RECENT SPRING PURCHASES

Hey, y'all! How have you been?
Today I'm sharing some of my recent spring purchases and what I think about them so far. 
This post is a bit longer than normal, so stay with me!

First up are shoes. For the most part, I used to stick with a pair of two of shoes per season — I'd wear them nonstop until it was time to come up with their replacement. 
I was never much of a "shoe girl" (I'm sure some friends + family are rolling their eyes as they read this, haha!) but I think I'm starting to become one!




I picked up these Aldo Cicci Block Heels (last seen here) a few weeks ago. I haven't gotten much wear out of them because it's not quite sandal season yet here in Washington, D.C. 
I'd been searching for weeks for a great dupe for Stuart Weitzman's NearlyNude Block Heel Sandal, and this pair seems to be the closest I've found. I was especially drawn to the designer pair because of the moderate heel height, something I've not been able to find in comparable dupes. I will say that the Aldo pair is not the most comfortable shoe I own, but it gets the job done (as long as you're not walking too far.) This shoe fits true to size.

Next, I picked up these Steve Madden Lecrew Flats. I've been seeing the lace-up flat trend everywhere. As most of you know, I'm not one for trends. My taste is minimalist and classic, and I typically hesitate to run after trends. But sometimes I'll step outside my comfort zone, and that's exactly what I did here. I chose a super versatile neutral color — it goes with everything in my closet and helps to tone down the "boldness" of the strappy style. At just under $70, they're at a great price point for a piece that may go out of style. With that said, the price definitely reflects the craftsmanship and materials used — I can't really see these holding up for more than a season or two. Overall, I'm happy with this purchase and have been wearing them on repeat! The shoe fits true to size. 

And now onto my favorite! Enter: these Coach Pipher beauties. I came across these while on the hunt for those Stuart Weitzman dupes. I was immediately drawn to this shoe because of the moderate heel height — I could explore the city all day in these sandals! This sturdy shoe features a leather upper, lining and sole. I had the chance to sport these for a few days while in Texas for Easter, and I already know these will be my most worn shoe this summer. This shoe fits true to size.



I should probably cool it on the shoe buying, don't you think?
After months of lusting, I finally picked up the diptyque 'Roses' candle and have been loving it. I'm a sucker for anything rose scented and let me tell you, my entire apartment smells like a luxurious bed of roses with each burn. I love the pretty + simplistic packaging and can't wait to add a few more scents to my collection.


And for the grand finale of recent spring purchases — Louis Vuitton.
It's actually quite funny, because I totally had no intention of buying any Louie within the near future, but it sort-of just accidentally happened. Oops. How does one accidentally buy Louis Vuitton? I don't really know (just go with me on this one.) I picked up the Neverfull GM in the Damier Ebene canvas and the Key Pouch in Monogram. These are two pieces I've had my eye on for (seemingly) forever and I'm glad I finally made the splurge. I know they'll make great travel companions!

What's your most exciting recent purchase?
