The gorgeous weather made me crave for warmth, sunshine, Sakuras and colorful, brand new clothes. My closet is bursting but for some reasons, I always think that I need one more thing. On my radar this Spring are light printed dresses, pencil skirts and colorful pants.
Printed shift dresses or tunics
I am known for loving maxi dresses. They represent me (when I am tired of my jeans representing me). However, I also enjoy a shift dress from time to time. It is a bit hard to find one my size in here but I am still on the lookout for the perfect one. I think that a dotted one will go well with the trend at hand. However I am also drooling on a flower printed one.
Retro style dresses
I like retro style dresses with the peter pan collar. However, I am not sure I am cute enough for the trend. I am willing to try it on and see how thing go. If I like it then be it; if not, then I will return it or donate it.

Some years ago, I gave away all my short skirts for religious reasons until I realized that I could comprimised by wearing opaque tights or leggings. Now I am trying to fill my wardrobe with practical skirts that do not make me look like a bohemian. I enjoy pencil skirts for they are a tad sophisticated. On my radar are simple one toned skirts in royal blue and black.

Last Summer, I went crazy and bought my first colored jeans in years. They are bright orange and make me so happy for they are not too tight. This year, I think I am going to add more colorful pants and I know just the color I am lusting over (Blue, green, golden brown, mustard and hot pink).

Navajo Printed knits
If this coming Spring is anything like last year's (still chilly), I made need a few knitted sweaters that can keep me warm. I have been looking for heavy knits without success. I am lusting over these but does not dare to order them online for fear they may not fit as well as I want them to. I hate shopping online but for these prices, I may just take the plunge.

Don't you find it strange that my craving list does not include shoes, or bags? I am thinking that I am pretty set when it comes to those. I have way too many bags that I barely use and do not even get me started on shoes. I guess I am going to rest my shoe shopping for a while until I find a new obsession that is.
