With the sprinkle of cloudy days we’ve been having here in Southern California, we’re finding it hard to pack up and store our favorite winter layers just yet. Our latest Chic of the Week has mastered the art of balancing both winter and spring with a darling combination of sundress-meets-glamorous cape coat. If you’re still struggling to dress for cooler spring days like we are, this Chic post is for you.

Meet our latest wardrobe inspiration, Alden!

Chic of the Week: Alden’s Transitional Tips

We love how Alden transforms her sundress and boot combination into an entirely different outfit by effortlessly throwing on her coat (not to mention the cute matching boot socks!). There’s something so timeless about a camel colored cape coat. We know that this trend certainly won’t be going away anytime soon. Alden’s monogramed clutch adds a touch of personalization and sweetness. Here’s what Alden loves about her transitional look…

I love this because it’s a great transition outfit for spring! I adore winter white, but I think the blue and green scarf gives it that extra springy touch. I’m able to wear this dress now with a cape and boots, or later with either nude pumps or metallic sandals.

Thanks for the tips, Alden! We can’t wait to mix and match our own winter and spring faves.
