Spring is so close I can almost taste the iced coffee I will sip outside the very first day the temperature reaches 70º (and not one day later). On said day, I will happily say goodbye to my wool socks, mittens, and puffy jackets in favor of lightweight trousers, T-shirts, and breezy dresses. Oh, and sandals—lots and lots of strappy, open-toe sandals. I am practically salivating at the thought.
Depending on where you live, these days may not be so far out of sight, which is why I'm sharing some wardrobe-refresh items to get you ready in time for spring. I will personally be doing plenty of my spring shopping at Macy's, after discovering how many stylish spring pieces they have under $150 (I have always loved an affordable find). Most of the 11 items on my list actually cost much less than that, so don't blame me when you want them all.
Meet your new office pants. You'll be wearing this at least once a week come spring.
These strappy black block heels are only two inches high, which means I can wear them for an entire day running around NYC without ever regretting my footwear choice.
I will be wearing this floral minidress to work with white sneakers on repeat from April to September. It may even come on a few vacations with me too.
This is not your average plain white T-shirt. The belt detail cinches the waist for an interesting and polished look.
But does it come in black, you ask? It sure does, which means your next casual denim outfit is covered.
This floral midi dress has spring wedding written all over it.
This sheer pussy-bow blouse is so easy to style. I'd personally wear it with black or white denim.
This lightweight black jumpsuit is your answer to getting ready in five minutes or less. No one has to know.
I really want a pair of fresh white sandals for spring and summer, but I'm giving myself a $100 max spend as I really can't be trusted with this color footwear unless they are machine washable.
I'm a sucker for pants with a built-in belt, so I'll be needing these in this beige color as well. They'll be great for all of the head-to-toe neutral outfits I'm planning for spring.
I don't like spending a ton of money on trendy items, but at less than $50, this pair of blue snakeskin sandals is a no-brainer. They'll add some serious spice to all of my LBDs this spring.
