shae -March 26, 2009, 11:20AM

I’m going to dress like a Grecian beauty who’s visiting an ancient, remote tribe in Africa.

Shelley -March 26, 2009, 11:21AM

Those are the cutest little bags! I have been updating my wardrobe for spring by adding light jackets, bright colors like yellow and turquoise and I am totally in love with anything off-white/ivory right now!

Michell -March 26, 2009, 11:26AM

I’m really excited to get some linen pants, sunglasses and new swim suits for my upcoming travels to Italy!

Jordan -March 26, 2009, 11:29AM

Im going to be adding a lot of bright colors for sure.
oranges and reds.
always up for a cardigan.

Bethany -March 26, 2009, 11:29AM

I would like to add several mini-dresses to my spring wardrobe. I’d love to find some with frilly hems and modest tops (frock style maybe?). I plan on wearing them with leggings, jeans, or bare legs… I’ll stretch out the use of my vintage boots as long as I can this spring until I finally have to switch to flip-flops. I love the Free People Cuff sandals!

Jenna Jurgielewicz -March 26, 2009, 11:30AM

Lots more orange!

Brittney -March 26, 2009, 11:33AM

This spring I plan on buying a lot of colorful dresses and wedge sandals!

Ola -March 26, 2009, 11:34AM

I’m looking forward to getting some chino/linen shorts, gladiator sandals, baggy/flowy fitting tops with simple peaceful designs, some vintage oversized sunglasses, swimsuits with original cuts, fun bracelets with plenty of color or maybe even a plain brown leather wrist tie. :)

Mercedes -March 26, 2009, 11:35AM

I am going to wear more color, like dark pinks, dark blues, and lots of skirts.

keely -March 26, 2009, 11:36AM

I am going to change my wardrobe by getting more clothes that can be worn all different ways! that way i can make more outfits without buying more clothes. Free people has the perfect clothes to do that with!

Haley -March 26, 2009, 11:36AM

I’m going to update my spring wardrobe with bright springy colors, like, bright canary yellow and tiffany blue, and pair with fresh bold accessories. Old fashioned sunglasses in bright colors are a must, along with greek sandals.

katiehov -March 26, 2009, 11:38AM

I love the silhouette of a tight, high-waisted mini with a big flowy top tucked into it. Also I am looking for some casual mini dresses, I love ones made of jersey and modal/pima cotton.
I am looking for a good big tote bag with some kind of metallic finish and distressing.

Lavinia -March 26, 2009, 11:38AM

I would like to wear neutrals, like sand, off-white, cream, khaki, beige, and my favorite color, white. Keep it light, airy, pure and simple for Spring. Like gauzy, flowing skirts and dresses with a cardigan or just jeans and tennis sneakers and a white-tee.

Elizabeth Gruenke -March 26, 2009, 11:39AM

I’m cutting back on jeans and sweaters and pulling out my tights and dresses. Pastels are so fun for spring! I just bought some pastel pink reader glasses that I wear with every outfit….
I love Spring =)
and I adore Free People!

christina -March 26, 2009, 11:39AM

I plan on adding lots of coral, lots of taupe, fresh and airy white blouses and a creme-colored mini with Mexican flowers strewn about the neckline.

ev -March 26, 2009, 11:39AM

denim cutoffs, flowy boho dresses, and off-the-shoulder tops for warm spring days are a must have!

Lindsay -March 26, 2009, 11:39AM

New dresses!, right now I like long ones, bright colors, and vintage inspired florals!

Stacie -March 26, 2009, 11:39AM

I’m hoping to redo my wardrobe with purples and greens. I still love brown though, and white… as for items and such, I’m planning on wearing a lot of decorative scarves, and not wearing shorts, but rather skirts and boy shorts/capris… I can’t wait!

Jenn -March 26, 2009, 11:39AM

I’m really excited about getting some snazzy jean shorts and bright, sunny dresses. My clothes this summer are def going to have to be scooter friendly in addition to being super duper cute and fun. I think rompers are going to be the way to go – I’ve got my eye on the Striped Crochet Trimmed Romper right now. A hat is a necessity, too – can’t walk around with helmet hair all the time! I’ll probably also be buying/making a lot of headbands and hair clips for all the weekend scooter trips. Can’t wait!

Alex -March 26, 2009, 11:40AM

I will be adding more dresses in bright colors. I am planning on buying a floor length long maxi dress, to wear during the day or evening. I will be adding more cute headbands to keep back my hair on those hot summer days.

Kelly -March 26, 2009, 11:40AM

Those are adorable. :) I’m going to add lots of bright colors, especially blues, pinks, etc; frocks, ruffle-y items and get the most use out of my boots.

maura -March 26, 2009, 11:41AM

Very cute bags!!
I am updating my wardrobe by recycling some old pieces and finding pieces from thrift stores to mix with some high end pieces. Bold graphic patterns mixed with basics is what i am going for. I love the Peacock Graffiti Romper so i am planning on building a spring wardrobe around that silhouette and those colors! love love love it!

Mallory -March 26, 2009, 11:41AM

I’ve been stocking up on this insane florescent green color. It works great with olive skin tones and really brightens things up.
I’m also loving all things “hippie”/60’s, inspired by the movie “Bottle Shock”.
Peasant tops and Native American inspired pieces are also a must for me.

Arin Michelle richter -March 26, 2009, 11:41AM

This spring, for me will include more fluffy lace, leather things, wild curly hair, creamy pearl studs, and fine shimmery glitter on my skin!

rosalia -March 26, 2009, 11:41AM

i will express my mexican background & culture through my clothing & my daughter’s, cuz she’s my 5 yr old side kick. ;)

Renee -March 26, 2009, 11:42AM

I will be adding bright colored tops to my wardrobe and spring scarves. I am also looking for a great comfortable flat sandal.

jeannine -March 26, 2009, 11:44AM

I have been updating by adding light tans and nude colors with a lot of lighter colors.

Katie -March 26, 2009, 11:45AM

i plan on wearing boots (cowboy boots, Minnetonka boots) with my sundresses as long as i can and adding high wasted skirts and shorts to my wardrobe :) oh and flat strappy sandals too!

Nancy Torres -March 26, 2009, 11:45AM

Fiesta prints and bold colors, definitely. My must have item is probably a flowery dress.

Maren -March 26, 2009, 11:45AM

I love bold, bright colors… but I also love gray. A mix of the two! And lovely scarves and sandals. I long for spring I love bold, bright colors… but I also love gray. A mix of the two! And lovely scarves and sandals. I long for spring <3

shelby -March 26, 2009, 11:46AM

mini dresses, sandals, and rompers. so excited for the bright sunshine.

Emily -March 26, 2009, 11:47AM

I’m really excited to be able to wear some new jean shorts and spring dresses for the nice new weather!

Jackie -March 26, 2009, 11:48AM

This spring I want to wear lots of bright bold colors but also get back to my hippie self – flowing tops. cool sandals and as much natural stuff as possible, my main goal for my spring wardrobe is to make my wardrobe as “green” as possible

katie k -March 26, 2009, 11:48AM

i plan on cinching every outfit at the waist. no more low rise anything. i also intend on wearing many leggings and tights that hit just below the knee, so that all dresses are paired with something edgy… i think instead of frilly and flowy this spring and summer, i’m going to keep everything very sleek.

Ellen -March 26, 2009, 11:48AM

Updating with classic pieces that can transcend fashion fads that include more color.

Anabel -March 26, 2009, 11:50AM

Adding bits of accesories, now that it won’t be under a coat. Soft cotton dresses are what I’m mostley interested in (what else would I sun-bathe in?), and bright coloured scarves.

