Amber's {shopping} Notebook: Bright & Bold

I am noticing as the season shifts I am drawn to a few things: bright colors, bold patterns and anything pertaining to the 70's trend. I'm loving all the bell bottom jeans and fun colored blouses out there. I am also noticing how skirts are a really great wardrobe acquisition because they can mixed and matched so well.
Bring on the bright colors!

Some of my recent purchases include:
-This midi yellow chevron dress from Urban Outfitters (that I swear looks better on then on the model and it reminds me of dresses my Mom used to wear in the 70's and in the 8-'s they resided in my dress-up box)
-This colorful Urban Outfitters dress also arrived I (It has a slightly longer hemline then I was expecting and I love it. I the long hemline will make this dress more useful then just a beach dress)
-And these Forever 21 Skirts. When I sized up in the lace one the length seemed very versatile for spring and summer outfits and a flouncy forever 21 skirt (similar to this style) that I might just wear everyday when I get a bit of sun on my legs.
-I also thrifted a polka dot J crew skirt, and picked up a few items from H&M. Like a hot pink and orange skirt on mega sale and this bohemian jumper from H&M that I had to have after seeing it on Gisele. Who buys something after seeing it on Giselle!?
What items have you been purchasing for spring?
