Hey, everyone! Although spring weather hasn’t quite hit yet (it’s been quite cold back home in NYC), here are some amazing pieces that are guaranteed to get a lot of use once spring comes into full swing.

1.  Kimono Cardigan

My friends recently purchased floral kimono cardigans and they could not stop raving about how awesome they are! I haven’t gotten my hands on one yet, but they’re breezy, effortless, and perfect for both spring and summer.

2. Skater skirt

Skater skirts are definitely a spring must-have.  They’re comfortable, flirty, and versatile.  I suggest getting one in a staple color like black or navy. Try to look for funky textures like velvet or quilted for a more interesting and detailed look.

3. Joggers

Joggers are all the rage right now, and it’s not hard to see why.  They’re basically glorified sweatpants.  All the comfort with more class and style.

4. Printed shirt

For men, printed shirts can spice up any pair of jeans.  Both Urban Outfitters and Topman have great selections.

5. Slip-on sneakers

For men and women, the slip-on sneaker is the quintessential spring shoe, as in, you know it’s spring when you can wear your slip-ons without socks and not freeze to death.

6. Denim

Denim is a staple for both sexes during all four seasons, but spring means denim jackets and chambray dresses.

7. Umbrella

You know the saying, April showers bring May flowers! Do yourself a favor and avoid getting drenched during those torrential April downpours and get a fun umbrella.

Hey, everyone! I’m pleased to announce that I’m one of 25 new Brand Ambassadors for UChic.com! I actually worked with UChic back in October, when they launched their first product as part of their “Fashion with a Purpose” line, a laptop case called “the Gracie.” UChic is a unique startup; it’s philanthropic! Their core mission is to help women in high school and in college fund their dreams. By purchasing products like the Gracie case, you can help girls fulfill their aspirations.  They provide scholarships to exceptional women, which you can apply for here. In addition, UChic has a blog full of key advice, and they are in the process of publishing the 5th edition of their best selling book, the College Girl’s Guide to Everything.

As a Brand Ambassador, I’m responsible for spreading the word about UChic as well as starting important conversations for young women. To follow my journey through this internship, follow my Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts. Our first assignment as Brand Ambassadors is to write what advice we would give to our past selves, so look out for my essay on said social media accounts within the next few days! In the meantime, to check out what my fellow BAs are sharing, search for the hashtag #IWishIKnew.  I’m so excited to be working with such an amazing company, and I can’t wait to share everything with you guys as well!
