My winter wardrobe is still getting a lot of air time lately, and I’ve been longing to break out some warm weather pieces.  Until then, layering is a girl’s best friend. Here are ten spring accessories & wardrobe essentials that have been calling my name:

  1. Rebecca Minkoff Lolita Sunglass Pouch $95 available for pre-order (ships April 29th)- Nevermind the fact that I keep my sunglasses in their case, I am defenseless against adorable pouches. Rebecca Minkoff has some of the best around, this one happens to be my favorite.
  2. Elizabeth and James Park Wayfarer Sunglasses $155 @ Saks- I rarely leave my house without my Ray-Ban aviators, but a pair of tortoise shell wayfarers might be a nice way to switch things up
  3. Cole Haan Maria Sharapova “Air Viola” Caged Sandals $198 @ Bloomingdales- These are right on trend, and the thing about nude heels is that they really help elongate your leg…I’m a mere 5’4 so I can use a boost. Additionally, Cole Haan shoes have Nike Air technology built in so they are a bit more comfortable than your average caged sandal!
  4. color collage ballad dress $135 @ Madewell- The print on this dress immediately brings to mind the impressionist floral paintings I admire. Printed skirts and dresses have served as fantastic building blocks for my recent looks. Spring has been rather frigid in NYC, so one can easily wear a dress like this with a blazer and tights now, and alone with sandals later if and when the weather decides to cooperate.
  5. Prada Canvas & Cinghiale Flap Bag $1,250- Prada’s new preppy striped bags make me want to cry out in delight. The price tag, not so much.
  6. SHORT JACKET $129 @ Zara- I love the idea of pairing a cropped white blazer with a bold hued dress.
  7. Perforated leather shoulder bag $300 J.Crew at Net-a-porter- I am always strangely drawn to perforated leather and J.Crew has some nice options in both shoes & bags. Neutral accessories are definitely a must for spring, this would work well as an everyday bag.
  8. Kate Spade tipsy cap-toe flats $198- I fell instantly in love with this pop of yellow (or pink) on these flats- they are selling out on the Kate Spade site so order them over at Endless while you can, Belle by Sigerson Morrison has a pretty pink cap-toe flat as well for a bit more cash
  9. Melted Gemstone Bangles $38 @ Anthropologie- these are brilliant, versatile, and affordable…I plan on pairing these with everything from denim to a pretty coral dress.
  10. J.Crew Wave Tank $88- I love silk tanks & wouldn’t think of kicking my love for stripes, so this is perfect. The fact the stripes are going in an alternate direction makes this tank a bit more flattering, I think.
