12 Spring Ready Outfits

May 11, 2020

I laughed out loud as I typed the title of this blog post “Spring Ready Outfits” as I’m laying under piles of blankets in Indiana looking outside at the 20 degree temps and hearing on the news how we have a frost warning for tonight. BUT. Somewhere within the next 10 days we’re supposed to see a turnaround, thank the Lord, so here I am, busting out my best pair of shorts and prepping for sunshine and warmth whenever that day may come. I almost forgot that white jeans were a thing until I started putting together some of these outfits and I was quickly reminded how much I love wearing them, mostly as a challenge to see if I can *actually* keep them clean for 8 hours. ANYHOW. Spring ready outfits, here we go!

Before we get into all of the outfits, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you – for sizing reference, I am 5’4, 135 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits [literally every outfit housed in ONE spot] and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin! ps. If you’re here, I’m assuming you like a) clothes b) good deals on clothes.

Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.
