Today...we're mixing and matching more than food! March is here, Spring is just around the corner, and this mama is ready to update a few things in honor of the season. Below is a list of my absolute favorite things for Spring. Whether you want to update your wardrobe, your makeup, your skincare or just a lip gloss...I have something for everyone.
These are Shay's Favorite Things for Spring...
And of course, I'm starting with a wedge. I am nothing if not a wedge girl. I would be embarrassed to show you my collection...however many I have...I think I need both of these pair below to add to my closet (Andrew Shull, I do need them!).
And...shockingly enough...I might actually buy my first pair of flats. I know, right?! I've never purchased a pair of flats in my life (I've been wearing heels since the 7th grade), but these bright pink flats get me excited...so you just might see me with a new spring in my flat-footed step this Spring!
And if you don't have colored cropped jeans, you must stop whatever it is you're doing and buy some. I have 5 pair. Yes. Five. (At this point, I'm really hoping my husband has lost all interest in this post and stopped reading it...). These super cute colored jeans from Gap will update your wardrobe without you spending a fortune (Mom...if you're reading this...you need some! Buy some right this second!).
And this scarf is my new favorite! I wear it all the time!! It's light weight (perfect for spring and summer), and it comes in great colors that really brighten up any outfit.
And now...this is me. Short shorts. I'm 31 years old...eventually, I will probably have to stop wearing short shorts but honestly, I might be 81 before that happens. I love shorts with wedges. But if you're a flats kind of girl, colored shorts with flats are super cute too. I'm not even going to count my colored shorts...let's just say I have enough to wear I have to refer to them by shades of a color (my light pink pair, my neon pink pair, my hot pink pair, etc.). These Old Navy shorts are super cute, super comfy and super affordable.
And since the weather is getting warmer, that means everyone is getting geared up for swimsuit season which means, we have to work out even more. There is just something powerful and motivating about buying yourself new workout gear. Try it and believe me..you'll be working out!
A friend of mine was wearing this perfume a few years ago, and I just kept thinking how fresh and spring-y she smelled. I bought me some and now it's a staple at my house. Plus, it's really affordable and the scent lasts all day. It smells sweet like cotton candy...which, if you're a girl like me, is a great complement to shorts and wedges ;).
I have blogged about this before but let me reiterate myself...these tanning towels are perfection! I use one a week for a wonderfully subtle glow. Trust me...these are so much easier to use than a lotion or cream. You will become a believer!
I've also blogged about my love of Nars the Multiple before too. This little magic stick does everything from highlight, cheek color, eye color or even a little lip color. I like the peachy Orgasm shade but all of the Multiple shades are flattering. This one little stick will totally update your makeup routine.

Speaking of Nars...a girl needs a fresh new lip gloss to usher in Spring...

I bought this Butter London shade and my nails just say "Spring!". Purple is so girly and feminine without being pink. Love it!

I am such a beachy wave kind of girl that I'm always experimenting with new texture sprays...but this BB Surf Spray just might be my favorite. I spray it on my damp hair and let it air dry. It's beachy perfection!

And finally, my love of a good bag...every girl needs a new bag to welcome in a new season. I'm totally head over heels in love with this neon pink Kate Spade tote. No matter what you're wearing, this tote will brighten up your look and your day.
These are my favorite things for Spring! I hope you found something here you need to get you in the mood for warmer weather, outdoor activities and poolside fun. Happy Spring!
