Blousy and Studs? Yes, Please!

Ok, so I have been really really good lately on shopping. I've bought a couple of Lilly pieces that were holy grails and older; therefore, I had to buy them. Didn't know when they'd ever resurface again. Other than that, I've been really concentrating on not shopping for Lent. Overall, I've done much better than I ever have.

I spent the day with my mum yesterday. We had lunch on a patio because the weather was beautiful. Too bad it will be getting cold again this week. Boo!

 I went to the mall to pick up some work pants because Express sent me a $40 Happy Birthday coupon. Don't know if this is the standard now, or if it's because it's my birthday and I haven't shopped there in quite some time. Either way, don't care. I bought a pair of black pants for work and was on the way out when I spotted the Portofino!

I ended up turning around and trying them on to not only loving them, but I purchased THREE. Just a little fyi, I normally wear a small in most tops from almost all lines I buy. A small fit fine, but to me, it fit more like a dress shirt versus that flowy, blousy feel. I sized up to a medium, and I thought it was much better. 

I ended up getting these: 
I think with the birthday coupon and one of those coupons they mail to you, I got these three shirts plus a pair of black editor pants all for like 150. Not only will these be something I can wear to work, they can also transition into something I can wear out or to dinner. 
Don't forget about my Grace Adele clutch giveaway here. Only a few more days to enter!

Love these! I just got a silk button up from Forever 21 that has studs on the collar.

It doesn't get any better than studs! Did you have a good birthday? That $40 coupon was nice!

I love those shirts, but in order to get a good fit in the shoulders and boobs, they look like I"m wearing a mumu.
