Pieces range from $19.99-$29.99

Last week, it poured in So Cal.  While I understand that those of us who live in California have nothing to complain about when it comes weather, all the rain made me start dreaming of Spring fashion.  In recent posts on Because I’m Addicted and Fashion Gone Rogue showcase the new Spring collection from H&M.  Here are some of my favorites.  Is anyone else counting down the days until March.

I love Forever 21’s Contemporary line.  I am really surprised that it is not available at the Bev Center, but you can order it online.  Looks like I am going to be stalking the receptionist at work again – I have all my online purchases sent to my office.

Swiss Dot Flutter Dress – $27.80

Zipper Back Satin Top$19.80

Colorblock Satin Skirt – $17.80

Plaid Button Down Shirt – $19.80

Cecilia Hipster Bottom $14.00

It’s sad to admit, but I rarely shop for new cute underwear.  I went into Victoria’s Secret the other day and I was amazed at how expensive things are, that are made of such little fabric! They charge $30 for a cute pair of lacy hipster undies.

By no means am I looking to wear expensive lacy underwear everyday, but it is nice to have a couple cute pairs among the boring assortment of white and black.

Affinitas was kind enough to send me a couple samples of their underwear to test out and I really like it.  It is super cute, comfortable and half the price of Victoria’s Secret at $14.00.

Steve Madden Tianna Boots – $89.00

I have been looking for a inexpensive pair of slouchy brown boots to wear with dresses and jeans during the winter months.  I love these boots from Steve Madden. They are are super comfy and perfect with everything.  If you buy them from Amazon.com you can have them shipped for free.

Bath and Body Works Slippers – $29.00

I have been looking for an inexpensive pair of cashmere slippers for years. I was pleasantly surprised when I found some at Bath and Body works. I love their ballet flat style. I am thinking about keeping them under my desk for chilly winter days in the office.

I went to this last year and it was really amazing. I bought 3 pairs of jeans and a sweater. We waited for 3 hours in line, but it was really worth the wait. They have TONS of jeans and other stuff.
