Late March Monday Must-Haves
Happy Monday! The first official weekend of spring has now passed! I don't know about you, but I'm beyond ready for the weather to warm up. We'll finally be able to put off all our commitments outside, lounging by the pool instead of sitting in bed and binging Netflix to fend off the freezing winter cold. At least we'll be getting some vitamin D.
As of now, the weather is still a little nippy, so I'm guilty of spending the majority of my weekend in bed. Instead of watching Queer Eye and Big Mouth for the millionth time, though, I did some ~screen shopping~ (instead of window shopping, get it?)
Just because skies are still a little grey doesn't mean you can't get into the spring spirit! Here are my seasonal/transitional must-haves for this Monday that will most definitely be getting me through the week.
Subtle Graphic Tee
Are you lost in Japan? This T-shirt begs to differ. Rep your favorite soda brand with this laid back, easy T-shirt. The weather really isn't optimal for a look without a jacket, but this would look so good with just about any jacket. Plus, the subtle red adds a nice pop of color. P.S. Urban Outfitters is having a limited time only/online only sale – 25% off shorts, graphic tees & UO sandals.
Sneaks with a Subtle Platform
Nike is having suuuuch a moment right now. A few months back, they announced the launch of a campaign to revamp their signature Air Force 1's in collaboration with Travis Scott. In mid-January, Nike released The Reimagined 1 collection, in which women redesigned Air Force 1's and Air Jordan 1's for other women. The empire has proven that they're going to keep slaying the game as spring draws nearer. What better way to combine the comfy and coziness of winter and the colorfulness of spring than with a brightly-colored, vintage-inspired sneaker?
Structured Bamboo Bags
These Cult Gaia handbags are honestly more like small, wearable pieces of art than bags. Such an intricately designed bag needs to be taken care of, so don't try to stuff your whole life into this bag. Despite the lack of things you can pack into it, the Lilleth Bag will truly elevate any look.
Cropped, wide-leg denim is all the rage this spring season. I've been eyeing this Topshop pair. They're high-waisted, which is super flattering on so many people. I specifically love Topshop because they have an extensive denim selection and are more affordable than many other denim brands. Plus, on a general note, a wide legged denim look can easily be dressed up or dressed down.
Sunglasses in funky shapes have been in for quite some time now, but this pair takes the craze to the next level. The shape of these Illesteva glasses is super retro, and I love how the lenses are transparent so you can see your eyes. Even if your eyes are 💩 brown like my own, you should still show them off, because like, why not?
