spring style wishlist on a budget

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.

_it's been a long week._


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
Madewell knot front t shirt // Madewell tee’s are my current fav and I love the tie knot trend going on here.
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.
ASOS High Waist Skinny Jeans // Light blue wash, high rise, and a tight cut through the leg for a sleek shape. Umm, yes please.
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.
Rose Gold Bar Necklace // I currently wear the heck out of this rose gold bar necklace.  It looks good layered with a rose gold choker and minimal studs.
Peach Tassel Hoop Earrings // these are a fun little pop of color.  I feel like they ask for compliments.
Denim jacket // 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.
Saks Fifth Avenue suede d orsay flat // I have been looking for a good cognac flat.  I’m all about the open sides and the small platform to these.  Such a good everyday shoe.
Open Toe Platform Wedge Heels // these are a fun date night wedge.
 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.
