5 items to transform your closet

It’s Monday, the start of a new work week, the first full week of May. There so many festive events to attend this month, virtually or in-person (graduations, weddings, etc). Spring is tricky, some days are absolutely gorgeous others are soggy and chilly. Here are 5 must haves that will make the moment in almost any scenario. They also make for some pretty good gifts for the moms out there.


1.The WOW Factor Dress

Get the dress but choose a bold color, funky print and/or an oversized silhouette. It will take your look to a whole other level and will definitely transform your closet. My WOW factor dress is the Alia Maxi by Hanifa pictured below.

2.The Trending Now Top

Nothing says spring like a playful, yet stylish crop top. My go to is this River Island show stopper. You can style her with high-wasted jeans, shorts, or your favorite maxi or midi skirt. The possibilities are endless. Here’s another another River Island top I’ve in my cart at this very moment.

3.The One Piece Wonder

I think we can all agree the jumpsuit, playsuit, romper or whatever the latest trendy name we’re giving the our one-piece wonders these days, it’s always a good idea until it’s time to go to the ladies room, am I right ladies??? Likewise, the idea of fully undressing every time nature calls neve dawns on us when we make this purchase but it will definitely transform your closet. It’s like pregnancy and child birth, God helps us conveniently forgot the pain and suffering we went through to achieve greatness on the off chance we want to do it more than once…lol I say all that to say get you jumpsuit this spring. I picked this one up at Anthropologie last summer and the slides at Dune London. You can find a suitable alternatives, here, here and here.

4.The Statement Slide

Summer slides are my go to, unfortunately these pom pom slides are pretty much sold out Dunn London but JW Anderson has been making waves with their amazing embellished slide. The Anderson slides are a bit pricey, here’s a more affordable option from Steve Madden (SM). SM never disappoints when it comes to an affordable dupe.
