We have been in this strange weather pattern where the weeks are super cold, but the weekends bring bright sunny days, with temperatures reaching into the upper 60s.  This pre-Spring time can be tricky to dress for, but I felt like this outfit finally struck the right balance!

I have had this jean jacket since college & it is an all time favorite. I actually have a much more expensive designer denim jacket, but this Gap classic is the one I reach for most of the time! (Get 35% off your Gap purchase with code THANKU)

I recently took a tough look at what I had in my closet - identifying what the areas that I need to stop purchasing, but also pinpointing what pieces I wear most often. During warmer months, I love being able to throw on casual dresses & appreciate how simple it is to look pulled together in a dress + easy accessories. In my effort to add more casual dresses, I found this shirtdress & fell in love with the tied waist detail & long sleeves that look great rolled up! (Sale alert - all sizes are still in stock & it is now on sale for under $50 - shop it here!)

Then it is all about the details. I've had these Jessica Simpson mules for several years & at the time that I purchased them they were a style that I thought was super unique & wasn't seeing around hardly at all. Now, mules are all the rage, and this style will continue to be hot for Spring/Summer. This Steve Madden pair is super similar to the ones I have on, while these Tory Burch babies are topping my lust list, and I just added these Hushpuppies mules to my closet & adore the color blocked details. 

The other piece that I added to my closet for Spring is a neutral bag that can be worn for many occasions - my new bucket bag from Sole Society! The cognac color is so dreamy & the size is spot on. This is my first entry into the bucket bag trend, and now I can see why they are so popular! If you are on the search for a bucket bag of your own, I do highly recommend this style & it comes in other colors & a fringe option too!
