Well folks, last week marked the first of Spring. Ha! Yeah right. This is not the Spring I recall. Yes, I lived in Florida my whole life. Yes, I have enjoyed the non 90+ degree weather. But the Spring I recall does not include freezing temperatures in March. Exclamation point! (I mean, I grew up where the term Spring Break was coined– how would I know any better?!)
Case in point: 3 weekends ago the highs were in the 50’s, the birds were chirping, the heat was turned off and yes, I was dreaming of Spring Break. So I decided it was time to bring my plants outdoors and start my Spring gardening.
And then it snowed.
What a blow to my ego! Since then, I have somewhat forgiven March and now that Spring has officially offically begun I guess I can be a little more forgiving. I guess. In lieu of my anticipation for bare feet and sundresses, I have been doing a little more online (and inline) shopping than usual. Just kidding. It’s still as normal as ever.
Here are a few of my finds 🙂
I’ve been wanting some colored jeans since they made their appearance last season or was it the season before… Well, I scored these from jcrew at 60% off! I have a feeling these will become a SS (Spring/Summer) staple. They are so comfortable and so easy to mix and match!
Now look at these. I know?! You’re speechless. Have you ever seen so much sparkle? I grabbed these at a shoe sale at Nordstrom (#online, #freeshipping, #tookatotalof3minutes, #didnthavetothinktwice, #ilovehashtagging) but you can find them here. I haven’t quite decided how I will wear these. Since they make such a statement the rest of my outfit should be very simple or people may start asking me which way to the yellow brick road. Even though I would not mind being referenced as Judy Garland and I also seriously doubt the folks in Philly will think these are too much.
Lastly, I actually have no animal print in my wardrobe. Hard to believe, but I checked. I saw this top at shopellamadison.com and instantly loved it. I love the sheerness, the loosey-goosey-ness of it and it can easily transition to a beach top! (I love multi-tasking pieces)
Now, I am well aware that if I paired all three of these together, I would be a hot mess.
Here are a few other trends I am excited to try out…
1. Bold Stripes. Work! My closet is chalk full of these horizontal (or vertical… I need not discriminate) beauties.
2. Black and White color blocking. (possibly my favorite color combo)
3. Short Suits. I have shorts and I have blazers. I even have striped shorts and striped blazers!
And the last trend I am interested in…
4. Bermuda shorts. Perfect. I own these too.
That’s what’s so great about fashion everything that goes around comes around. What’s in your closet?
à tout à l’heure ~
