SPRING STYLE TRANSITION + $100 Gift Card Giveaway

With spring being just around the corner, I decided to team up with 3 of my blogger girlfriends to share our favorite spring style transition looks and do a $100 giftcard giveaway! Keep reading to find out more!

It is currently snowing in Dayton Ohio, so it may not feel like it but I promise spring is just around the corner. This season is can be tricky if you live in the Midwest. Retailers are marking down sweaters & good luck finding winter gloves or a hat right now (my daughter’s winter gloves are not water resistant and I’m having no luck finding her a pair). The stores are pushing pastels, sandals, and woven bags. All cute, but how do we style that now?

I’m sharing today 3 pieces I picked up at Target on Monday and how I’d style them now (with a snowstorm outside) and at the end of next month when it’s warmer!


The first item I’m styling is this pink bodysuit I found on the clearance rack at my local Target on Monday night for $8. It’s no longer available online but I’ve linked a few similar bodysuits.

I love this one because of the structured shoulders and the waffle weave pattern. Plus this neckline is so sexy!

For winter, I’m pairing it with my favorite button fly black jeansover-the-knee black boots and a vegan leather jacket. Simple, sweet, sexy and edgy. And yes, I wore this for lunch on Tuesday with my family. Fashion isn’t meant to be held for special moments.

In the spring, I’m going to pair it with a pair of black mules and probably grab a lighter layer like a blazer or denim jacket.

Next up is this tiered tan dress  It’s oversized, flowy and very light. I can honestly see myself wearing this all year with the right layers. Even on a cooler summer day as a cover up for the pool. It’s a new spring item at Target. It has pockets and with a price tag under $30, it’s worth snagging!

For February, I’m styling it with a Sherpa layer like this vest and some booties. I might even throw on some leggings on underneath, because I’m a freeze baby. Plus who is going to know but me? Well and now you.

When the snow melts, I think this dress is super cute belted with mules. I think it would also be cute with white booties, open toe sandals, and clogs. Maybe add a hat. For sure a straw bag. I was a bit giddy to see so many in my Target this week. To date my French Basket straw bag is my favorite spring/summer bag!

PS. My earrings are from a local artist, Shop Dessert Roots.

Last item I’m transition styling is the pink babydoll dress that is also in Target’s spring line. No joke, I think had this dress in hunter green in the 90’s! It’s a thicker knit, making it great for now into spring. It would be too heavy for summer. It’s a great length and really soft.

Right now, I’m styling this with warm layers. I have on fleece lined leggings, my favorite boots and a blanket scarf. This scarf is from a FabFitFun box, so I’m linking similar options.

Once it’s warmer out, I’m ditching all the layers and wearing this cute dress just as it is. Maybe grab a denim jacket (like this white one) because us Midwest girls know jean jackets are always in style. Here, I’m pairing it with woven mules and a pair of woven earrings to accessorize. This dress would be so cute with converse, heeled sandals, even a pair of cowboy boots if that’s your thing!
