With the change of weather for a bit warmer temps, I find myself wanting to bring some spring and cheer in with my outfits, but not go full-on summer florals just yet. How I do that, is by carefully mixing in layers, because goodness knows the weather fluctuates like crazy until it’s scorching hot in the summer!
My favorite spring layering pieces include: cropped jeans with a raw hem (on CRAZY sale right now…50% off!) that hint at warmer weather ahead. This striped mens-wear inspired shirt (sold out, but 1 left here and a similar one here). I’ve always been a huge fan of blue & white anything, and that of course extends through my closet with my #1 wardrobe staple. And while blue and white stripes can often scream summer, they’re balanced out here by an army green cargo jacket (mine is old, but here’s another one I want from J.Crew). I really just love transitioning into spring with a button down, because if it gets a little too warm, I simply unbutton another button and roll up my sleeves…making it feel very easy and carefree.
To accessorize, I grabbed a blue and white floral purse that brings just the right amount of femininity to, what would otherwise be, considered a tomboy outfit, with hints at spring. And these Chanel flats (similar pre-owned here, and more flats linked below…I especially love these by Vince). The flats are a splurge, but they’re the most comfortable shoes I own. Nothing is worse than buying a new pair of flats, only to have them tear up your feet and give you blisters for days. Because of this, I fully advocate investing in quality shoes like these that you’ll have for years. And I personally splurge on accessories more than clothes; you’re always the same size in accessories!
Tell me friends, what pieces are you most looking forward to pulling out this spring? Truly, MKR
