Continuing with my fave Spring essentials from J.Crew, here's the second part of the photos I wanted to share with you. Lace-up flats were big last year and I'm glad the trend is still going strong because they are a great (modern and chic) update to the classic skimmer. A classic black pair goes with everything and is perfect to dress up any outfit.
One item that always comes up in my staples list (as seen here, here and here) is a black blazer, and whether you're dressing for the office, a meeting, a date or the weekend, I believe it's a piece every girl should own. I particularly love a timeless and simple white tee + blazer + destroyed denim look; and to spruce it up a bit I always rely on 3 things:
1. Layers: I usually either wear my denim jacket under the blazer or I toss on a coat or trench (like pictured)
2. Texture: A faux fur collar draped over the blazer or a bag with great texture does the trick.
3. Pattern: My go-to's are leopard and python; normally a pair of leopard flats (these are similar to mine) or a bag like this crossbody ;)
Hope you enjoy the post! I'll be back tomorrow morning with my regular links and reads post! Happy weekend!
