Spring has officially arrived, but living in the tri-state, we have haven’t had much of a winter. On Christmas the weather was in the 60s and we’ve only had one major snowstorm. I know, that should be a good thing right? This is not typical weather as a Jersey girl. This time last year I had been out of work at least one day a week for snow. The tides have truly turned over the course of the year. Let’s get into my staples for spring.Be sure to click all the highlighted links for related posts or to purchase items mentioned.
1. Denim | I thrifted a denim shirt last summer and I absolutely love it. I love the look of denim on denim. It wasn’t always a favorite of mine, but light wash denim paired together looks amazing. In addition to this shirt I love my denim jacket that I purchased from Forever 21 years ago. Denim just screams jeans and while I’m on the hunt for a ripped pair, my shirt and jacket will due. Purchase similar styles below:
2. Canvas Sneakers | I am no sneaker head although there are shoes I’d like to add to my collection. I am a sucker for canvas sneakers which you can find just about anywhere in a variety of colors and prints. I love to buy mine printed because they become an instant accessory to an outfit. While some stand out more than others I love a mixture of bold and muted prints. A muted print to me is a more classic floral. I have purchased mine from H&M & Charlotte Russe. I would recommend searching in store for more of a variety, but similar styles are listed below:
3. High-Top Converse | I absolutely love my converse and although I purchased the high-tops, I love rolling them down. With the weather getting warmer I have ditched my Timbs and I have been wearing these on a daily basis. I would love a white pair maybe even pink, maybe. Purchase HERE.
4. Graphic Tees | While this could be a year round staple, I love rocking my graphic tees in the spring. Fall is more for layering and winter is about being cozy. Summer time, I’m all about my tanks. Yet in the Spring, I find myself buying graphic tees and I love all types. I usually buy mine from either Spencers or Hot Topic, depending on the selection, when they have the buy 1 get 1 50% off. Don’t spend a lot of money on them, try thrifting. I have all types from comics to wrestling, music, and even the touristy ones. I don’t mind the cheesy graphic tee and I can’t wait to add more to my collection. Below are links to my favorite places to buy them:
I can’t wait to start taking pictures and sharing my outfits of the day or maybe even a lookbook featuring my spring essentials and more. Stay tuned!
