I'm pleased to report that I have two new pink additions to add to my winter and spring/summer wardrobe! Isn't this pink coat dreamy? I spotted it for 50 percent off a few weeks ago and decided it was time to snag it. They were down to the last seven of them when I ordered it.

I received it a mere week later. I couldn't wait to open the package! It was even prettier in person

Earlier this winter, I purchased a similar coat from Korea for a song (nearly half the price of the Modcloth coat). As I've said before, I don't think one can have too many coats living in Iowa! I like to pair them with whatever I'm wearing on a given day—and as a pink lover, I have a lot of options in this hue. Do buy with caution when ordering clothes from Asia. They are all much smaller sizes than here in the U.S. and what looks big like this coat isn't really. 

My other recent pink find is this darling soft pink/peach dress with an embroidered overlay, which I found while shopping with my friend Anne in late December. It was from the shop's last summer collection and so it was deeply discounted at just $35! This is NOT me in the photo (It's taken from the shop's site but the dress is no longer available). My dress is at my tailor because I needed to get portions of it taken in. Can't wait to get it back and start wearing it this spring!


After being disappointed by my newest wallet's rather quick demise (The snap broke after only two months!), I was elated to get this Kate Spade wallet (style: Stacy in Emma Lane fabric; $98). This photo doesn't do it justice. I normally don't go for colorblocking since it's a little too contemporary for my taste but something about this wallet captivated the pink lover in me.

After seeing it while shopping with my hubby one weekend, he surprised me with it one evening all wrapped up in this adorable paper.
