I’m ready for spring whenever it’s ready to make a cameo. I did some shopping and put together a haul video for you guys! Check out the trends I’m into so far this season.
I recently headed to the city for some spring shopping despite the unrelenting NYC snowstorms. I don’t know if it’s just because the forecast doesn’t align with the calendar or what, but I’ve been underwhelmed by the spring products I’ve seen so far. It seems like when you’re in the mood to really shop, you’re scrounging to find pieces you like. And when your bank account is begging you to take a breather, you suddenly fall in love with every window display you see. Does that happen to anyone else? Ugh, c’est la vie.
I was planning to only hit Topshop, but since the spring selection was a bit limited, I also headed to Aritzia, Bershka, Levis, and Club Monaco. After an armful of selects, several store laps, and a mild amount of deliberation, I came home with a bag of style goodies that I was antsy to wear. So antsy, that I headed to Miami last weekend for the chance to actually debut my spring selects. Okay, so that wasn’t the sole reason, but it played a minor role in the decision. I’m just so tired of being cold!
The haul color palette was a feminine mix of bright white hues, pastel blues, black accents, and light wash denim to ground it all. I think these four elements could very well make for a stylish spring capsule wardrobe if you’re into that sort of thing. I’m more of a big, wide wardrobe type of dame myself.
I also put together a haul video for you guys! You can see me try on everything, do my best impression of an airline stewardess, and give my final opinions on the pieces I purchased.
While shopping, I immediately noticed that polka dots were everywhere. I wasn’t confident that I’d go home with any speckled pieces of my own, but it turns out, I liked the trend more than I thought I would. You will inevitably run into polka dots if you head out for some shopping. Are polka dots the new stripes? We shall see. I think if you look for sleek fabric cuts and style them with complementary pieces, polka dots can seamlessly transform from juvenile to ladylike.
