Friday Finds!

Today I had a fun little shopping adventure that led me to wandering outdoor eco-friendly boutiques & browsing large-scale malls.  (More photos will come soon, but those will be in a different post!) Some days you just have to give in and purchase those items you have had your eyes on & I can definitely say that today was one of those days. Remember to occasionally treat yourself :)


Chloe K Shirt
(in stores, not online yet)
I had my eye on this grey and black striped oversized shirt from BP at Nordstrom & finally decided that it was necessity. Better to buy it now then regret not purchasing it a few months down the road, which I do all too often. You know how that goes! I think this shirt is very versatile. It can be worn with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a casual day out or can be jazzed up with black leather jeggings & a statement necklace for a night on the town. I'm sure I will end up doing an OOTD with this shirt later on!

Abercrombie Bootcut Jeans
(on sale at store, cannot find specific link)

As for these jeans, they are just a basic bootcut from Abercrombie. I have always loved their jeans and I think a dark wash is perfect for fall.

I think my absolute favorite purchase from the day is this J Crew Stone Frame statement necklace! It is absolutely gorgeous and I already can think of so many outfits I can pair this with for all seasons. I loved it so much that after I bought it I put it on and wore it today! You will see me wearing it today further down on this post. It comes in 3 different color schemes (this one is the Pebble one) and is currently on sale at J Crew online & in stores.

So  I may be late to this craze, but I also purchased my very first top from Lululemon today! Isn't this camo print to die for?!? The lady at the store said women are buying all the camo print clothing items like crazy. I can't wait to work out in this.

The last purchase was a Billabong purse for school! I really like this bag because it is rather sturdy and even has a little compartment for my laptop inside. Plus the print on it is adorable.

Here's a glimpse at today's look!

As summer is drawing to a close, I figured that I better wear those bold vibrant summer colors a few more times. It was quite warm outside today so this light dress was perfect & I paired it with my Kate Spade purse I received as a gift from my aunt/uncle/cousins for my birthday. Don't be afraid of having a pop of neon in your wardrobe! Having neon pops here and there can spice up your outfit & draw attention to it. Neon can seem intimidating, I get that, but when worn as an accent color or on an accessory, it can amplify a look in ways that other pieces cannot. As for accessories (besides the purse), I paired this dress with my favorite sandals by Sam Edelman & wore a cheap pair of tortoise shell sunglasses from Forever 21! I'm always dropping my sunglasses so I just can't get myself to purchase an expensive pair of glasses, especially when cheaper alternatives like these ones are so stylish and AFFORDABLE! 

Here's a more up-close picture of the dress! I love the vibrant colors and floral print!
