Spring Retail Therapy

Checking in with a second post here! Not exactly on a roll but in my defense, finals are (finally) over....

This is how exams make me feel immediately after.
So what does a newly liberated student do with the unusual free time? Shop of course!
I basically wear variations of black and grey (black and grey, grey and black, etc.) so I decided to get in the spring spirit and pick up some colorful wardrobe items.

This pairing looks very Katy Perry..
One of the first things I wanted to find was a good pair of high waisted shorts. You'd think this would be easy to find, but not always the case. These from Urban Outfitters were a great bright blue, high waisted, and long enough to not make me look like I'm "working". Yes please. I threw in my new H&M bikini in the shot's rose gold. And gorgeous. Somehow it made it into all my shots..

More BDG denim! And the bikini bottom for an artsy touch.
 Now these pants are the spring/summer brights I was referencing above. I don't know what it is about this orange-y, persimmon shade, but I love it and think it will look even better with a tan perhaps. Not to mention, these jeans are lightweight, high waisted (sensing a trend?) and the softest I've ever felt...highly recommend.
Attack of the rose gold trend!
And here it is (again)...the piece de resistance of my haul. H&M has always been on my good list, but this year they are bringing out some really chic swimsuits. From the rose gold hardware to the triangles; I will be rocking this all summer no doubt. I threw in a rose gold bangle I found there for only $5.95 for good measure ;)

Everyone likes a basic striped tee, right? This one has a shirttail hem (shorter in front, longer in back).

Lastly we have FLATFORMS! I finally scouted them out at my H&M after toying with ordering a pair off Asos for months...until they were sold out, of course. I don't know what it is about them that I like...they are very comfortable and a very manageable heel (about 2.5 inches). 
I also picked up an Essie polish in Cute as a Button. The photo is making it look very orange, but in reality it's more of a peachy pink with some red in it. Goes quite nicely with the bright trend me thinks :)

Well that's all for now, let me know your latest spring buys!
