Spring Staples

Hey girl hey! Hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday! I wanted to write a quick post to share some Spring staples that I am eyeing right now! I think these items are great transition pieces from Spring to Summer. Versatility is key for me, and the color palette this season is giving me all the heart eyes- mustard, navy, tomato red, and magenta are all saturated, rich hues that can be mixed together to make an exciting color palette for your wardrobe in the upcoming seasons. Anddd most everything is under $100, your wallet thanks me! Ha!

First, is the epitome of a flowy summer top from Free People. It’s called the Love Letter Tee and Belk has it on super sale right now for only $32 in navy and ivory. Reviews say that this top runs large (although it is designed to be flowy, but I’d recommend sizing down). I absolutely love the colors on the embroidery, especially in the navy. The bright orange, red and magenta would look gorgeous with white cutoff shorts for a casual day look and sleek white skinny jeans and espadrille wedges for a date night.

I’m obsessed with these tortoiseshell over-sized sunnies from Madewell. They’re called the Pacific Cat Eye Sunglasses and I love the understated cat eye shape. They’re only $65 and literally one of those styles that can be worn all day errrryday. Shop by clicking the pic below.

This beautiful Topshop mustard tie dress has the prettiest details. First off, mustard is all the buzz this season and I love pairing it with unlikely colors like turquoise and bright red to add a pop of extra color. I’m wearing it below with some bright red tassel earrings (similar here and here) and also added a leopard print tassel clutch. This dress comes in several colors and I’ll link them all below the picture! Also, there is a cutout detail in the front and down the center of the back (I wore a Free People bralette underneath, which is also in the collage it comes in seven colors and you can check it out here: bralette)

Several dress colors are on sale for only $39.99 (like the royal blue that I’m also eyeing!) Check them all out below!

Meet your new summer everyday bag: the Sole Society Aerin Canteen Crossbody. It’s hands down the perfect summer bag. The crossbody style is one of my favorites anyway, hands-free is the way to be and I love that it’s vegan leather. The details on the handle and snap add extra visual elements to make this bag look much more expensive than $50. It’s also available in a beautiful blush color. Another circle bag I’m eyeing this season is the BP. straw bag. This is perrrrrfect for vacay or just to bring a beachy vibe to any look. All 3 bags linked below!

This vivid asymmetrical peplum top is also a great summer transition top to wear now with a jean jacket or kimono and in the summer with shorts or skinnies. I love the bright tomato red color and the ruffle hem details. Also, it’s under $40! Love a good deal. I paired this top with 3 colors of tassel earrings that I consider spring/summer must-haves (especially the ombre red ones) that you can also shop below!

The two shoe styles I chose for this post are a casual heel option and a sandal that you can practically wear with everything under the sun. First, is the Claudia Sandal from Madewell in brown. I love the wood heel and the ankle strap- one of my favorite styles! They are also available in a bright red. Even though suede is normally considered a fall/winter textile, I think that these are perfect for every season. Next, the Steve Madden Greece Leather Sandals are the summer sandals you NEED in your life, and you can quote me on that! They come in 4 colors (white, blush, rose gold, and black) and are under $80! Quality is the key word for both of these, so even though they are a little more than I’d normally spend on shoes, I believe they are well worth the investment. To quote Carrie Bradshaw, “I like my money where I can see it, hanging in my closet.” Well, in this case, it’s on your feet but regardless…wise words from the queen of shoes, am I right!?! Shop below!

Another top that I’m dyingggg for is this BP. ruffle sleeve top from Nordstrom. I absolutely adore the embroidery detail on the ruffle sleeves and to me, it’s an adorably elevated basic tee! Under $40! Shop by clicking the pic below!

This Free People wrap dress is the bee’s knees, the cat’s meow, and dog’s pajamas (that’s one of those sayings too, right?!?…) You get the idea though! This dress is just good. I love this style for a cute, carefree, and flirty day look with sandals for a fun day date with your man or brunch with your girlfriends. It’s truly effortless and has the cutest details with the wrap and ruffles. Only $68! Shop by clicking the pic below!

Last but certainly not least, is this off-the-shoulder pink ruffle dress. This dress screams summer date night or girl’s night to me. I love the simplicity of it because you can “frost yourself” (movie reference moment that couldn’t be avoided) by dressing it up with colorful accessories! It’s essentially a blank canvas, and I love that you can create so many different looks depending on your plans/mood! Shop by clicking the pic below!
