Spring Forward

welcome to my spring wish list.. I have to say, i'm always on the hunt for a bargain so being a "recessionista" actually suits me quite well! the pictures below are from my fave go-to online stores where i can almost always find the things i'm looking for (and more) at super steals.. Now if the weather would only bend to my every command and warm up already! I'm ready for spring!!!
First up.. FLORAL PRINTS!! they are blossoming up all over the place, from ditsy florals to liberty's to wild colorful abstract prints.. I love to see a sweet little floral piece mixed with black while it's still cold and then with bare legs and boots for spring/summer.... pics from asos, target and ebay.SHREDDED DENIM will be a new staple in my spring wardrobe.. i've already taken my seam ripper to a few pairs of my old jeans and am living in them--with tights underneath for now.. I love super faded out vintage looking bell bottoms and bleached skinnies. pics from abercrombie, la garconne, oak nyc, and acne jeans.
WASHED LEATHER pieces are really making a statement in nuetral colors (also want to note that there are actually some great looking faux leather jackets out there for those of you with that preference). i think a tan or white leather moto jacket is totally "the new black" for spring.. i want to layer one over everything! pics from
william rast, urban outfitters, acne jeans. i tend to believe that a girl can never have too many boots.. I spent all fall looking for the perfect ankle boot and then absurdly found 6 pairs at once. well, what could i do? for spring I think the sexy slouchy boot shape paired with dresses looks fresh.. pics from nine west, asos, isabel marant via style.com and ann demuelemeester via seaofshoes.

and finally.. anything in LACE or that LACES-UP seems to really be getting my heart rate going lately.. i love black gothic lace, and for spring light creamy romantic colors will be making an appearance for sure.. well, knowing me, it will probably stay black! pics from hot topic, asos, whowhatweardaily, forever21, target.

what are you all shopping for this spring???

All I can say is, I am glad to have you in the fashion world to try and keep me in the now trendy trends! Only bad thing is that this spring I will be sportin' a huge old belly! Florals can look cute on big belly, right??? Love Ya and thanks for the spring fashion update!

kels- all of these things will look j'adorable on your pregnant body! how cute will ripped up bell bottoms look in the summer with a flowy floral top? lace dresses & boots? yes.. I also think that sweater capes or ponchos are suuuuper adorable on pregnant babes..
