"Excessorize" for Spring: Part Deux

Here it is girls (and maybe guys??) - we promised 20 spring must-haves and here is the second helping!

11. Cage Shoe
The cage shoe comes in all different varieties.  The brunette would choose this one below in cognac for a great, versatile spring color:

I also wouldn't mind this shoe in black or beige (or both)  :o)

12. Oversized Clutch
Isn't everyone thrilled to have an evening bag that will hold all your junk?!?

These clutches are everywhere and at every price point.  The blonde thinks this one might be necessary for our upcoming girls' weekend!

13. Short, Painted Nails
Typically, there is a "must have" nail color of each season, but this spring your options are endless.  Everyone always loves to wear their fun corals and pinks.  Black is also here to stay, but it seems taupes/grays with  purple are the "most current" colors for the season.   

Chanel's Particuliere nail color
OPI offers these wonderful shades...

You Don't Know Jacques, Over The Taupe, Fiji Wiji Fawn, Parlez-vous OPI

14. Peep Toe Booties
The blonde loves the peep toe bootie; the brunette does not.  But the brunette's Easter dress needs this shoe so she's willing to make an exception:
And she wouldn't object to this one either:)  The blonde loves this shoe and thinks peep toe bootie are the perfect transition they are cute and current!

15. Statement necklaces are still here!
And this spring they are even bigger!

Necklaces from Express and Banana Republic.  The necklace in the center pic is amazing in a very boho-Cali here to see a better pic - love it!

16. Nude Patent Shoes
The blonde will testify that these are the most versatile shoes ever.  A nude patent shoe will always be the answer to "what kind of shoes would I wear with this" - the blonde swears by her peep toes, but the pump is classic too.

I'll just take these by Guiseppe Zanotti - k, thanks!
In my dreams - but I would settle for these by Guess...

17. Bracelets, Bracelets, Bracelets
The blonde is the bracelet girl - always tons of bangles mixed with bracelets!  This look is so easy to wear...Forever 21 has great pieces that work well mixed with others so just keep piling them on!
The brunette always gets bangles stuck on her hands and they drive her crazy so cuffs or a bracelet with a clasp is her go-to.  This one from Free People is on her spring wish list.  Like majorly. 

18. Studded or fringed bags

The brunette recently purchased this one from the Buckle and is excited to try it out this weekend at the races!  I think it will be the perfect size to hold my stuff - but I can just let it hang and not worry about it!  P.S. It looks way cuter un-cinched.  Comes in black too!!

This is my first time w/ a cross-body bag - we'll see how it goes!

19. Art Deco
Lovin' all the art deco jewelry that you can spot everywhere...
From Banana Republic, Forever 21 and Forever 21

20.  And this is the essential of all essentials...
