Ideal Spring Outfit #2: Denim, Denim, and Stripes

For my second installment of Ideal Spring Outfits, I took this entire look straight from the Madewell website because I want every component of it!

The denim-on-denim trend is making a strong comeback this spring and therefore, I love this boyshirt and shorts combo.  The striped cardigan is just an added bonus!  The stripe has a very breton vibe and you know how much I love a good breton stripe.

I cannot forget to mention the side braid that the model is sporting.  MAJOR!  The side braid made a HUGE comeback on the SS 10 runways and I can’t wait to replicate this messy, yet totally simple hair style.

Transitioning Into Spring: Ankle Jeans

Sometimes for me, it’s difficult to transition into spring. I never know what to wear! Am I still allowed to wear black? Do I have to wear a pastel dress? What’s the rule on tall boots? Must I change my mood from brooding to cheery?

All I know is that I’m loving ankle jeans right now. I feel like they could be a great transitioning tool from winter to spring, don’t you agree? They show just an ever-so-small amount of leg. Basically you are telling the world that you don’t need wool socks & rain boots anymore. Actually I’m pretty sure it rains in the spring so scratch that theory. Just know that ankle jeans are perfect for breaking out of the winter doldrums.

So if you feel like it’s time to sun your ankles a little bit, here are my favorite ankle jeans:
