It's that time of the year again when the shorter days and cooler temps make us want to wear jeans and an oversized hoodie every day, but that would be even more depressing than remembering that summer is eight months away. To keep our turn-of-the-season fashion slump at bay, we're taking plenty of inspiration from Samantha Pleet's spring '12 lookbook, and want to wear super-femme dresses in soft, earthy colors no matter how cold the wind blows. We love that the collection includes a full range of hemlines (a huge plus for us girls who love options!) and plenty of separates to mix and match, meaning the pieces can be worn through any season with just a quick change of accessories. If you need a little help transitioning, Samantha Pleet was kind enough to give one lucky reader a Shadow Cloak to stay nice and toasty (not to mention totally in style) this fall. Click through the slideshow to check it out (along with her inspiring spring offerings), and c-c-check out the chic cloak we're giving away, and how to win it. Our choice response WINS!
