Yesterday, a friend asked me what's going to be "in" for spring. The truth is, I have no idea. But I do have a few things wishlisted for warmer weather. I am too poor to buy more than, oh, two of these items, but I can use them as starting points for thrifting and trading either way.

It's no secret that I love orange, but for spring, I'm wondering if I can pull off a brighter orangey-red shade. I'm thinking of starting with a piece I can wear away from my face just to test things out. Also, the skirt in the middle is pure perfection, take it from my super fashionable friend Jen, of orange-red lipstick inspiration.

On a different note, my 1992 self is calling and it says that backpacks and chino shorts are all the rage for spring. But seriously, I can't explain my sudden desire to own a leather backpack, preferably this perfect one that my best friend from college posted on her blog and that sold instantaneously after she did so (thanks for shattering my backpack dreams, Caitlin).
I'd love your input--do you have any insight on what will be cool for spring? (My uncoolness is well documented, so I need all the help I can get :)
