Spring Fashion Wish List

Even though yesterday was the official first day of spring, it certainly did not feel like it in my neck of the woods.  However, knowing we are going to be in Hilton Head next month has me dreaming of the warm weather to come and the spring fashion that goes along with it.  I have been receiving a ton of emails lately with all sorts of shopping coupons and sales from my favorite stores, and let’s just say it’s been quite hard to resist!  I plan on doing some shopping while on vacation, but I hope to get a few new things to wear while I am down there as well.  The hard part is just deciding what to buy and what to leave behind.  Here are some of the spring fashion finds that have caught my eye lately while surfing the web:

Pinterest spring 2013 fashion

J. Crew Factory

Factory printed blouson tankdress

Factory printed blouson tankdress

(I can absolutely see myself going to dinner in Hilton Head wearing this simple dress.  It is lightweight and I love the stripes.  Pair with wedges, a clutch, bracelets, and you’re good to go!)

Factory washed silk tee

Factory washed silk tee

(This shirt’s unique golden yellow color stood out to me, and I can only imagine how comfortable the silk would be.  This is a piece that can be dressed up with a skirt or a pair of dress pants, or dressed down with the white shorts shown below and a pair of sandals.)

Factory stone and crystal flower bib necklace

Factory stone and crystal flower bib necklace

(This necklace was just too fun to pass up and it is actually really versatile with all the colors of the stones.  I would love it paired with the yellow top shown above!)

Factory 3'' chino short

Factory 3” chino short

(I need a new pair of white shorts and these look like the perfect length and I love the material.  I already have a similar pair in navy that I wear all the time in the summer.  Now that I am getting older, I find there is a fine line between short-shorts and just short enough shorts, and these ones are a good length for me.)

Factory stripe knit pocket blazer

Factory stripe knit pocket blazer

(I really want a casual blazer that I can throw on over any shirt to dress up the whole look a bit.  This blazer looks cute, comfortable, and versatile, plus I love stripes and this blazer has the perfect nautical feel for the warmer months.)

Factory Vero clutch

Factory Vero clutch

(I love this handbag for a pop of color to freshen up any outfit.  I am in the market for a cute clutch and this one would be perfect!)

Factory stone and dotted crystal link bracelet

Factory stone and dotted crystal link bracelet

(I think this bracelet would look great with a turquoise necklace I already own and that I wear all the time.  Since turquoise can be such a versatile color, I think I would get a lot of wear out of this bracelet as well.)

Factory Maryanne straw wedges

Factory Maryanne straw wedges

(Wedges are my favorite warm weather shoe since I can get both height and comfort all in one package.  I love a good nude pair that I can wear with everything and this is another example of a piece that I can dress down by wearing with shorts, or I could easily dress up with a skirt.)

Banana Republic

Non-Iron Chambray Sleeveless Shirt

Non-Iron Chambray Sleeveless Shirt

(I am obsessed with my long sleeve chambray shirt I purchased in the fall and I think this piece could be really versatile as well.  I have a polka dot pencil skirt from J. Crew that I think would look great with it, especially considering how cute the polka dot pants look paired with the shirt in the photo above.)

Silk tie-front blouse

Silk tie-front blouse

(How cute is the tie-front on this blouse?  Again, it’s another piece I can dress up or down.)

Tile Stretch Bracelet

Tile Stretch Bracelet

(I am in love with all of the oranges and corals for the spring and summer and would really like to see it paired with the blouse above with the sleeves rolled-up to show off the bracelet.)

Carlie pointed toe flat

Carlie pointed toe flat

(I have never owned a pointed toe flat, but I think this one in yellow could be really fun for both the office and play.)

Francesca’s Collection

St. Augustine Dress

St. Augustine Dress

(The back of this dress is what sold me!  I am also loving the lavender color and the light material.  The whole look just just screams spring!)

