Happy March 1st! Today Cyndi and I start our 27 Days of Spring Fashion series, and I’m kicking it off with this simple outfit that can easily be copied and adapted with items you probably have in your closet.
Fatigue Jacket ($88) | Pearls V-Neck Tee ($58)
Hudson Cropped Skinnies ($189) or a cheaper option ($64)
Converse Shoreline sneakers ($49)
R Minkoff Initial Bag Charm ($18) | Kate Spade Watch ($225)
Stella & Dot Pave Sphinx Cuff | Ring | Engravable Disk Necklace
R Minkoff Mini MAC Crossbody
If you don’t already have a Fatigue Jacket, it is something you might consider adding to your spring shopping list. At least here in Philly, the weather is unpredictable this time of year, and it’s nice to have a couple of lightweight jackets you can throw on that are cute and on trend.
This particular Fatigue Jacket is $88 at Nordstrom, and it comes in navy and white as well as the olive that I’m wearing.
The nice thing about the olive is that it compliments the pastels and brights that I like to wear in the springtime, and it pairs well with blue, white, and black denim.
Under my Fatigue Jacket, I’m wearing this red V-Neck Tee by Free People. I love the raw edge detailing and hi-lo hem. It’s a bit more special than a typical t-shirt, and it comes in 6 colors. I really love the Red Blossom; it’s so bright and pretty against nature’s drab color palette this time of year. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.
I kept it casual with cropped skinnies and Converse.
I accessorized with the Stella & Dot Pave Sphinx Cuff and Ring, and I carried a grey leather crossbody.
Here’s the full outfit one more time.
Now be sure to visit Cyndi and see the spring outfit she’s styling today!!!

You look great, comfy and cute. I have a fatigue jacket very similar that has been a little too light for the winter weather, but will be just right for spring. Thanks for the inspiration.
Love that top – super cute and looks great on you too!
Yay Spring! Yay fashion. Yay for you looking beautiful as always.
A breath of fresh Spring today! I have been noticing that lovely cuff lately, it is such a nice design. If we feel a slim straight leg Jean might be better for us do you have any reccomendations? Finding nice well fitting jeans is difficult.
Look for jeans that say “cigarette leg” – they are straighter but still slimming. 🙂
Thanks Jo-Lynne, I appreciate the advice. I think I have seen that description and had no idea what it meant.
Quick (crazy) question- what sort of clip do you use when you pull your hair back? I’m in an awkward growing out phase, and want/need to start pulling the sides back, but can’t find any cute clips that work.
For this, I used bobby pins. They look the most polished. But sometimes I use a tiny pinch clip. 🙂
Already bought my jacket!!! I bought mine at Kohls & they also have great tshirts if you are on a budget!! Love the outfit!!!
Good to know! I meant to try some lower priced options and ran out of time. 🙂
A home run right off the bat! I already have an olive green jacket, just never thought of wearing that color tee under it! So I’ll be adding go that to my shopping list.
Love the color of the t-shirt, but not the price! LOL If you hadn’t worn the sneaks, what shoe color would you have chosen for the green jacket combo? I have trouble figuring out what color shoes to wear with olive green (other than black, and I think that would have been too heavy for your outfit.) Thanks!
Oooh, lots of options! Nude flats, silver flats, leopard flats, or even a wedge sandal or wedge pump could work.
Jo-Lynne, I have a denim jacket that it does not cover my backside. Should I look for a fatigue jacket since it will cover more and possibly be more versatile? I really like what you said about going through our spring/summer clothes now and how to sort them. I am going to spend some time in the attic soon, doing just that.
I love your overall look!
I think a denim jacket and a fatigue jacket serve different purposes. I wear the fatigue jacket with jeans and the cropped jean jacket with white or black denim or khaki shorts, skirts, dresses, etc. 🙂
Thank you very much! Maybe I should wear my white jeans tomorrow instead of my dark skinny jeans.
Wow! I can’t believeI I wore this exact outfit today before i saw your post. See how much you’ve taught me??
Do you think leopard print accessories will continue as a trend this spring/summer?
Too funny! I do think leopard will continue to be huge this spring. 🙂 Leopard flats would be cute with this outfit too!
Looking good! Your jacket is great. I tried on my husband’s olive jacket yesterday, but the colour is a bit too harsh on me. A ‘greener’ olive would suit me better so I’ll have to keep looking. How would you dress up a fatigue jacket if you wanted to wear it out for a date? Maybe by wearing heels (can’t really see that working, maybe wedges?) or a fancy bag?
I don’t think I’d wear this for a date night. I feel like it’s more of a daytime look. 🙂 But you could wear wedge sandals, and it would totally work.
Yay! So excited to see spring outfits from you girls! Of course, your first look didn’t disappoint! I really like the fatigue jacket -perfect for spring, and the pretty pop of color with your shirt looks great!
Looking forward to more!
Cute. We are experiencing some warmer temps and this would be perfect already.
I love the color of the t-shirt! I am so ready for Spring right now!
Love how you contrast uber casual with a bit more dressy (e.g. Converse with gold jewelry and gold chain on bag). This outfit is so fresh. For those wanting to try a fatigue jacket without committing to it (much), my dtr bought a darling one at Forever21, which usually I avoid, but her jacket is lined and super cute.
Love this casual combo. Do you wear socks with your Chucks?
Thanks! And no, I don’t. 🙂
Does the jacket run large?
Maybe a little bit. I have the medium and I could probably wear it smaller, but I wanted to be able to wear it over a sweater.
