My Spring Wardrobe Haul

By nature I'm a mindful (not an impulsive or compulsive) buyer. Lately I try to be a minimalist ... buying only what I need, not more than what I need. Despite hauling in less, clothes wear out. So recently I added 3 new wardrobe basics:

1) L.L. Beam Tee, Crew Neck, Short Sleeves - I bought 3 teal colored, combed cotton t-shirts to replace my blues that are tattered. But I had to check several retailers to find the bright colors of spring. Surprisingly, Old Navy, GAP and Uniqlo are only carrying neutral colors this year, namely white, black, gray, navy and very pale pink. What's up with only neutral colors for spring tees?😮 When are we supposed to wear bright colors???

2) Uniqlo Geometric-Print Short-Sleeve Bra Dress - In Summer I adore Uniqlo's bra dresses. A full support bra is built-in for comfort. The cut and fit are ladylike. The dress is flattering yet easy-to-wear just like shorts. I have 4 sleeveless bra dresses in different floral prints and colors. But I need at least one with short cap sleeves for early spring. LIVE, this dress is an off-white light shade in a super cute geometric print. The style is crisp and casual smart. 

And finally ... the last item I bought was a pair of shorts:
3) Uniqlo Cotton/Linen Relaxed Shorts - How adorable, with details like a stretchy, elastic waistband, 2 side pockets and a feminine tie-bow. They are relaxed but slenderizing, just what I need for a summer barbecue!

Thankfully, I have sneakers, comfortable walking shoes, cozy sandals, light scarves and cotton sweaters that are in great shape, so I am set for the warm temperatures to begin!

What's on your shopping list for Spring and Summer? And Aussie friends, you have Autumn ... any goods you need?

  1. I'd love a pair of those shorts, Debbie, so will keep checking with Uniqlo! Going into Autumn, I have just bought a light quilted jacket - in a neutral - taupe. There are a lot of neutrals around, I have noticed this also.

    1. Trish, I'm excited for you that Uniqlo opened in Brisbane too. Yippee!!! Now you can buy their affordable, well-make LifeWear clothing too. Sure it's a marketing term, but with Uniqlo's clothing, pretty spot on!

      I got the navy with stripes because I like to pair it was bright, colorful t-ships, but as you can click to see, there solid colors too, about 7 different hues. I care more about changing my tops then I do my shorts.

  2. Ꮃoah! I'm really loving the template/theme of
    this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot оf times it's difficult to get thаt "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal.

    I must say that you've done a amazing job with this.
