What a fun weekend we've had! Friday night my husband and I went out with the other Oral Surgery residents to Ruth's Chris (YUM!!!) and then last night we went out with our good friends one last time before they PCS to Japan...one of the worst parts of the military is losing friends to PCS's. Sad. All the fun this weekend gave me good reason to get all dressed up a few times which of course, I love to do!
First up though, here are a few items I mentioned before that I grabbed at my local J Crew Outlet last week...just in case anyone is wondering what they have there right now:
Lightweight heather-grey sweatshirt:
I'm in LOVE with this! It seems so simple but it's so comfortable and I can already tell I'll be reaching for it a lot. It's basically a fitted sweatshirt, which is sooo much more flattering than the typical kind.
Maya Twist cardigan (pretty much a replica of J Crew's retail version from last season):
I look so tired here because it was late when I snapped it...I was so ready for bed! I saw this cardigan in this color and a light-beigy/pink flesh color...I think there may have been another color too...can't remember. I went back and forth but decided this fit into my wardrobe better. I love the gather in the buttons on this one...it looks so cute buttoned--which I hardly ever do with cardigans, oddly enough!
I actually wore it on our date Friday night...here's the whole look:
-Maya Twist Cardigan-J Crew Outlet
-White Floral tank-Forever 21
-Cropped pants-LOFT (Spring 2010)
-BP Stella Wedge sandals-Nordstrom
-Crystal Milano Bracelet-J Crew
-Necklace-gifted from my husband a few years ago-from Macy's
Onto Saturday...I lounged around all day and then finally changed into this when it was time to go:
-Floral print tank-Old Navy(this color sold out online-check in stores)
-Matchstick jeans-J Crew Outlet
-Cardigan-LOFT (Spring 2010)
-Sandals-Banana Republic Outlet (Spring 2010)
Don't look at how awful my hair looks in this picture...my bangs were just falling in a pile and I'm not quite sure what's going on! This was the first time I'd pulled out my floral tank and I have to say it's a really fun top! I loved the colors and when paired with the white jeans the colors popped even more. I took this top in an XS but if you have anything up top, you're gonna want to go TTS for that (I go XS or Small in tops at Old Navy usually--for reference).
Lastly, today for church I finally got to wear my new Shabby Apple dress...it looks like a dress Anthro had this year except it has sleeves. I had to have the top altered because it was seriously made for large busted people...not me. I paired it with my new yellow Seychelles yellow pumps...but think I'll pair it with my red pumps next time to change it up...
-Sheep Meadow Dress-Shabby Apple (bought a $100 gift certificate for just $40 from groupon.com for Shabby Apple which got me this dress at almost 60% off!!!)
-Seychelles Password Pumps-Nordstrom
-Uptown Bracelet-Twisted Silver--gifted from a friend
-Gold small circle necklace-Shabby Apple
I totally just forgot to put earrings on today...I seriously felt naked! I'm so used to wearing them. This dress is a fun one...hoping to get lots of use out of it before it gets too cold.
So that's my weekend in a fashion nutshell. I'm eagerly awaiting LOFT's sale to start Tuesday...do you have your eye on anything in particular?? I'm also looking around for a good pair of brown riding boots for the fall/winter that won't break the bank.
A few random things...
I went into Old Navy to get a price adjustment on a few pairs of jeans I got my 6 year old a few days before (because now all the kids jeans are just $10) and as I walked into the store there was a giant table of women's skinny jeans also on sale for just $15 each. I HAD to try them on! I ended getting a few because A) they were actually pretty cute on and B) $15! Hello! I got them home and tried them on again...I think they're pretty decent jeans for $15 really...can't beat it. I ended up getting the regular length instead of short which surprised me. I think the pairs I bought were called "The Flirt Super Skinny" style...I'm not seeing them online. Maybe they're really just the "The Flirt Skinny" style and the sign on the table was wrong...who knows. I'm still waiting for my Banana Republic skinnies to arrive...I SOOO hope they fit good!
I got an email today from my parents who are vacationing in London right now...they told me they spent some time in Harrods yesterday and found some fun stuff...oh, how I wish!!! I hear that place is amazing!!! =)
Well, I'm off to watch some TV and fold some laundry before bed...I'll be up and at 'em early tomorrow morning. Monday mornings are running days for me.
Happy start of a new week!!
