I really want to start focusing on classic, basic pieces that will be able to take me from season to season, year to year. I will be the first to admit I am a sucker (sometimes) for certain trends or fads-those are the purchases that I don't spend a ton of money on at all, knowing it is just a "this season" trend. Those are more of my fun purchases rather than investment purchases-the items that I want to keep in my closet for years to come.
Here are a few of my recent spring purchases-ones that I just couldn't resist! I noticed that I am drawn to pastels (I know...pastels for spring-crazy!) and cognac. Cognac anything is great year round in my book. I feel like it just fits in the fall, and in the summer the shade has more of a boho vibe, which I love!
I chatted about my makeup routine the other week, and how I recently added Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue. Still love it, still glad I purchased it. More often than not, in the warmer months I like to wear as little makeup as possible, so this will get used a ton in place of my foundation!
I also like to wear more nude shades on my lips. I have used Bare Minerals lipstick in the past and loved this shade (without trying it on first...yikes!). Express Yourself the perfect shade of nude/coral and I love it!
With losing weight, I don't want to spend a ton on jeans, not that I ever really spend a lot on them! Once I get to my goal weight I would like to treat myself to a really nice pair of jeans, but for now, I am perfectly happy with my Target jeggings! Adding a white pair for spring is a no brainer!
I've had the same brown wedges for years. I am talking since college. It was time for a new pair. I got these from Old Navy, but in brown! Can't wait to wear them!
I've already mentioned how much I love pastels for spring! This duster coat will be the perfect lightweight layering piece over jeans and a graphic tee or over a dress. Plus, it's under $30!
I am headed to LA at the end of the month and have been on the hunt for a white blazer to take with me. This one made the cut, and hopefully will get a lot of wear!
My shoes need a major overhaul and clean out, so these dressy wedges and fringe booties will be replacing a few pairs in my closet!
If you follow me on instagram, you saw that I purchased this denim jacket the other day. It is available online, but it is 50% off in store! It has the perfect amount of stretch to it and is super comfy! I never, in a million years thought that I would love acid wash again!
Lastly, who doesn't need another graphic tee, right?
What are you buying for spring?
