The official onset of every season is always marked by some seasonal sartorial milestone for me – in the winter, it’s needing to cover up my chilly fingers with gloves, in the summer, it’s managing to go sans-jacket up on our deck well into the evening, and for spring, it’s being able to confidently bare my legs without freezing to death. Naturally, the first thing I want to do when this momentous occasion comes around each year is to break out my favourite spring dresses right away, but since there’s still a little nip in the air, I’ve developed a few strategies to rocking my spring dresses (like this Aritzia stunner I last wore in Maui!) while remaining cozy and warm. Click through to read it all!

First of all, I can’t stress enough how handy a military or utility jacket like this Gentle Fawn piece is – it’s a perfect layering piece if you’re still feeling the chill (I find this style is usually a looser cut so staying true to size isn’t a problem, but if you’re worried about it being roomy enough to layer with, size up from your usual size!), it’s light enough to transition perfectly into summer and it helps temper super femme pieces, giving them a little edge (this military jacket + floral dress ensemble from last year is a good example!).
I also love the drama of a long trench over a light, above-the-knee dress, particularly if you use a really worn men’s belt to cinch everything in at the waist. This allows you to get away with a breezy bare-legged style without actually sacrificing any warmth at all!
Finally, I’m all about the athleisure trend these days and I love the unexpected pairing of pretty little spring pieces with layers and sneakers. I wore this Aritzia piece with an oversized men’s shirt, a light cashmere pullover and my leather jacket the other day with my New Balances shoes – it was the perfect way to not only bridge masculine with femme aesthetics, but to bring a little lightness to my usual winter uniform.
Do you guys have any strategies for working your favourite spring pieces into your wardrobes now? Tell me in the comments!

    I tend to take a similar strategy to working my spring pieces into my wardrobe.

    I usually layer a spring or summer dress with a warmer cardigan or a jacket like you did, and I wear booties. It's a perfect way to show a bit of skin, without freezing half to death.

    I absolutely agree, trench coat or military jacket over a light, over the knee dress are my favourite combos every Spring! I think that outfits like those make me feel very feminine and elegant but still very laid-back. 🙂 You look beautiful in this outfit and I like your sunnies and dress very much.

    This dress & jacket combo is total perfection! I love them together and am sooo loving that jacket! I've been hunting for a great military style jacket but in the last 5 years have ordered 3 different ones online and haven't been happy with any of them (one wrinkles like crazy, one just didn't fit the way I wanted it to, and one was way too thick and heavy) – so the hunt continues… after I bring all my other ones to a consignment shop! 😉 LOVE Gentle Fawn though and this jacket looks just gorgeous! I'm still in a winter coat & scarf & boots over here on the east coast, but we're slowly getting there… + temps, at least! xo!
