This springy weather has me in the mood to shop. First up, bags. I recently organized my handbags and realized I haven’t bought a new one in quiet a while. I think this is mainly because I tend to purchase classic styles that I never get sick of and colors that never look dated but I’m wanting to break out of my love-of-basics mold. So far the top brands I’ve been admiring are Lizzie Fortunato, 10 Crosby Derek Lam, Loeffler Randall, Steven Alan, Moyna, and Foley + Corinna. They have the perfect edgy mix of pony hair, beads, mixed patterns, or colorfulness that I’m looking for and that I know I won’t grow tired of too quickly. Yay, for warm weather!

Besides the above here are a few more items I’ve saved online & waiting for a sale (shh!):
Street Style, Sort Of
It’s not everyday you see this many Chanel bags on the side of the street being delivered. It brightened my day for a second — until I realized none of these were mine.
Chanel = ultimate holiday hookup.
I’m completely enamored with these silver Loeffler Randall oxfords but understandably they can be a bit pricey for most with a price tag of 350 dollars — however, there are great alternatives out there like these silver oxfords I found on Tobi which recently went on sale for 15 bucks! This is is more of a splurge versus steal situation rather than save.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not wishing summer away so quickly but with the recent rainy weather and chill in the air, I’ve been thinking of fall. Actually, I’ve been thinking of ankle boots.
One thing I do before any season change is save images, tear sheets, and links to things I want to buy. Yes, I’m organized but in a dangerous, shopaholic sort of way. Here are a few brands I swoon over in varying price ranges that make a mean boot:
This pre-fall collection by MSGM makes me wish I was smart enough as a young girl to have pulled items from my grandmother’s closet. The clothing and styling is gorgeous and very reminiscent of my great granny…in the best way possible, of course.
