I hope everyone had a happy Easter!  We’re finally seeing some signs of spring here in NC, and I’m loving it!  I’m looking forward to several months of warm weather and sunshine to wear tons of cute, summery outfits.  Today, I’m showing you guys an inexpensive spring outfit that I absolutely adore.  It’s already one of my new favorites.

so perfect for spring and summer

My top is from Target – can you believe it?!  It’s super cute and the quality is great.  The cold shoulders and statement sleeves are also really trendy for this year (click here to read my post about all the spring 2018 trends), but I can still see myself wearing it for years to come.

It runs true-to-size.  I’m wearing XS (my usual size in many stores), and it fits me correctly.  It’s loose and flow-y, just as it’s designed to be – but not overly so.

Note: here is a link to the same top in plus sizes.

Loving the statement sleeves and off-the-shoulder style! Very on-trend for this year

I’ve also had an obsession with white jeans lately.  In the past, I was always a little paranoid about wearing white because I’m so accident-prone.  Having a three-year-old makes it even tougher, but this year I’m taking my chances more.  I’ve bought a few pairs, including this pair from American Eagle.  If you look closely, you can see they have destruction on them – but they also have a white backing behind the tears and rips, so they still have a solid look.  Super unique, and it also helps to give a destroyed look while still helping to elongate the legs.

Don’t get me wrong – on some days, I’m all about showing off my (faux) tan with tons of the usual rips, but not always. These are edgier than the traditional white jeans (which of course are still a favorite), but also different from your everyday, typical destroyed pair.

Note: this pair of jeans is actually designed to be a cropped style, but since I have super short legs (my inseam is about 24″!), they’re pretty much like regular-length jeans on me.  Most ladies will probably have more options.  You can buy a shorter inseam length for the cropped style, or a longer inseam for a full-length look.  They look great either way!

The jeans also fit true-to-size.  I’m wearing size 2 short, which is the size I usually buy at most stores.

Destroyed white jeans with rips & tears – but also ‘repaired’, so your skin doesn’t show through. Super unique! Helps elongate the legs, too!

This is just one of many gorgeous springtime outfits I’ve found so far this season.  I can’t wait to share more with you guys in the upcoming weeks!
