The start of March means spring is just days away, and there’s plenty of things to pick up with warmer weather in mind — like a lightweight puffer jacket from Zara, a pair of Clarks moccasins for her, and colorful home essentials to get you feeling brighter, even if the weather’s gray.
Stylish (without being too fashion-y), functional (without being boring), and guaranteed to only look better with age, this gender-neutral Filson bag ticks all of our boxes for a solid tote.
We found lots of on-sale clothing from Nordstrom to help you transition into spring — like this tangerine blouse from Eloquii that would look nice with your favorite jeans or a nice pair of shorts when it’s warmer.
This convertible jacket from the North Face has a detachable fleece lining and adjustable hood for protection from all of the elements.
These moccasin-inspired platform Clarks for her offer a subtle twist on the classic Wallabee along with a little bit of height.
Wherever you’re located these days, bring a touch of California sunshine with this candle from Mar Mar Los Angeles that’s a blend of santal, mesquite, and agarwood.
If you’re redecorating, consider this Strategist-approved sofa from West Elm that we called “comfortable and nap-able.” Just use the code SAVEMORE at checkout.
If the zip-up hoodie you’ve been wearing since we started working from home last March is looking a little worse for wear, here’s a new one (that looks a little American Apparel ca. 2009) — and at nearly 60 percent off, you can pick up a backup just in case.
If you’re on the hunt for new sneakers, try this sleek pair from Zara that has a pop of zebra print.
And if you’re still in the market for winter gear, this lightweight puffer is perfect for the last few weeks of cold weather (or to store for next year).
We found these crisp cotton sheets in Brooklinen’s Last Call section, which would coordinate perfectly with …
… this embroidered indigo quilt set from Jungalow, which makes some of our favorite living-room décor.
