This weekend we got a taste of spring. The sun was shining and the temperatures were in the high 50s. I was able to shed a layer, but I won’t be fooled in to thinking this great weather is here to stay. I don’t get sick very often and I want to keep it that way.

We won’t be in winter mode for long, so if you have yet to start your shopping for spring, check out what Mango has to offer with this selection of items curated by me. Enjoy!

Don’t let the cold winds fool you, Spring is actually on its way (officially in 15 days). What comes with Spring: warmer climate, NCAA tournament and spring cleaning. Whats a better place to start but your wardrobe? Allow me to suggest a few essentials to keep your eye on.


Come on we all know wind isn’t a concern like rain but they style doesn’t waiver.  They’ve even popped up on the runways as statement pieces. Have a couple of these on hand, they can even be layered under a varsity jacket.  My fave comes from Nike. Classic, clean, fresh.


I know me personally it’s hard to not dress like the weather. So brighter days equal brighter colors. Fluorescent colors have been the standout trend that came to the runway and had everyone’s attention. Designers paid special attention to brighter colors and perspectives to create looks that were retro and youthful. But don’t go overboard leave it to one piece. Also don’t shy from the blues. Obviously found as the choice of color for most jeans but move your style along by showcasing this classic color in accessories and shoes.


Stripes are coming back strong after being taken over by plaids the last 2 years. Stripes appeared in a lot of collections. The brighter the better. This season is great for experimenting  and what better way to do so than with stripes? Also a great tool to keep a slim look!


This jacket is such a staple, if you don’t own at least one theres an issue and you shouuld re-evaluate. From belted to belt less to single and double breast it remains easily a great piece casual or business. Trench coats have remained fashionable in the decades following World War II. Their original role as part of an army officer’s uniform lent the trench coat a businesslike respectability. Now it just lends you an option to take your style up a notch.


Throw aside those hideous ACG boots and double soled dress shoes, Spring screams casual. From perforated leather to subtle suede the options are abound. Business wise the oxford is always a must as well as humble canvas gets haute polish in spring’s suit-friendly loafers and lace-ups. Just take a look this previous post.

Spring is the time to start off fresh. Put away those wool coats and waterproof leathers, take my suggestions because the season of fun is upon us.
