I shouldn't be giving away all of my trade secrets, but I'm in love with these shoes that were purchased on Poshmark. I know, you're probably thinking it's gross to buy used shoes, but these were brand new, never worn. I can totally say that is factual because Kacie pulled the protective plastic off the bottoms of these shoes one morning while laughing at me for not knowing it was there. #truefriendship

Have I also told you how much I love T.J.Maxx? It's totally hit or miss at all times, but when I go to the one in my hometown I usually find some great pieces–bonus points to the T.J.Maxx workers for keeping it impeccably cleaned and organized all the time.

One of my favorite looks for as long as I can remember has also been a basic black and white look. There is definitely nothing groundbreaking about this ensemble, but some times you just have to go back to your basics.

    1. I could totally live in black and white, Amy Ann! My closet used to be comprise mostly of those two shades. I've slowly introduce a spectrum of color into my wardrobe, but I still feel most comfortable in black and white ensembles.

    1. Haha! Thanks Kacie! I did find brand new shoes indeed on Poshmark. They were a major find! Definitely check out the site. I've found some super cute stuff on there, and then some major disappointments so just be careful when shopping.

    1. Thanks Abigail! I was totally drawn to the lace hemline, and my clutch was a last minute add on that added a nice pop of color to the basic look. Thanks for stopping by!
