Shake up the dinner routine by grabbing a friend and taking the L a few stops down to the Vietnamese neighborhood. 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.

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:

Now that it's warm out (yayaya!) put on your favorite smock dress and floppy hat and take a trolley tour of your city. Sit on the wooden seats and look outside the open windows, taking in the familiar blocks and buildings with tourist eyes. Notice coffee shops you haven't been to before, and take note of new bistros you want to eat cakes and drink wine in. But since we are still in March, bring an extra layer along in the form of a khaki coat to bundle up once the sun goes down. To keep the outfit from looking too heavy with the long and baggy lengths, try pairing it with clunky open-toe sandals and a a clean-lined, structured backpack.

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 tulle skirts. Happy creating!
