I don’t know why but my brain equates stripes with spring. Are you the same? Does your brain categorize specific styles to seasons as well? Well for me, a fresh set of stripes is perfect for spring. I have calmed down my stripes collection from over the years to contain just the classic navy / white stripes but I do love a quirky stripe top. This mustard brown striped top fits the bill perfectly. Wouldn’t this be darling with a floral skirt as well? It’s on my list. And if you’ve been here for a few years, then you know I have a full blow obsession with stripes and florals. It’s my calling card.
This tee is from Madewell! It’s a lovely spring weight because it’s more sturdy — probably not the word they’d use to describe I but it’s accurate — and it’s a relaxed fit. I am in the medium and I like this fit / size but it does run generously. If you want a closer fit, you could easily size down! Find this top here.
This pair of denim also screams spring to me. Lightweight and distressed, casual and comfy — everything I want in a pair of jeans. They are very stretchy and run a bit big, so you could size down one as well! I am in the 28 here. You can find them here.
Have you noticed lately that I’ve been living in flats and sneakers? I don’t know when I’ll make my return to heels. I’m sure I will one day but for now I’m happy with flats. They’re so easy to slip on and I’m loving all the options this spring. I felt like last spring, shoe styles and spring trends were interrupted and also we were all seriously considering Crocs. This year it feels like a breath of fresh air with the influx of flat styles. I love this pair from Madewell — comfortable, easy to wear and they don’t slip off as you walk. You can find them here!
