Today I just have one outfit to show y’all. I know I typically show you several in a day, but this outfit deserved it’s own post. There’s nothing revolutionary about it, it just happens to be made up of a lot of pieces that are awesome closet staples. Pieces that I reach for again and again. Some of them I’ve had for awhile (I’m looking at you must have denim jacket), some I’ve had for a season, and others are brand new to me (like the sweater and the bag)! I’m also showing you how to wear white jeans for spring!
The Perfect Sweater for Spring
Even though the sweater is new, I can already speak to it’s value, because it’s definitely been the most worn item in my closet for the last 2 weeks. I’ve worn it with white jeans and wedges (see below), I’ve worn it with regular blue jeans and cognac flats (during our cold snap), and I’ve worn it with my favorite denim cut offs and sandals. It also comes in cream and black, and I’m seriously contemplating the cream because this blue one has turned out to be the perfect spring sweater for me.
I sized up to a medium for a relaxed fit. Sometimes I wear it out, and sometimes I do a half tuck. If you want to see the sweater on me without the jacket, click HERE.
AND GREAT NEWS! THE SWEATER IS 40% OFF!
MORE GREAT NEWS… The ladies at Accessory Concierge graciously decided to extend the necklace code again when they heard the Sims stone necklace was going to be one of the stars of today’s post! With the code SIMS25, you can now get 25% off this necklace, but only until Thursday at midnight. (If you didn’t see last Wednesday’s post, be sure to check it out! I show all 5 necklace colors with several different outfits!)
The bag is one of my new pieces, and I’m thrilled to have it.
It’s a great size because it’s big enough for all my stuff, but not overpowering. It has structure and doesn’t slump over at all when you set it down, it has internal pockets (1 zippered and 2 open), and the wicker and white combo is D.A.R.L.I.N.G. And you’ll find a wonderful surprise when you open the bag…the interior lining is leopard. I love a beautifully lined bag.
How to Wear White Jeans
Let’s talk about the jacket and the jeans.
I mentioned this in a previous post, but even though this jacket is 4 years old, I still wear it at least 3 times a week in the spring. It’s stretchy, not boxy, and it’s incredible how it goes with just about everything you put it on with. If you haven’t ever tried this jacket, I’m begging you to just try it. It’s unbelievable how soft and comfortable it is. (If you aren’t in love with my color, you can check out other color options from the same maker HERE.)
And my white jeans are one of the most worn items in my closet. I know some of you love your white jeans just as much as I love mine…and I know many of you have and love my exact pair. I wear my white jeans all year long (to heck with old rules!), but they are in constant rotation in the Spring and Summer.
These jeans are stretchy, they are comfy, they hug you in all the right places, and perhaps most importantly… they aren’t see thru. Oh wait, also of extreme importance is the fact that they are flattering as all get out. I have a 27 in the jeans, so they are true to size for me. If between sizes, you might want to consider sizing down.
I’m encouraging you today, if you’ve always shied away from white jeans, GIVE THESE A TRY! For just $68, they could be your beloved white jeans too. Give them a shot! With free shipping AND free returns, what do you have to lose?!? (I also have these from AG from many years ago that are non distressed that I love as well, if you are looking for a non-distressed pair.)
Must Have Wedges
And ladies, if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it 17 billion times. These wedges are MUST HAVES! And just don’t take my word for it, they have fabulous reviews.
I’ve walked all over tarnation in them, and my feet were GOLDEN the entire time. After I received at least 25 e-mails/comments from y’all saying that you love them too, I knew they for sure deserved the MUST HAVE status! They are true to size for me, but some readers that have wider feet have said that they sized up 1/2 a size. They are easy to walk in, look great with a variety of outfits, and are reasonably priced at just UNDER $80.
Here’s just one e-mail that came thru just this past weekend: So, I don’t know why I fight you. lol. I have been stalking your newly named must have wedges since you debuted them. I thought they were super cute, but I had bought the cork wedges last year and was having a hard time justifying the new neutral wedges. Well, I finally caved thinking that I would try them on, see that they weren’t anything special, and return them. That way, I wouldn’t be stalking them anymore. As soon as I tried them on I fell in love. The fit is perfect, the color is amazing, and they are completely adorable. Needless to say, I knew these were a keeper within 1 min. I can’t wait to wear them with dresses, skirts, but also jeans and shorts. Thanks, I think. 😉 – Jennifer
Jennifer, I hate to say “I told you so”… but “I told you so.”. #noidont #itoldyouso 🙂
I’m so happy to hear that you love them!!!
And remember, I loved them so much I bought them in black too. Click HERE to see the black on me with the black stretch cotton dress with the ruffles!
Accessories for Spring
These bracelets are probably the two most worn bracelets I own. They look great on their own, but they also look great stacked with each other or all different types of bracelets.
And I love how this picture shows the texture of the bag.
So what do you think? Don’t you agree that the outfit is made up of lots of great basics! Oh, and we can’t forget about my favorite sunglasses! I got them last year, I’ve worn the absolute heck out of them, and they are ONLY $14. BP actually has an excellent selection of various style sunglasses, all for $14. LOFT also has a great selection of sunglasses, and all of them are $24.50 and under (and they are 40% OFF right now!).
You can get the entire look for yourself here. Just click on what you are interested in, and don’t forget to use the code SIMS25 for 25% OFF the necklace:
I hope you add a couple of great basics to your closet today that you are excited about! You can also read more about my favorite white jeans and more spring and summer outfits. See y’all back here on Friday for Friday Favorites!
