Today’s post is one of my favorite types of posts to do. It’s part of a series I call Style It Again, Sheaffer where I take an item that I love, and I style it again. Because listen, that’s how I wear clothes, especially my favorite clothes. I don’t just wear them once, I wear them again and again. AND AGAIN. And I figure if there are pieces that I know many of you have already purchased, then I know y’all will appreciate getting outfit inspiration for other ways to wear them!
In the past, I’ve taken one item and shown you several different ways to style it (like HERE when I showed you 5 different ways to wear the MUST HAVE leggings). But today, I’m going to take 3 different shirts and 3 different pairs of pants you saw a couple of weeks ago, and I’m going to mix and match them into different outfits. It’s kind of like the very beginning stage of what could be considered a capsule wardrobe.
CRISP COTTON BLOUSE| STYLED 2 WAYS
Click HERE for all my thoughts on last week’s look (on the left). The new look on the right is just a tad more casual.
I switched out the black Gucci bag for a cognac Madewell tote, and I switched out the black sandals for cognac sandals as well.
This blouse is a great crisp cotton and somehow manages to be both slouchy and tailored. I love the modern fit.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small, and it’s still quite oversized. I would suggest sizing down.
I grabbed my new braided hoop earrings to add some pops of color. They are big and make a statement, but are as light as a feather. I’m also wearing one of my favorite simple necklaces, the rue pendant. This necklace is great on it’s own, but it’s really perfect for layering as well.
I believe I first showed this cognac tote back in the fall, and they are now out of this color, but you can click HERE for a really cool braided option that screams spring and summer.
Check out the super cool hem on these raw hem jeans! They are frayed and it’s a pretty dramatic step hem, which makes them very unique and extra DARLING.
These have the Ab Solution power mesh technology that I pretty much swear by. I’m telling you they suck you in and are incredibly flattering, but they still somehow manage to remain super comfy. The power mesh technology is nothing short of amazing. These jeans will make you look and feel awesome! For size reference, I’m wearing my regular size 4.
These sandals are the cognac sandals I got last year. Even though I tried to get a new pair this year (I bought 4 different pairs to try out), I ended up sticking with these. They are classic and go with pretty much everything. They were also the most comfortable of the bunch. True to size.
GATHERED SLEEVE SWEATSHIRT| STYLED 2 WAYS
Click HERE for all my thoughts on last week’s look (on the left). I managed to dress the sweatshirt up just a bit with white jeans and sandals!
I love this gathered sleeve sweatshirt sooooooo much. The green is almost sold out, but there are other colors available, and I’ve already ordered and received the “pink powder”. It’s such a light and pretty shade of pink, and I’m thrilled to have 2 in my closet.
This sweatshirt is oversized (I like it that way), lightweight, very soft, and just plain cute.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Let’s talk accessories.
Y’all know I love the sunglasses. They are definitely the most worn of the sunglasses I own.
The demi stud earrings are relatively new favorites for me, and I’ve already shown them on the blog tons of times. They are teeny tiny, and although there’s just 1 post, there’s 2 little studs. They are so fun to wear, a little bit edgy, and I’ve received so many compliments on them. When you wear them horizontally, it even kind of looks like there are 2 studs in separate holes.
The charm necklace is so much fun! It’s got the logo pendant, a little spike with bling, and a turquoise stone. I love how this necklace coordinates with the demi studs because of the color, but it’s not a matchy matchy set.
Here are the white jeans I first showed you back in March and I STILL LOVE THEM. Y’all love them too, because I get lots of messages about them! Click HERE to see them styled with 10 different outfits.
I already told the story that when I went to initially grab the link for these jeans, I realized they are actually called “ankle skinny pants”. However, I totally think of them as just super soft and awesome white jeans. Now that I see that they aren’t called jeans, I get it, because they are SO DANG SOFT and stretchy….but I really do think of them as jeans and will style them like they are jeans. They are 53% cotton, 29% polyester, 15% rayon, and 3% spandex. I think there must be at least 5% unicorn dust in them too because they’re just that good.
They are really stretchy, very slimming, and incredibly comfortable. I love the white button and the little side slits at the ankle. They aren’t see thru, but I of course still recommend wearing nude undies. They actually come in 8 colors, and I predict that some of you will like the fit and comfort so much that you will end up ordering them in at least 1 more color.
Now, full disclosure, you can see the pockets in them just a bit. This is usually a deal breaker for me with white jeans, but for some reason it’s not for me with these jeans. I’ve decided that I actually prefer to see the pockets a bit over having white jeans with fake pockets. I really don’t like fake pockets. If they bother you, a quick trip to a tailor could fix this if you just ask them to hem the pockets shorter, but they don’t bother me enough to warrant the alteration.
Let’s talk sizing. I normally size up in white jeans and go for a size 6. The size 4 in these are perfect for me, which is my regular size in regular denim, so that makes sizing a bit confusing. Size 4 is my normal size, but I often order a 6 in white jeans, and the size 4 is perfect for me in these. To sum it up, these do run a bit big, so you might consider sizing down from the size you normally get in white jeans.
Here are the cognac sandals again. I’m telling you, they can be styled with all outfits. I wear them with everything from denim cut offs to sundresses.
LINEN BLEND TEE| STYLED 2 WAYS
Click HERE for all my thoughts on last week’s all neutral look (on the left). On the right, I’ve styled the tee much more casually with distressed jeans and flat sandals.
This is a great casual look.
I love the color of this tee.
This is the linen blend tee in “faded earth”, and it’s a really pretty light terracotta color (with definite blush tones). It’s much more generously cut than the normal v neck Madewell tees that I wear, and I really like the super relaxed look. I’m wearing a small, and it’s still oversized.
The butterfly necklace is one of Kendra’s newest pieces and I have it in the iridescent abalone. I also really love it in the dichroic glass.
These are such pretty delicate little bracelets.
And the sandals yet again because they’re awesome. They are a classic pair of cognac sandals that I will wear for years and years.
For those that are looking for an alternative to a skinny jean, but don’t want to go full on mom jeans or baggy boyfriend jeans, these straight legged cropped jeans are a great option. They are straight leg, they are cropped, they are distressed (without being destroyed), and they are just different enough to make me feel super stylish. For size reference, I’m wearing my regular size 27. They do have some stretch in them, but they aren’t quite as stretchy as my Wit and Wisdom jeans.
This tan pleated faux leather hobo bag is a wonderful spring and summer color. It’s a great medium sized bag and I like that it’s different than any other bags I own. The bandana is the “wisteria dove” pattern, but there are 18 bandana options on this 1 link! So many pretty colors and lovely patterns.
Such an easy outfit to put together, while still looking totally coordinated and pulled together.
I’m interested to know, how many of you own at least 1 pair of the jeans I’m highlighting in this post? They are really the only 3 pairs of jeans I’ve worn this spring, and they’ve been all I needed.
And the 3 tops in this post are all quite different. Do you have a favorite?
