Last month I felt like I bought all the items, so I'm pleased I only added five items to my closet (as opposed to last month's eight). I think my favorite purchase this month were these gorgeous suede teal flats from J. Crew. I got them in my usual size 9, but I added a back of heel cushion since they initially wanted to slip a little bit. They haven't made it to the blog yet, but you can see them on Instagram here. Thanks to eBay, I got an amazing deal of a mislabeled pair of J. Crew navy pixie pants. The tag says they're sixes, but they're really a 16 and either way it meant big savings for me! (see them here).
I love my J. Crew Factory white with navy polka dot dress so much, I had to have this year's navy and white polka dot version. I actually ordered it in a size 20 (for extra length) and may end up taking in the sides, but as you can see in photos, it doesn't look too loose, though there's plenty of extra fabric.
Two more tops made it into my closet, this gray lace embroidered top that will be perfect in the upcoming summer months - plus I love the elbow length sleeves - and a blush split neck tunic for work (see it here).
After holding on to my thredUP bag from months, I finally sent it back in and got a few dollars for my clean out efforts. Though I didn't make a lot of money, I didn't want to mess with listing items on eBay or Poshmark. Plus it helped counter January's spending spree. :)
Looking forward to next month, I have this gorgeous white with cream fringe dot midi skirt on order as well as this mauve long cardigan (as a hopeful replacement to my well-worn blush cardigan). I'm also drooling over this navy crochet trim kimono, so it very well might make it's way home to me as well...
