Spring Overload

Warning: Do not adjust your monitor. I am not wearing black. I repeat, I am not wearing black! 

I know, I was kind of shocked as well. 


It was windy out! I actually brushed my hair for once. 


Blazer: Ann Taylor (Similar) // Dress: J.Crew (Similar) // Shoes: Goodwill ($6 haaaaay!) // Belt: J. Crew // Purse: Kate Spade (on sale!) // Shades: Ray Ban // Accessories: Hello Fab, vintage 


Four things: 

1. Holy color overload! Seriously, even the hubs looked at me twice when I came down the stairs in this outfit. Where is the black? That blazer is navy blue, thank you very much. Don't worry, I'll probably wear a black turtleneck tomorrow just to get my flow back to center. 

2. I have been obsessed with belting blazers since I saw The Proposal. You can keep Ryan Reynolds to yourself and I will hoard Sandy B's wardrobe from that movie until the day I die. And her hair because it was amazing.

3. I have no idea what color those shoes are or the brand. I got them for $6 at Goodwill. In some lights they look navy and in others they look black.  Kind of like my blazer and I think that means they are officially best buds. 

4. I officially have a sad face because I'm running low on my absolute favorite nail polish color of all time. Yes #FirstWorldProblems. The color is marathin by Essie and it was a Fall 2012 color.  I'm not kidding if you see it in a store, buy the remaining stock and I'll send you money if you ship it to me. No really, I'm not kidding.

    1. Thanks so much! It's actually a favorite dress from J.Crew that I threw a blazer over. That's how I maximize my usage of all my strapless dresses. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks Alissa! I love mint, but the minute I see it I want ice cream so I usually keep the mint to a minimum. Perhaps if I was better at self-control I could wear it more often!

    1. Thanks Nancy! Yeah, I'm going to start seeing if I can find more of it at TJ Maxx. In the future I'll know never to fall in love with a seasonal color.
