The temperatures soared past 80 degrees last week, and if you're anything like me, your closet is still looking dark and woolly. And that spring pedicure? Well you don’t have it, yet. Here are some tips on how to transition from winter to spring - chicly.
1. Wear knee-length boots sans pantyhose. This is a fun way to go bare-legged without being cold - you know how those early summer nights can get chilly - and get the last few wears out of your boots putting them in storage. I like the boots with a knee-length midi skirt or a short, ruffled A-line.
2. Wear your filmy summer dress with a chunky cardigan. This summer it’s all about mixing textures, so we say take it all the way downtown - as in Soho - with a light floral print dress (Last year’s is fine.) Pair it with a neutral cardigan. This look is best in clean fleshy tones. And, of course, don’t forget the boots.

Lilly Pulitzer, the grand dame of all things girlie, preppy-chic, has died.
She died at her home Sunday afternoon in Florida. She was 81.
What started as a simple dress Pulitzer had designed for her to hide orange juice stains - her first venture into business was selling fresh-squeezed juice near her husband's groves - is now known world- wide as the world's most colorful ready-to-wear women's wear brand bursting with tropical prints, bold colors and joy.
