March Madness may conjure up visions of basketball hoops in the minds of most, but for me it's about crazy end-of-season sales, updating the old, making room for the new! Spring will be upon us and if you aren't already, you will soon tire of the sweaters, boots, and bulk. Before you know it, they will be replaced with painted toes, lighter fabrics, and simpler jewelry.
When updating your wardrobe, rule #1 is always keep your budget in mind. It doesn't matter what the budget is, just don't go over! You can always find something that will work that won't break the bank and it shouldn't. When you're looking for the pieces to refresh, look for things that have multiple uses that can be worn to work during the day and double as a evening look for a night out with the gals as well. For example, a sheer, flowing blouse that can be worn belted with slacks to work during the day but unbelted, add a blazer and pumps and gold chain for a tapas and happy hour!
And speaking of blazers, I would opt for a lighter shade for the spring/summer season. If you can pull it off, go for white or yellow. Either color will set off any look. I would also choose lighter-weight jewelry for the spring season. The accessories are still very important for completing the outfit, but with the lighter fabrics, you don't want to add the heavy look of chunkier pieces, at least not all the time.

A flirty, pleated skirt is another versatile piece that can be both casual and suitable for the office. It works well with the new blazer, tee, flats or pumps. There's so much you can do with this addition to your wardrobe.
But, the most fun of all has to be all the delicious wedges that are coming out this Spring! Great colors and playful designs. Just trying them on makes you feel good. Imagine putting them together with a few new signature pieces that you picked up under budget that work for both work and play! Next step, out with the old!
