Spring Must Haves

different ways to incorporate florals into your spring wardrobe - pants, dress, skirt - spring must have

The weather has been acting funny lately; temperatures keep dropping and rising; Daylight Saving Time has started last weekend; and although we did have a snow storm earlier in the week, spring will be officially starting next Monday. And what better way to kick off the new season by hitting the mall or the web (if you’re an online shopper like me) and shop for the season’s must haves to update your wardrobe. Before you do so, check out the spring must haves that I’ve rounded up below.

While I wish these commissions were enough to let me stay at home with my kids, they’re really for paying the fees to keep this site up and running. Thank you for your continued support!

I think this should be the first on your list. Since spring is all about colors, why not make it more fun by adding patterns such as florals in your closet? It could be anything – a floral dress, tops, pants, skirt, or maybe even a jumpsuit – anything that you feel comfortable with. If you’re not that adventurous when it comes to colors and patterns, you can always pair a floral top or pants with a neutral-colored piece of clothing to tone it down a bit just like what I did here.

How fun are these floral laser cut midi skirt, rose print leggings, floral print dress, floral embroidered mesh top, floral maxi dress, short-sleeved floral maxi dress, and floral print pleated skirt?

Denim Jacket

Denim jackets are a great addition to any closet, if you don’t have one yet (if you do, you can’t have too many of them), because they are timeless and versatile. You probably know by now that I love such clothing pieces; but who wouldn’t, right? I love how they work perfectly when worn with a basic tee and jeans; and especially adore the edgy look when worn with otherwise feminine skirts and dresses.

I’d love to have these studded cropped denim jacket, bird-embroidered denim jacket, eyelet layered denim jacket, collarless denim jacket, denim jacket with fur in my closet.

Wedge Espadrilles

Wedge espadrilles are one of my favorites because, other than the fact that they’re pretty, they are so comfortable too no matter how high the heels are. I had a couple of pairs that were my favorites (but I had to sell them to give closet space to my kids); they were both 5-inch high but my feet never hurt whenever I wore them. And they look great with everything too – shorts, jeans, dresses, and skirts.

How sexy do these espadrille with bow, lace-up espadrille, denim espadrille, and open-toe espadrille look? I used to have these black espadrilles from Aldo which I got for $30 which were always mistaken for a Gucci pair.

Trench Coat

Trench Coats, just like denim and leather jackets, are timeless and versatile which makes them a great investment in your closet. If you don’t have any, a neutral-colored one is a great way to start with because it will work great with whatever you pair it with. But don’t be afraid to take a risk and get a bright-colored one, it will definitely brighten up a gloomy rainy day.

How stylish are these pink ruffle lace trench coat, camel wool-cashmere trench coat, black mid-length trench coat, pink hooded trench coat, green drapey trench coat, and mauve lightweight trench coat?

Rain Boots

If you live in a place where it rains a lot, you’ll need a pair of rain boots! Yep, rain boots aren’t only for kids, they are for adults too; especially if you plan to let your kids play in the rain like I do so you can have fun with them as well. Rain boots are available in neutral colors but wouldn’t it be fun to own a bright-colored pair?

How fun are these bow-embellished rain boots, camouflage rain boots, purple rain boots, blue rain boots with red bow, yellow kitten-heeled rain boots, and red wedge rain boots.

  • Yes! I agree with all of these! Especially the trench coat one, since I live up north where there is lots of cold weather still during this season.

    These are all such great outfits and spring essentials. I really love the rain boots. I definitely need to get a cute pair this year. I wear them a lot when I play in the back yard with my dog (it’s a bit messy back there, so something I can spray off is totally necessary).

    I love your style and the choices you make. I must get those fashionable trenches and rain boots they were so funky and had great colors.

    I love all the florals appearing this spring. I also seriously need a good basic denim jacket (recommendations for a good one that won’t break the bank for a small framed girl???) and galoshes. Too fun!

    • Thank you! I’ve linked up some but I think Forever 21 has some that are less than $40. 🙂
