Elaine and I met up at Square One last week for a shopping date. Shopping with a blogger friend is LOTS of fun…but can also lead to situations such as this:
CHANGING ROOM TWINS !?! But seriously, how can you resist a polka dot chambray shirt? Especially when it’s on sale for only $19!
Here’s a closer look at the shirt – I love it – gorgeous material and the perfect length to wear tucked in or loose. I plan on wearing it with a pencil skirt and black tights.

Some of the other shirts I tried on at Old Navy – definitely feeling the nautical theme. Oh…and I might have ordered the striped blazer online, after it went on sale…
I also fell in love with the look of this pleather trimmed moto jacket from H&M. However, I’m not sure if it’s a keeper – it has a high wool content (too warm) and feels a bit scratchy when you wear it. But the cut and fit is amazing…what should I do?

My last purchase of the day was this sparkly coin purse from Coach – I love coated canvas products – they look new even after frequent use.

p.s. Was so excited to get my Olivia Mew Valentine portrait from the Biotherm Event – I’m going to frame it:

I always enjoy your blog, and this Shopping OOTD bring to mind a question/request…Could you do a post about your tips for layering sweaters with button down shirts?I can never seem to work out the sleeves for myself– they bunch or they're too tight, etc.Just a thought. =)
Thanks for your request Ariadne – what a GREAT idea for a post – will be sharing my tips soon 🙂
Love it! It looks like you guys had so much fun!
Thanks Louise – it was SO much fun because we have similar taste – and were able to help each other find great pieces 😉
Your layers always look pristine! Great finds and I am loving the moto jacket… but if it's scratchy, not sure you will love it?Sequins&Stilettos
