Hello from four floors up & happy spring!
I don’t know about you, but I am so excited for spring – warmer weather, longer days, and of course, spring style. Part of the reason why I love spring is because it is the perfect time to take a step back, look at your wardrobe, and consider parting ways with some of your older clothing items. This is exactly what I did when I went home for spring break, thus opening up space in my closet for some spring essentials!
In this post, I will be linking to a range of products, all of which will complete my “spring look book.” These items will range from clothing to accessories to home décor. Keep reading for some spring inspiration…
One of my favorite looks for spring will definitely involve pairing these Madewell 9″ high-rise skinny crop jeans with other items in my closet. These jeans have a classic blue hue that will complement any outfit. Also, they are extremely comfortable and pair great with slip-ons or your favorite pair of sneakers.
If you happen to check out these jeans or any other Madewell denim, be sure to read about their Denim Donation Program. (see small infographic below)
Even though spring brings warmer weather, you still need a sweatshirt to stay warm on those chilly nights. I am loving this new Love Your Melon Sweatshirt. I purchased mine in the color light gray (of course) but there are several other colors available, such as red, dark gray, navy, and purple.
adidas stan smith
I am so very excited about this next item – the Adidas Stan Smith sneakers! I have been looking at the different Adidas shoes, trying to figure out if I should go with the classic or the Stan Smith collection. Finally, after trying them on, I went with the Stan Smith Adidas. I am looking forward to pairing these with cut-off jeans and a tee for the spring.
calvin klein denim cap
For those super sunny days, it’s always nice to have a baseball cap on hand. For me, I love this Calvin Klein Baseball Hat. Its classic denim material and simple logo make it easy to pair with any outfit.
opi nail polish

For me, succulents are always in style, but if there is an essential time to invest in a succulent, spring would have to be the time. Brighten any space with a small succulent. Some of my favorite places to purchase fake yet life-like succulents are Target, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx. I recently purchased this real succulent from a farmer’s market in Philly, but you could easily recreate your own succulent habitat.
One of my goals this spring is to spend as much time outside as possible. On campus, my friends and I love spending time on the quad in our hammock (shout out to Luke.) We are definitely looking to invest in a hammock soon so we can spend even more time out on the quad.
Bullet journaling has been one of my goals for this year. Bullet journaling takes time and dedication, but I have started to treat my bullet journals as list makers, helping me to check items off of my to do lists.
One of my favorite bullet journalists is @journalbeanie. I aspire to create a bullet journal similar to hers. Check out her Instagram feed (linked above) for some serious bullet journal inspo.
SPRING TIME SNACK
Usually, the warmer months inspire me to get creative with my snacking and consider the healthier options. For me, a staple to warmer months is fresh fruit. If you’re a college student, always grab some fruit before leaving your dining hall. My favorites have been pears and clementines!
I hope that this post inspired you with some new ideas for this spring. Spring is the perfect time to start fresh. Whether it’s cleaning out your closet, reorganizing your room, or eating healthy, this spring time is full of new opportunities.
