It’s already May and the first blooms of spring are already come and gone! New life brings new energy (including restarting our blog!) and we were recently were talking about the things we do every spring to give that feeling of a fresh start. What better way to kickstart our blog than to do a 3-part series on how we refresh for spring our fashion, our health, and our minds! Hoping you’ll find this helpful for spring and also summer which is right around the corner!
our spring fashion refresh!
1. fresh layers
By spring I’m so ready to ditch the puffy coat and wear something (anything!) different. Since our spring can be pretty chilly, we’ve developed creative ways to dress springy but warm, and we even wrote a couple blogs about it here and here. Our favorite tip is to layer under cute spring jackets to give warmth, plus an instant fresh & cute look! At the beginning of spring, I’m wearing sweaters under a utility jacket like this one, but by the end of spring, lightweight tanks & tops are all the warmth I need under a jacket. The idea is to consider your jacket more than just a function of warmth, but an extension of your outfit. Simply trading your puffer for an assortment of 3-4 spring jackets will transform your entire spring wardrobe! Our essentials: utility jacket, denim jacket, quilted jacket, and trench coat.
2. fresh trends
Spring is the perfect time to try a fresh, new trend! When I saw the split hem trend, I knew I wanted to give it a try!! I got these ribbed split hem leggings from Mango. I kept the black light for spring by adding strappy kitten heel sandals and a new tunic length top. My top is also on trend with its mint green color and rouched lace up detail on the shoulders. I had fun styling this outfit, and I can’t wait to wear it out and about!!
3. fresh looks
We live in sweaters, jeans and boots all winter long, so we make a concerted effort to switch things up come spring! We might still need a sweater, but now we start reaching for softer colors in a lighter weight knit. Instead of reaching for jeans day after day, we intentionally rotate in other styles of pants, like these olive wide leg pants. Khaki pants or trousers in a fun bright color are also great options, as well as white or lightwash jeans. Anything to make a clean break from our winter uniform of dark neutrals!
4. fresh colors
Do you ever find yourself drawn to a certain color, and you can’t get enough of it?? This is me with this bold, blue color for spring! I love this racer back vibrant blue tank. It makes a stylish date night top paired with my new, favorite boot cut white jeans! My metallic sandals are the perfect neutral compliment to the look. Bring on date night!! Wearing a bright color with fresh white is the perfect way to signal spring is here!
5. fresh statement!
Now that we can start shedding some layers, an easy way to make a spring fashion statement is with a fun top! The statement top is having a moment right now, and we couldn’t be more excited about all the cool sleeves, cute ruffles, and unexpected designs that are everywhere! A pretty patterned blouse or a modern take on the classic denim shirt add a freshness and a feminine touch that’s just the right vibe for spring outfits!
We hope this has inspired you to take a look around your closet and find some fresh inspo for spring style!
