Impulse Buy

You knew I couldn't leave this top alone for long, right? At first I worried it was an impulse buy. 15 euros! Special price! And they didn't have my size. I wanted it so much I size up to a medium. Ok, so I guess it was definitely an impulse buy!

I think it was a good impulse buy though. The nice thing about a neutral color top like this is that is goes with everything. And the jeweled collar jazzes up even the simplest of outfits (like jeans and flats)! Plain colored tees are all well and good, but I find it is important to have special pieces like this as a go-to for those days when you need a little something extra!

  6. I have those types of buys all the time. Especially when the store is super inexpensive I will buy just because of the price and get home and be so mad about it. This top is really great though! IT was a perfect impulse buy!

  13. Pretty, Laura! I love that top. Sometimes impulse buys are the best ones! I would know- my middle name is impulsive when it comes to shopping. Love those bow flats, too! I need them- not want, NEED!

    Have a great MDW!

  14. That is a cute tee! I love the embellishment! :)

    I think the large size has a nice oversized look on you too - wouldn't have known it was the wrong size if you hadn't said :)

    I just LOVE that tee and I would have been tempted to by it, too! I love the embellishment on the top, that would have sold it for me.

  17. Sometimes impulse buys can end catastrophically and sometimes, they can end like this: a great addition to your wardrobe! I love the cool gray in the front plus the beads. It is so simple yet so pretty! :)

  20. I think the fit looks great on you, and you always need a little something to wear that reminds you of your vacation. So much better than a little tchotchke.

  21. The jeweled collar is such a nice touch! Any neutral top is good to have I think! Good impulse buy Laura :)

  22. Whether it was an impulse or not, buying that top was a wise decision! So fun and unique. I am also loving those adorable flats! Are they comfortable?

  23. Not at all! I am hoping they break in a bit! I have kind of wide feet though so that is typically my problem when shoe shopping.

  25. I knew I would have bought it. It looks so casual but chic with your dark jeans and necklace. You also chose a pair of very cute shoes.
