Spring always seems like a jam-packed season for me and Texas in general.  By the first day of summer, we sometimes are already breaking the 100 degree mark, so we try to cram as much outdoor fun into the few months of Spring.  From festivals to wine on bar patios to cookouts and crawfish boils, the outdoor season is here.  I thought I would share a few of my spring essentials that are pretty constant in my weekend wardrobe.  I LOVE swing dresses and they are a weekend wardrobe staple for me year round!  I am loving this striped one I picked up from a local Houston boutique.  It is sleeveless and the material is super lightweight, so it is definitely a dress that will be perfect for spring and those hot summer days to come!  I am always toting around a light jacket in spring.  Most of my spring dresses or sleeveless or a a thin strap, so I like to have a jacket to toss on in the morning or late evening when the temperature dips.   I purposely purchased this H&M denim jacket just a bit big so that I could roll the sleeves up on cool Spring nights.   My Spring shoe essential is definitely a wedge sandal!  I do not wear flat shoes very often, in fact some people never realize just how short I am because I am always in some sort of heel.  Wedges are really comfortable for me!  Some people are stocking up on flip flops this time of year, but I am getting ready to start adding to my wedges collection!   My go-to purse for Spring is a cross-body bag.  They are super light weight and hands-free!  Plus, if you are not wearing your jacket, they provide a great little place to drape it over.  What are some of your Spring essentials?

    I really want everything you’re wearing here. Those shoes, especially! I love this outfit and I’m so glad you’ve linked up with this month’s TTT – it’d be great if you could link back to Work Clothes, I Suppose at the bottom of your post 🙂

    I love the dress! Old Navy has a similar one that I just found earlier this week but the color is sold out online now! I’m 5’7″, so definitely not short but lately I have just not wanted to wear flat shoes. I love my wedges and heels. My two favorite pairs are super comfy!

  3. stripes and denim are like a go to fav and love the cross body bag. Thanks for linking up and hope to see you back
