The Best Spring Basics.

These are a few of my favorite things for Spring: a great white dress (with pretty lace trim), a pretty straw bag, the greatest sandals ever, and a fun pop of color. Easy, effortless pieces that make getting dressed in the morning a cinch. I’ve mentioned it before so I apologize if I’m being repetitive, but this Etsy shop has the BEST basket bags. Whether you’re looking for an oversized tote or something smaller, they have a huge assortment – and they’re pretty affordable! We shot these against a pretty coral wall in Charleston (another one of my favorite things).

Someone asked me why I love Charleston so much. It isn’t the colorful walls, the cute preppy boys, or all of the yummy restaurants (although those things help and Charleston’s food scene is truly amazzzzing!) It’s the friends I’ve made there. Charleston has some of the most amazing, genuine, clever, creative people I’ve met. Over time (since my first visit – on this press trip of all things, two and a half years ago) they have become some of my closest friends. It’s an inexpensive flight from New York and I alway have a place to stay and a packed social calendar when I visit. Brooklyn is definitely home for now but Charleston is definitely #2!

PS – My dress + sandals are both a part of this week’s big Shopbop Sale! See the rest of my picks from the sale right this way… it’s time to stock up for Spring!

    I’ve seriously been wanting to go to Charleston for the longest, and am going to try super hard to plan a trip this summer! It just seems so perfect! Also, I’m loving your outfit – and think a pretty white dress is the perfect piece for spring!
