The reason


This little pretty may or may not be the reason I've put myself on a sudden self-imposed shopping ban. I couldn't resist though! My Neiman Marcus sales associate has me on her email distribution list and she sent us pictures of all these cute little Chanel accessories. I figured this could round out my humble little collection? She's just too adorable. And worth the ban.





Sunnies: Tom Ford | Earrings: Express | Necklace: Express | Top: Anthropologie (option, option, option)   | Bracelets: Random bangles in my collection (option) | Wallet: Chanel (budget option, budget option) | Skirt: Express | Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors (option)

Yep, I loved that striped midi skirt so much, I decided to get it in the second color. (Pre-shopping ban, of course.) I do love this color, but there's something extra versatile about the black and white one. Not complaining though - I'm happy to have this figure flattering skirt in grey and black! I tucked a faux wrap shirt into this skirt, and it's amazing how this really could pass for a dress. And the layered necklace and studded heels give me the edginess I like.

  3. Okay I love this outfit! I just posted the blog where you are featured (http://www.thearnoldsblogalot.com/2014/05/spring-must-haves-trench-coat.html). The thing I said about you is that you ALWAYS accessorize so well. This is no exception. Love your new addition and the details on those shoes! I have a similar skirt and like how you styled it. Good inspiration.

  4. Again with the trickery! I thought this was a dress again until you reminded me it was a midi skirt. I knew you bought it but did not make the connection because this look says dress. That's a pretty nifty skill. Very pretty wallet, too. Now I understand the ban!! ha ha! Off to go check out Amy Ann's post on you. :)

    1. It's definitely an investment! And the prices only go up as the years pass…And they have such a great re-sale value!

    1. Every girl should probably own a Chanel at some point in life! That would be my motto if elected president :)

  11. Don't you love it (hate it) when your sales person has you on speed dial about deals and new products? Such a powerful grip.
    Looking awesome, as usual :)

    1. I'm so trying not to look at the sale. Though I admit to adding stuff to my cart and then using all my strength to close the window!!

  14. Love the wallet, it's definitely worth the ban! May is a terrible month for shopping, everywhere I look there are sales. I'll be on a self-imposed shopping ban right here with you (after I finish with these sales).

  15. I knew that was the Express midi skirt but with that wrap style, colorful-printed top looks awesome as a dress. The new Channel Clutch and Patent Leather Pumps are gorgeous together. =)

    I am glad I am all caught up. I never want to miss out on your amazing outfits. =)