Stephanie -March 26, 2009, 11:50AM

I’m into lace tops with rugged pants and vintage looking house-dresses with textured and modern cardis for the spring. Plan on working with harem pants and chunky funky belts too.

allison -March 26, 2009, 11:51AM

Super cute stuff! Looks like my grandma made it with her nimble fingers! For Spring, I am going to try and dip back deep into my closet and repurpose everything. I am going to try and buy just a couple very versatile things and then mix them up with everything I already have!

Ann Hao -March 26, 2009, 11:53AM

I’m adding thin, exotic, bright scarves and interesting leggings. My jeans are going to be light and destroyed rather than dark, and I’m wearing my light gray leather jacket almost every day now. I just bought a ton of antique waist belts the other day and I’m going to incorporate that in as well. I love Free People!!!!

amy Shannon -March 26, 2009, 11:53AM

i shall be wearing brightly colored shoes, with dresses, dresses and some more dresses… all shapes and sizes. my legs can not wait to be FREE of pants :)

Megan -March 26, 2009, 11:53AM

I’m making myself a romper! and getting hair cut if that counts.

christine -March 26, 2009, 11:54AM

vintage bohemian dresses. vintage everything! =)

cate the great -March 26, 2009, 11:55AM

I’ll update my wardrobe with translucent fabrics that I can layer without bulking up. I love pale colors for spring, with subtle layers of stripes or textures. The key is to look breezy, light and effortlessly beautiful. I contrast the silhouette of top and bottom: baggy top with skinny legs, or skinny top with casual baggy legs.

Linnea -March 26, 2009, 11:56AM

hopefully lots more free people :)

Ashley -March 26, 2009, 11:56AM

I’m going to finally start wearing colors other than black and grey!

Reem -March 26, 2009, 11:56AM

I often claim that I was born in the wrong decade. So with this season’s explosion of pattern and soft silhouetted dressed, I’ll fantasize that I’m among a crowd in a grassy field witnessing my favorite bands of the 60’s and 70’s perform! I also plan to revive my early high school days and pair feminine tops with black harem pants, torn and frayed skinny jeans, and black lace leggings.

Tracy -March 26, 2009, 11:57AM

I plan to add more bohemian style clothing (especially Free People designs=my fave) to my wardrobe, especially casual dresses that can be worn anywhere.

Jess Broad -March 26, 2009, 11:58AM

I’m planning on going all girly with the florals in all the shops at the moment and also incorporate lots of grey, nude and sequins for subtle sparkle! I’m excited just thinking about it!

Stephanie -March 26, 2009, 11:58AM

This spring I’m going to make neutral pieces pop with splashes of vibrant color.

____a -March 26, 2009, 11:58AM

i bought the cutest (& a little pricey) clutch that is so worth it!
i want to wear a lot of tights + denim cutoff combinations
with loose fitting super cute tops.
spring is about being comfortable :)

erika -March 26, 2009, 12:01PM

Maria Nicolle -March 26, 2009, 12:02PM

Strappy/Intricate wedge sandals! I’m going to try various ways to add funk, color and flirtiness to my hair. Loose fit mini dresses with layered homemade and vintage jewelry are a must for me. peace, love and smiles! Happy Spring

Sarah -March 26, 2009, 12:02PM

I can’t wait to update my winter work wardrobe. i want to break out of black and get into rich colors and prints. free people’s color palette is just the ticket!

Adina -March 26, 2009, 12:03PM

For spring I am going to be brave and girly and try to wear more yellows, oranges, and pinks. Hopefully in the form of some cute jersey dresses and and long tunics.

meaghen -March 26, 2009, 12:04PM

I have been adding a lot of boyfriend tees (in bright colors) to my closet lately. Along with flirty, feminine off-white tanks with lace/beaded/ruffled details. I’m also on the hunt for the perfect pair of rain boots.

Kristin -March 26, 2009, 12:05PM

i’m buying cowboy boots!

Mari -March 26, 2009, 12:05PM

I am loving casual shorts rompers for everything form the beach to shopping!!! also, any sheer material and light colors seem to be catching my eye!

Kelly -March 26, 2009, 12:06PM

I plan on adding in some bright greens and deep purples to revamp! Also, cute cardigans always pair well with worn jean capris and old Rainbows!

Sadie -March 26, 2009, 12:07PM

I’m really excited about getting some sundresses and cute tanks to go with shorts and mini skirts.

sarah -March 26, 2009, 12:08PM

Lacey tanks, skirts. A light, flowy silhouette. Strappy sandals. Light scarves. Beady jewelry. Also, lots of heart jewelry. Colors are going to be pale pinks, yellows, greens.

Courtney -March 26, 2009, 12:09PM

I am all about color. Dresses are a must in the spring wardrobe. I prefer them to be knee length and flowy. I am in need of some blouses with maybe a touch of texture. i am all about sandals too. Of every color. :)

Sarah Fleming -March 26, 2009, 12:10PM

I’ve been updating my wardrobe with new accessories : )
Colorful scarves, unique handbags, exotic jewelry, and funky shoes do just the trick for me!

Marianne -March 26, 2009, 12:10PM

To update my wardrobe for spring, I have been purchasing brighter colors such as yellow, orange, green, and turquoise. I like to change up seasonally so I’m not remembered for wearing a certain color or style all the time. Also, sundresses are adorable in the spring with a brightly colored cardigan. I’ve also added some brightly colored scarves to my wardrobe like yellow, orange, neon green and hot pink just to add a little something to my outfit if I am looking very plain that day.

Monica -March 26, 2009, 12:10PM

I want to mix and match colors and textures that you would not normally pair together, but have people notice how unique it looks (and of course be jealous!).

Alexis -March 26, 2009, 12:12PM

i’m in the process of collecting lots of patterned and colorful dresses, large superstar shades, and flowy, billowy harem pants and jumpsuits. spring into summer is gonna have me imitating Diana Ross in Mahogony.

Melissa -March 26, 2009, 12:12PM

I am updating my wardrobe by adding denim! I am loving a denim vest over a bright colored dress or denim shorts with a long unstructured top. My summer staple: FRINGE!! I will pair it with anything!

Tricia -March 26, 2009, 12:13PM

I’m working on a white linen collection as well as a collection just with bright colors!

Alana -March 26, 2009, 12:14PM

Dresses and Skirts: long and flowy or short and tight….and hair accessories… lots of hair accessories.

Eliza -March 26, 2009, 12:14PM

I plan on wearing more patterned dresses Spring is the best time to have a little breeze going, and great summer dresses are the coolest (no pun intended).

maddie -March 26, 2009, 12:15PM

For spring i would like to dress in more florals and lace. I want to have my wardrobe to be lots of different bright colors and patterns! With either cute brown flats, strappy sandals, or my favorite moccasins. Just in general very casual, unique, and free people CUTE! :)

Elle -March 26, 2009, 12:22PM

To update my wardrobe for Spring I will be going back to my favourite easy look, bo-ho chic. Lots of linen and flowing fabrics.

meagan -March 26, 2009, 12:23PM

My plans are to making several new “summer” dresses and skirts, shop at local thrift stores (which are thriving due to the economy), and to utilize vintage stores and yard sales!

Stephanie Maldonado -March 26, 2009, 12:27PM

I am planning on buying some of the free people dress & a pair new sunglasses (which i bought this weekend) oh & sandals =)!!….
I am definitely sticking to the pastel colors for spring.

lianna -March 26, 2009, 12:28PM

i recently bought a huge load of white clothes and bags and i plan on tie-dyeing them. also, i plan on not wearing pants anymore until the fall.

Alana -March 26, 2009, 12:28PM

Clearly I will be buying some new sundresses- besides daffodils, I’m pretty sure they’re my favorite t hing about spring!

