3-2-20 THIS WEEK: Big Spring Preview-Part Two

March 2, 2020, 4:21 pm by MSP


It's week two of MSP's "Big Spring Preview"... The fun and fashion trends continue! 

This week, you get parts one and two (the complete list) of what-to-have this spring, and how to wear it.

Get ready for spring-now. This crazy up and down weather is so typical for early March. These fluctuations in temperature prompts us to prepare our closet for the change of season. 

Editing my closet is on the top of my list this week. I'm rotating heavy winter jackets to the back of my closet, and moving lighter-weight blazers and "spring-like" sweaters towards the front. Even if I still have to wear several layers at one time, wearing lighter (and brighter) clothing is the best option for this in-between time. Is your closet ready for spring?


This week: Everything you need to help you plan your spring wardrobe! 


Know what to keep and what to purge. FYI: as MSP SYSter, your Personal Profile  gives you access to the last 4 weeks of articles, and more. Use them to help you prepare your closet for spring.


As we wait for the arrival of spring...

Start wearing the lighter, brighter colors of the season right now!

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

Add some spice to your life and your wardrobe. This week's Style Mission is to shop off the beaten path. Just one unique accessory can really make your style come together in a very special way! All eyes will be on you--and your fabulous style when you highlight a really unique and cool accessory!

Try shopping where you don’t normally shop. Consider stores like Pier One Imports, World Market, a local flea market, an African import store; a craft fair—or even at Target!

The idea is to search out an ethnic or vintage looking accessory to add some unique spice to your wardrobe.  You can take an understated outfit (like white button-down shirt and black pants or your classic LBD) and add a unique look by wearing a one-of-a-kind necklace, earrings, or bracelet!


This unique pair of earrings will give any classic outfit a cool vibe...

What SYSters are Saying


"Dress for the beautiful woman you are today!"


Dear MissusSmartyPants,

Just thought I'd post a thought or two on the “I'm not the size I wanna be” mindset.  I've been working for over a year on my weight. I've gone from a 38 inch waist to a 34. So far I've lost over 45 lbs in the last year. It has been a moment by moment journey.  One mouthful at a time..of course the fact that I've painfully discovered that if I eat certain things I'm in tremendous pain has been an incredible motivator.  So I've learned to make healthier choices.

 Recently joined Missus Smarty Pants, like FlyLady has said so many times "you're not behind just get started right where you are." I've been amazed at the change in having a bit of direction has done for how I see myself physically.  

Last night my daughter and I went to Cato. I've avoided "shopping" unless I absolutely had to.  I found two pairs of the cutest leather shoes for $2.99 each. I've been looking to add wardrobe pieces that would compliment my bodystyle. Having a specific type of clothing in mind and already knowing my color palette has changed the way I shop now.

Dressing now is so much faster and less stressful. A year ago I didn't even feel like I had a style, let alone find something to compliment it. So for anyone debating whether or not its worth it to sign up for Missus Smarty Pants… my answer is yes... I'm worth it and so are you.


Thank you so much, Joy


Dear MSP
I just wanted to send a heartfelt "Thank you" for all you do. I had a personal profile once in the past, but I just didn't feel it did anything for me so I let my sub slide. Then in January I decided to try it again and this time something “clicked” with me.
I am one of those people who keeps waiting to lose weight to invest in a wardrobe when I realized the waiting to lose weight had become my life. So I decided to at least dress the best I could while I was "weighting". Now I truly know what I should and shouldn't wear, no matter how much I like something. It made it easier to donate gorgeous outfits that I can no longer wear because I know that they aren't for me anyway. It also makes it easier to shop (understatement). I live an hour from any store and I am not much of a shopper so I do a lot of online shopping and your advice has made my returns few and far between.  
Unlike other praise reports you get, I don't get many compliments on my new look, but then I am a size 26 and compliments are rare, except from my husband. God bless him! But I feel good about myself when I go out and even when I am doing the laundry. However, now I have a new problem! My wardrobe has grown so that I am not sure what to wear because I have so many nice things!
Again, Thank You
