Get the Look : Roses and Ruffles

Ah spring — the time of year spent dreaming of floaty summer dresses and days on the beach while wearing that winter coat you vowed to burn the first day temperatures hit 65. Transitional dressing is a challenge even the most advanced fashionistas sometimes struggle with, but with just a few tips and tricks you can avoid making a major fashion faux pas and stay warm or cool or dry or whatever, can Mother Nature please just get over this mood swing moment??

Fashion director for the Sartorialist, Jenny Walton's style game is always on point but this ruffled get-up has me particularly excited. Her classic white shirt and pencil skirt are far from boring with ruffle details that are right on-trend, and the pops of color from her 3D floral necklace and bright clutch add just enough punch to really make her stand out from the crowd. Simple base colors mean you won't look out of place in your peacoat in the morning and rolled up sleeves in the afternoon. Shop pieces inspired by this perfect transitional outfit below, and then go back to daydreaming about shorts weather.
