While the snow is falling outside the window and blanketing my car and driveway, I am fantasizing about Spring. While I love wearing layers of clothes and sweaters, all of my recent purchases show Spring time is on my mind and the warmer weather that’s to come. While I have purchased more clothes (and shoes)than I have in a while, I’ve been trying to fill in gaps in my closet(mostly blouses). Here are my Spring clothing purchases from the past few weeks.
1Anorak Jacket- After looking through countless options online, I got lucky and found one on sale at a local boutique that was going out of business. The longer length makes this a great alternative to a cardigan for spring time and the light weight material makes this perfect for transition weather. I couldn’t find the exact one online ,but found some that are similar.
2.As soon as I saw this blouse on ChichWish I knew I needed to add it to my closet. One of the big trends continuing into spring are bell sleeves and ruffles. I love the detailing on the sleeve and the contrast against the blue and white stripes.
3.Since I’ve been loving mom jeans and high waisted jeans, I wanted to find a boxy cropped length top. This cropped shirt by Spiritual Gangster was another find from the botique that was closing. It isn’t too short and the boxy fit makes this perfect to throw on top of jeans and head out the door. I also love that this is a graphic tee since I have been wanting to add a few more to my closet. While I couldn’t find the exact one online, I did find some similar ones.
4.I have been on the hunt for a body suit, more specifically a henley style. While browsing the American Eagle website, I happened to find this and immediately ordered it. I love the deep v-neck and the ribbed fabric. I have a feeling this is going to get a lot of wear and plan on picking this up in white.
5.Lately I have been obsessed with blue, maybe because I’ve avoided this shade for a while(more specifically lighter shades).While shopping around downtown a few weekends I immediatly gravitated to this top since the shade caught my eye and noticed this also happened to be an off the shoulder top(even better!). I can’t wait for it to warm up so I can wear this. I found a few tops that are similar to this one
1.I ended up finding this while at the Free People store this weekend. While it’s on the website for full prince, I lucked out and found it on sale for $29.99 plus an extra 30% off! While it’s actually a tunic, I bought it to wear around this house as an alternative to a robe(working remotley has it’s perks).I love the floral print and the tie detailing on the sleeves.
2.Another Free People find, I have been looking for a mock neck tank top and I love the flowy fit of this.It has just a little bit of drape to and will look great with a bralette under it. I decided to go with the plum color (I own enough black and white tank tops)since it will give a pop of color to black jeans or have a great vibrant contrast with white jeans.
3.It wouldn’t be a haul without me featuring Old Navy shoes. I went in with the intentions to buy the mint colored loafers, however these white perferated moccasins just screamed warm sunny weather. If you can actually believe it, I own flats in every color except brown. These brown ballet flats were on sale for $9.99 plus an extra 30% off and knew I couldn’t leave the store without them.
4.How can you mention spring time without thinking of greenery and flowers. I ended up falling in love with the planters at Anthropologie store and had a hard time narrowing it down. Since the bf and I had discussed growing some fresh herbs , I knew these herb pots would be perfect . Since they are cement, they have some weight to them and I love the detailing on them. Now we just need to choose which herbs to plant. While at Anthro,this planter caught my eye when I saw it and was a steal at$14(especially for Anthropologie). I’m still deciding on where this planter is acutally going to go and what I’m going to put in it. I’m thinking of picking up this tree trunk planter or this pink ridged teracotta in the large size.
5.I had been eyeing this top on the Madewell website for a while. When I saw it at the store and tried it on I knew this was coming home with me even though this is a long sleeve version almost identical to a shirt I own already from Madewell. However since I love the print of it so much, I had to add this to my closet. While the shirt is light weight, it still manages to have some weight to it which makes it perfect for a cooler night or when it’s a little chilly out.
6.Because I don’t own enough short sleeve tops from Madewell , I ended up picking this up as well. I love the effortlessness of this top. I love the vertical stripes and I love the cut of this blouse especially the sleeves, which keep it from being your every day short sleeve button up blouse. The looseness of the top and light weight fabric make this perfect when the temperature starts to climb. I can’t wait to wear this with my white moccasins.
Now that my spring wardrobe has pretty much complete, the only thing left for me to buy are a pair (or 2)of sneakers ,possibly another pair of denim shorts and a dress for a wedding I’m going to this spring. I’m eyeing a few different dresses from the brand Show Me Your Mumu. I seriously want to buy everything on the website, so deciding on style of dress and print is going to be a tough choice.
Anyone else starting to buy clothes for Spring? What are you looking to add to your Spring wardrobe? Hope everyone had a good weekend and has a great Monday!
