We’ve had some unusually gorgeous days in Chicago already, and I’ve taken the occasion to put together my spring shopping list…you’ll note that *almost* all of these are under $100, or at least offer a lookalike for around that price-point. #BargainHunter.
You’ll also note lots of floral, gingham, and stripes. Not mad at it.
Pick 1: The Gingham Top.
Pick 2: The Pinstripe Blouse.
Love the flared sleeve of this sweet pink striped top ($39). So fresh for spring.
Pick 3: The Blush Mule.
No two ways about it: the mule is THE shoe for spring, friends (it’s been in for awhile…and the bow-topped mule is the latest and greatest twist on this trend). I shared these stunning Loeffler Randalls ($325) a week or two ago, but have since come across a few other beauts!
I also really like these Isa Tapias ($395). Love the scalloped detailing.
But, you can get the look for less with these ($79):
P.S. — For something even simpler/more minimalist, these Marais mules might be just the ticket ($245).
P.P.S. — If you’re not bought into the mule trend, but like the scalloped look, and don’t want to shell out $495 for the Chloe classic: Banana has some super cute scalloped ballet flats on offer for $98!
Pick 4: The Floral Blouse.
Pick 5: The Floral Mini.
I love this statement floral dress ($49) in chinoiserie blue.
Pick 6: The Denim Pump.
I snagged a pair of Sam Edelman Hazel pumps in a delicious burgundy velvet over the holidays and was surprised with the quality. I may have to double up with a second pair in their denim/mid-blue hue ($120 — more sizes here, too.)
Pick 7: The Floral Maxi.
I love literally everything about this boho floral Rebecca Taylor dress ($295) — the pattern, the volume, the length. I feel like I will wear it all spring long, first with my Sam Edelman lace-up flats, and then with my Hermes Oran slides.
Pick 8: The Basket Bag.
Dream pick would be one of these Mark Cross rattan bags ($2,095). Talk about #goals. I die. D.I.E.
Pick 9: The Strapless Top.
Pick 10: The Midi Skirt.
Can Vivetta do any wrong? No, no it can’t. I love the look of this midi skirt ($514). J. Crew has a super pretty eyelet midi skirt in the orchid blue/periwinkle with a similar flounce at the bottom ($118) that I’m eyeballing as an alternative. Or, if you like a longer length, I LOVE this gingham maxi skirt ($53!!!!) I would pair it with this kind of top (UPDATE: more sizes here, and you can get a gift card with purchase if you use the coupon code MARCH2017 now through March 2nd! Or, get the look for less with this Nordstrom $59 find.)
What’s on your shopping list for spring?
