Just a few things + brands that are on my radar as of lately.  Be prepared… this post will probably make you want to shop.  (Is it just me or does Spring just make you want to buy, buy, buy!?)  Sorry about that.  But seriously.  You need everything in this post.  These are some of my absolute favorite things.  While they won’t change your life, they will make it a bit prettier.

Joie has the most beautiful lace pieces, lately.  I particularly love this top (which I bought.)  The silhouette is slightly cropped, so it’s perfect for layering with longer tanks, fitted dresses, or high-waisted skirts + pants.

Chinti + Parker has become a new favorite for good, quality, cotton basics.  Their cotton is heavenly.  It’s all organic, and luxuriously soft.  This dress made it into my closet, and I absolutely love it.  I’ll wear it to work and happy hour now – and over my swimsuit this summer!

I ordered this bracelet from BaubleBar (in white with pink, and please note – I do work for them,) a while ago and it finally came.  I’m never taking it off.  It is the best bracelet ever – delicate chains are perfect for layering.

I have a little Lush obsession.  Every few weeks, I go in to load up on bath bombs.  (Taking a bath is one of the only effective ways I seem to be able to de-stress… so I take them often.)  But I always end up taking home something else.  My latest two obsessions are the R+B Finishing Cream and the Creme Anglaise Body Cream.  Good god, their products smell way too good.  I’m addicted to everything in their store!

These TopShop dresses are perfection.  I have the peach and the aqua.  Know those days where it’s hot, sticky, and you don’t know what you’ll wear?  Just throw on one of these with some fun jewelry and great flat sandals.  Good to go.

Lastly, I’m having a major moment with rings.  I need these Gorjana Stackable Rings in my life now… they’ll layer so beautifully with the rest of my rings!  Gorjana has the prettiest stackable rings – and they’re pretty affordable, too.

PS – I’m over on Small Shop, today… sharing my favorite ways to stay inspired!

    So many of my favorites detailed here! Joie can really do no wrong in my eyes, Chinti + Parker do stripes SO well, Gorjana is a personal favorite, and well Bauble Bar speaks for itself. Also, the Topshop shift is so good and I have to try some Lush products!

    I’m loving the lace – just bought something similar and can’t wait to wear it.  The Spring totally makes me want to shop – something about the warmer weather and new beginnings = new wardrobe!
