Ready for Spring

I am so ready for Spring/Summer it is ridiculous. We have had temps as low as 7 degrees here and now that I have had my one snow day, I am over it. SO over it. As I patiently wait for the weather to break, I dream of the cute clothing I can wear. Here is what I am craving along with lots of sun and 70 degree temperatures.

Boyfriend Roll up Shorts from The Gap. $39.95. Tall sizes come in 4-16. 3 colors: navy, khaki and cactus. Unrolled, the tall inseam is 11″. I’m in need of some nice shorts; not ones that I have cut myself (I have a couple of those). Shorts that I can wear out on the weekends or to work if I wanted to.

Crochet Oxford Flats (wide width) from Torrid. up to size 13. $36.50. I have said before how I want some oxfords and these are some really cute ones. The crochet and lace and the cream color are nice feminine details.

Women’s Laced Oxford from Payless. up to size 12. $29.99 BOGO sale on now. A simpler version of the oxford. I love the rich cognac color. These would be great to wear with shorts, a flowy floral skirt or rolled up boyfriend jeans.

Blowfish ‘Demure’ Flat from Barefoot Tess. size 11-15. $49. 2 colors: Black and Turquoise. Another pair of shoes with the crochet detail. These have crochet overlay over sheer mesh. These would be nice and breathable shoes to wear when it really gets hot to allow your feet to get some air.

Women’s Jasmine Multi Strap wedge from Payless up to size 13. 34.99 in cognac and black. Wedge sandals are always popular in the warmer months and this spring/summer will not be an exception. I love the different shades of brown in this shoe, it adds a bit more visual interest. It is 4″ high with a 1″ platform.

Illusion Lace Crepe Dress from eShakti. up to size 6X; custom fit. $79.95 + $7.50 for any alterations. As soon as I saw this dress I wanted it. I love the sweetheart neck with the lace and the beautiful blue color. It can be worn casually with a sweater or denim jacket and some flats or dressed up with some tights and heels. This is definitely on my list.

Floral Bouquet Cotton pencil dress from eShakti. up to size 6X; custom fit. $59.95 + $7.50 for any alterations. This is another dress that I really want. I love floral print and it is great for the spring. When I get this I would make it short sleeve, scoop neck and below knee length. The best part is all those alterations only cost an extra $7.50! How amazing is that? I love how with eShakti you have the ability to make a dress exactly how YOU want it.

1969 Denim jacket from The Gap. Tall sized. S-XL. $69.95. I think I had a denim jacket on my list last year and I still haven’t gotten one. A denim jacket is great for casual days or weekend outings.

Women’s Boyfriend Cardi from Old Navy. Tall sized. S-XL. on sale for $28. In colors Briquette, Goodnight Nora and Clay Mate. Cardigans are great because you can throw them on when it’s a little chilly, especially in the morning, and then take them off when it gets warmer. A colored cardigan will also complement a well coordinated outfit. It is chic yet effortless.

ASOS Curve V-neck Swing Dress in Stripe Longer length. 51.85. Sizes 14-22. This would be a great easy, casual dress when you need to throw on something real quick without having to think too much about it. It is a nice flowy dress. Great for catching that nice warm breeze.

Women’s Oxford Shirt from Old Navy. Tall sized. S-XXL. 4 colors: blue, white, pink yellow. A nice button up shirt should be a staple in any woman’s wardrobe and not just for spring. You could wear a button up with some shorts or a maxi skirt or with a pair of skinny jeans. It goes great with everything.

Haylee Solid Maxi skirt Extended Length from Alloy. $22.90-$24.90. 3 colors: black, light coral, slate blue. XS-XXXL. I love the color of this skirt. I love the whole outfit the model is wearing. Perfect summer outfit.

Well that’s it for now. I’m sure there will be more as the weather continues to get warmer and the stores release new collections.
