Friday Finds

I'm just rocking an old sorority bid day tee shirt and skinny jeans today, so I figured I would share a few items that I would like to add to my own collection with you! I'm surprised at my self for not already owning these must-have basic items!

I didn't really mean to create an outfit, but, I guess I kinda did cause I would totally wear all these items together! I set up my polyvore account today - what an interesting and fun program! Obviously I'm new at this so don't laugh too hard at my attempt at graphic designing.

1. Chambray Shirt - The shirt of 2012. The chambray shirt was EVERYWHERE! Why on earth have I not picked up one of these yet considering they literally go with everything - work, school, or play!

2. Maroon Tights - in general, I just need more tights. I only own a pair of gray so I should make the investment into black tights for sure and I think maroon tights would be fun to have around!

3. Leopard Heels - I used to have a pair but they broke (so sad :[ ). I wore them all the time and I miss them.

4. Leather Skirt - because everyone needs a little leather in their wardrobe. Sometimes, you just wanna feel like a badass. 

5. Boucle Jacket - So feminine with its clean lines and pretty texture. Inspired by Coco Chanel herself, a boucle jacket is the perfect addition to any wardrobe to make you feel a little richer.

What items do you want to add to your closet?

With Love,

    1. I think the ones in the picture are Nine West, but I don't remember, lol. I just saw them and about died over how cute they were! still trying to figure out how Polyvore works, hahah :p

  2. I have maroon tights and they're my favourite! I love wearing them with black dresses, my chambray dress shirt, and with my grey city mini & a white oxford. :)

  3. I, too do not but MUST OWN a Chambray Shirt. I bought a similar Chambray-like button-up a couple of months ago but it is still far off from a real Chambray. I'd love a full leather or leather-like skirt, too.

    This outfit is beautiful.

    I used to have Polyvore, like two years ago and I became extremely addicted to it. I still have the account but haven't used it in two years.

    1. I figure a polyvore account will probably become addicting for me when I have a ton of homework piling up and I need to procrastinate, haha! (me..procrastinate?...noooo)

  4. I was just thinking this week how I need 1 and 3. I don't wear rights but I did just buy some maroon leggings yesterday. So excited! : )

  5. You did a wonderful job! I agree that everyone needs a leather skirt in their wardrobe. Always great to have and they last forever.


  6. Fun post! I love the leopard shoes :-)


  7. Aw I love polyvore! Great list of essentials. I feel an online shopping spree coming on

  11. Absolutely love this look! You picked some really great pieces that will work together nicely and separately. Chambray shirts are the best, you can dress them up or down.
