Spring Fashion Series

Photo by Amber.  (you know I'm a minimalist when it comes to accessories..so a lightweight sweater, a cozy skirt, and a pair of flats are going to carry me through spring!)

It's a challenge coming up with different outfits every day.  I want to look presentable, but want to be comfortable at the same time.  I had an idea to ask other people to help me come up with a collection of outfits that you would wear on a typical/normal day.  Out to run errands, casual day at the office, lunch with a friend, your child's soccer game...whatever it is that you do!  So here are 15 incredible ladies who are sharing some spring outfits with you.  (And I put them in categories to help you when you're searching through your own wardrobe!)


Light layers are perfect for Spring!  I am on the hunt for a cute vest, and a cute, funky cardigan can spice up an outfit in a second!



Stripes!  Every time I go into Old Navy, my eyes go straight towards the clothes with stripes on them.  Especially ones with bright colors like these ladies are wearing.



Look at these adorable patterns!  Floral, chevron, and Anchors?!  One of each please!



Mint is THE color this Spring.  Accessorize with it or make it your main piece!  I've had my eye on a pair of mint skinnies that just might have to make their way to my closet soon.



Now, you know how much I love a pair of colored pants (and skirts).  I think this is THE way to take your outfit to the next level.  

Aren't these outfits fantastic?  They all are so, so cute...but so comfy and practical!  I hope you got some inspiration to carry you through the season!

If you would like to be part of my Summer Fashion Series, please send me an email (ashanderson10@gmail.com) with the Subject Line:  Summer Series.  You don't have to send me the picture now, just an email.  You can definitely participate in the Summer Series even if you were featured in this one.  And no, you don't have to be a blogger to participate!

Linking up with ShannaLaurenThe Pleated Poppy, AV, and Kristen.

This is a post that's great for outfit inspiration. Although your outfit is so cute, it's hard to imagine that putting outfits together is hard for you! LOVE your Tory Burch flats, too.

Thanks for all of the great ideas! I love your purple skirt, the color would pair lovely with a mint cardi or necklace. :) Speaking of I find that I am reaching for my mint cardi for every outfit, for me its a neutral staple. :)
