This was a big jewelry month for me. I knew I was going to be buying a few items from Stella and Dot because of the party I co-hosted with my friend, but then JCrew Factory had a huge sale with free shipping and a necklace on Jane.com caught my eye. I'm pretty sure I am set for a while with jewelry (probably). In regards to clothing, I didn't get too much. I wanted a new tan/beige coat, because my old one was worn out and someone asked me if I was pregnant in it last year (months after having Claire) so I was a little overly sensitive about wearing it (silly-yes, but you should feel good in your clothes). I had some credit to Twice I cashed in with the skirt and a few items on thredUp caught my eye just recently so I placed an order. I had been debating a fur vest for a while and for $10 ($12 with shipping and tax) I couldn't say no. I'm still on the hunt for the perfect pair of black booties, but I don't really have much else on my wish list. I would love to add more pattern into my wardrobe so I will be on the look out for that! How did you do this month?

  7. Nice haul this month! My faves are #3 (love love love the combination of tortoiseshell and art deco) and #7 (I have a similar vest that I wear all the time, but pink tweed is nice and unexpected).

  9. Thanks Jen! I wear that necklace so much. It goes with everything! I think I just saw it recently on Jane.com or Groopdealz again for less than $10! I love tweed anything and I think the vest will be a fun layer!

  12. I am in love with all the amazing jewelry (especially the necklaces) you got this month. I added about 25 new necklaces in my closet in 2013 but yet I don't own anything like the ones you just purchased. The Fur Vest & Neutral Coat are beautiful too and totally worth buying, especially for those prices. That Sutton Necklace is so versatile, also.

  13. I've been loving those necklaces! They are really versatile and go with a lot. I am so glad I got that coat, too. It's really warm which is great for the cold weather we have right now. I can't wait for my fur vest to get here. It was a size larger, but I am hoping it fits! I knew I wouldn't find a vest like that for that price again!
