Bloom Baby, Bloom! | Essentials: Spring

After winter comes spring! I don’t want to say finally because the weather in The Netherlands has kind of been tricking us. One moment the weather has been super sunny and the next moment it’s snowing. Like, make your mind up already… But now I think spring is here. ☀️ Because I am so ready for spring, here are some of the fashion essentials I have for this season!



Something that you can wear at any occasion is definitely a blazer. In winter I bought a velvet blazer, which I absolutely love. But for spring and summer I wanted something lightweight. That’s when I got a printed blazer. I am not really sure what type of print this is, but I have been tons of long checkered blazers and that’s what this print reminds me of. A blazer like this is so easy to wear with a blouse or tee, and even as a coatigan on warmer days.


With warmer and brighter weather from spring, you will see a lot more people wearing light colored jeans. A couple of years ago I loved wearing them and then all of a sudden, I started hating them. And now, you guessed it, I like wearing them again. I have to be honest, I am very particular when it comes to light colored jeans and I think these ones from Levi’s are my favorites (instead of the black and grey pairs I have).

Graphic tees never go out of style, am I right? I think everyone has a couple of graphic or logo tees in their closet. It’s just fun to have shirts with different prints on it, like bands, sayings or art work. In the photos you can see two of the shirts I own and love at the moment, but I also have the very well known Levi’s logo tees. The thing I like about graphic tees is that they just add that something extra to an outfit. Maybe you feel like wearing a simple pair of jeans with sneakers. When you throw on a graphic tee with that, it just makes the full look. That’s why you can never have enough of them in your wardrobe.



In my spring essentials post last year I actually mentioned pink colored items. This year I have been seeing a lot of pink colored items as well, but especially blush pink sneakers. A touch of pink is always great to have in an outfit. 🌸 I have been loving my blush pink sneakers because they are suede and very simple. Definitely a pair of shoes I will be wearing a ton this spring and summer season.


Something I have been very into lately are bags. When I was little I used to have so many and now I am very selective when it comes to bags. When I started seeing more round crossbody bags, I actually found one I liked. Mine is from leather but you also have them from rotan (which you can see here). I got a leather one because I want to be able to use it all year around and I feel the rotan ones are just for spring and summer, but I do really like them!

I think I can go on for ages when it comes to these essentials lists but then I end up just naming my favorite things to wear at the moment. That’s a whole other blog post. I bet you’ll see most of these items coming up in new blog posts because I am planning on taking some outfit photos as well. So look out for that! What are your spring essentials? Which of mine is your essentials as well?

    You really can’t go wrong with printed long blazer and light colored jeans. Those two are such a classic. Also, that Adidas sneaker is sooo cute!

      Thanks girl! Jaa ze zitten zo fijn 🙂 Sneakers zijn altijd echt een musthave. X

    Lovely picks! I’m definitely on board for all of them but my favourite trend is probably the rounded cross body bags, they look so chic and is a nice break from blocky structured square bags!
