On My Radar: Spring Staple or Splurge?

While I'm trying to keep my shopping to a minimum this year, there are a few things on my radar this month. I like to keep certain items on the back burner so that I can determine if I REALLY want them or am just impulse shopping to fill a void or something. I've gotten really good at letting things ago but with warm weather looming, a conference around the corner as well as a trip back to the ATL for my brother's graduation has me looking around for inspiration and styling ideas. I don't have any plans to specifically go out shopping for these events and plan on shopping mostly shopping my closet but sometimes you just gotta "treat 'yo self". 

A few weeks ago I discovered I.missed out on a sick jumpsuit from.H&M's conscious collection thanks to my spending freeze last fall and now I've found at least 3 others that make my heart go pitter-pat. Really I've been smitten with the look since spying it on my style muse June Ambrose a few years back and I guess it low key stuck in my head as I am REALLY seriously considering taking the plunge.

And can we talk about how cute the shorts version is? I mean! I haven't met a romper or jumpsuit I don't like as of yet and these have me mentally clearing out closet space to make room.


 The other thing I'm eyeing is the updated "tuxedo" vest. I keep seeing various ways to style this piece and I am just about ready to dip my toes into the pond of this one. My friend Andrea posted how she wore it just the other day and that sparked my interest yet again. Then I saw it again in the latest issue of People Style Watch on Olivia Palermo and was reminded how a piece like this can seem trendy at first but then turns into quite the wardrobe workhorse.

I think it looks just as good paired back to simple pieces like a printed sleeveless shift for a casually polished look as per Olivia and can totally see myself rocking this look on a date night or even to a (gasp!) work meeting or while at the conference, as it does when styled with jeans and your favorite tank like Andrea's done.  Yep, I think this might have to find it's way into my wardrobe for this season.

What do you think are these spring styles a staple worth investing in or a trendy splurge that I can pass on? What's on YOUR radar this season?
