What I’m Eyeing & Buying for Spring

Can you believe we’re in March?! I’m crossing my fingers that warmer weather is on the horizon! Today I wanted to share a roundup of items I have been eyeing and buying for spring! Some of these items are in my cart & some have already found their way into my closet… now it just needs to warm up so I can wear them! There are SO many good pieces in this roundup and many of them at under $100 (and a lot are way under that!) Anyone have any a warm weather vacation coming up? If so, lots of options for you here! P.S. Shopbop is having one of their big sales, so it’s the perfect time to stock up on items you’ll need for spring & summer! From now through March 9 you can get up to 25% off your purchase with code SPRING!

items I'm buying for spring 2020

  1. TIE FRONT MAXI DRESS | This dress comes in five colors and is such an easy dress to throw on & go!
  2. CAT EYE SUNGLASSES | These are only $25 and look so chic.
  3. STRIPE SHIRT DRESS | I can just imagine wearing this with sandals once it warms up!
  4. WOVEN BAG | I saw this bag and immediately added to cart! It’s by the same brand as my favorite hat, so I know the quality will be good!
  5. STUDDED SANDALS | You have probably seen these sandals everywhere & with good reason! They’re a great price and will go with everything!
  6. NAVY MIDI DRESS | I am currently obsessing over this dress – so lightweight and I love the button details.
  7. BOATER HAT | This is an updated version of my favorite hat!
  8. STRIPE OVERSIZED TOP | I can’t get enough of this oversized stripe top from Madewell. Would be great with white denim, shorts, or as a coverup!
  9. GOLD LINK BRACELET | well this gold link bracelet is the perfect addition to my other bracelets!
  10. GINGHAM HEADBAND | I love a good headband and this gingham one fits the bill.
  11. STRIPE LINEN TIE WAIST SHORTS | These shorts are darling & come in more stripe colors as well as solids!
  12. FLORAL PINTUCK MIDI DRESS | I got this dress in last week and am SO excited for the weather to warm up so I can wear it. I went up to a size 2 to accommodate my growing bump. It’s such a gorgeous dress!
  13. GOLD STUD EARRINGS | These would make the perfect everyday earring!
  14. LIGHT BLUE SWIMSUIT | This swimsuit top & bottom are so chic and I LOVE the color! This brand tends to run a bit small, so I typically size up!
  15. DENIM SHORTS | if you need a new pair of affordable denim shorts, grab these! I typically go up one size, FYI.
  16. CREAM TOP HANDLE BAG | This is a beautiful, affordable bag that would go with so much this spring.
  17. NAVY GRAPHIC TEE | I love a graphic tee! I took French in high school & thought this tee was so fun!
  18. LEOPARD SKIRT | *immediately adds to cart* I can already imagine 5 different ways to style this skirt!
  19. STRIPE SWIMSUIT | This is another swimsuit that is so fun! I love the classic stripes on this top & bottom.
  20. BLUE TRANSPORT TOTE | I really like my transport tote because it has so much room. Can you tell I’m loving this light blue color for spring?!
  21. WHITE FLORAL MIDI DRESS | I wore this dress for our gender reveal party and I got so many compliments! The colors and gorgeous and I like the sleeve and ruffle details.
  22. FLORAL MAXI DRESS | I got this in the mail recently and I can’t wait for it to warm up so I can wear it. It definitely fits a bit oversized, so be sure to go down a size or plan to wear with a belt! Free People always has such fun dresses.
  23. GREEN LINEN SHORTS | These are a great pair of shorts to have. They have so many colors and would be great dressed up or down.
  24. PLEATED MIDI SKIRT | Something tells me I’m going to be living in pleated skirts this spring (gimme all the stretchy waists!!) I love the bright colors in this one.
  25. TIERED RUFFLE MIDI DRESS | This dress has such cute details and comes in so many pretty colors.

  • 24 weeks with our baby boy🤰🏼💙 it’s crazy to think we get to meet him in just 16 weeks, it feels like this pregnancy has flown by! 👶🏻I feel grateful that I have had a healthy & happy pregnancy but, to be honest, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind of emotions. As a first time mom, I have these feelings of immense sadness as the last half of this pregnancy is going to be nothing like I had envisioned. There have been a lot of tears over the fact that many exciting moments can no longer be shared with those closest to us. I know others have it much, much worse but I’ve learned it’s ok to be sad & to feel these emotions. I’m upset that I am no longer able to have a baby shower to celebrate our first born, I’m sad I don’t get to hug our family and watch their faces as they see my growing bump. I’m upset that these last few months of just the two of us look completely different - more time spent in our house quarantined and less time having date nights at our favorite spots and doing the things we want before baby arrives. I mourn the fact that our families may not get to meet our baby boy in the hospital the way we always talked about. But with any situation, I have cried it out (a lot) and decided to take it one day at a time and to find joy in each day💙 And ya know what? There’s a lot of joy amidst the chaos. It brings me so much joy to feel his daily movement (and my heart nearly burst when Nick felt him kick for the first time).🥰I am overjoyed that we have such a strong support system near and far. I love that we get to spend more time at home spoiling our fur babies. I find solace knowing that there are so many pregnant mamas out there feeling these exact emotions & we share a common experience and bond! I am grateful for those that are on the front lines caring for everyone. I know we have the best doctors carrying us through this uncertain time. We are strong mamas and we will get through this! 💕 so, I challenge you to find the join in each day no matter your situation! #24weekspregnant #24weeks #pregnancy #2ndtrimester #stylethebump #bumpstyle #pregnant #pregnantduringcovid19 #pregnantblogger #thebump #boymom #expecting #expectingmom
