I am so ready for spring! I’ve already begun planning my garden, spring travels, and my spring wardrobe, so I wanted to share some of my favorite fresh green finds. The color of buds on the trees, tulip leaves, and other beautiful plants springing up out of the ground, green is the epitome of spring’s renewal. I hope these garden-fresh pieces from Spring Essentials Volume 8 inspire you to turn over a new leaf and rejuvenate your wardrobe.

Spring Essentials Volume 8
I’m a huge fan of Juliet Dunn dresses. I own half a dozen from last year alone, and I don’t plan to stop collecting them anytime soon! This sage green embroidered cotton mini dress is perfect for warmer weather and longer days, plus the green is so pretty and timeless. If you’re new to the brand, be sure to check the size chart. I’m usually a size 4 in dresses and wear a size 1, and I’ve found that they’re very true to size.
Agua by Agua Bendita is another one of my favorite brands. Her handmade garments feature fun and colorful animal and botanical motifs that look like works of art. They’re exquisitely well-made, utterly timeless, and highly unique. The quality is unmatched, but do be aware that they run small. I size up one size in most styles. This linen-tiered maxi dress has vintage block print-style botanicals and is so lovely for spring, summer, and autumn. Other items I’ve selected for spring from this brand are this lovely pareo and this one-piece halter swimsuit.
If you like Juliet Dunn and Agua by Agua Bendita, you’ll love Sea. It’s another of the brands taking over my closet. Known for delicate silhouettes, beautiful eyelet details, and supremely feminine. So many other brands seem to be moving towards more masculine styles, which is great – we need a variety of styles for everyone and every mood, but I will always love fun, flirty, and delicate styles like those made by Sea, like this eyelet Georgina Dress. I also included some of their beautiful homewares; this pillowcase and this duvet cover. Aren’t they lovely?
These green leather pants from SPRWMN scream spring to me!
Ursa Major is a clean, organic beauty brand based here on the East Coast in Vermont. I recently switched to this gorgeous lime & ginger body wash, and I am OBSESSED! It smells incredible, works really well, and leaves my skin feeling soft and clean without harsh chemicals or drying my sensitive skin. I plan to buy more of their products and replace my current shower care products with more of theirs. My husband really likes this brand too!
I’ve been looking for clean nail polishes that are bright, colorful, and long-lasting without toxic chemicals leaching through my nail beds. Nail Inc. is a great option, as are Sundays and Ten Over Ten. I’m very pleased with the quality, color choices, and formulations of these nail polishes.
This coconut body oil is a great, easy-to-apply moisturizer, while this solid block is more of an everyday, luxurious ritual that I love. I own 3 different scents of these Kate McLeod body stones (sleep stone, grounding stone & sex stone), and I really enjoy using them. They’re like a mini-massage that leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soothed, plus they smell incredible!
In my quest to replace all of my chemical-laden beauty products with organic, cleaner versions, I’ve swapped out my comodogenic (pore clogging) sheet masks with these organic, clean versions. This set includes a variety of four organic sheet masks, each of which is great for sensitive skin and those who care about the ingredients they’re exposed to on a daily basis. Another swap I’ve made is this organic toothpaste, and this skin drink from Greek brand Korres. This eyeliner from Kjaer Weis has been my favorite for years!
I’ve been dry brushing for years, as has my hsuband, and it helps keep our skin soft, clean, and even looking. I love this tiny facial brush and this long handled dry brush is great for taller people, those who struggle with flexibility, or difficult to reach spots like the back.
Accessories, Handbags & Shoes
These APL: Athletic Propulsion Labs sneakers are so verdant and supportive – perfect for spring! I also really like these Off White trainers. These Julie Vos earrings come in five rich colors like this green pair and instantly elevate any outfit. These Chanel earrings are timeless and are heirloom quality.
I have this fanny pack in blue and white from Paravel and it’s held up on numerous hiking and travel adventures, and this green is a gorogeous addition to my collection. Both this trinket dish by Kassatex and this Tory Burch bangle are lovely for spring essentials volume 8.