Jaime Melfi -March 26, 2009, 12:29PM

I’m so excited for Spring! I went to a few thrift stores the other day to update my wardrobe and shake things up! i got a few bright colored pencil skirts (turquoise, hot pink, and orange!). i also got a few funky blouses, a vest, a dress, and some sunglasses! I love matching things that you wouldn’t typically match together but somehow work. I’m so pumped to mix and match and play around with my wardrobe this spring!
Also, every spring I pick out two or three things I haven’t worn in years, cut them up, and make them into something new! I love sewing, so it’s my version of “spring cleaning” i guess. Last weekend was that weekend, and I made a shirt and skirt into a dress and an old pair of pants into a vest!

Cristin -March 26, 2009, 12:30PM

Oh man, i am excited about slip dresses and skirts. That is definatley what I will be adding to my wardrobe. And color! Lots of color!

Marissa -March 26, 2009, 12:34PM

I am making a solid effort to wear more dresses this spring/summer. Also making a anticipated comeback is my ever-growing collection of white pants…they are my favorite part of warm weather!

Megan -March 26, 2009, 12:34PM

I’ve already started on the spring wardrobe! I’m totally in love with short dresses right now. I’m looking for a lot of color and patterns. I’ve been accessorizing with cowboy/vintage boots and gold jewelry, a lot of feathery like pieces. Very countryish.

Dez -March 26, 2009, 12:36PM

I plan to update my wardrobe for Spring with pretty flats and strappy sandals some destroyed vintage denim and floral and lacey tops. I want a lot of white and yellow and coral for colors.

emily -March 26, 2009, 12:38PM

Ms K -March 26, 2009, 12:38PM

I’d like to add some colorful short skirts, definitely some high-waisted shorts. I’m also planning on wearing dresses when bicycling more – maybe pair them with some leggings or bike shorts underneath?
And I would like to add some more yellow to my wardrobe :)

katie -March 26, 2009, 12:41PM

This spring/summer I am really looking forward to wearing dresses but simple ones and making the outfit come together with a really cool pair of shoes/sandals!!

Kendall -March 26, 2009, 12:42PM

I am excited to Spring into Summer! I plan on buying a lot more floral prints for spring. As well, looking for browns, tans, blues and yellows.

eliza -March 26, 2009, 12:43PM

I love wearing skirts so i plan to wear a lot of them. I want them to have cute designs and patterns with spring colors and a cute tank top to go along. I’m going to try and look for bargains- I went to Thailand this past Christmas and got a very cute skirt and it was only about $5 or $6, plus it looks just like something from Free People :)

Lani Lim -March 26, 2009, 12:43PM

I am going to buy more sundresses, skirts, and cute tops, because I love being girly! :)

Cara Larkin -March 26, 2009, 12:46PM

I always switch to brighter colors in the spring/summer, and wear more scarves and dresses.

Kate -March 26, 2009, 12:48PM

I’m all about dresses, wild colours, paisley and 70’s style patterns this spring. Looks like I’m gonna be a hippie!

Samantha Clancy -March 26, 2009, 12:48PM

How are you planning on updating your wardrobe for spring? Anything special, unique colors, or silhouettes you’re into for spring?
I’ve always been intrinsically and unexplainably uncomfortable about wearing hats. I haven’t had enough confidence to don a hat in everyday, so this Spring I’ve decided to try to work them into my outfits.
They’re always so adorable on other girls and I’m going to make myself try them out!~

Johanne -March 26, 2009, 12:50PM

I’m simply going to throw in as many colours as possible. I have been wearing black/grey/navy all winter, and am sick and tired of it. I recently broke up with my boyfriend, and have been inspired to wear corals ever since… So red, red, blue, white, green… orange and purple. Might even try something yellow?
But give me the sun, and I will give it something to shine on! Grey is so last season for me.

Joy Paguyo -March 26, 2009, 12:51PM

I have really gotten to know the Urban Outfitter/Free People customer service people over the last month. lol
I bought a few staple pieces that would give an edge to my current wardrobe: high waisted skirts, onesies, headwraps, and dresses.
I sold a bunch of old clothes to consignment stores to get the money for the new stuff. :)

Chelsea -March 26, 2009, 12:53PM

This spring, I plan on visiting a few thrift and vintage stores and stocking up on some unique pieces. I also plan on working on my sewing skills and trying to learn how to adapt pieces into something new and beautiful! I’m looking forward to wearing lots of dresses, beaded jewelry, and flat sandals.

Jill -March 26, 2009, 12:53PM

Cute Bags!! I am totally taking advantage of oversized items! I have been waiting for this trend since I was a tomboy in Middle School!

jackie Cork -March 26, 2009, 12:54PM

As many rompers and high-waisted skirts as I can get my hands on as I hate wearing pants.

Sonia -March 26, 2009, 12:55PM

I definately want to add more floral into my spring closet and i’m so excited for colors to be back in style!

Johanne -March 26, 2009, 12:56PM

Floral’s, colours and dresses. I have been wearing grey all winter – and fall as well – all last summer I wore white, and I’m sick and tired of it. I look in my wardrobe and sights.
I just broke up with a guy, and that has made me want something red, maybe coral, orange like.
I haven’t worn red since I died my hair.
So please! Give me the sun and I will give it something to shine on.

Donna -March 26, 2009, 12:58PM

By adding bright accessories to outfits and adding flowers in my hair.

Chris -March 26, 2009, 12:58PM

i’ll be wearing lots more color – yellows and bright greens! im looking for a new pair of flat sandals and cute cardigans. I love spring!

Saundra Nicole Chapa -March 26, 2009, 1:00PM

I absolutely love the stitch detailing on the cell phone case, and the clasp…sweet!! Also that hair clip would be simply perfect for my long hair ; ) This spring to me is going to be all about cute but comfy, simple yet pretty style…reminiscent of the days when I was a little girl. Sundresses , cut-offs, cute cool tops and flip flops are definite staples. Colors range from bold to pastels…depending on the mood! Random accessories are a must, and whenever possible…vintage vintage vintage!!

Angela Gispert -March 26, 2009, 1:01PM

torn up shorsts, lots of white, flowy blouses, and floral prints.

ashley -March 26, 2009, 1:01PM

I like to scour the latest on my fave site– FP, then see what I have in my closet to put together (eco-wardrobe building) and plan to save for the few items I may not be able to live without!!

christina -March 26, 2009, 1:01PM

I’m going to be wearing lots more color – yellows and bright greens. I’m also looking for new everyday flat sandals and comfy cardigans or hoodies bc my office is always so cold! I love spring!!

laura prpich -March 26, 2009, 1:18PM

How are you planning on updating your wardrobe for spring? Anything special, unique colors, or silhouettes you’re into for spring?
I have updated my look by adding menswear which I love! Stripes, boyfriend jeans and bow ties in my hair. I like to add a girly twist with lots of necklaces and heels.

Alexandra -March 26, 2009, 1:20PM

I am going to add more of an edge to my wardrobe by wearing a faux leather bomber or military inspired cropped jacket over girlier Free People Dresses and tops. I am also planning on wearing gladiator sandals to oddset the florals in my wardrobe and make my look give off the effortless cool vibe.

Kellsey -March 26, 2009, 1:21PM

This spring, I’m going to wear a lot of floral sundresses and gladiator sandals. But the best thing about spring is wearing fun & brightly colored hair accessories and sunglasses!

Nicole -March 26, 2009, 1:26PM

bright colored relaxed tanks to wear with pretty linen pants or chino shorts. yarn hemp and embroidery floss for Friendship Bracelets for me and my friends:) delicate GOLD necklaces and a golden tannn

Mouse -March 26, 2009, 1:29PM

For spring I love long crinkle skirts, boots & peasant blouses.. I’ll be swapping out my heavy scarves & woolen hats for some cotton hats and thin shear scarves/ shawls.

