After a beautiful Sunday that hit nearly 60 degrees, my spring game is feeling strong. I’m sure we will have a few more cold spells this month that will delay my off-the-shoulder dreams (I’m ready to scoop up that blue striped Mossimo number any day now), so in the meantime I’ve rounded up a few other pieces that will work for the unsteady April days ahead.
Over the weekend, I scored the floral workout leggings (seen above) from Old Navy after seeing a girl in my kickboxing class wearing them. I loved the print, and when she said that they were only $16, I knew where my next stop later that day would be. While at Old Navy, I spotted the field jacket (also seen above) and will definitely be returning for that piece. It will be ideal for the chilly mornings—or impending rain this week.
What do peplums, a tie-front dress, chambray, an off-the-shoulder top, and stripes have in common? They should all be in your closet for spring. Don’t believe me? Just look at retailers like Old Navy, Banana Republic, and H&M this season. You’ll be seeing lots of these pieces. To be sure you’re stepping into spring in style, I’ve rounded up the best looks.
I can’t say enough good things about this chambray shirt from Mossimo at Target. What’s more, seeing the light and dark wash version side-by-side will have you buying two.
We all know that stripes are versatile, so I had to include not one but two pieces in the pattern. A simple striped top works alone or under a blazer for those chilly days (and we’ve been having a lot of them on the East Coast). With any luck warmer days should lie ahead, and this tie-front dress would be the perfect option for brunching or shopping. Of course, the pièce-de-résistance for me is a peplum. Something about that little detail on the bottom has me hooked. I could never own too many peplums (although my closet might disagree). And this darling black-and-white peplum has my name all over it!
