The other night I randomly decided to go shopping, I needed to find some outfits for a couple of upcoming parties/events I was going to. I was trying to avoid Nordstroms because I know that they have this adorable coral Kate Spade Bag that I have literally been having dreams about, but am not ready to drop $500 on…
So I took a trip to Marshalls instead- I was so excited with my finds! (Well most of them)
I guess us short girls have to stick to our rompers… 😉
So, back to my shopping trip… I was looking for color! I’ve been trying to buy more (only) colorful clothes lately. Look at how cute these two dresses that I snagged are!
I was so thrilled with my dress finds, and I was completely content… until I walked by this black DKNY purse. I just could not turn away (probably because it reminded me of my Kate Spade dream bag :(…)! Every time I walked by I found myself picking it up, trying it on, feeling the ridiculously smooth leather, then putting it back. But every time I left I’d immediately turn right back around to make sure nobody else had grabbed it. The more I thought about it, I figured it’d be the perfect purse for work, going out, or any special occasion…and truthfully I don’t have a small bag like that. I had to have it…
When I got home I discovered all of it’s functionalities! It appears as a traditional 2-strap handbag, but can be converted to a 1-strap shoulder or cross body bag. How convenient. My purchase was justified 🙂
What have you picked up lately? Anything fun or colorful?
I am completely guilty of having a pretty dull wardrobe- lots of grey and black! With this recent Spring/Summer weather we’ve been having I decided it was time to step it up! I told myself that from here on out, when shopping, I would ONLY buy colorful clothes. I put my maxxinista skills to work at Marshalls, TJ’s, some consignment spots, Forever 21, and H&M over the past few weeks.
Here are some of my recent, *colorful* purchases…
New shoes! 🙂
Lots of chunky new necklaces…
A new bag, belts and hair accessories…
I wore this new beautiful fuchsia dress with a beaded gold necklace to a recent work event.
I’ve even started to break out my spring polishes!
I’m currently wearing this pastel blue color, I’m loving it!
How does your wardrobe and shopping habits change when the weather warms up?
I must admit, I am so grateful for the beautiful New England weather that we’ve had this Winter, I’m not as seasonly depressed as I usually am! However, today we are having a mini snow storm, and I must admit- I am slightly excited about it (not to mention, I got to head home from work a bit early! Who doesn’t LOVE that?!)
I wanted to share my work OOTD (outfit of the day) because I felt that it was totally appropriate with today’s forecast.
I wore this top (Marshalls $15) with my blue skinny jeans (Marshalls $12) for a night out a few weeks ago, and was dying to repeat.
I had on my favorite black suede pumps (which I probably wear more often then I should- but they just go with everything!)
Simple diamond studs, and a couple of my Tiffany & Co. bracelets…
Nothing too crazy, but I was still feeling fresh and fun today! A little color definitely goes a long way.
