Happy (almost) spring! To say I'm not eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring would be like saying I'm not fond of shopping at all :) Honestly, I used to shop in a very random and unprepared way, which would drive me (and my husband) crazy. I lacked direction. I couldn't make up my mind and I spent hours and hours trying to decide what to buy when we would shop. Creating a "wish list" has been incredibly helpful. It allows me to better visualize what I love and what will work in my life and my closet. For the most part, I now can pass on the things that don't fit my list with a lot less regret. I stray, however, if it's an unexpected, incredible treasure - case in point, I just scored a Burberry Brit scarf at a price far too good to pass up. I've been waiting for this large scarf/wrap for seven years (no joke)!
So, this is my general list (not exact labels) I'm searching for this spring. I love the pink and yellow pops of color. The white jeans will be my spring "uniform" and I love the fresh look of a striped skirt and striped shoes. I especially love these Payless striped shoes because spring in New England can be so unkind. I absolutely hate to ruin an expensive pair of shoes in the mud! Many of my everyday shoes in the spring are inexpensive. My more expensive shoes are "fair weather" shoes!
