Out to Lunch

Bag Full-shot Close-up Full-shot2 Clarisse and Meryl

Today I went on a shopping/lunch trip to none other than our favorite American Girl store! I had a blast browsing and got to pick up a few things I’ve been dying to get, and then had a delicious lunch with my new friend Meryl! Meryl decided to get her ears pierced, but I turned down the chance once again (and am not regretting it yet, so that’s good). I think our server thought I was a little crazy for doing outfit pictures in the bistro during lunch, but it was a quiet afternoon, so we weren’t disturbing anyone, and a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do!

Top 5 Spring Must-Haves

If you enjoyed the “Holiday Must-Have” guide this winter, you may find this spring fashion guide helpful for your spring shopping! Here are my top five must-haves for spring, with links to some great examples that are available on Etsy!

1. Floral Print Dress
A floral print with is the #1 need for spring! Whether for an outdoor “garden party” event, or just a casual day in the sunshine, every girl needs a patterned spring dress!

2. Light Jacket
Spring clothes are wonderful, but sometimes it is just too chilly to wear a sleeveless or short-sleeved dress or top alone. A lightweight outer-layer is perfect to keep you warm, and add a little more style to your look!

3. Cropped Pant
Maybe it’s just me, but my obsession for spring is cropped pants. They don’t feel as restricting as full-length jeans, but are a little less summer-y than shorts. Plus, they often come in colors to add even more fun to your spring wardrobe!

4. Spring Scarf
Everyone knows I’m an accessory girl, so I think a light-weight scarf is a staple for a stylish wardrobe! It’s a great way to add a little extra something to a simple outfit, or bring a great outfit to the next level!

5. Flower Adornment
To add the finishing touch, choose an accessory that features the true sign of spring: flowers!
