What I'm Wearing
Cardigan: Forever 21 (a V neck that I cut down the middle to create a cardigan)
Top: ASOS
Jeans: Madewell
Shoes: Christian Louboutin "New Simple"
Purse: Chanel 
Ring: Made Her Think
Nail polish: Essie and OPI "You don't know Jacques"

Just got back from a fabulous trip to San Francisco.  It was a work trip but still got some "play time" in.  I was so excited to meet up with the super adorable Lisa and her husband while we were down there and had a fabulous dinner with them at Prospect ending the night with their decadently delicious housemade s'mores.  YUM!  Definitely save room for dessert and get those if you go there!  Lisa and I chatted over our love of Chanel bags, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and ridiculously high heels while our husbands bonded over stuff like cars and um the Military Channel (yup, that's right, there's actually a channel just for military stuff.  If I wasn't married, I would never have known this.  Lucky me. *eye roll* haha!)  I'm a little, okay WAY behind on emails so apologies on the delay and am going to try and respond to all (or at least most) of my emails this weekend!

ASOS Printed Pussybow Swing Blouse - on sale for $12.55!
Or you could get the plain version of my blouse which I love in the cream. But the short sleeve version is really cute and great for the summer and comes in 6 colors. If you like the bows, you gotta see this adorable Kate Spade bow blouse.
If you want to try out mixing prints, this striped cardigan would be a great pairing with a printed blouse.  For those of you that live in a climate where you don't need the cardigan, try a drapey vest for a fun and different look. 
These Cheap Monday jeans are also great skinny jeans and they are on sale for $46.95 (also get 6% cashback at Karmalopp from ebates)
LOVE the color of these! The difference between the "Simple" and the "New Simple" pump is simply the extra platform in front and a bit of a higher heel. Both are relatively comfortable but for me, the simple pumps are way more comfortable as the New Simple pumps ran a bit small on me and took a bit of time before they stretched to fit my feet.

Louboutin is coming out with such pretty colors for the new season.  The Pigalle Plato pumps are SO hot. And still love the zipper Rolando pumps!  And if you are still looking for nude pumps, I'm completely obsessed with the new Beauty 100 pumps.  That bow! So cute!  Of course I can't leave out yellow shoes, so check out these adorable platform bow pumps.


I loved these colors together! I've been into wearing brighter colors on my nails lately but I liked the changes with these darker more neutral colors.

People are always so intrigued by this ring!  I love that's it's a statement but it's not super big or heavy like most of my other statement rings (namely my YSL Arty Ring which I love but it's really heavy!)

One last thing: Mother's day is coming up, have you figured out what to get your mom yet?  I haven't but still looking!  Just wanted to let you know that Ebates is doing special double cashback for Mother's Day so make sure to take advantage if you are going to buy stuff for your mom (or yourself!)  Also worth a mention, today's double cashback is at ebags for 12% and I love ebags for all my travel stuff, especially the packing cubes.  Which, btw, a packing post is coming soon!  If you haven't yet, you can sign up for ebates with my referral link and you and I will get $5 with your first purchase.  Click here for more info on ebates and how to use it.  There really is no gimmick or "catch" just straight up cashback for shopping online!

  1. Loving the outfit Tiffany! Especially the Chanel bag. May ask for one for mother's day but hubby may have a heart attack when he finds out the price :) Maybe I'll just buy one myself! Hehe. Thanks for the post!

  2. Another sweater turned chic cardi! I'll have to try that one of these days with sweaters from the "donation bin."

    Interesting you mention your new simples ran smaller and took longer to stretch out. I guess there is a lot of inconsistency amongst the shoes even in the same style. My new simples finally arrived in the same size 5 as simples, and they were loose on both feet, whereas the regular simples were almost painfully snug. So odd! Barneys said they'll stretch it out a little by putting it on their stretcher for a day (day?!) - do you recommend that, or just suggest regular breaking in via wearing?

  7. @PetiteAsianGirl For some reason last year I bought a ton of sweaters at F21 which was stupid because they are all so unshapely! They all got the scissors to cardi fate! :)

    Yeah, you're right. So many inconsistencies with Louboutin shoes. I can never buy them online because of that. I've never done the stretching machine because I'm slightly afraid that they would stretch it TOO much and then it wouldn't even stay on my feet. It took me about 3-4 times of wearing mine before they conformed to my feet so it wasn't too long so I do recommend going through a little bit of pain to get them to fit. Ah the things us girls do for pretty shoes ;)

  11. Gah! Love watching the housewives, especially BH. NY was my fave before Bethenny left. Now I love her own show. Yikes - too much reality TV. LOVE the outfit and I BET you and Lisa could spend hours gabbing about Chanel! :)

  14. I love that ASOS blouse... I always waiver over the pussy-bow blouses on their site. Do you think they'd look okay tucked into a pencil skirt for work?

  33. @alison*elle it would look great tucked into a pencil skirt for work! I would totally wear it that way.

    ReplyDelete
  34. @JENNY yes, the oversized ones work best! I even thought about doing the same to a few of my husband's old sweaters but it's not so cute on me, just looks like i'm wearing a SUPER baggy sweater.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Chrissy ASOS Sizing is terrible! I hate it, it's like a guessing game. I usually get the smallest size but with this one I got the Petite 4 but I probably should have gone with the 2 as it's slightly big.
