As you may or may not know, my PC has been sick for over a week.
Croupy sinus stuff that has recently settled into his chest has put a damper on his interest and energy to do our usual weekend running around and shopping. As a result, I have had to take matters into my own hands…enter shop Spring at www.shopspring.com, a one-stop shopping experience that features over 800 brands in one neat, little webpage or app with an edgy, boutique-y feel.
Best part about shopping Spring, is I could do it in my pjs right from bed as I nursed my Prince back to health. I decided to do a little window shopping until payday and put together a couple of looks using Polyvore to create my sets.
The first ensemble is something that I think every woman could wear easily.
Take a gander.
The #1 piece was the first I discovered and instantly fell in love with on the shop Spring site. A great, marled gray dress, described as an oversized, flossy wool (thus the sheep above) and cotton blend jumper.
Doesn’t it look divinely comfortable and warm, but oh-so stylish?
Even though we are shopping Spring, it is still winter in my neck of the woods. I love the longish, above-the-wrist length of these sleeves but thought I might still be chilly wearing this dress without some kind of warm wrap. I scoured the “racks” of coats and jackets, and found so many pretties but the colors of this #2, River Island blue block draped cape seemed to work so well with the jumper.
Well, it, too, jumped into my cart.
By now, PC was beyond counting sheep so I couldn’t get up out of bed for fear of waking him. Decided to shop for shoes, and tights and maybe a shiny little bauble or two. Elena tights, #3, Dandylion Tres lodge booties, #4. Mystical Earth Amulet pendant, #5.
At this point, PC rolled over in bed so I laid very still and played possum until he was snoring again. Then the shopping spree continued.
We have been invited to a couple of Super Bowl parties. And I don’t have a thing to wear. So I switched gears from dressy looks to something more casual.
I discovered this FUN graphic Bow and Drape sweatshirt w/ gold sequins, #1 and made it the foundation for my football watching outfit.
Goal digger…get it? Goal post, kick a goal, you know, football?
There’s nothing like a great fitting pair of boyfriend jeans to provide casual chic while you are ‘kicking it’. Toss in some metallic snakeskin pumps, #3, a Cortina gold cuff, #4 and a fun football shaped bag by Belvah H. Bags, #5 and you are sure to score.
Now to begin the countdown til payday – Friday, so I can move these things out of my cart and into my closet.
If you are looking for that special little statement piece to build a memorable outfit around, encourage your PC to have an afternoon nap, and shop Spring.
Or download the app, here.
That way shop Spring is as close as your pocket or purse for those long commutes to work, soaks in the tub, or slow-TV evenings.
Wouldn’t want to wish the croup on your husband.
Hugs and kisses,
