Staple design and NEW find!

I am making a commitment to myself….NO SHOPPING UNTIL MARCH! Seriously.

We are having friends over today at the house with all their kiddies for a fun post holiday playdate which gave me a reason to find a cute casual outfit and really search through my closet. I found SO many things with tags and realized that I hit the January SALES with such gusto….I may have overdone it a bit. Oops! Some of my guilty pleasures were the Nicole Miller Philadelphia Sale, the Lolas Sale, and a few others.

The good news …..it was super easy to find a casual chic outfit today to host friends at our home. The bad news is I have to STOP shopping until the spring weather hits because I do not need a DAMN thing.
Well, maybe a few accessories here and there……
Happy Shopping!

Shirt Nicole Miller Collection from Nicole Miller Philadelphia
Silk Cargo Pants by RD Style from Lola’s
Tank Banana Republic
Shoes Stuart Weitzman

I really couldn’t love the easy draping of this silk shirt…and the watercolor in OLIVE, my fav color. Nicole Miller is my staple. There isn’t much she does design wise that I am not in love with. This shirt and I were simply meant to be.

LOVE the pockets on these pants.  So comfortable and the steel grey color goes with EVERYTHING! This is a new brand for me, RD Style…I feel lucky to have found them and hope their spring collection is a lovely as the fall.
Came inside for the earrings pic…they kept blowing in the cold January air and you couldn’t tell how FABULOUS they are. In love with the vivid colors and they are light as a feather, hahaha:)

    Aw, I love that top so much you don’t even know!!! And I am with you on not buying anything, I need nothing either. Make sure I stick with it, k!

  13. Love this look, Carly!! The earrings and the top compliment each other in such a wonderful and surprising way! You look so fresh and beautiful!

  14. L says:

    You and me both! I have to admit that i have been really enjoying looking through my closet and putting new things together. This is a killer outfit and I love the way you mixed the looks, but pulled it together with the same hue. Love earrings!

  15. Kristin says:

    What a gorgeous look! Those shoes are something else!

  16. Zarna says:

    that shirt is so beautiful on you!! i also love the trousers – you look wonderful 🙂

  17. You look so chic for a playdate. I am usually in jeans and a tunic when I go to playdates.

  18. Carly says:

    Honestly Rali, I usually am too…but we hadn’t seen these friends in a while and I decided to kick it up a notch….the heels definitely did NOT stay on long, lol.
    Shannan….Earrings were from Lolas a small boutique here at the jersey shore.

  19. I did see an almost identical pair of your earrings at F21! Love the shirt and the pants look so nice. I am with you…with the exception of some new yoga pants that I just purchased online…I need NOTHING. I have not stepped foot in a clothing store or mall since December, which is huge for me. Organizing my closet and finding all the stuff with tags was a very sobering moment. Ditto with my son’s closet! Good luck to us! Lol 🙂

  20. Cargo pants in silk sounded really odd to me but they look fantastic! Looking forward to seeing more of your sale purchases (I also have several dresses to blog which means I should also consider a spending ban really!)
