As winter starts to disappear (at least here) I've been working on putting together my spring wardrobe. As usual, I look for bright colors, floral prints, and pieces that can easily be worked into summer as well. I've been shopping with Modcloth for as long as I can remember and I'm excited to collaborate with them by showing you my spring essentials!

Dapper Day is upon us and it's time to get your outfit together! Thanks to your help I've already picked mine, but here are some picks for your last minute ensemble:
I'm all about a statement dress but I feel like Dapper Day is the perfect time to take it up a notch. I love the idea of wearing a cute hat or fascinator with your dress. Since you're outside most of the day sunglasses are a must!
Whether you're going for style or comfort, your shoes should make a statement! Since I'll be working the event I'm going to wear some super cute metallic flats.
Nothing finishes off an outfit like a cute brooch! I love Erstwilder brooches because they're high quality and equally as cute. I actually got the "Pigs Can Fly" brooch in the mail yesterday and I plan to wear it on Saturday.
Will you be attending Dapper Day this weekend? If so, make sure to stop by the Unique Vintage booth. Come say hello and shop away!

I absolutely could not wait until Halloween to show off this beauty. I wouldn't dare to keep this hidden for that long! Like I've said before, I don't actually like Halloween but I can't get enough of anything inspired by it. This skirt had been on my wish list for a very long time and I finally purchased it on Pinup Girl Clothing's Friday the 13th sale. Just like any of their house brands, the quality is superb and the cotton is nice and heavy. Perfect for all kinds of weather and it's pretty much impossible for the wind to get a hold of it. I don't know about you but that's always a huge concern for me in southern California!

I've had this dress for a few weeks but was waiting for the perfect time and place to show it off. About twenty minutes away there are miles of orange groves along a scenic highway. So I loaded Bianca and my mom into the car for the mini road trip. There was way more traffic than I anticipated but we somehow made it work. I also took a few oranges for the ride home. Overall I'd say it was worth the frustration but I don't think I'll do it again soon!

I absolutely love spring. The weather is wonderful, pastels and florals are all over the place, and many beautiful clothing collections are released. I've been saving and waiting for many of these pieces and I want to share my favorites in this post today. Here's my spring wish list:
Heart of Haute
Pinup Girl Clothing has some amazing pieces coming out this spring. I want pretty much everything from their Mary Blair collection. I also had the honor of trying on their Nancy dress a few weeks ago and it's a dream! The Ava dress now comes in a swing style and in pink. It's like they can read my mind...
I've been talking about this for months but I'm anxiously anticipating Heart of Haute's new collection. The arrival of the Mercedes dress, the new floral prints, and the new kid's line! I can't wait to get my hands on that castle dress for Bianca.
Of course, Modcloth is bursting at the seams with spring ready looks. While my closet is mostly dresses, I'm looking into spring-worthy separates to add to it. I love that pink gingham skirt, I have a feeling you'll be seeing it soon :).
Although Rebel Circus has a lot of black/punk clothing, they have a great selection of spring styles too. I'm always impressed with their selection of Voodoo Vixen items and I love that they also carry some of the Sourpuss kids line. I can totally see Bianca wearing that dress!
What's on your wish list for spring? Are you as excited for the Pinup Girl Clothing/Heart of Haute lines as I am?
