We've asked some of our favorite fashion bloggers to share their must-buys for spring. Here is part 2 of our series.
Joie Sharona Leather Platform Sandals, $325 at saks.com
"My must-have item for spring would have to be the caged platform because it is the perfect summer wardrobe addition! Summer is all about showing skin and Joie's Sharona is just the shoe to take you there. I love it in misty-rose because the softer palette balances the heel height. It is the perfect way to wear something feminine while still embracing a downtown edge with a modern urban feel."
Jessica Baukol, The Shoe Goddess
Diane von Furstenberg Paradise Print Sheath Dress, $385 at saks.com
"Spring season is screaming for prints, and a bright color print sheath dress is the ultimate spring 'It' item. It gives you just enough color to set the mood and can be very versatile: wear it with a jacket to a day in the office, or without, accessorized with a statement necklace for a dressy night out. DVF is the queen of prints, and I'm loving this artistic, fluid print in romantic hues with just a few pops of red. It is perfectly draped at the waist, making this dress body forgiving, just in case you are still working on your healthy spring diet..."

Kork-Ease 'Bette' Wedge Sandal, $144.95 at nordstrom.com
"I'm enamored with the vintage trend and so I'm bringing back these Kork-Ease wedges for my must-have pick. And believe it or not, they're actually a multi-faceted fashion force: their neutral-toned strappy good looks pair perfectly with summer's colorful prints and bright hues, the thick wedge adds height but keeps you comfy, and I mean really, who doesn't want their legs to look longer?"
Morgan Williams, Running With Heels
Ruffle Pleated Coat, $44 at forever21.com
"There's nothing like an awesome coat, in one of this season's must have colors, to get you in the mood for spring."
Kathryn Finney, The Budget Fashionista
Magnes Sisters Starlight Clutch$197 at haydenharnett.com
"This clutch is trendy yet classic. I love the pop of color this shade of blue can bring to any outfit day or night. The gold chain strap and gold studs are on trend and not overly done either. Plus, I love the affordable price!"
Natalie Zee Drieu, Coquette
Prada Straw and Leather Shopper, $1295 at bergdorfgoodman.com
"Straw bags are so light and fresh for spring, but some look too much like a beach tote. The Prada Straw and leather shopper is the best of both worlds--it's straw yet totally chic with the leather detailing and sweet rosette."
Anne L. Fritz, The Jet Set Girls
Bottega Veneta Raffia Wedge Sandals, $820 at net-a-porter.com
"A statement wedge sandal is my must have shoe for this spring. Pair these Bottega Veneta raffia wedges with skinny cargo pants for city weekends, with an embellished tunic for island retreats or with a shimmery nude-toned sundress for outdoor cocktail parties. I love how the brown raffia adds an interest of texture and contrast to the leather. Although the wedge is a towering 5 inches, the multiple straps and ankle ties keep feet snug and secure. Don't forget the finishing touch - a pedicure with Chanel's Vernis Particulière #505!"
