What To Invest In For Spring?

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday was the first day of spring which means a glimmer of hope for all you Northerners still freezing your butts off. I hear there is a snow storm coming but at least there is hope in knowing it will be over soon and you can start to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Many of you are wondering what you should invest in for the upcoming season. Along with purchasing a bunch of trendy inexpensive items, I usually invest in 5 pieces that will be staples in my wardrobe. However, before I buy anything I always ask myself 3 questions…

-Is it too trendy?

-Can I wear it through out other seasons?

-Will I be able to pay my bills next month if I buy this?

With those thoughts in mind, here are my top 5 pieces that I believe will be staples in your wardrobe for Spring. Just make sure you won’t be emptying out your bank account when purchasing that new bag!

  1. The day to night handbag: For me an every day handbag is a cross body. I tote around a huge diaper bag all day long so you are not going to see me with two enormous bags. A cross body is hands free. Is there anything more appealing than the words hands free! Go with a neutral color that will work with a handful of colors like black, grey, beige or ivory. {Black Chloe bag, Louis Vuitton nude crossbody}
  2. A fabulous denim collection: This is a must. If there is one thing I love to buy it’s great fitting jeans. I have always seen a huge difference in the fit and style when I invest in higher end denim. They last longer and they fit better. To round out your denim collection you should buy these three styles: White boyfriend jeans, grey skinny jeans and high waisted flared dark denim. Denim never goes out of style so hold on to your jeans! {White boyfriend jeans, dark wide leg jeans, grey skinny jeans}
  3. Romantic blouses: One of the most prominent trends this spring is romantic tops and dresses. Ruffles, off the shoulder necklines, frills and lace were seen all over the runways. Blouses can be worn in many different ways. It is the perfect day to night top. Pair it during the day with some cute cut off denim shorts or dress it up at night for a fun dinner date with skinny jeans and a bold pump. Try to invest in 3-4 beautiful tops! {Navy bell sleeve top, white lace frilly blouse, floral blouse, blue off the shoulder}
  4. A sporty fun sneaker: I am constantly in sneakers. I always try to find new unique ways to dress up my sneaker look. Look for a pair with funky color combinations, interesting textures or bright prints. Try and find a pair that stands out. A pair that can change a drab look in to something more exciting. Perfect for mommies on the go! {High top nikes, white Supergas, Rachel Zoe trainers}
  5. The bomber jacket: You could easily go with a light leather jacket or a beautiful trench. A trench coat is perfect for the spring. But if you want to invest in one trendy piece for the spring, I would totally go for the bomber jacket. I love this trend and a bomber jacket is a piece that can be very versatile. If you choose one that is more neutral you can get a lot of use out of it. Obsessed with this one below that is reversible. {White bomber, neutral reversible bomber}

I hope this gives you all a jumpstart on your spring wardrobe. Enjoy and happy shopping.
