Outfit of the Day: Springtime Staples


Spring hasn't quite sprung, but this afternoon felt as close to it as it's been in awhile. Whipping out some of my favorite springtime pieces was such a treat, and I'm excited for more sunny days to come. In case you find yourself caught off guard by the warm weather like I was this afternoon, a solid spring outfit doesn't have to take a lot of effort to put together. Just opt for classic staple pieces like denim, black and white, and cotton fabrics.

I bought this $7.90 (!!!) pair of jeans from Forever 21 recently and had no idea I would love them this much. I needed them in a pinch and was planning to wear them just once or twice, but they've ended up lasting, retaining their blackness, and looking super flattering... So of course I bought three more pairs. The booties are also from Target.

My long cotton tank is from Target and I found my denim jacket at Plato's Closet last year. My scarf is also from Target, and I've worn it all winter. It's super warm and is the perfect finishing touch to so many outfits.

My simple black bag is also from Forever 21 and I just picked up these adorable cat eye sunglasses from Aldo. Thanks to @GreatLakerNori for frolicking around in Corktown with me today to take these quick snaps!
