Weekly Whistle: Freshening Up with Transitional Wear featuring South Boutique

IMG_8391

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

With the weather being almost-seventies today, I have been craving spring and fresh chicken salad *wink* Ah…there is nothing like a homemade chicken salad sandwich on a sunny spring afternoon…

Chicken salad aside, the weather got me to thinking about transitioning my wardrobe during this awkward time between seasons. Just to put it into perspective, I was in shorts and a t-shirt today–and tomorrow, I will be dressing for “90% chance of wintry mix and snow”–My goodness, Mother Nature! All I want is some warmth and sunshine–please, no more snow!

Okay–okay–I am not a weather blogger, so let me get back to the topic at hand here–freshening up with transitional wear.

For this week’s VIP Weekly Whistle, I am going to show y’all how I styled a sweet dress from South Boutique in Trussville, Alabama for chilly days and also for warmer days. Let’s take a look at the details, shall we!
