I am a little fascinated with the concept of a “capsule” wardrobe. I think on a day to day basis, I totally subscribe to the capsule approach, mainly because I tend to favor certain pieces of clothing over others. Anyone else experience this? A closet full of clothes, and I always gravitate towards the same few pieces.
Recently, I teamed up with rue21 and picked five easy and versatile pieces that are perfect spring staples. Honestly, you could recycle and rewear these pieces in so many different ways!
Here are my five must-haves for spring:
A solid denim jacket
A comfy white tee
A t-shirt dress (or sundress, if you’re okay wearing them in every day life)
A lightweight cardigan
A well-fitted pair of jeans (I’m super into mom cut right now… but it’s a bit trendy)
Think of the possibilities:
- Good pair of jeans, a white tee and a pair of flip flops for errands
- A solid white tee, denim jacket and heels for a date night
- Your tee dress, denim jacket and heels for a girls night out
- A lightweight cardigan over a tee dress for festivals/outdoor concerts
- White tee and a denim skirt
- Tee dress, denim jacket, and flip flops for breezier days
There is nothing like denim and white in the spring. I still hold to that. I used to have a pair of sandals just like these – and little Millie came along and demolished them. Would you believe me if I told you that rue21 sells them for $6?! I was so excited!
You can shop my whole look below, and I’ve linked to other rue21 items to round out your spring staple shopping!
