The weather in North Carolina has been absolutely amazing, despite the pollen haze that we’ve been in. It’s that time of year where it’s nice and warm, but not yet humid. And that has me breaking out all of my spring fashion favorites. With this spring, it feels even more bright and optimistic since we’re starting to see the start of a semi-vaccinated society, it does also mean I’m starting to think what I’ll wear to be around people more consistently. Here are 5 spring essentials that I’ve been reaching for already this year.
Check out what I was (and am still) eyeing for early spring here!
5 Spring Essentials for Women

While I’m a big advocate of sun protection year-round, spring is that opportunity to break out my favorite straw hats. I don’t mind making an investment in hats that provide sun protection and are fashionable. Two of my favorites are this Brixton one and this one from Lack of Color.
To me, caftans are a great option for re-entering society after a year of not wearing real pants. They’re lightweight, flowy, and have those elegant wide sleeves. I love this one from Grace Atwood’s The Drop collection. I didn’t really jump on the tie-dye trend but could absolutely be persuaded with this gorgeous one.
These gold sandals from Amazon are absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to wear them in the coming days. They come in a few different color options. This is another good, neutral pair that works well with dresses, skirts, and white denim. P.S. You can shop this leopard top here.
You know I love a good pair of statement earrings. I do consider gold a neutral color and I don’t mind wearing loud prints with statement earrings. With that in mind, my go-to earrings are these Mignonne Gavigan Mini-Madelines.
Whether you like a smaller bag or a larger one, straw bags are one of my favorites to break out for the spring and into summer. For a larger option, this one is stunning. I picture it for a picnic or for a beach day. I am swooning over this option from a local Raleigh shop, Valerosa Boutique. And then this Amazon straw handbag is so cute and for more of a splurge, this one with tassels is effortless sophistication and fun.
