Recent Purchases


This is my second post of purchases for the month of January...I may have gone a little crazy during those great after holiday sales, so I'm anticipating shopping much less in February.  But, I was thrilled to find two basic pieces in my new favorite spring hue (lilac) and a few items I've been wanting for a while ~ the perfect lace pencil skirt (which I plan on wearing like this), a white handbag (love the Prada-esque shape) and statement earrings (much less than this J. Crew version I was stalking).



1) J. Crew Blythe Blouse - $29.99 (40% off with code GET40)
2) Simply Vera Vera Wang Earrings - $11.55 (30% off coupon)
3) ELLE Lace Skirt - $21.56 (30% off coupon)
4) J. Crew Tippi Sweater - $23.99 (40% off with code GET40)

Digging those Simply Vera Earrings, they are a great alternative to a more expensive version I am lusting after at J.Crew.

Happy weekend!!!

I too am totally loving that inspiration photo. Not only is the skirt great, but the belt is to die for, and the bracelets are lovely. Can't wait to see how you put it together!

I just got a similar lace skirt from Banana (also on major sale). I'd be curious to see some ways to style it for a "business casual" office environment if you don't mind!

Jane said...

I love how the forever21 item is the most expensive. It's usually quite the opposite!

Best,
Jane

Kayla Gilbert said...

PERFECT pieces! I swear you are a girl after my own heart!

Great finds! That pencil skirt is gorgeous. And I know what you mean--the 40% off sale at J. Crew after Christmas almost killed me.

I have a huge crush on the lace skirt in this post. Such a versatile item for your wardrobe, and a little D&G at that :-)

Nicole said...

Just curious what size did you get in the Blythe shirt and was it regular petie or tall

Kimberly said...

Hi Nicole,

I actually have two of the Blythe shirts (in different colors) - one of them is the regular size 4 and one is a tall size 2...the only difference is the tall is longer in length & the sleeves are longer. Just for reference, I am 5'8". Hope that helps!!
