Early Spring | Preppy Pleats & Stripes

I’m thrilled you guys are excited about the Early Spring style series this week, because I loved putting it together! And from the sound of it, we’re all ready for warmer weather and lighter clothes, so I hope this week gives you some fun ideas. If you missed Day 1, check out my navy and white combo here. Today we’re switching to a work ready style, with proper pleats and preppy stripes.

Remember my formula for transitioning to Spring? This outfit follows it exactly by pairing a short skirt with long sleeves. I love the contrast of the skirt and necklace with the casual jean jacket, too.

When the days get warmer, I’ll roll the sleeves up more, and lose the jacket…maybe swap the shoes to a peep-toe. Oh, and note my new lipstick! It’s a liner and lipstick, all in one, actually making my lips look fuller! (Color ‘Pink Thrills.’)

Sugarplum Style Tip: Give your outfit, especially classic combinations, more personality by popping the collar, doing a casual cuff, or layering on the jewels. Or even all three!
