late spring/early summer: GO-TO outfits...

As the temps warm and the sun starts showing her beautiful face I am pleased as punch to whip out the spring and summer clothes that I have been stashing away.  From tanks to dresses to short sleeve shirts to shorts... the clothes that were a big tease and practically meaningless four months ago, finally get their time in the spot light.

Here are a few of my GO-TO outfit combos as the temps warm... we are in the 70's if we are lucky and still lots of 60's and rain. So I'm not in full on summer mode yet, but these outfits make the best of the weather and my mood to dress lighter.


This look works wonderfully for still chilly mornings or evenings and as with any outfit this time of year, layers are key. If you are more of a skirt person... swap out the shorts for a skirt!


I keep extra tanks in my closet so that they can be worn with warm layers in the winter and on their own in the spring and summer.  So this time of year I am excited to wear them without as many layers! Pop on a light jacket and you are set to go!


The ultimate in simplicity and style... I just love a casual look now and then and jeans and a short sleeve top can always deliver.  I depend on jeans year round, what can I say? I'm a fan!

I hope I gave you some great ideas for your own go-to outfits for spring - 
do you have any of your own go-to formulas?

The last two tops are SCREAMING my name. And I really love those earrings in the first look. Not something I'd normally go for, but love them. I don't know how you do it. But I'm so glad you do.

I think my "standard" spring outfit is jeans + short sleeves + scarf. You pretty much nailed it with that one. Except I usually opt for ballet flats so I can chase after the kids.

Love the back of that last Anthro top...they always have the best details! That second top almost made it into my Anthro wishlist on my blog too...so many cute options that it was hard to narrow down!
