I have been looking for a pair of black sandals and these Hadley sandals at Max Studio caught my eye. They are a new twist on the thong sandal that everyone is sporting right now. I really like the knots and the multiple stranded straps. And this may seem silly, but I want black sandals that are completely black. I have found a lot of pairs where the straps are black, but the sole isn't. These are ideal for me.

I really dig banded tops; I think they are ultra flattering. And this feather print blouse at Arden B has great sleeves and a colorful print. What more could a girl ask for? For me its really important to buy pieces that can I can use for work and play. Who has the time or money to shop for completely separate wardrobes? And this blouse can do both for me. Grab it for $68
I pulled out my old jean jacket recently and there was something just not right about the fit anymore. It wasn't tailored enough and was a little too roomy through the torso. However, this jacket at Urban Outfitters is perfectly tailored and reasonably priced at $68. The color is perfect too, not too dark and not too light (jeesh, I sound like goldilocks).

This Velvet Marci cotton dress at Pink Mascara is adorable. I really like the crisscrossing around the bust. Speaking of bust, it has a built-in bra, which is a bonus. Add a cardigan or blazer and this puppy could function for work and play.

If you are one of those lucky folks heading off for a carribean vacation (if you were returning home yesterday and I saw you in the airport, I was silently grumbling that I wished I was you) you my friend might need a cute dress for the tropics. One say by BCBG in a cute fan print, like this matte jersey dress, which should travel well.
I immediately thought that this Cynthia Steffe dress would flatter a variety of figures (so long as you aren't busty). Its linen, so that's perfect for spring and summer and color is phenomenal and I can't get over the ruffling detail, so freaking cute! It might not be a budget-friendly option for everyone at $350, but if you have a few events that will call for a chic and flattering sundress this summer, you might get some mileage out of it.
This will be my one "fantasy" posting for the week, promise. I am guessing that you can't afford this anymore than I can or you wouldn't be reading this blog. But this Burbery Double Handle Satchel is gorgeous and if I could afford to drop grand on a bag, I am pretty sure it would be this one. Outside of the double handle and beautiful white leather, I adore the little inverted pleat. Anyhow, go ahead and dream about it with me at Nordstrom.
This dress is a really inexpensive way to be "springlike" without going the floral route. This cotton buttefly dress, which comes in olive (pictured), black, or sky, is only $40 and you could wear it for fun and for running errands (not that errands can't be totally fun).
Sorry folks, but I have been traveling for a few days and consistently posting stuff was a little tricky. But I am back and will try to make it up to you over the next few days because I am traveling again this weekend, this time for fun. Anyhow, check out this cute little cropped jacket at La Redoute for only $29.99. Perfect topper for the springtime, since the weather is still not cooperating with me.
