Field Game kind of day

Happy Monday everyone!!! It was over 80 degrees here today---in the middle of November! Who would have thought? And to think I was THIS close to packing away all the boys' summer clothes last weekend...hmmm.

So this morning I knew exactly what I was in the mood to wear...and here it is:

-V-neck Tee-J Crew (bought at the outlet but came from the retail store--no diamonds on the tag)
-Field Game Cardigan-Anthropologie
-Ultimate Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Blue Leopard print flats-Gap
-Small Open Circle Necklace-Shabby Apple
-Earrings-Kenneth Cole via Macy's
-Bracelet-Twisted Silver (gift from my friend Elise)

This cardigan is one of the first few things I ever bought from Anthropologie...I was late to the game and had never bought anything from there until earlier this year! I was hesitant to buy it as I wasn't sure it was really me, but now I'm so glad I did...I love it! I've paired it with other colors before, but honestly I really like the way it looks with just a cream colored tee. These shoes are the ones I picked up at Gap last week (for just $16--they were on sale and then I also got an extra 30% off with the Friends and Family promo) after I exchanged the same pair, just in a different color. I don't own any true blue colored shoes so this was a new color for me...I branched.

So it looks like there's gonna be a sale at Anthro tomorrow!!! I have my six "allowed" wish list items ready (although as of now I don't think any of them are on sale--boo!!!!) I now realize I forgot to put in a "2nd cuts clause" in my shopping break rules last week. I should have also mentioned that if there are items I've had on my LONG wish list that get 2nd cuts and are just too good a deal to pass up, I may be forced to bite (like $19.95 for a top or cardigan or something that used to be $100). Please, even shopping break rules don't apply to deals like that! Just saying. For the most part though, I'm just sticking to looking for deals on the 6 items I posted in my rules previously (except for the one item I called about today and ended up ordering because it was super hard to locate. It already hit sale a few weeks ago and I'm afraid it will be all gone before it makes 2nd cuts--which is when I originally had planned on picking it up. Yes, I cheated. There, I said it. Back on the bandwagon for me now. Not even gonna tell you what it was...you'll have to wait and see. =) So much for will power...geez. Baby steps....baby steps...I'm a work in progress).

Alrighty...off to watch Gossip Girl...my Monday night guilty pleasure. Have a good night!


  1. Love the field game cardi and I love how it looks with just a cream top. And it is a great first purchase from anthro and looks like it got you hooked! Can't wait to see what you got!

  2. I have that tee in the same color and also in charcoal. I LOVE them!

  3. I love how you styled that cardi - I almost bought it and now I'm regretting it - it's so cute!

  4. I just started buying from Anthro this year too... I always admired their clothes but thought they were too expensive. Then I discovered the sale section! I really love that cardigan and almost bought it.

    It is warm here too... does not feel like November!
