Favorite Purchases of April

Spring shopping this year was more about replacing some older worn out items and adding in some new active wear and white dresses. This April, here are the purchases I kept and I’m ranking them from my top purchase on down.

April Favorites

The Sebago Boat Shoes | These boat shoes are my favorite purchase of the month! They already feel comfortable and broken in when you put them on. The leather and stitching is quality. Hands down my top purchase and I wore these all weekend already.


The J. Crew Amelia Maxi Shirt Dress | This white ruffle maxi dress can be dressed up with a belt and scarf or kept simple with the tie waist. I love the fit. I’ll be getting a lot of wear out this one all spring and summer.


The Lands’ End 3-in-1 Waxed Cotton Jacket | I was on the hunt to replace my favorite olive green spring and fall jacket that I have worn for at least 15 years. It finally got a tear on it when I was hiking in the woods and I had a heck of time finding something similar. This green waxed cotton jacket is the closest thing I could find and its going to be great for those cooler days and even in the fall. The liner and vest can zip out, it’s a great versatile piece and even better, it’s on sale now!


Lacoste on Sale | Last year, we joined a tennis club as a family and we loved playing together so much that we are doing it again this year. We’ve been playing tennis and pickleball together and now that the weather is nice again it’s family match time! I love polos paired with tennis skirts and Lacoste was having a sale, so I picked up a few tops and this white and green polo is a favorite. I ordered this Henry Duvall women’s tennis skirt with navy & green stripes and I’m awaiting its arrival.


Barbour Tartan Poncho | This seemed like an under-rated practical purchase, but this tartan poncho has been so useful and surprisingly cute! I’ve gotten stopped in the parking lot and asked about it already. It sold out last year, so I was happy to see it restocked for spring. We are in soccer season and rain season, so I bring this in my soccer tote on the weekends. If you have to wear a poncho…might as well make it cute. It folds up really small, so easy to bring along!


Smathers & Branson Ball Caps | This was another replacement purchase, only because the boys in my family have claimed my older ones as their own. I love these needlepoint hats for spring and summer. Classic.


The Chambray Maxi Dress | I have these dresses in the mini length and they have become such a staple of summer. This chambray maxi version is a nice casual piece to throw on. It’s light enough to wear in the summertime.


The Large Cane Scarf | Since I’m on such a white dress kick lately, I wanted some accessories to elevate them a bit. This cane scarf is such a great piece to work into your wardrobe. Wear it on the shoulders, around the neck, or even as a belt.


The Buckle Espadrilles | I love tie around the ankle espadrilles, but when I know I’m going to be doing a lot of walking–hello Nantucket cobblestone–I like a buckled version of this summer favorite. These buckle espadrilles achieve the same style, I just don’t have to worry about them getting loose or untied. I had a few pairs like this years ago, so I was happy to see them again.


The White Eyelet Mini Dress | This was an impulse bargain buy. I saw this on J. Crew Factory and thought perfect weekend dress and it is. Under $50, this eyelet dress comes in a few colors and is casual enough for the weekend and looks really cute on.

Those are my favorite purchases of April for my wardrobe. I’ll share my favorites with you at the end of every month.

Happy Shopping!
