Spring Style update

I live in one of the best climates in the world, it’s not too hot, not too cold, our humidity is tolerable and we’re not overly dry. But, over the last few years our winters have been mild at best, and very very short. This year we’ve had what most would call a normal winter, but, as we enter into March I’m left with the feeling of nothing to wear, and lusting after a few more pieces to round out my wardrobe and keep me solid for a few more months of what I’m hoping to be rather wet weather.

Last week I sat down and really thought about what might round out my wardrobe, I have a sufficient number of pants, work wise and jeans. What I’m lacking in are tops, a few flowy tops, skirts and dresses. In addition I need a new pair of booties, and I’m looking for them to be in the greige category. After a little bit of online shopping I’ve come up with the following “wants” that would really augment my wardrobe and hold me over until Spring really comes.

Tops

I am lacking in tops something fierce at the moment, I have a number of T-shirts, most that have moved into the “can’t wear out of the house” category, and I have 3 or 4 work tops/sweaters that I’m so so, SO very bored of wearing after 4 months in rotation. After looking at everything coming out for spring I’m in love! They’re flowy – have a very boho style and look like they’ve fallen into hippie heaven, even some that I found for work (the basic Henley) came in a variety of pastels that makes a winter girl’s heart sing.

If I had any gripe about the majority of these tops, it would be the amount of work to find appropriate undergarments not to show.

Pants, skirts and dresses

This is where I show more of a diversity with my style, pleated midi skirts, along site a paisley maxi skirt. A very polished jumpsuit, next to a Ponte dress, and can we talk about that gorgeous trench coat! I love that look top to bottom.

I’m not sure that all of these pieces would make it in to augment my wardrobe but they were definitely what called to me when I was trolling the internet.

Shoes

Lastly as mentioned I need a new pair of booties, and these fit the bill! Simple, grey, not to tall of a heel, that can be dressed down or up depending on what outfit I pair them with. And the pink sneakers you might ask? Who doesn’t love a great pair of sneakers for the weekend?
