Hello, everybody! It’s springtime, and that means everything is blooming, the sun is shining, and everyone is ready to update their wardrobe. I recently did a massive closet clean out, and I quickly realized that I had nothing to wear anymore. My style has certainly changed since last spring and I’m just loving all the new trends, so I did a little shopping (and by that I mean A LOT of shopping). I did find some of these items at outlet stores, so I will link everything that I can find! Read on to see what I picked up!
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Shoreline Slip On: The first thing I have to talk about is my love for my new Converse. I’ve been wanting a pair of white sneakers for so long, but having such big feet, I was worried they would make me look clownish. I will say, if you do have bigger feet, I would recommend the Shorelines over the standard unisex low tops. They aren’t quite as long and narrow-looking and don’t emphasis my foot size. Plus, they go with everything! Jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, you name it. I don’t know what took me so long!
LOFT Striped Tie-front T-Shirt: I think technically, this t-shirt (top in picture above) is meant to be loungewear. I found it at LOFT Outlet and, because I’m obsessed with stripes and cropped t-shirts, I just had to have it. I would typically wear this with black high-waisted jeans or shorts, but you could totally wear it with leggings.
H&M Nepped T-shirt: I spend way too many hours browsing H&M, both in-store and online. I walked past this adorable graphic t-shirt about three times before I finally decided I needed it in my wardrobe. It’s so bright and cheery and I love all the cheeky embroidery on it.
J. Crew Ruffle-sleeve Top: One trend that I’m loving this season is unique sleeves on shirts and dresses. The 70’s are definitely inspiring all the flared sleeves I’ve been seeing, and I loved that the flare on this t-shirt was short-sleeved. And also stripes–because I can never have enough of those. The shirt is slightly cropped so I would probably pair it with a pencil skirt or high-waisted jeans. It would look great with a bright pair of shorts as well!
American Eagle Camisole: I also found this pretty tank at the outlets. I love that it’s black but has such a lovely, bright floral pattern. It is very strappy, so I would recommend wearing a bralette underneath. I plan to wear this with black jeans and my black lace kimono or denim shorts for summer.
H&M Super Skinny High Jeggings: I have not found jeans that fit me in the last two years. That’s right–I went two years without wearing jeans. Then, one miraculous day, I walked into H&M and found three pairs! The high-waisted jeggings (pictured middle) are so comfortable and look great with cropped shirts and blouses. The denim is very thick–I would never guess that they were jeggings just by feeling them. I’m so happy to finally have a pair of high-waisted jeans to call my own!
H&M Feather Soft Low Jeggings: These were the first jeans I found at H&M (pictured top and bottom) and I couldn’t believe how soft and stretchy they were. These really don’t feel like jeans when you have them on, and they are definitely thinner than the high-waisted pair. H&M calls them low waist jeans, but on me they fit more mid-rise. If you have a hard time finding jeans that fit your thighs and butt as well as your waist, these are the ones for you!
Forever 21 Not for Everybody Pullover: I’m absolutely obsessed with this cropped sweatshirt. I have always found the band at the bottom of sweatshirts to be so awkward. They ride up and get folded underneath…I just can’t deal with them. This sweatshirt looks like someone cut the band right off and I love how unfinished the hem looks. My favorite part though, is the stitching on the front. Plus, it’s proven to be a good conversation starter!
H&M Flared-Sleeve Sweatshirt: This sweatshirt is probably one of my favorite things in my closet. One, because I love the embroidery on it, but mostly because it has flared, quarter-length sleeves. It’s pretty long for a sweatshirt, but I typically tuck the front into black jeans. It’s surprisingly warm and looks great underneath an oversized, denim jacket.
Forever 21 Ohayou Colorblocked Sweatshirt: I was hardcore stalking this sweatshirt on the Forever 21 website. I tried finding it stores and was about give up when I saw it glowing from a lone rack in the corner one day. I love the colorblocking on this top. It really brightens up what could be a boring old sweatshirt. It is cropped with a distressed hem, and I typically pair it with blue jeans and my white converse. I could honestly live in it.
