my recent acquisitions

If you haven’t heard, emerald green is Pantone’s color of the year.  I have always been drawn to this color.  Remember Kiera Knightly’s amazing emerald silk dress in the Atonement film?

Striking, isn’t it?  I need to incorporate more emerald green into my wardrobe.  I just learned that I am a deep winter according to an online color analysis questionnaire (lol) and green emerald was on my color chart.  Done and done.

Michael Kors Emerald Crystal Bracelet.

Autumn Breton Long Sleeve Top in charcoal marl & red stripe and vanilla & navy stripes, respectively.  I am addicted to stripes, it’s a problem.  Yet, it’s hard to find something more classic and crisp than Breton stripes.

Guernsey Tee in navy & vanilla stripe.  I cannot wait to wear this on my upcoming vacations and of course, this spring and summer.  I bought the Autumn Breton and Guernsey Tee from Boden USA online (my first Boden purchase).  Right now, there’s a 15% off plus free shipping promotion (code: WAFL), but note that the 15% discount does not apply to sale items.  All 3 tops are on sale, but I saved on the $10 shipping charge–woot.

This is my favorite acquisiton.  You know I’ve been eyeing tulle skirts lately (remember?), so I’m thrilled that I had the opportunity to be gifted a tulle skirt.  I’m ready to get my inner ballerina on, but I’m going to toughen it up a little.  Maybe with killer pointy toe pumps and a leather jacket.

What have you recently acquired that gets you excited?  xo
