Happy first week of spring, everyone! This season is already off to a great start and we can’t wait to welcome such a beautiful time of year. This weekend you can find us spending quality time outside and maybe even trying our hands at planting a vegetable garden. If that doesn’t work out, you can definitely catch us brunching with our besties and sipping on a mimosa (or two!). Before we kick off the weekend in style, we’re here to give you another colorful batch of our LC.com Edit. In today’s round up we have everything from the perfect spring frock all the way to desk accessories and stationery that we can’t live without. Keep scrolling to see Team LC’s must-haves and don’t forget to share your faves with us in the comments!
1. Target Windsor Dining Chair (Set of 2), $149.99
Since I keep my home décor on the more neutral side, it’s always fun to liven things up with a pop of color. I currently am crushing on a set of these mint dining chairs around my table. They would brighten up my kitchen in the best way. – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief
2. Ray-Ban ‘Large Original Aviator’ 62mm Sunglasses, $150
Now that spring is upon us, it’s time to protect those peepers from the sunny days ahead. I don’t go anywhere without my Ray-Ban aviators and highly recommend the polarized version for extra protection. – Lauren, Editor-in-Chief
3. Sugar Paper Ballpoint Pen Set, $8.99
I’m not sure it’s normal to get as excited about office supplies as I do… But I picked up these Sugar Paper pens a few weeks ago and am obsessed! They’re SO cute, but also write really well… and when you make as many to-do lists as I do, a great pen is pretty important! – Rachel, Managing Editor
4. Urban Outfitters Hollyce Side Table, $98
I was amazed at the affordable price of this gorgeous, sculptural side table… It looks like a one-of-a-kind designer piece! You can bet I placed it in my shopping cart immediately and can’t wait to find a spot for it in my home. – Allison, Managing Editor
5. LC Lauren Conrad Lili Frame Flap Crossbody Bag, $34
I’m utterly in love with this ladylike handbag from Lauren’s new collection. I have it in the dove gray color, and it’s become my go-to small bag (the perfect size for cell phone, wallet, and keys). Between the rose gold hardware, the luxurious faux suede, and the long chain strap, it looks like a designer bag but only costs a small fraction of the price! – Ilana, Managing Editor
6. The Little Market Large Pouch in White Mudcloth , $64
I just purchased my first bucket bag, which means no interior pockets… While I love the toss-it-in-and-go style, there are some smaller items like my chapstick and other toiletries that I wanted easy access to (instead of having to dig around in my purse). I purchased this cute mudcloth pouch to hold all my little items, and I’m in love! It is the perfect size to toss in my work bag for the day, and the back side of the pouch is even a navy blue suede material. Obsessed. – Tessa, Editorial Assistant
7. Terrain Viola Mother’s Day Card, $6.50
I’m having a proud sister moment! My sister recently designed these adorable watercolor viola Mother’s Day cards for the Terrain website and select Anthropologie stores! I know that Mother’s Day isn’t until May, but you’re going to want to scoop up these cards before they sell out! – Jessi, Associate Editor
8. Paper Crown Tucson Dress, $270
I’ve been waiting patiently for this spring Paper Crown style to launch (after seeing some sneak peeks on the @papercrown Instagram), and I can’t wait to wear this maxi to upcoming bridal and baby showers this spring. The poppy print is perfect for this time of year, and the silhouette is so ladylike! – Allison, Managing Editor
9. The Mothers by Brit Bennett, $16
I just finished this debut novel by 26-year old Brit Bennett, and I can confidently say that it deserves every bit of critical acclaim it’s received. Here is a little plot synopsis from the Amazon Book Review: Seventeen year old Nadia Turner has her world turned upside down when her mother commits suicide and shortly thereafter, she discovers she’s pregnant with the pastor’s son’s child. Nadia finds a safe harbor in her best friend Aubrey, but as the years go by, her past decisions invade the present, ushering in a new wave of wounds. The Mothers ambitiously tackles heavy circumstances, but the hope of these young black women and Bennett’s ability to convey the ferocity of what it means have a mother, to be a mother, and to want a mother, make this novel a resoundingly magnetic and essential read. I highly recommend it! – Ilana, Managing Editor
10. MOTO True Blue Joni Jeans, $65
Lately, when it comes to my jean shopping, my philosophy is the higher the waist the better. I just ordered the petite version of these ones from Topshop, and I can’t wait to wear them out as much as possible. The jegging style and high waist makes them incredibly comfy, and I love how sleek and simple they are. They’re definitely a new staple in my wardrobe. – Tessa, Editorial Assistant
