Yesterday in the office I asked the girls what I should blog about today. At first we joked about “how to dress for spring when spring is 30 degrees and snowing” and then, literally as we ate a huge plate of muffin tops, decided maybe “how to dress to conceal you winter hibernation weight”. But in all seriousness, it’s not fun to buy spring clothes right now. Trying on pastel colors and short dresses with pasty, dry skin and an extra few pounds is anything but uplifting. But you know what is always fun to buy? SHOES!!!
So many fun finds– jeweled, patterned, bright colors and staple neutrals. From all sorts of places from H&M to Bergdorfs (and even Talbots!) I love that people are having more fun with shoes these days (some too much fun, there is a BEVY of hideous platform/ 90’s throwback footwear out there right now.)
So here is a round up of some of my favorite spring shoes– both that you can wear now while a bit chilly and later when it’s hot. Click the images for links, except for the pink ikat loafers which you can find HERE!
On Henry: Sweatshirt (omg, so cozy) // raincoat (similar) // jeans // sneakers
I’m psyched to partner with Joules on todays post not only because I love their clothes for our whole family, but also because they are giving my readers 20% off their purchase with code EOS2018 ! Can we say Happy Friday?? I am always impressed with the quality of Joules clothing- I’d venture to say it’s the most well made children’s clothing out there. Henry wears clothes HARD, and these last a long time.
I picked my current faves for everyone in the family below and hope it helps you find something fab!
I am so over the cold. Have I said that too many times on a Friday Fashion post? Maybe it’s because I want to light every sweater and pair of boots in my closet ON FIRE right now. I’m so sick of everything. I’m actually pondering doing a cut throat closet clean-out (like, a Marie Kondo-on-steriods kind of edit) before springtime and either having a big tag sale at my office to raise money for charity or something. What do you guys think?
Anyways, even though I know I wouldn’t be able to wear a lot of this until spring, I partnered with longtime EOS supporter Halsbrook for a post today in which I styled five springtime outfits that would make me very happy to wear. Classic, Audrey-Meets-Jackie- Meets-Kate Middleton kind of outfits, which is what I think if when I think of Halsbrook. Plus they are currently having their Friends & Family sale so everything is 20% off (except for those notated with a * which are part of their Essentials Collection)! So if you live in warmer climates, congrats to you for being smarter than me, and you can probably rock these right now! For those of us suffering in our dirty puffy coats and Uggs— there is hope. There is always hope.

Even though we are buried in snow here in New England (WITH MORE ON THE WAY- OMG, KILL ME), Easter and Spring IS technically right around the corner. So today I picked outfits for you AND the kids with sunshine on my mind. Also, this took me like 5 hours and I’m burnt out so I don’t have much more to say on the matter…. :)
