I’m an Amazon Shopping Editor, and These Are the 10 Things I’m Buying for Spring
This story originally appeared on InStyle.com.
Spring is officially six days away, and I couldn't be any more excited. After a long winter of being shut in more than ever before, the light at the end of the tunnel is here. For me, the start of spring always means it's time to add a few new things to my shopping cart—partly because I'm putting away all my winter go-tos, and partly because no matter what kind of year you've had, spring is the season of new beginnings.

Crocs Slip-on Shoes
I discovered my love for Crocs as a direct result of working from home. Even though I considered them an "ugly" shoe in the before-times, I decided I needed a comfy inside-shoe that wasn't a pair of slippers. Since so many people rave about how supportive Crocs are, I decided to give them a shot, especially since they actually come in a lot of cute colors. For the winter, I've been living in this fuzzy-lined lavender pair, but they can get pretty warm, so I'm getting the non-lined version for the spring.
I've decided to go with white since it feels super springy, plus I don't plan on wearing them out, which means they won't get dirty.

Bedsure Satin Pillowcase
I've recently switched to mostly sleeping on silk or satin pillowcases. This is mostly because they feel good—they're nice and cooling, which is great as the weather warms up. As an added bonus, they also have beauty benefits, like being moisture-wicking and eliminating hair frizz. Not to mention, a silk pillowcase has been Kelly Ripa's anti-aging secret for the past six years, so clearly something's working.
While I have a small collection of Slip's popular silk pillowcases, I'm intrigued to try Amazon's best-selling Bedsure's satin pillowcases. They've got nearly 103,000 five-star ratings (yes, seriously), come in tons of colors and several different sizes. The best part is they're super affordable—you can get two on sale for just $10.

Rhapsody Studio Vase
Okay, seriously, how cute is this vase? I came across Rhapsody Studio's vases when they were listed as a trending spring decor item on Amazon, and fell in love immediately. I'm someone that tries to buy flowers as often as I can, especially in the spring, and I think this half-round vase will look so cute paired with a bouquet of tulips. There are a few different shapes and colors available, and I have a feeling I'll be collecting them all eventually.

Oalka High-Waisted Joggers
I already own a pair of these joggers, and I love them so much I'm purchasing another. They're super comfy, lightweight, and flattering, which makes them perfect to throw on and go when I need to run an errand or just want to take a walk. Lots of shoppers compare them to Lululemon and describe them as "silky" and "luxurious," which I can attest to. They come in so many nice colors that I'm honestly having trouble deciding if I want to go with black again, or something like lavender mist or ink blue.

L'Occitane Almond Shampoo
I'm obsessed with L'Occitane's entire almond collection, so I knew I had to have the brand's new shampoo featuring the delicious scent when I saw it. If you've never smelled L'Occitane's almond products, the scent is super pleasant, delicate, and just right for spring. While I swear by the Honeydew Biotin Shampoo for thick and shiny locks, I like to supplement with options that leave my hair smelling really good and feeling super soft, making the Almond Shampoo the perfect bottle to add to my shower.

Orimina Wall Hanging Glass Planters
I'm on a redecorating binge this spring, and I love the look of these wall-mounted glass planters. I've been trying to figure out what to put above my bed for a while now, and I think I've finally found my answer. I'm planning on filling them up with some large air plants, but I may also look into pothos trimmings since they hang nicely and are easy to care for.

Baggu Canvas Duck Bag
I've had my eye on this Baggu tote bag forever, so I'm finally taking the plunge. I've been relying on my leather Madewell tote every time I leave the house, but I think it's time for her to take a break. The Baggu Duck Bag is a sturdy canvas tote made out of 65 percent recycled cotton. I like that it's roomy and has two types of straps, and comes in a variety of pretty colors. I'm eyeing the pear, but the poppy is a fun spring hue, too.

BIC Soliel Bella Disposable Razor
Since I'll be shaving a lot more as the weather warms up, I'm planning to stock up on my favorite razors ever: the BIC Soleil Bella Razors. I've tested a handful of razors from a variety of brands, but I always find myself returning to the BIC razors for that close and non-irritating shave. I love that they're simple — they have four blades with a thin lubricating strip and guard bar, which is all I need. Plus, I can get a pack of 10 on Amazon, which totally beats getting a smaller pack for almost the same price at my local pharmacy.

Eikei Washed Cotton Duvet Cover Set
This duvet set is one of Amazon's most-loved home products right now, and I can see why. The Eikei duvet cover comes in a lot of neutral and soothing colors like sand, light green, and mauve, which can give any bedroom a spring refresh. It's made out of 100 percent cotton and has a modern "lived in" look that looks casual and cozy. It has a ton of good reviews, and I'm excited to have it elevate the look of my bedroom.

Acrylic Storage Box
And last but certainly not least, I am finally upgrading my tissue and storage game by getting this acrylic tissue holder that comes with a drawer. I'm always using more tissues when spring rolls around (thanks seasonal allergies), but find tissue boxes bulky and unappealing. This will help them look sleek on my nightstand, while also helping me organize all the knicknacks I always have laying around like hair ties and earrings.
