5 Spring Essentials to Wear Now

I’m not quite sure what the weather has been doing in the rest of the country, but here in the South, we have been getting waves of Spring-like temps and sunshine a few days each week lately. It’s been fun to pull out Spring clothes and accessories, and start to incorporate brighter colors and open-toed shoes into my everyday wardrobe. 

Since we still have at least a month {maybe two} of unpredictable temps and weather as Spring approaches, I thought it would be helpful to share a few items perfect to start wearing now. If you have the itch, like me, to start shopping for Spring pieces, here’s a great place to start!

A bright colored dress and a denim jacket.

A 3/4 or long-sleeved version of a pop-color Spring dress is a perfect solution for a piece to wear now. I am loving this happy yellow one that’s under-50. This style dress can be worn now through Summer, and can be layered under a denim jacket on cooler days. You can even pair a taupe over-the-knee boot or ankle bootie with a bright-hued dress if you need some leg/foot coverage due to temps!

If you don’t already own a denim jacket that you love, this is the time to snag one! There are few pieces more essential to a Spring wardrobe than a well-fitting denim jacket. The Old Navy one I am wearing here is my favorite “budget” version…it’s just $34! This Anthropologie denim jacket is my other tried-and-true favorite. Both fit great, I just recommend sizing down or wearing your typical size {in other words, don’t size up!} for a sleek, modern fit.


Espadrilles are a hot shoe trend for Spring, and espadrille wedges like this pair are popping up {and already selling out everywhere!}. This $59 Steve Madden pair is a fab dupe for this more expensive version, and super-comfortable, too. This is a fun shoe that can start being worn now on warmer days. I love this style shoe with shorts, jeans, dresses and skirts. Since this style shoe is already so popular this season, I recommend buying a pair now, even if you don’t wear them for another month! {The pair pictured runs true to size.}

A crisp white blouse.

A white blouse is a classic Spring essential, and there are so many fun versions out this season. White tops are something that usually need replaced each season since they are prone to stains and discoloration, and this is the perfect time to year to find a new one to start wearing now. I love the bow back detail of the one I am wearing here…and it’s under $50.

Here are a few other great white blouse options to shop. All are under-$100 and most are under-$50.

Bright-colored statement jewelry.

One of the easiest ways to start incorporating Spring vibes now, no matter what your weather, is through bright-colored baubles. I picked up these fun jewels at Nordstrom last week, and the colors just make me happy! Each of these pieces are surprisingly affordable and all under-$50, and also make great gifts. 

Shop these, plus a few other favorites ::

Light-weight workout wear.

Last but not least, this is the ideal time of year to invest in a few new activewear pieces that make you look and feel great. I believe fun workout clothes truly motivate us to exercise, and who doesn’t want to amp up their fitness with swimsuit season quickly approaching?! 

These patterned cropped leggings are super flattering, this cross-back tee is soft and stylish and this light-weight hoodie is the perfect weight for Spring-weather. I also have to mention these fun blush-hued mirrored aviators that are just $60 and the cutest on! I cannot wait to sport these sunnies on Spring Break in a few weeks! And, of course, my rose gold Apple watch couldn’t be more perfect to pair with every Spring look!

Shop these pieces ::

Stylishly yours,
