I'm ready for spring.  

I always get really antsy for the seasons to transition so that I can wear a whole new set of clothes.  I have a thing for gingham, clearly, and I feel like fall/winter just doesn't do that pattern justice!  Same goes for all the bright colors that come out in stores in the spring.  Namely my signature color, pink.  I am a color lover at heart, so spring and summer style is where my closet truly shines!

We have had a weird streak of nice 60-something degree weather in Milwaukee this weekend, so I definitely took advantage of it!  I busted out this pink gingham top that I bought from T & J Designs, an online boutique with the cutest apparel!  I also bought another top for my NYC trip next month.  They were having a great sale when I purchased, but this top is actually only $20 anyways (on sale)! 

My jeans are the new kate spade denim for the spring.  I have the dark wash from the fall/winter, but I love this lighter version.  I have them pin-rolled because basically all jeans are too long on me because I'm so petite (5'2").  Nothing fits right in allll the places.  Plus I like the rolled jeans look!

These sandal heels are going to be my favorite for the warm weather, I just know it.  I saw them at Target and knew that I'd regret it if I didn't buy.  They make you feel fancy, but the heels are still pretty low so they're actually comfortable.  I love everything about them.

The trench coat is something I bought right before London last year.  I saw that Charming Charlie had it, but it was like $70, so I passed.  But then I was thinking about it a month or two later and it had gone on sale for $40!  So I literally called my store right then and there and had them put the one they had left on hold...it was my size.  Yippeeee!

For accessories, I wore my usual Alex & Ani charm bracelets and kate spade white enamel set in stone bracelet.  I have a good feeling about my kate spade whimsies happy bracelet for spring too, lots of colors.  My earrings were something I bought years ago but hadn't busted out in a while, they matched perfectly with my gingham!  The sunglasses are a favorite, which you'll know if you've been around my blog for a while.  I love a good cat eye.  Finally, I purchased this pink iridescent Nebula ring from an online shop called Sparkle La Vie.  She sells theeeee PRETTIEST jewelry, I mean gorgeous.  I bought the last one in this color and style, but there are tons of other great options and things I want.  You'll have to take a look!

Can't wait to show you more of my spring style!
