I can't remember the last time I've gotten some jewelry for myself. Long necklaces and statement earrings are on trend right now and I wanted to try them out before investing. The turquoise fringe ones are really cute and will be great with spring and summer outfits. The other pair is gorgeous, but they are so heavy I can't only wear them for a little bit at a time. Another reason I am glad I didn't splurge on any of these pieces! Both necklaces have already been worn multiple times. They are really neat looking in person!

Many of the other items I was thinking about I was able to get through collaborations so I was very lucky this month. I really wanted some embroidered pieces and the ones from Zaful are perfect! I love the classic pieces from Chadwicks, too. For next month I am just looking for new sandals. There are some really cute peep toe booties I have my eye on and these Steve Madden ones from DSW. We are headed to Arizona for a vacation in a couple weeks so I'll actually be able to wear them before May!

What else is on your wishlist for spring?

  1. So many gorgeous picks!! Love the pink jacket, so gorgeous for spring! Xx

  2. I have those turquoise earrings, Laura!! Only I bought them through Stella & Dot for a lot more money!! Did you know they are changeable so they can be worn 4 different ways?

  3. The embroidered stripe top is my favorite! Statement earrings are def. in, I have been wanting some pom pom statement earrings. You always do so good every month! $20 for the monthly total is awesome!


  4. Great haul this month! Evidently I need to start checking ebay for jewelry selections. I really like the long necklace you selected. Thanks for linking up and enjoy your weekend, Laura!

  5. I'm all about the statement earrings you picked up! The fringe pair is especially adorable for spring.

  6. Ooh I love those earrings. I never think to look on ebay for stuff like that but clearly I should--what great deals! I also love that black embroidered top too, what a gorgeous piece!

  7. I love all the lavender, blush, and burgundy pieces you got this month! Those sneakers are super cute!!

  8. great budget post! looks like some great deals!!!

  9. Oh I look forward to seeing how you wear that black embroidered top! There are so many cute embroidered pieces around at the moment, it's making my no shopping challenge hard to stick to as I want to buy them all, haha!

    Hope you are having a good weekend :)

  12. Superb Laura ! getting so many items as collabs surely worked.
    I have to say that the idea of adding statement earrings has been lingering and I finally bought a pair however I made sure they were not heavy ;)
