5 Best Ways to Start Dressing for Spring When It’s Still Winter

We have been spoiled with a “heat wave” this week here in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and with this beautiful weather it is easy to question … What exactly should I be wearing this time of year?

Maybe you’ve noticed retailers are pushing Spring right now as jackets are on sale, sweaters are nowhere to be found, and snow boots have been pushed to the clearance racks. Well, we have 5 tips below to help you navigate the changing of the seasons while staying on trend and weather appropriate.

Show your ankles.

But it’s Winter, shouldn’t I be in boots? No, let those ankles breathe! Maybe they are a little pale, but who cares! Trust me when I tell you this little gesture will trick your brain into thinking it’s a balmy 75 degrees. Throw on a pair of sneakers, give your jeans a little roll, and pair with a cozy sweater to keep you warm!

Lose the coat.

There are just too many non-coat options out there to force yourself to wear your bulky winter coat in this 40-degree weather. It is all about the layers. Pair a cozy sweater with a wool wrap or fun poncho and you’ll be free from carrying around all that extra bulk.

Mix materials.

Try mixing in light Spring materials with your heavy Winter wear. You can do this by adding your favorite spring blouse under a winter sweater. Add a bright necklace to your Winter grey ensemble. Try a light-weight scarf with your Winter blazer.

Wear that distressed denim.

Sporting distressed denim with your winter wear is a great way to add texture to your outfit. Plus, distressed denim is too fun and comfy to put away for half the year. Pair it with heels and a blouse for date night or with your favorite flannel and sneakers!

Transition to light sweaters.

Now is a great time of year to add some light sweaters to your wardrobe. Aren’t you sick of the thick wool sweaters you’ve been sporting for months now? I sure am! Again, layers are key and putting a light sweater under a vest or jacket will keep you warm and bring you straight to Spring.

Check out some looks below that will help inspire you to start transitioning your wardrobe from Winter to Spring. As always, follow us on social media to see our newest inventory!

Hi, We’re Back!!

The Skirt the Possibilities blog has been away for a while, but we are back in business! I am so excited to share our latest happenings with you all! This blog will keep you up to date on what is going on in the world of Skirt the Possibilities and our fashion community.

Did you know Skirt the Possibilities expanded? Coco moved her business from Eau Claire, WI to Wales, WI (just outside of Milwaukee near Delafield). Although she moved, we still have a Rep in the Twin Cities! Skirt the Possiblilities is excited to be able to expand the reach of the business throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Luckily our two great states share A LOT in common when it comes to fashion . . . Winter coats, Winter boots, wool socks, hats, mittens . . . wait, sorry, I think I just caught a case of the Winter blues! Thank goodness Spring is around the corner, well we are pretending at least. We definitely got Spring Fever at the StyleMax show we just attended on Sunday. When you are buying tanks and dresses, it is a little difficult not to yearn for those days on The Lake (we all know, if you live in Minnesota or Wisconsin, you have a lake you call The Lake). At StyleMax we spent the entire day visiting our favorite vendors buying for Spring and Fall 2017. I already have at least 5 things I NEED to have, well maybe 10 (shhhh don’t tell my boyfriend!) We bought jeans, skirts, tops, sweaters, dresses, accessories, and more! I just cannot wait for you to see all the treasures. It was my first time helping Coco buy, and I had the time of my life! Check out our photos below from the trip to Chicago!

Excited to keep you all posted! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook & Instagram.

Well, it happened summer is over.  Sad.  But Fall is fun and I do love all the fall sweaters, tunics,skirts, jackets, leggings and of course boots!  Skirt the Possibilities is literally hitting the road this Fall with all of the incredible inventory we have ordered.  First stop is the Twin Cities for a show in Mendota Heights and then Edina.  The next week will be crazy as we will be stopping in Des Moines for a quick stop then shows in Kansas City and Tulsa.

Of Course Eau Claire will be is hosting some STP Parties!  The first one will be at Floors -N-More  on Brackett on November 5Th at 5:00.  Then ……. a great popup market Champagne N’ Shopping on November 19th at Wild Ridge Cubhouse!

Check out the Skirt the Possibilities facebook page for pictures of some of the Fall Loot!  You can always email  if you would like an appointment to look or help getting some outfits together. In the meantime enjoy the crisp mornings and the fun the new season!

Cheers!
