Pink and white will always be one of my favorite color combinations. I love how instantaneously putting on a bright pop of color can completely revitalize my mood and put a smile on my face. Nothing says “I’m ready to face the day” quite like a bold, beautiful outfit, which is why I’ve rounded up more essentials for spring from my favorite brands. I hope these picks from Spring Essentials Volume 9 inspire your spring wardrobe!

Spring Essentials Volume 8
Like most of my other Spring Essentials posts, I had to include another Juliet Dunn dress in Spring Essentials Volume 9. I’ve included two! Everything Juliet Dunn creates is so feminine, flirty, and flattering, and they’re so easy to throw on and go. I love these bright pink pieces, and the pink and white florals are timeless. They’re great investment pieces. This one has a tie-back, and this one has a looser, flowier off-the-shoulder fit. As far as sizing goes, they use a 0-4 size, so check their size chart. For reference, I’m usually a size 4 in most dresses, and I wear a 1 in this brand. If you have a larger bust, be sure to size up.
This ruffled LoveShackFancy dress is so pretty and perfectly pink. I love the way the ruffles add shape to it without being too bulky, and the elastic waistband cinches it in while keeping it easygoing. Did I mention it’s available in 8 colors, including a lighter pink?
This Eileen Fisher white button-up is a classic. It’s made of organic cotton with an elevated ripple texture that sets it apart from a standard button-up. When it comes to basic pieces like this, I like to buy one of high quality so that I’ll never have to think about replacing it. In the end, it’s saved me tons of money when compared to buying numerous cheap shirts that fall apart.
Another gorgeous dress by Sea New York, this white ruffle dress is so crisp and classic that it will be a part of my wardrobe for years and years to come. Their sizing is very true to size, so follow the size chart, and you’ll be golden.
I love Lilly Pulitzer for fun, preppy pink pieces, and this darling set is no different. Find the scalloped buttercup shorts here and the relaxed neon pink quarter zip here. I usually size down in Lilly Pulitzer tops and wear my usual size in their skirts and shorts. Check out more of my Lilly Pulitzer obsession here!
I’m a huge fan of Kjaer Weis beauty because their formulas are transparent, free of toxic chemicals that could harm my health, and they work better than most phthalate-riddled cosmetics on the market. I’ve never once been disappointed by anything I’ve used by Kjaer Weis, which is why you’ll find them in every one of my Spring Essentials posts. This time I’ve included their eye pencil.
Another clean beauty brand I adore is RMS beauty. Just like Kjaer Weis, they have very clean and transparent formulas, which makes me feel good about putting their cosmetics around my lips and eyes. I’ve included their tinted daily lip balm and lip2cheek stain that can be used as blush, lip, or eyeshadow color.
Tata Harper makes some of the cleanest skincare in the world here on the East Coast in Vermont, and I’ve been a fan for years! Her Elixir Vitae Serum is worth its weight in gold for how well it prevents and corrects wrinkles, dark circles, and fine lines. It’s a facial and a facelift in a bottle!
I recently discovered Innersence Organic hair care products, and I will never go back to using Drybar products with untold artificial and chemical additives listed under “fragrances” and “colors.” These products work so well, and they’re so gentle and effective on my medium-thickness curly hair that I only wish I’d found this brand so much sooner! One of my favorites is this Hair Love Prep Spray which does double duty as a detangled spray and a heat protectant. This way, I can use my favorite styling tool from T3 Micro without worrying about damaging my hair.
Accessories, Handbags & Shoes
This brown and white Louis Vuitton bag is so fun for spring, along with these Julie Vos Earrings, heirloom quality Mikimoto Pearl necklace, and Gucci ring. They all add a touch of glamour without being too much. This all-white Louis Vuitton square handbag is eye-catching, while these blocky-heeled shoes remind me of something I’d wear walking around the mall when I was in high school.
