White Jeans with Grey Tee and Denim Jacket

White Jeans with Grey Tee and Denim Jacket

Usually, I’m sharing an outfit with a white top and I’m sure you all know that’s my go-to outfit by now. But when I want an easy way to mix things up, I swap out my light wash jeans for black or white denim. I recently pulled out these white Everlane high rise skinny jeans I got last year and they’re a great effortless style for the season. I sized up in them last year and they’re an ever-so-slightly slightly relaxed fit on me. If you want them skinnier, I would definitely stick to your normal size, as they do bag out slightly. FYI, I’m 5’6” and have the ankle length and am wearing a size 26. They’re also a great price at $68!

Comfy LifeStride Sandals for Spring

Comfy LifeStride Sandals for Spring

If you’ve followed along with my blog and Instagram for a while, you probably know I don’t wear heels very often. Though, let’s be real, of course I love the lift and length they give. What woman wouldn’t? But because heels are generally not functional for my lifestyle, my idea of the perfect heel is one that’s low, practical for both day to night, and—most importantly— comfortable! 

You could call me a bit of a low-heeled sandal connoisseur and I was so happy to find this Roxanne Heel by LifeStride from Zappos that checks every single thing on my must-have list: low heel (i.e. under 2 inches 🙌🏼), strappy style (love the double strap) and comfort above all else. LifeStride shoes are on-trend, easy to wear, perfect for 24/7 dressing and affordable. ✔️✔️✔️✔️

Basics on a Budget | Spring Edit

Basics on a Budget | Spring Edit

No matter the season, there’s nothing I love more than throwing on easy staples. While I’m a huge proponent of investing in quality over quantity, sometimes your wardrobe just needs staples that don’t break the bank. Staples you can live in, get dirty in, play with your kids (or dogs) in, workout in—without worrying about wearing them out and spending more to replace them each season.

I know it’s unrealistic to think everyone is able to justify spending $60+ on one shirt and while I know a lot of you appreciate my everyday, “basic” style, some of you do express you’d like to see more affordable options. Today, I’m partnering with Walmart to celebrate fashion for all—at prices everyone can feel good about. Their fresh new spring shop features bold stripes, modern romance and cool cottons but you guys know I’m all about those classic wardrobe staples: my effortless neutrals.

Spring Capsule Wardrobe Staples

Quality over quantity has been my motto lately and with spring (kind of) officially in the air, I’m taking this approach with me into the new season by focusing on building a spring capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is essentially made up of style staples you can easily pull together and mix and match with ease.

On a personal level, I know I feel anxious seeing my closet full of seasonal trends that may not have stood the test of time or didn’t last across multiple seasons. So my goal for a spring capsule is this: investing in basics I feel confident in. Less trends, more easy-breezy style staples. Creating a closet you can pull from to easily create looks you feel confident in. Isn’t that what shopping should always be about? Finding pieces that “spark joy”?

For me, I know I always feel my best in casual-chic basics with a flattering fit and feel. I also adore finding pieces with some sort of twist and tend to gravitate towards feminine styles more heavily in the warmer months. You’ll find me in wrap silhouettes, touches of floral here, lace and ruffles to name a few.

I want to start sharing more of what I have my eye on and a few things I’m currently loving for spring include: light wash denim especially in ankle lengths which looks really great with spring slides, fitted knits in neutrals and stripes, breezy white tops and neutral shoes in styles like loafers and slides. I really love having these classic basics you can literally throw on to feel put together in an instant. The beauty of a capsule wardrobe is that everything works together!

If you’ve been following along on my blog for a while, you know I’m always a huge proponent of taking advantage of major sales to make some of my best investment purchases. I can’t tell you how many of my favorite wardrobe staples were bought during the Shopbop Big Event. And how many of them are items in my closet I still wear, still reach for over and over, year after year. I absolutely adore Shopbop because they truly have high quality brands that offer really timeless staples. Are a lot of their items extremely high priced? Yes. Would I spend $200 on a t-shirt. Never. But what I will do and have done year after year is utilize this Buy More, Save More sale. sale to stock my closet with essentials. From some of my trusted, go-to brands like Levi’s and Madewell to my See By Chloe bags, Vince flats and more, this is THE sale I’ve snagged so many of them in.

Since I still am truly trying to shop less, I’m focusing on wardrobe essentials (with somewhat of a spring-forward twist). I would highly recommend you think of what’s lacking in your own closet and concentrate on those particular items but I personally love adding an everyday, versatile flat or loafer to replace the countless Target or lower-quality brands I have. And I can never say no to stockpiling denim. If you’ve been eyeing a designer bag, this is a great opportunity to snag one. I also shared a post featuring a ton of great spring and vacation buys! You can find it HERE.

Without further ado, here are my capsule wardrobe essentials from the Shopbop Big Event
