Here's what I wore to church yesterday...it was an outfit entirely made up of Anthro pieces--except for the jewelry (not sure I've ever done that before--maybe once or twice??):
-Floral Frappe Top-Anthropologie
-Easy Keeper Skirt-Anthropologie
-Slinking Frills Pumps-Anthropologie
-Necklace-J Crew Outlet
I've made a few purchases in the last few weeks I'm excited about. That being said, I decided to change my budget up a little this month. I knew I would take this budget business month by month when I started a few months ago. I knew some months would be better than others. This month...not so good. I've decided to go off a wish list for the rest of the month instead of solely going by a budget. I'm not doing this so I can go crazy and buy up everything I want or anything (well, maybe a little. Just Kidding...No!). After my Vegas trip I made a list of the things I really loved and wanted to add to my closet. It's a big list so I still have to be choosy. I'm trying to really choose pieces that I can create several outfits with and that can easily blend in with what I already own. I had initially intended to stick to my budget again this month but it's just one of those months...I'm failing miserably. I'll own up to it! Because of that, I'm switching to the "list" from here on out instead. If I can get a PA on the Monthly Meet-Up Pullover that'll help too so please go one sale!!! If it does go on sale I'll just use that money I get back and add it to my spending money this month. It's money already spent from February so if I get it back it's like free money to spend and go towards March right? Right. So basically this is one of those months where pretty things are making me feel happy. Hopefully next month I will do better. Ok, now that I got that out of the way (guilt-ridden and shamed) I can move on. =)
Here's what I've purchased in March so far:
BP "Berty" Sandals in Seafoam (Nordstrom)
I saw Kim post these on her blog (Anthroholic) last week and could not stop thinking about them for like 5 days straight. I was in love! At that point I just gave in and ordered them. I don't own shoes this color and I don't have any heels this height. My shoes are all either flats or 4" tall for the most part so these are a fun departure from the norm. They are super cute and versatile...they could go with skirts or jeans. I ordered a 1/2 size down (per the majority of the reviews) and they should fit perfect (I later tried on the black version in the store in a size 8 1/2 which I ordered and they fit great). I can't wait for them to arrive...any day now!
Xhilaration Sinead Peep-Toe Flats (Target)
I saw these when I was walking through Target one day and couldn't pass them up. I searched for a cute flat yellow shoe last summer and could never find the right shade of yellow so when I saw these, they had to be mine! For $19.99 they're a steal.
Maryam Tank (Anthropologie)
I have held out waiting for this thing to go on sale for forever and it's just not happening so before it is completely sold out everywhere (which it nearly already is) I tracked one down. I would be mad at myself if I didn't because it's a great layering piece and so versatile. I haven't even tried it on yet so who knows...I may not even like it...but if I do, it'll be a keeper.
J Crew Factory Printed Poplin Skirt--got this for 30% off.
I saw this reviewed on AppGal HERE and bolted to my factory outlets to try it on soon after. On me it ran big...I took it in a 0. I love it. It's the perfect spring/summer skirt to wear everyday or to dress it up a little to wear to church on Sunday.
And here's what's on my wish list for the rest of the month--of course I would only consider getting any of these if they went on sale:
Winter Beauty Pullover,
Winter Beauty Pullover,
The only other thing I would love to find is a great pair of really dark trouser jeans. I have a pair of trouser pants that I wore in Vegas but just didn't like the way they fit. They are too long and too lightweight...just not my favorites. I want a pair of actual denim trouser jeans this time around, not pants that look like trouser jeans.
Ok...there you have it. I'm super flawed, sorta obsessed with pretty things and love an Anthro sale. Guilty as charged. Hope you can forgive me! =)
Brad just dumped the "other girl"...sad.
I just read a few tips on what's on sale tonight...looks like a few things on my list might be!!! =)
Happy Sale Shopping (and budget busting--be careful).
