This is the year I started shopping smarter and building a sustainable wardrobe focused on timeless pieces and quality basics like the ones in my linen and leopard spring outfit. Here in Arizona, it’s already around 100 degrees during the day…definitely time to break out the linen! When I saw this linen blouse from Reformation, I immediately bought it. The tie-waist and hip-length add updated style elements making this wardrobe basic just different enough.
This crisp white, 100% linen shirt hits right at the waist, so you don’t need to tuck it in, which I love! I have a long torso, and it hits me perfectly. If you’re shorter waisted, you can easily tie it slightly higher. It’s a great fit and runs true to size (I’m wearing a small). I love how versatile this top is and can see myself wearing it with shorts and skirts throughout spring and summer.
I paired it with these pointed-toe, calf-hair leopard flats from Steve Madden, where they’re currently offering 40% off site-wide. These are adorable for adding a little pop in an otherwise neutral outfit. They’re very flat with no real arch support, so they won’t be an all-day shoe. But they’re super cute and perfect for office jobs, running errands, going on dates, or wearing to church.
I’m wearing slightly distressed Mother jeans from Nordstrom. The cutoff, step hem and holey knees add a little edge to these cropped skinnies. I have two pairs of jeans from Mother, and I went up one size in both.
And there you have it! This is one way I’ll be wearing linen and leopard this spring. Stay safe and well, friends, and thanks for stopping by.
