dreaming about spring staples…


one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve

As per usual the winter temperatures here are unpredictable and somewhat confusing! Recently we had a very warm and rainy 70 degree day in the middle of January! Before that we had one of the longest stretches of below freezing weather that I’ve ever experienced in Raleigh.

Despite the rollercoaster that is the weather, I’ve found myself browsing some of my favorite online stores to see what is coming out for spring. I can’t wear most of it as my baby bump is pretty much at the point of stretching out regular clothes to the point of no return, but a girl can dream can’t she?

I haven’t had as much luck finding cute maternity clothes this time around (maybe it’s just the season?) so I’m looking forward to getting back into my regular clothes come summertime. My boys were both winter babies (December and February) so it’s a whole new ballgame to have a spring baby in May. I’m glad that I won’t have to bundle everyone up just to go outside and I know I will be grateful for the fresh air when that time comes!

Anyway, if you have a spring break planned, or are just eyeballing some new items to add to your wardrobe for when the temperatures warm up, there are lots of great basics available right now. I love a simple crew neck tee for any day of the week, and I found so many cute striped options.

I forgot to include these jeans in the graphic, but they look pretty perfect!

p.s. another really cute stripe top, and a cute swim cover up if you are heading somewhere warm this spring!

    I love all the the front tops! I’ve seen some cute ones at J.Crew too. Enjoy the beautiful weather! Talk of 70 degrees makes me want to wear lemon prints and gingham. It’s kinda sorta almost spring! xAllie http://www.theallthatglittersblog.com

    I love these picks! Especially the Oh Hey Vacay! How do you manage to juggle your blog with the demands of being a mommy?

    Love these picks! For cute maternity clothes you should check out Seraphine. They’re based in the UK, but usually have inexpensive flat-rate to the US. I also had a great experience with their return policy. I ordered a bunch of maternity dresses last spring and nursing dresses this winter. 🙂
