it's all shiny and new

Do you like free stuff? I like free stuff! Free stuff could come to you... if you enter my giveaway...

But now, as promised, are some photos of my gorgeous new wardrobe acquisitions! I'm in love

from top to bottom:
american apparel button down
j brand cords
old navy wedges
jewelry was a present - a.k.a. I don't know where it's from? But I like it...

Don't you just love that feeling of a new piece of clothing, one that will look perfect with the rest of your wardrobe, fits seamlessly in with the rest of your look? That's how I feel about all these pieces. For one, my older readers will remember how I feel about this top from American apparel - I blogged about it a month or so ago, saying how much I wanted it but how it was too expensive for my sad little summer budget (this was pre-finding a job). Well, apparently my lovely friend Shannon reads my blog - actually it's hilarious, a lot of my friends read my blog, and then I try to tell them stories I've put up here, and they're like "already heard this..." - regardless, she got me my seafoam button down, and I'm so excited! It's oversize, it's sheer, it's that perfect shade of green. Love. Just love.

Next, on the subject of green, are my new cords! It's hard to tell in the photo, as they seem to have a magical, chameleon-like ability to change colors according to the light, but they are actually an army green. I got them on sale at Off Saks for a great sale, and I now own 2 pairs of green pants (you've seen the other pair most recently here, in that post) - pretty exciting.

And now, for my adorable wedges from Old Navy! Aren't they actually beyond adorable? I don't really wear heels or wedges in everyday life, but this is how I'm going to start - imagine these paired with the aforementioned cords and my favorite chambray shirt, or worn with my vintage floral dress! The possibilities are endless, and I will get to lord my height over all the short east-coasters. Mission accomplished. 

Last but not least (boy am I talking too much in this post), is some new jewelry, courtesy of my cousin and aunt for my birthday! Everyone who knows me knows my love for jewelry, especially of the long-necklace variety. So these are perfect. I mean, I could basically run a shop out of my jewelry box - but who doesn't love a necklace with tassels?

Ummmm, ok. So yeah. I'm done talking. That was a lot of typing for not many photos. Hope you enjoy, and have a lovely night :)
