You know when the seasons change, or you travel somewhere warm, and have zero idea what to wear? Yep, I feel that every spring.
Good news, though. I’ve finally landed on a combo that I can wear all spring and summer long, to warm locations, etc. and still feel like my black-denim, rocker-chic, sporty-loving self. This combination consists of a boxy linen-blend tee (stripes, please!), the linen pants I’ve worn three years and counting (with sporty details of course), and my beloved Birkenstock Arizona slide sandals in white (but with an upgrade!)
I recently popped this on (with some pink sunnies, because rose-colored glasses make everything better) to live my best life at a conference in Palm Springs.
A Chic + Breezy Spring Outfit That Goes From Playtime To Professional
First off, this boxy linen top from FRAME is amazing. It’s breezy and cool but still keeps you covered from the sun on days you want that. Stripes are by far my favorite when it comes to tees and tops, especially in spring. It’s the nod to the French vibes I love. Shana has this top in another color from last summer and adores it too. TTS. I went with a medium for a little more length.
Next, let’s talk about these Caslon linen track pants. You may have heard me raving about them last summer (or the summer before). I adore them! They were my most-worn the past two summers with a black tank top and sandals. I love the shape of the hem for some added interest, and the pants themselves are super-comfy. They’ll stretch a bit with wear but won’t get all baggy.
One shoutout for my Madewell Sydney crossbody bag that wound up being totally perfect all week. The color, the size, the crossbody fit…all were spot-on what I needed on my trip. The magnetic closure at the top is also amazing for keeping everything secure, and I LOVE the tan shade with the white Birks. Will be rocking that combo all summer long.
Last, but certainly not least, are these new Birkenstock Arizona Exquisite slide sandals I found at Nordstrom. They’re a new style this year and are beautifully all monochromatic, down to the buckles. They’re so chic and even more stunning in person. I’ve had white Arizona slides for a few summers now, but the buckles were silver…this style just levels up in a gorgeous way.
A Week Of Sunshine & Friends: What She’s Wearing
Oh, hi, and how fab and gorgeous is my bestie Nicole and her bebe, Remy? I go by Auntie Lala, and NBD, but Remy said “Lala” on this trip. I know.
They live in Toronto, so we jump at the chance to meet up whenever actually possible…lucky us that gets to be at a conference in Palm Springs most years in March!
Do not skip checking out her Open Edit tee (only $19!) and these gorgeous Citizens of Humanity jeans in white that fit her like a dream. She loves a Birkenstock look for spring too! She chose, from the same Exquisite line, black Birkenstock Boston clogs (with a grip sole!), so she can rock them in Toronto sooner than later.
Dear, Palm Springs…take us back already, please. What a lovely week of sunshine and friends!
Until next time…
