season-less basics!

This is the time of year when most of us stop buying winter clothes (except for maybe some awesome deals - hello, sale season!) and start thinking about spring clothes.  But it's still a touch early to actually start buying for spring and really most retailers haven't even put out their spring lines yet.  It's this weird in-between season for fashion (and maybe for life!?!?).  The classic "in-between".

I am definitely starting to think about my spring wardrobe and am working on planning some fun spring themed posts here on the blog. But we aren't quite THERE yet. No?

This is a great time to think about season-less basics instead.  Those wardrobe builders that yes, you can wear this spring, but - maybe even wear now and this summer and even next fall.  The pieces that work for most weather (maybe except for the extremes; like super hot or the super cold).  The thing I love about these pieces is that they are so classic and easy while still be fresh.  Because as we say goodbye to winter I think there is a certain fresh-ness we all crave.


These are the skinny jeans that I am obsessed with.  Or they are available stretch version - which I also love.  They aren't cheap but these two pairs are the ones I wear about 95% of the time.  They are so so worth it in my book. 

Perfect for spring rain or blustery cold days with a sweater underneath, this trench coat is a classic piece you will own and were for YEARS to come. 

I wore these sneakers in jr high and now apparently they are all the rage with the gals in Paris (or so I've heard).  We all know Parisians know a thing or two about style.  Either I was 25 years ahead of the curve or these babies are back in style!  These are on my current wishlist!

You really can't go wrong with a classic camel handbag.  And these tassels are just the icing on top.  I LOVE this bag right now!

I love throwing a simple graphic tee under cardigans, blazers, jean jackets or army coats.  So easy, so chic. 

striped sweater will never go out of style.  If yours needs updating, this classic version is a winner!

Beautiful and simple jewelry like this pretty bracelet is always on point.  This is another piece that's on my wishlist!

I'm a sunglass hoarder... I love this oversized pair of sunglasses.  And the price is right on these babies!  Go ahead and "add to cart" on these!


My black distressed jeans get TONS of wear!  They are so easy to throw on with pretty much anything and I find black jeans to be extremely slimming too.  Which never hurts!

When I purchased a red blazer a while ago I thought it was kind of a crazy purchase.  Turns out it so classic!  I can see it never going out of style!

These pink earrings are the perfect spring and summer staple.  Wear them now with a sweater for a little slice of sunshine!

I picked up a similar long cardigan last fall and plan on wearing it this spring too.  It's the perfect extra layer without being too bulky.

I'm pretty much drooling over these tortoise print flats - I have the same pair in 'light oak' and they are so comfortable and easy to slip on.  The tortoise version is totally next level though!

This white blouse is the perfect example of a great transitional piece.  Wear it now with a cardigan and flats and then on it's own with sandals and skinny jeans this spring.  And then again with blazers in the fall...
