Our Editors Reveal What’s On Their Spring Shopping List

By Carmen Collins

The countdown has begun to that time of year when we pack away our sweaters and break out the swimsuits. Well, at least here in Texas (sorry, Chicagoans.) I’ve been trying to streamline my wardrobe, and this week I took a deep breath and finally gave my closet an overhaul. With my newly freed hangers, I thought it the perfect time to call upon my stylish coworkers to share their favorite wardrobe pieces for Spring 2017. Camille shares feminine pieces that you can dress up or down, while Chanel will be showing off sun-kissed legs and Jenn Rose is focused on hitting the beach. Keep scrolling to shop even more picks from our team, and let us know what new pieces you can’t live without this spring.

Kaiya Dress from Ulla Johnson

I am obsessed with Ulla Johnson – she’s been my favorite designer for like the past six seasons. Her designs are so feminine and pretty, with a modern edge. And she does ruffles! – Jenn Rose

Albury Earrings from Anthropologie

I’m looking to try out more chunky, colorful jewelry this spring, so this fun pair of earrings is right up my alley.  – Carmen

Lees Skirt from Elliette

I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with the up-and-coming Austin-based brand, Elliette. To me, those silk patterns, precious silhouettes and dangerously short hemlines are a welcome break from the sack-like linens that seem to be everywhere. They are still on pre-order, but I’m ready to splurge as soon as possible. – Chanel

Suede Sandals With Ankle Wraps from J. Crew

These will add a feminine, sexy touch to all those cute sundresses, and the heel height looks just right. I’m determined not to sacrifice comfort this spring! – Camille

The Magic Hat from JM Drygoods

This hat is magical because it provides full coverage from the sun and you can roll it up and throw it in a suitcase. – Landrie

Chainstitched Denim from Madewell

Did you know that Madewell offers free chainstitch style monogramming on all of their denim? I’m dying to get a pair of jeans with something cheeky embroidered on the waistband… Any ideas? – Jenn Rose

Toque de Rosa Dress from Mi Golondrina

Mexican embroidery dresses become my daily uniform as soon as the temperature rises beyond 80 degrees. Cristina Lynch makes the prettiest patterns on the comfiest fabric. – Carmen

Gingham Off-The-Shoulder Top from Bergdorf Goodman

My closet is seriously lacking in “going out” tops that can dress up a pair of jeans for a nice dinner or nighttime event, and this one will make a major statement. – Camille

So Chic Bora Bora Swimsuit from Gooseberry Intimates

One of my best friends just turned me onto Gooseberry Intimates, and their one piece in orangey-red is the sexiest swimsuit I’ve ever seen. One thing is for sure: I’ll need to put in some serious gym time before slipping into this thing. – Chanel

Garrett Leight x Claire V. Sunglasses from Claire V.

These are a splurge, but really: is there any wardrobe piece that gets more wear than a favorite pair of sunnies? I love the on-trend cat-eye shape, and the color is just perfect. – Camille

Rosie Cactus Linen Top from DoopsDesigns

Once the weather starts warming up, my entire closet is filled with easy linen tops and dresses. This fun cactus print caught my eye, and I love that it’s handmade.  – Carmen

Semi Matte Lipstick in Schiap from Nars

This is right around the time I ditch the dark lip shades and move into poppy brights. – Landrie

Striped Bodysuit With Front Knot from Zara

I got a silk bodysuit from Zara this past fall, and it’s served as one of the best additions to my wardrobe in a while. This version of the same design has a nautical pattern, perfect for all the seaside lounging I have on my agenda. – Chanel

Conch Halter from Loup Charmant

I am definitely a beach baby and I love this conch halter top from Loup Charmant – SO Brooke Shields in Blue Lagoon. – Jenn Rose

Allison Cropped Jumper from Esby

With the temperature rising in Austin, this locally made linen cotton blend number is a go-to. – Landrie

The Dayak Backpack from Brie Leon

I would carry a straw bag every day if I could. One of my favorite things about spring is putting away my leather bags and switching over to something more summery. How cool is this rattan backpack? – Jenn Rose

Canvas Platform Sneakers from Soludos

These sneakers are the only pair I’ve found that work just as well with jeans and cutoffs as they do with a sundress or bikini. – Carmen

Rodin Olio Lusso Luxury Hair Oil from The Line

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Linda Rodin for our Getting Dressed With series and I’m dying to try her luxury hair oil. Her face oil has an absolute cult following, and her hair oil uses the same approach to tame damaged summertime hair – Jenn Rose
