Discovering new apparel

Top & Necklace: Francesca's Collections (here)
Skinny pants & Vest: maurices (similar here and here)
Boots: Fergalicious (here)

My husband and I happened upon a little store this past weekend. We were walking through a mall we had never been in before that day. I was doing my best to not walk into every store, simply because my husband is not a fan of my shopping habits. But as I walked past this small piece of heaven, there was no way I couldn't enter. As soon as I stepped inside I felt myself drift into blogger heaven. You may or may not know what I mean by this. Blogger heaven is a little place I've found myself recently. Every time I come upon a piece of merchandise I think belongs in my wardrobe, I ask myself, "Is it blog-worthy?" Well, everything in this store was in fact blog worthy.

I did all I could to resist taking out an equity loan on my home (I'm kidding!) and instead I left with two must have pieces. They are featured in today's blog. The necklace and the shirt. I love the pattern of this shirt and the necklace just went with the shirt so perfectly. So, that is the story.

Oh, what was the name of the store, you ask. It was called Francesca's Collections. I have found a new place to shop. Have you been there?
