I took a look at my closet last week in an attempt to start planning what I wanted to purchase for the upcoming warmer season. I like to take this kind of inventory before spring and fall, then intentionally add some updated pieces to my wardrobe. When I was deciding what to purchase for spring, a few clothing items and accessories stood out as the main focus. With some simple styling edits, all of the pieces I selected will enhance wardrobe staples I already own.

Today I’m sharing the clothing and accessories I’ve recently added to my wardrobe for the spring (and summer) months ahead!

My inclination when it comes to spring and summer clothing has always been toward dresses because it’s an outfit that’s one and done. I wanted to find a couple of new-to-me silhouettes and colors, and the pieces below represent exactly that.

I spent last summer trying to find shorts I liked that were a longer length, which is great for running after kids and generally being active in the warmer months. I ended up buying two pairs from H&M right away this spring, because I know they’ll sell out. 

H&M Lyocell-Blend Shorts – I purchased these shorts in both white and black.

Mango Strappy Heeled Sandals

Finding a couple of great pairs of sandals was a big focus for me this spring. I’ll be sharing a dedicated blog post review of the sandals I bought in early April, so keep an eye out for that post in the next few weeks!

Le Specs Oh Damn Sunglasses

I wanted to find a couple of pairs of sunglasses with new-to-me shapes and lens colors this year and these all fit the bill!

Free People Puffy Headband

I’m still into big padded headbands and bucket hats. I recently purchased one of each to wear this spring and summer, and I want to get some big scrunchies like this one too!
