Who else is ready to change over their wardrobe for spring? This girl. It snowed here yesterday, a clear reminder that we aren’t out of the dark just yet. Either way, we have been blessed with some warmer days and it makes me excited for warmer temps on the horizon.
I’ve been thinking a lot about my wardrobe for spring. Since having Charlie I have really wanted to simplify my style – step away from the bolder choices and streamline with more timeless pieces. Dave and I have generally classic taste. Mine is more on the feminine side but unfortunately Chicago winters don’t allow me to partake in my favorites dresses as often as I’d like. I wanted to share our list of spring must-haves for the whole family. Dave helped me with this so the items for men are coming from a good source!
A utility jacket (unfortunately mine is old) – love this, this, this and this.
A cashmere scarf to throw over any outfit when you need an extra layer.
A great pair of white jeans (also love these and these).
Sneakers to wear with everything (love the idea of wearing these with this dress).
A straw/wicker bag (also love this one).
A feminine blouse – this, this, this and this.
Loafers/ballet flats/slides – love these, these, these and these.
