Top 20 {preppy} Spring Essentials!

Top 20 preppy necessities

Pin It
This dress is absolutely to-die for. The scalloped hem line is such a clean cut and the dress is simple enough to wear with many different kinds of accessories such as a blazer or a chunky necklace. They didn't have the peach in my size, so I ordered the navy one for my graduation. Can't wait for it to get here!

Everybody needs an everyday earring. These Kate Spade earrings are their signature bow design, and they're subtle enough for an everyday look. 

I've been wanting a pair of these shoes for years! Nothing beats a good leather sandal, especially for walking on the beach during spring break or strolling through the outlets.

Gingham is definitely growing on me. A few months ago I would have told you that the pattern looked like a table cloth, but recently, I have seen these collared shirts come back in style. And the soft pink color puts me in the spring mood!

Bright and/or neutral lips are definitely a must this spring. MAC makes hundreds of colors to choose from, so a peach, light pink, or nude are all great choices for Spring. My favorite is Impassioned. 

The hottest statement necklace of the season. It's the perfect way to add just the right amount of fun to any outfit. 

Your wardrobe changes for the warm weather so why shouldn't your nail polish palate? Just like the gingham, light pink reminds me of spring. Essie Status symbol is the perfect everyday nail polish color this season.

I bought a pair of Kate Spade aviators recently, and I wear them all. the. time. Even when it's not that sunny outside... that's how much I love them. 

I don't know what all the hype is about these bags, but I think I'm going to see. It's a very durable bag, that comes in a variety of sizes and colors. I prefer the more simple and sophisticated solid colors. It's the perfect work bag for the professional woman, or for me, the soon-to-be college student. I can't wait to put it to the test!

I have to say, I'm a little disappointed that I just found out about her company recently. Seersucker has always been a favorite fabric of mine, even when I was little! It's so nice to see a line of absolutely adorable dresses for a more mature audience. Definitely a staple for the many upcoming spring soirees.

If you call yourself preppy, you have to own a pair of croakies. Not only are they functional and practical for your new KS aviators, but they're also super cute! 

Just bought this skirt at the outlets! I'm completely in LOVE with it. It nips at the hips for a figure-flattering look. The color just screams spring.

I grew up with wicker furniture, so this new style has a kind of nostalgic tone for me. It took me some getting used to, but I have fallen in love with this clutch. It's just so different, and what better time to experiment with new things than a new season? 

These shorts come in a slew of bright colors. Shorts are obviously a staple for spring, so why not make them fun?

I mean.... they're Jack Rogers. Need I say more?

I can think of a few times where this would really come in clutch. At the beach, a party, weddings. AND it keeps your hair looking good while protecting your skin from the sun. It's a win-win!

Something about a pair of solid chinos paired with a pair of Keds just make me love spring. When I was younger, I probably had a dozen pairs of Keds, but they were all white. I love that they are coming back in style, with cuter colors and designs. Kate spade even has her own Keds design line!

Okay, so where can I find a Kiel James Patrick? He and Sarah Vickers are so perfect!  AND their line of bracelets are perfect. My favorite bracelet is from the Vickers Bow Collection, called the Allie Hamilton. Named after The Notebook? What could be more perfect?!

If I'm going to go into debt, I blame Kate Spade. I need. I repeat, need a KS tote bag. AND my birthday's coming up soon so *hint*hint* madre y padre.

Perfect arm candy. The bracelet is an ideal balance between statement and subtlety. If I had this, I would probably wear it every second of every day.

What are your favorite spring essentials?

Stay Classy!
