Spring Wardrobe Essentials

Spring Wardrobe Essentials BLOG Framed by Sarah

The transition from winter to spring can be one of the hardest on your wardrobe. I know it is for me. 

Some days it’s still cold, other days it starts off cool and ends up so warm I end up questioning my outfit decisions. It feels almost impossible to get dressed once and be comfortable all day. 

Here in North Texas, the last three weeks have brought snow and ice with temps in the teens (um, not my favorite) and warm sunny weather in the 80s. 

Seriously?! It’s no wonder figuring out what to wear in the morning takes a little extra time and effort. 

But spring brings many wonderful things, too. Longer days, buds on the trees, and flowers starting to bloom. 

We can survive the challenges of dressing for spring and bring some of that freshness and excitement into our wardrobes. 

The secret? 

Layers, of course!

It’s all about the layers.

These four types of layers are my go-tos as we head into spring.


If you’ve been around, you know I have a deep love for sweatshirts. Cozy, cute, inspirational – I love them all! 

Having a comfy sweatshirt that can go on top of anything is key. You might start your day wearing it and have to shed it by lunchtime when the day gets warmer, but you need to give yourself options. 

I love to match my t-shirts to my sweatshirts and always plan our T-Shirt Club tees around the sweatshirts in the shop

This Be Kind Bleached Sweatshirt is a perfect match for our High Maintenance Tee. And I love putting my The Mountains are Calling Sweatshirt on over my Grit and Grace Tee!

Cardigans are another of my go-to pieces for spring. When a sweatshirt isn’t appropriate, a cardigan is. 

For spring, you’ll want lightweight options. That thick, cozy cardigan you’ve been obsessed with all winter won’t serve you as well in the spring. 

Look for neutral colors that will pair well with several of your favorite tees. I know I’ll wear this camel waffle cardigan a LOT this spring. It looks so cute with the Dreamer Tee and goes just as well with our Grit and Grace Tee or anything black! And this gray striped cardigan looks great paired with this month’s Be You Tee!


No wardrobe is complete without a jean jacket! This classic transitions from winter to spring and from summer to fall. It’s the ultimate goes-with-everything layer – denim goes with literally every fabric and every color.


As we get further into spring and the weather is a little more consistent, kimonos become my staple layering piece! Wear them to add pops of color. With fun florals and tassels, kimonos bring in the colors and trends of spring!

Don’t forget your spring accessories!


We’ve talked a lot about layers. Now let’s talk about the perfect tote bag to contain those layers and everything else you need throughout the day! You know what I mean. That large “Mary Poppins bag that fits anything and everything you need to navigate this ever-changing season. The Ally Tote and the Perfect Tote are oversized so you can carry all the things.

Spring Footwear

Complete your layered look this spring with cute shoes. It’s not time for sandals… yet, but it is time to put those cute boots away. So, what should we wear? 

I love a little slide-on shoe for spring. You’ll see me rocking my cheetah Hey Dude shoes or my cute canvas Blowfish sneaker most of the time. When it’s time for something a little more sophisticated, I turn to a closed-toe wedge

With these spring essentials in your wardrobe, you’ll be ready to face whatever the weather brings… in style!
