Closet Diary 5.3

This was one of the first days where the forecast promised me spring-like weather so although it ended up being a little chilly, I was excited to ditch my layers and bare my sun-deprived legs in this new floral skirt! I always love stripes paired with florals and especially liked this combination with my light-wash denim jacket roughening up the girly pattern and a bit of lace peeking out from underneath my skirt, helping to solve my long legs/short skirt issues.

Closet Diary 5.2

My favorite spring purchase by far was this jacket. The utilitarian style is completely on trend this season, but it is also super wearable and I know I’ll be remixing it well into fall. I love the gathered collar, the drawstring waist, and especially the price – I snagged this piece on clearance for about half off! To showcase my new find, I went with a simple, elegant look – striped, ruffled tank, skinny jeans, and flats.
