blouse - J Fresh, pants and rings- H & M, clutch - Top Shop, heels - Aldo, 
gold cuff - Banana Republic, rings, pendant - I forget but maybe Aldo??

I know I just wore these pants in this outfit post a few weeks ago but I can't help it, they're my go-to fancy pants when I want to pair a bright top with black and white bottoms. I got them last year at H & M. I haven't bought anything from H & M in a long time, actually I haven't purchased any clothes from any store in ages, which is really unusual for me! I've been trying to wear clothing I already have in my closet and save up for high-quality pieces that I really want. I no longer buy just for the sake of buying. (Let's see how that pans out when I go to Arizona next week and visit Nordstrom Rack!) These days I have to really love something before I hand my credit card over. It's amazing what I can buy when I don't spend my leftover money solely on clothes! Like books, and workout DVD's and healthy food! : )

I love this - the shirt is really beautiful and I am obsessed with those awesome pants. I wish I was more disciplined in my purchasing these days. I really do need to start saving for more expensive pieces that I've been wanting for ages.

It's awesome you've been able to save your money like that, it's definitely something I'm starting to do but it's hard.
I love these pants, they're great with the bright green blouse, such a lovely combination!

SNOW?! - when does it warm up by you?

Style Isle said...

I am trying to do that same. Staying away from malls has been so hard and budgeting my self with how much i can spend has helped me really pick and choose what i like, love and REALLY want. But sometimes there are moments of weakness.


Ariel said...
