This is the final part of my Essential Spring Pieces with Appleseed’s collaboration. This is a sponsored post but as usual, all opinions are my own.
If you caught my last two posts you saw that I styled the Classic Wool Blazer in navy with a buttercup tee and midi skirt for a cute, flirty, and chic look. If you missed it you can see it here. My second look (also here) was an elevated classic look with a pretty button-down and a pair of white chinos. Today I’m going to share my third and final look, which is my version of a chic and sporty spring look.
I’ll be honest I’m not a huge proponent of athleisure and sneakers. I know that’s an unpopular opinion, but It’s just not really my jam-unless, of course, I’m actually working out. I see lots of women pull this look off seamlessly but it’s not true to my style. However, I do appreciate a sporty look. Heels and skirts aren’t appropriate everywhere but a blazer like this lightweight wool blazer in a classic cut, always works to elevate even a laid back look.
My version of sporty-chic includes the Classic Wool Blazer of course, as my goal is to show this closet staple styled three ways. If you’ve been around a while you know I love a capsule and having versatile pieces you can mix and match are key.
I also added the Simply Stripes Long Sleeve Tee. I always include one or two of these for spring. This one gives off the perfect nautical vibe and it comes in 10 different colors and three different sizes- misses, petite, and womens. I’m wearing it in the petite version. I love the classic fit and the softness of the fabric. It’s 100% Cotton. I also really like the gateau neckline. There’s also a ¾ sleeve version you can see here. I plan on adding the red (Blaze/Cream) version to my spring wardrobe too.
I went with white chinos again as they are a great closet staple for spring too but this would’ve been just as good with my fave pair of denim too.
To up the sporty feel I added a cute pair of Sperrys- also from Appleseed that you can see here. These are a little dressier than a traditional tennis shoe but both would have been cute with this look.
This Sporty Chic Look could really be worn anywhere you’d like to elevate your casual style. And it is also a great look for a vacation when you’re exploring a new city.
I wore it to a waterside location last weekend and it was perfect for indoor lunch and later for a walk along the pier.
I’d love to hear what you think of elevating a sporty look with a blazer and feel free to leave any tips you have for making a sporty look chic too.
