The Latest Items I’ve Ordered For Spring 2023

The biggest disappointment I hear from my readers is when items are sold out. So, today I want to give everyone a head’s up on what I have on order so you have a chance to grab the items before they sell out. Here are the latest items I have ordered from several different stores. Some of these items have already arrived, and you’ll be seeing a lot of these on the blog in the coming weeks.

For sizing reference, I’m 5’6″ tall, weigh between 150-155, and I usually wear a size 8 in pants and a medium or large in tops. For dresses and swimsuits, I wear a size 12.


Almost all of this order came in yesterday. Everything has been hung up, steamed, and grouped together for photos. The Smocked Neck Dress, Cowlneck Maxi Dress, and Yellow and Blue Tiered Maxi Dress are beyond gorgeous! I sure hope they fit because they’ll be staying in my closet if they do. The yellow and blue one will be my Easter Dress, and I’ll probably pair it with a white blazer for extra warmth. If you need a spring sweater, then the pastel color block cardigan and the rose Pointelle Long Cardigan are ones you might want to try.


This order just arrived a few minutes ago, so I haven’t even opened the boxes yet. I’m hoping the Plaid Single Button Blazer and the blue Knit Midi Dress colors match. That will be a beautiful look if they look good together. I must have been in a blue state of mind because I ordered the Flutter Sleeve Plissé Midi Dress, Smocked Elbow Sleeve Blouse, Print Modal & Silk Scarf in purple and blue, and even these Platform Sandals that look like blue denim. Nordstrom is having a Spring Sale up to 60% off! I’ll be shopping this sale after my brother leaves, but if you have the time, I’d look at the items available now since they will sell out quickly.

J.Crew Factory

These came in right before I left for Mexico. I took the Short-sleeve ruffle-shoulder top with me and wore it with these High Waist Shorts in navy. I also wore the Map-print collared midi dress out to dinner one night, and it is super cute.

Old Navy

Did you read my Everyday Outfit Ideas for Spring from Old Navy post on Wednesday? If so, you saw a collage featuring two pairs of shorts, a pair of shoes, a belt, etc. I decided to order everything to bring the collage to life. The package is arriving later tonight, so I’ll try to get photos one day this coming week.


I took photos of all these items on Wednesday, but I haven’t gotten them back from the photographer yet. I LOVE the Long Single Strand Necklace, Embroidered Floral Mules, and Neutral Tort Sunglasses, all in shades of violet. Plus, if you’ve seen me wear my Michele watch but thought it was too expensive, the Mixed Metal Tank Watch looks extremely similar but at a fraction of the cost.


The Walmart order arrived yesterday also, so it has already been steamed and is ready for photos. I’ve already taken photos of the Belted Wrap Dress with Flutter Sleeves, and it is very flattering. I’m excited to try the Palazzo Super High Rise Jeans and the High Rise Flare Jeans. I also got some sleepwear that I forgot to link, and several cute dresses. The Sleeveless Shirt Dress, Sweater Mini Dress with Short Sleeves, and Tiered Cotton Poplin Dress are all above the knee. You’ve been asking for that length, so here you go!

    I just ordered the blue and yellow flowered tiered dress from Kohl’s. I hope it gets here before Easter. I’m anxious to see how it looks on me. I’m not sure about the smocking around the midriff. I also ordered and received the gold ruffled suede sandals from Chicos. They’re so cute, but the strap across the toe of the foot is a bit tight. I’m still debating on keeping them. Our daughter is getting married in July and I was hoping that I could wear them for that. Still looking for a dress to wear.

  2. I hope the plaid blazer and blue dress look good together. You will look awesome.

  3. Hi! You’ve probably posted this previously, but what garment steamer do you use? I’m looking on Amazon and need help deciding. Thank you!

  4. Just joined yesterday and am so happy I did! I had the pointelle cardigan at kohls in my shopping bag thinking about it but now I will order it … plus I have a coupon. I also love that eyelet shirt.
    Thanks for shopping at various stores for all budgets.

    Wow- it was fun to see all of the stuff you ordered because I kept thinking, “Ooh- I can’t wait to see how she styles that!” Both Old Navy and Walmart appear to have stepped-up their game. Thanks for another great post.

  6. Can’t wait to wear some warmer weather clothes! I love all the sleeveless dresses but sometimes you need a sweater or wrap to go over it. Please do a segment on items to wear over the sleeveless dresses!! Please! Thanks for all your great ideas.

    1. Susan, have you been looking at my calendar? Lol! That is on my agenda.
