Spring has sprung! 
I don’t know about anyone else, but fixing up my wardrobe for each season is half the fun…anyone else?
Even though we live in Hawaii, I still get the itch for seasonal wear. Though the white jean rule be damned, because I wear those things year-round. 
Moving right along…let’s talk about spring needs versus wants if you’re me. 
Want Versus Need

1. Karen Walker Specs | These bad boys have been on my lust list for quite some time. Their price tag makes me cringe a little bit, but I respect good design and Karen’s never goes out of style. I might just be adding these to my collection this year! What is the general consensus on pricey eyewear?

2. Steve Madden Sassey & 5. Malone Souliers Fringe Heels | Is anyone else jumping on the fringe bandwagon this year? I have been on-and-off with it, but every time I see these specific pairs on blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. — I just want them! I probably won’t order both pairs, but the punch of color in #2 is just so fun!

3. Athleta Linen Pants | These were part of the late winter catalog and as soon as I saw them, I knew I needed them in my life. Turns out I waited a little bit too long to pull the $84 trigger, because they’re now backordered. Damn! But, you bet your sweet ass as soon as they’re restocked they’ll be on my doorstep. I love a good pair of linen pants!

4. Athleta Ready Set Short | It’s no secret I’m a fan of athletic apparel and am always open to trying new fits and styles. When I saw these shorts in Athleta’s Hawaiian-themed spring catalog — I hopped online and ordered them right away. They’re currently en route to my house and I can’t wait to test them out!

6. White Distressed Denim | Special thanks to Kelsey for always telling me to follow my destroyed denim jean dreams. I just got a fun pair from JAG, but I’m already lusting over another pair!

7. Michael Kor’s Wedges | These have been on my lust list for 2 years now and I finally ordered them, because I had a gift card for half the amount and thought, well shit…If I’ve been wanting them for 2 years, it’s probably a good sign. As soon as I put them on my feet, I can say they are worth every single penny…I love them!

Now that we have all of that covered, what are you loving? Feel free to send links, because I’ve been on an online shopping bender that I don’t see stopping anytime soon!

  • Those fringe heels!!! Can we just call them a need?

  • I basically think everything is a need……which might explain my closet overflow situation, and Chris' frustration. LOL πŸ™‚

  • Jen

    I would need all of these things too haha!

  • Oh love these! I just bought the tomboy jeans from American Eagle, now I rarely shop there, but man they have become my new favorite pair of jeans! I can't do the skinny jeans, I need a little freedom with legs. haha

  • Those sunglasses and linen pants are to die for! I'm so ready for spring and spring fashion! Can't wait until it's finally warm enough to start wearing all these!

    xx, Caitlin

  • I love those sunglasses! You have lots of great picks for the spring.You have great taste.

  • These are all so great! I would love those shorts for summer time! I hate jean shorts of all kinds, can never find any that fit well! Cloth would be MUCH better and so comfy!

  • Oh yes to those new MK wedges you just picked up!! I have two pairs in brown and black!! xo, Biana

  • I can see why you wanted those wedges. They are seriously so super cute! I want them myself!

  • Cute !!!! I'm pretty sure I NEED all that perfect picks !

  • I want and need all of the shoes that you featured! πŸ˜‰ I also enamored with those sunnies and white jeans.

  • Stylish picks! <3

  • Changing your wardrobe is one of the best things about the changing season. The fun of looking forward to sandals at the end of winter and looking forward to boots and scarves at the end of summer.

  • Your selection is wonderful! Did you always live in Hawaii or moved there? I am really considering this destination to move to in several years.

  • I want and need all of these things… okay maybe not need. But that's a great collection.

  • I'm not much of a shopper and I probably need a lot of things, I'm working to figure out what those things are right now.

  • Those linen pants look awesome! That is definitely something I could get used to. I used to have linen pants a long time ago, I don't know what happened to them, or why they went away…I think I will have to look for another pair. Perfect for the summer!

  • Your adorable Spring list has got me thinking what I need for Spring too! I know there are a couple of cute sandals from last season that I can still use. But I am absolutely loving the Steve Madden shows you posted. So cute!

  • I have my youngest daughter sitting beside me and she goes 'That's a pretty shoe" and then I said which one and she points to #5. Miss C loves her shoes. That's the first place she visit's when we head into the department store lol.

  • I own those athleta white pants! Aren't they just the most comfy ever? I do love those Michael Kors wedges…. A~DOR~A~BLE!!

  • I know you didnt talk about #5, but I have seen those heels everywhere. Theyre so fun. I love that athleticwear is considered appropriate to wear our and about now; especially because everything is so cute.

  • I just spring cleaned our closet just in time to make room for all these new fabby things! This mom hasn't had a cute summer wardrobe in a long time! πŸ™‚ Great finds!

  • I want those sunglasses. I always end up breaking whatever sunglasses i have so i won't invest in a pair nicer than what they sell at H&M, but ugh swoon!

  • Those wedges…I'm going to need to go ahead and just post those on my "Wants" list because they are way too cute for words!

  • ohhhhh those shoes. the sandals. all of them. you picked some amazing shoes – I love shoes and these all would be so cute paired with some jeans or even a cute long skirt too

  • I'm seeing more of these cute fringe heels! I need pink and blue in my closet. ???

  • I love those Michael Kor's wedges. We can just go ahead and call those a need. I mean, every woman NEEDS to own at least 50 pairs of shoes, right?!

  • I want it all! I need the fringed heels…great pic's for the season. Thank you!

  • Everything you have shared is pretty much going to fall under my needs list. Especially for spring essentials wardrobe goals. Love it all.

  • I need all of them lol. But I can settle for a few of the items listed. Great picks I love the edges.

  • Those wedges are amazing! Seriously, I wouldnt have held out as long as you! Love everything you have here!

  • Number six. I just bought my first pair and I can vouch that they should be on ever girl's "NEED" list. Xo
