Good morning and happy Thursday! I'm continuing my series on style today sharing a few new outfits, which I have to say, this post made me so happy I'm not a fashion blogger! I love new clothes as much as the next girl but posing in front of the camera is not my thing. Please excuse any awkward poses or smiles... :)
Now let's take a look at some of my new clothes!
Green top from ASOS: Worn two ways - for work and causal!
Kim suggested a statement necklace under the collar because, apparently that's in style!
Thanks for the tip Kim! I LOVE this outfit!
Kim also bought the greenish yellow flats in the above picture. I LOVE THEM! They're so comfortable and cute! I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the mall the other weekend and didn't even recognize myself! (I love matching! Lol!)
Another Top from ASOS:
Neon Skirt from J.Crew: And say hello to Rocky!
I paired this shirt with a plain black top and fun bracelet!
This skirt also went surprisingly well with a new top from Loft, which, shocker- I bought for myself! I totally love this next look! It's so "me!" Very Kate Spade-esqe! What do you think?
Another Skirt from J.Crew: This next skirt matched the peplum top you see below, which was already in my closet! Kim also bought me an orange stripe top to go with this skirt. I'm really excited to have it in my rotation now, and can't wait to pair it with more pieces!
Tan Dress from J.Crew:
I'm obsessed with this dress!
The possibilities are endless! It's so versatile!
There's only one look here, but I can't wait to experiment and do more with it!
Chevron Top from J.Crew: Love, love, love this top and it's something I'd never buy for myself! More than likely, I'd totally overthink this in the store: how often will I really wear it? What about the sequence? What's the right size and fit for this shirt? That's why having Kim is so awesome! She just bought it and now, I own it and love it!
And bonus: It's a size SMALL! But I think it fits perfect. Way to go, Kim. I love this look!
So, there you have it! Just a sampling of the new pieces I got!
In total, here's what's new in my closet!
- Collared Shirt from ASOS
- Purple Shirt from ASOS
- This skirt from J.Crew in Neon from J.Crew Factory
- The orange skirt and chevron top are also from J.Crew Factory
- This casual white top
- This orange stripe tank
- This navy and pink stripe top
- This cute bubble necklace
... And, shockingly, there's even more!
It's been about two months since I hired Kim and my wardrobe has already grown tremendously. There's stuff I haven't even worn yet! However, one thing that's important to note that I bought some of these clothes and some of my other new pieces, myself.
I'm not sure if it's all the pinning of clothes, or the fact that I'm getting new stuff through Kim, but getting new stuff has translated into wanting even more stuff... at least for me.
In one sense, it's cool because shopping is funnier and easier (I shop intentionally for things that will match items I've received from Kim), but there's also no way I can funnel so much money into clothes in the long-term.
I'm going to try to be more aware of this in the coming months and try (try!) to leave shopping up to Kim. I'll keep you posted on how that goes. :)
Do you have any new outfits?
Does pinning clothes inspire you to shop more often?
