I'm bad..

My friend and I made a spur of the moment trip to the mall and ended up spending a little too much.  Can you say "tsk tsk"?!

The following were my purchases--

Loosened Shelby Blouses

I couldn't decide on which color I liked better so I purchased both.  I love the pop of color on both of them and I know I will get a lot of wear out of the these tops.  I especially love the way you can tie a bow in the front.  And in case you didn't notice, the yellow blouse has little lemon prints on them.  So cute!  I need to decide on which one I would like to keep since these tops are a little pricey ($58 each.  Which color would you choose?

The one sale purchase I made was the Rise & Shine Dress.  I didn't really pay much attention to it online, but thought it was adorable in person.  The sweetheart neckline is very flattering and the scarf at the waist gives it the unique finishing touch.  I'm still debating if I should keep though, it might get another price cut!

Have you made any recent Anthro purchases lately? :)

Comfort Clothes

Chambray Shirt - H&M
Dress - Gap
Wedges - Banana Republic
Necklace - Etsy - Purchase here

There are days when I look for comfort in clothes so I throw on a huge sweater, a pair of sweats and some Uggs.  Today, I decided to change up my "comfort clothes" by wearing my maxi dress topped off with my new loose fitted H&M chambray shirt (can you believe it was only $12.90?!)

Do you readers have a favorite outfit that is comfortable yet stylish at the same time? :)

Cardigan - Anthropologie's Coin Purse Cardigan
Pants - Anthropologie's Elevenses Ruffle Crop Pants - Similar here

The Coin Purse Cardigan is seriously the best $10 I've spent on a cardigan EVER!  It's so unique and I've already gotten so many compliments!  If you don't count the shoes, my whole outfit cost $20 - so crazy!

Hope you guys are enjoying your Sunday :)

Sale Haul

My haul list:
One of my proudest Anthro moments - being able to score this LiaMolly cardigan for $9.95!!  I received this beauty two days after I placed the order.  The sweater is aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.  I was worried that it might be too busy with all the patterns on the sweater, but my worries went away when I saw it.  I can't wait to wear it!

I scored this cute Old Navy dress for free!  Old Navy combined forces with Shazam (an IPhone app) and I won a coupon for a free dress.  The fit is perfectly flattering, I can see myself pairing it with a cardigan and a belt.  You can purchase it here - it's currently on sale for $15.

I was browsing the Kohl's website and stumbled upon the Lauren Conrad collection.  I fell head over heels for this dress so C ordered it for me.  It's a cute pleated cocktail dress with a belt - a perfect combination.  You can purchase this pretty dress here and you can find promotional codes for Kohls here.

 I purchased my 2nd pair of Target's Pearce Pumps.  They are by far the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.  I own heels from a broad spectrum of brands and nothing compares to these.  I think the main reason why these shoes are so comfortable is because they have built in cushion with rubber soles on the outside, which bend with your feet (kind of like tennis shoes).  And to add the icing on top of the cake, they are REAL leather for $29.99!

Have a good Thursday everyone, it's almost Friday!!

My favorite picks from Anthropologie and Target

I tried on the Plaited Brushstrokes Skirt and fell in love.  The name speaks for itself.  It feels like I'm wearing a piece of artwork.  The skirt is very well-made.  It is made of cotton and feels very sturdy.  Love it!

My friend and I are both in love with the Pinwheel Tank.  O-M-G it is the most flattering top that we've ever tried on at Anthropologie.  The front is v-neck, but the back has a square-ish neckline.  I normally don't like to wear dark/bright orange tops, but this is a definite exception.  

The collar on this top is subtly pleated.  It feels true to size as I am wearing a size 0, but I wouldn't mind trying a size 2 for a little extra room.  My friend and I made a pack to both buy this top when it goes on sale.  Twinsies!

The Anadyomene Cardigan is SUPER soft.  The cardi is made of cotton and spandex which gave it a little stretch.  The sweetheart neckline is very flattering, but a little high.  If I were to purchase this I'd probably get a small (I'm wearing a XS).

 I love drapey tops in general and this was no exception.  The Undersea Exploration Tee was extremely soft and I absolutely adored the different shades of green print on the tee.

The Westerly Wind tee was another drapey top that I love.  Keep in mind that it's sheer in the back so I would recommend wearing a tank under this.  I felt like I was kind of swimming in this, but yet for some reason I still really liked the top.  It's a little tight on the arms so I tried sizing up and it just looked way too overly drapey.  If you could deal with the sleeves being a little too tight, I'd recommend buying your normal size.  This top is currently on sale for 29.95 and I'm waiting for another price cut before I make the purchase.

For my last review, I leave you with a Target dress that I spotted in stores

The fabric itself was a little thin, but the cotton felt decent in quality.  Why do I love this dress?  It's so flattering and the polka dots!  I'm a sucker for polka dots. 

Hope all my reviews helped!

The skirt that almost got away..

Today's OOTD:

Shirt - Gap
Skirt - Gap for $12!
Tights - Gap for $5
Boots - Target - Purchase here

I cannot believe that I was able to score a skirt that I wanted months and months and months ago!  As soon as I saw it hanging on the rack, I knew it was meant for me!  And to top it off, I got it for $12.

The bold design on this skirt is absolutely gorgeous.  I love how the navy and red go together.  In case youre wondering, the Target boots are REALLY comfortable, the leather is soft, and the shoes maintain their shape no matter how many times you wear them.  They're very versatile - I've paired them with skinny jeans, dresses, skirts, etc.

Have you guys scored any good deals lately?  I would love to hear about them!!  :)

Look what C got me as an early month-sary present!  How friggin' adorably cute is that?!  Exactly what is a month-sary you ask?  It's similar to an anniversary, only you celebrate 12 times a year instead of 1.  I know it may seem silly, but it definitely keeps the spark alive!  What did I get him for our month-sary?  His favorite Old Navy corduroy pants for a whopping 6 dollars!

Speaking of corduroys, I scored the AG Stevie Cords from Anthropologie for $20.  They were originially $158, so I basically got them for over 80% off!  They are by far the softest corduroys I've ever worn!  I would so buy the grey, wine, and white colors, but I'm guessing they are all sold out now since it's such a steal!  I wore them out yesterday and they felt like fitted PJ pants.  No joke.  I definitely recommend them to everyone!

I scored Target's patent Pearce Pumps in DOVE!!  They were sold out online, but I was able to score them in stores.  They are by far, the most comfortable high heels I've ever owned.  They're cushioned inside and are super cute.  They're so shiny and chic.  My cousin purchased the patent camel color and when she tried them on, they made her look taller!  You can purchase them here for $29.95. 

             And last but not least, I leave you with a random pic--

Happy Sunday!  Time to eat a Hot Pocket for breakfast and enjoy the nice weather!
