Current Lusts

I have been the absolute worst shopaholic ever these past couple of months. Why do I always seem to find an excuse to buy everything?? Example - was it needed to buy THREE pairs of boots in NYC? A little... However - I was pretty proud of myself last week in Chicago though - as soon as I stepped into the Topshop US flagship store - I about hyperventilated. Not to mention there was a HUGE sale. I tried on (kid you not) 30 things and walked out with...... one single pair of jeggings!!! And I have been wearing them nonstop so I know they were a good purchase :) I was really proud of myself for not getting anything else - I was so close to buying 2 sweaters but at $80 each - it wasn't worth it! I have been buying a bunch of random crap so I will posting a haul video very soon as well as a fun fall video tag! 

However - is it bad that I have already started thinking about what I NEED for Christmas? These are the items I am currently eying/stalking/pinning

SO obsessed with the new Tory Burch handbags - I love how the logo looks - this one is the Megan Satchel in Peruvian Opal : $550

These Rebecca Taylor Stud Shorts are my OBSESSION. I see no reason not to buy them. I think they will be so cute with tights, boots & a black t-shirt - on sale for: $125 

This is kind of plain but it looks soooo comfy!! :) Top from Savoir Faire : $36

This dress I have been eying it for a while - the only thing that is holding me off is the sizing - I have been having a hard time finding dresses bc of my chest - I wonder if it would be too small but the price is awesome and this would be so cute with tights & boots! Winter Orchard Dress : $28

This scarf is gorgeous! I would love to wear this with jeans, boots, a solid colored top, and a leather jacket! Lulu Floral Print Scarf : $18

If you know me at all - you know my sick obsessed with Rose Gold - hence these next two items. I already own a MK rose gold watch but check out this BABY. 
MK Watch : $375

imagine that shit paired with this amazingness of a bracelet! MK Bracelet : $195 - XMAS gifts anyone? :)

I have been obsessed with this Karen Kane blazer ever since I saw it on someone's blog - I think it may have been Devon Rachel (such a good blog btw, love her style!) - Karen Kane Drape Neck Jacket in Oyster : $98 (on sale) - I may buy this, so work appropriate!

Last but not least - I am needing a pair of nice black pumps - I think my sam edlemans are beyond repair! - LOVING these Zara ones! Zara Platform Court Shoe : $89

OKAY now.. who wants to buy all of these for me? ;-)

Weekend Re-Cap!

Happy Monday everyone! To those who have today off - I hate you & to those that don't - Hiiiii! I had quite the weekend... why do they always have to go by so fast? Friday after work - I went to go get my nails done and then met up with my friend Kenny at PF Changs - I forgot how good this place is! They have so many things on the menu! 

new gel manicure - OPI You Don't Know Jaques (perfect fall transition color) 

yummy food at PF changs 

Went to bed around 10:30 PM since I had to be up at 5:15 AM for the 5K! The competitive adult 5K started at 7:15.

Before the race! 


After the race! 

I did a pretty good job considering I am not an "outside" runner - I got a cramp towards the end so had to power walk for a bit but I was still around my goal! After the race - I headed to check out the outlets - they are about 30 min away and just wanted to go look around their HUGE forever 21! I literally tried on 25 things and walked out with..... NOTHING! nothing at all. oops. That was a waste of 2 hours.

OOTD - true religion jeggings, nordstrom shirt, tory burch clines flats, scarf from BP nordstrom

hello fall!

 I took a 2 hour nap after because I had the Prince Royce concert that night! OMG what a great concert! He is so cute and such a great singer live! 

My OOTN - blouse from boutique in California, French Connection sequin shorts, Nordstrom necklace, cross necklace from ebay