Lynsie -March 26, 2009, 1:34PM

I can’t wait to wear my flowy silk scarves, white jeans, and ray bans! lots of fun colors, sunny yellows and bright teal! paint my toes and wear flip flops! Too bad Montana springtime is more or less winter until JULY!

Hayley Kisiel -March 26, 2009, 1:36PM

sun dresses and strappy sandals!

Erin -March 26, 2009, 1:49PM

I’d love to add and wear skirts all spring. I really like the blazer look with a cute skirt and oxford-like heels. Thanks!

Alicia -March 26, 2009, 1:55PM

I’m going to recycle more clothes this year. Find old stuff…cut it up…put it back together….new clothes!

I’ll mostly just be “shopping my wardrobe” and maybe embellishing some of my older clothes myself, updating them a bit. No shopping for new stuff for me! Haha. Painting on clothes is also another option I’ve been exploring…

Emily -March 26, 2009, 1:58PM

I am planning on updating my wardrobe by adding more bohemian touches. I did a lot of the same last spring and am excited to explore more bohemian looks. Last year, I had longgg hair that went well with the boho look, but I chopped my hair off mid-winter and will lighten the look of my wardrobe as well!
P.S. I check freepeople blog every day and love it!!

Allison -March 26, 2009, 2:01PM

I’d like to get more dresses and skirts into my wardrobe.

emily -March 26, 2009, 2:01PM

Bright basics and smiple high waisted skirts!

Hilary Kate -March 26, 2009, 2:02PM

i’m so excited, i love spring and all the new delicious clothes i get to bring into my everyday life. i’ve gotten some awesome big and small flowy hats and dresses that i cant wait to wear.
I’ve really been into the flowy tops that show some skin, floral prints and colored shorts for spring time
have a great spring!

Allyson -March 26, 2009, 2:05PM

I’m on the hunt for sheer breezy dresses and blouses, colorful ethnic sandals, a unique lace dress, imperfectly dyed rainbow batik print skirts, a rich velvet bag in a shocking color and lots of detailed hemp/leather/beaded/feathery hair accessories. Most of all I can’t wait to find a vintage style swimsuit with a tiny skirt!

Jen -March 26, 2009, 2:10PM

I am going to get tons of cute dresses, as well as simple jean shorts. This spring/summer I am going to accessorize with a cute headband each day (from Free People of course!)

Joy -March 26, 2009, 2:14PM

I am looking forward to bright colors, floaty dresses, florals, sandals, and short shorts! Oh, and lots of funky jewelry!!

Karina -March 26, 2009, 2:17PM

I am looking forward to wearing shorted loose fitting dresses in pastel colors. I was able to to wear one of my favorite combos the other day due to the warm weather! A 3/4 sleeve multicolored pastel green-blue-white knit dress with a mint angora and lace sweater, a big white belt and a gauzy triangle scarf. It felt so flowy and springish! I even got comments on how fresh and springy I looked!

Josi -March 26, 2009, 2:21PM

Intricate beaded sandals, thin flowy skirts, and homemade headbands.

Shanna Goddard -March 26, 2009, 2:25PM

I plan on updating with bright colors, some new accessories, and I am especially loving dresses right now. They are so comfy and cute, you really can’t go with cute spring dresses, most of which will even work for the summertime!! I am wearing a blue floral tunic dress right now!

Katie -March 26, 2009, 2:27PM

I really have no dresses I wear on a habitual basis, so I’m waiting to find something I love on Free People or elsewhere. I’m also trying to find a few laid-back sweaters which aren’t too casual and have a real notable individuality to them– that which is quintessentially Free People. Including my ever-donned jeans, my wardrobe is way too full of blues and blacks– kind of dreary, so I need to work on that…

iendee -March 26, 2009, 2:31PM

Light long tops, dresses, looking for a gladiator sandals, bright leggins, lots of knitted hats, shiny nails, hair bands, folk tops that artesans make in my country and lots of CYM (cyan, yellow and magenta) :)

g! -March 26, 2009, 2:35PM

I’m diggin nuetral, muted tones these days. Anything light and airy and mixed with some bold, over-the-top accessories. Also, I’m always into unordinary color combos like those that one might find at FP. Honestly, I’m just all over the place with what’s going on in fashion right now. So Ill be trying out things I would have never tried before… I feel like spring is the best time to test new things out. Everything is born again and so is my fashion palette this spring =)

A.j. -March 26, 2009, 2:47PM

patterned shorts and bold neckware!!!
Accesorizing is the best key!!!
And ofcourse a great pair of flops and perfectly manicured peets!!!

Alainna Bennett -March 26, 2009, 2:53PM

lots of loose dresses, liberty prints, and sandals

Elizabeth -March 26, 2009, 2:58PM

This spring I’m bringing back some basics with flare.
It’s going to be a plain shirt with a super cool scarf and maybe some funky shoes.
I’ll be wearing some of my classics of course and I don’t think I’ve worn new accessories in years. They need some history.
Love and Exist,

Kristen -March 26, 2009, 3:01PM

I plan to make myself a blue and white striped, 50s inspired summer dress.

Catherine -March 26, 2009, 3:01PM

I can’t wait to update my wardrobe with lots of floral spring dresses and other patterns! I really like the bohemian look too!

Samantha Spahr -March 26, 2009, 3:09PM

I’m planning on wearing more dresses and frilly skirts than I usually do. I also plan to wear moccassin boots and head bands with my outfits for a more vintage/hippie look!

Carrie -March 26, 2009, 3:13PM

I’m going for more feminine and softer colours this spring. A lot of natural fabrics, cottons, linens, etc in shades of green, blue and purple…soft and fresh. I’m also paying more attention to details such as buttons, stitching, cut, rolled sleeves, ruffles, etc. Most of all I’m looking for pieces that make me happy and aren’t seen on every other person on the high street!

Shandi -March 26, 2009, 3:16PM

Spring is Springing…in my closet!
To update my current wardrobe i’m revamping some of my current pieces by following the diy projects that have been posted on this blog!! Adding in statement jewelry with soft airy tops paired with skinny jeans and full skirts!!

christine -March 26, 2009, 3:18PM

I’m jumping on the coral bandwagon, I’ve got a few pieces and am on the lookout at thrift stores for some more.

Elizabeth -March 26, 2009, 3:22PM

I love all things eyelet + white + flowy + natural. Anything neutral, anything loose-fitting, anything comfortable. Clothes that let the season sink in.

Kristina -March 26, 2009, 3:29PM

Anything light and flowing! I’m in love with stuff with lace and a bit of victorian influence (possibly even layered lingerie?! hehehe) but I want to get into the earthy gypsy look too. More robust, richer colors with ethnic patterning. But then there’s also the bright primary colors with a pair of cute jeans and flip flops :) Something for every occassion!

Alyssa -March 26, 2009, 3:30PM

This spring I’m all about sweet vintage details and faded ripped up jeans. Paired with some ballet flats, it all looks really cool together!

Harley -March 26, 2009, 3:33PM

I will hopefully be doing some updating with some new FP fashions, and I am also on the lookout for some cute patterns to sew! :)

Cathy -March 26, 2009, 3:38PM

I’ve started wearing more skirts and sheer, fluttery fabrics in lighter colors.

Natalie -March 26, 2009, 3:39PM

I’m planning on making use out of my new minnetonkas paired with printed dresses and skirts

Ashley -March 26, 2009, 3:41PM

My spring attire will consist of comfortable dresses, lots of jewelry and strappy scandals! Anything that will let me run through a meadow freely.

