Friday Fashion: Spring Shopping Online- My Forever 21 Picks


With NYFW just having passed, all of the beautiful items arriving in the stores and all of the Spring buzz on fashion blogs everywhere, I have been doing quite a bit of thinking about Spring shopping! I have even managed a few little purchases to prepare for the lovely warm season ahead of us. I have definitely have mentioned it before but I don't really love shopping that much. If I do need to go out to the stores instead of shopping online then I try to get it all done in one day so that I don't have to go back again for a little while. So shopping online can sometimes become very useful. Here is my shopping strategy in general:

1) I like to start early to avoid unwanted stress and slowly find the pieces I surely love from my favorite stores. After browsing through online shops I create wish lists (like the one below) of all the items I like and can see as good additions for the seasons wardrobe. I then choose some pieces from each store that I must have and add them to my cart. I love opening all of the boxes as they arrive!

3) I investigate the trends and see which ones I would like to include and which are just not going to happen. I then pick up a couple of pieces from each of those trends whether it be a dress, a skirt, a top, a necklace or a purse. 

4) Lots of basics are a must- i:e lots of colored shells from Kiki Riki (those are my favorites) which can make a look instantly. A really fantastic black pencil skirt, a neutral colored purse, a pair of black flats. These are pieces that will go with almost anything and don't have to be super expensive or thought out to make a outfit perfect so those are must haves for sure!

This week I am going to share some of my picks with you from Forever 21's online store. Each item will be linked below so if you like something it's just a click away to shop. I'm looking forward to adding quite a bit of color- both neon and pastel to my every day Spring looks and I found quite a few beautifully colored items to do that with there. 

Shop! 

Which is your favorite? Let me know in the comments form below! I would really like to know..

I think #2, #9 and #10 are going to be must haves!

  2. sound advice...what I hate about shopping is wasting time. I always feel like I could have used that time for something better, you know? So I like to get organized so that I don't have to spend much time in the stores. I don't shop online, but I should really start, it is practical, I'm sure.

  4. I don't shop at F21 too often as their sizing isn't always the best for me, but I do love walking through the store looking at the trends.

  9. I'd definitely go for the blue quilted bag, anything remotely Chanel-inspired wins my heart! Hahaha
    Forever 21 is one of my favourite brands when it comes to seasonal wardrobe updates, because it is affordable, stylish, the variety is huge, and the quality is greatly improving through the years!
    Thanks for dropping by on my blog,

  15. One of my weaknesses is online shopping, especially to F21's online store. The style and trend of F21 suits me very well, which is why it'smy to-go-to place every now and then. With F21's clothing, you can be edgy and sweet or, you can be cool and funky. Above all else, they cater to every body type! How cool is that?
