Spring is right around the corner. As soon as the J. Crew March catalog comes out I’m officially in Spring mode. This years is probably the best J. Crew catalog I’ve ever seen. Tons of bright colors and bold prints, perfect in every way. If you can keep it to just five items to purchase for spring, these have got to be them.

1: No. 2 Pencil Skirt.

Iconic and easy to wear, a pencil skirt looks good on any shape or size. I love the texture of this lace and navy (or red) is so great for spring. It’s perfect paired with a light sweater, striped tee, or gingham button down.

2: Scalloped Shorts.

Do I need to explain why you need these shorts? I love the scallop detail added to this super casual look. Plus, they aren’t too short to wear to any and every occasion.

3: Sun Kissed Trouser.

This might be the best yellow I have seen so far this season. Tailored perfectly and hitting at just the right spot on the ankle, these are ideal for brunch.

4: Shirred Maxi.

Who doesn’t like maxis? This one has just the right thickness and just the right amount of volume. You can see it paired perfectly with a coral button down tied at the waist on the cover of the March catalog.

5: Double Strand Resin Necklace.

To be honest I don’t usually splurge on jewelry but this is necessary for spring and summer. I always love double strand necklaces but this one is a whole new obsession. Great color pairing and perfect length!
