Spring 2013 Lust List

Spring is hands down, my favorite season to dress for. Fall comes in at a preeetty close second (layers really are my bff, though I digress), but Spring for sure is the winner. So much color! Everything around us is blooming and coming to life again, and the color palette we now get to play with is endless.  Personally, as I have said before, I love color, but more in my accent pieces, as opposed to the main items. I don't know why particularly, I just find my comfort lays mostly in neutrals, with bright colors in hits, such as from my shoes, scarves, or jewels. I find also, that this is a much more versatile way to incorporate color into your wardrobe, because the same multi-colored vibrant scarf can be worn with 10+ outfits to transform them into something different, whereas if you have the same pattern in a blouse or skirt, the options (to me), feel a little more limited. And with every new season comes a few more staples to add to the arsenal, maybe that's another reason Spring gets me so excited, another reason to shop. Hmmm, I do think that's it! Here is my "Spring Lust List", with the coveted items I am either A) awaiting impatiently for, B) Recently purchased, or C) Have yet to find the perfect one. I'm currently having a serious love affair with art-deco-esque and colorful jewellery, and who better than my forever love Stella & Dot to give me endless options to choose from? No one better, in my oh so humble opinion. a32060cedb390fee0969531f287789ed

{The Items}

  1. Chambray Shirt- It would appear I am quite finicky about this one, so the hunt continues!

  2. Military Style Utility Jacket

  3. Jean Jacket - I may possibly be the last person in the world to get a jean jacket, though I have no idea why I have yet to.

  4. Polka Dot Dress - I only say Polka Dot because that's the pattern of the dress I purchased, but really a dress that has a versatile print, that can be worn multiple ways for work/fun/etc. Mainly I am in love with the silhouette of the dress, the skater style is fun, breezy, but can be just as professional when need be.

  5. Boyfriend Jeans - I <3 the GAP jeans. A store that I generally have to size down for? Always a winner in my books!

  6. Coral Maxi Skirt - Forever21! Under $20, and so cute.

  7. White Flowy Blouse - RW & Co. has awesome blouses for really great prices! This one was clearance minus 40%!

  8. Strappy Sandal Pumps (highlight those cankles!)

  9. Stella & Dot Olivia Bib necklace 

  10. Stella & Dot Serenity Stone Drops in Emerald

  11. Stella & Dot Palm Springs Scarf. Words won't even do it justice, this scarf is stunning.

  12. Stella & Dot Seychelles Chandeliers in Blue (they also come in a stunning pink/coral duo!)

While this may seem like a lot, all of these pieces can be utilized in numerous outfits, and can also take me straight through summer into Fall. Really, I'm being very economical and a brilliant shopper.
