Let's talk April for a moment. In the Midwest, April can be unpredictable in its weather patterns. Snowing one day, thunderstorms the next, and a smattering of simply beautiful, sunny, spring days. I love the promise of these days and their ever changing forms of precipitation. But what do you wear on a day that may start below freezing and finish in the 60's? That's the April dilemma of women anywhere in a semi-artic location. Today, I've pulled together a few pieces that I've purchased to carry me through these spring days as well as transition into future seasons. When choosing pieces for my closet I'm rather selective because (1) our early 1900's apartment has limited closet space and (2) I'm looking for quality over quantity. I adore pieces that are neutral and can be layered with most pieces in my closet. If I can wear the same shirt two or three ways in the same week, I call that a win!
The Everlane Ryan Long Sleeve is my versatile, go-to, long-sleeved t-shirt. I love that it can be paired with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a more casual look while running errands or tucked into chino shorts for a date night attire. It's lightweight fabric makes it perfect for spring's roller coaster temperatures. The Everlane Women's V is my short-sleeved version. Just as versatile as the Ryan Long Sleeve, but perfect for the those rare, truly hot April days.
With a grey long-sleeve tee and white short sleeve tee I can mix and match with just about every sweater, pant, or shoe I own. Since I already own neutral jeans and shorts for the season, there's a few special pieces I'd like to purchase. These Drapey Cinched Pants would be divine for travel or everyday wear, but paired with the white V-neck tee, it's a perfect for a spring date night. The Swing Dress looks stylishly simple on it's own, but I may add a chambray button-up for chillier days and evenings. And by spring I am more then ready to pack away my riding boots for the season. I've found these Bensimon Elastic Sneakers to be the perfect spring shoe. I'm planning to wear these throughout our trip to Spain next month!
