Fake Spring Shopping Spree

So today I did a little spring shopping... well, fake spring shopping. What the heck is that? It's when I get so excited for new season fashion trends and I go to my favorite online stores and create baskets but never checkout. I'm the type of the person that gets completely overwhelmed when shopping- as in I often leave empty handed from stores like Forever 21 because they're so unorganized and chaotic, I just can't. Do you feel the same way sometimes?

I'm so excited about spring... this was my first winter in Missouri and being a New England girl, the weather is just as cold but without a ton of snow. With the freezing Midwest temperatures, I can't help but daydream about spring and its nice weather and the cute new clothes it brings.

 I like to describe my style as girly-grunge-bohemianesque. Yes, I just made that up, but it's a reflection of my favorite mix of styles. I'm not a high heels kind of girl (or any heel for that matter) but still love feminine pieces mixed with combat boots, jeans, floral prints and maxi skirts. This spring for me is all about chambray, rompers and mixing prints. So here's a look at some of the items from my Spring 2015 wishlist, AKA my online baskets that sadly never made it to checkout!



1. Chambray. I've been lusting over chambray button downs since last year but never found one I was in love with or one that was in my size. I will purchase one this year because I love how versatile they are. They can be worn with woven shorts, dark wash jeans, skirts, everything!

2. Rompers. They're not a new spring trend, but I've lusted over rompers for a while now and just haven't ever purchased one. I'm definitely going to add a few to my wardrobe this spring/summer because they look so comfortable yet put together at the same time. Also, they're a one stop shop- no need to buy separates= saving money.

3. Utility jacket. I've been loving the masculine yet feminine vibe of the utility jacket for spring. It'll keep you warm but will look chic and will add a little grunge to any classic look.

4. Lace shorts. I'm not a fan of denim shorts. They just don't fit my thighs right and they're tight and not comfortable. I have one pair of woven shorts from last summer and fell in love with how comfortable they were. They basically make wearing pajama shorts in public acceptable, or at least that's how they feel. The lace just adds a little extra to them and I love how you can pair them with a basic top and they make you instantly dressier. How cute would they look with a chambray shirt? LOVE.

5. Lace Toms. I love Toms! I have a sparkly white pair that were my go-to all last spring and this fall. They're the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn! I'm usually in sandals in the spring/summer, so it's nice to have a comfy yet supportable shoe when it's too cold for sandals or if I'm going to be doing a lot of walking. I love the lace detailing and think they'd be perfect with woven shorts or jeggings.

And there you have it folks, the most popular items from my fake spring shopping spree. What are some of your most lusted spring fashion items? Let me know in the comments below!

  2. My favorite chambray is from Old Navy -- I actually have two, one in a medium denim wash and one in like a peachy/pink denim. Love them so much! And I want a utility jacket so bad! Definitely on the top of my list.
