as I write this I’m curled up in my bed watching The Walking Dead, periodically peeking out the window to see how much snow has accumulated. Between Wednesday and today (Saturday… I wrote this Saturday) the weather has worked mightily to piss me off: unscheduled icy windshield 15 minutes before catching a train to work, single digit temps, pipes a-bursting, and now it is snowing yet again. Beside comfy covers, Americone Dream, and Rick Grimes’ bad-assness, the only thing that can bring me any consolation is dreaming up a lovely Spring wardrobe for when I’ve seen the last plow push snow off the streets (out of my life and morning commute) and it’s safe for exposed ankles again.
After fawning over these ModCloth backless booties, I pounced on them when they went on sale. When they arrived (rather quickly so, hats off to you MC), I ugly-cried not only at it’s beauty, perfect fit, and comfortability–but because they’re not exactly for an NYC winter, especially not one so brutal.
When the dread of winters like this became a little too real this weekend (and I watched water gushing into my living room and out the front door, and then sat in 3 hours of darkness thereafter) I took my Austin Bound Booties to a warmer and happier place. I fantasized about the perfect garbs to go with my new shoes this Spring with
some help from total reliance on ModCloth. This is for denim jacket weather we’ve been pining for during these unforgiving winter days. Here are ten ModCloth items I hope to have in my closet to accompany me for fairer weathered days…
1. Swan and All Pants – $44.99
Swan and All Pants
Upon seeing these pants not only did I recognize it shares the same darling print as a dress I currently own (and love) but it’s perfect for those breezy Spring Fridays for work and days off. This spring, I’m looking forward to wearing these with a t-shirt, a cropped denim jacket, and my new Austin Bound Booties.
2. Poetry Glam Dress – $54.99
Poetry Glam Dress
A maxi dress is an important component of a Spring wish list (this list features 2). Right now this dress with a beautiful floral and geometric printed skirt is out of stock! Make sure to head over and click I NEED! Because I and many other maxi dress starved ModLovers need this dress (when funds are available).
3. Let it Grow, Let it Grow! Top – $39.99
Let It Grow, Let It Grow! Top
I’m excited to get my hands on this graphic tunic because I’ve got a pair of mint polka dot ankle zip skinnies that would complement the tee just right. As mentioned earlier, I like to finish most of my looks with a cropped denim jacket–this makes for a playful and colorful look. Sounds just like Spring.
4. Shine That’s Mine Earrings – $12.99
Shine That’s Mine Earrings
What is there to say? I need earrings, you need earrings. Here is a lovely pair for date night and work day alike.
5. Florist’s Apprentice Tee – $24.99
Florist’s Apprentice Tee
Sometimes all you need is an endearing printed tee to enhance your favorite denim pencil skirt. ModCloth’s Florist’s Apprentice Tee featuring a soft v-neck is the perfect piece for livening up the winter neutrals in your closet!
5. Rule of Thumb Flat – $109.99
Rule of Thumb Flat
Confession: Spring is the time when–if you didn’t already know I love mint and most shades between teal and kelly green–you’ll have no further questions on the matter. These flats are perfect for the strolls I plan to take to work in the Spring. And those jewels will ensure my stride will glisten in the sun.
7. Ease Into The Days Dress – $54.99
Ease into the Day Dress
Maxi Dress No. 2: Simple silhouette, strategically color blocked. Dresses like this allow for one more snooze: not only is it easy to coordinate with other colorful things in your closet but well… you don’t really need much to make it shine. Maybe two snoozes.
8. Undisputed Class Watch in Rose Gold/Navy – $119.99
Undisputed Class Watch in Rose Gold/Navy – Grande
It’s real easy to spring (ha!) for floraly and bright patterned accessories for warm weather wear. But I think something like this rose gold watch adds just enough of a classy and classic touch to give your look an air of sophistication. According to the reviews , not only is rose gold/navy combination super elegant but the watch features a large face which will add–on top of all the other wins–a modern touch.
Want it? Hurry! Looks like there’s only one left!
9. Busy Belle Sweater (Coming Soon!) – $69.99
Busy Belle Sweater
Sometimes you want your clothes to work for you. With this statement sweater you won’t have to verbalize how much you appreciate what the bees do for Spring. You, this sweater, cuffed medium wash skinny jeans, white chucks, a breezy Saturday at Brooklyn Flea (because you need to wear this sweater outside). Nuff said.
10. Oh What A Sight Sunglass – $14.99
Oh What a Sight Sunglasses
So I already own these but I cannot wait to wear them again! These sunglasses featuring mint frames–what did I tell you about me and mint?–go with everything and I’m not just saying that. A welcome companion to anything on this list or with your beach wear well into the summer.
Since penning this, ModCloth has added more new items you’ll probably want on your Spring Wish List–in fact, they do so everyday!
