We’re having another very cold March day here, so I’m doing some outfit creation for spring to convince myself that spring WILL arrive. I’ve been doing some shopping, including a super-successful visit to a thrift store a few weeks ago. Most of what I got there was what I consider casual classic basics. I’ve also been focusing on shoes and building outfits from the ground up. Everything except the Inc jeans and the scarf are new to me.

* = thrifted

1 - *black/white striped long sleeved top (Banana Republic), Inc jeans, ED sneakers
2 - …same outfit with *black silk embroidered cardigan (Ann Taylor). A little pattern mixing, although I’d probably wear this with a dressier outfit. For fun I’m showing the top pic that inspired this sweater.
3 - Grey wrap top (BanRep), INC jeans, white/grey sneakers (Sam Edelman)
4 - Black/White bell sleeved top, *WHBM jeans, Red ankle strap flats (Zara). I’m still a little unsure about the fit of this top…it bunches a little at the neckline. I could take a couple of tiny darts at the neckline but it might not work so well with stripe placement. What do you think?

6 - *Light blue vneck (Gap), *WHBM jeans, grey booties (Lucky), pale grey/white leopard scarf
7 - …side view of booties
