It’s always fun to have a day (every once in a while) where nothing matters. You just enjoy the day for what is, take in the scenery, breathe and let go … and if you can do a little shopping!
This past Saturday, I visited Tanger Outlets/Foxwood Casinos in Connecticut and picked up a few different items (boyyyy, was I loving the sales!)
Btw| I won $40 at the Casino. I felt like a superstar! Lmao
Here are the things that I purchased:
There’s something sexy yet sophisticated about Button Up’s. These H&M Button Up’s cost $12.99 which drew me right in (usually, I see Button Up’s going for $20 and up) and lately, I’ve been trying to revamp my style. It’s not news that my style is very bohemian inspired but lately I’ve become drawn to the minimalist/chic look which reminds me of sultry yet ‘grown woman’ vibes.
I then saw these jeans and listen …. I loveeeeeee a good sale! I had been looking for a nice pair of black ripped jeans (and white ones) so when I saw these (and that price) I had to get it. As for the second pair of jeans, you really can’t go wrong with jeans that cost 10 bucks so I picked those up as well. When you’re a bit of a curvy girl, it’s hard to find jeans that compliment both your hips and waist but I find that H&M very rarely lets me down in that department.
Note: These jeans are a size 10 but my size varies with the style and cut of each pair of jeans. These two jeans had AMAZING stretch so size 10 was perfect and gave me some breathing room too.
I stopped by Bath & Body Works (who is having an amazing sale by the way!) and picked up a few fragrances, two candles and a some lotion. Let me tell you, those Pineapple Mango candles smell soooooo good!
Note| If you are interested in candles, fragrances, shower gels etc … the sale is 75% off. These items were originally 13 dollars and up and I ended up getting them for about 3-4 dollars.
I am lacking in the summer department so I decided to pick up a pair of shorts. American Eagle is another place that does me justice in the jeans department … however their prices aren’t always ‘broke blogger’ friendly. So, I was really happy that these shorts were 40% off, high waisted and with great stretch!
There’s nothing really to this shirt. I bought it because I thought it was cute lol.
Before leaving the outlet, we stopped in Charlotte Russe. I loved their clothing items and their prices but the quality of clothing wasn’t doing it for me so I opted out of purchasing anything in that department lol. However, along with that minimalist/chic look that I been loving lately, statement neck pieces are slowly but surely becoming my thing. Like I said the prices in CR are great so I snagged these for 5 dollars each.
Last, but certainly not least I picked a few things at my local TJ Maxx, yesterday. I have been redecorating my room and the sign “Choose Your Own Adventure” really stuck out to me so I had to purchase that. I’ve been printing out all of my pictures recently so I snagged a vintage picture frame as well. To finish off my purchase, I picked up 2 Indian made porcelain dishes.
I have a few more purchases to make to kick start my summer and the redecoration of my room but I think this was a good start. I hope you all enjoyed this mini haul ❤
Summer time is coming! Vacation time is near!
And I’m out of control, lol.
Recently I’ve been stocking up on a bunch of summer essentials ❤ and sandals have been high on that list.
Below are some of the new members to my shoe family. I got some great shoes and even better deals!
I needed some new neutral sandals and brown is always the first color on my list when I think of items that are versatile. While peeking around in Target, I came across these beautiful leather and strap up Mossimo sandals. For people that have wide feet (like myself), these sandals are perfect because they have a unique design that helps to give your feet a slimming effect. Oh! and that wide leather band isn’t squeezing your feet into oblivion – which is always good.
Price – $20.00
Ironically enough, I have never owned a pair of simple black sandals. I get so stuck on brown and tan colors that I neglect every other color. Lol. I definitely wanted to add black to my shoe collection and when I saw these on Asos, I had to get them. When it comes to shoes, I tend to be quite basic. However, these sandals also have a 3/4 inch platform so it gives it a little edge while still keeping true to my simplistic shoe style. Also if you are shopping on Asos, you get a student discount!
Price – $17.00
I’ve noticed that when people hear “Payless” they tend to start the judging game. I am not ashamed to say that some of my best shoe purchases (especially for summer sandals and wedges) have been from Payless. There are a few things I love about these sandals. First the color. If black is not something I usually get then you can only imagine how out there silver is for me! I also love the unique ankle straps – that is certainly something that I haven’t had in my closet so I was excited about this purchase. The only con with these shoes are the front straps. For wide foot gals like myself, it is a little tight but after wearing it a couple of times I am sure that it will strength to become more comfortable.
Original Price – $39.00 | Price I Paid – $14.00
These rhinestones make me feel like I’m back in 8th grade but something about these sandals screamed “Buy Me”. I love the double strap and the hippie vibe that the rope around the perimeter of the sandal is giving me. I also like the mini platform and the overall look of these sandals. Missguided is another online store that gives students a discount.
Original Price – $40.00 | Price I Paid – $17.00
Rounding it off with some simplicity, I also got these beautiful sandals from Missguided. I love these shoes because while an all white sandal is a first for me, its still simple simple simple! This is something I can pair with just about anything and I love it. My favorite part about these sandals is the lightweight feel of it. While it does feature a platform and one inch heel, it is extremely comfortable and so free feeling. Walking around the house in these, I literally forgot they were on my feet – I did not want to take them off. The only con with these shoes …. it’s white so I will have to be extremely careful with these babies.
Original Price – 40.00 | Price I Paid – $12.00
Summer hasn’t arrived yet so I still have time to get more .. but I hope you enjoyed this mini haul and potentially found some new places to get some inexpensive summer deals ❤
I have been dying to wear this outfit! I recently got these beautiful suede pants in the mail and was immediately thinking of way to rock it! The first thing that came to my mind was this suede olive green shirt/dress that I got from a boutique in Bay Ridge. I indecisively struggled between what shoes to wear before opting for these pointed toe snake skinesque heels. Finally I topped off my outfit with a thrifted Rugby snake skin clutch and face full of glam -check my highlight lol ❤
Accesories| My moms closet
So, sometime last week I was invited to a surprise gathering for a friend of mine. One of my new years resolutions for 2016 has been to start going more – so when I was invited I immediately headed to my closet and called two of my best friends to tag along. So without going into a thousand details, here is my outfit from that night!
