This Free People We The Free Mala Strana Dress is the ultimate floral frock. It’s every bit girly and quintessentially spring. Yet paired with tights, combat boots, and a chunky sweater, it works perfectly well at the end of these winter months as well. It adds just the right amount of color into your winterized wardrobe.

This spring especially is witnessing a revival of 1990s-level floral. That means a whole lot of flowers, my friends. Adding a touch of floral into your outfit will act as a transitioning tool in itself. Any kind of floral will do: blazers, cropped jackets, skirts, blouses, belts, etc. So bust out your favorite floral ensemble and let’s transition into spring…

Sometimes for me, it’s difficult to transition into spring. I never know what to wear! Am I still allowed to wear black? Do I have to wear a pastel dress? What’s the rule on tall boots? Must I change my mood from brooding to cheery?

All I know is that I’m loving ankle jeans right now. I feel like they could be a great transitioning tool from winter to spring, don’t you agree? They show just an ever-so-small amount of leg. Basically you are telling the world that you don’t need wool socks & rain boots anymore. Actually I’m pretty sure it rains in the spring so scratch that theory. Just know that ankle jeans are perfect for breaking out of the winter doldrums.

So if you feel like it’s time to sun your ankles a little bit, here are my favorite ankle jeans:
