Good-bye, winter! My mind has decided it's spring already. But how do you stay warm in 40-degree weather without a winter coat? Say hello to layering.


Slip-ons ... oh, how I've missed you! We finally reached temperatures in the 40s over the weekend. I kid you not, there are people going around in shorts as if we're having beach weather. It's not quite warm enough to be wearing shorts for me, but I did not hesitate to break out my Vans slip-ons. I just couldn't wait to wear them again.

This is the thing. We're less than two weeks away from spring, but it sure doesn't look like spring is just around the corner in these parts. My mind, however, has already bid farewell to winter, so I'm trying to forego the heavy clothes the minute I get the chance. But how do you stay warm in 40-degree weather without a winter coat? Say hello to layering.

The Art of Layering

There was a time when I used to avoid layering because I thought it made everything look bulky and it made me look chunky. That's because I just didn't know how to layer, or how to do it right.

I have not, by any means, mastered the art of layering, but I've definitely improved my layering skills over the years through trial and error and inspiration from others. Below are just a few simple tips on how to make layering work for chilly spring days.
