Must Have Springtime Essentials

This week, we are going to forgo our regularly scheduled Monday under 50 post and do something a little different! The other day, I was taking a flatlay of some cute spring clothes, jewelry and perfume and I thought “you know what, this would be a perfect blog post…why not talk about my favorite springtime essentials?!” Don’t get me wrong…I absolutely love winter but there’s something about spring that gets me really excited. Maybe it’s the fact that I can wear cute flowery patterned clothing, or that I can put on my favorite fresh smelling perfume. But I always get really excited when spring rolls around! Actually, the day after I post this, it will officially be spring! Woohoo!

This is the flatlay pic I was talking about…these Converse are making a comeback and I’m certainly not mad about it! I also love wearing a striped button down tucked into jeans (or tied in a knot at the front). But enough of my rambling…I’ll talk more about these pieces down below!

Fashion:

Blue and White Striped Button Downs

I love a cute blue and white striped button down for spring. I think they’re so effortless and comfy. Pair it with some white pants or ripped jeans…or you could even tuck it into a white denim skirt. It’s such a versatile piece that is great for both spring and summer.

Floral Dresses

I mean is there anything more springtime appropriate than a floral dress?! These are super easy to dress up or down…wear a pair of converse to dress it down or wear a pair of espadrille wedges to dress it up! (more on espadrille wedges in a minute…)

Denim Skirts

Denim skirts are also making a comeback…and you guessed it…I’m not mad about it! I used to wear them all the time back in elementary school. I prefer the more distressed denim skirts because they’re more casual. Pair it with a floral crop top or a simple white tee knotted at the front and you’ve got yourself a super cute and effortless outfit!

Duster Jackets

Duster jackets are somewhat new to me…I keep seeing them on Instagram and each time I do, I fall more in love with them! I need to go purchase a couple because I love how they look paired with some jeans and and a bodysuit! I mean look at the tropical patterned River Island one…all the heart eyes!!

Casual Sneakers

From left to right: Converse  //  Adidas  //  Steve Madden  //  Vans  //  Superga

There’s nothing I love more than a cute pair of sneakers…I’m kind of a sneaker junky. I wear them all the time (probably even when I shouldn’t). I have 3 out of the 5 pairs listed here and I think I am going to go ahead and get these metallic vans because…I mean just look at those babies!

Espadrille Wedges

From top to bottom and then right (lol): Steve Madden  //  Treasure & Bond  //  Missguided  //  Lulus

I used to wear these kind of wedges years ago. They sorta went out of style but now they’re back and I’m so excited. Just looking at these espadrille wedges reminds me of beach vacations and tropical cocktails. Wearing these will definitely put a spring in your step! (Sorry, I had to!)

Jewelry:

Gold Ring Sets

In the past, I’ve never been a huge fan of rings, but recently I’ve kind of been loving them. All of these options are affordable (but they aren’t too cheap, if you know what I mean). These would look amazing if you have a bit of a tan. Unfortunately, I’m as pasty as toothpaste right now but hopefully I’ll get a little color soon.

Tassel Earrings

From left to right: madewell  //  Baublebar  //  Topshop  //  Saks off 5th  //  Anthropologie

I think these are the cutest kind of earrings ever…especially when they’re in pastel colors!! These earrings add an element of fun to any outfit…if you’re wearing jeans and a white tee, throw a pair of these on and your outfit will instantly look cuter and more put together!

Perfume:

I honestly don’t know what kind of perfumes I love more…winter ones or spring/summer ones. I LOVE my YSL Black Opium perfume for winter but there’s something about Chanel Chance that just smells so good and makes me happy! (Is that wierd?!) All these perfumes listed above have definite strong floral notes…so if you don’t like floral perfumes then you might not like these. I usually wear Chanel Chance during the day and Miss Dior at night..in case you were wondering (lol).
