Spring Layers

I just spent way too much time over at The Sartorialist, a site I've heard so much about but never really took the time to explore in depth. I was searching for inspiration as to how fashionable people stay looking fashionable on rainy days, given the recent weather around the country and the fabulous thunderstorm we had here last night. But instead, I realized how my love for fall and spring wardrobes stems from the need and practicality of wearing layers. Not only do they keep outfits more interesting by allowing folks to mix and match colors and patterns, but they're essential on days like yesterday - 70 and sunny at noon, cool and rainy at 4pm.

Note the recurring pieces in these images:
spring jackets
and lots and lots of skirts!

I love spring.
