With spring [supposedly] around the corner, I’m already brainstorming casual chic spring outfits that utilize the best of my wardrobe staples, yet still feel fresh and fun for the upcoming season. Since springtime is a time of regrowth and renewal, it’s a great time to find an extra special piece or two to add to your existing wardrobe so that it feels new and exciting.

A beautiful cropped sweater, like the one I’m wearing here, can be made uber cool with your favorite pair of worn-in denim (I love this pair of high-waisted jeans I purchased a few years ago), and a pair of basic white sneakers. And, because we all know Mother Nature is slightly indecisive these days, your faithful puffer coat can top off the look, creating a fun little juxtaposition against the cropped jeans and bare ankles.

As far as accessories go, there’s nothing more casual or better suited than a chic leather backpack when you’re running around, checking off to-do’s. Tie in the gold hardware on the backpack with a pair of oversized hoop statement earrings and you’ve got a casual chic spring outfit that is comfortable, easy, and on-trend.

This look is part of my spring capsule wardrobe, where I am mixing a few new pieces with old favorites. If you like this look, be sure to check back in throughout the next few weeks to see how I’ve restyled it with just a few simple tweaks.

As an aside, I bet you would be amazed at how easy it is to reach into your own closet, pull out a few versatile pieces, and mix and match them for exciting new looks.

Challenge yourself to give it a try this weekend:

  1. choose your three favorite bottoms (try to give yourself some variety in styles) and your five favorite tops.
  2. Pick out 3-4 different pairs of shoes to mix and match with the outfits.
  3. Grab 2-3 different handbags (again, try to choose different colors/styles).
  4. Mix in 2-3 different types of accessories (scarves, jewelry, sunglasses) to add variety.

If you do that, let me know how it goes! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
