Out With The Old In With The New

One of my favorite things to do during the springtime is clean out my closet. I know it sounds pretty blah, but it’s so refreshing. Out with the old black, brown, and greys, and in with the new salmon, teal, and whites. Out with the turtlenecks, and in with the scoop necks. Since budget is always a concern I was very picking this year when choosing a few staple items for my spring wardrobe. Since I’m not much of a mall shopper I really have to get myself jazzed up for this sort of shopping spree. I made my list of musts and ventured out.:

White jeans
Dark blue jeans
Salmon shirt
Light blue shirt
Dress (that I could wear with heels and flats)

As Murphy’s Law would have it I came home empty handed, and totally frustrated. Why is it that every time you have money to spend you can’t find a thing, but when you don’t that’s when all the eye candy comes out? On my second trip to the mall I decided to stop by H&M. I’m typically not successful there, but this day I was. I found my salmon shirt, and an awesome light pink dress. Only two sizes left and one of those sizes was mine. Thank you very much!!

This past weekend I wore the dress and got tons of compliments on it. It’s the kind of dress that fits my body type, and is so comfortable. When you find something like this it’s worth sharing.  This dress also reminded me of Shabby Apple, a company that I found on the internet. It has become one of my favorites because they have a beautiful selection of dresses that are fit to flatter any body type. When you visit their site it will ask you a couple of questions and then it will hand pick dresses that suite you. Great idea right! Check them out.

What are some of your staple items this spring? I’d love to hear about them!
