Easy, Affordable Spring Style Updates

It's time to refresh your spring style ladies!

Know what that means?!

Open your closet, start having a panic attack at the sight of the mess, and then quickly throw everything away.

Kidding.

But, sometimes I admit, I feel like doing just that, especially when the seasons are in the middle of changing, and nothing feels like it's just right anymore, and the piles of might-wear, don't-fit, will-literally-never-wear-again-because-ew-what-was-I-thinking are just glaring at me from the floor of my closet.

With a few creative choices and a couple of fresh items, everyone can get their closest spring ready in no time (and with little money too!).

Here are some non-insane, budget friendly ways to update your winter wardrobe for spring.

Purge.

If you haven't worn it for a year, just chuck it. Donate it, give it to friend, sell it at a consignment shop, make a dog toy out of it, just remove it from your closet and never allow it to reenter again. The idea that you should hold onto some items until they come back into style is generally a bad. Even if they do fit you in 5-10 years (which, if you're like me, let's face it, they won't), they will clutter your space and probably not be in awesome shape when you're ready to bust them out again.

Lighten up with a scarf.

Light weight scarves are a fun and colorful way to add interest and spring to your winter-y wardrobe. It may not be time to ditch the sweaters entirely, but you can get rid of the fleece neck draperies.

Layer up.

You can haul out your summer dresses and pair them with a cardigan or a denim jacket. I think every chick should have a denim jacket in their wardrobes anyway, they're super versatile and classic so they really don't ever go out of style.

Wear white.

Even though the no-white-after-Labor-Day rule was made, break it. You know you've spent the winter clad in darkness to keep you warm. Now's the time to lighten up again. An inexpensive white t-shirt can replace the chunky sweater in your winter uniform, making you instantly lighter and more warm weather ready.

Start with your shoes.

The first thing I ditch when the winter season begins to make its exit are my knee high boots. Love them though I do, I get excited when spring rolls around and allows me to bare my toes in flip flops, sandals, and cute flats (click over for links to all of the featured styles).
