Spring Finds

I take baths quite often and I usually spend most of my time on my nook perusing Pinterest, blogs and online stores.  Well, I typically check Charming Charlie’s once every 2 weeks or so, and I’m so glad I remembered to check earlier this week because they’ve just put out several new bunny, cat and monkey watches.  I can’t resist cute and quirky things, so I had to get a few. Here they are (click on the images to be taken to the CC site):

Another thing that I have been on the lookout for this spring is cheap floral flats.  I’ve also been on the lookout for some denim flats.  Luckily, I found some winners!  All 4 of these shoes are very comfortable.

Denim Flats Floral Payless Flats

The Payless shoes, above, have memory foam insoles.  I really like the denim shoes because I sometimes have issues with trying to figure out what shoes I should wear with certain shirts and jeans.

Floral Target Flats Black and White Striped Flats

The black and white striped Target flats, are great for pairing with floral tops, scarves and purses, as I mentioned in my previous blog.  The opposite is true for the floral Target flats – they would look great with stripes and dots.

Here’s an outfit I created with the Target shoes above; consider them Part 3 to the Mixing Pattern Blogs (Part 1 and Part 2) I posted earlier.

Green, Polka Dot Shirt and Striped Shoes

Polka Dot Shirt from ModCloth.  Cardigan from Target (similar here).  Jeggings from Levi’s.  Shoes from Target (click on link above).  Cat Watch from Charming Charlie’s (click on pictures at the beginning of post).  Earrings from Target.

Speaking of dots and stripes, I found this shirt in the store and this bag online that would also pair nicely with different patterns:

While at Target, I couldn’t resist checking out their bags, t-shirts and cardigans.  Here are a couple of things that caught my eye.  From what I’ve heard, orange is the it color this season, which is great because it’s my FAVORITE color.  I love it.  It’s also getting paired with cobalt and teal (see Pinterest Told Me To blog):

I still see a ton of mint things out in the stores, so I think that color is going to stay around for quite a while.  I love mint!

Speaking of cardigans, I think the best, inexpensive, high-quality cardigans I’ve found come from Banana Republic Factory.  They are so silky, durable and their buttons are the best.  They’re just perfect all the way around and they sell different colors each season.  Right now they have a red cardigan and a deep purple that are fabulous…these are on sale for $8.98!!!!:

Since it’s time for spring cleaning, I thought I would start selling my old clothes on Ebay…especially since I just found out that we got pushed up into the next tax bracket and we have to pay some unexpected taxes!!  Click on the “Shop My Closet” page link at the top of this page.

I think I’m going to do these “style finds” blog posts once a week…there are just so many cute, new things out there right now!

Take care,

Lauren
