Ok, I don’t need these shoes. I have to keep telling myself that because they aren’t really that expensive (on sale for $142 on Shopbop) so I COULD buy them. But no, I don’t need them. I can’t walk around the city in heels like that. But they are SOOOO pretty! So, if you live in a place where you don’t have to walk everywhere, then you might need them, and you should buy them now, while they are on sale and before they sell out 🙂
These t-strap heels by Seychelles are a perfect pick for Spring! The shimmering green and beige colors fit right into the hottest color pallets seen on the Runways for this season. Wear them with opaque tights, a floral dress and a nude cardigan now and wear them with your favorite nude skirt and denim skirt in the Summer.
Today’s daily love affair is with this gorgeous waistcoat from TopShop.com. It is a great Spring/Summer piece that can be worn now with a blazer or cardigan. The color along with the crochet detailing at the back make this piece a perfect part of your Spring 2011 collection. It is not only feminine and flirty but also structured and sophisticated. Definitely a piece that can be worn from day to night. If I had an extra $90 laying around, it would be mine!
Ran across these today and fell in love. The light denim mixed with the orange contrast stitching are a perfect color combination for Spring. They would go great with Khaki cropped pants, boyfriend jeans, or nude/tan colored shorts. Probably not a practical buy, but certainly something to lust after!

I had a chance to try on the J Brand Earhart Flight Pants today and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked them. Unlike the houlihans that, lets face it, don’t really look good on anyone under 5’7″ or weighing more than 115 pounds, these pants were both comfortable and flattering. Although, I do recommend sizing down in them because they run a bit large. You can dress them up with nude heels and a fitted blouse or wear them casually with strappy sandals and a slouchy tee.
If $235 is a little steep for you (I know it is for me), there are some alternatives out there that can get you the same look for less:
