Hot. Cold. Windy. Snow flurries. Hail? Sleet? It’s April – what is going on? It’s like seasonal Double Dutch this spring. No matter what you put on, it’s too much or too little for the elements. So we decided to put together some color-coded ideas, like chic layers, thigh high socks to replace winter tights, and the right boots for the April rain to help you let go of winter and embrace…whatever this weather is we’re having.
