Feeling Knotty...

For some reason, I always seem to go on shopping binges in the Spring. Maybe it's because of the change in weather or the extra birthday money I get - but my closet always gets a lot more crowded during the sunny spring months!

This month two of my FAVORITE purchases (so far) are my pink scalloped shorts from H&M (not available online but these lace ones from Free People are pretty damn cute!) and my sparkly, sequin-y (have I mentioned I make up my own words sometimes?) anchor tank from J Crew.

So what do you do when you have two favorite pieces that would not ordinarily go together? You put them together of course! Throw in some fun nautical accessories such a this adorable rope bracelet from Target and this super cute wicker and white clutch from Kate Spade (the lining in this bag is fabulous, by the way).


Sparkles, Scallops and Sky High Wedges


Oh and the shoes...Yes, I will admit these are pretty crazy. But I loved the neutral lace and the height so I had to try them. I was a little scared when the Nordstrom box arrived in the mail and I tried them on for the first time. I was shocked but pleased to find out that these shoes are actually pretty comfortable and easy to walk in. And they are definitely a conversation piece - if you buy them just beware that people WILL stop you on the street to ask you how you are walking in them. But if you are used to a high platform and don't constantly rest on your heels (I do when I am sitting which is safe while wearing these), you should be fine in these babies! Personal tip: due to the nature of the heel - it is best to wear these with cropped pants, shorts or skirts; otherwise you look like you have baby feet which is weird.

Today's convo: How have you paired your two favorite items from this Spring's purchases? Did you buy them together or separate?
