Spring 2022 Outfit Ideas

After a little break, I am back to blogging! I spent the past two and a half months in England with my fiancé, and I am so excited to say that we are getting married this July! Life has been super busy lately with all of the wedding planning, traveling, and working I’ve had to do, but I have such a love for writing, that I knew I’d come back to Compass to Confidence soon, so here I am!

In today’s blog post, I am sharing five spring 2022 outfit ideas. Spring will always be my favorite season because I live for the warm weather and the sunshine! I love spending time outdoors and not having to layer up to stay warm. Where I live, it gets warm very early on in the year, which I love. This past winter seemed to drag on a bit, so I’ve been more than ready to style some outfits for the spring time! Let’s get into it.

Outfit #1

Florals and denim; a classic spring combo. I’ve always adored anything floral, and luckily florals always seem to be on trend. Of course, how you style them can make such a difference. I just love this little tank top because the material is super light and airy, so you won’t feel too hot, even in the sunshine. The floral print works so well with this top because the colors are neutral and the print is subtle. What I think is so cool about this top is that it actually has two different prints on it. Most of it is floral but the other part has very tiny dots all over it. I am normally not one to mix patterns, but again, the fact that they’re both neutral and subtle makes all the difference! The two patterns come together at the hip in a little bow. This tank is from T.J. Maxx and I purchased it last summer. Every girl needs a pair of denim shorts in her wardrobe! These are another staple in my spring/summer wardrobe. I have a blue denim pair, a white pair, and a black pair. For this outfit, I chose to go with the regular blue denim. These shorts are from Target and they are by the brand “Universal Thread”. I love these shorts because they aren’t too short or too long; they are the perfect length for me. I don’t really enjoy wearing denim with too many rips, but these are really cute and the rips aren’t overdone at all. They are also very comfortable to wear, and they go with everything! They are definitely my go-to pair! I decided to throw on my panama hat with this outfit as well. I wear this hat all the time in the summer, and I think it is so cute. I purchased this from Just Fab. Lastly, my shoes are from T.J. Maxx. I always prefer a block heel over stilettos, and these are really comfortable. The braided detail is super popular right now, and the light brown color is gorgeous for spring and summer.

Outfit #2

This outfit just might be my favorite! Both my top and skirt are from T.J. Maxx, which is a favorite store of mine for sure. This white cropped tank top is adorable, and I absolutely love the little twist in the front; it adds something special to an otherwise simple top. I also love to wear anything white in the summer because it looks SO good on a tan! The material of this top is light and it is very easy to wear. I paired this top with this gorgeous midi skirt. I have such a love for midi dresses and skirts, so when I saw this one, I instantly fell in love! It is black with little misshapen white polka dots on it. I like the slit as well because it doesn’t go too high up, but it is still noticeable and even a little sexy. There is also a little tie at the top of the slit which sits nicely at my thigh. This is currently one of my favorite skirts, and I can see myself wearing it all season long. I thought that a pair of black cat eye sunglasses would give this outfit a bit more edge, and for my shoes I went with a simple pair of black block heels. That I bought on Amazon from the brand “Madden Girl”. These heels lengthen my legs and bring me more confidence.

Outfit #3

This next outfit is another favorite! I love button down tops, and this one is pretty new to my wardrobe. I bought this on ASOS last fall, and I feel like I haven’t had a chance to wear it just yet. When styling this outfit, I knew that I wanted the top to be the point of focus. The beautiful pink really stands out in a good way, and the pearl buttons are so cute. What I love most about this top is the gorgeous ruffles on the shoulders and at the end of the sleeves. The way that the ruffles move and flow as I walk is everything! A nice collared shirt is a key part of my wardrobe all year round, but this one works so well for spring due to the color, material, and style. I decided to tuck this top into some black shorts. These are just a pair of flowy shorts, but on the sides they have some lace detail that again, makes the look a bit more sexy. They are easy to wear, and pink and black is a favorite color combo of mine! To go with this outfit, I chose to wear my adorable strawberry Kate Spade Vanity bag. My mom got this for me when I graduated from college last May. To this day, it is one of my favorite bags, and I am so excited to wear it throughout spring and summer. Since the outfit included two plain pieces, I thought my bag could have a cute pattern to make the outfit more fun. Lastly, I went with the same black block heels from the previous outfit.

