You’re like, really pretty

(and kinda pricey but I love you anyway)

I can practically hear my mom’s words now: You sure have expensive taste. What can I say, mom? I like pretty things! All these finds are certainly no exception. I can tell you from experience I have splurged invested in two Harris Wharf London coats over the previous as many years, and I think they’re wonderful. Hence why this season, I researched adding a few more to my coat collection. This was before I imagined Joe’s face when he saw the exact same coat I already own, just in green. Then again, if I had a dollar for every time someone has complimented on those coats, I could pay for this one, so…

You guys probably know my style is pretty simple—I stick to neutrals, things that can be easily mixed and matched, definitely into the whole “capsule” wardrobe thang. However, sometimes as I browse online, I come across styles that are not me, but so, so pretty and beautifully crafted. These booties and this blazer definitely fall in that category. Where would I ever wear a sash-tie satin blazer in fire engine red? Probably only my house, but I like to think that even looking at how the model is rocking this jacket imbues a certain confidence.

Was this post random and pretty much eye candy only, all the items total budget busters? Yes, but sometimes you find things online that you think are so beautifully done, you just have to share anyway…

Wishing you a great week ahead!

    Victoria – This post is fantastic! I too find myself falling in love with things only to be disheartened when I see the price tag. It feels like such a waste just closing the browser and this is a great way to share those beautiful things!

    That lamp is gorgeous! My coworkers gifted me that vase as a going away present when I left my last job. Too bad we were late on the baby proofing and my son broke it the following year. (Thankfully he wasn’t hurt) I might need to add it to my holiday wish list to replace the one that broke!

      Oh man! Glad he wasn’t hurt but that vase DEFINITELY warrants a replacement! :)

      Hi Margot! I don’t currently have a daily newsletter going out with new posts, but you can follow via Bloglovin’ or Feedly if you happen to use those services! I post sporadically enough that I have been thinking about setting up an RSS newsletter, so I’ll let you know if I do!

    Hey, did you see the extra large (44X33) satin print of Ocean is like a Painting for only $99? I’m not sure what a satin print is, but this seems like a great deal.
