well. The reason being it’s easy and takes the whole look up a notch.

I recommend you go with a neutral if this is your first one, but have fun if a color is your thing. As I said, there are so many amazing and happy color versions of this beauty.

My last go-to transition piece is a military jacket. I have this oldie but definitely a goodie and wear it a whole lot. Sometimes I hesitate to post because I know you guys want to shop for the exact pieces but since the trend is back I was able to find a few great and similar ones too!
