I don’t know if it’s the fact that being stuck inside with a toddler has made winter seem extra long or what, but I don’t remember a year when I’ve been this anxious for spring! In most places I’ve lived, I’ve been able to pack away my sweaters sometime in March, so right after Valentine’s Day, I start eyeing my short-sleeved tops and dresses in the back of my closet :) I was originally planning to do a capsule wardrobe this spring (I did one a few years ago in the fall and LOVED it), but decided to bump it to summer instead. I always get stuck in a rut dressing for summer weather and activities, so I think I would benefit from doing it then more…spring, on the other hand, feels especially inspiring to me. That said, I’m due for a warm-weather-clothes closet cleanout, so I rounded up some inspiration to hone in on what I really want to wear in the season ahead (and help dissuade me from purchasing anything outside of my list).

Color palette: Blush, French blue, white, navy, khaki, black
Patterns: Stripes, gingham, floral
Already in my closet (some similar, available pieces linked below): Classic beige trench coat, white blouse, blue and pink long-sleeve tees, a blush tote, white jeans, a silky scarf, gingham button-downs, chambray button-down, lace-up espadrilles
On my wish list: a denim jacket, a new striped tee, a tailored shirtdress, classic flats
Is there anything in particular that you’re excited to wear this spring?
