Spring Items We Have our Eyes On

Instead of sharing an outfit post, we thought we would switch things up this Wednesday and share each of our spring “watch lists”. These are items we have our eye on for the upcoming warm weather and hope to eventually add to our closets.

It’s doubtful that we’ll add all of these items, but it’s always fun to look. Plus, we find when we make a specific list of items we need, we are far more likely to purchase with intention and not just buy to buy. flats-lace-up-cognac

Side note: We’re trying a new layout in today’s post so you’ll have to let us know if you like this format better or would rather the regular mood board instead. To get more details on each item, you can click on the item’s name, the picture OR the link within the description. Our hope is that this format is more straight forward and easier to navigate but again, you’ll have to let us know!

Striped Loft Dress

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2550015″]

When it starts to get warm out, I love wearing dresses to work. It’s just so easy to throw one on, add some jewelry, and head out the door! This striped dress from LOFT is adorable and would look super cute with some wedge heels for a workday.

Tortoiseshell Sunnies

I love my Ray Bans, but it’s fun to have a less expensive pair of sunnies to throw in your bag. These tortoiseshell ones are awesome. So glam and would go with any springy outfit! Plus you can’t beat that price!

Pajama Set

I don’t know about you, but when the temps get warmer I get sooooo hot at night. But I love being under the covers (there’s just something about the weight of the blankets that is just so comforting!). I have nice long-sleeved pajamas for the winter, but haven’t ever upgraded to a summer set. These ones are adorable and I think they just might be worth the money!

Gladiator Sandals

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554448″]

I feel like I need new sandals just about every year because my old ones get so beat up! I wear them until the very end of their life. I love these gladiator sandals and think I’d get a heck of a lot of use out of them over the next few months! They’ve got some stellar reviews, so they just might hop into my online shopping cart.

Off-the-Shoulder Striped Top

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554603″]

Ummm…yes please! Can’t you just picture this top with white jeans, wedges, and a tan? Absolutely love the classic look of this piece. A trip to J. Crew to try this baby on is definitely in my future.

Denim Shorts

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554576″]

After getting out my warmer clothing for the season, I chucked my old jean shorts. They were a DIY pair (here’s how you can make your own!), and had seen better days. Honestly, they were so frayed that I was nervous they were gonna unravel all the way up to my booty. Not cute. These high-waisted ones from Madewell look adorable and I think they would last for many seasons to come.

White & Gold Sneakers

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554515″]

I love my black Nikes for working out, but I need a shoe to just throw on for weekends. This rose gold sneaker fits the bill. Comfortable, neutral (so it goes with everything!), and a bit dressier than my typical gym shoes. These are a must!

Bridget

Tie Front Plaid Blouse

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554235″]

I don’t need much this spring, but I do have my eye out for some shirts. I always like to have a few go-to tops in my closet that I can mix & match with jeans, dress pants, or even shorts and I feel like this plaid number totally fits the ticket. I love that this blouse could work with converse and jean shorts or be dressed up with white jeans and wedges. I haven’t tried it on yet but I’ll keep you guys updated!

Sneakers

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554239″]

I have gym shoes that I love for an athleisure look and I also have go-to flats/heels for a more dressy look, but I’m in the market for an “in-between”, more casual look. I’ve seen this type of sneaker everywhere and they have really grown on me! Plus, I saw that this exact sneaker is made by Sperry so I’m now officially sold!

Cross-body Purse
[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554247″]

I have a few staple oversized bags that I love, but I have my eyes peeled for a simple + affordable satchel for the spring/summer. I’m loving this one because it’s $35 and can match with almost everything. Usually once I find the perfect satchel, I wear it with everything throughout the summer and only swap it for a clutch for special occasions. I may want something a tad lighter, but finding one that’s this shape and this price has been harder than I thought it would be!

Versatile Sandals

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554259″]

You know when you find a pair of sandals you love and eventually wear them so much that they become a raggedy mess… and belong in the garbage now? Well I did that with my all-time favorite Target sandals from over 3 years ago and sadly, just threw them away. They were so comfy and matched with everything so I never wanted to let them go… until I had to because they were such a hot mess. I’m hoping to find another, equally as comfortable, pair and this pair is on top of my list. For $16, worth a try right?

White Pants

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554263″]

Our friend Courtney raves about these white pants so we know they must be good! My little sister just bought them and she also says that they fit great and aren’t cheap/see-through like many other competitors. If these pants get the seal of approval from Courtney and Maggie (both admirable fashionistas!), I’m sold!

