Guest Post: A Journey in Style

I am the luckiest blogger in the world to have had so many of you offer to guest post while I'm on this little business trip in Mexico. I'm super excited about the first blogger in the series, as I've been following Kate's blog forever and get so much inspiration from her. She's put together an awesome guide to transitioning clothing through the seasons, but I'll let her tell you all about it!


Hi there! My name is Kate and I blog at A Journey in Style. I think my blog really has lived up to its name over the past few years. I made a lot of bad choices when I first started blogging: running out and buying something because I saw someone else wearing it, buying something just because it was under $10, and buying items with only one season in mind. 

One of the best ways to make the most out of your closet is to buy pieces that can be worn in both in warm weather and cold weather. Now, that's not to say you can't buy shorts or turtlenecks, but some pieces surely do transition better than others. Today I'll show you three pieces that easily transition into warm weather wear. I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring! (Big thanks to Bri for letting me guest post!)

A brightly colored dress can work in colder weather when layered over a shirt and adding tights. When warmer weather rolls around, lose the tights and add a statement necklace.

Dark colored skirts need not only be saved for winter weather. You can make such a skirt work for warmer weather by pairing it with a brightly colored top.

Don't forget that shirts used for layering can be worn on their own and look great. The second outfit could easily become work appropriate by swapping the shorts for a skirt and adding a necklace (like this).

Admittedly, most of my transitioning revolves around making a warm-weather piece work for cold weather, but that's because I used to only wear jeans and hoodies in the winter. Once I started teaching, I bought a couple sweaters, but relied on layering to stay warm rather than buying exclusively cold-weather pieces. Do you have exclusively winter-only or summer-only clothes? Do you prefer transitioning from summer to winter, or winter to summer?
