what is this feeling?

what is this feeling?

I'm having an odd feeling this spring. The feeling is that I don't really need any new clothes. Gasp. Two years ago I was developing this business and blog and felt some pressure to step up my game, last year I was starved for new things after pregnancy, but this year, I think I'm good. Dresses, check. Lightweight tops, check. Jeans that fit, check. Three pairs of shorts - probably three too many since I rarely wear them. Feels nice.

As usual, when the sun comes out, I add some color to my customary neutrals. But don't worry, only in my jewelry - I mean, I'm still me.

Nothing new to see here - Zara necklace purchased last spring (here on ebay), COS top seen here, Twiggy from James Jeans and Sam Edelman boots. Plus some spring wind.

My old favorite striped trench from Ann Taylor LOFT (here's one on ebay!), old Old Navy flared jeans (yes, they're coming back, but skinnies aren't going anywhere), Forever 21 top, Franco Sarto boots. The necklace is from this etsy shop, and it's wooden beads on a knit cord, so it's pretty childproof.

Sometimes, even when you're sticking to your list of needs, you still stumble across something that you can't pass up. For me, it was this Lizzie Fortunato necklace I spotted out of the corner of my eye at Byrd. I've been a fan of her designs since I blogged about them back in 2013, but wouldn't have been able to afford a piece unless it was on consignment.

Whenever I buy something new, I always want to show it off when I first wear it, and later will get more creative with remixing it. For this necklace, I went all black, and just changed it up a bit with a pair of flared black denim.

I'm looking forward to wearing more short sleeves this weekend as it warms up here in St. Louis!

What would you make an exception for if you found a great deal?
