Happy almost-Friday, friends! Having Monday off for Easter has really made this week fly by! The weather has been incredible, too, making it really hard to focus inside!
I recently changed over my closet for the season, and gone are the sweaters, fleece, and boots… bring on the tees, tanks, and sandals!
I will definitely add some fun new pieces, but the core of my Spring closet is a handful of basics that serve as the foundation of most of my outfits.
A white tee tucked in to jeans, knotted with a skirt, or layered under a jean jacket. Lightweight denim to dress up and down with sandals or sneakers. A classic bag for pairing with everything from dresses to jeans. And of course a few key accessories to give the outfit spark.
Today I’m sharing my Spring Essentials, starting with a quality white tee, classic jeans, and stylish sneakers, and it can all be found at Zappos!
I have a few white tees I wear on repeat, and this Madewell v-neck pocket tee is always one I reach for. It’s super soft and quality cotton, with an easy fit that’s not too slouchy. It’s not sheer and washes well.
Madewell also makes fun jewels in classic shapes and finishes, like this layer necklace and my chunky hoop earrings.

Fit Tip: It’s a fitted tee, but I prefer it more relaxed and size up to a small and sometimes a medium (I have it in several colors!).
I found these Levi’s earlier this season, and it only took one wear to become new favorites. They start a little stiff and snug, but quickly form to your body and become increasingly comfortable with each wear.
I love the light wash for Spring styles, and the straight leg is perfect for sneakers or sandals. The high waist offers extra tummy support and means no gaping in the back.
They are 100% cotton, which takes a little getting used to after years of stretchy jeans, but I now adore them!
Fit Tip: They’re true to size, I’m in a 26.
Veja sneakers are definitely an investment, but are so super stylish! They have a built-in, hidden wedge that gives you a lift and elongates the legs. They come in a range of darling color combos, too.
The leather gets softer with each wear, but the tongue is a little stiff in the beginning. I solve that by pulling it over to the side!
Fit Tip: Vejas run large, I sized down one full size.
The leather crossbody is a classic bag that never goes out of style, and it pairs with a range of outfit styles. This one is a great size for the everyday essentials, and I love that the strap is removable!
It comes with a coordinating leather strap, plus a wider canvas strap. You know I love to change it out for fun stripes, too!
Another essential Spring combo I reach for regularly is soft jeans, darling sandals, and a classic top. I shared these jeans last month, and you promptly sold them out… but good news, because I found them fully stocked at Zappos!!
After a year of elastic waists, I was dreading the return of denim… until I found these jeans. They are the first truly comfortable pair of jeans I’ve ever owned. We’re talking wear them on a long road trip comfortable. Wear them to an all-you-can-eat Mexican food buffet comfortable. You see where I’m going with this?
Made of the softest denim with a good amount of stretch, the girlfriend fit is relaxed, but not sloppy. I love the rinse and higher rise for a flattering, slimming effect. I cuffed them for an ankle length, but I’m thinking of hemming them for a cleaner line.
Fit Tip: They are true to size, I’m in a size 2.
The top is a soft washed cotton, with button front and cuffed sleeves. It’s a step up from a basic tee, and feels pulled together and stylish.
Fit Tip: True to size, I’m in an XS
It’s officially sandal season here, and I pretty much rotate between my beloved Tory Burch Millers (the leather ‘Makeup’ shade is the perfect neutral!), and leopard slides. These have a cushioned footbed and are a fun pop of personality… plus a great price point!
Fit Tip: True to size
