My Spring Shopping List

My valiant resolution to stick to a monthly clothing allowance and not resort to shopping as therapy crumbled after about 1.5 months. That was when I realized: 1) Not shopping wasn't doing anything to address the underlying reasons for the stress I felt, and 2) the miserly amount I set meant I couldn't buy the better quality pieces I really wanted without blowing my arbitrarily set budget, thus making me more miserable.

So, I'm back to shopping as I please! (Within reasonable limit, of course.) And this season, I've got my eye on a few things to round out my wardrobe. Some are variations on basics, like a silk blouse in a new colour and stud earrings. Others--like tuxedo trousers, peplums, and a pair of beyond basic black suede pumps--will infuse more casual pieces with a sense of sophistication.

1. Judith & Charles 'Lana' pant

2. Gorjana gold plated stud earrings ($42.29)

3. Madewell silk 'Sheffield' shirt ($74.99)

4. Pour La Victoire 'Chantel' pump ($267.30)

5. Tuleste Market tulip stud earrings ($68.72)

6. Babaton 'Cody' blouse ($110 at Aritzia)

  1. I'm totally in love with those Pour La Victoire pumps as well! UGH, the scallop is absolutely divine! I could live with owning that Madewell blouse too ;)

    My shopping list at the moment consists of Ray Ban Clubmasters, a MK Watch, and a slouchy black leather bag. Oh yes, I'm ambitious.

    Bold Subtlety

    1. All of those items sound lovely!

  2. Such gorgeous choices Lisa!

    I haven't even had time to make up a shopping list so I'll just steal yours ;)


    1. LOL nice. Hope you're enjoying your staycation!

  3. A pencil skirt is on my spring shopping list. I still haven't had a chance to make it out to J Crew to try one on :(

    What would you plan to wear the silk blouse with?
