Ann Taylor blouse & necklace | J.Crew belt | New York & Co. pants | Brahmin bag (c/o Vogue) | Jeffrey Campbell shoes | ASOS claw bracelet | Fashionology.nl claw ring & cross bracelet | Tag Heuer watch | Nails: Revlon “Siren” | Lips: Revlon “Lilac Champagne”

Clearly, I went to Ann Taylor this weekend and did a lil’ shopping. I bought a pink version of this shirt (I love silk!) and this sparkly necklace caught my eye near the cashier. Luckily, I remembered Ann Taylor gives a 20% student discount on regular priced items and spent the next 5 minutes with the cashier pulling up proof of enrollment at my medical school’s website. I’m industrious like that.

I named the post after my favorite and constant companion nail polish in high school. It was L’Oreal Jet Set in “Hasty” and I have never gotten as many compliments on a nail polish in my life (or as many friends who went out and bought it for themselves). This shirt’s color reminds me of it. Oh, how I miss it so! I kept it so long it eventually dried up into goo, and I sadly, regretfully, had to throw it away. I never found it in stores again.

Gettin’ funky/scary with my ASOS claw bangle (seen here) and my cross bracelet and claw ring from a website in The Netherlands. I have to say, buying overseas online is a scary and major pain in the a**. It took a month to arrive, with no tracking, and no word from the company. I was happily surprised when I received the package in the mail, however, since I’d completely forgotten about it.

Once I saw the almost-matching bangle on ASOS, I had to grab it. It arrived much faster.

    I absolutely love the colour of your shirt – perfect for spring. It reminds me of sugared almonds or macaroons. I keep relating fashion to food at the moment – I guess they are two of major passions. Love the shoes also. Hope you had a wonderful weekend! xx

    I did a little shopping this weekend too! I found a menswear inspired watch that I thought to get because you are always rocking one of your fabulous ones!

    I love how your outfit whispers that spring is on it's way and that in no time cold days will be just a memory.

    Classy outfit. I like the bracelet and ring much better on–not as scary. I have never liked those shoes, but now that they are with this outfit, they are beyond perfect! I am not even a purse person and I LOVE THAT PURSE! (God bless Vogue). Super job on photos too!

    Every aspect of your outfit screams chic. I may have to hunt down those white pants. Are they see through as most white pants are?

    Also if your beloved nail polish starts to dry up add a little non acetone nail polish remover. It helps to thin it out a bit.

    Oh My you look stunning! I almost bought a shirt in this same color last week! That tone of pink is just perfect for Spring but last minute I passed it up convincing myself it wouldn't work with everything. Than you show up this morning proving me wrong! Excuse me while I rush back to the store to scoop that shirt back up. You look amazing!!

    That claw bangle is out of control! I'm in LOVE with it.

    In other news… your outfit is so classic and chic. You look amazingly pulled together with just the right amount of edge courtesy of those killer claw accessories! Nicely styled.

    OH MY GOSH. So gorgeous, as always! I am seeing so much pink/white/red/nude and I am LOVING it! You are inspiring me here! I know LOFT does a teacher discount… I wonder if Ann Taylor does too?!

  9. says

    Ooooo Ann Taylor does a 15% student discount too?! Apparently The Limited has that kinda deal going as well … i wonder if Banana Republic does too. I need to take better advantage of my student ID when I can!!

    Love the style and the pink texture of the shirt!! O and that lipstick is stunning on you :) The ensemble color combination is something similar to what I wore to Match Day (with a green purse though only to avoid St. Patrick's Day pinchers) but girl, the colors definitely pop more on you!!

    Ah! I remember Hasty polish. It was a great color. I need to get more silk tops into my life.

    Wonderful outfit! The shirt and necklace are adorable and a great buy!

    I had a similar situation with my favorite Nail Polish from Ellen Betrix (dark red, almost black). It reminded me a lot of my high school years and my period as a goth. Never again found a similar color :(
