Fashion Friday- Transitioning to Spring

Happy Friday, friends!

It’s been a rough week, I even turned my ankle yesterday trying to run it out.  Ugh!  I’m hoping with a little tlc it gets better quickly.

Before I get to Fashion Friday, I wanted to thank you guys again for all the condolences about Reina.  It has been really heartwarming to get so many kind notes.

Our friends dropped off this beautiful new dogwood tree last night for us to plant in the yard to remember her.  It was such a sweet gesture and exactly what we needed.

I’m trying to keep moving forward, so bare with me as I try to be as positive as possible.  My motto is: fake it until ya make it!

Fashion Friday

Asheville seems to come alive in the spring with blooms everywhere you look.  Everyone seems to come out and fill the outdoor seating in downtown restaurants and the sun shines ever so brightly on the mountains which slowly turn shades of fresh green that are nearly impossible to replicate.

I got to have lunch the other day in downtown.  It was just warm enough to eat outdoors and embrace the changing seasons.

I wore a simple navy dress with short sleeves and carried a light beige cashmere sweater for the early morning.

I love pairing lightweight infinity scarf’s with boots this time of year to make the summer dresses a little more weather appropriate.

This one has dragonflies on it, which is perfect for this time of year!

Since it wasn’t quite warm enough for sandals (it has been this week!,) I paired my dress with my favorite Nashville cowboy boots and boot socks.

My legs are still super pale from not seeing the sun for months, but the older I get, the less I care about things like that.

Buy the look:

Navy Dress: Macys, similar here

Scarf: Charming Charlies, similar here

Boot Socks: Altar’d State, similar here

Boots: Twisted X, similar here

What a great time of year for fashion!  It can be a lot of fun figuring out the right combination of summer and winter pieces to put together to create that perfect spring look.  With a little care though, you can transition into spring with style.

I hope you have a simply amazing weekend!  Monday I have some beautiful pictures of the tulips at Biltmore to show you guys.  It’s going to be a great way to start off a fresh new week.

Thanks to Nicole for the Fit and Fashionable linkup!  I’m also linking up with Joylynne Shane for Fashion Friday.

Your turn!

What is your favorite thing to wear in the transitioning season?

      Thanks Jess. I really appreciate it. We really miss her. Each day has been a little better now that we are past that shock factor.

    A suggestion! When showing clothes why don’t you go to some of the local boutiques and feature their outfits and accessories. I am sure you could get a lot of local support doing this.

    • JulieWunder April 12, 2015 at 8:12 am - Reply

      I’d love to do that! If you know any that want to get involved, let me know!

    That tree is the nicest thing. What a great way to remember your pup :).
    Love the outfit, as always. I would love a cute pair of cowboy boots like that. I’m going to Texas in October, so maybe I’ll get a legit pair 🙂

      Thanks so much Nicole. It was such a nice gift.
      You should get a pair of boots. They are the best shoes I’ve ever bought. Worth every penny.

      Me too! Fashion is so much easier in dresses- in my opinion!

    Love the boot topper and boot look with skirts and dresses. You are adorable. I am SO ready for spring fashion. I got a pedicure three weeks ago in anticipation. We’re so close.

      Thanks Bri! They definitely add some flare to my favorite boots. Thanks for stopping by today and commenting.

    I love scarfs! I think that is the easiest accessory to jazz up any outfit! Looking good my friend!

    Love the dress with the boots.
    I know you keep an emphasis on healthy living and practices but one does not have to be a dermatologist anymore to know the damage that the sun can do to your skin. Just wanted to make a follow up comment about your comment about the paleness of your legs.
    That dogwood was a very thoughtful gift.