Dee -March 26, 2009, 3:44PM

I’m definitely going to add more colour into my wardrobe.. I’m also looking for some khaki or brown basic bottoms that are comfy and light to be a staple in my outfits, ones that I can match with almost anything. On top of that I want vibrant shirts and scarves.. more Eastern or Indian inspired prints paired with simple outfits that make them stand out. I also want sandals that are comfy and I can wear anywhere. :)

Lara -March 26, 2009, 3:48PM

I wanna get high wasted skirts
solid colors ad fun patterns
also some new colorful tops from free people!

kayla -March 26, 2009, 3:49PM

i’m thinking about bright and bold colored tees with my favorite jeans and a bright headband for my spring revamp! thanks for the giveaway!

Jenna -March 26, 2009, 3:50PM

I can not wait to buy the Pointillism Dress from the Jan. 09′ catalog and match it with my bright red keds.

carley cuenca -March 26, 2009, 3:53PM

My spring wardrobe will consist of some recently purchased free people vest and some amazing gladiator sandals. I also love white and linen to accent the nice, spring weather.

maya -March 26, 2009, 3:55PM

more skirts and dresses!
i also CAN NOT WAIT for it to be warm enough to wear sandals!

Liz -March 26, 2009, 3:55PM

I am going to try and buy as little a possible, actually. I plan to renovate some of the old things I already have.

Minyon Ridley -March 26, 2009, 3:57PM

I just bought the peach bottom blazer and I love it, it’s well sticked and has real pockets !

Shanon -March 26, 2009, 3:59PM

I’m planning on experimenting with pairing the darker colors of winter with pastels this spring. I also have been fascinated with the drapey, flowery things that are in style now. my signature look right now is a flowy dotted skirt from last year, a bright pink tank top, layered with a dark gray tank top from the sale rack during the winter months :)

carley cuenca -March 26, 2009, 4:02PM

I will be rockin’ out some recently purchased free people vest and some beautiful gladiator sandals. I also love skirts, linen, and anything white to accent the beautiful ambience of Spring.

Chrissie -March 26, 2009, 4:02PM

This spring I will be rocking all florals!

Jen -March 26, 2009, 4:02PM

Loose baggy jeans & shorts! Distressed of course. Rolled up as well. I really look forward to getting out of skinny jeans and into something more Spring friendly this year! I love that bubble look rolled up loose shorts give too. I’m a total layer lover so my tops are ready for Spring already. Flow-y is my key desire with those. I also purchased a pair of loose fitting short boots I look forward to trekking around in once the Winter’s cold passes!

Chloe Bordages -March 26, 2009, 4:03PM

I plan to sew a few new summer dresses and make some alterations to pieces of clothing I already own, like embroidery or maybe add some beads and things.

ktpearpicker -March 26, 2009, 4:07PM

as i sit here and ponder my ideals for updateing my spring wordrobe i relize that i still can not fathum that spring is now upon us as the weather in the area in which i live still matians the crummy charatoristics of late winter; cold and gray….but suppose to respond apprpriotly i shall say i am planing on upadating my spring wordrobe with colorful flounchy skirts/dresses, and flowy tunics.

Liz -March 26, 2009, 4:13PM

I’m slowly adding more colour through my accessories. Example, I recently bought this amazing yellow purse, it’s gorgeous! Also I NEED to get a cute pair of gladiator sandals and nice high heels.

Laura -March 26, 2009, 4:15PM

I heart dresses. If I could wear a dress everyday I would. In fact, I just might try. The perfect dress with a fun pair of shoes, the occasional chunky, bright necklace, and every so often adding pattern/texture with some fun tights :) Oh! and something I love right now, headbands with large flowers on them. Love! Just the perfect little feminine touch to even the simplest of outfits.

Charlotte -March 26, 2009, 4:16PM

The answer to you question for me is I don’t plan on updating my wardrobe. I look at all the different things I envy at freepeople, go home, find stuff already in my closet and try to make a similar outfit. Of couse, nothing turns out as beautiful as all of the freepeople outfits.

Lizzy -March 26, 2009, 4:16PM

Updating? No. I am definitely donating all my oldies and getting all NEW clothes!! Tax return baby! I love light and not tight, bright and shiny, and cute and comfortable. I need new clothes for all my upcoming travels to sunny, nice weather outside of Seattle. I need a few staple jackets one that buttons up and one that zips up. I love hoods, but will try and not buy all items with them. I try and stick with bright, solid, and simple and jazz it up with the best accessories. I’m also a sucker for gold…

sara -March 26, 2009, 4:24PM

dresses. dresses. dresses! colorful, flowerful, flowy, light, short, fun dresses!

heyjenrenee -March 26, 2009, 4:24PM

This season, I’m totally into spring scarves and shawls – I might try to knit or crochet a couple of things for myself. I also want to try the DIY denim distressing that you featured here awhile back!

Christine Lorenz -March 26, 2009, 4:27PM

I’m planning to mix and match my current closet without having to buy any more clothing :) If I do make a purchase you can bet it will be from free people

Alex Lippman -March 26, 2009, 4:32PM

I’m going to study abroad in Pont-Aven, France this summer, so I’m going to try and dress super fashionably, while still maintaining my hippie-earthy-punk-prep vibe. This means lots of long skirts, layered tops, many bracelets, charm necklaces, Grecian sandals, boat shoes, tank tops, and flowers in my hair.

Priscilla -March 26, 2009, 4:32PM

Definitely more florals and perhaps a jumpsuit? All with a nice pair of shades. :D

emily lyles -March 26, 2009, 4:33PM

i am buying a TON of new dresses because I finally lost the weight I have been trying so hard to get off!! Dresses, scarves, and sandals will be my spring and summer wear!
and i would LOVE LOVE LOVE a wallet/file or phone holder/hairclip too!

Alex -March 26, 2009, 4:38PM

I plan on adding pieces with cut-out detailing, scalloped edges, eyelet, and ruffles galore. I’m thinking of adding some turquoise, yellows and lavenders to my wardrobe, some floral prints, and vintage jewelery, so I’m going for an overall soft and fresh look.

Kelsey -March 26, 2009, 4:39PM

I look forward to making my own harem pants and wearing it with gladiator sandles and a cute tank top with a sassy fedora

jamie lea -March 26, 2009, 4:41PM

the less matching, the better. get dirty, and not care… too much

Jess -March 26, 2009, 4:46PM

I’m going for comfy cutoffs (homemade from my old jeans), netural colors with pops of bright and unexpected color. And lots of bright headbands for when im working in my new garden!

Amanda -March 26, 2009, 4:48PM

I plan on getting more creative with the old things in my closet I’ve forgotten about. Scissors, bleach and bright colored dyes!!

Naurien -March 26, 2009, 4:57PM

So cute! I’m planning on making more of my own clothes and trying to pare down my wardrobe to things I wear frequently.

Jackie -March 26, 2009, 5:00PM

I update my wardrobe by wearing and making bright colored fabrics that can be worn everyday. I am looking forward to wearing sandals and silver and gold leggings this spring.

Alison -March 26, 2009, 5:01PM

I plan on wearing a lot more bright colors this spring, especially red and orange

katy -March 26, 2009, 5:02PM

more yellow! also, a cute new pair of sandals

Vendela -March 26, 2009, 5:07PM

This spring I really love melon colours and high waisted skirts in grays.
Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE gladiators, and polos!

lara jane -March 26, 2009, 5:10PM

I wear bright, springy colors year-round, but Spring is when I break out all of my light-weight skirts & dresses and ditch the tights. I love to feel the warmth and the breeze on my legs, I guess! I’m loving all of the FP convertible skirts so I need to add a few of those to my Spring wardrobe.
It seems like there is more embroidery and smocking on my Spring tops than any other season. I’d like to add a couple of vests to my closet; I’m seeing cute ones everywhere right now!
I think I start putting on more jewelry once the sweaters and jackets come off. A girl can never have too many necklaces!
I’m usually not antsy for the next season, but I’m ready to be on with the sweet, sunshiny days of Spring.

