Hey everyone! Happy hump day! For day 10 of 22 Days of Spring Fashion, I’ve got another dressed-up casual spring look that’s the sort of thing I’d wear to meet my husband for lunch or for a girls night out.
I first tried this tiered hem linen tee in white at the store, but it’s quite thin and I don’t like wearing an under layer, so I ended up ordering it in this olive green. It’s a tad darker in person than it appears in these pictures, and it pairs beautifully with black or white denim.
We actually shot a look in Nashville with this top and white jeans, but for today I’m sharing an outfit with the black denim option.
I tend to think of black denim for winter, but I sometimes wear my black jeans in the spring and summer for something different, and I particularly like to pair black with olive green and leopard.
This Clare V. haircalf foldover leopard print clutch is perfect for dressing up a simple outfit for a date night or GNO.
I had a “dupe” for a while, and then I splurged on this one during a Shopbop sale, and I’m so glad I did; the quality is stunning, and I’ll have it for a very long time.
Also, I love the sleeve detail on this top. While I’m a huge fan of the bell sleeves and other fun statement styles that are trending, this simple tie sleeve stays together and doesn’t get in my way at all.
For size reference, I have the small. It’s a pretty good fit, but in pictures I notice it does pull a bit across the chest. I don’t think I would like it if I sized up, though, because I think it would be too big elsewhere.
These shoes are from last year, but they’re still available. They’re incredibly comfortable and well made, and, happy day! They’re on sale!
If you feel that black suede is a bit heavy going into summer, they also come in a really pretty taupe leather that will easily carry you through the summer.
As you can see, I created a narrow single cuff in my jeans just there at the hem because they were a tad too long for the higher shaft on these booties. These jeans have a 28″ inseam, for reference.
I don’t usually wear matchy-matchy jewelry, but in this case, I wore these Tala chandeliers with my Tala pendant. I just felt like they worked, and I wanted to wear something besides my go-to pearl earrings for a change.
FYI, these earrings are still available from Stella & Dot, and they’re on final sale, but I had to find the necklace on eBay.
This outfit is a good example of how a few details can take a simple jeans and t-shirt outfit to a new level. It’s just as easy to throw on this fun top with black jeans and ankle boots as it is to throw on a plain t-shirt with tired mom jeans and sneakers, but this outfit can take you so many places a sloppy look cannot.
If you want to take it down a notch for more casual activities, just swap out the booties for ballet flat or loafers and grab a shoulder bag instead of a clutch.
