Monday Mingle: Styling Denim Shorts for Spring

spring capsule wardrobe

I styled my denim shorts (a part of my capsule wardrobe) with easy pieces for spring. Yes, there’s a whole lot of denim in this outfit, but I think I managed to look both grown up and put together thanks to a few key accessories.

My white denim shorts are a warm weather staple and the perfect thing to wear for my first lobster roll of the season at Luke’s Lobster in DUMBO, Brooklyn, Luke’s is a Brooklyn Bridge Park treasure. It’s packed with juicy Maine lobster on a buttery roll. DELISH! And they let the lobster sing, There’s not heaps of mayo on it to mask inferior lobster.

That wasn’t the only treat. There is also a bag involved. For a Mother’s Day gift, I gave myself this new Rebecca Minkoff Feed Bag. I accessorized it with the Tassel Key Fob. The bag is buttery soft with a gorgeous pebbly texture. The silver studs make it edgy and cool. And the color is so sweet. I can’t wait to pair it with more things in my closet.

I was really happy with my purchase for about a day. But then I found out that our Creative Director had the same tassel that she found at Target for $5! Needless to say, I returned the $45. That seemed silly to pay so much more. Here they are side by side. Can you tell the difference?

Here’s one more little touch–adding some pins to my denim jacket. I found this bee pin at Banana Republic and added a onesie-earring. I saw an article in Redbook about adding lone earrings to a lapel. It’s fun way to give those earrings a new life and adding jewelry can be an easy way to become an expert at styling denim.
