pre-spring purchases

It may still be snowing and freezing rain outside, but since it's now March, I feel like it's safe to start thinking about spring (keep in mind I bought these in January & February, so I've been tired of winter for a while). So here are a couple "pre-spring" purchases I've made lately.

1. Flashbulb Fancy Necklace / ModCloth / $24.99
Not necessarily spring-centric, but it's shiny and will go well with spring dresses.

2. Canvas Field Jacket / Old Navy / $44.94
I saw Kendi wearing this & instantly fell in love. I've never really had a jacket like this, so I figured it was worth it—plus I grabbed it when they were having a sale & I had a $10 reward to use.

3. Newspaper Musings Bootie / ModCloth / $40
I had a ModCloth store credit & these caught my eye while browsing the sale section. They're super cute, comfortable & I know I'll get a lot of wear out of them.

I saw this bag online in probably mid January and when I found myself repeatedly thinking about it, I knew I had to buy it. This was my treat for finishing a clean eating challenge I did in January, and I had a $10 certificate that I used for it. It's the perfect blush color that goes with everything.

Have you made any purchases in the anticipation of spring?

triple cats.

I didn't even mean to wear so many cat things on this day, but it happened.

What I'm wearing:
Sweater: Old Navy
Dress: swap from Hannah
Belt: Francesca's
Tights: Target
Boots: Target
Scarf: gift
Bag: DSW
Necklace: made by me

These are from a rare day earlier in February when it wasn't 30 degrees or lower outside, which was quite nice. I liked pairing the neutrals of the dress and the bag with the bright tights (and of course some black & dark grey for contrast). I should do that more often.

floral / black / burgundy

Long time no blog post! Life has been crazy lately with my wedding being two months away! Aaah! Anyways, time for an outfit!

What I'm wearing:
Shirt: Old Navy
Dress: Old Navy
Leggings: Old Navy
Boots: Etienne Agnier
Necklaces: Make Pie Not War, gift from Hannah

I really did not mean to make this whole outfit Old Navy, but it happens. I wore this for casual Friday a week or two ago and it was super comfortable. And sometimes that's all you need for a friday.

sheer + gray.

You guys know I'm all about collared blouses under dresses, and this time I decided to go for a different kind of top.

What I'm wearing:
Shirt: Forever 21, old
Dress: Old Navy
Tights: Target
Blazer: Target
Flats: Old Navy
Necklace: vintage pin made into a necklace
Belt: eBay

I've had this sheer blouse for years now and it's held up surprisingly well. I can't believe this is the first time I've thought of putting it under a dress—I'm definitely going to have to try it with some other dresses as well.

I really liked how this outfit turned out. It had been way too long since I had worn this dress, and these dreary winter days need some floral.
