Spring is here, and so is allergy season

The arrival of spring brings with it a sense of renewed hope and joy along with seasonal blooming flowers, budding leaves, and – yes – dreadful allergies!

For many of us, spring marks the beginning of allergy season. In fact, more than 50 million Americans experience various types of allergies each year, and allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S., according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

Joseph G. Dizon, MD, chief of service at the Department of Allergy and Immunology at Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center, says the biggest spring allergy trigger is pollen.

“As the weather gets warmer and drier, trees, grasses, and weeds release these tiny grains into the air to fertilize other plants,” Dr. Dizon explained. “When they enter the nose of someone who’s allergic, they send the body’s defenses haywire.”

When you have an allergic reaction, your immune system produces a "weapon" called an antibody, according to Dr. Dizon. These antibodies help to recognize allergens we are exposed to, and cause our immune cells to fight off the allergen, resulting in the typical symptoms associated with allergy episodes. Symptoms of seasonal allergies include:

  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Runny, stuffy, or itchy nose
  • Headache and fatigue
  • Sore throat or coughing

You can reduce your exposure to pollen by:

  • Keeping your house and car windows closed; using your air conditioning system can be helpful
  • Limiting the time you spend outside when pollen counts are high (during mid-day and afternoon)
  • Wearing a pollen mask or dust mask if you need to mow the lawn
  • Rinsing your eyes with cool water or saline eyedrops to remove clinging pollen after you come indoors
  • Taking a shower and changing your clothes after you work or play outside

According to Dr. Dizon, there’s no cure for seasonal allergies. However, there are several medications, including antihistamines and nasal steroids that can provide relief and help you breathe a little easier. Over-the-counter antihistamines that can be effective include loratadine (Claritin), fexofenadine (Allegra), or cetirizine (Zyrtec). The benefit of these medicines is that they cause less drowsiness compared to other common antihistamines such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl) or chlorpheniramine (Chlortrimeton).

“Because allergy symptoms – such as weepy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing – typically peak in the morning hours, taking your 24-hour allergy medication before going to bed often means that you’ll get the maximum effect when you need it the most,” Dr. Dizon said.

“If a person has a history of moderate or more severe allergy symptoms, it would be advantageous to start a steroid nasal spray and continue it through the season,” he continued. “These medicines are available over the counter without need for a prescription and include fluticasone (Flonase) or triamcinolone (Nasacort).

How to Wear Spring Looks in Cold Weather

In Seattle, Spring weather is variable at best. There are some sunny and mild days, but generally things don’t warm up till May or June. It can snow in March, and perpetual rain and grey skies are guaranteed. In fact, Spring is colder than Autumn. And since the wet cold is worse than the dry cold, it feels chilly around here for a long, long time. This can put a damper on your Spring style.

I’ve learned to dress more Spring-like in Winter weather, despite the cold and wet. Of course, feel free to continue wearing dark, insulating and heavy Winter clothes and footwear when it’s cold in Spring if that’s your preference. No need to change up your look for the sake of a changing season unless it lifts your mood and you want the refresh.

The trick is to stay warm and covered in lighter, shinier and brighter colours, and crisper fabrications. Here are my favourite ways of achieving a toasty Spring look:

1. Lighten Neutrals

Switch to wearing lighter neutrals across all sorts of wardrobe items. Think shades of tan, white, pearl grey, bright, olive and taupe across items like outerwear, jackets, bottoms, knitwear, footwear, handbags, scarves and belts. Switch to denim in lighter washes of blue. If these neutrals are too light for your taste, throw in shades of cognac.

Wear weatherproof footwear in light neutrals. Sperry and Sorel make amazing weatherproof boots in cream and white. I have a pair of cream duck boots from Sperry and they’ve been sublime to wear in snowy Salt Lake City and Park City.

2. Brighten Outerwear, Knitwear & Bottoms

Brights, jewel tones, mid-tones, dusty mid-tones and pastels across a range of wardrobe items are fab to wear in Spring because they break up the monotony of wearing dark neutrals all Winter. Most of these colours look great with dark and light neutrals.

Wearing bright cashmere knitwear, wool coats, trench coats and bright bottoms makes sense in Seattle because we can wear them for a while. For example, I’m wearing the heck out of my new COS watermelon cashmere pullover and Boden tomato red jeans because they are perfect for a cold Spring day with white boots and outerwear. I’m wearing my tomato red, shocking pink, citron and cream wool coats a lot too.

3. Wear More Pattern and Pattern Mix

There’s something about wearing floral, gingham and bold striped patterns that make me feel like Spring is in the air, especially when I style them with brights and light neutrals. I also like to pattern mix with classic patterns.

4. Wear White Jeans

If you don’t wear white jeans in Winter, wear them in Spring. They magically make most items that you wear with them look crisp and fresh. Wear them with solid or pattered dark neutrals, brights, pastels, mid-tones, jewel tones and earth tones. Unless you’re wearing a dark neutral up top, lighten the footwear with white jeans.

