Hi Guys! It is the MOST beautiful day ever in NYC today which means it’s time to pull out the maxi dresses and jean jackets! I am such a summer girl that I stalk the weather app on my phone around this time to watch the temperatures go up. I am so excited to put away my coats and get a little sun on these pasty arms and legs!

Anyways, let’s talk about this outfit! It is always a tricky thing to transition into new seasons. I find that in the spring I am too hot with a coat, but too cold without one, so layering is key. I love layering under dresses, like I did in this post last year and I love the idea of a jean jacket. It is my go-to in between seasons as the weight is perfect. I also love the look of tying a jean jacket around your waist when you get too hot. Super cute! Another cute spring transition idea is to pair fall/winter booties with spring dresses during the transition. I have gotten so much wear out of these Steve Edelman booties. They are SO comfortable and currently are on sale for $70! I love them paired with this dress.

This weekend Matt and I are headed to Newport Rhode Island for our babymoon! I can’t wait to have some one on one time with my hunky baby daddy :). Also, make sure to check back on Friday for my 6 month bumpdate! A lot has changed since my last one! Phew!
