Light as a Feather…Spring Layers

How to style a down vest, spring active layers, athleisureWhich items of clothing do you reach for to stay warm and comfortable in-between seasons?  Here in Dallas, the weather has been very up and down lately, and spring seems to be is on it’s way!  Feather-weight active layers are my solution…

I featured this vest back in the fall, and since then it has become a wardrobe staple!  I wear heavier layers and accessories with it on cold days and a light layer under it on warmer days.  It’s a truly versatile piece and packs down tiny, so its great for travel, too!  I just checked to make sure its still in stock, and its available in all sizes and on sale (with free 3 day shipping and returns)!  You won’t regret getting this chic vest…the slight sheen and sleek fit make it super unique and flattering.  

I wear these technical long sleeve tops from lululemon year-round!  I own several (some I’ve had for over 5 years), and they’re worth every penny!  They’re very light, yet keep you warm and wick sweat.  Its my favorite for everyday workouts and summer hiking.  I tie it around my waist once I warm up, and forget it’s there because its almost weightless!  During the winter months I wear them under vests and jackets for extra warmth.  I have plenty of neutrals but had to spring for it in turquoise recently…the color is so pretty and vibrant.  Looks great with navy leggings, too!

These Fast and Free running tights are ah-mazing!  Yes, they’re made for running, but I also love them for gym workouts.  If you’re looking for light compression and a smooth, barely-there feel, these are for you!  They have a high rise, several pockets, and are incredibly comfortable.  If you’re looking for higher compression, I recommend these or these…
