Outfit on a Budget: Spring Essentials

bell sleevesSpring is right around the corner and lately I’ve been obsessing over all things bringing warmer, happier thoughts. Is it just me or are there SO many good styles out this spring? I have been on a huge denim and shoe kick (as always) and trust me – there are some A++ options for spring fashion right now. After a short stint from our Outfit on a Budget series, I have loved putting this one together. Click through for my favorite spring essentials.

First of all…jeans. I don’t think I can ever remember a time when so many different styles and fits were in. Currently I am loving high-waist denim and cropped/frayed jeans. I recently ordered a few pairs from Zara and can’t wait to play dress up when they arrive.

I have been trying to focus on purchasing comfortable shoes for our upcoming trip to Europe, but these wedges have been screaming my name (definitely our splurge for this month’s roundup). What trends are you loving this spring?

      Aren’t they perfect?! I found a more budget-friendly option by Steve Madden but I just love these ones so much. I may have to splurge on them sometime in the near future. ;-) Glad to hear you like them too!
