Closet Staples for Spring

Is anyone else ready for spring? Is anyone else annoyed that all people ever do (me included) is talk about how they want the next season to arrive, basically as soon as the season we’re currently in starts? Is anyone else completely lost by my train of thought? Sorry.

ANYWAY, I’m 100% ready for spring. I don’t need it to be hot yet (or ever), but I would love to go outside without needing a warm coat or several layers. A girl can dream, can’t she? Stores have rolled out their spring collections, which makes me very happy, so I thought I’d put together what I consider to be things that every girl can wear this spring.

I’m a firm believer that a denim jacket is an all-around closet staple. In the spring, summer and autumn, it’s my first choice for outerwear – it’s just so dang versatile. One of my favorite ways to wear a denim jacket is paired with a white lace dress and pretty sandals. It’s a good balance of feminine and laidback.

I love mules! I bought this pair last fall and wore them all the time, so I’m so anxious for the weather to warm up so I can wear them again. They’re a great way to refine a casual outfit, like ripped jeans and a tee shirt.

The easiest way to add a little interest to an outfit is with an embellished or graphic tee. I love a top like this paired with ripped jeans and sneakers or black jeans and booties.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who generally avoids being outside in the winter, right? I’m usually out of my house and into my car, out of my car and into my destination, etc. When the temperatures warm up, though, I spend more time outside, which can mean carrying more things on my person. Whether it’s a cardigan, scarf, something I picked up at a store, or something else, having a large tote bag makes it super easy to carry everything I need.

This is a great option for when it’s warmed up but there’s still a chill in the air. They’re so cute paired with booties or mules, too.

Does it get more classic than a white button-up shirt? I picked one up during Black Friday sales and am so excited to be able to style it in the spring. I’m imaging it with shorts and booties or ripped jeans and mules. The collar and buttons automatically create a pulled together vibe, which I love!

Sort of on-par with the long-sleeve dress, I also love a sweatshirt dress for when it’s warming up. They’re cute paired with a denim jacket and sneakers. I love having things that I can just throw on and go, like a sweatshirt dress.

Just because it gets warmer outside doesn’t mean you have to put your booties into storage. A lighter color, like beige, tan, or light grey, and softer material (basically non-leather) allow for you to wear your booties even when it’s warm out and not feel like you’re dressing out of season.

This kind of jacket rivals a denim jacket as far as a closet staple. One of my favorite ways to wear it is paired with a really feminine top or dress, like white or blush lace.

What are you spring closet staples?

    I love the long sleeve dress so much! I've loved it since I saw you post it on your Instagram story. I keep putting it in my shopping bag on the website then deleting it. It's so cute though! I also love the tote bag.

  3. Hey Lauren,

    We love the idea of having staple pieces in every closet and our favorite pieces are the denim jacket and long sleeve dress! Each of these clothing items seem to fit spring perfectly, and really any other season! We love your sense of fashion and inspiration.
