Spring Picks for the Budget Girl (part 1)

Can you smell it? That is the smell of smoke coming out of the ears of fashion editors as they list their top picks for Spring. They'll be sure to give you a list of extraordinarily beautiful and outrageously expensive items you can't afford. Or at least most of us can't afford.

I love my family for many reasons but especially because they always supply me with great ideas for posts (thanks Marissa!). Here are my top picks for the warmer months. I'm so excited that it's getting warmer! These items will take you into summer and can be mixed and matched.

In order to prevent this post from becoming a Russian novel, I'm going to split it up. The bold items below are contained in this post. I'll follow up with other posts for the additional items.

1. a solid color flowy maxi skirt
2. wide leg jeans
3. anything 70's inspired
4. biker jacket (leather or faux leather, whatever fits your budget)
5. a sheer sweater (for layering)
6. neutrals in pale tans or blushes (pants or skirt)
7. a Breton striped top
8. bold color tops and bottoms (vary this depending on your life)
9. a pair of neutral booties that can be dressed up or down, heel height is a preference
10. white pants, skirt, or dress
1. cat eye sunglasses
2. big bangle bracelets

3. anything rose gold
4. obi belts or wide sashes
5. colorful scarves

6. lady like bags
