Spring Uniform

Thursday, April 21, 2016

I think interesting details on an otherwise basic piece are one of the number one things I look for in a piece of new clothing. Take this striped short-sleeve top, for instance, in the front it looks like a basic t-shirt. However, the button detail and v-cut back add interesting details to take it to the next level. 

Maybe that's why I end up with so many pieces of clothing that don't work with a lot of other things (I am planning on doing a YouTube video or something of some of my more ridiculous pieces of clothing). That said, I think this top is a real winner, the special details make the top interesting yet its basic enough that I can wear it all the time. It's the perfect part of my "uniform" so to speak for Spring. A lightweight jacket, my trusty rainboots (you never know), comfortable jeans (discussed in more detail here), and a simple striped top

Anyways, it's Thursday which means Friday is just around the corner. I REALLY can't wait for this weekend because vacation is right around the corner! And I'm thinking of changing over my wardrobe for Summer? Will I jinx it if I do? 

What do you think? Do you prefer more basic pieces or items of clothing that have extra-elements? What's your Spring uniform?

  1. I like that the top has buttons in the back -- so cute! While my rainboots are cute I hope we don't need to use them too much this season!

  2. You're so right on hunter's being a staple in the spring - you never know when it will rain here lol! I love the back detail on the that top! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. That top is so cute! I am mostly a basics girl, but I love a pop of something different. Buttons, zips, cut-outs... I just can't get enough!

  4. love your outfit and that top!! so cute!

  5. I love the buttons on the back of the shirt. Such a cute surprise.

  6. Those rain boots are the cutest. With all the rain we've been having here in Texas I could certainly use a pair ;)

  7. You're right about this top, the button details were a pleasant surprise! Very cute x


  8. I have a few pairs of Hunters but not in the packable version. Are they still as sturdy as the regular ones? I think it's a great idea they made a packable version, so easy for travelling! xx Rox-Anne, Celebratingthislife.ca

  9. Love stripes for spring too! This color is so vibrant, love it!
