I'm Sprung for Spring Fashion

Heeeellllooooooooooooo! It has been a while since I wrote a post. My man finally returned from deployment, and I am rejuvenated and refreshed and it's back to business. Let's get to it. I am sooo inspired by the spring fashion it's ridiculous. I pretty much want everything. Literally. The spring season is bringing awesome colors, funky prints, and unexpected details that make my toes curl. Like I said, I pretty much want all of it, but I'm going to display some fun and versatile pieces...that I'm craving for spring. OK starting with BCBGeneration....they have me wishing for cooler weather and sunny days with their line.

This dress is a fresh silver color, very fluid, and has a cute cut-out in the back that wraps slightly around the upper oblique area, and it's only $88. I cannot get enough of the orange and clear, silver cap-toes pumps to go along with this dress, they are only $89. I am a big mixer of metallic tones, so I have no problem mixing gold with silver or any other tones. So to add the finishing touches to this outfit I chose a resin bowed gold cuff for $39 and these art deco teal and gold danglers for $34. Seriously, I need this outfit!
Next up: some of my favs from Victoria's Secret. If I could I would paste the entire catalog to include their amazing shoe collection here, but that wouldn't be fair. So, here are my must-haves.
Below I have shown two adorable maxis in great eye-popping colors. The lemon colored is a little sassy with the lace overlay and the thigh high slit in the middle and goes for $108. The blue one is so my-style with the button up and collar details. I also love the attache belt to cinch the waist. The only thing I would change is the color, I would get it in teal. It goes for $88. You could pair either one of these dresses with some cute T-strap sandals. Victoria's Secret has about 100 styles and colors you can choose from, but the ones below run for $68.

For a little something less casual but still spring fresh I chose a fun and sophisticated yet relaxed look below. The yellow skirt is too cute and so versatile and goes for $59.50, the white tank keeps this outfit simple but it is not your traditional white tank. It goes for $48. Lastly, I chose a simple strapped shoe for $79, but you can add some flair by picking one of the colored versions shown below. Really, any of them would look fabulous, but I would probably go with the green and brown version.

 One of my favorite stores for nearly everything has not failed me for spring! Target has some super adorable and affordable pieces like the sheer printed blouse below and the zipper pencil skirt, both going for $22.99. If you are on a budget like me, you really need to check out Target's spring collection.

To pair with the outfit above, and with almost any other outfit you can imagine, are the amazing, unexpected, and oh so perfect Vince Camuto platforms below. They are #1 on my list of must haves. However, they are not budget friendly at $129, but I promise you can wear with almost everything. They are also sold at Dillards. I MUST HAVE THEM!
Finally, we move to one of mine and my man's favorite stores: Express. They really do have a lot of fun colors and prints in their collection this year. I am in love with their peplum tanks, and for only $24.90, why wouldn't I be? I actually have this in a seafoam green color that is to die for! These printed ankle pants are so cool and the black and white color scheme makes it easy to pair them with solid tops...or you can get funky and pair it with a print! They run for $69.90. To add a little quirk to this outfit or any outfit that is lacking in detail, throw on this creative old-school shoe string and bauble necklace. I think it is so cute and fun and different, especially at $24.90.

There are so many fun and affordable looks out for the spring season. I tried to keep most of the items on this blog under $100 so we can all look great and fresh on a budget. Explore the stores and find fun pieces that you can add to your wardrobe and keep your spring casually charming!


  1. Love it. And I love that you mention Target. I just about died when I found out about Prabal Gurung for Target. <3! Great post. :)

  2. Girl I know, I went and copped some of the black tie-up caged heels they had, and I almost bought one of their clutches...I should have, because my Target is sold out of them!

  3. Great post Jessica. Love the Mk flat sandals. A must have in several colors!
