Ok, show of hands, who’s ready for Spring? I don’t know about where you are, but here in South Mississippi Spring has already sprung, and I am on board and ready for the new season. Every time the weather changes, that means we have to switch up our style a bit, right? I definitely think so. Nothing helps me with a fresh outlook better than a fresh style. With that in mind, I thought what better way to look forward to Spring than to share some Spring outfits and style inspiration!

1. Powder Pink Trumpet Sleeve Blouse- H & M
I absolutely love simple, casual style, and this trumpet sleeve blouse screams casual Spring style to me. I also think soft colors like this are flattering on everyone. This top can be worn with a pair of skinnies or shorts for that casual look. However, I also think this would be a great Spring blouse for work. It would look great with a pair of slacks and heels. Versatile clothes are a must in my closet, and any closet on a budget. You certainly get the most for your money when a piece can be worn in different settings and with a variety of options.
Maybe going with pastel colors is cliche and over done, but they’re just so pretty. How can you resist? The rich jewel tones of Fall and Winter are beautiful, but by the time Spring rolls around, I’m looking for some lighter, brighter colors to toss in the mix. Loose, flowy tops like this one in a soft pink, purple, or coral are a must for me.
2. Strappy Tassel High Heels- Jane
One of the main reasons Spring makes me so happy is the shoes I get to wear again. Imma let you in on a little secret; I’m short. Like, really short. So, I love any excuse to bust out a good high heel. And it’s so easy to do during the Spring time because there are so many open toed heels on the market that can be both casual and dressy.
Take, for example, these super cute tassel high heels. I love the block heel and the way they are strappy not just around the ankle but around the toes as well. I think that’s a flattering look for everyone’s feet. The tassels also add a bit of sass, and I always love sass. Shoes like these that can take you from day to night are essential. They would look great with skinnies and a casual top or a Spring dress. Win, win.
3. Floral Maxi Dress- Jane
Maxi dresses are life to me. I think they are so beautiful and feminine. If you can’t tell, to me, that’s what Spring style is all about– soft, feminine looks. This floral maxi dress certainly fits that description. Also, I actually love the non-typical Spring colors in this dress. The darker hues tie in nicely with the winter months, which makes for a great transition piece. A dress like this would be great to wear to a bridal shower or event you might have coming up.
So, you know how I said I’m short? It’s rare that I can actually wear maxi dresses because I have to hem them, obviously. Sigh. That means, to have the perfect maxi dress, I have to find one that won’t look crazy once it’s had a few inches hacked off. That’s part of the reason why I love this one so much. Big florals or any sort of large print pattern works well if you happen to need a hem like me.
Bonus tip: If you’ve never ordered anything from Jane, they’re an awesome company with amazing deals on Boutique style clothing, shoes, and all sorts of good stuff!
4. Soft Glam Eyeshadow Pallette- Anastasia Beverly Hills
I don’t own this palette. Yet. My mouse is sitting on go, but my bank account is pumping the brakes for a second. The minute I’m able (not that I need another eye shadow pallette, but who cares), I’m snatching this baby up. I do have the ABH Modern Renaissance palette, and it’s one of my holy grails. If this one is even close to the quality of the Modern Renaissance, trust me, you’ll want it too.
It’s not just Spring outfits that makeup up our Spring looks. Our beauty routine is just as much a part of our style as our clothes and accessories. I’m a firm believer that you can rock any color lipstick, eyeshadow, blush, or whatever anytime you good and well please. But I do find myself in different makeup moods during the different seasons. I betcha can’t guess what makeup mood I’m in for Spring. You got it, soft and feminine. The colors in this pallette are so subtle and pretty. The shades can be worn casually during the day or amped up for night time. It’s a mix of mauves, roses, berries, and golds. I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the Soft Glam palette.
5. 1″ Flipperless Gold Curling Wand- Hot Tools
Hair is yet another way to freshen up your style for Spring. I love to wear my hair curly or wavy all year long, but I find myself styling my hair this way even more often in the Spring. Loose curls compliment florals and pastels so well. This wand from Hot Tools is one of my favorite styling tools. It does a great job giving me even, bouncy curls or loose waves. I have long hair, and I like the 1″ size. I can wrap bigger sections loosely for a very subtle wave. And I can also take smaller sections, wrapped tightly and create a piecey style that I really like.
This wand is not only awesome at styling, it’s also awesomely affordable. I’ve tried wands that are much more expensive, and I honestly don’t see a difference. My curls last all day. Or, to be honest, several days with a lot of dry shampoo. Hot Tools products always work for me, so I keep on coming back.
6. Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip Color in Cookie- bareMinerals
Let’s be honest, liquid lipstick can be an actual pain to wear. Most of the time they look amazing, but feel awful. Thankfully, the Gen Nude liquid lipsticks from bareMinerals actually look and feel good. These have a different texture than typical liquid lipsticks. They’re very cloud-like and not liquidy at all. Did I mention that they smell like brownie batter? Like, legit brownie batter that you make in your kitchen.
Even if you don’t like or don’t want to try this particular liquid lip, it’s the color of this one that is most important to me. The shade, Cookie, is a subtle melon that looks great with so many makeup looks. I don’t always love a super bright pink lipstick, but when the shade is a subtle pink, it’s very wearable, not to mention very Spring appropriate.
7. Aimee Layered Y-Chain Necklace- Bauble Bar
You can’t have a style guide without at least one accessory. So many people love this necklace from Bauble Bar and for good reason. It goes with absolutely everything, and it’s a statement all on its own. I get compliments on this necklace every time I wear it. The three chains are different patterns, which makes it really stand out. I love any accessory that does the coordinating and stacking for me.
Finding a statement accessory to go along with your Spring wardrobe is key. You don’t need to have a million pairs of earrings or fifty bracelets to try and coordinate with all your clothes. If you can get a few really great items, you’re all set. Layered necklaces and chokers are dainty and work well with any and every Spring outfit you might put together!
I hope that some of these items have gotten you in the Spring mood. Whatever style you like, think of the ways you can incorporate some Spring trends. I’d love to know what you’re going to be rocking this season. Let me know in the comments how you plan on changing your style routine!
