Last week was spring break and I wish I could say I spent it sipping fancy drinks on the beach, I instead spent it on the floor of my bathroom potty training my 2 year old. I just want to thank all of you who did travel, I did spend my time living vicariously through all of your lives while eating more than my fair share of Easter candy.
I did however get the closets thinned out (very much ignoring the soon to come snow), I zealously pulled out all of the sweaters and bulky coats taking up precious closet space. I also created a spring wardrobe wish list.
I don’t want to, nor am I in the position to, break the bank, but who doesn’t need a little color added to their closet. Here are some of the drool-worthy pieces I have my eye on to brighten up my closet and hopefully mom life. (I’m kidding, I wouldn’t trade it for anything…except maybe a beach vacation.)
Tops & Dresses
Express ruffle crop top
// This one I actually already splurged on and wore to date night last weekend. (see below). Everyone needs a little gingham in their life.
Leith ruched tank dress
// This was actually a Racheal recommendation and now I am obsessed. I have heard it fits a little tight so I will probably buy this one size bigger to be a little gracious to the mom-bod that I am working with. Ruched tops are going to be big, trust me.
White Distressed Skinny Leggings
// I love this destroyed style, it’s pretty much what my kids would have done to my jeans any way. White jeans just beg for warm weather.
// I love to layer jackets with both tops and dresses. They’re flattering and hit in all of the right spots. This is a good denim and the denim-on-denim look is growing on me.
Abercrombie Fitch mac coat
// This is the “extra” piece, and not under $100, but this one is too darling with is blush pink goodness. A good, practical splurge.
Express cheetah print loafer
// Add a little flare to your tee & jeans. Besides the fact that these are slip ons, I’m digging the cheetah so much.
For now I styled my gingham top this weekend with a jean jacket, distressed jeans, block heels and the peach tassel hoops. All ready for date night, making a long week so worth it. If you’re really into gingham, check out this post on all things gingham
