10 Things We Need for spring: Part 2 of 3

Continuing with our spring preparations:

4. A light spring/summer scarf: If you love scarves as much as I do then you will be happy to know that there are lighter weight , cotton, silk, or blend of both, for spring and summer. A scarf can be as complimentary to any outfit as a necklace. Let’s look at some spring scarves:

5. Metallic Wedge Sandals: Metallic is nearly timeless and is considered a neutral so you’ll get a lot of mileage out of these. They make your legs look good, too.  Last year, Target had the cutest metallic wedges. I wish I’d bought them. alas, I didn’t, so, onward and upward my sister! Check these out:

This fabulous shoe has so much going for it. first it is metallic on a natural background. It is so versatile that it deserves a raise. If you have very short legs you may not be able to wear any kind of strap around the ankle because it cuts your leg off and shortens them further. But this shoe, because it is a neutral metallic, anyone can wear…Juicy Couture Women’s Rory Wedge Sandal
