3-in-1 Spring Outfits

So, with spring approaching I have been going through my closet and debating what items I’m looking forward to wearing! I’m ready for more pastels, that’s one thing I do know.

My go-to outfit right now is leggings! No, that’s not really an outfit, but it’s easy to make an outfit with. No, I don’t claim to be able to pull off leggings as pants, so I do always have my toosh covered by my top. You’re welcome. I just think leggings are quite versatile. This winter, I’ve been wearing them with sweaters, sweatshirts, tunics and jackets.

I was thinking about how I could pull some of my leggings into spring in order to make a few different types of outfits. I wear them around the house, to play dates, to dinner and, well the list goes on. I think they are great to wear with heels, boots or a flat.

I’m loving these chevron leggings from ShopSosie and even though they are a darker color, they can be paired with lighter items for spring! Lighter in color and fabric.

These three outfits use the leggings, but pull off completely different looks! I’m a jewelry girl so I always think jewelry and shoes tend to set the mood for your outfit as far as where you are wearing it to.

These are all looks I definitely plan to wear as we transition into spring! Are you as ready as I am for spring?

While on the topic of clothes, I wanted to mention that I recently tried the Tide Pods!

I’m a bit particular on washing most clothes, and Knox & Sloane’s clothes, but I’ve been using these with mine and Brent’s whites and I can definitely tell a difference! They seem to be getting cleaner and brighter, which is also important for spring and summer!

So many things I wash on delicate with special soaps, dry clean or hang to dry, but with whites I want to be able to machine was them and dry them. I’ve always done whites on warm water, sometimes hot, and I think the Tide Pods really worked well with this process. I didn’t have to fiddle with soap and any mess it may create. Using these, I also select the double rinse option on our washer, in order to be sure I’ve washed all of the detergent out.

Tide has stated that the Tide Pods get more stains out that SIX cups of a normal detergent would. (Based on stain removal performance of one pac of Tide Pods vs. 6 doses of the leading liquid bargain brand base variant in a standard top loading machine.) That kind of jumped out at me. Who wouldn’t want that? Also the 3-in-1 chamber cleans, brightens and fights stains. It’s the only 3-chamber unit dose on the market.

They are small and easy and hopefully they will keep brightening my whites so I can keep wearing them many different ways!

    I have some black leggings that are very versatile. I can wear them with sandals and a sundress for a summer look, with UGG boots and a sweater during the winter, and with sneakers when I exercise.

    Be very careful with the tide pods or any of those superconcentrated detergent. Kids mistake them for candy and will chew/try to eat them. If digested it can cause death or severe illness. If it gets in the eyes it can cause blindness. Of course if used properly and out of the reach of childern they work great. Just wanted to warn you and others incase!

      That was my exact thought as well. My wedding photographer's son got a hold of one and she caught him immediately but a small amount still got in his mouth and he ended up in the ICU at our local children's hospital. They are very dangerous.

    Jeans are my go to outfit, like most Moms! I dress them up with a loose blouse and heels, wear my tennis shoes and a jersey or do the 80's fold and rock some boots over them! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Because I'm 9 months pregnant right now, my go to items for any outfit are long tanks they go well with cardigans, under a jean shirt or under a dress to give me more coverage up top. I am also wearing black tights all th time. My camel colored flats I wear with everything.

  5. says

    I have some camisoles/tank tops that I wear. One way I wear them is with a shrug. I love to wear a black short shrug, zebra tank, and black capris with black or zebra sandals. I also wear tanks/camis under shirts that have shrunk in the dryer a little bit, or are cut too low. In the summers, I will wear them with a strapless bra and capris. I love them :) I sometimes sleep in them too- they are so comfy- I especially love the old navy ones and the lane bryant ones.

    One of my current faves is a fleece vest with my college logo embroidered on it. I can dress it up with dress pants or go casual with jeans. While it is for cooler weather, I can even match it with a three-quarter-length top too. Love it!

    My boot cut black yoga pants are so versatile – they are in a nice matte fabric that doesn't look like exercise wear. Sparkly top, heels and jewelry and it's dinner out; a blazer, shirt and boots and it's work; tennis shoes and a tee and I'm sporty. So versatile and comfortable!

    Black jeans and a white short sleeved knit top. Change up with boots, blazers and jewelery to dress up or down.

    My fave go-to pieces are white capri's. I live in south Florida and wear them all year, dressed up or down with tops, shoes and accessories.

    Love my black skirt. I can wear it all year long to church or just casually. Can dress it up for a date too.


  23. says

    The only thing in my closet that helps to make my normal outfits any different day to day is my shoes. I have casual, medium, and dress shoes that I can interchange to make my slacks outfits sort of different. I also use different jewelry to give off a different feel to the same clothing.

    I have a pair of soft, black slacks that are as comfy as sweats but look great dressed up or down.
    Thanks for the contest.
