Confession-- I'm an emotional shopper.
When I am sad... I shop.
When I am happy... I shop.
When I am lonely... I shop.
When I want to celebrate... I shop.
When I'm stressed... I shop.
In a week filled with projects, tests, work, events, and pay day (the instigator) I found myself building up my my online shopping bag to de stress and liven up my day! Here are a few things I found along the way...
Purchased on a quick whim after seeing it online I knew I had to have this neon pink sweater. Neon is one of my favorite things this summer (as you have already read) and the pink cardigan by J. Crew is a MUST and lifted my spirits instantly. 2 points for emotional shopping!
When I'm looking to for instant gratification I am rarely dissapointed by Urban Outfitters. Last Fall I found my beloved snake skin watch and I am again drawn to Urban's great source of time. I couldn't decide between the tortoise or the gold (that I've been coveting for sometime now) so I went for both! The metal and tortoise will be much cooler on my wrist than my already cloth band this summer.
Continuing on my urban binge I stumbled upon a floral scarf. I'm obsessed with everything floral patterns right now and when it showcases my favorite orange and corals this season I am obligated to add it to the cart!
Summer dresses are an instant mood booster! You feel girly, comfortable and they keep you cool. I couldn't resist this Silence & Noise bustier dress that just might be perfect for some graduation party events. And how you can you resist a dress with pockets- bonus!
And here is what remains on my wish list for a REALLY bad day. 3.1 Philip Lim Belted Twist Hem Skirt. Perfect for summer and every cute floral print tank I have and just waiting for a bad day to justify the purchase!

I know, I know I'm a little late but I can't help but post some of my favorite dresses from The Costume Institute's American Women Gala at the Met Sunday night. So many of these women are becoming new additions to my fashion inspirations.
Sienna Miller in Emilio Pucci... her arm candy isn't too bad looking either.
Camilia Belle in Jason Wu with the designer himself. This dress is stunning and gorgeous red.
Jessica Stam in Rachel Roy. My favorite part of Stam's ensemble are the jewels by Bulgari, statement pendant is gorgeous!
Blake Lively in Marchesa. Props to Lively for sticking to her assets and showing off her legs at the formal event.
Elizabeth Banks in Gucci. I think what I like best about this is that its not something you expect Banks to wear. The lace tights did it for me.
Emma Watson in Burberry. LOVE HER!
Tom Ford in his own design. The man can do no wrong. I always love him.
