Spring adds new life and new beauty to all that is…and I CAN’T WAIT!!!!


Here are some of my favorite things for this spring for the modern mama.  I tend to lean towards a more natural but on-trend style. While, I prefer to shop small, you’ll also find some great amazon finds too! None of the boutiques are affiliates and I have not been asked to promote any of the following.  The amazon links are affiliated, meaning I will get a few pennies if you buy from my link.   I am also a Beautycounter consultant have have highlighted two of their products. Please feel free to leave a comment for any other great finds you come across!

I’ve included all my favorites from head to toe.  Most links are in the title, but if I’ve found a few that are similar I’ve provided links in the corresponding paragraph.

I have either bought or really really want to buy all of the following!


  1. Clogs

Clogs are back!!! And cuter than ever… the hardest part is picking a color! This clog, from Lotta From Stockholm, is the classic and original for clogs.  You can find similar clogs from other brands that may save you some $.  If you go with the Lotta and are in between sizes, I’d size up.  They are European sizing so be sure to use a chart to see where you’d fall.  For example, I normally wear a size 8 and bought a 39.  The wooden sole is actually quite comfortable and you can tell by the quality these are made with the greatest craftsmanship in Sweden.



2.  Cut Out Booties

Perfect spring time bootie! More airy and light with the fun cut out.  They are a little lower than the ankle boot and are nice and comfortable.  Perfect for the ever-changing spring weather. The ones pictured below are more on the expensive side by Free People. Here is the link: Free People: Royale Flat in White. Here is a link to a much cheaper similar pair from Amazon: Cut Out Booties.


3. The Slide Sandal

I love the easy comfy fit of these sandals.  Dress them up or down they can pair with almost anything! I love the look of these with the new style of straight legged jeans (see below for the jeans).




1. Vertical Striped Shirt

One of my favorite trends is the very flattering vertical stripes.  I love the texture of this one and the wide sleeves.


2. Linen tank top Vienna

This adorable tank is from Not Perfect Linen and is handmade in their small studio.  I love the casual but cute pattern and flattering cut. I would love to see this under some overalls!




3.  Hooded Button Up

How adorable is this?!!! Buttons. Hood. Waistline. And that pocket! ❤



4. Jeans Jacket

Who can resist a good jeans jacket? The perfect weight for spring time–not too hot and not too cold.  Here is a link to the one below from the Fancy Frills Boutique. I also love the affordable options from Target.







5. Off The Shoulder Top

I would be all over this if I could find a good strapless bra for my nursing ladies.  I have tried so many options so let me know if you have a good one! Then I can finally get this!



  1.  High-Rise Released Hem Straight Leg Jeans

I love the feel and comfort of these high-rise straight legged jeans.  I love a good skinny jean, but this is way more comfortable.  The fringe at the bottom is going to be another great spring trend I’m on board with! The picture here is from Target and I love the look but the pair I got had the knee holes rip like crazy within a week.  But here is the link to the target ones anyways: target jeans. If you can afford to spend some $ on jeans then I highly recommend this pair from Madewell…made to last and they are gorgeous!!! Made well jeans. Lastly, here is a link to a similar pair without the tares from amazon: Amazon Jeans.



2.  Button Day Dress

Every spring needs a good day dress.  I love the sea foam color of this one and the buttons are adorable.  This spring the longer skirt length is in.  Dress it up for a date night or down for a trip to the store. If you’re still nursing, these buttons are a must!

3. Classic Caftan

The ideal lounge wear to be both extremely comfortable and cute.  These Caftans from Dwell + Slumber are impossibly soft.  I love this olive green but they also have beautiful floral prints and other basic colors. Here is another link to a cheaper version from Amazon: Caftan.



4. Zinnia Stripe Dress

It even has pockets!



  1. Sun Hat

Nothing says spring like a great sun hat.  I love the neutral color of this one! It will go with everything! Hats are my favorite way to glam up any look.  I was really nervous to start wearing hats but now I can’t stop! They are also great for masking unwashed greedy hair…which for me is more often than not!

2. Glow Shimmer Oil and Sugar Body Scrub in Lemongrass

Get a natural looking tan the safe way.  I love this glow shimmer oil, made with nourishing jojoba, grape-seed, and sesame oils, absorbs immediately into your skin to deliver a radiant, sun-kissed glow. Use it to help transition your winter skin into that sun kissed glow with safe ingredients.

The Body Scrub will polish your skin to a healthy-looking glow.  Made with brown sugar to buff away dull skin, and mineral-rich evening primrose, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and sunflower oils to leave skin looking supple and smooth. Antioxidant-rich acai berry supports the appearance of healthy skin, and a mix of pure citrus and lemongrass oils leaves a fresh and invigorating scent.


3. Gold hoop earrings

Easy to pair with anything.


4. Sunglasses

I might be biased because the style of these are called Wyatt (my son’s name) but I love them!



5. Gathre Maxi Square

My favorite thing to bring for picnics, to the beach, or just out in our yard. This gorgeous mat is stain resistant, easy to clean, and well…gorgeous.  I even packed it in my suitcase to bring on vacation! So glad I did!


6. Wildbird Ring Sling

My favorite way to carry around my little one.  Especially as he is in the difficult stage of still wanting to be held often but is just getting so big! I love holding him close and this beautiful sling helps do so without killing my arms.



Please feel free to share any good finds you come across and love! Happy Spring!!!
