Outfit Details

no exciting finds from my shopping trip unfortunately - i decided i would rather enjoy the beautiful weather with friends and family than be stuck in fitting rooms all day! i did sneak in a quick trip to Century21, but everything i wanted was either too big or too expensive.

however, i did pack up my spring wardrobe which was in storage at my parents' place and found a few items i had purchased during end of season sales last year that i never got the chance to wear, so it certainly feels like i did a lot of shopping! i also slowed down my posts during spring/summer last year (warm weather + baseball season = less time in front of the computer and more time outside and/or yelling at the TV (or radio, now that i don't have access to the YES network here in philly...)) so you didn't get to see the bulk of my spring/summer wardrobe. there will be a lot of new things to show you guys. as always, thanks for sticking around!


  1. That is an incredible jacket! CN is another very under-rated label. That Fendi bag is so phenomenal. I like how you pair grey with nude.

    Whenever I tell myself I going to do a big shopping trip, I hardly find anything for myself. But getting all your stored clothes is like shopping in itself!

  2. Absolutely love the leggings and the nail boots. I'd especially love some nail boots for myself but I don't think I could handle the thinness of the heel.

    Glad to hear you will be posting more pictures of your spring/summer wardrobe! It's gotten hot here very suddenly and I find myself at a loss with regards to how to manage dressing well when it gets hot out. Looking forward to your pictures.

  3. Do you only buy things online that you've tried on before? I don't have a lot of luck with it because the fit always seems off or the color or something.

  4. You look amazing as usual! That bag is just sooo pretty!!! I'm glad you spent quality time with your loved ones!

  5. yeeeesss!!! i've been waiting for the debut of those shoes. that makes me sounds stalker-ish. nix that- i just enjoy reading your blog and am excited for you that you finally got to wear them without the detriment of snow/rain :-) and family time is better than shopping time any day.

  6. I think that jacket is just perfect. I really like how you styled the entire outfit from start to finish. I understand not wanting to be in fitting rooms all day when it is so beautiful out.

  7. I have to say, wasn't too crazy about those heels when I just saw the picture of them. But that outfit with them rocks!

  8. excellent combination.
    can't wait to see your warm-weather collection, lol.

  9. love this outfit! the bag is great and the colours go so well together. love the heels too!


  10. Nice silhouette. I love the Costume National tuxedo jacket. That's too bad about no more YES. The worst is when Nets games take priority (like today) and you have to wait until 11 for the encore.
