Hey y’all! Hope you’re having a lovely week so far! I seriously can’t believe that this is the last week of March!?! Where did this month go? Even though it flew by, I’m really glad that Mother Nature is finally playing nice and temperatures are warming up! This time of year, I usually make the transition in my closet from winter to spring. With that being said, this is also the time of year that I stock up on a few new things for rotation! Retailers are busting at the seams with spring merchandise! By the way, if you’re looking to shop around for some Spring wardrobe essentials, make sure to check out the SPRING tab on my main menu! In this drop down menu, there are four categories of Spring goodies that are on-trend right now, yet versatile enough to take you well into the summer months! I’ve separated items into Dresses, Accessories, Tops & Bottoms, and Beach/Pool. Definitely make sure to check it out for some fresh swag! This post is about a few things that I’ve been crushing on that I recently ordered! I always try to be budget-friendly with my purchases and everything posted here is under $50!
So, let’s start with this bag. I was eyeing the Rebecca Minkoff Vanity Saddle Bag ,since it was on sale from $325 to $210. I’ve been searching for a while now for a grey bag to add to my accessory essentials. I didn’t really want to drop $200 on a bag, so I tried to find a bag that resembled the shape and size of it, without
pissing off my husband the price tag. I found this BP Foldover Crossbody at Nordstrom, and fell in love. It’s the perfect size (13″x9″) and I love the grey color with the tassel detail. Plus, it’s only $39! It also comes in cognac and black, so all your neutrals are covered. This bag will definitely be on repeat, and the grey will be a useful, universal summer bag color! It’s linked below and I also linked the splurge bag, too…cause it is a suchhhh a good deal and who doesn’t love Rebecca Minkoff.
Next, how cute is this one shoulder striped top?!?!? This top is also from BP at Nordstrom. If you haven’t noticed, BP is one of my favorite budget-friendly brands out there. AND Nordstrom ships for free and has the best return policy ever, so that’s always so nice, too! They make it easy for me to be a shopaholic…too easy. HA! Okay, so ruffles and shoulder details are ON FIRE this season. I just love how Spring brings out such feminine styles and I can’t get enough of this one! I’ll be wearing this top with white denim, or jean cutoffs. It’s an easy one to transition from day to night, also. It would be adorable even tucked in with a skirt for a dressier look! Best part is, it’s only $35. Sizes are selling out really fast though, so make sure to grab yours while you still can!
While we’re on the topic of tops, hehe, this red off-the-shoulder top is also from BP at Nordstrom. It gets so so so hot here in South Carolina, that
walking around naked a flowy, lightweight top is absolutely mandatory from here on out. This top is super cute and flirty, and much like the characteristics of the one I mentioned above, it is extremely versatile for day and night looks. It’s available in four colors: red, black, white, and black floral. It also has a really playful strappy criss cross in the back, which adds a really fun detail!
Next, are the “IT” earrings of the season: the Crispin Drops from Baublebar. They are a perfect statement earring to add some fun flare to your looks. I love the threaded detail and they are the perfect size. I’ve been trying to get my hands one the white ones for a while now, and as soon as they were back in stock, I ordered. I’m sad to report though, that they are already out of stock (again!) BUT, they are available in about 100 other colors and patterns, so make sure to check them out! I’ve linked a few of the available styles below and if you click on them, it will bring up the main page with the variety of available colors!
Lastly, are these fun, embellished Kay Slide Sandals from Target. I was back on forth on this style and then the Abby Sandal from (none other than) BP at Nordstrom. I finally decided on the ones from Target, because I liked the extra splash of color. This is a sandal that you can throw on with basics to complete your look and add some vibrant texture with a boho, cool vibe. I linked both below!
I definitely can’t wait to get these babies in and style them! I’ll be anxiously refreshing my UPS tracking until they’re here! (spoken like a true shopaholic!) Don’t forget to check out my SPRING SHOP drop down menu for other fun Spring picks! I hope you have a great week!
