With the change of the seasons and my annual closet swap-over coming up this weekend, I decided I’d refresh this handy post about where I like to shop from for Springtime.
Today’s post is intended to be a sort of directory for shopping this season. I know a lot of you guys also like to stick to streamlined silhouettes and timeless classics and I hope that my edit from the current collections at some of my go-to retailers will be a handy resource for you! I also have my Where Meghan Shops page in case you’re looking for additional inspiration.
Where I’m Shopping From This Spring
I was inspired to write this post after a conversation with a friend last year who felt stuck in Spring shopping. She doesn’t shop too often but rather likes to take care of getting new pieces at the onset of each season. She was coming up short with where to look having felt equal parts overwhelmed by the options and also disappointed to see what retailers were pushing this season.
Knowing her style I began to rattle off some places to look and it got me to thinking about how I am shopping this season and how I am looking to to update my wardrobe.
I attempted to do the heavy lifting for you here having selected the pieces I like best from each brand’s current new arrivals and staple pieces. I for one am so ready to return to striped tees and pretty lace and linen and especially crochet this season, too.
All year round essentials. Great button downs and tees and jackets. Their French Fry tee is a personal favorite.
Super special and unique investment dresses and knits that are sure to get you noticed. In the past three years that I’ve been shopping the brand, they have become my number one spot I go to when looking for a really special piece. Read my La Ligne Sweaters Review.
Staple sweaters, effortless dresses and other timeless basics you can wear now and all year round. Read my Jenni Kayne Apparel Review.
My favorite French brand and so good for pretty dresses, lace pieces and summer-y knits.
& Other Stories
One of my go-to European brands. I love their coats, dresses and blouses in particular. I size up given the European cuts.
So many of my Spring and Summer dresses are from Reformation. I love their linen and I love their midi dresses in particular. I always size up in this brand and I recommend you order two of every size to ensure a good fit. They have pretty fast returns and good customer service to help, too. Their dresses honestly make such good dresses for girls trips, wedding guest attire and vacation but I also wear mine out and about in NYC a ton, too.
Striking bags that look designer but will cost you substantially less.
Versatile bags that’ll complete any spring outfit.
So many good new arrivals for the new season!
Versatile and comfortable investment shoes of which I own so many – they are *so* good. Life is too short to be getting blisters and be in pain from your shoes. It’s time to upgrade. Click through for plenty more color options of these styles I like.
For affordable basics that you’ll get a lot of wear out of. Don’t miss my Tips for Shopping on Amazon Fashion and check out my New Spring Picks from Amazon Fashion.
A favorite of mine year round but I definitely buy more in Spring/Summer. They have great little jackets and dresses in particular. And their bags this season are gold.
So good of late! Breezy dresses, cute swimwear and shoes and loads more I like. And my favorite linen button down (size up! See it on here) and raffia bag are back this year!
I shop Madewell more in Spring than any other season and this year’s latest collection is G-O-O-D. I mean this crochet cardigan!? Obsessed. I haven’t remembered liking this many items from Madewell in recent memory.
Casual staples for work and weekend. I was pretty disappointed by Everlane’s Fall and Winter offerings but Spring is more hopeful!
Investment pieces that you can style a myriad of ways. Their pants, jackets and tees are personal favorites of mine.
Well made, well priced pieces from this beloved British retailer. I size up due to the European fits. (And a friendly PSA they also do the best kids clothes for baby gifts!)
Net a Porter
For investment pieces with impact.
Me + Em
Feminine, special pieces that always get you the “where is that from” question! As it is a British brand I always size up at least one size so I definitely recommend you reference their size chart.

I agree with your friend about the styles that are coming out this spring, not a fan. The 90’s were not the greatest for style (grunge, etc.) not sure why they’re bringing it back. Also, what is with all the crop tops? Unless you are stick thin and are under 25 or so (just my thinking here) crop is not flattering for most women. One other place to look for a myriad of styles including a fabulous shoe selection is Anthropologie. Happy shopping everyone!
When the current fashions are not my cup of tea, I take a pause in buying clothes & work my closet hard. I focus on replenishing underwear & socks. And, it’s time to splurge on jewelry & scarves.
I am so ready for the Reformation store to open in Atlanta. I feel like I always order 15 things and maybe keep one. Ready to try it all on in person. The style right now is so all over the place, trying to focus on basics and things I truly truly love.

I went to one in LA this week and was so disappointed at the lack of inventory in the store. They have SO much online but in the store it was so limited. Hope the ATL store is better!
HI; I just found Alex Mill and just ordered the sweater you featured, how do you find the quality?
It’s really good! As mentioned it’s become a favorite in recent years
I feel the exact same. I really do miss the old Madwell (classic cuts and actually made well.) Only perusing their denim these days.
