1x3: Easter

Easter in Minnesota can only mean one thing: You're dyin' to wear a spring dress.

There will be champagne, and champagne looks good with a spring dress. But, a chance of snow is not unheard of. Here's a guide to making your dress work in a range of temps. The key is to keep it straight and tunic-like. No flirty A-lines, sorry. This post isn't just for Easter; remember it all spring long while temps flip-flop. 

So, pull out your stock of neutral shoes, pour the champagne, here we go:

60 degrees

This is our best case scenario, right? Bare legs. You've been waiting for this all winter. Whatever you do, don't get too carried away: NO Sandals. I'm serious, people. Peep-toe booties in a neutral hue are completely versatile, and keep you safely in spring, not summer. (Also great for transitioning summer to fall... go buy a pair, these are a wardrobe basic)

50 degrees

Remember Bonus Boot Season?

It's still here. If you're going without tights, keep the boots light - think tan or caramel. This is a total compromise from your 60 degree dreams, but at least you won't look crazy.

Also important here: Sleeves. 

40 degrees

Ok, bare legs are totally out of the question, but your dress isn't.

As long as it's a fairly straight line, layer some cigarette pants underneath. Keep them short enough to show some ankle (so scandalous!), and keep your shoes light and spring-y. If you're feeling depressed about the weather, just go dance around in your bikini. I do it all the time.
