In celebration of the long-awaited arrival of spring, a new head-to-toe outfit can be the kick-start you need to get a jovial spring in your step (pun win!). The transformative power of a pair of pointy-toe pumps or ladylike cross-body bag can make you want to start a juice cleanse, update your fitness regime or tackle a new project (colour-coding and merchandising one’s closet, perhaps?).
Like any shopping expert worth her salt, we know the Visa bills can rack up when on a spring wardrobe shopping spree. Especially when, like us, you you’ve placed multiple bets on when the royal baby will be born. (If you haven’t, you’re missing out! Enter our contest here.)
In the name of financial responsibility and post-winter retail therapy we’ve rounded up the hottest spring-ready pieces all ringing in under $150.
Added bonus? In honour of Earth Day, we highlight a must-have blazer from the new H&M Conscious Collection. Actress Olivia Wilde is the face of the Swedish retailer's ethically sourced fashion line and, with sustainable materials like organic leather and hemp, this work-ready blazer is a versatile and feel-good must-have for the new season. Not only will you get good karma snaps, but the sleek tuxedo style has recently been spotted on celebrities like Blake Lively, Emma Stone and Jennifer Aniston. Pair your blazer with a neutral top, paisley-printed shorts and a brightly coloured accessories palette (in a range of periwinkle and salmon) for a fun and flirty spring look.
