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!

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

    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

    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!

    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.

    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 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?!
