my closet

I'm getting there.

Believe it or not, I have not always been very fashionable.
Nay. In fact, I had a kitten t shirt that I'm pretty sure I wore every day until I was 13.
I also loved to wear my brother's clothes growing up (tom-boy syndrome), and have been a hit-and-miss ever since.

I'm getting there. I really think I am. I'm finally emerging as a woman, and I think I've developed into a somewhat consistent style that I'm starting to enjoy. Now, occasionally my husband will say, "Wait! Those don't go with that!" Actually, he's only said that once, and it will probably be the last time he ever says that.


He's actually coming along quite nicely, too :) he's been molded into a stylish sweater-wearing stud.

So anyway, having said all of this, my wardrobe is in a constant state of revision. I am slowly but surely molding my closet into what I want it to be. While I'm not foregoing the bargain shopping altogether, I would like to say that I'm moving into more long-term, well-made pieces. More quality, less quantity. More boutique-like. And more skirts and dresses!

So, as my readers, help me out here. I'm trying to narrow down my wish list into a few great spring items that I can laboriously save up for over the next month or so.
I need your vote! Since I can only pick a few.

The bottom line is that I'm enchanted with Ruche's new lookbook!! :)
How gorgeous is this mint dress, with a floral jacket? Love.

Now, on to my purchasing debacle.

So...this first one is out of stock, but I totally wanted this more mature, age appropriate kitten shirt :) haha!
Can't throw out ALL of my old habits...

I'll start with the dresses.
Which floral?
(I might have to get two. It's just too hard.)
Bright green or mint green? Long sleeve or sleeveless?

How about the bows?...
Oh so many bows.


I'm in love with comfy pullovers.
(I'm also really in love with mint right now...)
Lace or Stripes?

OR should I forego the comfy mint pullover, and spring for this adorable elbow-patched quilted jacket that's on sale??
(PS, my mom would rock this jacket. Maybe we should match!)

Don't even get me started on shoes.
How am I supposed to pick between these bright accent flats?
Green, Purple, Floral, More Floral, and Yellow...


Although I'm pretty sure I'm going to get these, no matter what else happens in my life :)

It's too much, too much, I tell you.

What are your votes?
I need some input here. :)

OH! And one last thing -- what are your thoughts on pastel-colored sunglasses? (Mint, or otherwise?)

Get to pondering. :)

In love,


  1. GET THE SUNGLASSES! Those are AWESOME. And I love everything else. Spring clothes are my favorite.

  2. Okay, I vote for the sleeveless dress, the lace mint pullover, the navy shirt with bow, and all of the shoes. :) But, if I had to vote on just one, I would go with yellow ones.
    Have fun shopping!!!
