The Edit| Spring Fever| April 2016

 

It’s finally spring!!!! The only time you’ll see me more excited is when it’s finally summer! I am a complete warm weather girl. Put me on a boat, a beach or poolside and an adult beverage in my hand and I’ll not want for a thing. This month, I’m all about shedding my wintery blues and surrounding myself with bright hues and fresh scents. I’ve made it a point to get out of the house a little more (I’m such a hermit during the colder months!), start my planting (I’m an old soul and like to garden), ride my bike, and of course, shop! 

Sam Edelman Gere Tassle Sandal – Shoes make or break an outfit. You can be wearing something as basic as a white tee and cut offs and with the right shoe you’ll still turn heads. I prefer heels and wedges to flats, but they aren’t always practical for everyday so I’m always on the lookout for an eccentric sandal. A few others I think are adorable are these, these, these (love the softer color palette!) and these.
S’well Water Bottle – The cutest reusable water bottle ever! They have so many cute designs and colors to choose from and you can even customize them. Best part? They don’t sweat so you can feel comfortable throwing them it in your gym bag or purse knowing everything will stay dry.
Commodity Cocktail Kit – Ever bought a bottle of perfume just to wear it a couple times and hate it?  Well, not anymore. Insert the Commodity Cocktail Kit. For only $22.00, you can try them all (layering is encouraged) until you find your perfect scent (my favorites are Rain and Mimosa). This is genius! I mean, I know most companies offer a sample size you can purchase, but not a sample size of all of their scents. Commodity makes it so easy!
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Fiore– I’ve been using this for a couple of years now. I also have Beso (red) and Amore (deep plum). I love how bright the Fiore is for the warmer months! I usually stick to the Amore during the cooler months and am not a big fan of the Beso. It’s a gorgeous red, it’s just not a good shade on me. As far as stay all day, yes ma’am it does. These are very matte though, so make sure you add some gloss after its dried!
Kate Spade Winking Eyes Umbrella – Umbrellas are just one of those things we never think about. I typically don’t even worry with getting one out I just make a run for it! I might rethink my bee line towards shelter if I had a cute one like this, though.
Tory Burch Kerrington Wristlet and Vince Cross Body Bag– While I’m not a fan of clutches and wristlets, sometimes it’s just not practical to carry a large handbag. I learned my lesson the last few summers while boating. I keep my wallet, keys, and cell phone on me at all times, no matter where I am. Throwing those things into a beach bag can turn into a disaster as well (think sunscreen and tanning oil leaking), and I find it easier to put those important things in a wristlet or clutch before tossing into a bag or other boat compartment for a little added peace of mind.
Etro Fedora Hat– I love hats! I instantly feel a tad chicer when I wear one. When it comes time to hang up the wool floppy hat, then I know it’s time to pull out the cute fedoras and beach hats! I love the print on this one!
Vanessa Mooney Astrid Knotted Tassel Earrings – I have a thing for tassels, bright colors, and jewelry. Therefor, I have a thing for these earrings.
Stuart Weitzman Elixir Wedge– I love scouring the shoe departments and online each spring in search of a new wedge sandal that I can’t live without. These are those.
Free People Lace Bralette– These things are so comfy! I love wearing them under my button up shirts where they can peak through a tad. Keep these in mind when you’re shopping and going to pass on something thats a little too low cut for your comfort zone because a lace bralette is the perfect solution for that!
Kate Spade weekender– How freaking cute is this travel bag!?! I love the print and the bright colors! It’s also the perfect size to use as a carryon if you’ll be flying anytime soon. I use my weekender more than I do my suitcase, so for me it makes since to purchase that, but you can purchase the suitcase here if that’s what suits your needs more.
WHBM Sleeveless Blazer – I’m a huge fan of blazers. I consider them closet staples that every girl should have. I have a black one, an off-white one and a pink one and I wear the hell out of all three! What I didn’t have was a sleeveless one and let me tell you, when this arrived I gained a whole new outlook on the structured staple I’ve kept in my closet for years.
Spring Dresses- I’m such a sucker for a dress! Whether it be a cute little sundress such as the TULAROSA Annabel Dress  featured above or a maxi dress like this Splendid Stripe Maxi Dress , I tend to always gravitate toward dresses. I’ve linked a few of my favorites in the widget below.
