Building a Spring Wardrobe
I received this outfit as a gift back in March when I did a styling event for JCrew. Since then I have been wearing each item all the time in many different ways. In this blog post, I wanted to share how these pieces have been essential additions to my spring wardrobe. I have been getting a lot of wear out of each piece by mixing and matching and I want to share my tips on how to give new items a lot of wear with the wardrobe you have. If you are trying to add more spring wardrobe essentials to your closet JCrew is a great place to look. Their clothes are always quality made and I find that I always wear items that I buy from JCrew through many different seasons and for many years. Their items are always versatile and timeless. Plus Jcrew can be an affordable option if you watch for their storewide sales. Plus they have even more affordable options through the JCrew factory. And if your looking for a sustainable option there is always a lot of second-hand options to choose from on Poshmark.
Wide Leg Cropped Pants
As I have been building my wardrobe with essential pieces I knew I wanted to add another pair of wide-leg cropped pants. These striped pants from JCrew are a unique option that I can wear with just about anything. I didn’t have any striped pants and I loved how the verticle stripe looked on me. I also really love the fashionable front pockets. They really add a unique vintage character to an outfit. I love wearing these pants when I need a casual and comfortable outfit when I am running to the grocery store or working in the garden. But they are also really cute dressed up with a little espadrille wedge.
A White Top and Colorful Cardigan
I always love adding a unique white top to my wardrobe because I love the versatility and how it automatically makes an outfit look put together. This white top is a t-shirt style with the cutest tortoise buttons down the front. This little detail is trendy but also very vintage inspired. I loved adding a new top with this detail to my wardrobe. It is a great piece to wear with shorts of any color and skirts of any pattern. Then I really loved adding the bright purple cardigan to my wardrobe. It was a color that I didn’t have in my wardrobe. I love using it to add a pop of color to a neutral outfit especially a white dress or a denim jumpsuit. Plus it has been an essential piece with our chilly spring that we have been enduring this year.
Spring Accesor Essentials
Then we can’t forget the accessories. I didn’t purchase these from JCrew but they are must-haves for spring. And they really add convenience when I am throwing together a quick outfit. You may have seen me use this bag a lot already. I bought it from Connected Goods, they have the cutest basket bags and homeware. Plus they are all fair trade or locally made items. This bag goes with everything and it can carry a lot. I have used it as a farmers market basket and beach bag. But it is also my favorite everyday bag.
My pink espadrilles I bought last year from Soludos but you can also find similar ones from Castaner. I love wearing espadrille wedges during the spring and summer and I am looking to add more colors to my wardrobe because they are the perfect shoe to dress up any outfit. And then you can finish any look with a cute floral scarf in your hair, around your neck, or on your bag.
I hope you have found these tips helpful. Stay tuned for much more spring outfit inspiration coming your way this week. Thanks for reading!
