In the first installation of our ‘Editor’s Picks’ series we searched the mall for our favorite stand-out spring finds, and we are sharing them with you!

Since sometimes (okay, pretty much all the time) we feel like we live at the mall, you could say we have all the insider info on the new fun products making their way to store racks and shelves, so we’re putting this to use by sharing with you some of our favorite finds we see each week! In our very first ‘Editor’s Picks’ post, we stopped by some of our stores to put a spotlight on some ‘we need’ spring products that have recently made their way onto shelves. Hear from us about our favorite finds below…

I absolutely love finding fun and unique items in unsuspecting places! If you’re anything like me, you like to change out your home decor with each season (especially when springtime rolls around). I have been in love with the tropical-vibes in this year’s spring collections – in everything from clothing to home decor. I recently stopped in Forever 21 and was pleasantly surprised (and so excited) to spot these adorable palm and pineapple print throw pillows! This find was not only a score for my home, but also for my wallet. With changing out home decor so often, it’s a bonus when you can find trend and season-specific items at great prices! – Niki 

Each season I like to add a few fun and trendy looks to my closet as well as a few great basics. For me, good basics are an investment as I wear them season after season. I’m not a denim lover by nature, but these Hudson jeans from Evereve are my absolute new spring (and really any season) favorites. They’re the perfect combination of stretch and structure, and on top of that they’re unbelievably soft!  Icing on the cake? When you have them on it’s easy to forget you’re actually wearing denim as they’re as comfortable as a legging. I love pairing them with this cold-shoulder tee, also from Evereve. It”s a fresh and trendy spin on a classic in a fun punch of color. As a busy mom, I’m all about an effortlessly cute look that is easy to wear! Paired with sneakers or a fun sandal, this outfit is one of my spring go-to looks. – Alissa

Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a struggle, especially when all of our bodies are so different. I was so ecstatic to see that Gap has recently come out with their “sculpt jeans” that were made specifically to contour, support and keep their shape (and yours) all day long. As someone who has trouble finding jeans that are long enough for me, these also come in tall and petite. I am a big fan of these jeans because there really is a pair for everyone. They come in multiple different washes and are available in mid or high-rise. I must admit, they feel a little strange putting them on at first with the sculpting technology, but less than a minute into trying them on I did not want to take them off. – Maija

Spring tends to be a season when I like to switch out my handbags, which also gives me an excuse to find something new. Since I’m prone to splurging a bit on my purses during these seasons, I had to stop by Macy’s purse department to check out their new items. I was immediately drawn to this petite cross body by Michael Kors. It had everything I was looking for – simplicity, detail, and a unique design. I also quickly fell in love with the spring collection colors (which means I’ll probably be back for more…) – Niki

I am a sucker for a good dress. There is no easier outfit in my opinion, especially in the spring and summer months. This adorable option from Express combines a few of my favorites at the moment – off-the-shoulder and a tie-waist, and I absolutely love the baby blue and white stripes! (They’re vertical, too, so they’re super flattering!). The fabric is a combination of linen and cotton, making it light-weight and easy to wear. The tie-waist creates definition, and the off the shoulder smocked neckline adds a romantic note to an otherwise classic look. I love pairing this dress with an open-toe mule. (P.S. It’s currently 40% off!) – Alissa 

Now that Spring has arrived, it’s that time of year again where your legs come out of hibernation from winter. When the weather starts to warm up, I can’t help but wear dresses and skirts nearly every day, but with that comes the need for smooth legs… I have always been a huge fan of the Bath and Body Works Shea body creams, but this week I found my new favorite scent! “At The Beach” is going to be my go-to for spring and summer! This product smells like a heavenly mix of toasted coconut and a refreshing salt water breeze. I personally use this product after shaving and showering, and use it on my hands almost daily. Infused with shea, cocoa, and soothing aloe butter, I love how this body cream helps me feel silky smooth all day long. – Maija
