Spring Fever

I know I know. We are still deep in the throes of winter but I still get spring fever oh, pretty much as soon as Christmas is over! That’s too bad since I live in Maine but a girl can dream. And I’m anticipating warmer temps when I visit AL at the end of February so I’m just being extra prepared 😉

Speaking of spring, this year’s spring trends are oh so feminine. Blush shades. Ruffles, bows and pleats… I’m as girly as it comes and this tickles me pink! Having said that, I would be wearing peplums, flirty details and pink even if it wasn’t all the rage so if these trends don’t sing to you, be true to yourself. Classic silhouettes are always in. Stripes (which I also love) are showing up everywhere and are always a great option. I’m linking some of my favorite pieces so far – I loved so much more but I had to cut it off!

And if you like the trend but don’t put yourself in the girly category, know that there are some edgy pieces with just a slight nod to these trends. You might go that route and I’ve linked a few of those as well.

And just a note, I’m a list girl and when I see all of the new fun pieces cropping up, I shop my own closet first. For example, I have seen so many great white blouses with ruffles and bell sleeves and other sweet little details. But I honestly have that covered already so I’m trying my best to look away! Think about where you might have gaps in your wardrobe and use a critical eye when looking at new things.

I did make one new purchase last week. I had a gift card itching in my wallet and as soon as some of Anthropologie’s spring pieces were discounted I grabbed this top I’ve been eyeing. I love everything about it and it is just as cute in person as I hoped it would be. As soon as things warm up a bit, I’ll be wearing this with my Loft black cropped pants and some comfy flats.

And I’m absolutely in love with these wedge sandals. Saving my pennies starting right now for a pair of them. I want every color!!!

Here are a few items with links that really spoke to me!
