I have been wearing these boyfriend jeans on repeat this spring. I can’t help it! They’re so easy to dress up and down, and they are oh-so-comfortable. This combo above is turning into my go-to. Easy tee, fitted jacket, my favorite jeans, and cute shoes. It’s always nice to really ride the wave in that comfort zone. It’s a great fall back for when something more daring just isn’t clicking. What are your spring go-tos?

Daytime sequins

I bought this top last fall before a weekend reunion with some of my favorites from college, thinking it would serve me well during the holiday season. I wore it a few times, loved it, and then tucked it away in my closet for a later date. This weekend I was digging around looking for a top to wear during some NYC exploring, and these sequins caught my eye. Never did I expect to style this top as a daytime look in spring, but sometimes inspiration strikes, and, well, here we are.

I often categorize various pieces in my closet as “nighttime” or “work” or “insert specific season here,” but lately I’ve been trying to think outside the box a little bit and mix things up. A year ago not only did I own no sequins, but I also thought their only place in life was during special occasions and/or Halloween. What I’ve found though, is that it’s actually amazing how easy it is to dress down a statement piece and make it feel like it would actually go really well with some sunshine. Layering is the key. Pairing your statement items with heavier, everyday pieces, will create texture and dampen the attention-grabbing effect.

What types of pieces do you have in your closet that you would never think to wear during a spring weekend day? Any chance you can pair it with a military jacket or a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and give it new life? I hope so. It’s a great way to expand the use of pieces you already own, and all I can think is cheers to that!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Monday and have a wonderful week!
