Spring Shopping + Fashion Homework

Spring shopping always excites me, and in this time of global discomfort, I’ve moved this post up in the editorial calendar to provide some levity. With social distancing encouraged or required, browsing frivolous, fun, and festive spring fashion is one of my favorite housebound activities. Plus, online shopping has never made more sense. And, trust me, no one is hoarding the spring line. As you know, my posts generally feature items I have seen in person, but I will break tradition and simply feature the most delightful and colorful (yet wearable) spring fashion March 2020 has to offer us online. Some I have seen in person, some I haven’t. Order away if it makes sense for your personal style, or simply enjoy the browse. Here are some other fashionable tasks I can also assign you for homework…

Fashion Homework

  • Purge that closet, girl!
  • Dust, sweep, and sterilize your closet
  • Reorganize your closet (Do you see a theme?)
  • Purge your underwear drawer
  • Purge your workout wear — just about everyone has too much!
  • Purge your pajama drawer
  • Make a Shopping List of the items you are missing or need to replace
  • Play on Pinterest!
  • Be kind to one another — nothing is more fashionable than kindness
