Quick post about a few things I'm currently obsessing over:
Got this chain mesh necklace from Ann Taylor today
I don't usually shop at Ann Taylor (actually I never do), but I was at the mall with my Mom and she wanted to look inside, where I stumbled upon the necklace, marked down to $15 from $80! It's got this chain mail look to it, which ties in nicely with my whole fashion-forward-meets-history-nerd thing. I'm picturing it with a basic v-neck t-shirt and a high waisted skirt...
Second, and sadly I don't own these yet (in fact the skirt is sold out it's so popular) because they are a bit more than $15, are two pieces from J Crew:
(The skirt and the shorts)
The skirt looks like woven straw but then it's got these amazing neon pink stripes. I don't care for how they styled it in the catalog with the sweater tied at the waist, but in person it is CUUUUUUUUTE. And also about $158. So I must now forget it.
And the shorts are so chic and summery. Mmm.
I also returned the orange shoes and purchased some new ones which I will post a picture of as soon as they come back from being dyed (yes, people still do that apparently). They are very cute and I'm fairly certain will be comfortable.
