Spring Staples and A Fickle Friend

Spring Separates

During springtime in Georgia, there is no telling what kind of day you'll wake up to. Georgia weather is my fickle friend. Some days she's grumpy-grouchy, blowing sharp breezes that whistle down foggy streets and chill your bones. Others she's horribly depressed, crying her eyes out in dramatic rainstorms. Still other days, the times I like her the most, she's sunny and warm and happy to see me. So happy, in fact, she gets a little clumsy and humbly bestows me with an uncomfortably noticeable cowgirl boot tan line.

I do love when the weather starts to get warmer so I can start pulling out all my favorite spring staples. This time around, I've come up with 11 (my lucky number ;) separates you can wear all season and different ways to wear them. The list includes options ranging from what to wear on rainy days (Hunter boots) to really hot days (swingy sundress) to days that will switch on you (those are the days to bring a scarf for your shoulders). Separates are the best way to build any wardrobe as they give endless options for everyday wear.

1. rain boots - pair with dark wash skinny jeans and a navy rain coat like this
2. denim jacket - pair with a breezy sundress, converse, and a square scarf tied in your hair like this
3. linen tee shirt - wear with cutoffs and a baseball cap like this
4. sundress - pair with platform wedges like these and load up on bangles
5. light scarf - pair with skinny jeans and a bright tank top
6. mock neck tank - pair with a bucket bag and gladiator sandals and tie a bright scarf on your purse
7. gladiator sandals - pair with patterned shorts, a simple v-neck, and a pretty necklace like this one
8. bucket bag (similar) - pair with cropped skinny jeans and platform sandals like these
9. patterned shorts - pair with Converse and a crop top like this
10. white sneakers - pair with a swingy sundress and oversize sunglasses
11. bright lipstick - pair with all of the above for a powerful pucker

What are your favorite spring staples?
