Emily's Picks: Best Spring Purchases

I really love this skirt.  It is so cute and especially for the price I consider it to be an excellent purchase!  It goes with everything in my very girly wardrobe, and it's so easy to dress either up or down depending on the occasion. 

Every season women update their closets with new items.  In time, some of these items surpass their purchase price in terms of cost per wear value.  Other purchases sit in the closet, only worn a handful of times.  I think it's interesting to look back each season, and examine the pieces that really worked for you.  This is helpful because next season it's more than likely that similar choices will also prove to be your wardrobe workhorses.  Take some time to reflect on what you bought this spring- what worked, what didn't, and why.  Be honest with yourself and try to find trends that you can make into shopping rules for yourself moving forward - the ultimate goal being to love and use everything you buy!  Here are some of the items I have ended up going back to again and again this spring - what were your best picks this season??

This has become a go-to dress for casual summer nights out.  It's the perfect choice when you're going out on a summer evening to a low-key bar or restaurant.  It's also a great choice for date night!

This tote is simple and unassuming but I have worn it so many times I can't even count!  It's the perfect casual but cute tote for running errands, going to the grocery store, shopping with friends, or even walking the dog!  I imagine it would make a great diaper bag too- I use it to carry my puppy's toys, water and snacks on day trips.  Love love love this tote- it's big enough to be very functional, but nice enough to be worn on a stroll in Georgetown.

I admit I am obsessed with these jeans.  I cannot recommend a pair of white jeans enough- they go with EVERYTHING!!!  Enough said.

Another great staple that goes with everything - these wedges are the ultimate casual summer shoe in my book.  They are comfortable but still have that little bit of height that makes your outfit look that extra 30% better.  I am debating getting them in another color for next year.  Wonderful!
