When my BF saw this outfit he exclaimed, "OMG you look so professional". That wasn't necessarily my intention, but whatever floats your boat. I purchased this green shirt over the summer at J. Crew, I never knew what to wear it with so I tried to experiment a little here... I'm not sure how crazy I am about it but I absolutely love the color so I'll give it another go. And yes, I own a second pair of leopard shoes (I know I have a leopard addiction disease). 


 This necklace I bought after a quick run through Topshop. I love the way the necklace lays, it's such a beautiful design. 

 Club Monaco blazer, J. Crew green blouse, Henry Lehr turtle neck, J Brand jeans, Steve Madden shoes 



I bought this scarf on that same Topshop excursion mentioned above. I had been dying for a knit scarf, and although I would have preferred one that was a little more chunky, this will definitely do.

Topshop scarf, Jet by John Eshaya cardigan, J. Crew belt, Patterson J. Kincaid blouse, J Brand jeggins, Target shoes and J. Crew bag 

Another outfit from the previous week. The loafers I purchased at Target for an unbelievable price. If I can find someone who studs things in the city, I would definitely get them studded... I'll have to investigate that more. Does anyone know of anyone or any place to get studding done? 
 

I purchased these two Lauren Conrad necklaces on Kohls.com. I had really wanted some subtle/ delicate necklaces and thought these were perfect. The elephant necklace is very long while the owl necklace is more of a choker. They both came on these hideous chains (sorry LC) so I went over the weekend to a wonderful store in Brooklyn that was able to put brand new chains on them. I also added the little orange bead to the elephant necklace. The store, Brooklyn Charm, allows you to pick out your own beads/ chains and they'll make the necklace for you right on the spot. I really think these brand new chains make a huge difference (I wish I had taken before and after pictures... oh well). I was also able to customize the lengths, I made the elephant necklace a little longer and the owl necklace a little shorter. All in all, it was a great success! They were also able to fix another necklace of mine that had broken and put a new chain on my sparrow necklace. By the way, this was all purchased for an incredible price.


Yay, I've finally been able to post all my new purchases from last week. I'm very excited about a lot of them, specifically my Kohls necklaces which I was able to personalize a bit. 

If you guys are liking my outfits please hype me on lookbook! You can find the link above, underneath my individual portrait.

And now I must bid you adieu.
