I put a sneak-peek of this look on my Instastories last night and I am so excited to share it with you guys today! With spring in full swing and summer not too far off, I’ve been adding pieces to my wardrobe that I can wear now and when the temps hit the triple-digits. I know what qualifies as spring and summer weather varies depending on where you live, but now that it’s almost June the temperatures are warming up and so many of us are gearing up for road trips, beach days, and BBQ’s. You guys know I love pieces that are wardrobe multi-taskers, so today I wanted to share my top three spring to summer wardrobe essentials that will take your outfits from warm and rainy spring days to balmy summer nights!
Nothing beats a pair of lightweight shorts when it comes being a wardrobe warrior. They can be worn with a cozy knit sweater and booties in the spring, and a crop top or a tank in the summer. I love this gingham pair from River Island! They are super comfortable and breezy, and would be perfect to throw on over a bathing suit too!
#2: A CROP TOP
I’ve been integrating more and more crop tops into my wardrobe and I love how versatile they are! They can be worn with a pair of high waisted denim and heels in the spring for a night out look, or paired with a pair of high waisted shorts or a skirt in the summer. I love how feminine this one is with the Swiss dot fabric and the ruffled cold shoulders.
This piece is something that many people (including myself until recently) tend to overlook because it doesn’t feel like a wardrobe “essential”, but once I got my first lightweight kimono I understood the hype. In the spring you can layer them over a long sleeve tee and jeans to make a basic outfit feel a little more special. In the summer, a lightweight robe is great for layering over a tank and shorts for an added lightweight layer, throwing on over a swimsuit, and can be great for protecting yourself from the sun! I love this one because even though the sleeves are long, the slit openings down the arms allow for ventilation. I love how the floral print looks next to the gingham – print mixing makes my heart happy!
To finish this look off I wore these super cute ballet flats. I am in love with the rhinestone strap and the blush pink color, but they also come in a pretty gingham print. River Island has such an amazing selection of cute shoes. I’m all about the flats lately (#momlife), and I love this pair of embellished espadrilles too!
