Went to NYC & All I Got Was...

I know, I know, this is far more tame than the neon green I wore last, but lets be honest - Colour Scares Me!!!
I feel far more comfortable in neutrals, and while I occasionally add a random pop, neon green is quite far out of my comfort zone... I loved the response to it though, so I will definitely have to style it again!

I bought this top at F21 on Fifth Avenue in New York. I know what you're thinking, "you went to FIFTH AVENUE and went into a FOREVER 21?!?!" But lets face it, I am far too poor to go into a Chanel, Gucci, or Prada, regardless of how badly I want to. That, combined with the fact that I have absolutely no self control when it comes to pretty things would have left me in a world of hurt.
I'm proud to say that on my vacation I spent only about $400 on clothes, which I budgeted and saved for. I did splurge a bit on a Michael Kors bag (which will debut on the blog soon, I'm sure!), but even that I got at a bargain for only $200! All in all I'd have to say I deserve a good ol' pat on the back!

Edit: I just realized you can see puppy bum in the reflection in the mirror! Haha, awesome.


  1. Well you look super cute in neutrals. I think stick with what makes you happy. Also at least you did some shopping. I couldn't go somewhere without bringing at least something back. Go you for sticking to a budget.

  2. Hahah, I am laughing because last week I came back from vacations which included NY. I also visited the F21 store on 5th.
    Happens I also bought one top: bow top, very similar to yours :)


I'd love to hear from you!