Belle Haven Eyelet Tank

Belle Haven Eyelet Tank

(I saw eyelet tanks at almost every store I looked at, but I really like this one because of the zipper up the back.

I really appreciated the white shirt paired with the mint green necklace as well; love that color combo.)

Sunglass Hut

Ray-Ban RB3026 AVIATOR

(I am in desperate need for a new pair of sunglasses, and I love these…

Ray-Ban RB4165

…and these!  Which pair do you like better?)

  1. I love me some J. Crew! Great pics 🙂

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Oh me too! If I could only shop at one clothing store for the rest of my life, it would be J. Crew! 🙂

  2. I love the blazer and the clutch! I’m going on vacation soon, and I went shopping last weekend. It’s always fun to wear new clothes on vacation!

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Ahh I hope you got some good things for your trip! I agree, wearing clothes while on vacation always makes the trip that much better… 🙂 It’s always fun to put on a few new things!

  3. I love everything! I think we probably have a similar style. 😉 As for the sunglasses, those are two of my top favorite styles so that’s a tough choice. I’m all about a classic pair of aviators, but the ray bans are super cute too!

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      I am pretty sure we have a similar style too! 😉 Just like everything else in life lol! You of all people are definitely my cross country twin ha ha! I am torn between the sunglasses too, so I am thinking a trip to the store to try both on and compare notes is the way to go!

  4. Such cute picks!!! I just picked up two casual blazers for spring/summer and I am loving them already. Those wedges and clutch are super cute. As for the sunglasses, I actually have both pairs of those Ray Bans so clearly I LOVE your taste! I personally get more use out of my aviators though 🙂

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Oh awesome! I really want a light blazer that I can throw on to dress up, or dress down an outfit. They are such versatile pieces! I wish I could have both pairs (lol!), but unfortunately right now I am going to have to stick to one! Maybe I should buy one now, one later? ha ha! Then I don’t have to choose! 🙂

  5. I’m actually heading to J Crew soon, and pretty sure I want everything you posted 🙂

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Ahh jealous! 😉 I hope (know!) you got some good stuff! I am hoping to go in the next couple weeks!

  6. I LOVE that dress and the blazer! Knit blazers are so in right now, and I have been dying to get one!

    That is such a tough call on the sunglasses. I love them both. I would probably go with the Ray Bans just because that shape seems to work better with my face. I so wish that I could pull off a pair of aviators though :(.

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Oh I know! I am obsessed with the knit blazers, they are so light and versatile and would be perfect for spring, summer, and fall! I am going to the sunglass store in the next couple weeks to try on both pairs and contrast and compare. I am hoping the decision is easy and I know with overwhelming certainty which pair is coming home with me! 😉

  7. I need new everything!!!!! Especially a new purse and comfortable shoes!!! 🙂 It’s hard being a stay at home mom on a budget…….especially when my 10 year old is already a little fashionista!!! 🙂

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Ahh I can only imagine! If I have a daughter someday, she will probably be decked out in the latest pieces and I will be wearing my 10+ year old sweaters ha ha! It is just too much fun dressing little girls!

  8. I love the blazer!!! Ahh… so adorable. A blazer is #1 on my wishlist.

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Ahh me too! I am obsessed with the light knit blazers! Would be the perfect transition piece for spring, summer, and into the fall! I know I would get a lot of wear out of it! 🙂

  9. Ah, I seriously love ALL of these items! I can’t wait to do some spring shopping! I especially love that blazer… so cute!

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Ha ha me too! I told my husband to check out my wish list on the blog today in case he is wanting to get me a gift! Ha ha ha, I am guessing he probably hasn’t even checked it out…yet! 😉

  10. I love your taste. Will you come be my personal shopper? Not even joking. I’m horrible with this stuff!

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Ha ha! I would LOVE to! If I had all the money in the world to spend, I believe I would be an excellent personal shopper! Lol! Unfortunately though, I like to put 10 things on my wish list and sometimes purchase 1! Gotta save some of those $$!