Outfit #4

If you ask me, this outfit is the definition of spring/summer casual. I have to say, I do love to dress up, so this is my definition of casual may be different to others’, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I bought this top white in Dartmouth in England at one of my favorite UK shops: Crew Clothing. You can guarantee great quality pieces at this shop, and the prices will reflect that. I did happen to find this top on sale when I went in, and it was the only one left. I don’t really wear yellow very often, but I felt like it was so perfect for this time of year. After a dark and cold winter, we need a bit of brightness and color in our lives! This is such a nice top because it is made of a comfortable and stretchy material, and it is breathable as well.  In the front, it has a sort of crochet look to it that makes it even more suitable for warm weather. I paired this with a new pair of shorts that I purchased from my favorite shop in the UK called Mango. I also found these on sale, and they are a classic spring/summer piece. A pair of beige shorts look so great at this time of year, and I really love these because the color goes with everything, and the length couldn’t be more perfect for me. These shorts can also be worn for so many different occasions and they can be dressed up or down. My crossbody bag is from H&M. I love the camel faux leather and beige woven look, and the gold accents are a nice touch. Although this bag was super affordable, I really like the little details on it. This is a go-to bag for me during the warmer months. It is easy to throw on and matches most casual or dressy outfits. For my shoes, I went with the same braided brown heels from the first look. I think the bag and the shoes look so nice together as well!

Outfit #5

Time to end this post with a bang! The grand finale is this beautiful floral dress. The light pink and neutral tones are so perfect and the lovely ruffles on the shoulders and waistline are very much my style. I will admit that maxi dresses aren’t exactly a favorite of mine, but this is definitely the exception! This dress flows so effortlessly and it ties in a bow at the back. Everything about this dress is so feminine and girly, and I think it is stunning. It could be worn for many occasions such as a wedding, a picnic, and even  a nice lunch or dinner out. I plan to bring it with me on vacation this summer, but I am hoping to get some wear out of it all season! Since the dress makes such a gorgeous statement and because it is long, I wanted to keep the shoes simple white giving me some more height. I went with a simple pair of nude block heels. Since black is a dark and bold color, black shoes would not go as well with the light colors and delicate material of the dress. These gave me the height I was looking for without making the dress look too short on me; it reached the floor without tripping me too! I bought this dress from ASOS last fall and it is finally warm enough to wear it! Overall, this dress and outfit could not be more me, and I am obsessed!

I truly love each of these looks for spring, and I get so excited to style outfits around this time of year. I have so much more content coming, but not just on my blog! I have recently started a new Instagram just for fashion and beauty content! Come say hello on my Instagram and tiktok: @the.elegant.edit. You can also check out my personal Instagram: @sacchere14. On both accounts, you will find my reel that I created for this blog post, showing me wearing these five outfits. Thanks so much for your patience and support! Until next time!

Valentine’s Day Outfit Ideas

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and if you still don’t know what you’re going to wear, I’ve got you covered (literally)! I love this holiday because I just think it’s fun to spread a little extra love to those closest to you. Plus, any excuse to wear my favorite color! Today I’ll be sharing five different outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day! No matter what your plans are, one of these outfits should give you some style inspiration!


Outfit #1:

I truly love this outfit because it is not only stylish but it is comfortable as well! I decided to keep this one mostly neutral, but with the addition of my favorite color. To start, I decided to create an outfit surrounding this gorgeous top! I spotted this when shopping at Windsor, but when they did not have my size, I decided to order online and I am so glad I did! This top is just beautiful! The material is very nice, and while this piece can be described as somewhat trendy, I feel that it is something I will reach for very often. It is also very flattering on! It is slightly cropped, but with some high waisted pants, it wouldn’t be a problem. For my bottoms, I chose to go with a favorite pair of mine! These black high waisted flare pants are from H&M, and they are so incredibly comfortable. It’s so funny how flare pants have come back in style. I just love how these fit me, and once again, these are very flattering. I think flare pants also look amazing with pointed toe shoes, which is why I styled them with my black pointed toe ankle boots. To complete the look, I added a cute white and black bag that I purchased from Kohl’s quite a few years ago now. If there is a certain part of your outfit that you would like to stand out, try making the rest of the outfit simple. This outfit is the perfect example.


