Marigolds & Mulberries

I love new clothes. If everyone could just wear new clothes everyday, I reckon depression wouldn’t exist anymore.”    — Confessions of a Shopaholic

Isn’t that the truth?! Don’t you just love the feeling of a new purchase? How your mind immediately jumps to planning the outfit’s debut from the minute your credit card swipes at the checkout? Most of my new purchases never make it a day before being worn. It makes getting ready in the morning so much more exciting!

I wish I could bottle that feeling. Use it on the mornings that I stare into the deep corners of my closet (okay let’s be honest, maybe not DEEP corners, this is New York), having so many options, but nothing to wear.

Luckily for me, today was a new outfit kinda day. Inspired by my Banana Republic purchase and my inspiration board:


I fell in LOVE with this polka dot shirt the minute I saw it. I wanted it in every color! Of course, that’s no surprise to you. You all know how I feel about polka dots…they even had their own blog post.





I hope you like the colors I paired with it! Marigold with mulberry. My way of urging spring to arrive, despite the snow storm headed our way.

I’m not looking forward to getting dressed tomorrow. After a night of snowfall, and no more new clothes to wear…I could really used that bottled up feeling…

If you can figure out a cure, let me know!
