Hello Gorgeous Ladies! I hope you are enjoying your second week of April. Today I’ll be sharing my TOP TEN SPRING WARDROBE ESSENTIALS YOU NEED 2019 version. These are my must have spring pieces that form the foundation for my outfits this season and are a part of my daily rotation. They are also the basis of my spring capsule wardrobe as I can create tons of outfits mixing and matching these items.
You’ll find the categories in a list form and for each I am showing you example(s) from my closet. In addition I am also showing you my picks for each of my spring essentials from my favorite stores with clickable visuals. These will take you directly to the products which is always helpful to see current pricing, sales, and color options.

TOP TEN SPRING WARDROBE ESSENTIALS YOU NEED 2019
1) Cool Utility Pants
I always add a new pair of utility pants to my spring wardrobe. They have a very cool, effortless vibe but at the same time they are easy to style a bit more dressier with the right shoes and accessories. The pants you see in both photos are these pants in the gorgeous deep green.
This pair is high quality, has the best fit, and comfortable fabric. You can see it styled with heels and this cutie of a striped top – on sale now! (I made a side knot with mine but it also looks pretty half tucked) and this pair of heels. – ( See More of This Outfit in my Trendsend January Review)
In the below outfit I styled them with peep toe booties and a more laid back top. ( See more of this outfit in this Stitch Fix Review) This type of looks could be nicknamed my stylish mom outfits haha. I can literally run in them while feeling chic. 🙂

2) Fun Blazers in Prints
A fun blazer has been my spring must have since forever ago. I always look for playful colors, and prints as I don’t prefer preppy styles however I certainly appreciate the timeless classic that is the blazer jacket.
With this type of jackets the options are endless. You can wear them with jeans, pants, and shorts. Cute blazers look so good over slim fit dresses, and shorter styles look very put together with skirts. LOVE!
My blazer above is sold out but I adore this similar striped style just as much.

3) Colorful Bags
Every spring season I buy at least one bag in a pretty color like this beauty you can see above. Colorful bags are one of the easiest ways you can breathe life into an outfit, especially if you want to go with neutrals, or darker colors in your clothing.
I have quite a large collection of colorful bags; probably in every color of the rainbow and then some haha. I make sure that I have them in all shapes too including totes, backpacks and clutches like the one from Stitch Fix that you are seeing below with my new dress from Dailylook. (See more of it in my DailyLook Review)

4) Pretty Heeled Sandals
When the season turns into spring it’s always my cue to start bringing out my heeled sandals and to add a couple of new styles to mix. As I like to be able to walk around in my heels, I usually prefer chunky ones however I also have at least a couple fancier options like my pink shoes you’ll see below. (See more of my pink sandals here)
This year I am loving clear sandals and this one is super cute and comfy too. It has a very elegant, thin ankle strap which I find very flattering especially with the clear style that creates the illusion of elongated legs. (See more of the clear sandal in this Trunk Club Review)

5) Eye Catching Jumpsuits
I can’t possibly imagine the warmer seasons without jumpsuits. I wear them quite frequently, and I own jumpsuit styles in a range from very casual to formal. ( See my How to Style Dressy Jumpsuits Guide Here)
The above lilac jumpsuit is a recent addition to my wardrobe and the fit is out of this world flattering as it has a defined waist tied with the most darling bow. The cut of the legs are more relaxed so it would be comfortable during warmer days too.

6) Layering Tanks
Layering tanks are such big spring and summer essentials for me. I choose styles that are pretty on their own but also look cool layered with a lightweight jacket or cardigan. This lilac tank top from Hi Sugarplum adds such a sweet touch to a jacket look and the polka dot top that is on sale right now (see below) would add a fun print to your outfits. I have and wear it so much!

7) Spring Dresses
Probably one of the highest number of my new purchases during the warmer months are in this category. I just adore pretty dresses; especially those with stunning colors, beautiful prints and/or interesting details.
I knew I was keeping the above dress the moment I put it on. It had an unexpected color, a unique neckline (you can easily pair it with a bralette like this one if it feels too open on you) and the waist is so flattering. (see it originally in this review)
This dress above not only has an incredibly lovely print but the tone of green is just striking. I also like the handkerchief style combined with the off the shoulder neckline. Heart eyes all the way! ( I know you ladies loved it too from all the feedback I got on this one 🙂 )
The below dress made me feel like I was in a candy store, and it felt so charmingly vintage. The striped piece is very comfy and so wearable at the same time as it has an easy fit and midi length. (and this one is SUCH a value under $50)

8) White Skinny Jeans
Any of my spring must have list would be incomplete without mentioning white jeans. I think they make an outfit look fresh and white denim is perfect for showcasing those eye catching/bolder prints; like this one from Stitch Fix. (see more of this outfit in this Stitch Fix review)

9) T- Shirts (Especially in Cute Prints)
What I call “not so basic tee’s” are a part of my mom uniform so many days of the spring. I wear them during my kid’s pick ups and drop offs and while taking care of quick errands when I don’t feel like dressing up to the nines but still want to look presentable. These are usually plain pieces that have a great shape and sometimes they also have cute prints or embroidery.
The above Garden Vintage T-shirt is a great example as well as the embroidered one you see below. I can just throw these over shorts and jeans and be on the run in ten minutes. Such lifesavers these pieces are!
Oh I CAN NOT not mention that I have this plain Madewell tee in pretty much all colors available. It is a MUST HAVE for any wardrobe. If you’ve discovered it already you’ll likely agree and if not you can thank me later. 🙂

10) Lightweight Jackets
Last but certainly not least are spring jackets that do double duty both as a layering piece for warmth and as an added texture & interest to your look. As you may have noticed by now, I love myself moto jackets and denim too.
The above moto is a well made, and super soft I must say, jacket option for the season. I also love my new(ish) denim jacket you can see below and all the better it does not break the bank either.
This moto jacket recently came in a Trendsend box and you can see more of it in this detailed Trendsend April Review.
