{recap} Wardrobe Update - May

  Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,, 
This month I aimed to not buy anything outside my trip to Italy. I almost made it the whole way though. At the beginning of the month I bought a pair of earrings that my friend Jamie-Lee designed for Mejuri because they're super pretty and I don't really have any non-stud earrings.

I also got an amazing deal on boots at DSW. They were 80% off $79 and then a further 20% off making them $ could I resist?! But now they'll be sitting in my closet until next Fall. They reminded me of a pair of Gianvito Rossi boots (and pumps) which was a nice bonus!

In Italy I wanted to buy a designer bag or shoes but sticker shock got me and I "behaved" and spent about $300 (€290) on Gucci sunglasses. They're listed at $400 on the US site so I did good.

After Italy, disaster struck. I went to Target with a friend and bought a bodysuit, shirt dress and tee. THEN that same day I found out Coach Outlets had the Disney collaboration for sale. I wanted a bag when they originally released at Coach but they were a bit too pricey.  I bought a cute Mickey ear bag in tan (wanted red but they didn't have it.)

To make matters worse, the Net-a-Porter sale started last week. It's my favorite sale of the year and there's only been one time where I haven't bought something. The first day of the sale I spent all morning going through every page adding things to my wish list. I haven't gotten anything yet, but it's only a matter of time.

  1. Hi M! Love the new sunnies and OMG the Coach bag you HAD to get. It's surely gonna become a classic.

  2. The sunglasses are classic - such a good buy. And I love the floral dress. The earrings are super pretty too. Micky ears! Guess I know what you will be carrying next time you visit Disney.

  3. I have seen so much of that cute Disney collection around and I know it's at the Coach outlets here. I wanted some too but it was so expensive and there's the whole 6 month shopping ban thing. I just know by the end of June there won't be anything left at the Coach outlet which is a shame as there are so many cute pieces!

    I think you did really well with your spending this month actually. You already know I love your boots too! :)

    Hope you are having a great week! :)
