I could use some input to help me focus some decisions.

I've been thinking about spring and summer and where my style is heading. It's been a while since I last posted a WIW, so, in case you don't know me, my style aspires to be sophisticated tomboy -- and is heavily JCrew and Ines inspired.

Like Angie, I am interested in upping the feminine ante in my style this spring and summer. (Unlike Angie, however, I am not ditching the denim.) I am not ditching my menswear-inspired clothing (BF jeans, traditional
blazers, loafers, tuxedo shirt) -- but want to integrate more of the girl
into the boy.

Here is how I want to achieve this goal (I have noted steps already taken over the past several months):

More feminine footwear -- I have already purchased two pairs of pointy-toe flats (Feb) and have ditched my slip-on sneakers
More white -- I have already purchased white slim midrise boyfriends (Jan) and a white scuba tee with a slight peplum (Feb)
More feminine denim cuts -- I have already purchased 1 pair of faded flared jeans (Sept) and 1 pair of dark blue bootcuts (thrifted, Jan)
More feminine outerwear / toppers -- I recently purchased a short trench (thrifted)

Several of the items I recently collected are below. Some of these are particularly costly, to me (like the colored block-heel sandals and the high-waisted cropped jeans, both of which I love) -- these would have to go on sale before I would even consider them.

From your perspective, which item or items seem like a good purchase, given the direction I am heading in, and the fact that my shopping will be limited for spring and summer?

PS Here is a picture of Leandra Medrine of the Man Repeller. I know these jeans are not going to appeal to everyone, but I love this look. Kind of 70s-inspired girly tomboy. Note the button-down shirt, the flares, the heeled sandals, the little box purse. I LOVE THIS.