5. Throw in Metallic Footwear

Metallic boots are amazing to wear on a cold Spring day when it’s not snowing, frosting or raining cats & dogs. Think silver, pewter, gold or rose gold boots, sneakers, loafers, oxfords or pumps. Adding high shine to an outfit makes it look interesting and glam.

6. Add Spring Scarves

Chunky woolly scarves look very Winter-y, so swap them out for silkier and cotton-rich versions. Wearing them in pastels, brights and light neutrals is an even better idea. They do wonders keeping out the chill and look chic too.

7. Layer under Crisp Blouses

On a milder Spring day, I like to break out a pretty long-sleeved floral blouse because I don’t wear blouses in Winter. I layer underneath them with camisoles or a thermal tee, and wear a Spring scarf and coat for extra insulation. It feels good to wear crisp woven fabric instead of knitwear.

8. Wear Nude-for-You Hosiery

I wear nude hose under Spring dresses and flared skirts with light-coloured booties or loafers Sometimes I layer nude hose under nude fishnets. I also wear nude knee-highs under cropped pants and jeans with sneakers, loafers, pumps and booties to give the illusion that my ankles are bare, but are secretly warmly insulated.

9. Lighten Lipstick & Refresh Your ‘Do

Change up the colour of your lipstick to something lighter, softer and less earthy, just for fun. Refresh the colour or style of your hair if you’re bored with your ‘do. Or head over to a Laura Mercier counter and refresh your make-up for the warm-weather season.

10. Rock a Fun Raincoat & Umbrella

Don’t underestimate the stylish effect of a fabulous raincoat and umbrella. Retailers are doing a much better job of making rainwear look chic and fun, and less like unattractive gear. Rocking rainwear lifts your spirits and chases away the blues. Throw in a pair of cheerful wellies too.

Turns out that I follow most of these style strategies in Winter, and not just in Spring because I LOVE Spring fashion. Over to you. Do you have cold and dismal weather in the Spring? How do you transition your look into Spring without freezing your buns off?

Editor’s Favorites: Spring 2019

Editor-In-Chief, Marc Atiyolil shares some of his favorite trends for spring.


Nothing gives a space that custom, finished look like integrated details that hide seamlessly within the room. One thing that always bothers me is the unsightly cold air return covers that are standard in many homes. I love this Cold Air return cover from Made 2 Match. The cover is designed to fit a standard duct opening and muds right into your wall for a completely seamless finish that looks high-end without the high-end price! – Made 2 Match,


Throw pillows are the best way to freshen up your décor from season to season and year to year. This spring, I’m loving digital prints, oversized fl orals and soft pastels on pillows like these ones from Designers Guild. – Habitat Decor,


One trend I’m really enjoying this spring is the emergence of more soft gold finishes. Sometimes called winter gold or “white” gold, these softer metals have a matte finish that is somewhere between a brushed gold and brushed silver. The subtle color works with nearly any design style and offers a contemporary feel with a touch of warmth. – Litemode,


The complex diamond pattern contrasting with the smooth metal ends of this collection was the first thing that caught my attention. This combination is the perfect mix of texture and glam! The collection is available in a wide variety of finishes which can be mixed and matched to suit or even custom designed to perfectly match your kitchen! – Pomelli Designs,

It’s spring already? Physics explains why time flies as we age

Researchers have a new explanation for why those endless days of childhood seemed to last so much longer than they do now — physics. According to the theory, the apparent temporal discrepancy can be blamed on the ever-slowing speed at which images are obtained and processed by the human brain as the body ages.

10 Outdoor Spots in Need of Spring Cleaning

Spring has (almost) sprung, which means that warmer days, blooming flowers, and singing birds are just around the corner. It also means that the ravages left behind by winter are on full display, and that mud, leaves, and other debris have turned the exterior of your home into an unsightly mess. So, as you get started on spring cleaning, don’t forget to tend to the outside of your house too. Here are 10 outdoor spots that could use some special attention now that the worst of winter is behind us.

Spring Checks & Groovy Boots

A new outfit from Paulien Riemis of Polienne, whom we introduced to YLF in April 2014.

The groovy cowboy boots and playful checked blazer are the stars of this very trendy outfit. Paulien has tucked a lightweight cream pullover into cream high-rise jeans to create a column of colour that lengthens the leg line. Her on-trend straight leg jeans are cropped sufficiently to showcase an eye-catching pair of two-toned statement cowboy boots in their full glory. The neutral-toned blazer has an oversized fit with narrower cut shoulders, which streamlines the silhouette. Our blogger’s vintage Chanel bag echoes the camel in the checked print. She finishes off the outfit with oversized sunnies, and big hoop earrings, a gold necklace, bracelet and ring that match the bag’s gold chain strap.

15 dresses that prove florals for spring ARE groundbreaking

Because we need at least one or two (OK, 5) floral dresses in our lives…

floral dresses

Don’t let Miranda Priestly fool you, floral dresses are just as versatile as your LBD, especially when it comes to summer dressing. Nothing says wedding season quite like a floral frock, and luckily there’s a host of brands updating the classic print for the new season.

