Premature Spring Fever!

It's days like today that get me SO ecstatic for spring. Between the sun, the blue sky, the crisp air and that spring smell that peeks through the chilly end-of-winter breeze, it all gets me incredibly excited. And, despite the pastel and statement color trend, I always seem to get most excited about the "classic" spring essentials that you can count on being in style every spring.

1. The Colored Leather Jacket - After a while, I just get sick of black leather jackets. Thankfully, I can always count on a colored leather jacket, this year I'm scouting a pink-pastel leather jacket, or an rusty orange one, like this IRO jacket above.
2. Crochet Denim Shorts - I think this one goes without saying, but I'll say it any way: denim shorts are an essential for spring, to anyone. The crochet  is a nice little touch to spice up the old denim short/cotton tee/sandals look. (Topshop)
3. White Cotton Mini Dress - This essential has got to be my favorite. The white cotton dress looks good on all ages and embodies that spring/summer look we love. It's clean, crisp, and comes in all shapes and sizes. Each year I get a new one that has a different touch. Perhaps a little crochet, or some layering, or like this MIH Jeans dress, a nice collar.

Sleepy Saturdays

I'm not sure about you guys, but by the time the weekend rolls around, I'm exhausted, and fashion wise, completely out of ideas. So, when I'm about to fall asleep at 1 (PM...a little pathetic, I'll admit) I can usually find just enough energy to throw on something, get myself out of the house and to lunch with friends. In the winter I usually resort to patterned leggings, a chunky sweater and Doc Martens or combat boots, but as the weather changes, I find myself needing a bit of a change, as well.  Slouchy jeans, a white button-down or a denim shirt, and booties seem like a perfect go-to. Do you have a "go-to" outfit?

Reblogging: The Sartorialist/Michael Kors

Make a more elegant, beautiful skirt, Michael Kors, I dare you.
UGH, I'm in love.

Wishing: Black, White and Silver

Feeling like my spring wish list is a little out of season, but come on. That Topshop sequin dress is godly. So is that Nasty Gal skirt. As for the creepers, I'll always drool a bit when I see them. It's inevitable. The shorts are a must have for this spring, though it's nothing new. Last spring I was anti-lace/fabric shorts and lived in denim ones, but this spring I suppose I'll try something a little different. And wear some colors, too, considering I tend to live in neutrals and apparently, silver.
