Cotton-Cashmere Ruffle Cardigan
Cardigans are pretty much a mainstay of my wardrobe. This version from J. Crew has feminine ruffle trim and the short-sleeve style means I can wear it all spring and summer long. It’s a great substitute for a t-shirt to wear with shorts or jeans, or the perfect layering piece to wear with dresses and skirts. It’s available in several colors, but I’m loving this bright orange.

Dahlia Floral Chiffon Top
Forever 21 is a great place to find ultra-affordable feminine blouses. This floral chiffon top is a pretty way to usher in spring. I’ll wear it now under cardigans and jackets and on its own when the weather warms.

Bamboo Dawn Skirt
It’s becoming clear that I’m slightly obsessed with prints, patterns and bright colors this season, they’re just the thing to update the basics I already own. I love the nature-inspired print and the slouchy silhouette of this skirt. Whether I wear it with a tank top and flat sandals or a ladylike cardigan and heels, this skirt is destined to be a favorite.

BCBGMAXAZRIA Print Jersey Dress
When the weather gets warm, there’s nothing easier than wearing a dress. I love the color combination of apple green and gray on this flattering dress. Worn alone with sandals, it’s an easy, casual look; add a cardigan and pumps and it’s ready to go to work. Plus, the jersey material makes it an easy dress to pack for weekends away.

The SAK Silverlake Convertible Satchel
Not only chic, but also practical, this clever bag transforms from a satchel to a slouchy hobo. The yellow saffron color manages to be colorful, yet neutral, making it the perfect candidate for my new everyday bag.

Color-Block Beaded Necklace
The oversized baubles and bright colors make this necklace fun to wear. It dresses up a plain t-shirt or adds a playful touch to a dressier look.
