The spring season is here, and with it beautiful fashions to freshen up the winter dark shades that have been worn for what feels like many months. Beginning with the beautiful florals available this season and punctuated by the unique graphic designs, a signature touch can be found almost anywhere without going overboard.

As I perused the collections determining which trends would be worth splurging on and which should merely be appreciated but picked up at a great price, I found myself loving the shift of denim from skinny to straight leg and a bit higher waist. As well, pink always makes me smile and having blazers on hand is always a good idea. All of these trends are worth the investment as you can easily carry them over from season to season for many years to come.

As you will notice below, each trend is revealed with favorites pulled from the runways, followed by hand-picked items you can shop directly with a simple click to learn more about the item.

This season TSLL Spring Shopping Guide is available here on the blog rather than at a separate location as TSLL Shop: Capsule Wardrobe is much more accessible since the blog underwent a remodel back in the fall and will always be available throughout the year, organized by Spring, Fall and All-Season selections that were just updated.

To save a bit of money as you add those few missing investment pieces you been looking for, be sure to use eBatesthe Honey bookmarklet and save items to Shoptagr as well. I especially appreciated Shoptagr this past winter sales season as I was able to watch a handful of items and wait until they dropped to worthwhile prices.

And as the goal of a simply luxurious wardrobe is to keep it simple, but high quality so that the items you invest in with last for many years, this list caught my eye and I wanted to share (although dated 2016, the tips are timeless):

  1. every morning I look forward to your emails. thank you for all you do for my spirit, my style, my search for peace

  2. Shannon, this season’s shopping guide is gorgeous! I love the format, your picks, and thoughts on where to splurge and where to save. Well done.

    I also am loving your boutique–what a great idea. How long have you had this? I feel as though I’ve been missing out.

    1. Maureen, Thank you for the feedback! So happy you found it valuable. The boutique has been up for a few years, but since the remodel last fall is much more accessible. 🙂
