Saffiano Wallet, Gladiator Sandals & Recent Outfits

I’ve been looking for a slim, streamlined wallet – and after some window shopping, I decided on the Coach Soft Wallet in Leather. It has space for all my essentials, is made of durable Saffiano leather AND it’s hot pink! Plus, I had a 25% off discount code – so it was the perfect time to make my purchase.

Studded Soda Gladiator Sandals

Gladiator sandals are a summer-time staple – and I loved the look of these studded Soda ones I found at Winners. They have a zip up the back, so they’re easy to slip in and out of. They also had these studded Hurache sandals but they looked a bit too bulky on me.


H&M Floral Kimono

There are so many pretty Spring fabrics at H&M. When I got to the changing room, I realized I had unintentionally picked up coordinating pieces…can’t go wrong with cream and pink!

H&M Floral Kimono

The floral kimono wrap is so pretty, but I didn’t know if I’d wear it enough to justify its price tag. The pink tweed jacket is a beautiful colour, but it’s too boxy and cropped.

Recent Outfits:

Despite it being May, it’s still sweater weather – it feels so chilly out! And as usual, I’ve been wearing a lot of Old Navy – all my tops in these pictures are from there.

    Yay…I think your shopping trip posts are my favorite. I love seeing what you choose to try on and what you end up taking home…or not. I especially love that blouse and pink moto jacket from H&M! And I stopped by and voted for Elaine just for you. :)Gina — Gah!! This is awesome! And thanks for the styling idea again 🙂 I love these shorts paired with the blue top and all the little bursts of red on the nails, lips and wallet. Plus, your hair looks great in a bun. I can't remember if you've done that on the blog before but it looks great.Gina — On the Daily Express

    The wallet is gorgeous! Saffiano leather is the best isn't it? I love how durable it is, and the leather holds up very nicely. I really want a new wallet now! There's also a similar version by Tory Burch that looks cute :)Love your picks at H&M. I stopped in the giant two-story building in Las Vegas, but it was so crowded that I left. I'll have to visit my local store.

      Yes – I've accumulated several Saffiano pieces and am amazed at how durable they are – totally worth the investment 🙂 Sometimes local stores are better – while the Vegas H&M sounds amazing – shopping in a crowd is no fun!

    I'm in love with that wallet. I almost got it when I bought the pink Coach bag but forgot to go back and grab it because I was so excited about the bag haha. Love your purchases!

      Too funny about being excited about the bag and forgetting the wallet – now with the 25% off PCE – it's a good time to go back and get it 🙂 Then we'll be wallet twins LOL!

    I also just bought a pink wallet, and the color cheers me up every time that I look at it. You have such a great eye for putting pieces together; the pink, cream and brown H&M pieces would've made a great outfit together.Brittney Another Beautiful Thing
