Springtime Swag

I’m not sure what it is about the arrival of Spring, but it always makes me want to overhaul my closet and revamp my wardrobe. Perhaps it is something about all the new floral dresses and open toed sandals that is alluring.  I wish I could get my hands on every item that I see online, but my bank account would immediately be empty if that were the case. I’m going to refrain from doing a huge Spring shopping spree, but I did allow myself to buy a couple of things for the upcoming season.

New Stuff
1. Polka Dot Dress  When I saw this dress I knew it had to be mine.  I almost bought a dress similar to this online earlier in the year, only it was peach. I kicked myself when it became unavailable while still in my “shopping cart”.  I can’t wait to wear this when the weather starts to heat up! I’m always a sucker for polka dots and turquoise.
2. Chevron Lamp Shade I found this at Target for $13! I think it will be a fun addition to my living room decor.
3.  Like Crazy DVD I can’t wait to pop this in the DVD player this weekend.  It will be the perfect way to unwind after what I know will be a stressful weekend of apartment searching…
4. Nude Patent Wedges These are ladylike and comfy–a great combination in a shoe.  I’m eager to pair these with springy floral dresses and cropped pants. Plus, they were a steal at only $19.99! I got them in black, too.

With beautiful weather like we had yesterday–nearly 70 degrees, I can’t help but have Spring fashion on my mind. Unfortunately, I’ll be donning my boots and coats for a few weeks longer, but it’s always nice to “virtual shop” for spring clothes to wear later.  I already bought the red dress from Forever 21 last night and am hopeful that it will fit! Nine times out of ten, clothing from Forever 21 is either way too short or way too cheaply made, so fingers crossed!

Other items I would really love adding to my closet?? –the pink J.Crew blouse, yellow polka dotted undies from Madewell and the Sam Edelman leopard print sandals. Wishful thinking : )
