spring wardrobe upgrade

If you live in the midwest, you know the weather is up and down like a single girl's dating life. Sometimes you have guys coming out of the woodwork and then it's a complete drought and you find only the strangest of guys coming up to you at bars.

Well, the weather and specifically spring is like that for Clevelanders. For instance, this weekend it was over 60 degrees on Sunday and then only a few days later we have flurries and are bundled up in our wool winter coats and leather gloves.

Even with our sporadic weather,  I am daydreaming of springtime runs outdoors, Sunday funday  patio brunches, and a lavender pedicure with wedge sandals, bright colored jeans and a sleevless leather shirt in my head. No jacket required!

Each season, I start a running list of clothes, shoes and accessories I want to add to my ever-growing closet. It may be something I see in Lucky, on the Refinery 29 or even what is Harper's (obviously found at an affordable price) so I don't forget and can correctly prioritize on what to splurge on and what to pick up at H&M versus Piperlime. For exampke - do I buy the pair of Ash metallic sneakers or opt for the exact same ones  in black for a quarter of the price at Target? You do the math.


apparently my money is growing on trees on my patio.



A few of my favorites - bold ankle straps, lace, light neutrals and cargo. Leather is optional!

For jewelry, I'm all about the mixed metal look with chains and moving away from the brightly colored bauble necklaces of the past two years. Think double gold cuffs with stackable rings and then a chain party around your neck of rose, titanium and gold.

All jewelry can be found on my new obsession - Baublebar

What's on your shopping list this season? Sneaker wedges? Lace mini dress or a leather mini skirt?

Get out those wallets ladies and let the shopping season begin!

I need to create a list. The problem is I. WANT. EVERYTHING. But first, I need to clean out my closet.

I just got back from NYC and I saw lots of girls in casual, flat thigh high boots. While of course heeled thigh highs might be a bit much I thought that version looked way too adorable!

And I agree with your very organized list :).
