spring staple

Finding a sample for spring that transitions into summer is hard to find. I’ve been searching far and wide for a go-to outfit but couldn’t find anything until this week. This casual but chic ensemble was exactly what I was looking to find. The heels and leather jacket dress up the look, but the rolled up chinos and gray tee make it a little more casual for the months ahead. It must have been fate that I came across this because I just bought a pair of chinos from JCrew this weekend with a girlfriend – I left hoping to find inspiration for styling the pants, and voila, look what I came across.

I’m hoping these oxfords have a home in my closet soon! Have you found your staple look for this season?

    Right up my alley! Casual style 🙂 I recently bought a pair of army greenish khakis from J.Crew and styled them rolled up with a blue gingham button up tucked in..collar just a bit popped for some attitude 😉 I wore indigo by clarks lace up that look like j.crew's mcalister boot but with a heel! Next time I think I'll pair my american apparel grey tri-cotton v!!!

    This outfit is just too good! My go-to outfit this Spring (as it's much hotter here) has been shorts and a flowy top tucked in with either flats or wedges!

    Lovely pick, Caitlin! My look definitely involves cropped pants – I can't get enough of them.
