Spring Shopping List
It's officially spring - even if the weather hasn't quite caught up yet - and here's what I'm shopping for:
1. Spring Dresses
I generally live in dresses and skirts whenever it's warm enough, and I'm currently stalking all the new arrivals at Reformation. My striped shift dress by Petit Bateau is a perennial favorite, and this knit midi dress (with pockets!) was one of my favorite buys last year - shop a sustainable version here. Most of these dresses are perfect for spring with a leather jacket, perfect for summer without.
2. White Shoes
It's not like I avoid them all winter, but something about white shoes communicates the warm-weather confidence that you definitely won't be stepping in slush today. I'm wearing these retro-esque ankle boots whenever possible, September through May. Meanwhile, I've been waiting since November to wear these Sézane oxfords again, and these tasseled sneakers have been on my wishlist for at least a year.
Is there a more springy shoe? Nope. I have my eye on these Madewell mules in ivory.
7. Small Square Scarf
It feels particularly springy to wear a little scarf around your neck, in your hair, as a bracelet, or tied onto your bag. This bee bandana from J. Crew is my current favorite.
8. New Leggings
I know I just told you all about my favorite fitness gear, but there are two brands of leggings I'm itching to try. Outdoor Voices keeps releasing more styles and colors, but I think I'd keep it neutral with a pair of these in navy. The leggings at Girlfriend Collective have great reviews and they're made from recycled plastic water bottles - these ones would be my pick.
