Style: Coming up roses

Spring is back, and Baton Rouge is beginning to bloom again. City-shuttering freezes? Bye! (We won’t miss you.) Like a breath of fresh air, local boutiques are trading heavy coats for light, graceful separates in muted pastels and neutrals. And with details like ruffles, bows, billowy sleeves and shimmering textures, it’s all as sweet and romantic as a flower.
