Guest Post: Top 5 Must Have Items for Spring

Hi everyone-I am still on vacation so today's guest post is by my friend Dana Marshall, an Accessory Buyer at Rue La La.

Rue La La is a private sale, online company that sells everything from that can fill your closet, jewelry box, or can help you decorate your home.

My Top 5 Must Have Items for Spring

1. Nude pumps: Nude shoes are a must have this season...pumps, sling backs, peep toes or platforms. Whatever style you chose you can be sure they will go with everything in your closet.

2. Shirt dress: A relaxed look that you can dress up or down depending on your mood. Great for the office or a casual dinner date with friends. I have this's a personal favorite.

3. Wrap bracelets: I love Chan Luu wrap bracelets. Beautiful craftsmanship, great style, and a unique look! This one comes in many styles and colors and gold is everywhere this season. A great accessory to any outfit.

4. Envelope bag: This snake embossed envelope bag is a hot style this season and this particular bag won't break the bank (which we love!) It can be used as a clutch or has a drop-in chain so can also be used as a shoulder bag.

5. A Classic Trench Coat: A timeless trench coat is a spring must have. Classic beige, bold reds, and even polka dots are on trend.  The A-line shape and belted waist is a very flattering look on all body types.
