Can't miss me!

Hi everyone!  It's been a busy week...lots going on!  Yesterday was a beautiful day outside here in the bay area.  We took advantage and spent three hours at the park with friends...so fun!  Today I'm pulling my boys out of school early so we can go greet my little brother at the airport when he comes home, and then my boys and hubby have a 4 day weekend to celebrate Memorial day.  I happen to have plans to take a little trip to Anthro tomorrow with my bestie to do some returns and try-ons...can't wait!  I still haven't posted all the reviews I did from my last Anthro trip...sorry, I'm such a slacker!  I may or may not get to that.  I'll have to combine them with the reviews I do tomorrow I guess.  I wish I could say I wasn't impressed by what I'm seeing at Anthro lately, but no luck.  My wish list continues to grow at a steady rate.  =)

I've been pretty lax about my spending this month, but I think I'll be going back on a budget in June.  Now that we've decided to buy a house I've gotta start thinking about all things house-related!  I have no problem with that, however...I'm really excited to take the time to try to decorate our new home (as long as we find one to buy)!!  I'm planning on going back to my $250 clothing/shoes budget for the month of June.  How about you?  What are your spending plans for the upcoming month?

On Sunday I wore the brightest piece of clothing in my closet to church...you truly couldn't miss me if you tried!


What I Wore
Happy Talk Dress-Shabby Apple (won in a contest!)
Poetic Justice "Feel the Rhythm Peep-toe Pumps-Nordstrom
Belt-Forever 21
Frutta Earrings-Anthropologie
Small Circle Necklace-Shabby Apple
Bracelets-J Crew Factory (blue) and Gap Factory (gold bangles)
Flower Bud Ring-J Crew

I warned you...I look like the sun! =)

Hope your week is going great!  

PS--Lots of sales going on this week...J Crew has 30% off their spring sale section right now (including the factory store where I picked these up in "Poppy" for only $33), the Nordstrom women and kids half-yearly sale is going on, the Anthro tag sale continued with another round of cuts on Tuesday...so many great deals!  I picked up a few sale goodies at Anthro this week including THIS comfy cardi and THIS fabulous tank in a few colorways.  I've been waiting for these to hit sale...totally stoked! =)  What deals have you scored lately?

  2. That dress makes me happy! You are right - so many great sales. I picked up another No. 2 Pencil skirt from J Crew and some jeans from Nordy's - too great of a sale to pass up!

    2. Thanks Kristine! And thanks for letting me know about those shorts...you're so sweet to think of me! I was able to score a NWT pair of the white AG Bermudas on eBay last week for $30!! Love them! I'm now on the hunt for a good deal on a dark denim pair!! Again, thanks for thinking of me!!

  5. You got a great deal on the sandals. To buy them online with the discount I'll end up paying almost $48. However, they really are too cute to pass on.

  7. I haven't allowed myself to look at Anthro because I've ordered my first Stitchfix package and it should be arriving next week! :o) Can't wait. But, I did hit up a local Goodwill and hit the jackpot; a Ralph by Ralph Lauren tweed blazer ($5), a NY&Co maxi skirt ($3.75), and a Tommy Hilfiger shirt dress ($3.75) = $13.87!!!
