I find myself making more purchases during the spring months than any other time of year. My wallet hibernates for winter since I’m rarely removing my go-to sweaters and heavy wool coat. But as soon as those spring looks hit the magazines, blogs and stores, I have the MAJOR itch to shop. I’m aching to replace all those heavy layers (even if it’s not practical yet in upstate NY) with some pretty, feminine details and signature spring prints and colors . Think ruffles, pintucking, flowers, lace, nautical stripes, and other delicate “extras” that foreshadow the May flowers.
I often purchase my tops in the trendy, less expensive stores, but I always look for details that give the top a higher-quality look. Something as simple as a covered button can transform your piece from shabby to chic. Here are nine pretty tops, under $50, that can help you bring a little spring into your closet without breaking the bank.

Okay, now that we’ve done our part beginning the transition to spring, maybe Mother Nature can do her part?
