16 Fredericksburg Parent and Family • March 2018 Forget winter, spring is coming. Is your closet ready? What better time than spring to freshen things up? Eh, that might be cliché, but let's roll with it. Here's a look at six must-have pieces that are not only versatile but will brighten up your wardrobe. 6 Spring Standouts First up, a fit- ted jean jacket. This one that I am wearing is by Kensie. A medium wash will be the most versa- tile. Pair it with dresses or skirts and booties for a casual look. You can find similar jackets pretty much anywhere… try Target, Old Navy, H&M or Nordstrom. Second, a chambray shirt. Again, a medium wash would be the most ver- satile. Mine is from T.J.Maxx. Tie it and wear with a pencil skirt (bonus points if the skirt is floral). Leave it open over a tank top or buttoned up with leggings. Third, open-toe booties. These are perfect with dress- es, skirts or jeans, and they allow your toes a bit of that fresh spring air! Some of my favorites are from DSW. Fourth, break out the floral! This bag is from Aldo. But don't stop there! Think about floral skirts (most of mine are from LuLaRoe), floral shoes, tops or scarves. All the floral! Don't be afraid to pattern mix. Floral patterns pair great with stripes! WRITTEN BY LORRAINE SERBINSKI Fifth, lightweight scarves. I am not quite ready to give up my scarves, so I have a handful of lightweight ones on hand. Check Target, Nordstrom or T.J.Maxx. Hey, it's spring! It's time to bust out the self-tanning lotion. I like Jergens Natural Glow. If your legs are blindingly pale like mine, try this. I only use it on my legs. It is easy to apply, doesn't smell and it's safer than suntanning. Sixth, an olive vest. Probably the most versatile piece. Wear it with jeans, skirts or dresses. It makes a great layering piece that doesn't require much fuss. Bonus: rain in style
