It’s late-April and it finally feels like spring! It seems like just the other week it was snowing…oh, no wait, it was. Classic Syracuse. Spring here is a constant tease; one day it’s in the high 70s and you’re ready to blind the world with your untanned legs, but the next day is cloudy with a chance of snow, rain, or baseball-sized hail. But it’s almost May (my birthday month) and there are a few things I can’t get through this season without.
I am honestly fashion-illiterate so I’m warning you to not trust most things I say when it comes to style – but I think this one is a given. Who doesn’t love these? Boat shoes have evolved over the years and now they come in every color imaginable, so you really can’t go wrong (or maybe you can, I don’t know).
Since spring showers bring May flowers, you’ll need to invest in a good rain jacket. I know I just told you not to listen to me when it comes to this stuff – but I’ve inspired a few others to buy these jackets so I’m chalking this one up as a win. Mondetta is a private label and their clothes are ridiculously expensive on their website. BUT have no fear – your stingy friend is here – hit up the activewear section at Marshalls or TJ Maxx and you’ll be sure to find these gems.
Spring means it’s finally time to roll the windows down and drive with your music cranked. Nothing kills your vibe quite like listening to the radio and hearing Billy Fucillo’s horrible voice during a commercial break. Liven up those playlists on your phone so you can scream-sing with your friends in the car. Lately I’m digging recent albums by Lukas Graham, Justin Bieber, and Chris Stapleton.
This time of year means spring cleaning. Clean out your closet by getting rid of clothes you hardly wear, or don’t wear at all, and sell them on Poshmark! I’ve made an easy $400 in the last few months getting rid of shoes and clothes that are in good condition. Not to mention you can use your profit and find adorable stuff on there that’s like new or new with tags.
What are some things you’re loving this spring?
