I'm looking forward to wearing a lot of muted pastels and blacks together and denim for texture! Black bows and sashes. Black sunglasses. Black flats. Black jewelry! I love the contrast. Woven items - such as flats. Lace up boots, preferably with eyelet cutouts for warmer days. Chiffon fabrics. Thin knits for breezes.Of course, my dream bags: the Mulberry Oversized Alexa bag in Oak, and Proenza Schouler's PS1 large leather satchel in a gorgeous pastel green. WHY MUST YOU BE SO FAR OUT OF MY BUDGET?! It doesn't help that I'm an unemployed college student. At all. I mean, I spend almost all of my money on food, books, paying my cell phone bill, paying New York City's ridiculous metro fare of $2.25 a ride/$4.50 roundtrip four days a week, minimum (at least it isn't as bad as London's fares. How do you guys survive?!), more food, and impulsive shopping trips to the sale section of stores. Someone should employ me! I'm a hard worker, promise.

  1. I'm looking forward to the great spring fashion trends as well! I've had enough of snow boots every day and a giant hat so I don't freeze (upstate NY, here). The muted pastels, some fun heels with shorts, I'm SO ready! You're right, too many great things are out of the unemployed college kid budget, but just wait til we get amazing jobs! ;-)
    Cute blog!!

  2. I loveee all of the florals and pretty things going on here. It's lovely! Ugh. I hate being an unemployed poor college student. It's the worst! I miss being a poor High School student- at least I never had serious things like tuition to pay for!

  3. love the last photo. the skirt, litas & fur are gorgeous. x

    p.s. I'm having a giveaway on my blog for a $50 giftcard to PTAK apparel if you'd like to check it out. :) x

  4. oh my goodness i swear i was totally just thinking the same thing, i just bought this really pretty peach/cream striped sweater and i cannot wait to wear it with black!!! I really love th second photo the crop top is so cute :0

  5. I wish I could wear some long flowy things like thesee but I'm afraid I'd look like a super frump. I'll just pretend I can wear them!
