With spring just around the corner, I'm dying to bring out my "springy" clothes! I seriously cannot wait to wear my shift dresses and critter shorts! While fun prints and bright colors are exciting, sometimes it's nice to just be able to throw on a comfortable outfit, while still looking put together. I think the trick is to go back to the basics.
I'm obsessed with Gap's Favorite T's. They come in all types (v-neck, crew neck, etc) and lots of colors. J. Crew jeans can't be beat. They actually carry "short" sizes, which saves on alterations or shipping costs. I just purchased the Matchstick and Bootcut jeans yesterday. LOVE THEM! Sandals or ballet flats complete the look. I prefer Jack Rogers. My feet have permanent circles on my heels from the soles of the shoes. I wear them all the time.
For extra flair, that's still simple, I'll add a belt, a hair ribbon, or (don't get carried away... remember: basic!) an enamel bracelet. I really hate overdoing it with jewelry. Most days I'll only wear pearl earrings and a pearl necklace.
Simplicity is key here! You'll look stylish, preppy, and ultimately put together... all the while comfortable. Perfect for running mundane errands around town :)
