SPRING FASHION HAUL

spring fashion haul

spring fashion haul

Quality over Quantity.  That is my motto in 2015.  This year instead of racking up random pieces at Target and Forever 21 (not that I’m knocking cheap clothing, my love runs long and deep) I want to invest in pieces that are of higher quality and will last from season to season...Even if that means spending a bit more.  Prior to this new found mindset I found I would just buy to buy and wasn’t really in love with what I was wearing.  Studies have shown you only wear 20% of your wardrobe.  Now this may not be true for everyone, but I would say it probably is for me.  I find myself reaching for the same pieces over and over again and I’m trying to change that.  I also have a problem with never throwing anything away, but we’ll save that for another post… Delia’s jeans I will one day fit into you again!  So last weekend when I was meandering around the mall here in Tampa I fell in love with the spring launches in stores, did a little damage, and couldn’t wait to share the pieces I picked up with all of you.  I absolutely adore everything I purchased and think I will get a lot of wear out of each item.  I linked where you can purchase each piece below, and if you see anything you like hurry because they’re all currently still in stock! 

astr overlay romper
You know how they say girls dress for other girls?  I think that’s definitely true with rompers, but hey I love them.  One easy made outfit and I don’t have to worry about anything flying up and flashing my underwear to the world…count me in.  


zara flounce sleeve top

I love a crisp white shirt.  They go with everything, pair great with statement necklaces, and wear well season to season.  I especially loved the flutter sleeve and button detail on this one.


zara midi skirt
I am in love with this skirt.  I have been on the hunt for a midi skirt for so long because I think they’re great for work and when I tried this on I knew we were a match.  The pattern is beautiful and it just fit me so well.  Sometimes I have a hard time with midi skirts because they don’t sit right on my waist or accentuate my wide hips, but this fit like a dream.  And I find the wide waistband is also much more flattering when trying to conceal a little tummy.


The cut and fabric of this blouse is pretty basic, but what won me over was the color.  It is the most gorgeous periwinkle blue!  This will be perfect for work, or could easily be dressed up for going out to dinner.  And I also was so happy they had my size in the store, J.Crew tops run a little loose, so when I spotted they had a 00 I scooped it up!



I was so torn in Anthropologie over purchasing this.  I loved it, but had a hard time justifying spending $50 on a statement necklace.  What won me over was there was only one left and when I left the store I couldn’t stop thinking about it and just had to go back and snag it.  I think it’s so unique, well made, and in my opinion looks expensive.  (Always a plus.)

So that is everything!  I know I didn’t go toooo crazy but I just love everything I bought and wanted to share it with you guys. If you are interested in seeing more fashion related posts in the future please let me know in the comments below.  I hope you are having a great week and I’ll see you guys back on Friday!

And Oliver says hi too.  (This face means he's been getting into mischief.)

  3. Ohh love the romper! It's perfect for girls brunch except when I need to use the restroom. But that's never stopped me from wearing them. Great buys!
