Spring into Style

I’ve been working on a major closet overhaul — you know, the kind where you REALLY go through everything. So far, I’ve got two huge garbage bags full of old clothes to take to the D.I (Utah’s local version of Goodwill) — I’m talking JNCO flares, rainbow studded belts and shirts that barely cover the ladies (did I seriously ever wear this stuff?)  It’s been a fun trip down memory lane, but I’m eager to pare things down in many aspects of my life — the closet is just step one.

It’s felt really good. But, my closet also feels really bare (in a good way).  My new goal: buy just a few unique additions each season to build around the staples. Here’s what I’m swooning over today:

I’m loving the rose-printed jeans, although I feel like they’ll end up in a similar D.I. pile in a few years.  The moss green tee acts as the perfect classic balance.  Also, I think this is the year of the romper for me — I’ve always been hesistant, but why?!? With the right structure, it’s just like a dress with shorts! What could be better than that?  This number has both — pintucking and voluminous shorts in navy blue.

What are your favorite spring fashion trends?
