Spring Shopping Begins

As I mentioned yesterday, I’ve already started shopping for spring styles online and in stores, so I thought I would share with you what I have bought so far!

Forever 21:

I included this romper in my spring picks in this post and I talked about how it’s taken me a little while to jump onto the romper bandwagon.  However, I think with the right fit and color/pattern, they can look super stylish, so I picked up this one!  The price is hard to beat and I love the combination of gray and yellow, especially considering that my closet is lacking a lot of yellow pieces.


You can’t quite tell in this picture, but all of these little dots are stars.  You guys know how much I regretted not buying the last star-print dress that I saw on the Forever 21 website, so I made up for that by buying this one!  I mean, how perfect is this dress for me, seriously?!  It has stars and a pretty classic silhouette- both qualities are more than enough to convince me!


This is another item that I spotted online, but I hadn’t seen in stores until I visited my local Forever 21 back home.  I thought this print was just too adorable to pass up!


So I am finally ready to try the maxi trend.  I have seen many petite girls rocking them and there was a good article by Rachel Zoe in Glamour about how to wear the trend, so I’m excited!  I think this neutral one is a good place to start.


Even though the weather was quite warm when I bought this, I couldn’t leave behind this sweater on sale.  I love the creamy color and cable knit, it has the perfect slouchy/relaxed fit, and it’s so soft!


I couldn’t resist sharing this skirt again because I love it so much!  The color is perfect and the way it flows is dreamy.  Chelsea wrote a great post about transitioning pieces between the seasons and I can’t wait to wear this skirt and try her tip of wearing longer skirts in bright spring colors!

Last week, I got an email form Target that said that they were having a ‘Buy One- Get One 50%’ sale on shoes and purses, so I knew I had to take advantage of the sale!  I’ve seen wedges popping up everywhere and I’ve been obsessing over finding some new spring wedges, so I decided to purchase these two pairs.  With the discount and free shipping, my total cost ended up being around $42 which I thought was pretty awesome!  I think the first pair will be super versatile and once again I’m trying to branch out from only buying black shoes.  However, I couldn’t resist grabbing the Tawny Wedges, which I’ve loved ever since I saw them on Kenzie!

Tell me: What trends are you excited to try this spring?

    That bow-print skirt is ADOOORRRABLE! I'm kind of jealous because I can never find things that fit right at Forever21. (Or maybe I should say envious because I want to steal your skirt.)
