March Favorites

whoorl march favorites

I think we just might need to make this a regular occurrence. Let’s talk about what I’m loving this month.


Foley Corinna Lady Tote – I have forever loved the mid-city totes from Foley Corinna, and this one has the best color scheme. Someone needs to buy this.

Madewell Drifter Shades – Those peachy-pink frames are the cutest ever.

Joie Menton Sandal – I’m obsessed with neutral shoes. Tan, gold, pale blush, subtle animal prints, I love them all. You can wear with anything, and hint hint, skin-colored shoes make your legs look miles longer. (And this gal needs all the help she can get!)

Vintage Short-Sleeve Pajama Set – This will be mine soon. Can’t decide between the navy or white, though.

Pour La Victoire Shanna Lace Up Sandals – You guys, I audibly gasped when I saw this pair in the cognac shade. SO GORGEOUS. Also, like I mentioned above, legs for miles. And miles and miles with those 4-inch heels….

Juxtapose Dress – I’m attending a wedding in Cabo San Lucas in May, and this is a top contender.


Factory Stripe Pocket Dress – This dress has the exact same shape of a Madewell dress I bought a year or two ago, and it’s the easiest thing to wear ever. Love the little polka dots.

Striped Breton – Bought these tees in blue and grey. (FYI to those of you new to Boden. Sizing runs smaller than Gap, J. Crew, Madewell, what have you. Size up one size from your usual.)

Factory Scoopneck Button-Sleeve Tee – I now own these tees from J. Crew ($32.50) and Factory ($19.50). The shape is almost identical, but the difference is in the weight of the tee. The Factory ones are much thinner than the J. Crew counterpart, however, I think it’s worth the savings.

Gap Suede Fringe Moccasins in Gold – I guess I’m not the only one who fell in love with these shoes. Sell out city.

Gap 1969 Camo Always Skinny Skimmer Jeans – This is my little personal shopping victory for March. Remember the Elizabeth and Paige camo skinnies I wanted last month? Well, these are just as cute and 1/3 of the price. SCORE. Oh, if you are interested in these, be sure to try on several pairs of the same size…they definitely vary and it might take trying a few to find the perfect fit. (Pair #3 for me.)

J. Crew Featherweight French Terry Sweatshirt in Marine – Soooo soft, and so cute paired with the camo skimmers and gold moccasins.


J.Crew Indigo Floral Popover – I had high hopes for this blouse, but the combination of the fabric weight (thick indigo cotton), smocking, and pattern made it a bit too Laura Ingalls Wilder for me.


ASOS dresses (#1 and #2 from this post) – First off, I loved the comments on the dresses (Dress #1 – “You are totally an Amish sister wife on her way to church!” and Dress #2 – ranging from “it’s adorable” to “mehhhhh”), so I ultimately decided to keep #3.

Alright, ladies. That’s my March roundup. If you have any specific questions about the items, let me know in the comments!

    I also have a neutral sandal addiction but have noticed that a lot of the sandals have gotten more narrow in the front of the foot in the last few years. I wear a regular width shoe but now the sides of my feet hang off the sides of the sandal. What gives? New narrow shoe trend? Want to do a feature on neutral flat sandals that aren’t super hard soled so I can walk to the park or wear at the office and still be comfortable?

    Neutral shoes are always a must in our closet for beautiful combinations…

    I agree! Not nearly as cute in person. J.Crew missed the mark on this one:)

    What size are you getting in the J. Crew featherweight French terry sweatshirt? I’ve had my eye on it and I think it’s time to buy!

      Even though I typically wear a XS, I got the S so it would be roomy/slouchy. Glad I did!

        Good to know! I’m also waiting for the Gap moccasins.

          I wore the Gap moccasins for the first time today and they broke! (I was at Gap when it happened, so I exchanged for another pair. Fingers crossed…)

            Good to know! I’ll test them out at home first.

    ooh, that Factory Stripe Pocket Dress is cute! I haven’t ordered from J.Crew Factory yet. How’s the quality?

      The quality of the construction is on par with J. Crew – the price difference is mainly in the fabric realm. For instance, I have that exact striped dress from Madewell, but it’s 100% silk, opposed to Factory’s polyester one. Tees are a bit thinner, but all in all, it’s good quality for the price.

        Are you happy with the Factory Stripe Pocket Dress? How does it fit? Post a photo!! I just ordered it — couldn’t beat the price ($39.99 + an additional 30% off).

    I have been viewing the Juxtapose Dress, also. I wasn’t sure about the collar. Not used to having a neckline so close to my…neck!

    I am having a sandal addiction right now, too. I love the ones you picked out. They look so buttery soft!

    Um, I think those lace up heels were meant for me with a name like that. Just sayin’……
