recent additions to my life

IMG_2936 IMG_2924ok that sounds like i got a dog, but nope, just more shopping.  i’m horrible.

jack wills suede bag (not pictured): this bag is ameeeeezing!  real suede with a real leather strap and excellently slouchy.  the orangey tan color is beautiful but neutral and i think it will look amazing as it begins to wear in.  can’t wait to have this one for a long time.  and the best part?  i got it on sale so it cost me about $70.  pretty good deal for a 100% suede purse, if you ask me.  now i want the navy and the grey which just cannot happen.

butter london fiver: i’ve been on the search for the perfect, white based minty nail polish for a looong time.  essie mint candy apple is too dark and chalky, nails inc swan street is a little too green, essie find me an oasis is a little too blue and all of them have sucky formulas.  but then, i happened upon this beauty.  i believe it is from either a 2011 or 2013 collection and it is such a beauty.  pretty close to what i’ve been dreaming of.  it’s looking more green in the image above, but in real life it is like a much lighter, more faded essie mint candy apple.  ya know?

essie petal pushers: i had this in the mini version and loved it so much that i had to get the full size.  it’s the greatest color – blue, grey, sort of dark, sort of not.  not too dark to wear in summer, but still a little bit edgy.  it’s a very cool neutral shade in my opinion.

shashi bracelets: i’ve been wanting a small collection of shashi bracelets for years.  but since they are pretty much only available online, i’ve always resisted.  and then i saw them in an actual store!  i had just gotten my paycheck so i splurged and got 3 and even though they are ridiculously expensive for what they are, i’m really excited about them.

charlotte tilbury x norman parkinson matte revolution lipsticks: I’M SO EXCITED!  i love love love the matte revolution lipsticks (i got the shades glastonberry and lost cherry when they were released for a month a little while ago) and they are so dreamy.  i knew that i had to get these two when they were finally released since the formula is so amazing, these two colors are so beautiful, and they are limited edition.  did i need them?  absolutely not.  could i help myself?  absolutely not.  1975 red is the perfect orangey red shade for me because it feels slightly cool toned, so it’s not too orange for my very pink skin.  miss kensington is an amazing nude that basically looks like my lips but with a little something extra.  i am so glad i splurged on these, even if they were very unnecessary!

j brand maria jeans in blanc (not pictured): it seems like every few summers i get a new pair of jeans in my search for the perfect pair.  white jeans are definitely a summer staple for me, because they can be a little bit more dressy if you want them to be or casual if you want (i love white jeans with a basic tee and sandals) and look so good with a tan.  the j brand maria is one of my very favorite denim styles – the perfect high waist, perfect skinny, and perfect weight so when i saw this pair in the perfect shade of white, the decision to purchase was out of my own hands.
