Sondra’s Spring Essentials!

Hey Everyone!

Most people know that Spring is pretty much my favorite season….it’s still totally appropriate to wear your cutest, comfiest hoodies…but you’re not risking hypothermia if you step out in a cute dress or tank, either! It’s time to break out the floral fragrances, wedges, and gradually introduce Summer into your style!

So, I thought I’d share some of my favorite things for making that happen, at the moment. 🙂

You’ve read enough by now (hopefully) to know that I have an AMAZING boyfriend, and to be quite honest, he spoils me. My birthday seems to be every day when it comes to this guy, and a few of my new favorite additions to my spring (and Summer, and Fall) accessory collections are thanks to him!

A girl needs to have that one statement bag that just kinda turns heads and makes people think “OMG! That bag is IT!” And my friends, I found my “It Bag.”

I am super excited about this tote for a few reasons:

1. Plenty of room! This bag is fab for a lunch date, work, or even the beach!

2. It’s all in the details! I mean seriously…nautical theme, with sophisticated leather and gold accents, and that lock and key? Not something you see everywhere, everyday.

3. Um…matching wallet, anyone?

Let’s face it. It’s killer. And I cannot WAIT to rock it. I’ll debut it in a few weeks. Still enjoying my cute Coach bag I got for my birthday, too!


A girl has to have a notable Spring fragrance. I have an entire shelf of various scents I adore, and I routinely switch out…but when the seasons change, I find myself drawn to certain ones for awhile. This year, I am loving Gucci Flora in Gorgeous Gardenia.

It’s alluring, without being too sweet or spicy, and it’s still got a fresh vibe to it. I prefer it more for the daytime, but you could easily touch it up for a night out, as well. Personally, my favorite Springtime floral scent for the evening is still Issey Miyake Florale. I got that one for my birthday last year, and was really excited to add it to my fragrance collection next to my Issey Miyake Summer ’09 Limited Edition fragrance that I save to wear every summer (and stalk eBay for when it’s time for more). This scent is certainly a little more exotic and seductive…but it’s great for day and night.


Another thing I love? Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Sea Salt Texturizing Spray. You can buy this product at Ulta stores for like $6, and it is AMAZING! It creates crazy beautiful beachy waves, without making your hair stiff or sticky. I have decided to go back to short hair until after surgery, so I am excited to do the shoulder length style and add a little fun texture to it with this product. Lately, I just throw my hair in a bun or braid, spray with this, take out later, run a brush through it, and done!

Last but not least, another gift from a wonderful boyfriend…something I’ve wanted for years and been too afraid to buy: REAL sunglasses!


I chose these lovely Ray Ban “New Wayfarers” in olive green. And I ADORE them! They’re unique, and they come with a sturdy case so I won’t have to obsess over ruining them. Lol.

Simply stated…these are MY favorite Spring things. But really, there is no limit to what you can use to spice up your Spring wardrobe. I accessorize while I am fighting everyday not to buy new clothing….but you could easily add a few new key pieces to your closet to refresh things. And if you know me, you know I typically would be suuuuuper bargain hunting for new things at Forever 21 or Target…but it’s nice to have some new additions that are quality investments for years to come!

That’s all for now. Thought I’d share my Fashionista 2 cents with you all!

I hope everyone has a great week! Go into it with an attitude that tells people you can’t be brought down, and everything will be just fine. FIVE MORE DAYS ‘TIL FRIDAY!


‘Til Next Time!
