Springtime is all about renewal and rejuvenation. Winter slows us all down, and for a short while the cold and gray is nice, but there comes a time when we need to crawl out of bed and jump-start our lives again. We pack up our heavy winter clothes and bring lightness back into our lives. Although it is still not warm enough to be in full hot weather mode, the ability to walk to school in the morning without being bundled up in a huge, bulky parka has been refreshing. The street style on campus this week had elements of both spring and fall, making for a smooth seasonal transition.

Paola Capo-Garcia sported an earth-tone ensemble on a recent mild afternoon. When it comes to the transition from winter to spring layering is key. The mornings and evenings are still chilly and warrant a little cover up, but the afternoons call for cotton shirts and capri pants. To finish your spring look it is essential to have a unique pair of flats and statement sunnies.
Emily Yang combines jewel tones and lace into this flirty spring look. Her nude and black lace top is right on trend for this season as countless American designers used the combo in their 2013 spring collections. A ruby skirt brightens up Emily’s muted top, but instead of sandals try a pair of oxfords in a contrasting color to give hip vibe to a simple outfit.
Finally, Divya Singh’s cobalt blouse caught my eye on campus. Her look was classic and effortless with a pair of black skinnies and a quilted bag that made the blue pop! Any solid color blouse will wear well through all of spring and summer, because it is easily paired with high-waisted shorts and maxi skirts.
