2013 Spring Fashion Must Haves!

(& A Nordstrom $50.00 Gift Card Giveaway!!)

Have you started to notice the birds chirping and the flowers beginning to bud? Spring is coming! The good news is that we have longer days and warmer weather to look forward to. The bad news is that we’re only 3 months away from bathing suit season. Ugh. Time to lose those extra wiggle jiggles.

I’ve asked my incredibly stylish and fashionable sister to come up with the 2013 Spring fashion must haves again!  (See last year’s list here! We still love everything on this list too!) Once again, I seriously want EVERYTHING on our new list.

With this post, I am also giving away another $50 gift card to Nordstrom, the happiest place on earth.  (Sorry Disneyland, you’ve been moved to slot #2.) You can see how to enter at the bottom of this post.




FIRST, we have a lace espadrille obsession right now!!!  Check out these three different styles:

Classic Crochet Lace Toms in Silver

We love the feminine crochet look of these silver Toms.  And, for every pair you buy, they donate a pair to a child in need.  Not only are these super comfortable, but they go with everything.  We both already have these in black, but they silver is tempting too!



Valentino Lace Espadrilles

Absolutely love, love, love.  These are so girly and feminine.  BUT, you will pay for the Valentino label!!




Lacie Espadrille

Look!  We found these at Victoria Secret, just as cute as Valentino and only $68.00!!  We’ll take one in each color please!



Limited Tank

Limited Express Tank

Super cute chiffon hi-lo hem double scoop neck tank from Express, ONLY $20.00!  We’re not always into Express stuff, but this was so cute we couldn’t pass it up!  Comes in many color variations but we especially loved this silver/grey and pink.




Sunstream Eyelet Dress from Anthropologie

We are loving this dress from Anthropologie!  On the hanger, this didn’t look as cute as it did on.  It literally feels like you are wearing pajamas, and we think it’s perfect for casual or dressy.  Pair with flats and an ponytail for the daytime, or heels and a blazer for a girls night out.  Loving the green color the most and loving the open detail in the back.  At only $128.00, we think this is a steal for such a comfy, versatile dress.  (As mommies, we are all about comfort these days!)




Tory Burch Reversible Printed Logo Belt

Loving this Abbot C/ivory spring floral reversible print belt!  It’s a little pricey, but this is one you’ll have in your closet for years to come!  We picture this with jeans (or jean cutoffs) and a white tank top.  The belt will make this outfit pop.  Pair with gold hoops and you are ready to go!




AG White Skinnies

Don’t you hate how expensive good jeans are these days?  But, if you are going to splurge, these are the ones to get!  These are the stretchiest jeans ever, which make them very comfortable.  Apparently, you have to go down two sizes for these.  (So if you are a size 30 normally, you’d be a size 28.)  White jeans are all over the runways and a huge spring trend this season.  Your wardrobe isn’t complete without a pair of these!




Pearl Jacket from Paper Crown
$275.00  On Sale $192.50

Everybody needs a new cute jacket.  We love this one from Papercrown, currently on sale for $192.50.  Pair this with a cute tank top (animal print , floral print  or a solid blouse) and it’ll look beautiful.



Pace Setter Skirt from LuLu Lemon

Get your tennis on!  Even if you don’t play tennis, you could throw this on and pretend like you do.  It’s just so damn cute and we are loving the pink gingham!



St. Martin Beth One Piece Swimsuit from Vix

One pieces are making a big comeback, and we thought this one was just so pretty!  We love the colors, the pattern and how cute is the back?  Don’t worry about the tan lines, you should be wearing major sunscreen anyways.




Take Me To The Beach Cover Up

Simple, cute, black cover up to throw on while you are chasing after the kids.  It says “Take Me To The Beach”.  We think it should also say 1) Without kids, 2) With good book/good magazines, 3) With preferred cocktail



Pave Station Bangle

Simple and sweet bracelet to stack with other gold bangles.  Or, wear this alone for a delicate and dainty look. Pretty!





Zigi Girl Elena Sandal

These blue sandals immediately caught Lisa’s eye at Nordstrom – and aren’t too pricey.  We both love the color and the funky style.

Lisa has an amazing eye for fashion and can help you clean out your closet, pair up outfits you wouldn’t have thought of, update your wardrobe or go shopping with you.  If you would like to hire Lisa, she offers a-m-a-z-i-n-g low prices.  Shoot me an email  and I’ll get you set up with her!
