Spring clothes, what do I need in my wardrobe

Spring clothes, what do I need in my wardrobe

After we were so spoiled with wonderful spring weather last month, I realized that I had to look in my closet for clothes that I need for spring. Need! As if I don’t have much in my closet. But I’ve been buying much more conscious clothes for a while now. Much more second-hand and I just better think about what I buy. So instead of just buying what I like, I really wanted to see what’s been missing in my wardrobe.

This post was written by myself but I was approached by JD Williams to write something for them. What I wanted to write, I could decide for myself. Well, of course, I think it’s totally great to work with an English company!

What spring clothes do I need?

The first thing I need, in quotation marks, is a trench coat. Previously I wanted to save for a Burberry trench coat but then I really wanted the original and that color is simply not for me. So you then you have a very expensive coat, and the color looks awful on you! That’s stupid right. So searching for a nice trench coat.

Of course some spring shoes are needed!

Then slingbacks. Totally trendy coming season. The slingback always has something movie stars like, super feminine. So I want a pair of slingbacks this spring.

Jackets and cardigans I actually have enough but colored tees and pullovers not so much. So that’s what I went looking for.

Statement earrings always keep pulling on me. Well I have a lot, but most gold colored. I would like to include a few statement colored earrings.

And finally I want a jumpsuit. I had one but it got ugly. Never thought that I would like a jumpsuit to wear. And never thought that I would find them so beautiful. I think orange is my color this season!

What do you think of my wish list? Have you got items that you really want? Are you going to by spring clothes new or pre owned?

This is where I linkup!

    I’d love to see you in that orange jumpsuit! I really like all the slingback shoes and that pink graphic tee is my color!

      It will probably be a black one, although that orange one is a stunner! Ah slingbacks are so beautiful right!

    Hi, Nancy
    I like your serendipitous spring wish list…because that’s what it is: it’s fun and it’s a wish list, not a list of needs! I have a beige trench coat that I’ve had forever – very classic and basic. I will still have it forever. The printed trench coats on your list are fun, but will they be useful with everything?…maybe not practical but Whooo! I assume you already have a good basic pair of heels, but slingbacks are so classy and flattering, especially in colors and prints. Maybe a bright color will add that pop you’ll need in basic or monochromatic outfits. Statement earrings are a must if you don’t have any yet. It’s a good bet to add color with your accessories because it will come in handy often. Since you loved and wore out a jumpsuit, it’s definitely a need to fill. Anything I’ve loved and worn out, I look to replace with something the same or similar. It’s already been time tested. So I think you may have gone from wish to need, in order. 😉
    Thanks for the inspiration to write a wish list for spring!

      Thank you very much Angie. I agree on the trench coat. I have always loved them but in spring and summer I actually don’t even wear a coat. And a jumpsuit is one item I really want and will wear. Also the colorful earrings, because I think they make a huge different in your face if you have the perfect color!

    Some lovely pieces here Nancy. Orange is great on you too. I’m loving a lot of the trends out there at the moment xx

      I especially like the beige trend. But I have to figure out how I can wear it to the best as it is not a good color for me. I already spotted some silk midi skirts that I love!

    Those coats are awesome Nancy. I tend to go for jackets most of the time, since they are more practical for cycling to school, but those coats….omg. A girl can always dream, right? Though, just like you, I have been more conscious about what to buy, so maybe buying something I can actually wear a lot makes more sense than buying something that looks fabulous, fantastic, feminine on a hanger in my hall…….Love, Lieske

      You are so right. And I won’t probably buy a trench coat because or it is to cold for one, or to warm! Hahaha.

    Some lovely items there. What I want and what I need are the two statements Mr Mc makes what I say “I so love that, I want it” So over the years if I think he may object my statement is “oooooooh I really need that” (he is a darling really as he never objects). Love clothes and love my Mr. Love – Jill x

    Nice picks Nancy, the sling backs are so pretty! My feet don’t really get on with sling backs for some reason. I haven’t thought much about spring yet – need to!

    What a great post Nancy. I agree we always need jackets and cardigans as layering pieces. I love the selection of sandals that you chose. I am going to do mostly secondhand shopping and very little shopping in general. I seem to have pretty much everything I need in my closet already. But I do love this source of inspiration.
    Also, by the way. Burberry does a beautiful coat in navy. And the children’s department carries it for much much less. Just saying,,

    You’ve chosen some fun bright pieces.

    Honestly, if I never bought another thing in my life I’d still have too much.

    Since I thrift regularly for my store I stumble upon things all the time. I just picked up a few jumpsuits. One still has the tags on it. I haven’t decided if I will sell them all yet or not.

      Ha ha, you want to keep them all? I have to sell, or give away, first before I buy. Not enough space anymore!

    Knowing the trend helps a lot when you are choosing the clothes for a specific season and could keep you updated. Thanks for such interesting and fresh outfits for this season…

    Huh, apparently I ‘need’ everything you need!! I like the way you use graphic tees with dressier pieces. I copied that idea by pairing a graphic tee with a tulle skirt. A la Nancy!! Those shoes, those shoes!! Polka dots and kitten heels. Come to mama!

    Such a great wish list, I want so many of those pieces! I’m loving that orange jumpsuit!

    Good wish list, Nancy. I’ve already purchased several things. I haven’t been thrifting much, yet, though. My daughter and I went last week, but she wasn’t feeling too well.

    Can’t go wrong with any of these, especially that classic trench coat. So versatile, classy, and never goes out of style.

    I love your picks here, Nancy! I shop “off season” all year round, and stash my spring/summer purchases in my closet until it’s time to change over my clothes for the season…which will be happening this weekend! Exciting, as I’ve forgotten most of what I’ve bought, ha ha!
