The weather is getting warm in New York so it’s time to post about my favorite outfit again. A white top with jeans is chic yet comfortable and can be worn anywhere. If it’s chilly, add a blazer or light coat. If it’s hot, switch out thee flats for sandals. It can go from work to walking the dog to out to dinner. Since everyone always asks me about my pearl drop earrings from Italy, I’ve picked out a few pairs that replicate the look. I’ve also included great new bags for spring and shoes, as well as beauty products to finish the look. It really is the perfect time for this perfect outfit.

My criteria for the white top is that it should preferably be cotton. Ivory silk blouses are a similar option but they look a bit more dressed up if that’s they look you want. The white top should have inset lace or interesting details that make it look special and also a bit romantic. I prefer one with buttons so it doesn’t look so prim but some people like it with a higher neckline. I’ve also tried to find options at different price points and with inclusive sizing so there is a white top option for everyone. Happy Spring!

This Alémais high-neck ramie blouse is the most romantic of the bunch and the one you should definitely buy before it sells out in your size. A similar but simpler style is this pintucked sandwashed-cotton blouse.

These Frame Le Sylvie high-rise slim-leg jeans also sell out often but they have a full size run available now. I need new jeans for spring and these are at the top of my list.

These praline-beige suede flats are the perfect pair of shoes for spring.

I always joke that buff/nude is my favorite non-color color. This brand new Celine Medium tabou in smooth calfskin bag is the perfect nude bag to lighten up your look for spring.

These 18-karat gold pearl hoop earrings are a splurge option but don’t worry, I have also included quite a few inexpensive options too.

These Round Sunglasses are a great deal at only $48.

I’ve really been loving the new Hermès Nail Polish since it debuted last year.I had a manicure with the Rose Coquille color last week and was pleasantly surprised that it lasted a full week. It’s expensive but if you do your own nails, it’s worth the splurge.

Pintucking is often found on my favorite white tops. I love this Isabel Marant Étoile collarless pintucked cotton-voile blouse but this Pintuck Swing Top looks exactly the same and is a third of the price.

I always think that dark denim like these Frame Le Sylvie high-rise slim-leg jeans are great if you are allowed to wear jeans to work.

These tan suede mules would look just as good with dresses as they would with jeans.

This contrast cross-body bag is $59.99 dupe for the Celine Medium Triomphe Bag in Textile and Natural Calfskin that is $3,400.

I can’t believe these Baroque Pearl Drop Earrings are only $16.64!

These round-frame tortoiseshell acetate sunglasses are a classic look that never go out of style.

I use all these Westman Atelier products and the Les Petites Clean Glow Trio I set is a great way to try them for spring.

This lace-trimmed pleated-cotton blouse is one of the higher neck options.

These high-rise straight-leg jeans are a great color for spring.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, Ann Taylor has the best designer inspired shoes including these suede ballet flats.

I always love the shade of tan of this small leather bucket bag. It perfectly complements the white top and jeans look.

I love the double pearls on these Mizuki 14-karat gold pearl earrings.

I’ve worn the same Celine sunglasses for years but I may have to upgrade to these faux-leather aviator metal sunglasses.

Spring is a great time to try new makeup and this Hermès silky blush powder in rose nuit.

This Weekend Max Mara white cotton blouse is made from breathable cotton with an elegant lace and chevron-pleated front.

These Wandler Carnation cropped mid-rise tapered jeans are another style that could take you from work to weekend.

Time to switch to shoes like these camel leather flats for spring.

This suede shoulder bag is amazingly only $59.99.

These pearl earrings were inspired by a pair worn by the Duchess of Cambridge. They are only $15 so you could get a pair for all the women you know.

You can never go wrong with a pair of aviator sunglasses.

I love Victoria Beckham Beauty and will be adding this Posh Lipstick in pose to my spring beauty routine.

This white cotton embroidered blouse is a steal at $59.99.

If you can’t give up your skinny jeans, try these curvy toothpick jeans.

These cream pointed-toe leather flats would also look as great with dresses as they would jeans.

This flap cross-body bag looks much more expensive than it’s price of $59.99.

Save on some of the pieces here so you can splurge on these chic 14-karat gold, pearl and diamond hoop earrings

Get these designer looking acetate frame sunglasses for just $29.99.

My other favorite shade of Hermes Nail Polish is Rose Porcelain.

This lace-trimmed gathered cotton-blend jacquard blouse is another elegant option. I like this oversized pintucked linen shirt if you’d prefer one that buttons up the front.

These medium-waist cropped slim-fit jeans are another great steal at $59.99.

If you’re not ready for real shoes, these Adidas Wales Bonner Japan leather-trimmed suede sneakers are a chic and comfy option.

This Khaite Etta suede bucket bag is a great new shape for spring.

These Baroque Pearl Earrings are a real steal at just $13.57.

Update your spring and summer look with these new acetate aviator sunglasses in tortoise shell. They’re currently 25% off right now.

I wear this Westman Atelier Squeaky Clean Lip Oil in Garçonne but I think the Chou Chou would be perfect for this spring outfit.
