Back to Reality, Shopping & OOTD

I'm finally in Florida, and yesterday was the first day back into my usual work routine. It's hard to be gone for almost three weeks in one of the most beautiful places ever, than be expected to swing back into reality. I had planned to blog while I was away but I just didn't have the time. It's funny. When I take a break from the blogging world... it's like I haven't seen family members in sooo long. I really miss you all. :(

While I was gone, I did manage to do a little shopping. Are you surprised?

I've been looking for this book for a few weeks, but it's been sold out in several books stores. I finally got my hands on a copy at a local Target. Can't wait to dive into it.

Remember my rant several months ago? Well, It can rest, because I got lucky! I was able to locate a brand NEW pair of the Cynthia Vincent Cognac Wedges in my size on eBaY. And it gets better. I didn't over pay for them. I practically paid the same retail price [they once were at Target] before they were SOLD OUT.

You all know I'm a lover of heels...high, high heels. Well, sometimes you need a break, and a pair of wedges does the perfect trick. These suedes are by far the most comfortable shoes, and from the front, they appear to be ballet flats. Purchase here. The grays are on sale for over 50% off at my local Target.

This little treasure was found at a local boutique shop in New York City! I don't own a purse this color, and it would pair perfectly with a number of outfits. Love the studs!

Can a trench coat be any cuter? AND it's lined! A favorite Forever 21 find.

I can't get enough of lace, so when I spotted this beautiful, black, Merona for Target blouse...I grabbed it.

Express is having an amazing sale. These crop pants have been worn by many bloggers, so I decided to try it on. Although I'm "vertically challenged" the fit was perfect, the pockets are deep and they are very comfortable. Purchase here on sale!
