Hi friends..hope you are well and enjoying spring. I know I am and never do I remember being so happy for it’s arrival. It is so nice to see the sun, wake up to the birds chirping and even some days open up the windows!

The older I get the more I love the warmer weather. Today’s post is all about spring staples, I could live in everything on this post alone:) I was asked to go shopping with a friend recently who is ready to revamp her wardrobe and she asked me about my spring staples, so it got me thinking…..if I were to choose 20 new items for the season this is what you would find on my list.

What is great about this is that most pieces are interchangeable and all are classic, here to stay pieces. I go with a high/low approach and since I tend to buy more tailored classic items, they literally stay in my closet forever. The only thing that is not constant is the sizes, lol, but that is a different post all togehter!

How about you? What does your spring into summer wardrobe look like? So imagine the spring fairy has dropped by and grantng you two wishes…which two would you choose?



CHOICE 1 Love this top and I am sure you are not surprised, click here


CHOICE 2. I have this sweater in three colors and am loving the new spring/summer colors of soft pink/pale lavender, with all white these would be stunning! Click here

_11971975 _11971853

CHOICE 3. How great are these? I could not resist, hope the are comfy! I could see them with a sundress, capris, slacks….beautiful! Click here


CHOICE 4. As you know, big fan of NYDJ pants..they fit great and hold up unbelievably welL. I am a believer and fan, these are great, just got them, big on capris for the warmer months. Plus they come in my two favorite colors, white and blue! Click here

CHOICE 5. Another favorite brand, Theory…really like this bandeau striped tee, a great everyday staple that looks sharp and classic in navy and white, click here


CHOICE 6. Its funny I am normally not a fan of Tory Burch shoes or bags because of the big logos but this one I love, especially the braided handles, the color and the price is the best part:) Click here


CHOICE 7. Arent these flats so chic? They go mighty well with that bag up there, could see these with all white or earthy soft colors though this color actually goes with everything! Click here


CHOICE 8. This is a “me” blouse, soft, airy and feminine. This could be easily dressed down with jeans or capris or dressed up with ivory/white slacks and a gold bracket…beautiful! Click here


CHOICE 9. With spring comes spring showers, and you want to look good while battling the rain right? I think this Barbour rain jacket with its cinched waist and neutral go with everything color is a great staple, click here


CHOICE 10. Everyone should have a great white summer dress in their closet! This could go casual or dressy…from the new Olivia Palermo line isn’t this a beauty. I was shocked at the price, would only add a longer slip:) Click here


CHOICE 11 I am all about a soft comfy white linen sweater and this one is perfect, even down to the length. For cooler days/nights this one is so light that you can layer with it, and it looks great with jeans or white capris. Click here


CHOICE 12. Big fan of Theory and their sensible approach to classic streamlined dressing. Got these slacks and they fit like a glove, beautiful quality too. Now for the new season I want them in other colors…..the light tan (which I got) looks great with every color particularly white! Click here


CHOICE 13. A great little white top is a must have, you can layer with it or add an interesting necklace to jazz it up, this little top can be easily dressed up or down with jeans or a dressier pair of pants and the price makes it affordable enough to get in all three colors! Bonus points for scalloped bottom:)  Click here


CHOICE 14. Love this espadrille, the color, the cutout detailing (cool on the feet) a neutral that could be a great every day pair….click here


CHOICE 15. Think the Mary y Sol tote is a stylish choice when you want a casual straw tote that can double as a chic beach/pool bag….this one is great! Click here


CHOICE 16. Love this sweater…a fan of the color, blush and the white detailing makes this a beauty…could see going out at night with this and a pair of white pants, chic and so “Audrey”! Click here


CHOICE 17. Is this not so gorgeous and feminine? I was shocked when I saw it was from Topshop, could easily be a couture dress…perfect for a spring or summer wedding, add a little wrap, a stroppy pair of heels and you are good to go, love the color. Just would add a longer slip not a fan of the short version shown here and would do beige/off white shoes and clutch. Click here


CHOICE 18. Black pants….a HUGE part of my wardrobe year round. I wear them all the time and lets face it, no piece of clothing is more forgiving!  These by NYDJ fit so well and are quite slenderizing…..huge bonus:) Click here


CHOICE 19 A simple well fitting tee shirt is a must have for any warm weather wardrobe….this one is great fitting, ultra affordable and so much so that you can buy  it more than one color…many colors to choose from! Click here

CHOICE 20. Doesn’t this look like a dress you could live in all summer long? Smart, super reasonable and linen…yes! Comes in four patterns/colors. I bought a similar linen dress 2 summers ago and wore it all season, it was so cool and comfortable and always looked smart. You will be surprised at the price of this one! Click here


And here are some of my favorite looks together, made them as “outfits”……pretty much loving it all. Fun, soft, feminine, lots of pieces that can be interchanged. Very much my style. How about you? What are your “go to’s” as we head into spring/summer. I am all too happy to be shedding all the layers and all my black/gray/camel staples…..bring on the white!


Thanks for stopping in…wishing you a fabulous day! Until next time…..

PS My warehouse blowout part 2 is on until tonight, most items are sold but still a few odds and ends and still some Antica Farmacista items which are all a great deal! Click here

GOod morning Tina! Hard to choose but I’m ready for a steady spring. Yesterday was perfect, today? RAIN! But I guess we can’t have spring without that. Happy day! Anita

Tina, these are such gorgeous choices.. I love item 8 but the link on it takes me to espadrilles 🙁 . I would love to own that blouse but since i dont have a clue on the maker .. i may just have to surf the entire Blouse section on the Nordstrom site 🙁

Maritza on

I totally love all of these beautiful items….but my two fav’s are 7 and 16…..

Like you, I have black pants in the rotation year ’round, but I am looking forward to the transition to lighter brighter colors and textures that come with the warmer weather. Happy spring!

We love everything that Joie has to offer for spring so you had us with that first top! It’s still a but chilly for some of these great picks but we know summer’s on its way. Hope you’re having a great week, Tina!

What a fun post – with great ideas for some must have essentials! Love the slides with the bows on them!

I love #8 but the link in the description sent me to the Nordstrom website for the sandal (#7). Can you tell me where the blouse is from or correct the link? I was going to buy it!

Both 3 and 14 have breathing room, and I would buy both for the summer days ahead. And, I want to thank you for always reminding me to reach higher and do better in my home. I stay inspired because of you.
