Recent Spring Buys

Wednesday, May 1, 2013

Some of my favorite stores have had great sales recently so I've been stocking up on some new stuff for the spring and summer. Lately I've been living in basic t-shirts with scarves and accessories but I've also been adding some staple dresses and shoes to my closet as well. Here's some of the great stuff I've found:

I love the vintage cotton v-necks from JCrew. They are soft and thin, so they work well for the warmer weather. I got this bright purple color in a size small. The shirts aren't super long but do cover the top of my pants. I wouldn't recommend drying these t-shirts though, they do shrink quite a bit in the wash.



I got this ponte swing dress in red from JCrew recently. I plan to wear it to work and to some spring and summer events. It has short sleeves and is made of a thick cotton fabric. The skirt is pretty wide but the top is form fitting. I got a size 2. 



These "Caroline" Tory Burch flats were on sale for 25% off so I couldn't resist buying them. I wear my silver Reva flats all the time so I figured these would be a good investment. I got the nude color in a size 9.5, which is the same size I have in the Revas.



I had been wanting Benefit's Fine One One cheek highlighter for a while and finally purchased it when I got a 15% off coupon to Sephora. It's great to keep in your bag for a quick mid-day touch up. Plus, you can use it as lipstick too. 



If you've found any great spring deals, please share them here!

  3. I'm dying to try the fine one one! Does it work well if you apply it straight from the tube (as in the highlighter at the top of your cheek and the bronze part at the bottom in one swipe?)
