Since I had been on a shopping hiatus for the month of May and hadn’t really pulled a new shopping post together in the months before that, I thought I would take the time to show you the recent addition I have made to my closet and my technology love. It isn’t a whole lot, but it is something.

I had been hoping that my Stitch Fix would be my shopping for the month, but that was a pretty big bust (read about it HERE). Instead I found myself upgrading my iPhone 4S to the 5S in gold thanks to some prodding from friends. And of course with that kind of upgrade a new case needed to happen (although I may have bought the case before the phone and have 4 other cases at home that I have had for a month, but SHHH!). I was able to pick up the fun Vera Bradly case at the outlets so it was a fabulous price. Also on that trip I was able to pick up the adorable anchor belt which is 100% similar to the one in the picture. Found it at the Gap and it was less than marked so I scooped that up.

The dresses are more recent additions. I love the stripped one at the Loft when they were having a massive sale on line. It is long so it will need to be hemmed and it may be a tab big in the waist, but it was final sale so I will get the alterations done.  The other dress I picked up just last Tuesday at J Crew. It was normally $110 (insane right??!!) and it was on super sale so I got it for less than half off. And before I now need a new external charger for my phone, I got the fun printed one while I was there for under $15.00.

Finally the shoes. Oh how I love all my new shoes. The wedges I bought while I was no shopping in May. But in my defense I had a coupon and a gift card so it was no money out of my pocket. I’m only slightly obsessed with them and have worn them HERE. The ankle wrap ones are a J Crew Factory find. I had purchased them in red a while back and what 100% certain about them. But I wore them HERE for the first time and I was hooked. I love how they look with pants. I decided to see how much they were on line and was able to get them on super sale with another coupon on had so they ending up breaking the bank at a whopping $3.93! SOLD. And last but not least are the newest addition to my Sperry family. I blame Jessica at Bows & Sequins for this purchase and feeding my addiction to all things Sperry.

What have you recently added to your closet?

Jack Rogers – Lauren Sandal
I recently bought my first ever pair of Jack Rogers when an unbelievable deal came about. They are super cute and I can’t wait for the weather to be warm enough for me to wear them. And as you can tell I’m already lusting over a new pair. Totally in love with the Lauren Sandal and I NEED.

The Book Addict’s Guide
I recently became acquainted with Britney of The Book Addict’s Guide on Twitter when I ran my Spring Book Exchange. Since then I found her blog and I’m in love with it. It is really well done and all kinds of awesome. You should check it out.

Loft – Pleated V-Neck Dress
I so should have bought this when it was 50% off a few weeks back as I can get it out of my head and I’m no buy for May. Sigh. I’ll just have to hope for June.

Jeweled Sweatshirts

Jeweled Sweatshirts
If you are a shopping nut like me you may have noticed one thing, jeweled and comfortable are in. Over the past few months embellished sweatshirts have showed up in a variety of stores with a variety of styles and prices for all budgets. Now wearing a sweatshirt is okay for that trip to the supermarket or for a casual work environment. And I have to say, I’m not hating it. The only thing that is tough is deciding which one to buy with so many options out there. Which one would you buy? Are you down with this current trend?

May Wish List

May Wish List

I did it! I survived Spring Into Your Closet and now I’m free to shop, shop, shop! Okay, I’m not going to go over board…really, I’m not. But I am going to buy a few key pieces(hopefully anyway!) that I have noticed I want/are missing in my wardrobe. Some you will see on my May wish list, others are just in my head for the time being. But I do know for certain that 4 things are a must: polka dot Havianas, Old Navy printed tub dress, a pair of boyfriend jeans, and lace shorts. Everything else will just be gravy!

What’s on your May shopping wish list?

Mix-Up

Mix-Up

For this post I started with one item, the JCrew heart sweater, and created an outfit. Using that sweater I created a different outfit. From that look I took a pair of boyfriend jeans and created a 3 look which I then took the Herringbone printed vest and created my 4th and final outfit. It’s amazing how one piece can inspire 4 looks.

What would you have done?
