4 Ways to Make It Feel Like Springtime (In the Middle of Winter).

After the holidays are over, I’m basically over cold weather and ready for summertime fun to begin. That said, “winter” officially paid Florida a visit this weekend with high temperatures in the upper 50s & lows dropping all the way into the 30s. YIKES! This Florida grown girl can count the number of jackets she owns on one hand and to be honest, I’ve never mastered the whole “layering” thing. Even though I'm excited for cooler temps, I'm all about living like it's spring time year round. Here are a couple of my favorite ways to do just that!

Give my nails a pop of bright, fun color! I'm all about matching my nail color to a specific season, but when I need a little pick-me-up in the dead of winter, you'll catch me with hot pink toes and teal nails in the middle of January because #YOLO. This is an all-time favorite shade.

Light a spring or summery scented candle. Like most, I opt for lighter, sweeter scents in the springtime, and this guy has been burning on repeat in our humble abode. It's a crisp, summery smell and not too sweet. When it's 50 degrees outside, lighting a tropical or flowery scented candle transports me to warmer days (and inspires me to start planning my next tropical vacation...whoops).

Liven up my wardrobe with pastels. I have a tendency to wear a lot of black and neutrals colors, but sometimes I feel like a monochrome wardrobe can cramp my style...especially on gloomy winter days. We all know "florals for spring" is groundbreaking (Devil Wears Prada reference, of course!), but I love throwing pops of pastels and lighter colors into the mix when I'm trying to transition into a springtime wardrobe rotation. You can find a couple of my current wish list items here and here.

Throw on my favorite pair of sunnies
Fuse Lenses was kind enough to send me a complimentary pair of their replacement lenses, and I haven’t been able to take them off ever since! I mean, how gorgeous is that pink mirror? Paired with my gold rimmed Ray Ban aviator frames, it feels like it’s sunny and 75 literally every time I put them on.

Not to be confused with your typical sunglasses shop, Fuse is a replacement lens company for any brand of sunglasses based out of Clearwater, Florida. They offer 24 gorgeous colored lenses with polarized, non-polarized, mirror coated, and gradient options…68 lens options total! (I’m wearing their Fuse +Plus polarized Bella lenses in this post).

Rather than dropping a pretty penny any time you scratch your lenses or simply want to change up your look, Fuse offers affordable high-quality “aftermarket” replacement lens for your name-brand sunglasses. Not only are they beautifully made – Fuse lenses are scratch resistant AND 100% shatterproof. These babies have been tested at an actual shooting range, and they absorbed the shock of a .22 caliber bullet fired from 100 feet away. UNREAL. 

Check out this jaw-dropping video of a 2.4 oz ball drop on Fuse +Plus lenses versus name brand crazy! 

Fuse’s database of lenses is constantly expanding, but even if they don’t have your specific pair in stock, it’s no problem! Simply email customer service and for an extra $20, Fuse will send over a shipping label for your frames, trace your frame, custom cut your lenses, and send them straight back to you with your brand-new lenses already installed (Bonus: they also show just how easy it is to swap out lenses on your own in a quick video here).

Convinced you need a pair of Fuse Lenses as a staple in your upcoming Spring 2017 wardrobe? Fuse is giving away a pair of free polarized lenses to one lucky reader! Just hop on over to my Instagram account and follow the directions to enter. The winner will be chosen and notified on Monday, February 6th, 2017. Good luck!

And just because I’m curious…what color lenses would you choose?! I currently have Bella (obsessed!), but I’m also loving Sapphire and Blue Gradient!
