spring essentials

As Spring approaches, we are all experiencing a myriad of climates! Jenna has her heat waves in Southern California, Emily and Nicole are seeing snow, rain, sun, wind, and anything else mother nature can throw our way in Utah. Either way we’re ready to shed our Winter layers and get ready for something new. We picked our favorite transitional pieces on  Zappos and here’s what we’re loving!


As soon as the snow melts I’m ready for Utah’s beautiful hikes again! My favorite outdoor brands have such amazing selectiions on Zappos and I am a notorious phone shopper so I always love using the Zappos app, and its one the of the few that is as easy to use as the desktop version.spring essentials

Even if the Valley is super warm the mountains always have that crisp cold air. Loving this hoodie and warm beanie as options to keep warm or shed into this Nike backpack.spring essentials It holds everything and is the sturdiest material so its great for getting a good hike beating. Also, my latest sneaker obsession. These have so much personality and I love to wear them whether or not I’m exercising.spring essentials If you need some local hike ideas, here is a post of our favorites! I’ve done all of these and each is amazing and doable with kids!spring essentials


It’s officially tradition – every Spring I scoop up a couple colors of Natives for my boys! spring essentials


I’ve been putting them in Natives since before Hayes could walk. They’re the absolute best for warm weather. Super soft, no blisters, breathable and waterproof, and wearing them without socks is no prob, smell-wise. Cal still doesn’t love taking a pic, what can you do?spring essentialsThey come up with the coolest prints each season and the Jefferson is perfect for my boys’ narrow feet. Nothing makes me feel more hopeful for warm temps than seeing Natives delivered to my porch. (MARBLED // BLACK)spring essentialsFor my own picks I can’t help but grab a few trendy items each season to help bring my fairly basic wardrobe up to speed. I love that the tassel trend is carrying through this season and this neutral color sandal goes with EVERYTHING. Such a good deal, too! (Steve Madden Daryyn) I paired them with a floaty maternity top and raw edge denim. Raw edge denim and a straight leg “girlfriend” fit are also huge trends this Spring! Why not combine both? I cut my own in this high-low style. I figured I’ve seen high low tops and skirts, why not jeans, too? Spring EssentialsSandals are always on the top of my list when transitioning to Spring. I always grab Hayes a new pair of Havaianas for the pool (Cal wears his Natives in the water and isn’t a huge fan of the flip flop) and I might never take these Adidas Adilettes off. Perfect shoe for when you just can’t bend over one more time! The arch support is awesome too.spring essentials


Since there is no Spring in California we’re heading right on in to Summer! I love to get a couple really great dresses that I can function as Mom in but also keep me cool — Free People is always THE BEST at achieving that effortless style. I love the selection of FP that Zappos provides, they pick the best of the best and this dress is no exception. It truly is so gorgeous in person.

Every Spring I like to buy a new pair of gold flip flops. They get worn over the year but I love to have a fresh new pair moving in to the summer season. These Yosi ones are flawless and so comfortable. Gold goes with everything so they are such a staple in my wardrobe.zappos4

And since I’m always running late I wear a watch, even to the pool! I love the way a good dress accessorized with a watch makes it loo like a very intentional look.
