Shopping Your Closet

Don't you love that?

I pulled out a top that I bought on super sale from The Limited 4 years ago when my husband was in Iraq - that I have never, ever worn - and it just totally came together for my look tonight.

The top is perfect with two of this Spring's hottest trends: nude & lace.

I added to the look with my J. Crew gold & pearl necklace. On the bottom half, I wore dark rinse 7FAM skinnies with a pair of gold sandals I bought at Banana Republic last year. Yes - it was actually warm enough in Monterey to wear sandals. I would have taken a picture of the entire outfit but I was on my way out to dinner to celebrate my final Chinese scores! Which were awesome by the way - the best I could have hoped for :).

So, anyway, usually I would have taken a picture of the entire outfit when I returned home, but, somewhat embarrassing to say is there is not nearly enough light in this house for pictures right now - all the light bulbs in our living room have been dead for at least a week, but we've chosen to live in the dark instead of buy new light bulbs - you know, with all the effort that would require.

Now that Chinese class is over, I don't know what to do with myself!! Thankfully I still have this Vogue my friend in China sent me - I can read/study & learn the newest trends at the same time. Um, yay for Chinese Vogue?!

Until next time!
