There’s still snow on the ground here in Philly, but I have a touch of spring fever. On the one hand, winter weather didn’t actually arrive all that long ago, but I’ve been focusing on fall and winter fashion since the beginning of September, and I’m ready to think spring!

Cyndi and I have decided to start our Spring Fashion Series on March 1st. We will each post a different spring outfit each day of the month, except for Sundays, so that will be a total of 54 outfits for your spring fashion inspiration!!

I will be sharing ideas for shopping your closet to come up with new outfit combinations from basics that many of us already have, and I will also be sharing cute pieces I find at some of my favorite retailers to add variety to our closets.

I’ve been asked if I’m doing a spring capsule. The short answer is no, but I do want to settle on a small collection of quality wardrobe basics that will be the foundation for my spring outfits. Then as I bring in new things to try and share with you, I will determine if they stay or go based on how well they work with my existing wardrobe and if I think they will get enough daily wear.

In case you’re wondering, I do not keep everything I feature on my site. Shopping and sharing new trends and outfit ideas is part of my job, so you may see a lot of clothes cycle through, but that doesn’t mean I keep them all. Some things get returned, some get donated, and some I pass on to friends (lucky ladies!) Sometimes my office looks like the UPS truck threw up in here, but it’s all part of the job. Ha!

Today I’m sharing a spring preview outfit. This green Dolman Sleeve Directional Stitch Sweater came from Trunk Club, and I decided to keep it because it’s an ideal transition piece and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it this spring as well as next fall. I like that it can be worn with leggings and boots if it’s chilly outside, but the 3/4 sleeves and lightweight material will be appropriate for milder weather as well.

It is priced well at $39.49 (that’s 50% off the original retail value) and comes in green, grey, and camel. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. This top is selling fast, so if you’re thinking about it, don’t wait too long.

My leggings are only $36, and they are fabulous. They wash and wear easily and hold up well. (I never put mine in the dryer.) And they’re thick enough that you can’t see through them, but I still wear tops that cover my rear view. You are welcome!

These Frye riding boots were an investment, but they’ve become a well-loved wardrobe staple. Quality riding boots like this will never go out of style, and they are sooo gorgeous. They are leather inside and out — no nylon lining. I didn’t even know boots came that way until I tried these on! Ha!

This Twist Lock Shoulder Bag is only $20 at SheIn, and if you are a first time customer, you get a code for 40% off. Yes, I realize pairing a $20 designer knockoff shoulder bag with Frye riding boots is a bit incongruous, but that’s how I roll.

Most of my jewelry in this outfit is from Stella & Dot. Because I’m a stylist, most of my jewelry comes from them.

I’ve been asked to show jewelry at lower price points, and I do try, but I find that I rarely look elsewhere at jewelry. I recommend checking LOFT for more affordable pieces that are on trend and quite pretty. Kohl’s has a lot too, but almost too much. I get overwhelmed there. And let’s not EVEN talk about Charming Charlie’s. I can’t walk into that store without wanting to curl up in the fetal position, but some ladies love it.

For this outfit, I decided to accessorize with gold.

The necklace and earrings are both new this season. I love that delicate looks are on trend this year. The New Moon Necklace can be worn forward (pave showing) or backward (all gold). The Alila Lace Chandeliers are the perfect size and weight. Sometimes I feel like chandeliers are overwhelming, but these are perfect.

The Becker Cuff makes a nice stand-alone bracelet and eliminates the need for layering. I love wearing it with 3/4-length sleeves.

My ring and watch are not Stella & Dot. My husband gave me the ring for Christmas, and I’ve worn it almost every day since. I love pieces that have both gold and silver together because they go with everything.

I love how this outfit came together, and I can see myself wearing it a lot this spring!
