Sunny Trench

I promise I am not obsessed with the color yellow. There's just so much yellow to choose from this spring and this Michael Kors trench is lovely and on sale at Bluefly for $108. Had I not just snagged a new white trench, this would be on its way to my closet.

Open-Toed Pumps

I tend to buy my shoes from one of two places, Piperlime or Nordstrom, and the latter is having a shoe sale. I discovered these shoes marked down to $58.50 and they still have a pretty good selection of sizes and colors.

Colorblock Dress

I really dig this dress at Delias. Its fun, bright, and looks comfortable. And totally affordable. I think the silhouette could be quite flattering (if you aren't overly blessed in the bust department) and its the perfect start for whatever you have planned for a Saturday afternoon. Add a pair of sandals and bangles and you are good to go.

Strappy Sandal

I really like the look of these thong sandals that buckle at the ankle. I can imagine wearing them with a shift, shorts, or jeans and they will look great. I think the braided straps make them a bit different than the other options I have seen and they are super affordable ($28) at Urban Outfitters. Grab them while you can!

Shoes with Panache

I bought these shoes at Piperlime in blue and they are remarkably comfortable. When I tried them on I was pleasantly surprised and delighted that I had bought them. The patent leather shoe comes in black, blue, and black/white combo.

Linen Pants

I don't know why, but I always forget that Victoria's Secret sells real clothes. And then I see something super cute there that's truly affordable, like these linen pants. They look incredibly comfortable and I could probably live in them most of the summer.

Think Pink

I recently read that pink is one of the few colors that truly looks good on everyone and I've seen a ton of yellow and blue of late, so pink is a little change up. If you are looking to add some pep to your spring wardrobe and like the ease that going the dress route provides (one less decision to make), this dress at Bluefly appears to be an affordable item that's worth adding to the rotation.

Dress Obsession

I seem to be obsessed lately with cute dresses. They just seem so easy to me and only require me to add a few accessories and get out the door. And Anthropologie (and Betsey Johnson) never lets me down when it comes to fun dresses that just work. These are the ones I am coveting right now:

Wear-It-Well-Jumper (looks like it would be slimming on and I can dress it up or down).
Brighter Season Dress (really dig the black and yellow combo).
Loverly Dress (I have to be picky about strapless and this sweetheart neckline is a good bet).
Star Map Shift (Shifts are super hot right now and I happen to really like navy).
Saffron Step Dress (more yellow, but this silhouette is lovely).

Happy dress shopping!

White Clutch

I have been looking for a few weeks now for a basic white clutch without breaking the bank. I have found a ton of great bags, but most of them have been a bit more than I am willingly to spend (I'd rather spend my greenbacks on a new bag for spring that I will use more frequently). I found this option the other night and Shop Intuition offers it in three other colors (azure, chocolate, and stone).

Linen Dress Option

I have a bad case of spring fever, because I can't wait to rotate my spring items back into my closet! I love this little dress with a pair of the gladiator sandals that are everywhere this season. Grab it while you can at Bluefly for $147.
