I'm in major sneakers mode right now! These are one of my current favorites. Everyone needs a pair of fresh white kicks for Spring and these don't disappoint. I love this unisex pair but I also love the women's red and green accented pairs. You know I'm obsessed with green (see more green stuff in this post) so it took considerable self control to go with black/white but I wanted something super versatile and these fit the bill.

This post is all about restyling old favorites - don't you love the pieces you can wear over and over? This metallic midi-skirt has been a real workhorse for me through multiple seasons. I bought it in the late Fall when metallics were in high peak and wore it non stop with chunky sweaters. Mine is no longer available online but I linked a few options for you in the outfit details section as well as in the scroll bar at the bottom of the post. This Derek Lam skirt is one of the closest I've found but if you're not looking to shell out for designer metallics, I also found this one for under $50 - unfortunately most sizes are sold out. Here's another option for a gold metallic pleated skirt - this one is in a longer length and currently on sale for right around $60. Size 0/2 are still available at the time of writing this post.  Now that spring is here you can still get so much wear out of your metallics by simply styling them with lighter colors or spring hues to keep the look current for the season.

I had a little trouble with sizing on this pair as my usual 5.5 kept slipping off the back of my foot. Come to find out that these run a little big (should have read the online reviews and saved myself some back and forth with sizing). Anyway, US size 5 was the magic number for me and with that it's a snug fit, perfect for the warmer months when thin socks are all you need.

My pineapple clutch is still in play! Are you guys getting sick of seeing it? If you missed it earlier you can see it make appearances here and here. This thing holds a phone, keys and lipstick really well and the envelope shape make it great for stashing receipts as well. Pineapple accessories (and lemon!) are de rigeur in spring/summer but don't cross seasons that well, so I like the $12 price point of this one. $12!

My earrings are now on sale and are the perfect accessory for Spring. I love the bright colors and they pretty much work with any outfit and color scheme. No-brainer accessories are always a yes for me. These are now on sale on a promotion that makes them cheaper the more accessories you buy. I saw several other pieces I really liked so check it out - you may make out with some unexpected fun jewelry.
