sunshine shades (of yellow)

Sorry for delay in posts this week, readers! We had some bad weather, so it made it a little challenging to take photos outdoors without snow boots, mittens, and a giant down jacket (not so glam). But, hurray! Sunshine and warmth this weekend! I couldn’t resist sneaking some sun photos in throughout the weekend…

Our dog, Annabelle, couldn’t be happier to see the sun. Neither could I! I picked an outfit of sunshiny yellows to celebrate.

Top: vintage Carolina Herrara via thrift ($3) (shoulder pads and all!)

Blazer/jacket: Ann Taylor via thrift ($7, retails for approx $150)

Jeans: Levi’s ($88)

Necklace: Bauble Bar ($24 marked down from $38)

Boots: Not Rated via DSW ($50 marked down from $75)

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) As I’m sure you know from reading the blog, I rarely buy anything full price. However, jeans are one of the rare items I tend not to try and find on sale (if I do it’s a lucky day indeed). I generally just buy one light pair and one dark pair and then rotate them. In the past, I had a bunch of pairs of jeans, but usually ended up wearing the same pair over and over because it was the one pair that I favored and fit me best. Now, I just keep a couple of pairs and wear them all the time- and save myself the trouble of finding a specific fit on sale. Of course, that’s just me! I’m impressed by anyone who can find their fav pair on sale! If you’re in downtown Chicago, the Levi store is on Michigan Avenue is totally worth a visit. My favorite salesperson is Alex- he’s super helpful and honest! 

2) I recently made my first purchase online at Bauble Bar (necklace featured above). I really like what I got, but I felt like the pieces were a little off in color from what I saw online. I also felt as though the scale and size was a little off from online too. However, in the end, I kept everything I got and, for the price, the quality was good. I think next time, however, I will likely measure out pieces before I order them, as clearly the scale and color was a little off (could be me, could be them, who knows). They also sell their jewelry at Nordstrom, so that might be an easier way to assess the size and colors of pieces. 

Anyone else have Bauble Bar reviews? Sending you sunshine and warm vibes from Chicago! Thanks so much for stopping by, readers!

  1. Beauty in yellow! Super cute necklace! Good advice, I will have to kept that in mind. I’ve always been curious about bubble bar, but haven’t bought anything from their site… I think mainly because the Canadian dollar is just awful and I was hesitant about the quality.

    • I definitely like what I got in the end, but definitely color and scale looked off to me…but it could have been me, too- LOL. Either way, I kept it all- and the prices are awesome in their sale section. They also have free returns in US- so you can check and see if it’s the same policy in Canada 🙂
