I love the heel, the strappy-ness, and the braiding on these sandals.

And the best part? They are back zip!

They remind me of some kick-ass sandals I saw the lovely blogger Gala Darling wearing in photos. I need a pair like them because the style just sticks with me and I know I have many outfits they would be perfect with.
I also noticed, when I was out shopping a few weeks ago, the abundance of slouch-style tops out for spring.
Tops like this one:

Majestic Gems Scarf Necklace by Cynthia Dugan Jewelry
Is so classic/antique looking! It looks like something that could have been worn thousands of years ago or something you would find in a Mexican street market. It's timeless.
I love that it ties like a scarf instead of having a clasp closure. I am definitely keeping an eye out for a necklace like this one though I know I would most likely to find one, cheaply, in a place like Old Town, San Diego.
I also have been seeing a lot of tie-dye items of clothing. Now I really don't like tie-dye because usually it looks very hippy-drippy. It's a trend I am sad to see come back around but, i did find this lovely chemise:

That is so pretty it would be a crime to cover it up. I would probably wear it during hot days as a tunic over slim jeans. So, I will be keeping an eye out for similar when out shopping.
These are just a few of the new items out for spring/summer that I need to keep my eyeballs peeled for and add to my wardrobe.
I am a bit more picky this season because of the huge amounts of 80s/hippy 60s clothing that has been thrown up by designers for the consumers to buy. I am not feeling a lot of that stuff so being more selective in what I buy...especially with the economy like it is.
Still, I am able to fund some decent stuff out there that appeals to me.
