Spring Thinking by amandacarmela

It is absolutely pounding snow on us in New England right now. We already got about 12 inches this past Thursday and now we are predicted to get another 12-14 inches....
So with that, I am dying for spring and summer. I miss showing some skin! I'm getting super sick of always having to bundle up and cover up. In serious need of vitamin D.
I've rounded up some gorgeous little spring essentials for the warmer months coming ahead. I know it's quite a ways away, but it's always good to get a head start on things!

Tops + Blouses:
Basic Tee - I think a basic tee is perfect for spring because it can be paired with so many things! You can do so much with it. Throw it on with a pair of skinny jeans and a cardigan or dress it up with a pair of trousers and a blazer.
Tank Top - A pretty tank top is essential because it's a great layering piece. Weather can be confusing for the most part in spring (at least in New England) so you can throw this under a jumper, jacket, or slouchy tee.
A Blouse - A pretty blouse is another spring essential. You can use it as the main focal point of any outfit.
Off the Shoulder - This trendy piece is definitely moving its way to becoming a wardrobe staple. It's the perfect way to show some skin without being too revealing. I love pairing this denim blue color with some crisp white skinny jeans.
V-Neck Cami - V-neck cami's are super in and I'd like to credit this trend to Lorna from @lornaluxe with her infamous "Chestfies" - always showcasing deep v camisoles with delicate jewels. I love this look so much and this is probably one of the only times that I wish I had size A boobs so I could pull it off! Great piece for spring.

Cardi's + Jackets:
Grey Cardigan - Can't ever go wrong with grey. It'll go perfectly with a lot of the pieces listed above!
Denim Jacket - A wardrobe staple and perfect for those cooler spring days. Pair yours with black or white denim and a simple top.
Blazer - Blazers are so much fun to play around with and make casual. I love the look of pairing them with jeans and an everyday tee to really dress them down.
A Light Jacket - I loved the look of this heather grey jacket, I was on the hunt to find a light one to wear in the spring and I think I found my match (at just a little over $50!)

Bottoms:
The Fringe Crop - Have you seen these cuties out and about while shopping lately?? Aren't they gorgeous! I want every single pair I see.
Maxi Skirt - The maxi skirt is the ideal piece for spring. So breezy and they come in all different prints and patterns. I like to pair mine with a crop top.
Joggers / Trousers - Joggers are similar to blazers, you can dress them up or down. When I was working at my little internship, my boss wore hers with vans in the morning and then quickly threw on some black heels for a meeting and the entire look changed instantly. They're so versatile and easy!
Boyfriend Jeans - I still haven't found the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans, but when I do I know I'll wear the hell out of them!
White Trousers - White skinny jeans & trousers make me think of spring because of how clean and new they look. I'd love to pair mine with the denim blue off the shoulder mentioned above.

Shoes:
White sneakers - White sneakers and a floral dress is honestly the cutest combo ever.
Flats - Flats with skinny jeans, joggers, trousers - you name it.
Espadrilles - I HAVE AN OBSESSION. It's with espadrilles. I recently got the original striped pair from Soludos, but I literally want every single pair that they've made. Like the denim blue one and the one with the flamingo on it?! So friggin adorable!
Nude Heels - Nude heels are great in the spring. They, similar to the white skinny jeans, make me think of a clean and sophisticated look - perfect for spring, the season of renewal!
Wedges - I love wearing wedges with jeans & skirts because they really elongate the legs.


Have a lovely Monday!
