Yes, I know I have a problem. Too many polka dots but I absolutely could not pass up these Kate Spade shoes. Black and white dots plus bright pink accents – who could resist? Working on my casual wardrobe is one of my goals for this year and these are a great place to start.
I spotted this House of Harlow necklace at Nordstrom quite a while back. Its $75 price tag scared me off but I never forgot its uniqueness. When I spotted it on Shopbop (other colors here and here) I knew I couldn’t pass it up a second time.
I was the lucky winner of a Brittany Fuson print from The Fashionable Wife. It was so hard to pick just one! After narrowing it down to my top three my final selection was Matching Stripes. Can’t wait to add this to my gallery wall.
I got a few new items from Shopbop! I can’t remember the last time I owned corduroy pants (see below for link) but the familiar *swish, swish* when you walk reminded me of my childhood. I wore this to join some friends for happy hour. Casual, trendy, comfortable and a small dose of orange. Perfection.
Do you ever have one of those days when logically you know how good you have it but in your heart you still yearn for more? That is how I’m feeling today. I know it is in part due to a lack of clear focus. I know I can fix it but just once, I’d like a fairy godmother to *poof* in and take care of everything for me. Damn you Disney for putting that into my head.
Can a pale person pull off all winter white? Sure, why not? I’ve seen several monochromatic looks that I’ve wanted to try but none more than the all white look. So I did it. Sorry to repeat the Banana Republic polka dot cardigan again this week but it was required for the look. I added a red lip for a little jolt of color (and a Valentine’s Day nod) and kept the accessories minimal.
I bought this cardigan a little while ago because it was on super sale at Francesca’s. The shear stripes and bias cut take it from boring to spectacular. It adds a little bit warmth but mostly just style. I hope you’re off to a great week!
I wish I would’ve had some fun tights to go with this outfit but I haven’t figured out if I am a funky tights person or not. I envision funky tight people as either fashion runway model types heading to some creative job in NY or Zooey Deschanel. Or maybe Rhianna. None of which describe me. Where do you land on the tights wearing spectrum?
As far as the rest of the outfit, I played it safe with the cream cardigan so the cobalt shirt and skirt could be the stars.
This is my third pair of exact stretch skinny pants from The Limited (also in navy here and black here). I’m not usually one of those people who buys multiple colors of one item but the cut and fit of this particular pant was too perfect to pass up. They will be wearable summer and winter (well at least here in So Cal) making them a closet staple.
I’m a little giddy thanks to Shopbop.com. I was finally able to get my first pair of True Religion jeans. The cowgirl in me has always loved the horseshoe stitching on the back pockets but the price tag has been barrier. But here they are and the fit is fantastic and I’ve been looking to add a pair of light wash jeans back to my wardrobe (hello 80s and 90s, I remember you!).
To round out the outfit, I added my new garnet red sweater and gray heels (sadly, I’ve decided to part with these shoes). Do you have a certain brand on your wardrobe bucket list?
