Lots of bright colors and a few items that were definitely out of my comfort zone this month! I feel lucky to be at the point where I have a great wardrobe foundation. To me, that means I have versatile pieces that are the building blocks to many of my outfits. That way I can add fun things like joggers or a bright tunic and still have several basic tops or bottoms to match them with. 
I finally replaced my bathing suit. I meant to do it last year, but my size was out of stock at the time. I am pleased to have a one piece option now, especially since it looks like Claire will be taking swim lessons. I feel much more comfortable with less skin showing at this point in my life! 
For next month I have my eye on a few fun shoes (these in pink?) , a pair of printed shorts (these or these?), and potentially a flowy, embroidered top (love this one from J.Crew Factory). Still on the look out for my perfect black and white striped skirt, too!

  1. Wow you scored some amazing deals this month! I love the Kate bag and I am still considering the Deloom romper. I did well on my budget until spring came along. I think I may need a shopping ban in June(: Susan

    You had a good month! I still need to try and do this one month... I love the color of that suit. I bought two new suits last year and both are bikinis, but I kind of wish I had a tankini... Maybe I'll shop next year after I get some more wear out of the ones I bought last year.


  8. Such great, colorful purchases this month! I'm digging those white jeans and the Loft striped top. I like the thicker stripes versus the one I have from last season-- can't wait to see how you style it for more inspiration!

  9. Thank you for linking up with Friday Favorites today! Great round-up, Laura! I love your wardrobe! You have the perfect mix of fun brights and classic staples.

    Have a great weekend!

  10. That striped + embellished top from LOFT is so cute - I've wanted a top like that for years but haven't been able to find one I really like. Another reason I should be checking out thredUP, right?!

  11. Great shopping, sugar foot! These are some lovely pieces you scored.

  12. Of course, I adore the pink handbag--those gray jeans are fab, too, though. A lot of great stuff here, Laura! T.

  13. You got comped quite a bit of fun stuff this month! So awesome :)

  14. As usual, I love all the items you bought! I am in dire need of replacing my bathing suit too--I haven't bought one since my honeymoon two and a half years ago!
