What to Wear for Casual Spring Celebrations

Greetings, friends! Today I’m teaming up with JCPenney to style a couple of spring looks for your outfit inspiration as we look ahead to Easter weekend.

These are on the more casual end of the spectrum, for those of us who have casual spring celebrations on the horizon — basically anything where dressing up a great pair of jeans is appropriate. As y’all know, this is my favorite type of outfit to style (and wear!)

I’m wearing these Levi’s 711 Skinny Ankle Jeans and taupe heeled sandals for both outfits.

The Levi’s 711 is the closest style I could find to my favorite legging jeans. They have a comfortable mid-rise and fit snug to the leg from hip to ankle. They have a good amount of stretch and are very comfortable.

They seem to run more true to size than the other Levi’s I’ve tried — I’m wearing the 29, and I think I could even size down to the 28 because they’re a little loose around the waistband and hip area.

These jeans have a 27″ inseam, which is on the shorter end of the spectrum for ankle-length jeans. Typically “ankle length” is from 27 — 29 inches, but of course where they actually hit your leg will depend on your height and body type. I’m 5’5″, for reference.

On me, these jeans are the perfect length for wearing with booties and sandals that have a higher shaft, as these do.

I absolutely love the color and styling on these sandals. The strap design and ring detail are on trend, and the chunky 3.25″ heel gives them plenty of stability. I find them very easy to walk in.

My only caveat is that they run big. I ordered my usual 8, but I could use a 7.5.

On top, I’m wearing this pretty floral number by Liz Claiborne. While I like it paired with jeans, this top would also make a great work wear piece for those of you who need that.

It feels really nice on, and it comes in a bunch of great prints. The sesame geo would be gorgeous paired with black pants, and the black spots goes well with black or white, or you could pop it with a pair of yellow or pink pants.

I like the zipper detail in the back and the way it skims the body nicely without clinging. This top runs true to size; for reference, I’m wearing the small.

I topped off the look with a white denim jacket — my go-to “completer piece” during spring and summer.

This outfit combines all 3 of my components for making an interesting outfit — the blouse is the focal point, the jacket is the completer piece, and the edgy sandals create a nice juxtaposition with the feminine blouse.

I’m also wearing gold bangles and double hoop earrings.

For a more casual look, I swapped out the floral blouse for this ruched sleeve striped tee. This is another Liz Claiborne piece, and I love the ruched detail on the sleeve and the flattering v-neckline.

It comes in several color combos. I also ordered the green and navy stripe, which I like a lot, but I decided to wear this rose garden stripe because of how well it complements the bag I’m carrying.

This is the perfect outfit for a casual family get-together this spring or for meeting a friend for coffee. For a more casual vibe, you could swap out the heeled sandals for flat sandals or sneakers.
