Spring Staples // Red, White, & Blue

Why red, white, and blue will be your go to spring staples

Dear Spring, you’re bit of a tease… The spring season seems so close and yet so far away. After a few days of warmer temperatures last week, we’re in another winter weather advisory today and I’m officially bummed.

Over the weekend I received my package from the big Shopbop sale, filled to the brim with a ton of spring staples that I can’t wait to wear this upcoming season. I’ll give you guys a hint, I think my all-black outfits are about to be put away for the summer and a whole lot of color is replacing it.

For now, I’m slowly focusing on re-organizing my closet and transitioning those winter items to more spring staples that can still be worn in this unpredictable weather. If there is one purchase from this year that I’m in love with, it would be this portofino boyfriend blouse (seriously ladies, it’s a must have!) as it goes with just about anything.

Since I was stuck in quite a few meeting this week preparing for my companies quarterly meeting, I kept my outfits on the business professional side (my office is more business casual) but played around with color. If there is one color combo that can’t be denied as being recognizable and universally flattering, it’s the red, white & blue.

Also, if any of you pear shaped ladies are looking for a flattering yet comfortable dress pant, I highly recommend the Logan Pant from Banana Republic Factory. They are stretchy yet flattering for any figure, plus they come in some great colors as well.