Floaty, midi, mini or super-structured – there’s plenty of ways to work the trend this season. See our SS19 summer fashion trends report, to see this season’s twist on the trend. Hint: it’s not all about ditzy florals.

Floral dresses for weddings

Print-wise, anything goes for wedding guest season. Those new to the trend and looking to avoid anything too girly should look to abstract prints, seen everywhere on the catwalk, it’s a sure fire way to liven up occasion dressing and a great way to break up any dull wardrobe shades. If you’re a fan of mixing prints, look to Rixo, GANNI and Richard Quinn for a riot of colour and print.

Romantic ruffles with a 70s vibe are having a moment and the trend is here to stay. From super long styles with splits to shorter shifts, frills are in. Just add heels and a clutch – et voila!

But don’t feel like you’ve wasted money by buying a dress you’ll only wear once. The beauty of most floral dresses is that they can easily be dressed down. Influencers like Fashion Guitar, Hannah Crosskey, Monikh and Lucy Williams, wear theirs with box-fresh trainers and ugly sandals.

Floral dresses with sleeves

The high-street’s love affair with shirt dresses means there is plethora of gorgeous long-sleeved floral dresses (see Kitri’s updated version of last season’s sell-out dress), and it’s a style that is perfect for the office too. Pick a flattering midi length, which you can easily wear with heels or smart sandals.

Floral maxi dresses

Maxi dresses are having a bit of a moment, and they’re the ideal length for a summer holiday on the coast. We love wraparound styles with a pleated skirt for that elegant touch, or a silk cami for a sexy spin.

Floral midi dresses

You’ll never go wrong with a flattering midi length, which suits most body shapes. From vintage floral prints to digital works of art, you’ll find a print to suit all tastes.

Spring Forward Signals Daylight Saving Time and … Jet Lag?

March 10, 2019, is the start of daylight saving time. Daylight saving time normally signals the incoming spring season and extra sunshine in the evenings for those late walks, but some people, like parents with young children, are dreading the hour of sleep we are all going to lose on Sunday — and the effects can be noticeable.

We are living in a time when numerous studies are showing that one-third of Americans are sleep deprived and weekend sleep can’t quite make up for our reduced sleep time during the work week! Basically, if you’re already somewhat sleep-deprived, giving up just 1 hour of shut-eye can negatively impact how you feel and function during the day; it’s as if you are experiencing a mild case of jet lag.

“This is due to your body’s internal clock, also known as circadian rhythm, being thrown off,” said Dennis Hwang, MD, at Kaiser Permanente Southern California Sleep Center in San Bernardino, California. “During daylight saving time, the internal sleep clock becomes misaligned. This complex timekeeper is controlled by areas of the brain that respond to light and can suppress the release of melatonin and affect your ability to sleep.”

While this shift is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, a disruption in your circadian rhythm does not only affect your ability to sleep but can also affect the function of many of your body’s systems. In addition to sleepiness, it can cause:

  • Problems with concentration and mental functioning
  • Neurologic symptoms
  • Stomach and intestinal symptoms
  • Elevations in blood pressure and heart rate (and can possibly even lead to irregular heartbeats)

Dr. Hwang offers tips to prepare for daylight saving time and to reset your internal clock:

  • A couple days before daylight saving time, start going to bed 15-20 minutes earlier than your normal bedtime (or at least go to bed earlier on the night of the time change).
  • Sleep an extra half hour on the morning of daylight saving time.
  • A dose of 0.25 to 1 mg of melatonin about 2 hours before bedtime can sometimes help you fall asleep.
  • Reduce your caffeine intake (and consume none after lunchtime).
  • Avoid alcohol and exercising before bedtime.
  • Put your phone (and tablets/computers) away at least an hour before bedtime!
  • When using your electronic device in the night, wearing blue-light blocking glasses or turning on the blue light filter on your phone or tablet can be good for your sleep.
  • Spend some time with your family and enjoy a relaxing evening at home.

Best places to travel for Spring Break that won’t break the bank


Few events in the yearly calendar are more exciting than Spring Break. For college students everywhere, it’s the time to leave classes behind and party until they can’t party anymore. It’s the last moment of freedom before they have to buckle down and complete their exams, so students rarely hold back when it comes to having fun. Unfortunately, the best Spring Break destinations aren’t always the cheapest. Undergrads aren’t exactly known for having much money, which means finding somewhere affordable to travel to is of the utmost importance.

Cabo San Lucas

Anyone living near, or looking to visit, the West Coast should find all they need at Cabo San Lucas. The gorgeous getaway offers many all-inclusive deals that will ensure you get everything you need without blowing your budget. With so much money saved on accommodation, you’ll be able to enjoy yourself more when you’re out and about. Luckily, the area is super lively, so you’re never short of things to do here, even when your wallet starts to look a little thin.