Josephine -March 26, 2009, 5:10PM

In the springtime, I love wearing flowy tunics, strappy sandals, and high-waisted skirts. It’s always fun to dress for spring, because it’s a big transition from winter, and we can finally wear short-sleeves!

whitney k. garrabrant -March 26, 2009, 5:12PM

I plan on adding fushia pinks to my wardrobe and calypso blues as well. I am hunting for the perfect peach colored shoulder bag and brown leather flats. My number one item that I am seeking to add to my collection is a jump suit. Wood earrings and rose gold jewlry are on my top choice for accessories and can’t forget my JAL brief case. Now I just I’m craving one of your items that are cute as hell! Thx for taking the time to put this contest together!!

aeryal -March 26, 2009, 5:14PM

i plan on wearing lots of bright dresses, gladiators, and big glassesss :]
and of course anything free people!

Laura -March 26, 2009, 5:31PM

Well, I just ordered a cute pair of grey mocs to wear instead of my more wintery sneakers. I also made a impulse buy, after a long day of work, and bought the cute Santa Rosa Coverup at Macy’s! It’s a great layering piece. I’ve also been scouring Etsy for some cute necklaces – so far I’ve scored a abalone shell feather from New Zealand and an Mucha-style female figure pendant from a great lady in Michigan. Hooray spring!

Rosebud -March 26, 2009, 5:32PM

I can’t wait for spring. I got a lot of items I purchased at the end of summer because, well, there were really cheap! and stylish! ;0)
So I have lots of prints and a pair of super cute green capris I can’t wait to wear….so it will feel like I have a lot of new clothes. I didn’t get to wear the clothes because it was already fall and chilly, but now, spring/summer’s coming back and I got all these awesome tops and stuff!
One thing I want to get is a new pair of gladiator sandals.
All hail spingtime!! =)

Allegra -March 26, 2009, 5:40PM

I’m going to mix all of my vintage gold jewelry with nature- inspired pieces like feather earrings, semi-precious rings, and a necklace with a shark’s tooth on it, and wear them with shorts and a loose t shirt.

Ned -March 26, 2009, 5:42PM

After a dark yucky winter, I like to brighten up the days with light dresses, cute skirts and shorts that reminisce of the old movies I used to watch as a kid… think the Parent Trap with Haley Mills…. and rainbow hair clips!!

Kate -March 26, 2009, 6:02PM

I want to wear cropped jeans with my cute flats and I might even try some bright spring colors.

Laurie H -March 26, 2009, 6:08PM

I want to get a cute little jean dress, some stylish looking shorts, some new colorful flats or sandals, and a few blouses I could wear at work and out (i’m liking yellow recently and small details like interesting seams, stitching or embroidery)

Nicole -March 26, 2009, 6:09PM

Those bags are so cute. This spring im going to add lots of color like blues yellows oranges also lots of white. Light jackets are also a must

Amanda -March 26, 2009, 6:16PM

I plan on trying out a new haircolour (I’m thinking redhead) and finding funky florals to match.

Kim -March 26, 2009, 6:19PM

Create a line of t-shirts featuring the crazy poet John Berryman. His life photos are spectacular.
purchase: teagan and sarah macduff shoes, concert going clothers, Matt&Kim esc.

Kelly Burke -March 26, 2009, 6:26PM

hmm lets see… I’m definitely thinking of wearing that whole light and airy look, just really comfortable and really pretty and delicate

Renée -March 26, 2009, 6:29PM

Spring is in the air…and with it I hope to stock up on some cute empire waisted tops. Tops and knits with oversized sleeves and frills will be a must!

Elizabeth -March 26, 2009, 6:34PM

I’m bringing my favorite fall fashion concept, layering, into the spotlight this Spring. It’s trickier to layer when the weather warms up, but I’m excited for it! I’m also adding a lot more saturated, bold color elements to my mostly black, white, grey and denim wardrobe.

Amy -March 26, 2009, 6:41PM

I am adding fun vintage fabric skirts to my spring wardrobe. Love anything with a vintage look.

Emily -March 26, 2009, 6:46PM

This spring I plan on adding light scarves and flowy tops-
I really like vintage looking shirts (which are sort of flowy) with skinny jeans or tights, flats or boots, and scarves. I also plan on adding short dresses and leggings to my closet (hopefully!)

Alex Rudolph -March 26, 2009, 6:58PM

Cute! For winter I went through a drab faze of all browns and blacks so for spring I’d really like to brighten it up with pastel green, blues and pinks, in a bohemian fashion, because I’m really into that right now :P

Jan McIllwain -March 26, 2009, 6:59PM

I have always rolled my long hair and have decided to wear it up in a messy bun every day to give it and myself a break. I also removed the contacts and went with glasses. It gives my eyes a real break especially during the spring w all the pollen blowing around. I also have started to wear a different color for each lip which has added a little different twist. It is also allowing me to use some of the lip colors I purchased but did not like when used solo. I feel free, people!!!

j -March 26, 2009, 7:04PM

i’m going to be adding some new greens, pastel colors, and light dresses with tough-looking shoes and sandals :) yay spring!!!

Emma -March 26, 2009, 7:04PM

I’m planning on getting pieces with interesting patterns and embroidery. Also some nice destroyed jeans! Can’t wait for springy weather!

Anonymous -March 26, 2009, 7:04PM

dresses. and more dresses.

Kaycee -March 26, 2009, 7:08PM

I’m super excited for spring to buy clothing with more vibrant colors than that of my winter wardrobe…like canary yellow, cobalt blue, magenta, etc. I definately need some flowy dresses in my wardrobe as well as some cotton miniskirts which i will probably belt and make highwaisted. Other than that, I do need a new denim jacket and shoes! sandals, heels, etc. definately going to need to buy some florals as well as some more lacey items

Sarah -March 26, 2009, 7:14PM

This spring I plan on wearing lots of dresses in neutral colors in a light material like cotton or gauze.

Alexandra -March 26, 2009, 7:19PM

Anything earthy and somewhat folkish inspires me so those themes will continue to show up in my closet this spring. I love the down-to-earth and unique feel these clothes bring me when I wear them :)

cece -March 26, 2009, 7:20PM

i plan on filling my wardrobe with eyecatching colors and floral patterns. i love everything billowy and lacey as well

Cass -March 26, 2009, 7:23PM

For spring I hope to wear soft pinks and basic cotton tees with ripped demin shorts and plaid sneakers

Megan -March 26, 2009, 7:32PM

My biggest update will be switching from tights to bare legs and flowy open-neck tees instead of cardigans. I plan on wearing a lot of girlie dresses in bright colors; anything that tricks me into believing I live at the beach.

katie -March 26, 2009, 7:33PM

lots of bright colors and cute dresses- and variety of crazy sunglasses to match.

Liz -March 26, 2009, 7:37PM

This summer I plan on picking up more vintage silky scarves and silver hair clips to pair with my favorite Free People tanks and tunics!

kit -March 26, 2009, 7:40PM

Going to incorporate some light sweaters from winter with airy and light dresses for spring. Lots of color, pair of thin leather boots to beat the breeze away and tons of string necklaces!

Amy -March 26, 2009, 7:42PM

Looking forward to get a crochet halter bralette at some point for layering. Chain mill necklaces are also on my wish list!

Gabby -March 26, 2009, 7:48PM

I’m looking to update with some light airy dresses and some denim cutoff shorts. Also need some new sandals and hippie-ish skirts.

