How To: To achieve this casual, but classy look like Emily’s, take advantage of all the spring items that stores are displaying right now. A trench coat or light jacket can be worn to simply dress up an outfit or to serve its purpose as appropriate weather protection. A pair of these jeans can be worn cuffed, rolled up as capri pants and worn with boots, heels, or even sandals. Top it off with a pair of ballet flats in any kind of animal print. Lastly, wearing earrings like this Fashionista’s are a simple, yet beautiful way to make an outfit pop.
