Spring Cravings

So now that we're officially in the spring season it's getting harder and harder for me to restrain myself from buying everything and anything that's spring (or summer) related. Basically, I want it all and I want to be able to actually wear it all....now. Who's with me on that one? Unfortunately, my bank account is restricting me on the first part and the weather is not cooperating with me on the second part.
 
But, even if the weather continues to play its cruel game for a little while longer, I'm still going to start adding a few spring pieces soon. I figured if spring wont come to me, then I'll bring me to spring. 
I've put together a few things that I'll be on the look out for the next time I go shopping and I thought I'd share them with you. And maybe that way, if spring won't come to you either then I'll help bring you to spring. 
Pastel Blue Handbag- I am loving this pastel blue colour, especially for a handbag. While normally I tend to stick to basic colours like black or tan (you know, to get mah moneys worth), something like this would be perfect to add a little something extra to any outfit during the season. But saying that, I'll be looking for similar ones with a lower price tag (I'm looking at you, Target).
Ankle Strap Sandals- I've had my eye on ankle strap sandals since last year, so I'm making sure I do not go another season without them on my feet. Confession: I want both the nude and black ones.
Floral Cell Phone Case- Although this isn't something I have to have, what better way is there to add more brightness to your day than by looking at bright, floral colours every time you grab your phone. Remember, I'm bringing me to spring. 
Army Green Spring Jacket- So a new spring jacket is something that I actually have to have and now is the perfect time of the year to try and find one. Every year I usually wait to look for one until we get our spring weather but, by that point, spring jackets are no where to be found.
Striped Dress- I've always been a huge fan of stripes no matter what the season, but when spring and summer rolls around, I can't help but gravitate towards anything but stripes. This dress is perfect for so many occasions and I would love for it to be hanging in my closest. 
Essie Nail Polish- Bright or pastel nail polish is another quick (and cheap) way to feel a little more bright and put together for the spring season. 
Coral Statement Necklace- Statement necklaces are not going anywhere this season and I want to add some coral/pink colours to my collection. It really is true that a new necklace can make you feel (and look) like you have a whole new outfit, without spending much money. #winwin.
Coral Linen Shirt- This shirt is perfect for so many reasons; it can be worn by itself or under a sweater, left open with a tank top, with jeans, white pants, and even shorts in the summer. Oh the possibilities I could have with this one.
White Converse Sneakers- I've been wanting a pair of white sneakers since last summer because I love the way they look with rolled up skinny jeans (and boyfriend jeans, although that's one trend that I can't seem to hop on board with). Amanda had me sold on these after seeing her rock them in her latest video
 
Wow, I'm already feeling a little more uplifted even just talking about these spring items (that is until I look outside my window and see the 20 cms of snow that graced us on Monday).
What are your spring cravings?

  14. I love the light blue bag, white converse and coral necklace. All very pretty. I also love to splurge on nail polish colors each season because it's a cheap and fun way to play with color!
