Mint and Stripes Spring Outfit Formula

I’ve said it a million times before but here goes again – I’m really just a jeans and tee kind of girl. Almost all of my outfits are some variation of this basic outfit formula, usually with a cardigan thrown on for good measure.  Add cute flat shoes and a few accessories and well, you’ve got me all figured out!

Last week in this post, I shared that I picked up a couple of new outfits from Nordstrom’s spring collection. While I usually stick to shopping them for classic basics that will last, they have a lot of trend options under $50 – including most of what I’m wearing here.

Cardigan + Striped Top + Dark Wash Jeans + Mules

I was first drawn in by the beautiful color of this cardigan but then…BOWS! Check out the cute bow details on the sides of it.

How can you resist these bows? Oh and it’s ON SALESizing Tip: This cardigan runs big, I’m wearing an XS.

Dark wash jeans are on almost every Style Challenges® shopping list that I create and there’s a good reason for that – they flatter ALL body types. This super stretchy pair is very comfortable and holds its shape well. The rise is also awesome, not too high or low. Sizing Tip:  These run a little big, I ordered down a size.

These gray suede mules have the cutest pearl trim across the front. Pearl embellishments are one of the spring 2018 trends that are on everything from shoes to jeans and tops.  These shoes are really comfy but run a little big.

You can never, ever have enough striped shirts. Can I get an amen? This black and white striped modal blend long sleeved tee has a soft silky feel and a long tail, which I love.
