My New Lovelies

First, I want to thank everyone for their kind comments regarding Aron's grandmothers passing. We flew to New Jersey on Wednesday for Emma's funeral, and spent time with family and friends. Can I just say how amazing Aron's family is? They are such a tight knit and wonderful group of people. Even with the support of family, it was still a very rough week.

Though it feels strange to blog right now, I am easing back into it with a quick post on my recent purchases.

I fell in love with this sweater. It has a great pinup/rockabilly feel to it.  I'd been watching closely to see how low the sale price would go. $29 was low enough for me :)

Forever 21 Sweetheart Bird Print Dress

This lovely item is now out of stock. I haven't received this dress yet, but I hope it is a winner.

This lightweight sweater has such a French, gamine feel to it. It will be great for Spring.

I'm not much of  belt person, but I couldn't resist this one. Slap quaint little bow on just about anything, and I will buy it! The price is pretty amazing as well.

I'm not a big white tshirt fan, but I figure I can layer this one with a cardigan. I love the vintage Barbie design.

I like the fit of this dress, except it is about 4 inches too long. I will be getting it hemmed, and wearing the heck out of it this Spring.

As you can see, I have gone on a bit of an online shopping spree. This has forced me to look at my budget and curtail my spending a bit. I installed a budget app into my iPhone to keep track of my personal spending habits, business spending, and dining out budget. As far as personal spending, I will allow myself $150-200 per month to spend on myself. That includes not just clothing, but haircuts, pedicures, makeup, and even lunch out with friends. I think that is realistic and doable.

 I hope Tuesday is treating you right :)



  1. That sounds like a plan. I like all your cute finds.

  2. I love your picks- they are fresh and classic- perfect for punching up an old wardrobe. Not that your wardrobe is old, but mine is- I recently did some punching at the Goodwill near my mamacita's house- and yup, loads of navy stripes found their way into my closet.

  3. I am always a sucker for navy and white stripes.

  4. Great finds. I LOVE the belt and dress!

  5. Whoa-- that bow belt is just LOVELY! and I didn't even know Old Navy had those Barbie shirts!
