Wardrobe Cheat Sheet Checklist for Spring

Spring is just around the corner and that means, shopping spree! Really, why? Well, I know every woman wants to update her closet with wardrobe essentials for spring, but they want to do it at a reasonable price. I’m so glad ThredUP offered me a chance to try out their service because I am completely impressed with how much you can get through this online consignment. A hundred dollars here goes a long way and you get amazing finds. I’m talking quality designer pieces for a price that you can actually afford! Today I’m sharing with you my wardrobe cheat sheet for spring essentials in hopes to inspire you to get spring shopping on your mind.

What I Got
ThredUP has a lot of gently used clothing, but occasionally you can find gems like my Little White Dress that has never been worn. I got this brand new Alice and Olivia dress (seriously, the tags were still attached) for $76. Retail designer price for this is $297, but it sold for $101 through ThredUP and with a 40% first-time discount (code: 40NP) I got an amazing deal on it! I’ve never been able to get a designer dress that cheap!

Then there’s this Milly bag, from one of my favorite designers with such a bright and unique style. When I saw this colorful clutch I knew it was a spring must have. To me, spring means bright and colorful so adding a bright colored bag to your wardrobe will instantly brighten it up. This Milly clutch retails at $245, sells for $89 but I got it for only $67 at ThredUP with that one time discount again. An amazing prize for such a quality find.

Style Tips to Inspire You for Spring

  1. Look for things that you can layer.

    With the spring weather coming, the sun starts to peek out, but there may also be a cool breeze blowing. This is always my favorite part about spring! A blazer, denim jacket, or scarf are definitely my go tos for keeping me warm!

  2. Look for a color or pattern that make you happy.

    Style varies from person to person so I recommend finding a color and pattern that suits your personality. You may love the pastels that spring brings or prefer to go for bright pops of color. Stripes and florals are also great options and as my fashionista friend recommends bows. There are lots of ways to incorporate fun pieces that represent youThredUP Little White Dress and Denim Jacket

  3. Look for crisp spring whites.

    Spring reminds me of new beginnings and that means fresh white is coming back! OK, so I’ve been wearing them all winter, but it’s definitely still on trend this season. Choosing to go for a little white dress, white heels, or a white pencil skirt can definitely be ways to add fresh white inspiration to your outfits. I’m all about mixing things up and finding new ways to incorporate such a fresh shade!

    Great post Molly! I love your ThredUp finds. I’m a ThredUp junkie. Lol!

    Love the outfit! You look gorgeous and ready for spring.


    • March 6, 2016 / 8:41 pm

      Thank you Asa! Do you use ThredUp a lot?! I haven’t tried selling anything but am curious about the process.

      • March 7, 2016 / 8:08 am

        Yes, I’ve been selling stuff to them for years. It’s a must do and super easy. You won’t get much money for your items but I still recommend. If you have designer pieces or items that are more valuable they will put those on consignment and let you adjust the list price. Shipping your stuff to them is free too. 😀

        • March 8, 2016 / 9:10 pm

          Ah, that’s perfect! I will have to try it out soon then!

  20. March 6, 2016 / 8:41 pm

    Right?! Super amazing finds! So glad I found them!

  21. March 1, 2019 / 4:12 am

    You look so beautiful in this blue jacket and your blue purse is so eye catching, I will recommend you to wear Black leather jacket it will surely make you look more cool then what you are wearing.
