My inspiration behind this casual Spring look started with these distressed cropped jeans from Reitmans. Being a West Coast gal, I live in my jeans, but it doesn’t mean they can’t look chic. Good fitting jeans are a wardrobe essential and Reitmans has a huge selection of styles. Jeans are functional, versatile and can be styled many different ways. I coordinated them with this delicate long-sleeved eyelet blouse from H&M, to add a little femininity. We’re going to be seeing a lot of eyelet-lace this season so be sure to add something like this to your wardrobe! I layered on this blush-pink bomber jacket from Suzy Sheer, which is light-weight and perfect for the crisp Spring air. To elevate the look, I opted for these cute forest-green brick-heel sandal from Aldo. They are so comfy; perfect for shopping around the mall in (and show off my fresh pedicure!). This would be a great outfit for date night or dinner with friends.
Swap out the sandals for a pair of white Converse Chuck Taylor or Adidas Superstar sneakers (both available at Footlocker) to create an easy weekend ensemble. This is a super functional and stylish outfit for running errands or an outing with the kids.
For a flirty and more feminine look, I styled this playful pleated skirt with this pretty floral print blouse (both from H&M). The micro-pleat is also a big trend right now and this skirt is a great cut for a pear-shaped body type, as it floats away from the hips and softens the curves. For an cool “street” vibe, I styled this look with my black leather boots. However, for versatility and/or a more formal occasion, you can slip on a strappy sandle (like the ones pictured above) to dress up the outfit.
The idea behind both looks is that all pieces can be interchanged and coordinated to maximize your wardrobe. When shopping, be sure you can style each piece that you purchase at least 3 different ways, for: Weekend, Work and Night.
