Your Spring Style: Spring Essentials

Every Tuesday in April, Anne and I are hosting a spring style link up. We would love for you to follow along and link up a spring look! 

This week's Your Spring Style theme is Spring Essentials, which was a bit of a struggle to narrow down, to be honest. My devotion to spring tends to make me think ALL THE THINGS are essentials. However, I came up with a list of five things that I can't live without in the spring.

One thing I love about these 5 essentials is that they all work really well together. This look, showcasing 3 out of the 5, is a combination that I've had on repeat for years. It's easy to swap out the bright sandals for a neutral pair, and add color with a pretty top. Or, instead of the jeans, I could wear the jean jacket with a print dress. So many combinations, it almost means I won't need to do any more shopping this spring. Almost.

  1. Haha! I think ALL the things are essential in spring too. I agree with you one hundred percent on the denim jacket! And white jeans are still on my wishlist!

  2. Did you copy my list, by any chance? LOL No, but seriously I am all on board with all of these and Anne's essentials. They are literally mine as well. Check out the 2 posts I am linking up today for more.

  7. Maybe it's that we're so excited for winter to be over? I don't know :) White jeans can be hard to find--I found these last year I think, but this year I put them on and felt like the fit could be a little better...always a struggle especially with white pants!

  11. Thanks!! This one is so old but I still love it so much. I wish my favorite jeans would last as long as this jacket has!

  12. Thanks Megan! For some reason I was really excited to pull out the white jeans this year.

  13. Love that you included a denim jacket! Possibly my favorite layer to throw on with pretty much anything other than jeans. :)

  15. All of these pieces scream classic spring fashion to me too! Love the yellow shoes - such a fun pop of color!!

  16. Thank you!! After a winter filled with so many neutrals, I needed some bright yellow in my life! :)

  17. Stripes, white denim, denim jacket, and a bright pair of sandals most certainly nails the essential spring look.

  18. Ha, I had the same issue with my list - even with 10 items I ran out of room for the essential denim jacket and neutral sandals. But I agree - your 5 play together so nicely, for dressing up or dressing down. And we're clearly style buddies on the neutrals here. It seems so simple, but I love how springy white jeans + stripes + denim can be, especially with your great pop of yellow.

  19. Thanks Lydia! I think I'll be wearing some version of this quite a bit this spring!

  20. Thanks Anne! There were so many things I wanted to include--I really do love everything for spring. I loved your 10 items and I think I pretty much have all of those in my spring wardrobe too!

  21. That is a super-cute look with the stripes, jean jacket, and bright sandals! Love the way you made your list a general one -- since it's more about categories/function than specific items I can get a nice sense of how I could adapt those ideas to my own closet.

  22. Thank you!! When I was thinking of my list I thought about the pieces I wear again and again in the spring, not just this year but past years as well. So it makes me glad to hear that!! :)

  23. I love those yellow shoes. So cheery! I have such a humdrum collection of shoes.... and yay for denim jackets! I think they made it on everyone's essentials list ;)

  24. Thanks Katie! I bought these last summer and had to talk myself out of a neutral pair and into these, but I'm so glad I did--they are nice and cheery! And I agree about a denim jacket--I couldn't live without it!

  25. Such a great look, Shea! I especially like the yellow sandals and gray striped tee together :)
