My closet transition is complete as of this weekend. I love swapping out summer clothes for winter because it’s like shopping — but without spending any money! Because the temps are still a little warm here, I kept a few short-sleeved, black and white items on an easy-to-reach shelf. They match my ready-for-fall-neutrals mood. This checked top is a little trippy dippy in person (a mixture between mesmerizing and hurting your eyes), but it was on sale at Forever 21 back in SLC. Black, red and white = classic.

Easy and breezy

My wardrobe a few years ago consisted of jeans, shorts, more jeans and a few skirts and dresses here and there. I’ve slowly tried to accumulate more dresses and less jeans, and even though I work from home and don’t have a necessity for slightly more-formal wear, I still find myself reaching for those recently-acquired dresses and skirts. This particular dress was only $20 from Forever 21. Come the warm, summer heat, I’ll wear it sans a jacket, but for now while we’re still experiencing a cool spring, I want to get as much out of layering as possible.

Have a great long weekend, everyone! 

Classically spring

Sometimes the best outfits are those that need minimal accessories beyond a fantastic (vintage) bag, a bright pop of color and poppy lipstick. These pieces are what I reach for on those mornings when I feel I have absolutely nothing to wear. Nothing says springtime like nautical stripes and a trench.

What pieces in your closet do you reach for when you “having nothing to wear”?

Staple of the month: April

I had originally planned to wear pink with these pants for week two of my April staple of the month series, but after finding these brogues at Target for $10 over the weekend and seeing this shirt laying on top of my clothing bins, I just had to pair the pants with blues together. (See last week’s feature here.) Orange is quickly becoming one of my favorite colors (it works so well for spring, summer, fall and even winter), and this bag was long overdue in my wardrobe. It’ll work so well for hands-free carrying while exploring downtown and shopping at the farmers’ market in a few weeks.

Staple of the month: March

Last Friday, my roommate had the day off, so we went in search of a different coffee shop than the usual Starbucks. Working from home sure has its perks, including the ability to wear jeans when I don’t feel like putting on a dress/skirt with tights (which I want to boycott until the weather starts acting like March). So I juxtaposed my slightly slouchier boyfriend jeans with a decidedly feminine blazer in a tuxedo style. (See how I wore my March staple the first time here.)
