Currently Craving...Spring

Happy Friday! 

Trench Cape /  Bag  /  Striped Top  /  Zip Pencil Skirt  /   Pumps  /  Scarf 

I'm so ready for Spring! Who is with me? 

Right now I'm craving some classic and timeless pieces, like this gorgeous cape, but also color. Because Spring is not truly Spring without some color. 

Wishing you all a fantastic weekend!

burgundy + gray...and bed search chat

Sweater: old - almost exact style  //  Button down: old - similar herehere // Skirt - on sale (got mine in Tall) // Shoes: c/o Sole Society, also similar here and here // Bag: RM old  - love this one // Watch // Bracelet old - love this option

Happy Wednesday to you all!

This is an outfit from a while back that didn't turn out quite as planned. Well, the outfit did but the pictures didn't.  Just one of those times...

Onto a completely different subject now. Home Decor...sort of.  I'm pretty sure all of us love home decor (furniture in this case).

 I'm currently in the process of finding an awesome but affordable bed. Turns out finding something nice and affordable is hard, very hard.  I've been stalking (feels like stalking) some of the popular home decor/home furniture sites.

I've looked at SO many beds, especially over the last few days and always just one thing is missing...if the style is perfect the color is wrong (this style is neat, if it only was lighter). If color is perfect the style is not it. If color and style are perfect the price is not (totally not picky over here).

As of right now this Arch bed is my favorite (the only thing that bugs me about it is that the headboard doesn't extend all the way down. But our mattress is high enough, it probably wouldn't be visible).  Second place is probably this one and third one is this Wingback bed.  

Which one is your favorite?

weekend style

Coat /// Sweater old - similar here and here // Jeans old - similar // Boots // Bag // Scarf old - similar //

Hope all of you had a great weekend! 

I must admit that I'm trying to be better about reading 'Item Description' when I purchase something online (which nowadays I shop mostly online).  Anyone else has that problem? 

Anyway, I decided to purchase a bright pair of Hunters.  I know, I know...too much money for rubber boots. A few years ago I said that I'll never buy them because they're overpriced. Once again, I proved myself wrong. Now that I'm older (and wiser lol), I try to save up and buy quality pieces and ones that I'll be happy with (and yes, more $$ doesn't always equal quality, but we learn what quality really is and buy smarter). 

Back to the story I really wanted to tell you....I didn't know they had more than one "style" of Original Hunters.  These are "Original Tour".  They're softer rubber, I find them more comfortable and for those who have skinner legs these fit better.  See, need to learn to read item description. 

What do you think, are Hunters worth the price or are they just a rip off. Don't be shy to share your opinion. 

Wishing you a great Monday!
