Chic geek and buying lately




Sunnies: Tom Ford (77% off!) | Scarf: The Glittered Owl | Sweater: BP (40% off) | Gloves: Kate Spade (40% off) | Dress (worn as a tunic): Forever 21 (option) | Leggings: Zella | Booties: Vince Camuto (option, option

Remember yesterday when I was saying how ridiculous I felt searching for winter outfit inspiration? It's March! We should be talking about all things spring! Well, imagine how ridiculous I feel right now as I oooh and ahhh over my new boucle cardi and tech gloves. With the winter storm in effect this week, I was actually excited to whip both of these babies out. It's just such a weird shopping time right now. I snagged these because they were both 40% off, but otherwise, I'm not really in the mood to buy anything wintery anymore. Yet, I'm not ready to spend money on spring stuff that will just sit in my closet for who knows how long. 

OK. I'm lying. I may or may not have accidentally bought two pairs of shoes the other day while I was on the plane flying back from a work trip.

What's funny is I was originally on the search for the Sam Edelman Becker slip on sneakers in leopard. But, you guys see how I dress - I can't say I really wear sneakers much, but I just can't stop thinking about those damn shoes! I'm going to stalk them until they go on major sale. But as I was saying-- my intention was to look for those shoes. But then the leopard sandal popped up in my search results, and as hard as it is to believe, I don't have any leopard sandals. And the price was amazing! There may or may not have been a domino effect because Gina, Kelly, Joan, Renata, Di, and Skye now have these sandals, too. Whoops.

The oxfords though, you can blame Jenna for those. I put them on my stalk list, too, (aka Pinterest) and she tipped me off that they were under $45 on 6pm.com. Why on earth would I need gold oxfords? I dunno. But look how she rocks them!!


See, aren't new, non-winter shoes more fun to talk about than gloves and a chunky cardi? Aww, I'm sorry, Cardi and Gloves. I still love you. It's not you, it's me. 

Yes, I just talked to my clothes. 
And that's why they call me a chic geek.

  5. Aw, you look so pretty in those snow pictures! I still love that scarf...maybe it's not too late. And I love seeing the list of people who were hit by the domino effect of the leopard sandals. I hope you can gently push them to wear them on Monday....that would be AWESOME. I feel like you already have metallic oxfords that you wore with your Camo Portofino and moustache? No? Maybe they were not metallic...must refresh memory.... Gina

    1. You are close! They are taupe perforated oxfords with silver metallic cap toes! They were supposed to ease my craving for full on metallic oxfords but apparently they did not! At least I got gold this time!!

  10. You look adorable and your hair looks amazing btw! I have promised myself that I wouldn't buy anything else for winter and so far i'm doing well even though I am slowly hoarding away spring clothes. Hopefully we will see some better weather soon because I am just about fed up with dressing for the cold!
