10 basics:

  1. a stripped top
  2. a few pairs of jeans: white, blue and gray
  3. a lightweight sweater
  4. a pastel piece
  5. a leather jacket
  6. a neutral bag
  7. a classic white Tee
  8. a pair of sandals
  9.  a colorful pair of heels
  10. and of course white sneakers

These are the 10 staples in my Spring and Summer wardrobe. Some of them are 2 in 1 like my colorful sandals of my lovely pastel sweater. All these pieces go together and can make for cute outfits. I saw a quote a few weeks ago from Rachel Zoe:
“It’s better to have fewer things of quality than too much expendable junk.”
Since I was the queen of expendable junk for a long time, I decided that this Spring I was going to do a Big Spring clean! So I did and I feel much better. I’m no were near a minimalist, but at least I through out a lot of junk. I kept my quality pieces and added a few things I needed like a new pair of jeans and a white Tee. Now I feel great and can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can start wearing everything.

These pieces are real basics for me. If I don’t know what to wear I’ll just wear a stripped top with my navy leather jacket or if it’s a bit colder my pastel sweater. Just add a pair of jeans and white sneakers and your outfit is done. I think a nude bag is great because it literally goes with any outfit. Overall I would recommend everyone to have these pieces in there wardrobe for Spring and Summer. Keep an eye out during Fall for my Fall and Winter basics.

Hello sunshine! Let’s bring out that bright spring wardrobe.
This bright blue blazer I’ve had for about three or four years now and I didn’t wear it for the first few, but now I’m obsessed with it! I love the slightly ‘over sizedness’ and of course the color. It’s also quiet thick so it’s good for this weather. Even though it’s spring in our heads, it can actually still be quite cold.
As for the tshirt… Yes you’re seeing it correctly… Those are GOLD PINEAPPLES!
I have the same tshirt with silver ones and I’m in love with them. They are so cute!

Today was a beautiful day. The weather was great so my mom and I decided it was a perfect day to visit a local castle close. We walked through the castle gardens which were gorgeous. Spring has definitely sprung and lots of beautiful flowers were already blooming.
I wanted to be comfortable because we were going to be walking, but I also wanted to feel elegant since I was visiting a beautiful castle with gardens full of flowers. So I wore this sweater dress with casual white sneakers. I just got these sneakers and I’m already in love with them. I was looking for white sneakers for a long time, but I couldn’t decide which one’s I really liked. The Stan Smith’s that everyone has these day’s are cute, but they didn’t feel like me. These are perfect and I can’t wait to wear them a lot more!

I’m officially addicted to stripes… I have so many stripped t-shirts that I’m actually a bit embarrassing. I can’t get enough of them. I own so many different variations… Pink and white, black and white, green and white, grey and black,… but this is my favorite one. It channels my inner ‘parisienne’, which I loooove. A navy/white stripped t-shirt is a basic, timeless piece and a great investment.
Even better to stock up on stripes right now, since they are very ‘trendy’ for the upcoming season. Especially big bold stripes are everywhere, but I like to stick to my classics.
I think pairing it up with a leather jacket and pointed heels gives it an edgy and modern twist. As for my braids… I was just in the mood for a bit of a quirky hairstyle.

Yes, you saw it correctly. There’s a cactus and a donut on my pants and I’m obsessed with them. Aren’t they so much fun?! I got these pants last fall, but it had already cooled down too much to wear them so I’ve been waiting to get them out for months.
Perfect timing because Patches are EVERYWHERE right now! I love the way they make your outfit look so playful and colorful. I tent to have a bit of a classic style, so I try to mix classics with fun, trendy items like these pants.
