On my radar 02.05

Spring is in the air in North Carolina and boy am I excited about it! Yesterday it was 65 degrees and I think everyone had a spring in their step after the cold days we had experienced recently! I for one am happy for a break from the heavy sweaters and jackets. In the spirit of the warm weather that’s here this week I thought I would round up a few pre-spring items I am loving! Is anyone else ready for warmer weather?

pre-spring favorites around the web

  1. PINK TIE FRONT DRESS | This dress comes in a few colors and it is so gorgeous! There are quite a few beautiful shades, but this pink would be great for Valentine’s Day if you plan on going out!
  2. COIN LAYERED NECKLACE | I am all about layered necklaces lately because they’re so easy! These necklaces from Madewell can be worn together or separately.
  3. PERSONALIZED PHONE CASE | How cute is this personalized phone case?! The personalization options are basically endless!
  4. STUDDED SANDALS | I ordered a pair of white studded sandals from Ash last year and wore them SO often. I love this version of the sandals for this spring.
  5. WOVEN CIRCLE BAG | I use my Clare Vivier circle bag all the time, but I love this bag by Kaanas because it has a closure!
  6. STRIPED BUTTON FRONT TOP | This is definitely a classic to have in your closet!
  7. MINT STATEMENT EARRINGS | How fun are these statement earrings from BaubleBar?! I love the light mint color for spring.
  8. PLEATED HIGH WAIST SHORTS | I am ready for shorts weather and these shorts are number one on my list! They come in four colors, too!
  9. RAY-BAN AVIATORS | I definitely don’t need another pair fo sunglasses, but if I did then these Ray-Ban sunglasses would be in my cart ASAP ha! I love the golden and light brown tones.
  10. DISTRESSED DENIM SHORTS | I discovered this pair of denim shorts recently and can’t wait to order them. I have a hard time finding denim shorts that I like (that aren’t short!) and these may fit the bill. I’ll report back 😉
  11. RAFFIA STRAPPY HEELS | All I can say about these sandals by Steven is OBSESSED! They would be great to wear all through spring and summer.
  12. PLEATED MAXI SKIRT | This is basically the skirt of my dreams! I haven’t ordered it quite yet, but I already have thought of at least five outfits around it haha! I think I need it now! It would be cute paired with a chambray top, a graphic tee, or even a crop top.
  13. TORTOISE RING MINIDRESS | This dress gives me ’90s vibes for some reason and I’m here for it! This comes in a few colors and I think this one is perfect for spring!
  14. LEVI’S STRAIGHT SKINNY JEANS | These button fly jeans are the perfect shade for spring. I love that they are simple and have a cuffed hem. I haven’t purchased Levi’s jeans (only shorts) but have heard people rave about them!
