Hi everyone, it’s been a little bit since I’ve posted! I’ve had so much going on with group projects, exams, and plenty of assignments and quizzes!  Today I wanted to talk about some spring essentials for 2016, because I definitely have spring fever!  I’m so excited for warmer weather, and to be able to wear dresses and open shoes again!  I compiled a general list of necessities for the spring, so definitely let me know if you would like a more in depth list about fashion, beauty, or accessories!

  1. J Crew Trench Coat:  I think trench coats are perfect for spring, because they’re a lot lighter than winter jackets!  The weather in Michigan is still a bit chilly in the spring, and on some days a lighter jacket is definitely needed!  Plus, you can’t go wrong with a classic trench!
  2. J Crew Umbrella:  With spring comes rain, and a cute umbrella will make those rainy days a little brighter!  I love the umbrellas from J Crew, because they fold up to a little size that’s perfect for your handbag!
  3. Customizable Ray-Bans:  Spring is always my excuse to stock up on new summer clothes and essentials!  New sunglasses are a definite must, and you can create your perfect pair of Ray-Bans on the website!
  4. Kate Spade Handbag:  Kate Spade is my obsession, and the spring handbags are to die for!  I’m drawn to very neutral handbags, but I love how this one has the bit of pink right at the bottom!  Kate Spade also makes super cute handbags in pastel colors, and they are perfect for spring!
  5. Tory Burch Miller Sandal:  The best part of spring is breaking out the flip flops and open toed shoes!  These sandals from Tory Burch are absolutely adorable, and definitely a staple for your closet!  Plus, they’ll add a perfect pop of color to any outfit!
  6. J Crew Stripes:  Stripes are a necessity during all of the seasons, and I think they’re perfect for the spring!  They’re perfect for layering, or plain with a cute statement necklace!  I’m obsessed with the striped shirts from J Crew!
  7. Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo 208 Roman:  How beautiful is this color!?  Chanel released some new lip products, and the Rouge Coco Stylo is perfect for a sheer wash of color!  If I wear lipstick I always tend to go towards nudes, but I would definitely feel comfortable wearing this!
  8. Essie Fiji:  This is my all time favorite nail color!  It’s the perfect baby pink color, and it lasts exceptionally well!  During the spring and summer, I’m constantly wearing Fiji!
  9. Lilly Pulitzer Dress:  Nothing screams spring and summer more than a Lilly dress!  I love how flowy and comfortable they are, and they’re incredibly cute!  Nothing makes me happier than a new Lilly dress!
  10. Kendra Scott Earrings:  Kendra Scott earrings are absolutely gorgeous, and they are amazing quality! There are a ton of options in so many different colors and styles!  I think these amethyst earrings are absolutely perfect for the spring, and they’ll add the perfect touch to any outfit!
  11. Stella & Dot Statement Necklace:  You all know my obsession for Stella & Dot, and I fell in love with this necklace the moment I saw it!  The hint of turquoise is stunning, and it’s petite enough to pair with other necklaces or by itself!
  12. Diptyque Paris Baies Candle:  I cannot live without candles, and Diptyque makes exceptional ones!  They burn cleanly, and they smell absolutely incredible!  I’m definitely burning a lot of cozy scents right now for the winter, but I can’t wait to bring out the spring candles!

Spring is right around the corner, and I’m so excited!  I hope you enjoyed this post, and I’ll talk to you very soon!
