A little festive

I didn't really plan on a red, white, and blue outfit to post today, but this just sort of worked out. Never mind that the top has wording in French.

I'm definitely enjoying all these Memorial Day sales - perhaps a bit too much! Coco's on the Green was having their half off sale and I could not resist a silk Joie blazer - never mind that it's a size extra small (and a tiny bit tight), it was $21 and I was smitten from the moment I put it on.

One item I really wanted was the Kate Spade Lily Avenue scalloped edge tote in white. It was a bit of a splurge, so I forced myself to sleep on it, and when I saw it was down to $208 with an extra 20% off at Amazon, I decided to go for it. Hopefully I will love it as much in person as I do online.

To all of you who celebrate, I hope you have a happy Memorial Day!

  1. Happy Memorial Day! Your look certainly is festive - and funnily enough, appropriate in both the United States and French, since your flags share the same colours ;) I have to admit, I realized, much to my shock, that I haven't bought anything since mid-April. But knowing that there are J. Crew handbags on sale on Amazon means that just may change before the end of the day! I can't wait to see you carrying your scalloped tote, I think it's going to suit you beautifully. And I must admit, I'm intrigued by the idea of a silk blazer, too! I'm always in awe of your amazing Coco's finds.

  8. Woohoo for the red white and blue!
    I've been pretty good at avoiding the sales! Although I did buy a couple things in the Madewell sale (basics, haha) They won't arrive until June though so I'm not putting them on this month's wardrobe update ;) (and I used paypal anyway, haha)
