7 pieces I’m recommending for Spring

I don’t know that I’ve ever been so happy for March to roll around! This year it felt a little bit sweeter, and here in Portland, we had unusually sunny weather all week. While we’re back to rain today, I’m in full on spring mode! There are so many great new things rolling in daily, and my list of “blog research” is growing 🙂

Today’s post is about the exciting new pieces I’m recommending for spring. Many of these items happen to be on my own list, like an anklet, jelly sandals and shirt dresses. Keep reading to see what I’ve found for you — hopefully you’ll find a little inspiration too!

P.S. We’ve had a little explosion of growth lately, so if you’re new around here and want to stay up to date on all things stylish and the bound-to-sell-out items we ALL need, then subscribe here and never miss a post! Also, my daughter Emily has been hard at work creating blog posts I think you’ll like. We added Em’s Picks to the website, check it out here.


#1 Jelly sandals

Valentino sandals

It sounds kind of funny (and reminds me of my kids’ jelly sandals when they were little), but this year I’ve seen several that I love! Several years ago, I bought these Valentinos and wore them ALL THE TIME! Well, now there are new cool ones for adults like these by Gucci, Tory Burch, and Stuart Weitzman. They’re all well-priced, and fun for every spring and summer outfit!



#2 Jewelry updates

As many of you might know, I’ve been wearing the same Poppy Finch and Bony Levy necklaces for over a year. The main reason is that they’re difficult to get on and off, so I just leave them on haha! I’ve also been lazy in the earrings department, and often go without. So … I’ve decided I need an update. First on the list is a dainty anklet, followed by a new link chain necklace. And I finally found some smaller everyday hoops I just love and am excited to share with you!



#3 Shirt dresses

J.Crew shirtdress | Similar sweater | Gucci bag

Maybe my favorite spring and summer go-to dress, shirt dresses are comfy, stylish and just plain easy. I recently purchased this J.Crew chambray dress and this striped one. Since I’m 5’1″, I went for the petite size. Pretty sure you’ll love these easy ones by Frank & Eileen.



#4 Totes

Since I plan on getting out a little more (safely, of course), I decided a fun new tote should be on the list! There are so many great ones, like this YSL that’s a little more polished (and my recent purchase), or this canvas version! Add a fun skinny scarf (like this) for the perfect finishing touch!



#5 Trench Coats

J.Crew trench, wearing petite size 4 | Levi’s, wearing size 26 | Prada shoes | ATM tee, wearing xs 

This is the jacket to own and I’m seeing it everywhere! It’s so versatile and the outfit combos are endless. I like a drapey trench, and this brand new one is similar to the Theory one I love, except for a fraction of the price. This style is also great, and it comes in petite sizing. See below for my picks!




#6 White denim

I typically get a new pair of white denim every year, because after months of wearing mine ALL THE TIME, they start getting a little dingy. I jut grabbed these Mother Rascal ones, and they’re comfy AND flattering. Check them out!



#7 Paige

Paige Abriana blouse | White denim

Paige is always a brand favorite, and some seasons look better than others. But right now Paige looks extra good!! I’m not only talking jeans, I’m talking everything from blouses, dresses, jumpsuits and a chino pant like this one. Check out this new dress, this new jumpsuit and this pretty blouse, and peruse the great selection at Nordstrom, Shopbop and Paige. I’m sure you’ll find something you like!
