A couple of weeks ago, I gave you some of my favorite swimsuits that I have found so far this year. This week, I thought I would share some spring clothes I have purchased over the past week. As you all know, I love warm weather. I love spring time because of all the flowers that are starting to come out. However, spring is still pretty cold for the most part. Here in MS we have warm days here and there. March and April are still pretty cold for my taste, with the exception of some warm days. May is when things start to warm up here…especially mid May.
But, once March gets here I feel like summer is just around the corner.
During this time of year, I get swimsuit fever and the “fever” for some new spring and summer clothing. I am not the type that just goes shopping and buys lots of things at one time. I am too picky for that and can never find that many things that I like at one time.
Over the past week, I have ordered several items (at different times) that I have stumbled across. Also, I do have a pretty large wish list on Nordstrom. Nordstrom is my go to place. I can pretty much always find something there. However, I am also the type that likes to think in my mind…okay…”where am I going to wear this.” Spring – Fall for me usually means several vacations so I typically order things with vacation in mind. During the week I live in yoga pants. So, I just need some cute clothing for the weekends and for vacation. I am realistic and try to buy things that I am going to actually wear vs just sit in my closet.
I love white and cream sweaters. I found this adorable Oversized Fisherman Sweater at Forever 21. It has cute holes in it and I love the shorter sleeves on it. I think it is a perfect spring sweater. Also, we are planning a trip to Hawaii and I thought this would be a great sweater for cooler nights there. This particular sweater pairs well with jeans or a cute pair of denim cut offs. I can often find cute, affordable sweaters from Forever 21. This particular sweater is only $25. I mean, you cannot beat that.
Another place that I have recently found is Goodnight Macaroon. They have an awesome selection of sweaters and right now they have lots of their sweaters discounted. Some of my favorites from them include the Louise Crewneck Lightweight Sweater in Grey, Vikki Crop Chenille Eyelet Sweater in Cream, and Kayleigh Tassel Eyelet Sweater in pink.
Warm Weather Dresses
I love dresses for the spring and summer and even fall. I also try to buy several dresses that I can wear to church and out. However, there are some that I like to buy that are probably a little short for church. This year, my husband’s little sister is graduating high school. Therefore, I need a cute dress for that. Also, I need cute dresses for vacation.
I just bought this cute Textured Button Front Dress from Forever 21 in olive. Everything about this dress is great. I love the buttons down the entire front. You can button them all the way day or leave some at the bottom unbuttoned for a split. The color is also great. I love olive green. This dress will look great with a casual pair of heels or some cute flats.
There is something about summer that screams “white dresses” to me. I love a good white or cream dress for the summer. This Billabong Romance Ruffle Tier Maxi Dress is adorable and I think it is perfect for vacation. The Leith Ruched Body Con Dress is a great dress to either dress up or down. Then, in the fall you could add a cute jacket and boots. I love dresses that can be worn for multiple seasons.
I have a love hate relationship with body con dresses. Some of then can look super cheap and thin while others are great. I love the Roxy Happy New Way Body Con Mini Dress in Black.
You cannot go wrong with a pair of cut off denim shorts. I currently own a variety of styles of denim shorts. I have dark wash, light wash, and black. Denim shorts look great with a cute t-shirt as well as a body suit. Last summer I pretty much lived in denim shorts and bodysuits…and summer dresses.
Some of my favorite denim shorts this year include GRLFRND Dovima Distressed Denim Shorts, Levi’s 501 Cutoff Denim Shorts, Lucky Brand Cut Off Denim Shorts in Reyes, One Teaspoon Blue Cult Bonita High Waist Denim Shorts, and Free People Loving Good Vibrations Cutoffs.
Spring and Summer Sandals
Shoes are my weakness. My husband says I have too many shoes and each time I order a new pair I will say “do you like them.” His response, they look like some you already have!! I guess I really have a “style” and he has figured it out. Some of my favorite shoe brands include Chinese Laundry, Dolce Vita, Marc Fisher, and Steve Madden. I will occasionally find shoes by Nine West and a few others. However, the majority of my shoes are from these brands.
I just recently got in the Chinese Laundry Savana Sandals and they are AHH-mazing. The leather is a great neutral color and I love button details and cork block heel. Oh, and they are actually super comfy. I cannot wait to wear them with dresses and shorts. Another pair of shoes I’m loving this year are the Joy Heeled Sandal by Chinese Laundry. You can currently pre-order these. I love the black ones. Sometimes I am weird about heel color on sandals and so I love that this is black on black.
I love a good pair of heels in the summer, but I also love a good pair of flats. I’m loving the Kristin Cavallari Brea Ankle Wrap Sandals and the Steve Madden Dasha Strappy Slide Sandals. The clear strap on the Steve Madden sandals reminds me a little bit of some jelly shoes that I had as a kid, but I still love them.
Oh, and lastly I love a good pair of sneakers for the summer. Last year I wore my nude colored Dolce Vita sneakers all the time. This year I am obsessed Soludos Ibiza Classic Lace Up Sneakers.
Anyway, these are some of my spring clothes so far. I hope you enjoy!
