Spring Fever

Ol' Mother Nature has been pulling some not so funny tricks with the weather lately.  When it was 80 degrees and sunny I immediately switched over my closet and said "adios" to all of the black and grey.  Now, it's rainy and 50 degrees and I'm ready to wear sandals and dresses.  Did I mention that I HATE being cold (except when it's August and I'm ready to wear sweaters and boots)?

I went on a shopping binge last week.  I have been searching for the perfect pair of tan wedges that are versatile enough to wear with dresses, shorts or jeans.  I found them!  

Fortunately, I happened to have a 20% off coupon for the store for my upcoming birthday.  

Here's the unfortunate part.  I was wearing jeans and asked if they had a dress I could try on to see how they would look.  Of course they had a dress...and a belt to go with it!  See where I'm going with this?  I tried and tried to find a picture of the dress ( I couldn't simply take one because my camera is still broken) but it turns out I may have purchased a one-of-a-kind!  This is the belt:

I would like to say that I stopped there.  I didn't.  Instead, I stopped at Hand In Pocket on the way home.  Remember the Best Little Black Dress EVER and how H.I.P. always has EXACTLY what I need?  That day they had the exact tank tops, cardigan, and skirt that I wanted needed.  

This tank is so amazing that I think I'm going to order it in every color they make

I bought this entire outfit except for the belt, which I'm kind of regretting as I write this post.  I got the cardigan in 2 colors-light teal and white.  WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME???

I'm really happy with my purchases.  I still need to fill in with some cute tops and I really want a cute chambray denim skirt like this one from Old Navy

They don't have it in my size online, but I'm about to start calling around town (jewelry biz is a little slow, can you tell?)

I know not everyone sees the change in season as an opportunity to reinvent their closet.  Some people approach it with reason and buy a few things to fill in.  What key pieces will you be buying this spring?
