spring sale at basic boutique

oh, how i love sale season...truly my favorite time of year. today, i'm oohing and aahing over everything basic boutique has just marked's a really lovely mix of spring-friendly items and a few pieces definitely worth storing away until next fall. a few of my faves:

i love the unique styling on this gorgeous silk blouse by twinkle - marked down to $138, this might just be the perfect spring blouse. use it as a shell during the day, dress it up with a pencil skirt at night, or jeans on the weekend.

something about this gorgeous dolman sleeve cashmere sweater by twig just sings to me. not sure if it's the dramatic cut, paired with the incredibly subtle, neutral color, or if it's the way they've made cashmere look light as a feather, and drape just beautifully - whatever it is, pick it up for $129, before someone else does!

if i worked in an office, i'd nab this crisp cotton lantern sleeve jacket by cynthia vincent, and i'd use it as my suit alternative all summer long. the styling has that perfect blend of classic polish and high fashion, and it's on sale for less than $200.

this swing dress by rachel pally doesn't seem like much at first glance, but give it a second look, and the potential really starts to unfold. that gorgeous neckline is perfect for girls with a smaller bust - it really gives you something different to show off, no wonderbra required. the pattern is subtle and chic, and the jersey fabric drapes like silk with none of the fuss. best of all, this baby is 70% off - for $112, you have all of your summer parties covered!

check out all of the finds at basic boutique's spring extravaganza - you're sure to find something you can't live without.
