Hooray! The sun is shining and it finally feels like spring outside which gets me thinking about bringing out my warm weather clothes.
I am known among some to ask the same question each fall and each spring over a glass of wine or maybe a mimosa if it’s brunch, “What are five clothing items that you want to buy this season?” It’s fun to hear the responses. It makes me update my list with items I may have overlooked.
Here are my five items that I want so far this spring:
One- White jeans
I know they are impractical, especially since my days are mostly filled with chasing after my three and five-year old, but I don’t care. They look great with a tan in summer.
I blame my mom for this one. She loves this look as well. In fact, when she shops for my girls each spring she always gets them a white pair of capris, shorts or cute sundress. Not that might be a tad bit more impractical, but hey, we love what we love.
Two- D ‘Orsay flats
These remind me of Audrey Hepburn.
They look classy without trying too hard. I can imagine wearing them with boyfriend jeans or a floral skirt paired with a crisp, white shirt.
Three- Canvas sneakers
I already found these last month at Old Navy in a slew of colors. I picked poppy to add some color to my neutral outfits (or white jeans!), but I might have to go back for the navy and mint green. For around $20, the price is right.
I must be on a canvas kick. These shoes look so comfortable for the mom-on-the-go, a frequent traveler who needs to slip them on and off quickly or bumming around on the weekend to run errands.
The options are positively endless. They come in every shade and print imaginable.
Five- Cropped Top
This one might a little too trendy and risky for me, but I am tentatively adding it to my list.
Paired with the right pants-high waisted and loose, it looks cool and modern.
Or with a skirt. The key to getting this one right is showing just a hint of skin.
I am still not completely convinced, but it’s worth trying on in the store at the very least. Maybe it’s more of a vacation top.
Thoughts? What are your five items this spring?
