I feel like January is the month where I do the least shopping ? I went to the mall this past weekend and I kid you not when I say that I didn’t see anything on sale. Plus, all the stores seemed pretty empty. Although winter doesn’t technically end until mid-March, living in Southern California, this weekend it seemed as though it was already here and we were heading into Summer, because the weather hit 90 degrees fahrenheit ?. So, as I made my way through the mall and browsed my favorite shoppings sites online, I realized that it is that time of the year where I no longer want to shop for sweaters (which I love so much) and am ready to start building my Spring wardrobe. So today, I thought I’d start prepping mentally for what I want my spring wardrobe to look like- especially since I’ll be spending a lot of time at home (as opposed to in the office since I’ll still be working from home for a few more months).
Converse Platform Sneakers
The first thing on my list are converse platform sneakers. I love pairing my white converse sneakers (the ones without the platform) with lots of outfits during the summer, so when I saw these I thought they would be a good addition to my upcoming Spring outfits ??♀️
Next on my list are cute sandals! I found these last year at Target (and they still have most sizes in-stock and on clearance) so this year I want to add a few more cute ones. I’m excited to see the new styles they will have in stock (hopefully soon!)
Dresses! I honestly love wearing dresses! At one point in my life I thought that dresses were only meant to be worn for special occasions and boy was I wrong! Now, I want to wear them much more and am excited to add many more to my wardrobe. Some of my favorites are from old navy!
During the spring and summer months I live in basic tops, but try to make them cute ha ha! Does that even make sense? This year I want to grow my very tiny collection. Like I mentioned above, since I’m still working from home I want to be comfy and have tops that I can switch out on a day-to-day basis. Some of my recent favorites are from American Eagle. I love their super-soft collection (top pictured below).
Shorts are another clothing item that I used to only own 1-2 pairs of, but since last year I have grown my small collection. This year I want to do the same lol. I’ll be shopping at American Eagle for cute and comfy shorts, like the ones pictured below. I always try to look for shorts that aren’t too short ? Anyone else? ??♀️
On the topic of shorts, I want to invest in a few more biker-style shorts so that I can wear them on my daily walks and bike rides (which I plan to continue as the days get longer and the weather gets better.)
Ankle Length Jeans
As a petite gal, I’ve realized that the jeans that best flatter my figure are ankle style jeans. I now own about 3 pairs and I find that they are among my favorite jeans in my closet so, I’m hoping that I can add a few more pairs to my collection.
Light Summery Sweaters
Even though the weather will be changing, there will still be nights when it’s a little bit chilly and I want to wear some sort of sweater but not the super warm cozy-type so, I want to invest in sweaters that are light weight and feel comfy and cute!
Updated Mom Jeans
Another type of jeans that are very popular right now and that I don’t think will be going out of style anytime soon are mom jeans! I love me a good pair of mom-jeans and am hoping to find a pair or two more for the coming months!
Finally, the last piece of clothing on my list are mi-di skirts (like the one in the picture below). I’ve seen these styled all over Pinterest and I love them! They are a good extension of dresses and super comfy and versatile!
So, there you have it. This year I want to take a more organized approach when it comes to my shopping. I feel that in previous years I used to just buy things because I thought they were cute but never took the time to style them or think about where I would wear them to. This time around, when buying things I plan to create actual outfits for them and ensure I actually wear them and they not only sit in my closet.

Until next time!
