This frothy little number is just the thing to throw on as the seasons change from cold to warm (or back the other way), a festively bright layer of warmth for that awkward period when the calendar says spring but the temps still behave like winter. I’m always ready to abandon my thick woolies and break out my cotton dresses as soon as the clock strikes spring, then end up freezing my tail off by sunset, so layering a long sleeved T-shirt underneath and a light, lacy cardi like this one on top can help ease the transition. You’ll feel like a tropical bird preening her vibrant plumage as the days increase in length!
