OOTD:: Transitioning into Spring in DC

I got too excited way too quick.  Man, these April showers don't mess around do they! 
Today's post is about these showers and how it affects the weather and makes it go from hot sunny days, to cooler days at other times. Also, DC weather is so iffy, just two weeks ago, it was snowing! I know, your jaw is dropping isn't it?! Well last weekend, my sister came up from sweet 'ol Georgia to come visit me for the weekend (isn't she the cutest and sweetest?! :D ) and so I had to take her to an obligatory visit to see our main man Abe and visit the White House. 
Spring comes by so quick.  One second its freezing, and a few days later it'll be the most perfect weather, then BAM! Hello heat wave.  I've learned that the trick is to layer up in this transitional period.  You never know when the rain would come and cool the weather down, or when the sun will be kissing your body more than you'll like. 
I chose to wear  a long sleeve dress, paired with a faux fur vest to keep me warm but not too warm.  It was actually the perfect outfit! It became a lot more windy than we anticipated, but only in the mid 50s range, so not enough to whip out the heavy jackets. I paired it with some cute loafers(yes, the ones I actually put in my Christmas Friday Favorites post a few months ago, my brother surprised me with them! Yall, I seriously have the sweeetest family!) but they were great because they were so comfy, looked perfect and perfect for all the walking we had to do.
Take a look for yourself on our day in DC!

Oh you know, had to get a quick kiss with Abe!

(Notice the windy hair! Which turned out super cute for the picture, haha)

Love her!

The best view!

HAD to represent and throw up my letters, Go Kappa Delta! Love Yall, AOT!

When it gets a bit warmer, just take off your vest!

 Spring fashion is all about layers since the weather is still catching up.  So keep that and this post in mind when your getting ready next!
Check back and Have a great rest of the week!
ps, don't forget to =)
