Gotta Have it for Spring

Happy Monday all!

Since I’ve been home recuperating from gallbladder surgery (I’ll be back to work on Thursday), I have been scouring the web for Spring must haves. I picked the items below because I know I’ll get a lot of use throughout the Spring and Summer. I haven’t had a good Spring trench coat in years so that was high on my list. The maxi dress and ankle pants can be worn with blazers and colorful cardigans as the weather warms. The chevron skirt can’t be worn now with opaque tights and my faux leather jacket. As for the flats, who can resist a pair of yellow ones?! I often use yellow as a neutral in many of my outfits so they will get a lot of wear. I’ve been wanting sliver heels because they are a great substitute for white shoes (which don’t look so good on me! LOL).

What are some of your Spring must haves?

Have a great day!

    Love the maxi dress and coat. I have a black one but would love a tan/beige one.

      I love maxi dresses to death! If I could I would wear them everyday during the Summer!

    I happened to stubble on this particular post and wondered if you got any of the items. In particular I was wondering if items #1 & #6 worked for you? I bought #1 but IMO the design was poorly executed (the sizing was way off…too big….and the waist seemed too high). So sad about that one because I LOVED the material, pleats, and length. I’m still eyeing the trench peplum (#6) but was looking for reviews on it before I bought it.

    Thanks! BTW, LOVE your blog! 😉

      Hi! I got 1, 3 and 4. #1 I had tailored because it was too big on the top. It was just a minor fix to get it right. I expected an empire waist on the dress so I wasnt surprised by how high it was. I didnt get #6 because I finally got a denim jacket that I absolutely loved. I did get #3 but I returned them because the didnt fit right. I bought several pairs of #4. They are the best cropped pants Ive ever owned.

      Thank you so much for visiting my blog! Im glad you like it and please come again! 🙂
