Casual Wardrobe Essentials for Spring

Saturday, April 4, 2015
We've finally had a taste of spring here in the northeast. I've been able to shed the thick, heavy layers that have been weighing me down all winter. It's still not warm enough to go without some sort of light jacket or sweater, and closed-toe shoes are still a must. Here are a few of the things that I've been wearing on a daily basis now that the weather is warming up.

White Jeans - I've been wearing my white jeans all winter, but now they seem right. To keep them seasonally appropriate, pair them with a light sweater or layer a jacket over a tee.

Peasant Top - Festival chic is the new black. So, if you are going to add one thing to your wardrobe this spring, make it a peasant-style top. There are so many of them available right now and they look great paired with any style denim.

D'Orsay Flats - I bought my first pair last spring and wore them to death. This spring I've gotten two more pairs.  I love wearing them with casual dresses, shorts, and jeans. They are also great at giving your legs the illusion of being longer.

Sunnies - I never leave home with my sunglasses. And now that there are more sunny days on the horizon, a pair of chic but inexpensive sunglasses are a must.

Nail Polish - Spring is the perfect time to spruce up those nails. Go for a professional manicure and ask for a fun spring color. Two of my faves this season are any shade of orange and a light neutral.

Canvas Tote - Make your trips to outdoor markets, farm stands, farmers' and flea markets a fashionable one with a sturdy and stylish tote.

Sneakers - Unless I am working out, you are not likely to see me in sneakers very often. That was until I found the Converse Shoreline. Love, love, love this versatile sneaker. I love wearing mine with ankle length, dark skinnies, but they pair perfectly with a casual striped dress as well.

Military-Style Jacket - These light jackets are all the rage right now. They combine the masculinity of military style but offer a feminine cut and shape.
