So here’s the thing. If you ignore what I did on Friday, March 24th, I wasn’t too far over my budget for March. But the 24th was my last day in NYC – the conference ended on the 23rd, and I designated Friday a “me” day to gallavant around the city and do whatever I wanted before heading home.

I went to the MoMA in the morning, took myself to brunch, then went down to SoHo and shopped to my heart’s content! I mean, I know I can buy all these things online, but there’s something magical about bopping around the greatest city in the country, going from store to store, enjoying the sunshine and admiring the Flatiron building in between.

So let’s just agree that my NYC shopping spree doesn’t count, K? If you can cut me some slack, I’ll reward you by showing you all the goodies I got on the 24th! Check ’em out below!

  1. All of the dresses you wore in NY kiiiiiilled me. Also I am dying over that yellow dress. I’m a big yellow fan, especially on blondes, and I see you are too! Basically, I’m dying to see you wear all the things.

    Actually, some of the NYC locations of major retailers get pieces that aren’t available in all locations or online. So, total justification for your spree!

    You have such a good eye for purchases! I just love everything you picked up, especially that geometric dress and all of your J.Crew finds!

    Maybe you’ve touched on this before, but with all the new things coming in each month, how do you make room, or clear out the things you no longer wear/want/need/like? I am struggling to rebuild my wardrobe after having two kids and finding my style/size again and it seems like my closet keeps growing but it is still full of things I never wear!
