Raid My Closet: My Purchases for This Spring/Summer

I have done some serious shopping over the last few months ladies, so I thought I'd go ahead and post pictures of the items that I have snapped up.  And just to show you that I follow my own fashion advice, I have divided my purchases in categories based upon certain of the Spring/Summer trends this year.  Of course, all of these items were purchased at a price much less than retail using the discount codes and coupons that I post on this blog!


By now you should know that I am seriously obsessed with Nanette Lepore's dresses, primarily because they fit my body-shape so well.  Thankfully, she has come out with some super cute dresses in neon hues for this Spring/Summer.  Above: Nanette Lepore "Boadacious" dress for $298 on; Nanette Lepore "Valley Girl" dress for $298 on

Colored Pants

I love the colored pants trend and have purchased cute a few pairs to wear with both flats and heels.  Above: Pilcro straight ankle chinos for $88 on; Confab chinos for $88 on; Gap 1969 lightweight skinny boot-cut jeans for $69.95 on (in surf pipe blue and fuchsia).


Above: Aqua colorblock "Girlfriend" blazer for $108 on; Mia "Renegade" wedge for $69 on; Tinley Road tie-neck contrast blouse for $49 on

Metallic Basics

Above: XOXO "Chanel" wedges for $49 on (but in shimmery gold); Sabine faux pyrite earrings for $15 on  These earrings were a great find as they are super cute and sooooo cheap!!!

Seeing as how this is my favorite Spring/Summer trend since it fits my personal style, you know I had to scoop up some ladylike items.  These sunglasses are TDF!!!  Above: XOXO "Harmony" wedges for $49 on; Bvlgari cat's eye sunglasses for $650 on; Bamboo "Crush" rosette ballet flat for $22.20 on; Cabel perforated floral bow pump for $30.80 on; Rhinestone chain headband for $24 on

Crop Tops
So it's not technically a crop top, but this jacket is definitely cropped.  I was pleasantly surprised with the fit and quality of this jacket since it is faux leather.  It was a great find!  Above: LC Lauren Conrad faux-leather moto jacket for $76 on

Chambray is still big for this Spring and Summer so I picked up this cute chambray blouse to pair with my colored pants.  The jackets from Urban Outfitters are one of my favorite (I already own one in blue).  Above: Vince Camuto "Allik" sandal for $89 on; Sabine beaded statement necklace for $24 on; Swingy chambray tunic for $88 on; Alexis Bittar spike cuff for $245 on; Ann Taylor cardigan for $68 on; Alexis Bittar ring for $295 on; Report Signature "Montauk" pump for $150 on; Silence & Noise boyfriend blazer for $78 on (in black and green).
