I bought these patchwork boots for a STEAL ($12) back in May and was so excited to finally wear them. I thought since they had multiple colors they'd be easy to style but when I went to pair them with pieces I found myself stumped for something stylish. I could have just worn them with a basic sweater, but for their first outing I wanted something more fun. In the end I went with my Zara crop top to bring out all the colors of the boots and finished it off with my soft purple cape.

Cashmere Cape: b chyll - similar (Roundabout), Crop Top: Zara (similar), Jeans: J Brand 'Maria' High Rise in Supreme (Gilt Groupe), Patchwork Boots: Impo 'Omega' (DSW), Bag: Emm Kuo 'Calle Bahia' (Roundabout Resale), Sunglasses: Chanel

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.
