Will someone please buy me one of these?

Dressing for spring is tricky. In the mornings you can almost see your breath, so you pile on the layers or a heavy coat, only to be sweating your ass off 3 hours later. It’s hard to know how to dress. I always feel like the worst parent ever when I send my daughter to school in shorts and sandals because after checking Weather Bug ten times on my iphone, it says it will be 78 degrees, only to get outside and see it’s only like 40. And because we’re running late like pretty much every day, there’s no time to change. Thankfully, it’s a short drive to school and my car heats up fast. Oops.

For me, the best solution to this is light layering. A tee under a light sweater under a denim or light jacket does the trick. But sometimes I want to zhush up the layers, and right now I’m really coveting floral blazers. They feel so right now, so fresh. I know floral is a very obvious and literal print to choose for spring, but it always feels right. And in a blazer? So right. I love them with jeans and a tee, with shorts to make a suit, or over a dress. It ups the ante on any outfit. But I think my favorite effect is mixing it with another print-especially stripes. A striped tee, floral blazer and jeans is as perfect as it gets for me right now. And the cool thing is, the floral blazer comes in every price point. Everyone from Forever 21 to Stella McCartney is whipping them out, so for as little as $30, you can welcome one of these beauties into your closet. I have had my eye on one particular one for a couple months now. What’s your favorite?
