Spring is in the air...which in the mid-west means the temperature goes back and forth between the 40's and the 70's on a pretty consistent basis until about May. Until then I dress in lightweight layers to keep warm and cool all at once.  It's a science!  I have found the best way to layer in the spring is to focus on light to medium weight cardigans and jackets.  When choosing these top layer pieces I love finding items that are both versatile and eye catching.  After all...they are what people will see first! I also always try to wear a base layer that will look cute on it's own if I remove the top layer so I have options throughout the day if the weather starts flip-flopping. =)

This spring I've found a few great top layer of my favorites has been this ivory colored mixed media jacket. While the color is super neutral and can pair with a million and one things, I love that it still stands out with it's faux leather detailing. The faux-leather sleeves and back look so rich and really take this jacket to another level.  The shape is great too...the waterfall draping in the front and cropped back is so flattering on so many body types! This will definitely be a go-to all season long!

Here are a few more of my favorite top layer options for spring:

Are you still grabbing for jackets where you are or is the weather already super hot?  Whatever the weather, enjoy your day!
