Happy Friday! Today I wanted to share five of my favorite springtime essentials. Spring is coming (so they say…even though it still definitely feels like it’s winter), and items like these are what get me excited about this transition. They are sure to put a spring in your step.
1. Transition Tops
Tops like this one from H&M, are the perfect way to stay on trend without breaking the bank. The sweater material says, “I’m so cozy”, while the ruffled cold shoulder feature says, “Bring on the sunshine and let’s play.” I love to pair this top with my favorite blue jeans and a chunky heel like these (also worn here), these, or something a bit more fun like these.
H&M is killing it with their transition tops this year. I wore this one recently to an event with what I call my “fancy pants” (unavailable, but similar here and here) and it was a hit! Some other favorites include this sparkly one, this classic black and white one, and this denim one. Grab them before they’re gone! They always sell out so fast.
2. Dainty Accessories
Springtime means ditching the big chunky scarves and reaching for lighter accenting details. I have recently purchased two necklaces that I am so in love with. This golden leaf one and my beloved half moon/horn one (also here) are my go-tos. You can’t go wrong with them seeing as though they go with almost anything. Essential to my spring wardrobe for. sure.
I bought this bandana last summer and wore it tied to my Madewell crossbody constantly. However, now I have found myself wanting to wear it as a scarf. It feels so Parisian and chic and effortless, I can’t wait to wear it more often. I also really want this blush one. Yes, please!
3. Fresh Flowers
What is springtime without fresh flowers around the house?! I am a sucker for flowers and have them throughout my house year round, but they seem even more essential, and a beautiful part of life in the spring. I know I’m spoiled, but my boyfriend brings me home a new batch of fresh flowers every Friday! How lucky am I? (Let me know if you guys want a weekly flower post or a flower arranging post!) Seeing bright blooms just makes me happy.
4. Bright Lips
Pink lips, whether they be matte or high shine, are my favorite in the spring. My lip look featured in these pictures is Melted Metal Macaroon, a slightly metallic liquid lipstick. It’s quite a bright pink, but a perfect pop of color with the right outfit. Another favorite of mine is in the shade Lust for Blush, (how fitting) and can be found at the drugstore. I am also obsessed with Buxom glosses for their high shine and minty freshness. My all-time favorite is Sophia, but I have recently fallen in love with the shade Lauren. I got it because it had my name, but it’s also gorgeous! It has a a peachy pink tint with blue reflects in it, which are sure to make your lips shine and your teeth look white.
5. The Leather Jacket
This leather jacket is easily one of the best articles of clothing I own. It’s extremely soft, worn in, and light weight while also being warm. I love pairing this with a more feminine look to give it a little edge. I like to save the tops for staying on trend, and let the layers keep the classic, timeless look. (Let me know if you guys want to see outfits styled with this leather jacket.)
I hope you guys enjoyed this week’s Friday Five and are as pumped about spring as I am.
