Warm Weather Finally!!! Plus some more F21 shopping and Anthro Sale Scores

Hi all! The week is moving right's already almost Friday! My son turned in his last homework assignment of the year this morning (YAY!!!) so summer vacation is almost here! The past few days have been so gorgeous outside...FINALLY!!! We've been enjoying some much needed sunshine and I even got a little sunburned after being at the park yesterday for a few hours. The nice weather has allowed me to pull out my short sleeves once again, which has been a nice change. Here's what I wore the past 2 days:


-Tank-Old Navy
-Cardigan-Gap Outlet
-Crossroads Belt-Anthropologie
-Presta Wedge Sandals-Target
-Earrings-NY & Co.
-Bracelet-Stella & Dot
-Ring-Banana Republic


-Pleated Ruffle T-Shirt-Gap
-Tank-Old Navy
-Minnie Crops-J Crew Factory version
-BP "Tee" Sandal-Nordstrom
-Necklace-c/o Wish Design Shop
-Ring-Banana Republic

So you can see yesterday's picture was taken in a dressing room...since my girlfriend is still here in town visiting from Japan, her, another friend and I decided to take one last little trip to the mall together without kids. We went and searched around Forever 21 for an hour or so after meeting up at Starbucks for a treat(yes, I was just at F21 last week but that store is so always miss that's where my friend from Japan wanted to F21's in Misawa). I managed to find a few more fun things to bring home...a few striped T's that I can't seem to find online, and another cute top and cardigan. I created this set using the top and cardigan that I think will be cute together:

Forever21 floral top, $23
Gathered skirt, $40
Seychelles pewter sandals, $95
FOSSIL flower necklace, $34
Cara Accessories bangle bracelet, $38
Forever21 sunglasses, $20

So how did everyone feel about this week's Anthro sale? I was overall disappointed yet again (none of my high up wish list items hit sale except a set of bracelets), but did decide to get a few more things regardless. I was also able to get price adjustments on my Linear Landscape Maxi and my First Light Skirt which was nice. I also decided to re-buy the Retro Rose cardigan after it got an additional 25% off (I feel better about that price point) and I re-bought the Bright Future Top with the additional 25% off as well since it's still sitting in my closet with the tag on it. The other things I grabbed up were the Looped Stack cardi (older sale item but at $38 I couldn't pass it up), the Ackee Skirt (which I've been waiting to hit 2nd cuts but with an extra 25% off I bit) and the Strung Palms Bracelets (the set with the turquoise and red bangles). All in all I got some great deals considering all the price adjustments I got so I'm pretty happy. All the PA's and money I saved by re-buying the Bright Future Top just about covered the cost of the Ackee Skirt so that was great!

Today is a day of running around...I took my little boys out to donuts this morning for breakfast to bribe them to be nice while we run all our errands. I have dry cleaning to pick up, gotta stop by the hospital to get something, need to run to Target to pick up a few things, the older boys have Taekwondo tonight...geez...I better get going!

Hope you all have a great day today!


  1. Sounds like you have a busy day ahead of you! Glad the weather has finally warmed is June after all :)

  2. And summer begins with the kids! Yay! You look amazing in yellow - not many people can pull that off! Nice finds on the sale ... I picked up the First Light Skirt (you enabled me on that one!) and the Go Anywhere Skirt ...
    Nice to see we are finally having sun in the Bay area - we have been drowning! I broke out the Ardennes skirt in my OOTD!

  3. Love the yellow/purple color bright and cheery!

  4. Isn't is nice when you can get a PA on past purchases?? I'm the same way and always put the $$ towards more stuff!! You look so cute, I'm loving that top from Gap!

  5. I love when I get a PA since it does not work out too often! You look so pretty in both OOTD's!:)

  6. Welcome to summer! I'm still hemming and hawing over the striped linear maxi...they still have some in my size in store, but... I wish my friends here was as amped about shopping as yours are! How fun! and congrats on all the PA's! Looking fresh and lovely in that purple skirt!

  7. Oh, you got the Ackee skirt! I am in love with that skirt and can't wait to see it on you. I LOVE the purple skirt in your outfit photo, it's such a beautiful colour for summer!

  8. I think I need a donut. I keep seeing that word in my life, lots in the past 3 days. Maybe I'll make it happen tomorrow. Nothing on my wishlist went on sale, but you know how it goes. I re-ordered something to get the lower price and went to $150 for the free shipping. Of course the re-order didn't ship. *lol* Then I visited the store, which was cool because I got to try on things I ordered online. The drawing parallels skirt will go back in purple, but the green is great. I didn't try it on, but got a chance to check colors. You're wearing a similar, beautiful shade in outfit#1. I like that on you!

  9. okay i want both of your outfits. YOU DRESS SO CUTE!!!!!!!!
