Five Outfits For Spring 2013

Saturday, March 2, 2013
Happy 2nd day of March! I cannot believe it's already the third month of 2013. Things are happening so quickly and I'm so ready for things to change. I'm also really looking forward to updating my wardrobe for the upcoming season, it's probably my favorite one out of the year. Spring is all about rejuvenating yourself and your wardrobe. Adding pops of color, shortening skirt lengths, baring your toes, and much more. These five outfits are some of my inspiration for updating my own wardrobe. Here's hoping I can actually get some of these items. So tell me, what are you most looking forward to in Spring? I'd love to hear what you inspires you for this season!
 
 
1. Valentino Emerald Backless Dress | 2. Gold & Emerald Bangle Trio | 3. Believe It or Not Bag | 4. Elle Heeled Ballet | 5. Clive Christian 1872

Emerald is officially the color of the year! Makes me think of emerald stones, luscious lace, celebrating St. Patrick's Day, and much more. I don't often wear green, it doesn't really suit my skintone, but with this outfit I'd definitely be willing to take a risk. I think pairing it with a nude color flat is the perfect way to balance the whole color scheme out.
 
 1. With a Little Lock Bracelet | 2. Hollywood Thrills Sunglasses | 3. Zara Shopper Handbag | 4. Black Side Split Maxi | 5. London postcard T | 6. Steve Madden Sandal in Black/Tan

So I'm a little late on the whole maxi trend. Last summer while I was in New York, I took the chance and purchased a maxi dress and a maxi skirt. Wouldn't you know that they were the two most used clothing items I wore while I was living there. It's such a classic piece to have in your wardrobe, and can be very figure flatting for a curvier woman. I love pairing a basic tee with a maxi skirt, there's something so chic and simple about it. This London T from Gap is probably one of my must-haves for spring right now. It's so cute and would look really great with the skirt and sandals.
1. Aldo LEDEBUHR purse | 2. J.Crew Minnie Pant | 3. Lace Shoulder Shirt | 4. Black Pleated Mid-Heel | 5. Chanel Rouge Lipstick | 6. J.Crew Translucent Braclet | 7. Ponte Boyfriend Blazer

I've talked about Black & White before on my blog, just a few entries back actually, and I decided putting together an outfit would be just perfect for this. Again, this is a really figure flatting combo on any body type. I decided to make this look a little more professional, so pairing the sleeveless lace shirt with a blazer was just the ticket. I am ALL for adding a pop of color to any outfit, so I had throw in this J.Crew bracelet.

 1. The Mowden iPhone Case | 2.Beige Kettle Tassel Bag | 3. Embroidered Floral Collar Tee | 4. Faustine Spiked Loafer | 5. Andros Floral Bracelet | 6. James Jeans

I think we all know when you think of spring, you think of flowers. They're beginning to blossom and grow, and I think you can do that with your wardrobe to for this season. I love this outfit because it's so simple, yet it's actually really detail oriented. With the embroidered peter pan collar tee, the floral bracelet and even the iPhone case!
1. Pastel Tale Sign Bag | 2. Kate Spade Glass Pearl Necklace | 3. Edith London in Midnight Blue | 4. Happy Closed Strippy Sandals | 5. Having a Field Day Wallet

Blue is my favorite color and so putting this outfit together was super easy. I've seen these dresses over at ModCloth and thought I'd give a peek to the actual retailer because they are so flipping adorable. They're called Poppy Children and are based in Great Britain. I'm a big buff on all things England, and all of their dresses appeal to me because they feature the London skyline on the hem of most of the dresses they carry. Plus, they are inspired by the '50s which is a favorite decade of mine. I would wear this in a heartbeat!

Have a great weekend!

Always,
Mostly Lisa
