My recent purchases

I'm totally into nail polish right now so I ordered the "What's With the Cattitude?" polish.  Isn't the baby blue color absolutely perfect for spring?  :)

The next thing I scored was a pop-up on my Anthro wishlist - the Beaded Englatine Cardigan.  It was on sale for $19.95!  I love the color and the embroidery, but I'm debating if I should return it since it's a tinsy bit itchy.

I also scored Anthropologie's Elevenses Ruffle Crop Pants for wait for it.. $9.95!  At first I was hesitant about the ruffles, but when I tried them on, it looked really cute, especially with heels.

Have you guys scored any good deals lately? :)

The Friday Dance

Friday's OOTD

Blazer - Anthropologie ($29.95!!) - Purchase the blue version here
Tank top - Anthropologie ($9.95!!) - One More Time Tank
Skirt - H&M - Purchase similar here
Shoes - Banana Republic - Purchase similar here
Bag - H&M

I normally dislike wearing blazers  because they feel so restrictive, but the Dynamism Dolman Jacket definitely proved me wrong.  I purchased this in a size 0 and the sizing was true to size with just a little extra room for movement.

The blazer felt silky even though it's actually polyester.  I love the zigzag textures.  It adds such a unique touch to what would have been a plain blazer.

And last but not least, I leave you with my Happy Friday Dance!

Ooh darling 'cause you'll always be my baby

Spaghetti Strap Tank - Forever 21 - Purchase here
Cardigan - Nordstrom - Purchase here
Skirt - Anthropologie
Shoes - Banana Republic

I normally don't wear pink, but this skirt was a total exception - as soon as I saw it hanging on the rack, I knew I had to have it.  It's not everyday you find watermelon prints on a skirt!

Target is having a buy 1 pair of shoes get the 2nd pair half off.  I'm tempted to get these, these, and/or possibly these.  How cute are those pumps?  You can buy two pairs for under $50!  I'll definitely do a review if I decide to purchase them.

Hope you all are enjoying the rest of your weekend!

It's a Caranday type of day

After reading a few fashion blogs, I was inspired to wear my Caranday dress today.  This dress was one of the full price Anthro purchases and I definitely don't regret it.

Blooming Lattice Cardigan - Anthropologie
Caranday Dress - Anthropologie
Shoes - Banana Republic

Today was such a beautiful day - breezy and in the 60s.  My day consisted of making mac&cheese for breakfast, taking multiple naps, and taking random pics. :)

A boy and I trying to make a <3.  His arms are too long.  Or maybe mine are too short.  Haha :P

Polka Dots and Stripes = Love, Love, Love

Silk shirt - Gap
Scallop Dots Skirt - Anthropologie
Cardigan - JCrew
Shoes - Urban Outfitters

I love the bold colors in today's outfit.  I normally wear this skirt and cardi with white tank top under, but today I decided to change it up!  The red blouse definitely gave that extra pop to the entire outfit.

A-Bit-Unruly Top
I absolutely ADORE everything about this top.  The fabric is extremely soft and the neckline is so unique.

I tried the top with the Drawing Parallels Skirt and was extremely happy with how it turned out.  I was so close to buying the entire outfit right then and there (both items are currently at full price.. $48 + $68 = I need to think about it).  I feel like this outfit is perfect for spring as well as a great transition to summer - it's just so light and airy!

The Antilles blouse definitely caught my eye.  The vibrant turquoise was simply gorgeous.  My one gripe about the blouse was that it runs HUGE. 
I tried it with the skirt and it ended up not looking too baggy.  Overall, I loved the style, the color, but not the sizing. 

The Loblolly Pullover was cute in theory, but when I tried it on, it was soooo baggy!  It might've been because I tried on a small (the XS wasn't available).  I might give it another try if the XS pops up in stores.
Despite the bagginess, the buttons on the shoulders were so cute!
I hope you had as much fun reading these reviews as I had writing them! 
Have a good night!

Dressing up for Spring

Spring is coming and its time to bring out the spring clothes! This is what I'm planning to wear --

I love sunny days!

Shirtdress - Aqua - Bloomingdales
Boots - Steve Madden - Purchase here
Checkerboard Belt - Anthropologie - Buy similar here

Now onto my current purchases..

I absolutely love my black motif Bianka Blouse. It was sold out for the longest time and somehow made a comeback during the sale. It's quite versatile - I've paired it with my Forever21 jeans and my Target boots and I've also worn it with a high waisted skirt. I definitely recommend this top! I'm not quite sure of the name of the apron, but I was able to score it for $7.95 - can't wait to use it when I bake cupcakes.

Don't you guys get excited when you score Anthro things at super low prices? :)
