If you live in the New Jersey or New York area then you understand what I mean when I say that the weather lately has been nothing shy of bipolar. And as April proves to be staying true to its roots, there has been plenty of showers, which we can only hope will result in May flowers and warmer weather. Thus, on a day like the day pictured above I needed an outfit for warm temperatures, yet overcast skies and rain showers.
I call this dressing for transitional season weather and I find that the key to successfully achieving this is layers. The weather was warm enough for bare legs and with that I jumped on the opportunity and began styling this Umgee floral embroidered skirt that I adore.
Also, I purchased these Forever 21 patent leather combat boots online a couple months ago when they were marked down with an additional savings to a mere $13 and I could not be more obsessed with them. I’ve been practically living in them and they are as comfortable and practical as they are stylish and edgy. Perfect for the chance of rain showers, I paired them with black crew socks that hit just slightly above the boots.
On top I decided to choose a lightweight white sweater so that the skirt would remain the focal point of the look. I finished it off with a lightweight and hooded rain repellent RVCA jacket and the prettiest handbag I have ever seen. One of my best friends gifted me with this Coach crossbody bag for my birthday and I’m so incredibly in love with it. You can’t see it super clearly in these photos, but I’ll make sure to have it on display in an upcoming post because it is serious perfection.
I decided to keep my makeup and accessories to a minimal just choosing a pair of thin gold hoops I wear constantly and a bold lip color that I am currently crushing on. It’s a LORAC PRO Satin Lip Color in Sangria which is a gorgeous berry mauve color. It goes on effortlessly smooth and lasts for hours. Plus it’s easy to reapply without looking overdone or cracking like some lipsticks I have tried.
