Spring Shopping List
With the weather yesterday in NYC, you would swear we were in the middle of winter, but before we know it, spring will REALLY be here. That's why I'm working on my spring shopping list, so that I will be prepared when spring truly graces us with its presence.
So, here's what's on my list:
1) Crisp white shirt
|Stretch perfect shirt|
Not much to say about this. It's classic. It goes with everything- pants, skirts, jeans and shorts.
It should always be a staple in your wardrobe.
See a budget-friendly version here at Joe Fresh.
2) Gingham button down
|JCrew Perfect shirt in mini-gingham|
Cute, girly and sweet, but still professional enough that you can wear it to work.
I'll be paring mine with trousers and pencil skirts during the week and white jeans during the weekend. This would also look super cute with cut off shorts or bermudas depending on your preference when it comes to the length of your shorts.
3) Cropped Trousers
|JCrew Bennett chino|
I'm thinking of getting something like this in a basic color like navy and then another color that's a bit more fun. My office is pretty conservative, so I'm not sure I can get away with wearing this bright color there.
Maybe I should just wear them and stir things up a bit? ;)
4) Spring Scarf

Scarves are great when it's a tiny bit cooler outside than you thought it was going to be.
It's amazing how a little piece of fabric around your neck can warm you up.. and they're cute.
5) Brightly colored jeans/pants
|JCrew waverly chino|
|Zara Dyed Trousers with Zips|
6) Lightweight Jacket
|Joe Fresh Hooded Anorak|
7) A Touch of Neon
I'm not going to go crazy with this trend. I already embraced this trend whole-heartily the first time it appeared when I was in junior high (hope I'm not dating myself too much). At the same time, it is a lot of fun and makes me smile, so it will be just a touch of neon for me.
