My top picks for a spring wardrobe:
2 // Floral Dress. I’m in love with the easy fit of this LSF. Also love this (such a gorgeous and unexpected shade of blue!), this (reminiscent of Johanna Ortiz!), and this (a flattering cut on so many figures!) But mainly that LSF with simple leather slides…
3 // Statement Headband. Love this $29 J. Crew find for spring.
4 // Simple Slides. I’ve already blathered on and on about these chic ones from Margaux in the saddle brown leather — or, if you’re #extra, the hot pink satin.
5 // Printed Jumpsuit. Love this roomy pair by Ulla Johnson, this $98 find, and this style by Banjanan. If prints are too loud, this white eyelet or this simple belted style is darling, too. I love the idea of layering any of these over a voluminous white blouse during these transitional months and then going bare in summer. Excellent mom-on-the-go look, especially paired with those Margaux slides!
7 // Something Tie-Dye. I am loving the subtlety of this dress. I love the tie-dye trend paired with more feminine details to avoid an “acid wash 70s redux” vibe — think of pairing a tie-dye pastel with LSF’s floral scrunchies or ladylike flats.
9 // White Mules. Love love love these Stuart Weitzman mules in stark white with — well, everything — for spring. If you live in a warmer climate, also LOVE these open-toed Stauds which are SO on-trend for spring. Dig them in the animal prints, but the stark white is crazy chic, too. I love the idea of pairing either of these with mom jeans and a pastel sweater during these transition-to-warmth months, and then sporting them with floaty spring dresses.
10 // Fendi Shades. I can’t get these Fendi shades out of my head.
11 // Oversized Hair Clips. I just got my $3 pearl Amazon hair clip in the mail and I have to say — I love it. It’s about what you’d think it’d look like quality wise for the price but it nails the trend and I love the oversized lewk. (PSA: it took like two months for the clip to arrive…) These are similar in style if you can’t wait two months. Also love these and these.
12 // Statement Jeans. I am smitten with these Ulla Johnson jeans — the cut is interesting, the color on-point, and OH man I am itching to buy but in my current (7.5-month pregnant) state, I can’t order…!
13 // Wear Anywhere + Forever Dress. I love all of the trends and prints and all that jazz above, but two dresses that will stand the test of time, age, and countless situations: this eyelet wrap style (love it in that mid blue hue) and this pinstriped shirt dress. Equally appropriate toting children to school, attending a meeting, running after toddlers on a playground, grabbing a cocktail with a friend, dining with in-laws, etc, etc, etc.
P.P.S. More spring style (<<all under $100), my most recent Q+A (I’m working on another — keep the questions coming; you can always shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org!), and musings on living in NYC for a year.
