As the days get longer, many of us find ourselves pining for a new seasonally-appropriate wardrobe. With warmer weather comes bare legs, lighter fabrics, and brighter colors. While it seems easiest to hit the mall and snag up everything in sight, we think you can add just one bright item to your current collection and have two fresh outfits for spring!

We’ve admired the J.Crew Linen City Mini for awhile now, but the skirt in Venetian Turquoise has officially stolen our hearts. During the day, play up the bright hue by adding even more color through your accessories. And skip the cardigan- we’re still on board with the idea of using a denim or chambray shirt instead.

Though the fabric is lightweight, you can easily make it appropriate for evening with a heavier patterned jacket and dark accents. The bright color of the skirt will pair well with gold accessories, and a nude shoe helps to keep the overall look feeling playful. All you need is a mojito and you’ll feel like spring has officially arrived!!
