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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
