Here at our HQ’s hometown, it’s in the 70s today, and one thing is for sure – spring has more than sprung. And as much as we love warm weather, sometimes it’s hard to dress for it when you’re coming off months of the chills. I say this while regretting my decision to wear boots this morning and while eying our Marketing Director’s adorable sandals, a Crossroads find she recently pulled out of the crevasses of her closet.
What I’m saying is that it can take some time to remember how to transition, and sometimes some inspiration is needed. That’s why we’re turning to our Evanston team today – hailing from Illinois, they truly understand extreme seasons. With some stellar season-ready gear and some sartorial wisdom, they’re showing us three ways to elevate your spring look. Spring. It. On.
We love Arica’s entire ensemble here, from her eye-catching dress to her spring-to-summer sandals, but the true statement in this outfit is her white Kate Spade bag. It’s so stark white and bright that it pops, without adding another bold hue to her bold outfit.

Hanging with a well-dressed guy friend yesterday, he proclaimed, “Socks are the new ties.” We couldn’t agree more.
