{recap} Wardrobe Update - February

  Thursday, February 28, 2019 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
I almost made it through the month without buying any clothes. But then Roundabout sent an email yesterday morning about their winter blowout. 80% off clothes and shoes!! AHH! So I went hoping I wouldn't find anything and I walked out with 3 jackets...whoops!

One is a white blazer which normally isn't my style, because I'm afraid of getting white dirty, but I was drawn to it so now I have to be brave and wear white! Next up is a Sandro Paris burgundy blazer. I've been wanting something from Sandro for quite a few years but could never pull the trigger on anything because they're so pricey. Last is a purple Rag & Bone wool jacket with leather details. I liked it because it's like a blazer but since it's knit that makes it a little more casual.

I'm hoping to get back on track with my no shopping next month, but we'll see! You know I can never pass up an amazing deal if I see one. And I have a $15 credit for The RealReal expiring....

Colors are off a bit in these photos but I took them last night so the lighting wasn't the best. The perils of buying something the day before my wardrobe update is posted!

  2. They are all beautiful blazers, especially that burgundy one! And you got such a good deal with all three under $90. I would have bought them too! :)

    Hope that your week is going well so far and you have a nice weekend planned :)

  5. So hard to resist a good blazer! And I love that you are being brave and wearing the white. $15 to the real real is kind of cruel, because you know you will end up spending more!

  6. I would have fallen for that white Massimo Dutti blazer too. Gorgeous.
