5 Things I'm Buying For Spring
Cold snap be damned, I'm ready for spring. Spring temps AND spring tops. I'm currently in the midst of a fairly serious pink phase, hunting down everything from pink shoes to pink trousers and handbags. And although at this point we know that florals for spring aren't groundbreaking, they still make me smile and brighten my mood!
(Valentine, if you're listening, I'm giving you permission to give me flowers and something pink this year. I only ask that you skip Hallmark and 1-800-Flowers to shop this post instead. XOXO!))
Floral Top | Earrings | Loafers | Bag | Bell Sleeve Blouse
I want to stock my spring wardrobe - from apparel to accessories - in fun, feminine colors, prints, and silhouettes. How adorbs is this statement sleeve trend that's still going strong? It's still chic to bare your shoulders, but literally adding some flare to your cuff or shoulder seam puts you right in the middle of this major fashion moment.
When you think about it, everything that is so trendy right now is so majorly girly and romantic! Androgyny is out (or least taking a step back) and full-blown femininity is in! Let's embrace it ladies!
Here are some more favorites for all five of my must-haves for spring 2017! Scroll through using the arrows to see all my picks in each category! You can click the images or the purple text to shop whatever strikes your fancy! :D
