Spring/Summer Essentials


Although Houston enjoys moderate winters, there's just something about Spring that puts a little bounce in my step. Perhaps it's the promise of summer (though my summer vacations have long since passed) or the newly budding flowers, but a gorgeous spring day never fails to put me in a good mood. And, of course, I love spring and summer fashions: the bright colors, the perky prints, fabulous sandals and wedges...it's just so refreshing after months of grays on black.

This Spring, I'm looking to update my wardrobe with some fresh new staples that are easy wearing...and easy washing (both Baby G. and I seem to go through several wardrobe changes a day now)! The type of clothes that will transition from mommy-hood to my pretty casual office. Navy and white (especially white jeans!) are my go-to's for warmer weather, but I'll be updating the classic nautical pairing with bright accessories like those gorgeous Tory Burch Sandals (orange and hot pink are both amazing with navy) and fun prints like Kate Spade's Daycation shopper. An on-trend maxi dress in a bold print is an easy weekend staple that will keep me cool and casual without feeling schleppy. Finally, I'm longing to swap out my everyday watch for something fun, light and a little bit different, like Michael Kors' resin and rose gold watch.

Clockwise (from top left): Coral Dress (Tory Burch), Jersey Blazer (Boden), Daycation Bon Shopper (Kate Spade), Denim Pleated Trouser Short (Gap), Gold Coast Lacey wallet (Kate Spade), Stripe Sunburst Tank (J.Crew), Horton Sandals (Tory Burch), Michael Kors Show Stopper Resin Watch (Nordstrom), Sexy Boot Surplus Jeans in White (Gap), and Dorrie Skirt (J.Crew).

What pieces are you craving this Spring? Any new trends you're dying to try out?

That dress is gorgeous, and it looks so comfortable! I just bought a boatload of new clothes and haven't even touched the shoe situation yet! I'm taking major advantage of all the web sales going on.

I need to shop in a major way - didn't buy anything while pregnant and now my closet is barren. I need lots of staples: white jeans, flat sandals, cotton dresses, etc.

Things like a fun watch and wallet would be a bonus - I literally need clothes to wear just so I am not naked!

I love my white jeans!! They always make a ho-hum outfit look crisp and fresh. This spring I'm loving wedges, stripes, loads of white & J Crew skirts!

Great choices. I love white jeans but they are hard to keep clean.

I love the Tory Burch sandals - they remind me of my school shoes (in brown leather) from the 70's...
