Spring Transition Outfit

Hi friends! I’m glad you’re here. I don’t know about you, but I get up one day and it’s sunny and warm(ish), and then the very next day it’s back to gray (how do you spell that?) and cool(ish). I think our weather has a split personality. I’m ready for a little predictability. Today I’m sharing a great idea for a spring transition outfit. It’s pretty much a no fail formula.

This outfit screams spring, and it’s math anyone can do.
Top + jeans + sweater + cute accessories = perfection.
The best part about this formula is that you can mix, match and interchange pieces in your closet. I love having sweet little tops that can stand on their own or be paired with sweaters, ponchos, kimonos or denim jackets. When I’m looking at little tops like this. (Lets refer to them as shells, that’s what my mom has always called them) I’m thinking about a couple of things. Is it neutral will play well with others, or does it have enough colors in it to go with a lot of different things. This one has a lot of this summers popular colors.

This sweater has also been around a couple of seasons, but the lavender is new for spring. It’s baby soft and the color is gorgeous.

I bought these double frayed hem jeans last year at Loft and they brought them back this year. I mean what’s better than a frayed hem? A double frayed hem. HA! It is seriously a cute detail and they are available in a pale green chino, thicket green jeans, dark denim, andburgundy or teal denim.

I find myself wearing my snakeskin flats a lot. I’m reaching for them in places I would have previously worn my leopard…but not to worry, I’m still wearing those too. The snakeskin just have more of a spring feel with the lighter tones, but can still be used for pattern mixing.

And I’m still wearing and loving my new JORD watch. It’s the perfect compliment to my spring outfits.

If you’re looking for some cute little shells to wear alone or layered, here are some of my picks and a couple sweater options to go with them.

    Dang….I adore those colors Lisa!! It’s the best way to dress about spring!!
    And I’m such a lover of the frayed hems…esp especially because it makes it so easy for me to shorten my too long jeans!!

      Thanks Jodie! I never thought I’d love lavender the way I do now. Crazy! Yes to frayed hems!!! XO

    I just got my daughter the girl-version of that top! The adult version is really cute on you! I love how Old Navy has prints across size categories! Your lavender cardigan is so pretty with it!

      I saw a lady looking at the little girl version and putting it with the cutest little mustard cardigan. It was darling. XO

    I just recently purchased a few floral tops and I just love them! It is fun to bring out colors from the floral print with a fun colorful pair of shoes or a cardi. I just LOVE those snakeskin flats!!! Fun, fun, fun and a great mixing and matching of patterns!

      Thanks Carrie. I’m developing quite the collection of floral tops. Love them…and the snakeskin flats. I wear them all the time. XO

    Lavender is such a beautiful color. But I never wear it. It looks very good on you. Now it’s finally starting to get warm here in the Netherlands.

      I was exactly the same Nancy. This is the first season I’ve ever worn it. Hope y’all continue to warm up ,XO

    Can’t go wrong with lavender, such a pretty color. Also, love how you styled this comfy look with the floral top and snakeskin flats dear. That’s a pretty contrast combo!
