Although it might feel like summer is here (because the semester is finally over), we still have about six weeks until the season’s official arrival, so spring is in full-swing. Here are some spring essentials to get you through the wet and unpredictable days in style. And, almost everything on this list is under $50!
I tend to think that most people have a lot of transitional pieces that easily take them through the spring season, so a major shopping spree isn’t necessary. Instead, investing in a few key pieces can set you up for style success.
This T Shirt Dress is under $30 and comes in other colors and perfect for easy layering when on-the-go.
Spring is a great time to add a few new accessories and BaubleBar is always my go-to spot. Right now, they’re having a promo where if you buy 1 item, you can save 20% with code SAVE 20, if you get 2 items, you save 25% (SAVE 25) and you can save 30% on 3 or more items (SAVE30) so why not add a new necklace or some statement earrings to your spring rotation?
The right scarf is a necessity in spring weather. You’re going in and out of buildings that haven’t figured out whether they’re running the heat or A/C yet, and sometimes the temps drop ten degrees in a few hours. This lightweight scarf is not only cute, but practical and under $40. It also comes in two other patterns.
Now on to my favorite things – bags and shoes! Spring is wet and can be sloppy, so you want to be off the ground a bit, which is why I never wear flip flops in the spring, and save my flats for dry days. A great pair of chunky heels like these ($89 and also come in black), or a good wedge is the best option.
When you’re not toting all of your stuff around, this crossbody bag for $42 is a cute option for the spring because it can handle a little sprinkle, and still fit all of your essentials while keeping your hands free. It also comes in a stunning light blue color.
Last but definitely not least, is a great jean jacket ($35). It’s easy to toss this on and know you’ll still be warm and stylish. Old Navy is always my first stop when I need things like this, and they have tons of choices. I like to stick with white because it pairs easily with any type of jeans and works well with dresses, especially the t-shirt dress shown above!
