April Buys

After a beautiful Sunday that hit nearly 60 degrees, my spring game is feeling strong. I’m sure we will have a few more cold spells this month that will delay my off-the-shoulder dreams (I’m ready to scoop up that blue striped Mossimo number any day now), so in the meantime I’ve rounded up a few other pieces that will work for the unsteady April days ahead.

Over the weekend, I scored the floral workout leggings (seen above) from Old Navy after seeing a girl in my kickboxing class wearing them. I loved the print, and when she said that they were only $16, I knew where my next stop later that day would be. While at Old Navy, I spotted the field jacket (also seen above) and will definitely be returning for that piece. It will be ideal for the chilly mornings—or impending rain this week.

What is on your must-have list this month?

{Peplum||Dress||Chambray||Off-the-Shoulder||Striped Top}

What do peplums, a tie-front dress, chambray, an off-the-shoulder top, and stripes have in common? They should all be in your closet for spring. Don’t believe me? Just look at retailers like Old Navy, Banana Republic, and H&M this season. You’ll be seeing lots of these pieces. To be sure you’re stepping into spring in style, I’ve rounded up the best looks.

I can’t say enough good things about this chambray shirt from Mossimo at Target. What’s more, seeing the light and dark wash version side-by-side will have you buying two.

We all know that stripes are versatile, so I had to include not one but two pieces in the pattern. A simple striped top works alone or under a blazer for those chilly days (and we’ve been having a lot of them on the East Coast). With any luck warmer days should lie ahead, and this tie-front dress would be the perfect option for brunching or shopping. Of course, the pièce-de-résistance for me is a peplum. Something about that little detail on the bottom has me hooked. I could never own too many peplums (although my closet might disagree). And this darling black-and-white peplum has my name all over it!
