It’s spring! And to me and many others, that means it’s time to clean! As part of my spring cleaning, I have recently organized my closet and cleared out my wardrobe. I will be doing a post on the rest of our spring cleaning later, but today I wanted to talk about clothes!



If you read my post about embracing my style, then you know that I’m working on only buying things that I know I will wear and that complement the style that I’ve grown into over the years. This system has been working for me. I have found myself thinking a lot more about items prior to purchasing them and I have not been splurging as much. Most importantly, since clearing out my wardrobe I have not had one day where I can’t find anything to wear. I know that I absolutely love everything in my closet and I always have something to wear now!

So, I have put together this post about all the items that I think are needed for a great spring wardrobe! Spring is a tricky season because you still need some colder-weather gear for those chilly, rainy days but you also need lightweight clothing for those hot, almost summer days! While it is a lot, it is everything you could possibly need/want for this season & it’s a lot less than I had before!

First – let’s talk tops! You need everything from tank tops to jackets and I’ve put some of my favorites below!


AEO Tank-Top |H&M Basic White T-Shirt|H&M Long-Sleeved Linen Shirt

H&M Rib-Knit Cardigan |AEO Olive Button-Up|AEO Chambray Shirt|AEO Jean Jacket

Now – let’s move further south! For bottoms, you need leggings, jeans, skirts, shorts, etc.


AEO Black Leggings | AEO Skinny Jeans | AEO Black Jeans

AEO Boyfriend Jeans | H&M Denim Shorts | AEO Maxi-Skirt

In the spring, I LOVE dresses! Even more so, now that I’m pregnant since a lot of my bottoms no longer fit!

AEO Romper | H&M T-Shirt Dress | AEO Floral Dress

On those rainy days, you will need some jackets to keep that chill at bay! As my husband says, I have way too many jackets but these are the best ones!

H&M Blazer | H&M Leather Jacket | AEO Military Jacket | AEO Rain Coat

Moving all the way down – let’s get some shoes! I am a big fan of shoes; however, I hardly wore half the shoes that I used to own. So, I cleared out most of them, and have narrowed them down to various options that are perfect for any weather you may encounter over the next couple months.

AEO Pointed Flats | AEO Ankle Boots | H&M Wedges

Mossimo Slip-Ons | C9 Champion Tennis Shoes | Merona Rain Boots

Finally, we can’t forget about accessories! As you read in my post Embracing Your Style, I’m not a big fan of accessories. I wear the same jewelry almost every day and rarely venture out of my comfort zone. However, I do have some favorites as the weather warms up!

AEO Aviator Sunglasses | AEO Panama Hat | H&M Color-Block Scarf

Merona Cross-Body Bag | H&M Shopper Tote Bag
