Spring Peek

spring shopping, blazer, dorsay flats, scallop, sneakers, equipment, shopbop


Now that it’s finally March, you know what means? My budget starts over! :) No but really.. I have laid out a much stricter guideline for myself this year as I’m saving for some more important things like trips, long-term goals, and bigger purchases that I’m holding out for so I was excited that February was only 28 days :). I was pretty good until Spring clothes started coming out, but I decided given that it’s still -10 here to treat myself to some early Spring shopping. I’m also ecstatic to be heading to LA in 10 days (I have a countdown on our welcome board in apartment). I think the sunshine will be good for my skin and soul and I realized I needed to pick up a few things for the trip! These are some of my current favorites.

I’m loving the idea of sneakers & blazers with a tailored shirt underneath. It’s a very simple but classy look that I can’t wait to try when this blazer arrives. I realized I only have black and gray blazers, and although I did finally find the exact black, structured one I had been looking for during the Helmut Lang sale I wanted to pick up a pretty shade that I could use to soften a lot of my pieces coming out of winter. I’m also on the hunt for some upgraded flats! I might be hopping on the d’orsay train although I’m still not sure how these look on petites since I think a pointed toe flat typically wears better on a longer leg, but we’ll see! What are the spring trends and pieces you’re most excited to try out in the coming months?

I’m definitely loving everything off this list! My credit card is getting an exercise this month.

Mine is gonna get a twerk-out… haha. Loved seeing you tonight!

Love the muted, neutral palette of your spring choices. I’m hoping to add some stripes, floral, and maybe a few geometric prints to my spring wardrobe.

I’m with ya! This was my preliminary pass.. I will be getting bolder and brighter as it warms up I’m sure! :)