Kate -March 26, 2009, 8:04PM

What a cool give-away! To update my wardrobe for spring, I’m getting my long hair cut short (a yearly spring-thing), bringing more linen pants and skirts out for wear again, and breaking out colours like cream pirate-pants, pale green skirts/shirts, rose-pink silk headscarfs, and brown leather shoes and bags.

Hilary -March 26, 2009, 8:13PM

For spring I am aiming for the flowy and light colored: sun dresses, flowy tanks, and soft cotton shorts. Cute headbands and sparkly earrings will accessorize.

Heather -March 26, 2009, 8:15PM

I plan on wearing lots of bright colors with fun embellishments and hand knitted gear

Nicole -March 26, 2009, 8:17PM

I’m definitely be going to adding a lot more brightly patterned dresses to my wardrobe and I am also loving rolled cuff denim shorts

Rachel -March 26, 2009, 8:25PM

More dresses!!! flowery and loose fitting.

jaranian -March 26, 2009, 8:37PM

How are you planning on updating your wardrobe for spring?
Refining anything I already own. This includes tailoring pieces I have been reluctant to wear, or fashioning them up-to-date to the latest trend.
Anything special, unique colors, or silhouettes you’re into for spring?
Bows & bold statement, exposed zippers are in. So these are items I am more leaning towards in purchasing that is different this spring.
Special? I just bought a vintage Art Deco necklace. :)
Colors? Nude! For sure, but with clean dark edges to accentuate my silhouette so I don’t appear naked from afar.
& lastly the nouveau ‘2009 Silhoutte’ you ask? I believe the waist line is back & something all women should grow to accentuate. I have a literal perfume bottle body so wearing a free waist line is a big no-no. Hence, Bandaged new wave 80’s dresses, here I come!

Megan -March 26, 2009, 8:48PM

i really like flowy tops that makes you breath. Just anything that stands out that no one has, expecially things like in the march issue of freepeople! i love you guys and the cute give away!

lori -March 26, 2009, 8:49PM

I plan on accessorizing more with vintage & vintage inspired pieces and more of the bohemian style. I’m really loving the 70’s vibe like Stevie Nicks during her Rumours period!

Rencey -March 26, 2009, 8:57PM

im going to update with bursts of color, lots of light jackets, loosey goosey short, and fun hairpeices.

Annie -March 26, 2009, 9:08PM

Lots of bright colors! It’s spring! And more girly stuff–dresses, florals. And of course the gladiator sandal craze I will be giving into…

Melissa DiCerbo -March 26, 2009, 9:17PM

I am planning on getting a few bright colored pieces to add to my wardrobe. I am also going to buy a couple pairs of cute shoes that will go with my dresses. I love wearing dresses!

julie -March 26, 2009, 9:24PM

i definately want to wear high waisted skirts and more color!! all winter i’ve been stuck in white black and gray! i also want lots of strappy flat sandals! can’t wait for warm weather!

Missy -March 26, 2009, 9:32PM

I have been looking for skirts that hit at the knee or just below (20-22″), that have a pull on style that aren’t too full or too narrow, just sort of in between. I am looking for gray items. Tops that have short sleeves (have enough sleeveless/tanks). A nice lightweight jacket that skims over the hips and butt. I am always looking for anything in a jersey material. Capris or bermudas that I can wear casual or dress up for work.

Kaitlin Mackie -March 26, 2009, 9:39PM

Go big or go home! Big colors, prints, and flowers will keep it freshh. I also am planning on embracing the 20’s silhouette and rockin some feathers.

laura -March 26, 2009, 9:41PM

I would love to find some capris that don’t look little-girlish. Same goes for skirts. I’d also love to get some greens and purples in my wardrobe.

I’m updating for spring by doing a little spring cleaning first! With what’s left I’m going to embellish some shirts a little myself, cut off some jeans to make capris or shorts, and of course get some new dresses or skirts!

kyle mackenzie -March 26, 2009, 9:53PM

Moira -March 26, 2009, 10:27PM

I’m so inspired by Isabel Marant’s Spring 09 collection. It’s Free People-meets-Paris; boots with jean shorts, embroidered tunics, beautiful cuts and interesting prints, all put together in the most natural way. Gorgeous.

Manuela -March 26, 2009, 10:44PM

Since I’m on a budget, I’m thinking of buying a couple of dresses, ranging from tight to flowy, in solid colors and pairing them with some wonderful and colorful hand-made jewelry I received from a friend who lives in Colombia.

gretchen -March 26, 2009, 10:48PM

Lots of earthy reddish tones (orange, peach, etc) with whirts shorts or capris. Long necklaces and chunky bracelets. Long tank tops and short cardigans.

rachel -March 26, 2009, 10:53PM

Ahh spring. The season of warmth and beauty. This spring is all about simplicity yet boldness for me. My wardrobe will be seeing some new dresses that accentuate my soon to be tan legs. Some beads, boots, and belts to make any look complete. Its all about the look of effortlessness with a little pizzaz to make everyone feel the beauty of spring.

Those bags are cuteeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :) To update my wardrobe I am going to look at Free People and buy some whites and yellows and even tie dyed clothing. Also some shorts! :) I really like white and light pastels! I am looking forward to going to Free People next weekend before I leave for my Spring Break Trip with my friends.

Linda -March 26, 2009, 11:30PM

I plan on accessorizing. Shoes are fantastic lately so I will also add some of those. I want to look confident in my clothes. I will wear cropped pants for sure and lots of cap sleeved dresses. …and color… and skirts…

Carissa -March 26, 2009, 11:36PM

LOTS more dresses!!!!!!! I rely way too much on jeans and black pants. I want to show off the legs and treat myself to a new pair of heels!

Anonymous -March 27, 2009, 12:25AM

I’ll be wearing bright floral patterns and solids. Also I’ll be wearing flowy FP dresses in salute to summer!

molly -March 27, 2009, 12:38AM

lots of skirts and florals. gladiator sandals, boots. simple, pure colors. i also plan on doing more embellishing of clothing i already own. i’m going to spain in a week and hope to find inspiration for my spring wardrobe there!

shari -March 27, 2009, 12:43AM

i’ve been rekindling my love with my old denim jacket so hope to bring that out after a few years’ absence. also i want to wear more cute sandals rather than my usual plain old navy flip flops. and maybe some more funky bracelets.

Yuma -March 27, 2009, 12:46AM

I’m trying to reuse as much of my clothes as possible, so I’m planning on getting things that I can layer with, and play around with so I can create also a lot of different outfits in one.

Jacqueline -March 27, 2009, 12:46AM

Brighter, bolder colors for sure! Lots of A-line dresses, flowing tops over shorts, colorful and flowery tunics, leather jewelry, strappy sandals..

danielle -March 27, 2009, 12:46AM

colored tights! :)

Heidi -March 27, 2009, 12:49AM

I definately want some rugged looking cut off shorts cute swim suits and flowy drapy tops! Can’t wait for spring!

mdnyc -March 27, 2009, 12:57AM

Im planning on wearing more indian flavored designs. Im getting married in September and all my bridesmaids are wearing Sari’s. (I am the white midwestern girl, he is Indian) So I’m going to start the indian celebration early! Bright colors! Tangerine Orange, Electric Blue, Lime Green, Magenta’s!

brenda -March 27, 2009, 1:07AM

well i was thinking of making some sort of bohemian ballerina look, a mix of vintage jewlery, soft skinny clothes but with unique prints and fabrics.