Two Toned Eye Glasses

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”2554264″]

I’m due for a new pair of eye glasses and I’m digging this two toned look! I know Warby Parker offers to send their customers 4 pairs of glasses to “test out” and decide on at home (genius!) but I think I’m going to go into the store. For me glasses are like jeans, I need to try them on in order to make sure they fit… online shopping just doesn’t work for me in this department.

P.S. There are some great sales happening right now if you’re doing some spring shopping!

SPRING SALES

  • LOFT: 40% off everything (these sales are the best!)
  • Express: 30% off dresses <– this one is adorable for Easter
  • West Elm: Their Now or Never Sale is currently happening…which means 20% off!
  • Crate & Barrel: Up to 20% off Outdoor

  • Erin

    yes i love warby parker! it’s always fun to try on different glasses but i do find a lot of their glasses are on the bigger side. but still their customer service is on point & the price is so reasonable!

    I’m on the hunt for white jeans too! i tried one on at the loft and couldn’t do it because it felt like it was see through! I have white ankle work pants, but would like jeans!

    and as for those sperry’s.. i have a similar color from vans, and they are ON POINT. so easy to wear with anything!

    • Good to know for Warby Parker! And we feel the exact same way about white jeans! The struggle is real. So hard to find ones that are tight all the way through the leg and not see through!

    • I just ordered some white jeans from J Crew on the advice of Casey from hisugarplum. Shopping for white jeans is hard! Almost as bad as bathing suit shopping!

    • Did you get the J.Crew toothpick ones she suggested? I have my eye on those! I tried on the Vince Camuto ones she likes, but didn’t love them because they’re a bit loose at the ankles.

    • Yes, although the toothpick name threw me for a loop….a toothpick I am not!? But every time I buy something “Cassie approved” I am always happy with it. I am waiting for them to arrive in the mail, and when I get my hands on them I will let you know!

    • Let us know how they fit! That was next on our list to try.

  • Trang

    It’s funny, I feel like I know you girls so well now that when I see these items that you have your eye on, I say, ‘that is so Bridget’ or ‘that is so Casey’. You definitely have style. I am still trying to figure out mine!

    • You are too kind Trang. We feel like we are still very much figuring it out!

  • Oh my gosh, great post, and as usual I found myself nodding in agreement with all of your choices, especially because I have had my eye on, or already own similar things on your list! Casey I was just in Loft yesterday and fell in love with a similar dress, but the one I am coveting is Lou & Grey and is a bit more casual. The fact that everything is 40% off makes it even more tempting! I also just bought some pajamas similar to the ones you like, and for the exact same reason, but mine were from Target, so very affordable. I love them, not only are they cute but they are so much cooler for sleeping in. Only issue is that they shrunk when I washed them so my advice there is to size up if you buy them! Bridget, I own a pair of similar gold tone slip on sneaks, I got them a few years ago at the Gap outlet for $12 and I have almost worn them out! They are so comfortable, easy to wear and go with everything! I have had my eye out for a replacement pair, so thanks for the tip! I almost bought a similar plaid tie-front top at Anthropologie yesterday. It was so cute! I left my wallet in the car on purpose which is the only reason I didn’t buy anything yesterday! All of the things you posted give me ?!

    • Kerri,
      I love Lou & Grey at LOFT! That material is always sooooo soft! But I agree, a bit casual for work. I think my mom is getting me those pajamas for my birthday, so I’ll definitely report back on them. They were pricey, but I figure I’ll wear them almost every single night. Hopefully they keep me cool at night!

      Thanks for your insights, Kerri!

  • Lucy

    personally, i prefer this format. i see the picture, then i see what you say. with mood boards, i have to scroll up and down to figure out what which item you’re talking about.

    • thank you for your input Lucy! It’s so helpful as we plan content moving forward. We agree…having to scroll up to view the mood board can sometimes be a huge pain!

  • I LOVE this shopping list idea for new seasons and do the same myself, although sticking with it is another story…I always seem to find a reason that I “need” a few more basic tanks/sweaters/tees, depending on the season! But I am trying!

    • We feel ya Diana! Always nice to get a few new things for the change of seasons!

  • Katie

    Those white jeans are currently at Nordstrom Rack online 44% off! Waiting for mine to arrive so I can try out too.

    • Nice! Thanks for the heads up Katie. I always forget to check Nordstrom Rack online.
