          Pastels are the quintessential colors of spring.  I am still on the lookout for the perfect pastel two-piece set, but I found the cutest handbags last month and a few other goodies that I'm so excited to share them with all of you!

        How adorable is this lavender purse nestled within the foliage?  I think the structured style of this bag contrasts nicely with the tropical vibes of the natural bamboo handle.  I purchased this beauty at T.J. Maxx for an amazing deal of $25!  So if you would like to add this one to your handbag collection, be sure to check out your T.J. Maxx.  There's a chance that you'll be able to snag this awesome purse.

          These white pointed mules caught my eye as I stood in line to check out at Forever 21.  I ran over to the shelf where all the shoes were displayed and grabbed them in my size before I lost my place at the end of the long checkout line.  Sometimes those last minute "throw in your basket" kinda purchases are the best ones, right?  I remember seeing lots of different brands come out with their version of the pointed mules and I just couldn't get myself to purchase them for $100 and up.  Knowing these were a trendy item, I wanted to try them out first and experiment by styling them with different pieces before making the decision to invest in a more expensive pair.  Let me tell you, these mules are super cute and surprisingly comfortable, so I am not sure if I will invest in another pair.  I'm quite satisfied with these.  I just featured them in my latest outfit post, Little White Lines.  What do you think of them?

         Yes, this light blue purse looks very similar to the Chloe Nile bracelet bag.  I often struggle with whether or not to support the reproduction of designer brands.  Designers put in a lot of thought and creativity behind each of their high-end designs, so it seems wrong for other companies to just alter the design a bit and manufacture and sell it for a fraction of the price.  However, I do love the fact that I don't have to spend a ton of money to have chic accessories because I purchased this bag from Ross for $18 instead of paying $1,690 for the authentic Chloe version.  Putting that consumer guilt aside, I really love this purse, especially the metal ring handle.  If you follow my blog, you'll definitely see this one featured in a future outfit post!

       Now, if you saw my 4 Year Blogiversary post, this favorite will look familiar to you.  oNecklace was so kind to gift me with this gold-tone necklace of my blog's logo in honor of Elizabeth, Marie, and Me's four year anniversary.  I've worn it countless times and I know I'll be wearing it for years to come!  Not only is it beautiful, it holds such precious memories and it represents all the love, creativity, and hard work that I've invested in my blog over the years.  This necklace will forever be priceless to me.   

        You know that I've saved the best for last because I always do.  Drumroll, please . . .  I purchased this pair of vintage Sonia Rykiel clip-on earrings, which was in brand new condition and original tags, for $1!  It's one of the best vintage treasures I have ever found.  I cannot wait to share and style these earrings and all of the other vintage jewelry pieces I found that same day, so stay tuned!  
        I truly hope you enjoyed this favorites post.  Be sure to write in the comments below what items you loved in the month of April because I would love to know!  As always, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
