Spring Transitioning in Virginia!

So it's quite a different thing to spend a year in New York and a year in Virginia! The weather has been so crazy in both places this year and on top of everything it's just a major change from NY. I'm saddened to be here but with negativity comes positivity. The winters aren't as harsh, spring comes earlier but it can be a bit too sweltering during the summer! Either way I'm enjoying this March's warmth and I'm hoping the warmer days will beat out the cold in upcoming April. So to commemorate the warmer weather, I bought these three items which I've fallen in love with but don't I always. Put these outfits together quickly just to show 'em off.

First up we have this spikey black jacket by Fever. It's a large and I love it that way. I like my clothes loose-fitting on me. Plus I always layer like crazy so the big sizes help in that! 

 Also pictured is my thrifted short-sleeved knitted sweater. There's no tag so I couldn't even tell you the name if I wanted to. BlankNYC jeans. N.Y.L.A. wedges!

You can see a better detail on the shoulders here. ♥ 

 Second is a see-through flowered top by "Just Ginger". It looks like the brand name that's for sure. I think I'll be heavily into floral patterns this spring. It brightens up any outfit and puts me in a girly mood.

 Both these high-waisted pants and brown booties were thrifted! Booties are "9West", not certain if they're related to "Nine West" shoes?

The detail on the sleeve end, collar and bottom is my favourite. I wish I would have gotten shots of it now.

 This is the closest to detail I have. Like?

My third purchase was this top by "August Silk". It's so soft and delicate in person and the details of the front are just perfect. I combined it with an older blue dress I wore the previous summer but really wasn't thinking of wearing it this upcoming. I got bored with it pretty fast and thought it would be even more smashing as a skirt instead, it being such a vibrant denim blue color and I was right. It's even better as a high-waisted skirt. 

 I matched it with these cream lace tights. They're a bit worn, which you'll see soon >.>

 Tights >.< Haha. But anyways, I wanted a clash so I paired this outfit with my Irregular Choice booties! Perfect. I like the harsh contrast in the girly-ness of the outfit and my cloggy black wooden wedges. ♥

And the awesomeness that are my sketchy stockings are hidden from sight :) 

Well I hope you liked my outfit combination. It was quick and not that well-thought out but whatever! I have big plans for this spring/summer. Sticking to hard contrasts between the soft/girly fabrics and tops with dark accessories. Seems perfect to me! ♥ 

Until next time. Thanks for reading.
