A bit of green

shirt: thrifted (woohoo!)//sweater:Gap//shoes: steve madden//skirt:forever21

Today marks the official one month that I have been on my shopping ban! I thought it would be really hard but it's actually much easier than I thought. I almost didn't make it though since I went to old navy a few days ago and saw the sheep sweater. I had to run out of there before I made any baaaaad (haha) decisions.

  1. I love your new blog layout and the fact that you separated your outfits by weather, what a cute idea!

  5. Oh hey, you'd totally blend into my room right now! Hehehe. I LOVE how bold this outfit is, Joyce! I'm pretty sure I've never not liked one of your outfits--all so cute all the time! The green peeking out from your awesome striped sweater is just lovely.

    I'm so proud of you for not buying anything for a month! That's awesome! I think that once I go back to Uni I've gotta do the same. :P

  10. LOL. Baaaadd decisions. :) I must see this sheep sweater. Although I probably don't need it either. I love the sweater you're wearing though! And thrifted. Aren't little thrift gems the best? I love the pop of green from your blouse and those wedge sandals are sooo cute! <3

  12. Dude, I am so proud of you for making it through a month of no shopping! I just stared my ban for January and as long as I don't go to a store, I'm good. (Too much of a visual person, internet shopping never gets me, but put me in the middle of store where I can touch stuff and oooh boy, it's not good.)
    I love how surprising and fun you are with your shoes choices! I love your blog so much because how much much you re-wear your clothes and while you re-wear your shoes, they always seem so fresh and surprising! (I need to figure out how you do that. Are you just really care about what shoes you buy, so you only have ones you love?) The pairing of the sweater and the skirt is so sweet but I love the play of textures between the two.

  13. yay, congrats on your thrifted blouse! I think it's the first thrifted piece I've seen in your blog, hehe, and what a beautiful colour too! I also love the shoes.. have always loved actually :P

  22. Haha, love the sheep joke! Your wedge platforms are so cute! Good luck with the shopping ban. When I did mine, I found it was easier not to go into stores/look online so you don't tempt yourself :)

  24. I can't imagine a shopping ban - mostly because I like Target. I think mine would be worse if I couldnt buy anything - clothing i'd be okay with! Glad you are going well with it though. Thse skirt is SO cute and those shoes are so great with it
