Hi all! Hope your weeks started off good...we had a rough start that included a screaming 20 month old from 2am-6am Monday morning. No worries...we're on the road to recovery. Poor thing has a double ear infection and is now on antibiotics. Poor mom is still getting caught up on sleep. =)
So how about that sale today?!!! Did you score anything? I was more excited about the price adjustments I got than anything...I got a PA on my Monthly Meet-Up Pullover and a Soldierly Sparkle Tee (love my pink one so much that I found one in ivory too). I also still had the tags on my Maryam tank so I tracked another down at sale price and will be returning the other. I was SUPER tempted by the Happy Morning Sweater but at $90 I just can't bite...still too steep. I'll be keeping my eye out for second cuts on that for sure. I did pick up a little something for my sis-in-law who has a birthday next week and after searching high and low for a Field Skirt (that hit second cuts--now $19.95) in the gold color I came up empty handed but did manage to find the grey motif in my size so that is on it's way to me. For $19.95 you really can't go wrong.
Since I was feeling so great about all my PA's I wandered on over to Nordstrom's site after getting their email this morning about today being TOMS' "One day without shoes event". For every pair of TOMS shoes purchased, one pair is given to a child in need. Although I didn't go without wearing shoes today like the "event" encouraged, I figured I could do my part by buying some TOMS! See how supportive I am?! =) I have actually been interested in trying a pair of TOMS on for a while now...after I saw my cousin wearing them and hearing how much she loved them I figured I should give them a try. I had heard conflicting reports on comfort so I wanted to see for myself. I tried on an 8 1/2 and a 9 in the store over the weekend and found the 8 1/2 to fit much better. I would say to go down a 1/2 size from your normal flat shoe size based on that. I thought they felt great and would be a good comfy shoe to have. The store didn't have the color I wanted so I decided to order online eventually. The email this morning this morning was a reminder so I went ahead and got them. They're super cute!!! I wanted to get a color that was pretty neutral that could go with anything so I went with the Classic Glitter Slip-ons in Nude. They have just a bit of sparkle and texture to liven up an outfit (to actually see the sparkle click on the link and zoom in in the product page).
Are you a fan of TOMS? Have you tried them? Do you wear them?
While on the website I wanted to see what they had in the way of short-sleeve shirts (I'm kind of on a short-sleeve shirt kick right now--can you tell??). It's pretty much Dolman Sleeves or go home these days on most sites...Nordstrom is no exception. I found THIS and thought I'd give it a try:
I'll let you know how it goes. Any purchase you make at Nordstrom right now that includes a pair of shoes is shipped free so I figured, why not throw something else in? Gotta take advantage!
We are on week 2 of spring break and I'm loving every minute! Today we went to Fairytale Town with friends (a small themed park based on Fairy tales...I went to the same park as a kid so it's fun to now take my own kids) and the kids had a blast. The weather was PERFECT! Tomorrow we're headed to my parents' house to visit and have a little sleepover...the boys can't wait! I've been enjoying dressing in more spring-like outfits these past few weeks.....here's a few outfits I haven't posted yet..
-Garden Rows Top-Anthropologie
-Bootcut Jeans-Banana Republic Outlet
-Skinny Jeans-American Eagle
-Wedge Sandals-Old Navy
I'm hoping for a good night's sleep tonight so I'm off to bed...have a happy Wednesday! =)