Jane White -March 27, 2009, 1:39AM

I’m going to invest in some ragid/worn white skinny jeans.. I’m hoping to find a great pair that are a semi loose fit and casual, to wear with earthy/strapy leather flats and light pastel summer tops. Maybe even throw on a cozy scarf to keep warm while I wait for summer time to get here!! : )

Lily -March 27, 2009, 1:52AM

I plan to get myself a new pair of sandals! I love all those strappy sandals that i see everywhere. I would also be wearing more floral skirts and i love the tie dye scarves too.

Ains -March 27, 2009, 2:17AM

I’m sewing most of it! So excited. Lots of blue and patterns and tunic tops.

Sunny Hartley -March 27, 2009, 3:00AM

I am loving the Spring tunics popping up everywhere. I’m obsessed with them and I’m wearing them with all kinds of things including shorts, leggings and skinny pants and topping them off with sandals or boots. I also love adding little details like lacey bandeaus for more texture!
My favorite colors for Spring have actually been pretty basic! Black, White, Grey, and all shades of Blue have been my faves so far!

Jess -March 27, 2009, 5:22AM

I am definitley looking to update! I love my skinny pants, but I am excited to collect some nicely tailored trousers, I’m also crazy about tucking in shirts lately, so hopefully I’ll stock up on some oxford shirts…maybe I’ll scope out the little boys department for some plaid! Btw, love this blog!

anntje -March 27, 2009, 5:35AM

for spring i want to switch to light weight, super comfortable loose clothing. to make the clothing a little more fitted i will opt for high waists and belts/sashes. more knits and more natural fibers. yay spring!

Danielle -March 27, 2009, 6:57AM

Really into the idea of putting some Folk inspired items into my spring waredrobe. Lots of embroidery and bright colors. Maybe some more dresses as well.

Charity Remington -March 27, 2009, 8:13AM

My husband is stationed in Valdosta, GA. We just found out that we are transferring to Cheyenne, Wyoming. So in keeping with the Cowboy (girl) tradition over there, I am thinking a Jewel meets Daisy Duke look. Can’t wait!

Anonymous -March 27, 2009, 8:28AM

I am planning on brightening up the color pallet a little with saturated pastels like light coral pink, cornflower blue, mint green. I am looking for destroyed denim shorts and light-weight shirts. I am also looking for pendant necklaces that are made of string or twine.

Cornelia -March 27, 2009, 8:30AM

For Spring this season, I am planning on brightening up the color pallet a little with saturated pastels like light coral pink, cornflower blue, mint green. I am also looking for pendant necklaces that are made of string or twine, detroyed denim short shorts, and cape shirts.

amanda w. -March 27, 2009, 8:42AM

I’m really excited to wear white this spring! I live in Florida so wearing tunics and tank tops and thin tops is essential. I’m also really excited to wear bright colors and lots of embroidery!

Stevie -March 27, 2009, 9:21AM

To change it up this spring, I’m going girly! My usual garb of a graphic tee, chunky sweater, raybans, skinny jeans, and my converses is out, and I’m going to instead opt for something more classic, flowy, and feminine.

Pam -March 27, 2009, 10:09AM

Much more cute vintage in bright prints like Lilly Pulitzer over old worn jeans. Lots of chic sun dresses with flip flops!!

Nacolynn Begay -March 27, 2009, 10:18AM

SPRINGY SKIRTS: I just bought one to embroider the bottom. More skirts and some knit tops. I don’t own many knit tops but am adding to the collection (just purchases some from your “sister” store, Anthro)…and of course, jewelry and basic brown, leather sandals.

holly -March 27, 2009, 10:23AM

I am taking sewing classes, and learning the art of “altered couture”…by using materials and textures that inspire me, and remind me of spring…I hope to embelish, elaborate, and embroider…my pre-existing clothes and new finds, to create an authentic line of “me-made” originals:-)

For the spring, I hope to get alot of colorful, flowy clothing for my wardrobe. To spice it up a bit, I hope to get a cute pair of beaded sandals as well. :) I love spring….

Alyssa D. Mrozek -March 27, 2009, 11:00AM

For the spring, I plan on filling my wardrobe with lots of cute flowy, colorful dresses. Light outfits to wear to the beach that flow in the wind are cute as well. I loooovvvee spring….

cresta -March 27, 2009, 11:29AM

I am looking forward to wearing my green hunter boots with my little short dresses and tunics. My new thing is adding a little bit of lace to the mix. I came across an article on wearing a slip under a very short skirt. It created a little sexy lacey look which I am all about. I have been going to thrift store after thrift store to find the perfect length slip. I am hunting for a black slip with a lot of lace trim and a cream slip with a little bit of lacey trim. I have not found my sole mates yet, but that is the beauty and addiction of shopping at a thrift store. I believe this new spring look is easy to achieve, but it will look like you went out and bought a new dress, tunic, or skirt. I love taking something old and reinventing it! It speaks SPRING!!!

Sarah -March 27, 2009, 12:09PM

For spring I’m loving the boho look….flowy tops, dresses, leggings, etc. Also, a pair of grecian inspired sandals this spring is a must! I’m definitely going to look for items that can be mixed and matched to create several different outfits and thus not dip into my budget as much!

pruittfpgirl -March 27, 2009, 12:34PM

OK, the giveaway is now officially closed! Thank you all for participating! Look for the winners to be announced in the next couple of hours!! :):)

skunkboy creatures -March 27, 2009, 12:37PM

I’m so in love with dresses… so spring will bring MORE dresses into my closet, lots of high waisted skirts, and the most lovely yellow ballet flats I just bought yesterday. I’m also loving sheer knee socks.

Claire -March 27, 2009, 12:51PM

This spring I’m going for sophisticated and more form fitting clothes. I may find myself a new pair of boots to match with an adorable dress for going out or a comfortable one piece outfit to match with some heels. Spring means new beginnings and fresh colors, and that’s exactly what I want out of a new wardrobe. Some nice neutrals (besides black) that will go with anything and lavenders, pinks, and greens to reflect the colors of spring. I’m so excited about updating my wardrobe…I can’t wait!

The Tilted Tulip -March 27, 2009, 1:38PM

Lots and lots of floral sun dresses are on my horizon…

Monica McCormick -March 27, 2009, 1:44PM

I’m going to get some more white/beige peasant type tops, high waisted skirts, and white skinny jeans ! I also need a spring-colored tote to switch over from my winter purses…

Ruth Bauer -March 27, 2009, 11:41PM

I am super obsessed with the distressed jeans you have this season. I have been trying for years to do it myself. IMPOSSIBLE. I have the white ones on order and it will go with all of my tunics this spring. I love colors with white. Wow, I can’t wait.

Amin -March 29, 2009, 5:54PM

This Spring I plan on wearing lemon yellows, pastels mixed with gold, and silver metallics, flat shoes to make a run for it when need be
silhouettes are very deconstructed unrefined edges, mixed and matched graphic prints monochromatic silver and gold blocks, flower appliqued collage shirts, army green mixed with gold and silver tye dyed shades of blue

Danielle -March 30, 2009, 10:14AM

I’ve been adding light jackets, dresses in bright colors and much needed structure pieces. Also, some subtle animal prints and wedge sandals for spring.

Chrissy -March 30, 2009, 4:34PM

All Free People!! One piece oufits, dresses, and beautiful pastel colors!

Stefanie -March 31, 2009, 12:05AM

I’m thinking classic spring pastels, but in modern cuts and paired with cutoff denim shorts, in colors other than classic blue. I also plan on adding flowy but short dresses, simple light jackets and peep-toe boots.

Cat -March 31, 2009, 11:27AM

I love prints with bright colors. I’ll be in Split in Croatia this summer and I am soooooo excited for a new wardrobe with lots of FP :) hopeing to see some new bright color flats and printed summer dresses :)

Caroline Lannon -March 31, 2009, 3:40PM
