easy spring neutrals

Sometimes I try to think about what my “style” can be described as — it’s kind of like the ‘Tell me about yourself’ question during a job interview, totally impossible to answer with any sincerity in the 10-15 words that you’re usually supposed to use.  But while I love to experiment, the ‘style’ that I gravitate to most often are easy, comfortable pieces that you can look great in without a ton of fuss.  I don’t usually mix patterns, I don’t layer seventeen items at once, I just (hopefully) put together simple, go-to outfits that are actually wearable in real life.

And this is absolutely one of those outfits.  Perfect for anything from a casual Sunday brunch to a day trip to the beach a little later in the spring or summer.  I love how espadrilles can beach-ify just about anything, and many thanks to Nine West for sending me this adorable pair!  They’re actually surprisingly lightweight and, extra surprisingly, really comfortable.  I took a major spill in platforms this weekend so I’m trying to be extra careful for a bit, but these are actually possible to walk in. 

I went to an event last week for Accessorize’s new Bleeker Street store and it was totally terrific — I picked out this bracelet (which sells for a whopping $10!) and a few other cute pieces that you’ll be seeing soon.  They basically had Forever 21 prices but a much better selection — I could have filled up a truck with all their cute little pieces!

Topshop top, gifted Nine West espadrilles, gifted Accessorize bracelet, BCBG bracelet, gifted Club Monaco shorts.

    I normally like nine west but I don’t really like those shoes. Maybe just a bit too chunky. But you look awesome as does the rest of the outfit.

    I’m so glad I found you through MTV Style, Katy! I think you have amazing style and that you def described it accurately, you’re very relatable. The espadrilles are adorable ( I just gave a pair to goodwill, so I feel entitled to replace them). And I’ll have to check out Accessorize next time I’m downtown!
    xo, Ashley

    Very cute! A flowing white blouse is always a great pick for spring – so easy to dress up and down!
