spring wardrobe essentials

Shop

at the start of every season i try and take an inventory of my closet to figure out how i’m doing with ‘staples’. i love a good trend as much as the next girl but having staple items in your wardrobe is key for being able to mix and match and make your wardrobe go SO much further. for example, if you’re loving the ‘butter yellow’ trend right now and bought a really fun yellow top…having your holy grail denim shorts in your closet to pair them with is key!

so today i wanted to round up for you guys what my spring wardrobe staples are! all of these items for the most part are things that i’ve had in my closet for years that i come back to over and over again. or they are new sandals i maybe bought this year that i know will go with 100 different outfits this season!

i love having one go-to blouse in my wardrobe that works for sunday morning church, a work brunch event, or dressed up for date night and this eyelet blouse is perfect for all of those. it's classy yet fashion-forward and has such a flattering fit. i love how this looks with jeans or denim shorts or even white denim for a monochromatic look.

i bought this bag in brown this past fall and it was the perfect everyday bag but also totally easy to dress up for a night out. so i bought the ivory one for spring and LOVE. this is a designer-inspired bag but for a super reasonable price point and the quality is so good. the size is perfect for everyday but not TOO big to where you couldn't dress it up! you can wear it on your shoulder, carry by the handle, or wear it crossbody. such a great amazon find!

i have a few favorite pair of denim shorts but this pair of abercrombie is high on the list and a super reasonable price point. i borderline LIVE in denim shorts in the spring and summer so having a pair that you feel your best in is key! i love this pair because they are high waisted, they're not too short, and not too long. they don't look 'mom-ish' if that makes sense, but still super functional and practical for everyday mom life! finding a pair of denim shorts that's flattering but still comfortable is not easy and these check all the boxes for me.

i just bought these sandals about a month ago and as y'all have seen...i have already styled them with COUNTLESS spring / summer outfits! i LOVE this dark brown color because it goes with everything but also look great with any skin tone. they are comfortable, flattering on the foot, and look so cute with jeans, shorts, and dresses! having a great, versatile pair of sandals like this is a MUST for your spring wardrobe! i'm the type of girl that buys one or two new pair of sandals each spring and then wears the HECK out of them all season long!

if you've been following me for a while, you know i LOVE a good jeans and a tee type of outfit. anytime i do a 'closet cleanout' i have so many basic tees that i need to get rid of haha because I'm forever buying a new one trying to find THE one. this one from abercrombie has been my go-to for years now. it's somewhat fitted without being too tight. it's soft, doesn't show weird bra lines underneath. not cropped, not too long. really checks all the boxes. looks so cute on it's own but great for layering underneath a flannel or denim jacket!

i don't know about you guys but i wear jeans all year long. but in the spring and summer i like to wear jeans that look and feel a little bit lighter and these levis are PERFECT for this time of year! they are high waisted, have SUCH a flattering fit, while still being relaxed...and they're under $100! i bought these about a month ago and have worn them more than any other pair of jeans i own. they fit a little bit big so if you're in between sizes i suggest going down a size.

in addition to a good strappy sandal, i think having a good slide sandal is key for a spring wardrobe. call me lazy but i love being able to just slide my foot into a sandal without bending down to strap in haha. this pair is super comfortable and looks great with everything from denim shorts to dresses to jeans!

i have really become a belt girl in the past year or two! i think a good skinny belt can really polish off any outfit, whether you're wearing denim shorts and a button down, or a bodysuit with jeans. it really ties the whole look together and can really flatter your waistline. i love this skinny belt from madewell and have had mine for years (and still get SO much use out of it!). you might not think you're a belt girl but i promise, once you buy this one, you'll be shocked how much you wear it and how much it can really add to an outfit!

i'm actually wearing this denim jacket as we speak haha and honestly get so much use out of this year round. i love the oversized fit and the quality of the denim is so good, without breaking the bank. a great denim jacket is key for building out your spring wardrobe, as you'll find yourself pairing it with everything from jumpsuits to workout leggings to sun dresses, white jeans and more.

a classic striped button down shirt is something every girl should have in her wardrobe! this is the type of shirt you'll find yourself pairing with slacks for the office, denim shorts for backyard bbq's, or jeans and a wedge sandal for brunch! i love having pieces like this in my wardrobe that can be worn multiple ways that look so classic and feminine!

i've had my white golden goose sneakers for years and years and still get SO much use out of them. they are definitely a splurge but i find myself grabbing them to pair with nearly any denim outfit. they are so comfortable, go with everything, and i think add an element of 'cool' to any outfit. they are definitely a splurge but i've MORE than gotten my money's worth out of these!

one of my favorite bags of all time! i actually carried this last night when we went to dinner as a fam, and i needed to carry a diaper & wipes, restaurant toys for shiloh, all of my stuff...and it held all of that very comfortably, yet still looks elevated + chic at the same time. i also love this cinnamon color because it goes with everything and can be worn year round. don't get me wrong...i love small designer bags but when you need a great 'mom' bag for everyday and still want to look chic...this bag is IT. (and i believe it's 25% off right now)
