The warmer temperatures that teased us a couple weeks ago will be back soon. Not this week (can you say hello 34 degrees and goodbye garden?), but next week some days climb into the low 70’s and it has me thinking all things spring. I’m so excited for warmer temperatures because dressing two kids is so much easier when throwing a dress and sandals on is all it takes. And in hopes on continuing the
I’m hoping to share a few things I have lined up in my closet with you and get your feedback.
Yes, unfortunately that means a ton of pictures taken with my self-timer. But bear with me, as I value your input as I try and up my style game just a smidge.
When I first cleaned out my closet this season, I realized I really didn’t have much of anything for warmer weather. So first things first, I scheduled a Stitch Fix delivery. I really love to do one at least once a season, if not more, just to help give me ideas. It’s incredible how many things they’ve sent me that I would have never tried on myself, but end up loving.
Also, some how they are the only ones that can find maxi dresses that beautifully suit my 5’1″ stature!
I love this maxi dress Stitch Fix sent me! I got a snap(chat) back from a reader (Hi Melissa!) that said she received the same one and loves it too! If flowy, comfortable dresses that work with flats are your thing, you can actually pin the picture to you stitch fix style board or send it to you stylist to request the same one. Super cool.
Other maxi dresses I’m eyeing are this solid one for everyday wear (I want it in every color!) and this one because it is just so feminine and I think I’d feel like a princess. Yes, secretly I’m 4 years old too. But beautiful long dresses just feel so good on, including this hand-me-down version from one of my fashionista best friends.
I’m not sure where she got it from, but this Lily Pulitzer one looks similar.
I’m also really loving jean jackets as an easy toss-over-anything for spring. Old Navy has some great affordable option right now, like this washed denim, similar to the one I’m wearing and this white one, which is currently sitting in my cart.
I’m not overly into the gladiator style sandal on me, so I do like having a metallic flat sandal option like this one, or if I wanted to splurge, I’d get these. A handful of my friends have these in different colors and swear they go with everything, but I have yet to bite the bullet.
Speaking of sandals, while I like my Target version, I am so excited that THESE simple sandals are supposed to show up on my doorstep today. I have a feeling I will be wearing them everyday. They are currently on sale too!
I only ended up keeping the maxi dress from this fix, as I sent these three back as well.
None of them did anything for me, but I sure do think my favorite wedges (similar) go with everything, don’t I?!
Let’s see, what else…
Simple sundresses- with pockets!
This floral sundress was another hand-me-down from my friend and it is everything I love about spring a summer. Breezy, comfortable and did I mention the pockets? So much fun.
If I’m being completely honest though, what you will usually find me in once the weather warms up is shorts.
I got the red Loft shorts above from ThredUp, an online consignment shop that has great prices for buying clothes (especially for kids!). I’ve heard mixed reviews on trying to sell through them though, just FYI.
However, my favorite shorts forever and ever will always be THESE (currently on sale!). I have them in 4 different colors and they are comfortable and flattering.
My only problem, if you can’t tell above, is that I have no clue what shirts to wear with shorts for casual, day to day wear. I’m stuck with the white tee and while it’s not terrible, I’d love a different option.
So there are my basics for spring and summer. Nothing you are going to find on any runway (ever– I tried to look up current trends and found myself giving the computer screen the stink-eye in confusion– people actually wear that stuff?!), it’s what I am feeling good in while running around trying to keep up with my kiddos.
Now please weigh in–
