I’ve reached the stage in getting dressed every morning where I’m kind of done with heavier sweaters and cardigans. What I want to wear are breezy tops, light weight denim, and my Birks. But what I want to wear and what’s appropriate weather wise are two very different things.
But since I’m learning to throw fashion rules out the window and wear what feels like me, and right now me feels like wearing spring tops – this is when I love to layer. This is also one of my favorite outfit formulas of all time:
What’s also great about this look is since it tends to heat up quickly in the afternoons here in Texas, the denim jacket comes off and I have the perfect outfit for a warm, early spring day.
The white top I’m wearing is from North Style and is their Smocked Gossamer Blouse Set. It has a simple tank underneath and the smocked detailing is so pretty. The stand collar and elbow-length sleeves make this shirt stand out among any other shirts I own. Because of the stand collar, it’s easy to layer under the denim jacket. I also really liked the way it looked.
Let’s talk about these fringe ankle boots for a minute. Part of building my dream wardrobe means going through every item I own and making sure I love it and it serves more than one purpose. At least that’s my definition of a dream wardrobe. I really, really, really (that’s 3 reallys) like these boots but am undecided on if I’ll be keeping them.
But just look at them.
Why am I having such a hard time deciding? It’s because of how tall they are. I have kind of short legs, which means when I want to wear ankle boots I have to either roll my jeans or wear ankle jeans with them. I usually like my ankle boots to sit quite a bit lower than these, and I was having a hard time getting my jeans to look right.
But they are incredibly comfortable boots. I love the block heel and the fringe is gorgeous. One thing to note is they do not come in half sizes. I wear an 8 1/2 and went with a 9 and felt it was the fit I needed.
Have you been getting the urge to wear your spring tops? Do you live in a really warm climate and have been wearing them for weeks already? 🙂
