My Spring Wardrobe Shopping List!



It might be pouring down rain outside, but my mind is wandering towards Spring and it's many offerings. 

With each new season there always a few new trends or colors that we can add to our already existing wardrobe to be a little more current.



I am pretty basic, classic/preppy in my style so I was very excited to see so many checks, stripes and nautical looks this year. Also lots of pinks and blues, which are a nice addition and colors I enjoy wearing.



SIDE NOTE: As I looked at all my current pins on my pinboards for fashion and interiors they all go together. Pinks, blues, stripes, checks. I guess I am pretty consistent and predictable!You can take a look at my most current pins here!

There are a few pieces that I have on my radar and would like to get that would make nice additions to my wardrobe.

I just purchased two new pairs of pants for spring....

These boyfriend jeans from Talbots fit so well and trust me that is an accomplishment since I find it hard to find pants that fit me will.


These ankle length pin striped pants in blue will be a real staple in my Spring/summer wardrobe.

I am also on the hunt for a cute denim skirt and found one that will work well for me.....


As you can see my choices are pretty basic and easy pieces to work with in my existing wardrobe.

 Boden always has cute skirts.

I have one other skirt that I have my eye on and when it goes on sale I most likely will get it....

I actually have tried this on and it fits me like a glove. 
See the cute sweater? I would love it in the yellow and they have it in pink too!





My list seems to be getting longer!?

Here is a go anywhere, dress-up, dress down , dress that would be a good staple for a Spring and Summer wardrobe.....



I am kind of in love with this cutie of a skirt! I can see it with a plain white t-shirt or a darling white blouse, fresh and crisp!


I have never been much for ruffles , however stripes, and checks are right up my alley and this top offers both! It also comes in pink, but I think that might be a bit too sweet for me since there are ruffles and checks.

CURRENT TRENDS

We all know that the off shoulder tops are back this season, however I don't feel they are appropriate for my age, or body type. However there are two other trends that I really do like and would wear.

Bell sleeves

Tie-sleeves

I don't know about the rest of you but I for one am super excited to see mules back in style.

I have several pairs in my wardrobe from the past and they are still on trend. Classics will always work.

The reason I am excited is I have an extremely narrow heel and find it very difficult to find shoes that fit me well, but mules seem to do the trick most of the time! Yay for me!!

I saw these on Erin's blog, Elements of Style and fell in love with them. This soft blush color can become a neutral in my wardrobe.

Espadrilles are always a classic for Spring and Summer.

As far as trends go I like some of them and wouldn't be caught dead in others, but I think you can see from my choices above I am pretty classic and lean towards what I like to call a grown up prepster style .

Here is a little shopping list of items that I personally am keeping in mind and thought you might like as well....

Bell sleeved blouse
Tie sleeve blouse
Check or striped pants
Wide leg or flared white jeans (I already have these)
Something in pink or blue
Cute and comfy pair of mules
A cute pair of tennies either a Ked, or a converse type style. Classic white Adidas are always a good choice too.

I am sure as the season gets closer I will find other things that I want, especially as summer hits and the temperatures rise!

I hope this gives you a little inspiration!!
What do you have on your radar for this season?

Hi Kathysue,
My goodness....you're making me want to get out my credit card! Lol
I love the checked-ruffled sleeveless blouse. I have such a hard time finding sleeveless tops that have smaller armhole openings. They are usually too big & expose my bra. I know younger girls don't seem to care but I do. I have a JCrew in town. I guess I should go try it on.
I have the same fit problem as you with most shoes. My heels walks out of them. So I love mules. Just have to keep my heels scrubbed & moisturized.
I was just thinking about needing some new shorts for the spring-summer. Last year when I went shopping, they were all too short! Maybe some cute skirts would be more appropriate. Thanks for the ideas!
Stay safe with your rainy weather. I've been hearing about it on the news. Awful!!
