What to Wear | March 2014

This is an awkward time of year for getting dressed. We all have spring on the brain - not only because we are SICK. AND. TIRED. of winter but also because, well... look at the date. It will be March in two days. Spring starts (officially, according to the lying-cheating-calendar) in 22 days. 

So in case you've been living in a windowless basement or you reside in San Diego, you probably don't get what's so awkward part about getting dressed this time of year. We are experiencing SUB-ARCTIC TEMPERATURES. Today, for example, if the actual temperature reaches above 0 (zero!) we will probably be forced to jump for joy. Yet, earlier this morning I used the words "dress Spring-y" to a client. NOT RIGHT. Stores are starting to show florals and pastels and - gasp! - open toed shoes! Yet we are all shivering in our wool-blend turtlenecks.

I thought I'd cheer you up by posting a bonus What to Wear guide for March. This is the outfit you would want to wear to a (supposed) Spring photo shoot even when you apparently live in Hoth. Fake it till you make it... to Spring.

Spring flowers that still read "winter". Knee-high boots to cover your cold legs. And a happy, red cardigan. (Full length down coat will be removed before a single shutter is snapped.) 

Schedule a March session and give yourself an excuse to buy some new in-between-seasons clothes. Check the calendar for available dates or contact me to request an appointment date. Until the shivering ceases, we will be shooting on location inside the warm, cozy studio.

P.S. If you happen to really, really like one of the items above, please don't be mad at me. I use Polyvore where skirts can cost $3,500 and a necklace can run you $35. This site is best for LOOKING not shopping. Unless a $3,500 skirt doesn't bother you. And if that's the case, get one for me, too, while you're at it.
