Wore this for a VERY busy day working at Corset, and had to lose the jacket for at least part of my shift. Also regretted the tights, but didn’t have time to take them off! Spring transitional weather can be absolutely confounding. I do try to follow my own advice for making seasonal transitions seamless, but when it’s totally freezing in the morning sheer patterned tights just seem ludicrous. And by afternoon I’m melting.

Anyone else fighting with shifting weather? Any sneaky layering tips to share?

    I never wear tights in our transitional seasons, No matter how cold it is in the morning, I dress for the hottest it’s likely to be because nothing sucks like trudging across campus in a jacket and boots on a humid 75 degree spring day, and I carry lots of layers in my car. Most of my light jackets end up in my car during the spring and fall months. My knees are just used to being cold in the mornings.

    Very cute! love this. I have a quite similar bird print dress from DP I am using a lot at this time, it layers so well, but you are right, dressing for the temperature range could actually be very confusing! Since I suffer from colds, I always overdress with layers, scarf, cardi, etc, but in spring I try to use different tights than opaque tights (i.e- sheer tights, better if with tiny prints but also nudes). To me, they work very well at this time of the year.

    That dress is gorgeous, love the pattern. Leg warmers are my savior in this weird transition time. Especially since I can slide them right down over my footwear so they’re easy to quickly remove.

    What I try to do in this season (very cold in the morning, lovely and hot in the afternoon), is wearing trousers with tights (or in my case, hold-ups) underneath them. When the temperature rises I take off the tights. Mind you, I need to bring different shoes with me as I cannot wear closed shoes with bare feet. Is this any help? No, not really haha, as you could have changed your purple tights as well.

    I found this fix by accident one day when I got a run in my hose. The answer was fishnets! I found them to be buttery soft and warm, they added pattern, and because of the holes, were self-regulating in temperature changes. They also don’t look as heavy as opaque tights. Nude-to-you or black seem to work best, at a distance they can be barely perceptible and don’t overwhelm an outfit. Depending on your skin tone, nude-to-you fishnets can be a little tricky to find though.

    Those Vog boots! So beautiful on you. I love this outfit so much that I immediately used the link to purchase the jacket which was 50% off! Also I checked out eshakti and am trying to decide what not to buy! Thank you for continuing to inspire my daily outfits.
