Practical Spring Must Have Essentials You Need Right Now

With winter being over soon (that’s what I want to believe), it’s time to get excited about Spring. I don’t know about you but I am ALWAYS looking forward to spring as soon as January starts. I guess because at this point, I am so done with the freezing temperature. One thing that always gets me excited for spring (or any season really), is when I have to shop for key pieces to update my wardrobe. So if you’re looking to update your spring wardrobe, you’ve come to the right place. Today, I’m sharing fun yet practical spring must have essentials you need right now.

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!

Florals should be the first item 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 high waisted floral tie waist pants, floral box pleat high-low skirt, floral satin surplice maxi dress, and floral lace up shoulder ruffle blouse?

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 faux fur collar denim jacket, studded denim jacket, studded denim moto jacket, pearl denim jacket, and coral denim jacket 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. Since I got these shield espadrille wedge sandals and these lace up espadrille wedge sandals, I’ve been wearing them almost every day! They’re so comfortable and both under $35 only!!!

How sexy do these nude espadrille, blue coco snake espadrille, black with ruffles espadrille, and rose gold metallic 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 3-in-1 trench coat, soft drape trench coat, double-breasted trench coat, red trench coat, and blue double-breasted 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 don’t want to get your shoes ruined by the rain. Rain boots are available in neutral colors but wouldn’t it be fun to own a bright-colored pair? I do have a pair of pink Hunter Boots that I am so obsessed with, and I think every woman needs a fun pair of rain boots in their closet.

How fun are these pink croc embossed rain boots, yellow rain boots, black quilted rain boots, and red rain boots.

    I definitely agree that a denim jacket and trench coat are must haves for spring! I’ve been (very slowly) starting to bring out my spring wardrobe but we just got 8 inches of snow here the other day. Spring weather can’t come soon enough!


    • March 19, 2017 / 12:01 AM

      I can’t wait for spring too. We got a few inches of snow earlier this week too.

    YESSS to all of these! A brightly colored rain boot is such a staple even though most people think they won’t get a ton of wear out of them. Been eyeing a new denim jacket for Spring–loving these picks!


  20. March 16, 2017 / 10:41 AM

    I love that floral dress and the black ripped skinnies! So cute!

    Those are certainly cute looks. My hubby joked with me when I bought a jean jacket last month, he said it was out of style. Men, what do they know about their wives fashion choices lol

  40. March 16, 2017 / 4:24 PM

    I very much needed this!! haha I’m in such a rut when it comes to my wardrobe right now. I really need to get more creative and adventurous. I did buy a couple pairs of wedges recently though so that’s a start! haha

  41. March 16, 2017 / 4:57 PM

    I love that demin jackets and florals will pair well together. I am usually a solids person. I think the florals look feminine.

  42. Vukosavljevic Ana
    March 16, 2017 / 5:34 PM

    I agree, these are all must have fashion staples for Spring! I have everything except trench coat, I never found them pretty I dont know why 😀

  43. March 16, 2017 / 5:40 PM

    My fave spring staple is definitely the denim jacket! Pair it with a little black dress and red heels and you have a cute date night outfit!

  44. March 16, 2017 / 7:10 PM

    I have several of these pieces already. I also love maxi dresses for spring and stripes!

  45. Vanessa

    Cute picks! I’m really looking forward to getting my denim jacket out of storage!

  49. March 16, 2017 / 11:17 PM

    I love the florals that are coming out this spring! I need a pair of wedges, but I need a good pair that I can walk in because I walk like 5 miles a day!

    • March 19, 2017 / 4:04 PM

      Thank you! Espadrille wedges are always so comfortable. At least the ones that I used to own.

    Beautiful! I love floral prints..they make me feel very lively..I love all your outfits…very fresh.

  52. March 17, 2017 / 6:46 AM

    I need all of these things. I am loving the floral trend (and excited I have a few older shirts that are floral and fit right in). I do not have a denim jacket, and keep on thinking about buying one…

    • March 19, 2017 / 4:05 PM

      Thank you! You should definitely get one if you don’t have one; I’m sure you’ll get a lot of use out of it.

    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).

  55. Melissa Chapman
    March 17, 2017 / 11:20 AM

    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.

  56. March 17, 2017 / 12:14 PM

    Thanks for the fashion advice.

  60. March 17, 2017 / 8:18 PM

    You can never go wrong with florals. Many of these styles are classic spring styles and many are still in my closet from last season, but I want to go shopping for more.

    • March 19, 2017 / 4:08 PM

      I agree; florals are always so trendy! Thank you! I actually just did some spring shopping.

  61. March 18, 2017 / 4:12 PM

    A denim jacket is a must have for me. I have had mine for so long and I can’t live without it. I also really love wedge sandals, especially since you can wear them through summer.

  62. Rachel

    I love the trench coat looks! It looks amazing paired with casual! I only have one pair of rain boots, but after seeing all these I think I need a few different pairs in different colors! 😉

    • March 19, 2017 / 4:10 PM

      Thank you! That is so true! Rain boots are so much fun! I actually can’t decide what to get.

  64. March 20, 2017 / 6:52 AM

    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!

    • April 12, 2017 / 2:43 PM

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