Casual Spring Outfit: Red, White & Blue

It’s going to be hard to top yesterday! Thanks for all the kind comments. I guess I should wear dresses more often!!

Today’s outfit is super similar to the one I posted last week with the striped 3/4 sleeve tee from LOFT. I didn’t even realize it until I went to edit pictures and realized I’d put almost the same outfit together again! I guess I know what I like, right?

This shirt has a similar cut to the LOFT one, but I like the V-neckline better. It’s nice quality, but thin. They call it a sweatshirt, but it seems more t-shirt like to me. Whatever you call it, I like it! I’ve already worn it 3 or 4 times!

This is the perfect top for spring and for cooler summer days or cool summer vacation destinations. I go to Maine every summer, so I’m always thinking ahead to that and save out some of my spring tops to bring along.

Here’s a back view.

For size reference, I’m wearing a medium.

I decided to go with silver jewelry for a change, so I threw on this casual Silpada Duomo Necklace and my D Yurman Oval Link Bracelet. The bracelet was a gift from my husband quite a few years ago, and it’s still one of my favorites. It’s substantial enough to stand alone, and it also makes a great layering piece. It seems to go with everything.

I carried my grey satchel. This bag is long gone, so I linked to a few similar styles below. I also really like this R Minkoff Screw Stud Bucket Bag in Putty that is on sale for $202. If I didn’t already have one of her bucket bags, I’d be all over that. (Word to the wise: it is unlined, which means no cell phone pockets, etc.)

I wore my Hudson Krista cropped skinnies and Converse, but this top would be cute with white jeans as well. For shoes, I would also consider ballet flats or wedge sandals or flat sandals… the possibilities are endless!

Also, the Hudson Krista are full price (I explained before that I got mine on a super deal, like half price, but now I can only find them on Amazon for full price) but Holli commented and said that the Hudson Nico are very similar, and she loves hers. They’re marked down to $112 on Amazon, which is still pricey, but MUCH better than $189.

On chillier days when I have to go somewhere, I throw my Fatigue Jacket on over this outfit. I like the contrast of the olive green against the tomato-red of the top.

  1. Super cute, casual and comfy! It’s amazing how much a vneck flatters you vs other types of neck lines – I find that to make such a huge difference on myself as well!

  2. I always go for the v-necks also. They are super flattering. You look comfy and still put together, and you can’t ask for anything better than that. I finally broke down and bought me some gray converse. You are a bad influence on me. Haha

  3. Yet another great outfit! I love the color of the top. And looks great with the utility jacket. Hmmm, I’m rethinking my outfit for this morning. There is a trip to Loft on my itinerary for the day! I was in love with those Chuck Taylor’s, but they were just too narrow. However, I was able to find a pair of white Keds with sort of a nautical trim that came in wide, that had a nice look to them. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s outfit!

  4. Jo-Lynne, I really like the top and agree how flattering the vneck is. I like seeing that the color of our shoes and handbag don’t have to match.

    Have a blessed day!

  5. I love striped shirts. Gorgeous bag-great color. I love neutral purses that go with everything! I wear my utility jacket all the time since I got it. 😉 xx-S

  6. Well due to your wonderful influence I just purchased this in blue. I am obsessed with stripes right now. I love how you styled this with the jacket and luckily I have the same style too. I am so glad I found your blog as well as Cyndi’s.

  7. Very cute and really loving the stripes. Definitely something I would wear. I’m in a major stripe kick right now! Really love it with the jacket too. I never would’ve guessed how versatile they can be. I find myself reaching for mine all the time!

  8. This casual outfit looks cute and comfy. I like how you blend the colors from your top, jeggings and jacket.
    I also like how you combine sneakers with outfits, and yes the sockless look makes it more chic style.
    Do you prefer to wear sneakers sockless ?, I think that is the way to look more trendy nowadays?
    Keep it up.
