PIPERLIME HAUL


Spring White Dress Panama Hat

What better excuse to go shopping than a change in season, am I right ladies?!  Spring is officially here and enticed by floral prints and a great sale I just couldn’t help myself.  Piperlime is one of my favorite online retailers for the great selection they offer, their presence on social media, interaction with bloggers, and their awesome sales.  As I was perusing their website last week I was looking for some updates to my work wardrobe and a couple pieces for spring.  I purchased five items and they shipped quickly arriving in the cutest packaging.  (Most of Piperlime’s items come in a baby blue satchel with a silk ribbon, adorable!)  I also love that they offer free shipping and returns and if you're new to Piperlime you can sign up for their e-mails and receive a 30% off coupon on your first purchase.  Steal. 

Spring Fashion Haul Blouses
First I picked up two tops for work.   This Cross Front Floral Top by Eight Sixty is the epitome of spring.  It's an airy, easy to wear blouse that features a gorgeous lavender floral print.  Would highly recommend if you're looking for a blouse for work, and I would size down as Eight Sixty tends to run loose.  This Sheer Flower Embellished Blouse by Willow & Clay is just gorgeous in person.  It is a very pale lavender color with black and white beaded flowers embroidered throughout.  I wore this to work last week and have never gotten so many compliments on a garment in my life...Now the only problem is figuring out how I'm ever going to clean this thing, I tried my best not to sweat while wearing.  
Summer Sandals Nude Heels
Now onto the shoes... I picked up these nude heels by Joe's Jeans in the style 'Pete.'  I saw these on one of my favorite fashion bloggers Kendi Skeen, and just knew I had to have them.  When they arrived I was awestruck by their beauty, the perfect nude hue and the ankle wrap detail...swoon.  But I have tried to wear these and they hurt like a mother.  Because the heel is so thin all your weight is pushed onto the balls of the feet and it's not pleasant.  Will I sacrifice comfort in the name of style?  I'll keep you posted.   I also scooped up these Steve Madden sandals in the style 'Donddi-L'.  They have a brown leather ankle strap and a leopard strip covering the toes. So cute!  And better yet they're comfortable.  I love Steve Madden sandals and seriously think these will go with everything.
White Shift Dress
Last, but not least I was in the market for a loose breezy, go-with-everything summer dress and this Summer Fling Dress by Sanctuary checks all the boxes.  This dress is perfect and and it's what I'm wearing in the picture above. It even has this subtle striping down the front that is oh so flattering.  (Size down, even the XS was roomy on me.)  

And that concludes this haul!  I would have to say my favorite item is the white dress from Sanctuary.  I think I will be wearing it tons this summer, especially in the Florida heat, and I love how comfortable it is.  I hope you guys enjoyed my Piperlime picks and hope you are having an absolutely amazing weekend.  Leave me a comment below letting me know your favorite spring purchase so far, and thanks for stopping by!!
xoxo Nicole
