The first official day of spring is this weekend and I’m celebrating early by filling my wardrobe with easy, comfortable clothing and accessories. I’m a firm believer in treating yourself every once in a while, and I think these sunglasses are next on the list! They’ll look so cute with an all white ensemble, or as a statement piece with a simple outfit like this breezy blouse (under $100) and shorts. Neutral mules are my go-to during warm weather months because they make my legs look so long! I’ve looked everywhere for a great, affordable cuff and found this one for under $50, which I ordered earlier this week! This hat andtote will be perfect for the beach, pool, and farmers market. I’ve heard that this face oil works wonders, especially during spring when skin is prone to damage from the sun, allergens, and sweat.
Spring has begun early in South Carolina. With random 70 degree afternoons, I’ve already started bringing back pieces that I packed away during winter to the forefront of my closet. I try to incorporate old items with new, and some that will transition back to cold weather if need be. I’ve rounded up 5 Spring must-haves, many under $100!
The Basic Tee
Something I probably own too many of, but can’t get enough! Layered or worn on their own with a pretty bralette underneath, basic tees are my go-to for casual wear. I have this Treasure & Bond tee in white and wear it more than I’d like to admit because it’s so versatile! Here are a few other options:
Spring is the perfect excuse to invest in new lip colors. I gravitate towards pinks and light nudes as the weather warms up. My current obsession is NARS lip gloss in ‘Chelsea Girls’(Not actually what’s shown in photo) – it’s a gorgeous shade of nude that looks good with any outfit choice. Other favorites? MAC lipstick in ‘Modesty’, Dior fluid stick ‘Versatile’ and Trish McEvoy Lip/Cheek color (Two for one, yay!) in ‘Perfect Rose’:
Pretty New Kicks
There’s a particular kind of satisfaction in stepping into a brand new pair of spring shoes after wearing boots all winter long! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I fell in love all over again with this pair of mules I bought last year, and they’re back in stock (they come in black too) for under $100! A few more of my favorites:
Light, flowy blouses are such a staple because they look great with everything – tucked into a mini skirt, skinny jeans, or a great pair of cut-offs. I picked up this Anthropologie blouserecently. It’s so soft and I love the way it billows behind me when I walk.
The IT Bag
A new season means a new bag. I love this bucket bag with its gold details, and it’s on sale! For spring I like to incorporate a little bit more color, like this cute Michael Kors crossbody.
The Perfect Pair of Jeans
A great pair of jeans carries on into every season. This Topshop pair is a new favorite of mine. They’re high-waisted and super flattering. I’m also thinking about taking the plunge and finally investing into a great pair of shorts, like these.
Valentine’s Day is almost here! I can’t believe it. The ideal day for me will be dinner at home with my boyfriend, watching movies and possibly visiting our favorite coffee shop for a late night latte.
