My last haul of the season is for clothing and accessories. I have been on a sorting frenzy lately, paring down my wardrobe quite a bit as I replace the younger style of my twenties with my new tastes. I picked up a few new pieces that I am very excited about and thought I would share my finds with you.
Sundance – I’ve admired the clothes in their catalogues for years and finally decided to take the plunge!
✻ Love At First Sight Dress – I fell in love with this beauty the moment I spotted it in the spring catalogue. It is gorgeous on, hitting just above the knee in a classic cut. I love that it is not too constricting around the bodice, making it comfortable but still classy. I’m thinking of pairing it with a cream-colored cardigan and flats for Easter this year.
✻ Island Rhythms Dress – I parted ways with much of my summer and beach getaway dress collection from my twenties that no longer suited my style. I love this breezy beauty that falls to the knee as a great warm weather dress. Plus, it folds nicely for easy travel.
✻ Carlie Braided Platform Wedges – I had no idea Frye made anything other than boots before stumbling across these wedges. It was love at first sight! Brown sandals like these are so versatile in the warmer months. I love the braided detail along the base.
✻ Studded Starlight Boots – I’ve been on the hunt for a light brown pair of boots suitable for warmer weather for quite some time now and these beauties are perfect! They’re wide enough to fit my athletic calves and super comfortable even with a hidden wedge which gives you a bit more height. I love the laser cut design and scalloped edging along the top of the boots, giving them a beautiful flar that’s perfect to pair with dresses and skirts for spring and fall.
Sundance is well known for their artisan jewelry collections. I actually have a few pieces I bought up at the Sundance shop in Utah from over the years and decided to treat myself to some new additions that I’ve been drooling over in the catalogues for quite some time. I’m including the stock photos from Sundance as well (image sources provided with the links below) since I had trouble properly photographing them.
✻ Light Rain Necklace – Moonstones are one of my favorite gems. I love this dainty sterling silver piece!
✻ Blue Moonlight Earrings – I love the combination of moonstone with blue topaz in this beautiful pair. I have a topaz necklace my Mom gave me that matches these perfectly, not to mention my new moonstone necklace!
Prana – Yet another catalogue I’ve often admired and never before made a purchase from, the laid back outdoorsy clothes appeal to me right now.
✻ Sarafina Dress – As I mentioned before, I am donating much of my warm weather dress collection of my twenties to charity and am in need of a few new lightweight casual pieces that would work well for travel. This dress definitely fits the bill! It is extremely light and airy, hitting just above the knee, and folds virtually flat for travel. I love the purple ombre!
✻ Julz Burnout Wrap – Another great piece for warm weather travel, this lightweight flyaway is perfect for layering over both casual and dressy items.
✻ Kendall Tank – A nice, lightweight top like this is a warm weather essential. I love the eyelet! I mentioned in my coordinating video (below) that I thought I might have to wear a camisole underneath this for proper coverage but I’ve discovered I don’t need to after all, which is nice!
✻ Kaley Tunic Top – I wanted a looser fitting top to wear to my weekly yin yoga class. This tunic style one is long enough to cover most of my bottom, as well.
✻ Misty Knicker – I’ve been on the hunt for knee length yoga pants for a couple of years and finally found the perfect pair for me. These are comfortable, do not ride up or pinch at the waist, and the jacquard print is lovely!
BijouxByMeg on Etsy – I love Etsy for unique crafts and handmade items, particularly jewelry. BijouxByMeg is one of my favorite shops for delicate and dainty customizable pieces.
✻ Personalized Bar Necklace – I’ve been admiring bar necklaces for awhile now and found the perfect one for me at Meg’s shop. I love how you can customize it not only with the stamped writing, but also with a stone accent of your choice. I’ve been wearing this beautiful piece quite a bit since it arrived in the mail. I know it will be a constant in my jewelry rotation from now on.
Zappos – My website of choice for shoe shopping! I pick out new walking and running shoes every year to keep my feet and legs healthy.
✻ Nike Flex 2013 Run – This is my second pair of Nike Flex Runs, which I use as a walking shoe. I find that it’s generally safe for my feet to wear these as walking shoes, although it is not advised to wear running shoes for other kinds of fitness that include lateral motion. These are lightweight, flexible, and airy, and I can easily replace the insoles with my custom orthotics.
✻ Asics Gel-Kayano 20 – I switched over to the Gel-Kayano line last year with my last pair which were the 19s. The 20 is this year’s updated model. I’ve been running in them for a month now and I love them! They offer me the support I need to help correct my overpronation, especially with my Sof Sole Airr Orthics inserts inside. I paid an extra $10 for this special “Lite-Show” version of the line not for the glow-in-the-dark gel feature, but for the beautiful mint blue color!
Amazon – The best one-stop shop on the web in my opinion. I purchase a lot of my electronics here for the great prices and available warranties.
✻ Garmin Forerunner 220 – After the sudden and unfortunate death of my previous GPS running watch (my Garmin 610 was the sad victim of being accidentally stepped on), I decided to try out the 220, which offers all of the bells and whistles I could ask for at a much lower price than the new 620. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and I love it! The new design is so much lighter. I find that it also locates satellites much faster than my 610 did. Plus, it comes in purple! I purchased the bundle so I could get the heart rate strap to go with it.
Madewell – I only started shopping at this store in the past year, but so far I’ve found great, high quality pieces to add to my wardrobe.
✻ Afternoon Dress in Saltwater Stripe – A classic cut paired with black and white? Hard to go wrong with this one! This piece is super versatile. Dress it down with sandals or up with slingbacks, it works in a variety of situations and is a great staple for my new thirties wardrobe.
✻ Draft Tank – The light heather color is what first drew me to this top. It is light and flowy and works perfectly under long cardigans or on its own as a more casual top.
✻ Kabash Top – Another light as air top that is perfect dressed down with jeans or dressed up with black pants. I love the embroidery along the neckline!
Target – My favorite place for inexpensive basics like tees and tanks.
✻ Women’s Vintage V-Neck Tee – Perfect basic white tee staple, I went up a size to a medium for a looser fit.
✻ Junior’s Lace Trim Long & Lean Tank – I don’t see any problem with shopping the juniors section if you can find pieces that suit your style and fit you. I picked up two lace trim tanks, which I wear as camis underneath other layers.
I share a closer look as well as my thoughts about each product in the coordinating video below:
Have you picked up any new clothes and/or accessories this spring? I’d love to know if you care to share! Happy Spring!
