MY 5 SPRING WARDROBE STAPLES

With spring now in full swing, I thought it would be a fun to share a few key pieces that have been rocking my wardrobe lately. Like my 5 (season-less) wardrobe staples that I shared a few months back, these pieces have been true closet heroes over these past few months, and with the temps only rising -- I see myself easily bringing each item into my summer wardrobe! With all that said, here are my top picks from my spring wardrobe -- 

1. Overalls - The last time I wore a pair of overalls was on picture day in the 4th grade! They were brown corduroy and had a Winnie the Pooh embroidered patch on the front. Oh, those were the days -- haha! In recent years, though, I've really been loving the overall trend and recently found the perfect pair at Madewell! I'm a short'ish gal (I'm 5'4 1/2), and was a bit worried that overalls just wouldn't fit my frame, but this pair has just the right amount of stretch and is the perfect length! I'm now on the hunt for a second pair -- hopefully either in black or white denim! 

2. Bandanas - Where do I begin? Bandanas have been a part of my style since the early day (I'm a Southwest gal through and through, ya know), but with the surge of fun prints, colors and materials that have been popping up all over -- I've felt more drawn to them than ever. I love the pop of color and style they bring to any outfit, and have found myself with a larger collection than I would care to admit! My favorite bandanas are from Madewell, but my sweet friend Miranda of Live Free Creative Co makes and sells the most beautiful hand-dyed indigo bandanas (and I have a hunch that you'll love them as much as I do!).

3. Straw Hats - Ya'll know I'm a true hat gal, and while felt + wool styles are my fall and winter jams, in the spring and summertime - I'm all about that straw style! This Cuyana summer hat has been a favorite lately, but I'm also a big fan of Gigi Pip's straw selection, along with this Madewell beauty! No matter which style you choose, though, I'm sure you'll be loving this straw trend as much as I am!

4. Vans Slip-Ons - Classic Vans slip-ons? Count me in! I've been wearing this same style since I was a baby (true story), so rocking this style once again only feels natural! Plus, they're super comfortable and add an element of cool to any outfit! 

5. Small Cross-Body Bags - Cross-body bags are my love language -- it's true! This rusty red circle bag from Madewell has been my go-lately (I love how it looks paired with jeans or a dress (+ it's now on sale!)), but I've also been loving this classic Coach Saddle bag! Spring is the perfect season to swap out your heavy duty bags for a lighter, brighter version! Who am I kidding, though -- I love a good, classic cross-body any time of the year! 

And there you have it! My 5 Spring Wardrobe Staples - which, again, happen to almost all be from Madewell! I promise I didn't plan this when I first started writing this post, but truth be told -- they're just killing it right now! And I would love to hear -- what are your 5 spring wardrobe staples? Do we share any of the same ones? Are you currently shopping for any spring/summer staples?
