Must Have Spring Basics

in , by Katie Margaret, May 12, 2016
When putting together an affordable wardrobe, it's always a good idea to stick with the basics and just build off of that.  I like to accessorize and mix and match my clothes to get the most use out of them.  In the spring, I have a few favorite pieces that I like to wear to add a little spring to my everyday looks.  

Today I want to share some of my spring essentials wardrobe pieces that I couldn't live without. 

  1. Blazers- I love to layer and blazers are perfect for layering in the spring.  They make the perfect lightweight jacket.  I love how putting on a blazer can ready dress up a simple outfit and make it look polished.  My favorite blazers that I have bought are from  the LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl's.  I like to buy them on sale with a coupon or look for acute one on clearance. 
  2. Colorful Statement Necklaces- If you follow my blog, you know I love colorful statement necklaces.  I think that they are the perfect way to make a simple look pop with a little color.  My favorite place to buy accessories like this is Charming Charlie.
  3. Denim Jackets- My denim jacket is my favorite right now and it's perfect for layering in the spring with almost any outfit.  I found mine a couple summers ago for a steal (read about it here), but denim is pretty popular, so it's easy to find a cute jean jacket.  Just keep your eyes open for great deals. 
  4. Maxi Skirts- Long skirts are great in the spring.  I like how comfortable they are.  I find the best prices on maxi skirts at Ross and T.J. Maxx.
  5. White Pants- White is the perfect way to add a little spring into your look.  This time of the year is always a great time to look for white pants.  I found my pair of white jeans at Target in the clearance section for under $10. (read about it here)
  6. Colorful Hand Bag- I tend to wear a lot of neutral colors, that's why I always like to carry a bright colored purse to add some color to my look.  I've been using the coral Coach purse that I got as a gift last Christmas.  Charming Charlie is a great place to find a colorful handbag for a decent price! 
  7. Wedge Sandal- I love a wedge sandal as an alternative to a heal.  I've been wearing my black strappy wedge sandals a lot this spring.  I bought them at Target last summer for under $10.
Here are a few spring outfits that I've put together using my favorite spring basics.