Outfit #2:

Fancy dinner plans? You can’t go wrong with a red dress for V-Day! Red looks good on pretty much everyone, and there are many different style dresses to choose from. Whether you like mini or maxi, sleeves or sleeveless, there is a red dress out there for you! Plus, if a bright candy apple red is not your cup of tea, you could always try a burgundy or maroon. For this outfit, I chose a gorgeous red midi dress that I purchased from Fashion Nova last year. I love the ruching detail all over the dress, and it is super flattering without being too tight. It hugs my body without showing off too much, so it can still look classy. The neckline is unique as well. Overall, I always feel very comfortable in this dress, and it gives me a boost of confidence too! Since it is still winter, you may want to layer up just a bit! I think that this black wrap cardigan is the perfect piece! I wear this so often because it goes with so many different outfits. Since the dress underneath is quite fancy, the black wrap cardigan pairs so well because it has a nice collar and it ties around the waist, making it even more flattering for any body type! For my shoes, I went with my go-to black block heels. These are from the brand Madden Girl, but I purchased them on Amazon.


Outfit #3:

This outfit is perfect for those of you who may not have anywhere too fancy to go, or you may just have a more casual style, which is just as great! This top was purchased from Kohl’s toward the end of last year. I think it is simple yet stylish and perfect for cozy winter days. It is easy to layer this piece as well if needed. Purple fits into the Valentine’s theme, but it isn’t too out there or too bold. It’s casual while still a bit festive! I felt that jeans went best with this casual look, and these are my current favorite pair. These are actually mid-rise boyfriend jeans (or in my case, fiancé, lol) from Old Navy, but they definitely seem to be more high waisted. They also have a straight leg, which I currently love to wear. These are super comfy and they go with everything! For my shoes, I went with my white and gold Stan Smith Adidas Sneakers. These are so cute and I think everyone should own a pair of simple white sneakers. These can be worn in many different ways, and they always look fresh and stylish when worn with the right outfit. To finish off the look, I added my adorable crossbody. I got this at target and what I love about it is that it is perfect for running errands, going to an appointment, or if you simply don’t want to carry a bigger bag. This easily fits your phone and a few cards, which is all you really need to head out quickly.


Outfit #4:

This just might be my favorite outfit of the five! It’s fun and flirty, and perfect for a Galentine’s Day with the girls or a fun date night. Off the shoulder tops always look very nice, and I love the mauve color of this one. I purchased this from Windsor, and I am obsessed with it! The simple details truly make this top amazing. Plus the material is comfortable and even a bit stretchy. When wearing tighter tops such as this one, I like to keep my bottoms more loose. So, I decided to wear this gorgeous midi skirt. My fiancé Tom bought this for me when we were in England at a store called Sassy and Boo. I fell in love with this the second I saw it! I love the cream color and the polka dots are a nice and classic touch. The little ruffles that go around the skirt add some layers too it, which is beautiful as well. This skirt can be worn during any season because it will look great with any top you pair it with! Whether it’s a warm and cozy turtleneck or a stylish summer top, you will look amazing! For my shoes, I went with these beautiful heels. I bought these at T.J.Maxx recently, and I just love the baby pink color and the little studs. Pointed toe shoes always look classy, and these are easy for me to walk in, which is a big bonus when it comes to heels!


Outfit #5:

For the last outfit, I wanted to share a more professional and classy option. I started off with a white turtleneck that I purchased from H&M. This is a nice piece because it is so easy to style and it is great for layering! I have such a love for turtlenecks, and this one does not feel too restricting or uncomfortable. I love an all neutral look (plus pink of course), so I went with a pair of nude flare pants, also from H&M. These are another favorite pair of pants! They are just amazing and they fit me beautifully. The material is very nice as well, and these can be worn for any professional look, however I would wear them to go anywhere! With this outfit, I decided to pair the same heels from the previous outfit with it because the light pink goes along with the neutral and soft look. In case you’ll be going out, I thought a nice pink double breasted jacket would be a perfect piece to throw on. This is a favorite jacket of mine because not only is it pink and super classy, but my fiancé bought it for me in England! He knows me very well, and it was such a thoughtful Christmas gift! The soft pink color completes the look beautifully. Lastly, I thought that adding a bag to the outfit would give it a little something more. This bag was also given to me by my fiancé, and I just adore it! I did not have a nude bag previously, so I was grateful! This one is on the larger side, so it’s great if you have quite a few things to carry with you. Plus, it has a pretty floral bow wrapped around one of the straps, which I love! The rose gold details are also very me, and this bag can be worn with so many outfits. It’s the perfect every day bag for the girl who has it all (to carry)!

Thank you so much for checking out today’s blog post! I hope that it gave you some Valentine’s style inspiration or in the very least, that it put you in a festive mood! Be sure to check out my latest reel where I show each of these outfits and how they look on (@sacchere14). Have a lovely day!
