Being from a colder area, I know the full reality of a true “spring” wardrobe. This kind of wardrobe includes layers, light sweaters, and jeans (as opposed to cropped pants). As much as I’d love to dress in cropped pants, tees, and other spring pieces you might see on girls from the south or the west coast, it’s just not realistic for where I live. We are still receiving snow flurries and temperatures below 40 degrees. I learned my lesson the other day when I tried to cuff my jeans and forgo a jacket. Needless to say, I was longing for my fuzzy socks at home.
So, I decided to do a celebrity-inspired “look for less” based on the picture above. I know it’s from quite a while ago, but I still think it could be used for inspiration this spring. This is an excellent outfit for those of us transitioning from freezing cold temperatures to just mildly cold temperatures (rather than warm temperatures). I love how it incorporates the light colors of spring, while remaining practical by including a light sweater and a jacket for layering. Personally, I would opt for a solid sweater instead of the striped one she is wearing in this photo. Of course, I love the scarf because I love everything leopard print. I’m sure the pieces she is wearing are way out of my price range, so I found some cheaper alternatives. This way anyone can recreate the outfit without ruining their budget. I tried to include a cheaper option and one that is a bit higher up on the price scale. What do you think of Rosie’s outfit?
