While some of you are already sipping cocktails on patio decks in floppy hats (h8 you), the rest of us are trying to get away with short sleeves and bare knees on those rare days that the sun is feeling generous. So as you can imagine, it can be kind of frustrating feeling like it's June coming in through the windows, but being hit by a gust with teeth the second we step out onto the front steps. It takes a little bit of finesse to join into the spring fashion excitement, but not walk with goosebumps the whole day through. But with some clever layering, it could be done! Below are 7 tips on how to layer your spring items so you don't catch a cold come Friday. Which is your favorite?:

Forgo the usual egg and corn beef skillet and instead go somewhere a little more interesting for brunch. Trade in your sunnysides for gouda brauwurst and enjoy the ambiance of a sunny but dusty room, decorated with persian rugs and saphire blue leather couches. While you order the first round of mimosas, look cute but comfortable in a vintage linen dress, dressed up with a tapestry-like cotton jacket. Keep the bohemian feel going with a wide rimmed floppy hat, but then anchor the look down with a pair of thick flatforms. Now grab the waiter and order a round of coffee while you wait for your food!

Ever seen a trend, liked it, but weren't necessarily sure if you could style it in a "you" kind of way? "How We Wore It" will show you how different women braved the trend and played with it until they got it to fit in with their styles- and hopefully that'll inspire us to poke a toe out of our comfort zones and try something new, too! Today's trend will be monochrome outfits. Happy creating!

Be tempted by the steamy bowls of pho but keep your eye on the prize and pick up a couple of banh mi sandwiches. Chat about what you want to do that weekend over bitefuls of pickled carrots and shredded chicken, and leave room for a few pistachio and lavender macarons as desert. Now that it's getting warmer out, feel free to trade in your jeans for a vintage suede mini, and play up the tapestry-work texture by pairing it with suede sandals and purses in complementing colors. Tone down the busy look with a white blouse, and break up the over-load of suede with a fringe leather jacket.

Can we take a moment and talk about how the puffer coats have been thrown back into the basement?! We're half way through March and it's time to start thinking about which popsicle-colored dresses we want to wear and what sort of sandals will be making their way back into our rotation. But while most days are warm and full of patio-drinking promise, the wind still has a habit of sneaking up on us and our bare arms when we least expect it. So to help you navigate this weird spring-but-not-spring territory, here are 8 layering tips on how to dress for spring...when it's still kind of (but not really) winter:
