Ultimate Spring Style Guide & Checklist

Ultimate Spring Style Guide & Checklist - SCsScoop.com

Are you anxiously waiting for flowers to bloom like I am? It’s slowly warming up in Northern Virginia, and spring is in the air! I need to update my wardrobe with a few things for spring, and I saw it as the perfect opportunity to compile a spring style guide and checklist for you all!

Spring is my second favorite season (I will always love fall the most!).  I love layering clothes and combining soft, neutral pieces with brighter bolder ones as the weather warms up!  If you are like me — love to layer clothes and are looking for some inspiration for your spring style, this checklist is for you! The items on this list will leave you with endless outfit options for spring and transitioning into summer.

Below is a checklist for you to use along with handpicked examples of each piece and style tips. Some of the items in this guide are already in my closet, while other items I am sharing are in my shopping cart because I hunted them down while I made this guide!

Ultimate Spring style Checklist

>> Shop my Spring Style Guide <<

The guide below encompasses 18 must-have pieces for a stylish spring. I purposely tried to stay away from basics that can be worn year-round. I carefully looked researched the latest trends and searched for a wide range of pieces at a range of price points and styles for you all. The first option for each item below is less than $50. 

Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are often too hot for DC’s summer humidity, so I have to get them out of my system during the spring. 

Statement Earrings

There are so many fun statement earrings out right now!

Style Tip: If you aren’t sure about this trend, start with a neutral pair that is similar to your skin tone or hair color.

Snakeskin Mules

I may be biased because I just bought a pair of these, but the snakeskin trend is here to stay and I love how it looks on my mules. It’s a super sleek and easy way to spice up a plain or neutral outfit. 

High-Waisted Blue Jeans

It is all about the high-waisted denim this year. There are a lot of different styles out there, but for spring, I love the flared jeans below most of all! They will look great with wedged sandals.

Jumpsuit

I wasn’t sure if I could jump (pun intended ;-)) into the jumpsuit trend for awhile. But, this year the trend is bigger than ever and I am diving in. I especially love the more dressy and flowy jumpsuits.

Style Tip: if you aren’t a fan of how the elastic waists look on some jumpsuits, wear a belt over it!

Flat Suede Booties

I love wearing suede booties in the spring, especially early in the season when you don’t want cold toes! These would all look so pretty with the denim I have shared below.

Plain Short-Sleeved Blouse

There are so many options for these in the spring! A plain blouse is perfect to pair with a trendier piece, like a patterned skirt or pants.

Jean Jacket

Jean jackets are very versatile in the spring. I love how they look paired over a maxi dress and with white or pink denim and heels!

Strappy Sandals

I am a shoe-lover through and through, but strappy sandals with a chunky heel are my favorite for spring. I found lots of colors and styles for you all!

Suede Jacket

A soft suede moto jacket is a perfect layering piece in the spring. I am also loving the less structured suede jacket linked below!

Striped Long-Sleeved Tee

This is one of those pieces everyone needs in their wardrobe, but especially for spring. I like wearing them with shorts and I wear more fitted ones with a flowy suede jacket, like the one above!

White or Pink Jeans

I am a big fan of wearing white before Memorial Day, but if you are hesitant to do so, try wearing light pink denim to freshen up your spring style.

Light, Neutral Handbag

A light, neutral handbag is a perfect accessory to freshen up any outfit in the spring! I got the grey handbag below and it has been very popular on my round up of Amazon designer dupes!

Floral Top

Because flowers and spring go hand in hand. Enough said.

Gingham Top

This is one of my all-time favorite pieces for spring. There is something timeless and classic about gingham and I think it looks good on everyone! 

Striped Tank

So many options for these in the spring! I love wearing mine under a jean jacket.

Paperbag Shorts

I love these trendy shorts paired with a more fitted tank, like the ones I shared above!

Slide-on Sandals

This style of sandal is back from last year, and I am loving it. For spring, I’ll wear mine with maxi dresses and cropped jeans.

 

Now, I need to know. What pieces are your favorite for spring?  What items would be in your spring style guide? Share with me what you are absolutely loving for this spring!

I would love to know if there is anything else you would add to my guide, too. If you enjoyed it, check out my latest style inspiration post with lots of adorable blush pink and grey pieces to spruce up your spring wardrobe. 

Cheers,

Sarah Camille

Four Faux Fur Vest Style Tips

Four Faux Fur Vest Style Tips - Lou Lou Boutiques Old Town Alexandria - SCsScoop.com

Hi friends! Fall is in full swing and the holidays are creeping up so fast. Frankly, it’s kinda scary how fast this year has gone by. Today, I am excited to be collaborating with Lou Lou Boutiques on a special post for y’all. I am sharing four faux fur style tips – say that five times fast! And, the faux fur vest I’m sporting is in Lou Lou Boutiques’ stores and online. Fur vests can be such a fun way to spice up an outfit and add some interest your look. The tips below will help you style a fur vest now, at Thanksgiving dinner, through the holidays and well into the winter season.

Faux Fur Vest Style Tips

#1 – Keep it simple. Pairing a simple dress with your vest will let it stand out. I also recommend choosing only one (or two at the most)

#2 – Pick a vest that accentuates your body. To keep you legs looking long, choose a vest that hits at your hips. On the flip side, if you have a short torso, try a vest that goes below your hips.

#3 – When in doubt, opt for all black or neutrals. If your fur vest has a lot of color variation or a fun texture and you’re feeling unsure how to style it, pair the vest with black pieces to create a chic look that is perfect for the holiday season. You can also never go wrong with pairing a fur vest with jeans and a white turtleneck.

#4 – Pair with chunky sweaters and cardigans. As the season gets colder, don’t be afraid to add layers under your vest. For the look I’m wearing, a chunky black sweater underneath the fur vest to make it warmer and winter-friendly. At the same time, my look would work just as well without the leather leggings I have on.

How to Transition Summer Dresses into the Fall

How to Style & Transition Summer Dresses into the Fall - Sarah Camille's Scoop - SCsScoop.com

Labor Day has passed and that means the unofficial start of fall has begun! And while it still feels very much like summer in Northern Virginia right now, fall fashion will be here in full force before we know it. You may be tempted to pack all your summer clothes away, but you can get much more out of your wardrobe when you keep a few summer items out as the seasons change. Some pieces clothes can be styled for fall weather more easily than others. One of my favorite summer pieces to wear into the fall are those pretty, bright floral dresses I love wearing all summer. They’re too fun to pack away just yet, so let’s dive into some tips on how to transition summer dresses into the fall!

Before we get into the tips, here is the dress styled for summer. I got this yellow floral dress because I loved the wrap style, length and sleeves. During the summer, I have worn this dress with the sleeves pushed up. I also paired the dress with light, neutral accessories.

Tips to Transition Summer Dresses into the Fall

As the weather gets colder, here are the two main things I will do to style and transition my summer dresses for fall:

  1. Switch lighter accessories for darker ones. This includes my jacket, purse and shoes. As you can see below, the pieces I switched out and the jacket I added are all darker. This helps make the whole look feel more appropriate for fall
  2. Opt for heavier or bulkier pieces. The purse and shoes I’m wearing for fall have a heavier more substantial appearance. This creates a more appropriate look for fall.

I chose a blue jean jacket and red purse to style for my fall look because they play off the colors in the dress. The thicker, heavier sandals I am wearing can also be switched for booties when the weather gets even colder.

There are similar dresses here and here.

Affordable Find Alert!!  The red bag I’m wearing is a dupe for the much more expensive Celine version. It is available on Amazon for 10% of the designer price tag. I was intrigued by all the good reviews and it has lived up to all of them!

I would love to hear how you transition summer dresses or other pieces into the fall. Do you have a similar floral dress from the summer you’ll wear into the fall? What are your favorite pieces to get you through the summer to fall transition? Let’s chat in the comments!

Cheers!
