Spring Fashion!

Spring is pretty much here. The snow is nearly all melted in Minnesota, and that means people are anxious to get on their tank tops, shorts, skirts and flip flops, and I'm right on board!

Lately, I've found some CUTE good deals, that I had to share.

Just last week, I found this ruffle top from Ann Taylor Loft, and then upon a trip to Banana Republic where all sale items were 40% off, I found this vest to pair with it for $17.99 (the vest isn't featured on their website anymore, sorry!)

I put low lights for the first time in my hair recently, so weird to see it this dark!

I also recently found this Tunic at New York and Company. I don't normally shop at this store, but I love their basic body shaper tank tops, so when I went to pick up a white one, I spotted this and knew I had to have it (currently sold out on their website, so no link, but check back!)

I'm a huge fan of wearing capris like these ones from Macy's in the summer and spring, so I thought this Tunic would go perfect with them! Plus, I feel tunics are flattering to a middle heavier figure like mine.

I also picked up this simple, floral strapless dress from Target, that I think will pair great with a denim jacket, or my gray boyfriend blazer. It will be great for a little dressier outfit for running around on hot summer weekends! It comes in various designs, including a Navy Blue with White Polka Dots that's also really cute.

The biggest thing I've noticed about spring fashions, is that you shouldn't be paying full price for anything! Everyone wants your money because consumers are so frugal right now.

Ann Taylor Loft is always having sales, last week the whole store was 40% off when I went in. Personally, I think you're wasting your money if you ever buy anything full price at that store!

New York and Company has a ton of e-mail club coupons, so sign up for their e-mails! Banana Republic and Gap keep offering deals like 40% off clearance, as I mentioned above, or 40% off Wednesdays, where one regular priced item is 40% off on that particular day of the week.

This weekend Ben and I are going to Boston, and I'm hoping to find some fun finds there as well. Although, it's hard for me to justify buying clothes in other states when we're so lucky to not have tax on clothes in Minnesota--they're a necessity, hello!! ;)

What are your spring fashion finds? What can you not wait to wear come Summer?
