Recent Purchases

Although I didn't intentionally set out to buy items in the same color family, when I took a look at my February purchases, it was apparent that my subconscious was having a momentary obsession with these oceanic shades.  And, I must admit, blues & greens are always among my favorites for spring/summer - because they feel so fresh & look good on virtually every skin-tone. 

I'm seriously stalking this mint sequin skirt & just waiting for a good sale to snatch it up.  In addition to these items below, I also bought the coral satchel & wool coat from this outfit, the jacket & clutch seen here + this messenger bag & lilac blazer (note: almost all of these pieces were purchased using the $500 gift card I won from RetailMeNot).

1) J. Crew Necklace - $71.99  (bought during 40% off sale)// 2) Forever 21 Pumps - $29.80 
3) Forever 21 Blouse - $19.80 // 4) Target Earrings - $12.99

oh dear and now I found a new obsession:

like seriously, I am in love with this dress! The thing is I don't do sleeveless and I feel like something underneath would ruin this gorgeous look....Although if I do a silky nude tee it shouldn't look too bad, right? NO I CANNOT BUY ANYTHING DONT LET MEEE! :)

Great buys! I love the earrings and pumps. I wish someone would put a bug into Forever 21's ear to sell Size 11 shoes.

Kim said...

I love the F21 top and am thinking about ordering it BUT...is it blue like the suede shoes? I'm thinking it would look great with the festival blue color from JCrew but don't want to deal with the non-return nonsense from F21. Help!!

Kimberly said...

Hi Kim,

Not it's not as bright of a blue as the suede shoes. There is navy and a lighter blue + mint mixed in, so I think it would work! :)


Rhea said...

Great picks! Love your shirt and cuff. :)
