Transitional Dressing For Spring

Transitional Dressing really is a laborious task. You know that summer dress really isn’t going to cut it when that lingering winter breeze catches you by surprise. We Brits, get very excited by the sun, we whip out our summer attire. Then regret it when we are freezing our butts off for the rest of the day. Then again that woolly jumper we thought would be a good idea, becomes an annoying thing to carry around.

I was going to a casting in West London yesterday and I just stood at my wardrobe for about 15 minutes deciding how to dress for the day.  I finally decided on this pretty stripy summer dress from Jarlo (they have a yellow and pink  version that reminds me of a couple of the Mulberry SS12 dresses). Also my new chambray shirt from Mango as a light cover-up.  I knew I was only going out for the afternoon, but if I was going to be out any later, I would have taken a pair of tights in my bag. I have just bought some pretty pastel blue ones that would have gone nicely with this outfit.

Talking about my legs, I have no idea why they look so white in my photo’s.  I literally slapped the fake bake on for the last few days and people have commented about my tanned legs, very strange.  Maybe it is true that the camera doesn’t lie and it is exposing the real truth of my pale legs.

Do you have any tips for transitional dressing?

    I always take a big pashmina with me wherever I go in case it gets a bit chily x

      Pashmina is a good one, they fold up into practically nothing xx

    Transitional dressing is so hard! I love how you’ve done it though – the dress is beautiful, and a denim shirt as a cover up is perfect for inbetween weather!
