What to wear for spring 10 pieces >> 100 outfits !!!!

24th March 2014

Oh Hello Spring!
In the spirit of rebirth – today’s post is a crash course in a closet makeover!

A few Spring investment pieces can really reinvigorate your whole wardrobe and make you feel brand spankin’ new for Spring! So today I’m helping you build your spring wardrobe!

Back by popular demand, here is the spring edition of 10 pieces >> 100 outfits – where I show you how to get 100 outfits by investing in 10 new pieces for spring and working with the basics you probably already have in your closet!


Fun flats, novelty prints and florals are all the rage this Spring so your investments should include a Novelty print blouse, Patterned Sneakers and a Floral dress. This spring is about playing with proportion, so Midi Skirts and Crop Tops are a closet must have! Ripped Jeans are back and boyfriends are the new skinnies so tackle two trends at once with distressed boyfriend jeans. Pastels are huge for Spring so invest in a Pastel leather jacket to fight off the occasional spring chill and a complimentary pastel pump. These pieces will wear well together so pick colors that can play off each other without being too matchy-matchy. I suggest two shades of powder blue, but lilac and orchid or baby pink and dusty pink will also work! Round out your wardrobe with two patterned basics like a polka dot (or graphic) blouse, and a trench with a twist!


I’m a firm believer in basics! Every gal should have a few statement necklaces, denim shirt, jean jacket, crisp white button up, black tank, brown belt and wear-every-day-wedges in her wardrobe. Plus you probably have a simple graphic tee, full skirt, white jeans and metallic gladiators since these were such big trends in the past! Last summer was all about the Zara skort, which has quickly become a closet staple and closet must-have!

Shop the Basics:

I first created this post for fall when I created 100 outfits out of the 10 investment pieces I bought for the new season // see the full post here // After getting an overwhelming amount of requests to do it again, I knew I had to recreate it for spring! So without further a due, here’s you ten ways to wear each investment piece!

This year, spring florals are a little more graphic and bold. So a classy, floral, tube dress is a spring must!
Shop Floral Dresses:

Crop Tops are here to stay! Pair them with high waisted skirts to keep it conservative or if you’re tummy conscious, or show off your awesome bod with low rise boyfriends!
Shop Striped Crop Tops:
We’ve seen Midi skirts before, but usually in a dressy or designer way. This spring Midis are for everyone to be worn in day-wear ways and snagged at affordable prices!
Shop Midi Skirt:

We’ve seen ripped jeans before, but this year it’s all about the distressed denim in the boyfriend silhouette! Plus they pair perfectly with lady like silhouettes and layered outfits!

Polka dots are always on trend are so versatile! So refresh your spring wardrobe with a dotty top.
Shop Polka Dot Button Ups:

Pastels are EVERYWHERE for spring, but investing in a pastelly moto is a cool way to tackle this girly trend. Choosing to pick up a powder blue leather jacket or one with grey tones will allow you to carry it over into fall!

Shop Pastel Motos:
Sky high heels can be a blast but fun flats are cool lace-ups are the way of Spring. And with Keds participating in cool collabs with Kate Spade and Taylor Swift, this is the perfect time to switch your stilettos for sneaks!


Say yes to stripes in a big way with a stripey trench coat! It’s a fun twist on a basic that you’ll continue to use into fall and for years to come!
Shop the Stripe Trench:
I’m all about fun novelty prints this Spring, they help add a little sense of humor to your world and wardrobe! 
Shop Novelty Printed Blouses:

Baby Blue is Spring’s go-to hue! Pump up your shoe game with a pastel heel, my color suggestion? Powder blue of course! But really any pastel pump will do, just make sure it compliments your new moto! 

Shop Powdered Pumps:

And Viola! Investing in a few shiny new things for spring can really help you remake your whole wardrobe and get you ready for a fabulous spring!

Shop the Investments:
This post is here to stay! I’ll continue to create a 10 pieces >> 100 outfits for different seasons. This post was definitely a labor or love … so if you found this post helpful please let me know or pass it on – sharing is the greatest form of flattery! I would love to hear any feedback so I can use it to create an even better post when I do this again!
