Top (similar) | Shorts | Shoes | Purse (very similar) | Sunglasses | Earrings
We are officially T-7 days out from Costa Rica and so all I have on the brain is warm weather clothes and sunny beaches. This whole Houston Spring thing is basically warm enough to be Summer so I’ve already brought out all of the cut off shorts and tank tops. Today I want to talk about 3 of my all time favorite pieces that I highly think you should invest in. And I am not necessarily talking about investing money when I say this. It could be investing your time and actually finding a bargain piece. That’s what I did with my top and shorts here! I found my top at an outlet mall a few weeks ago and fell in love with the light weight chambray and lace detailing for only $3.99. GASP right? I linked a very similar one for you guys here. I found my shorts last year at my neighborhood Marshalls and bought them in 2 colors. I scored them at the awesome price of $40 a pop. Unfortunately they are full price now but the good news is that I wore them all summer long and a year later they are still my favorite pair of shorts. Paige Denim is an amazing brand and has held up through hundreds of washes! So to me, the price is well worth it for a good-fitting, mature pair of shorts. Lastly my purse came from Nordstrom Rack and was a steal! So it is very possible that all of these items I am about to suggest to you do not have to break the bank to be “investable” items.
Now on to the 3 things you should invest in this Spring. 1) Chambray tops 2) like I said before, a good pair of denim shorts and 3) a statement bag. Lucky for you guys I rounded up all of my favorite denim chambray tops and most are under $25 (see below)! I already have several of these in my shopping cart so you know they’ve got to be good. Why should you invest in these? Well for one, chambray is an amazing fabric for the warm weather. It is similar to linen so it is breathable and does not trap the heat in. While you can find Chambray in almost every color, I must say that denim is by far my favorite look. Next up are your denim shorts. Ladies- if all you own are a bunch of cut off shorts that do not cover your booty. Please do us all a favor and buy some quality shorts that hide all of that junk in the trunk. Not only do all of us not want to see that, you will look classier and more put together with a longer pair of shorts. I promise you they are still short enough to show off your legs and still look cute to boot! My last piece of advice is honestly one that holds true for every season. Well that’s not technically true because Houston really only has 2 seasons. Fall and Summer. I allow myself to buy a new bag as soon as the temperatures start to change, so this usually means one in the Fall that I will wear through “Winter” and one at the beginning of Spring to wear through Summer. This has helped me not waste money on cheaper bags, and instead be able to put that money towards a bag that I really like and will last me a long time.
Eek this post made me that much more excited to jump into a pair of shorts and sit my happy butt in the sand! What are some of your favorite trends for the warmer weather?
