SPRING FASHION HAUL
Like I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been wanting to go spring clothes shopping for awhile now and this past weekend I finally got the chance to go. It worked out perfectly because the stores I visited were having some really good sales. I think I only purchased two full price items. I wanted to share some of the items I scored with you! Hope you enjoy!
The first place I checked out was JCPenney’s shoe sale. They had a bunch of fall boots on sale and I used my rewards card plus a ten dollars off coupon, so I ended up getting these Liz Claiborne boots for around $4! You seriously cannot beat that. Even though I usually only wear boots in the fall, these are made out of light weight material so I can get away with wearing them this spring. I love over the knee boots and these are no exceptions. They fit perfectly and can be worn with jeans, leggings, a dress, you name it.
The next store I visited was American Eagle. They had a ton of boho, Coachella inspired clothes that I fell in love with. Here are a few of the pieces I picked up.
I love the open shoulder on this dress. I also love the pattern and how flowy it is. The material is light weight and comfortable to wear. I even tried it on backward, keeping the button undone and wearing it as a v-neck and I love the way that looks too. I got this dress in store on sale for $24.98, but online it is full price at $49.95. So I would definitely check the store nearest to you before ordering online!
This is another really cute flowy dress that my mom picked up at an American Eagle in Florida for me. It can be worn during the spring with a jean jacket or in the summer on its own. I also really love this pattern. She got it on sale for $15.98 but it can be found online for $39.95.
AEO Military Shirt Dress
This is another dress that my mom picked up for me. I am obsessed with anything olive at the moment, so of course I love this military green colored dress. She got this dress for $23.98 I couldn’t find this exact one online, but I found a very similar one here. It is $59.95 online.
I love to wear flannels year round. The bright colors of this one give it a spring/summer vibe. I thought it would look really cute tossed over a white tank or v-neck, or even tied around the waist with a pair of jeans. This one is on sale for $19.99 online right now.
My favorite piece from American Eagle definitely has to be this blue Kimono. It’s different than anything else I own and I’m so excited to wear it. I think it would look really cute over a white dress, or jean shorts and a white top. The design on the back is so beautiful and I’m so happy I picked it up. It is $19.95 online right now.
My mom was with me on this shopping trip and as we were exiting American Eagle, something caught her eye. Aeropostale was having a 60% off the entire store sale. First of all, my mom lives for sales and coupons. Secondly, I think part of her wishes I was still in grade school and that I still shopped at Aero. Against my will, she dragged me into the huge sale. I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple really cute things that were on sale. As much as I hate to admit that I shopped at a store I haven’t stepped foot in since about seventh grade . . . I can’t deny the fact that I got a couple of really cute pieces there.
A button up white blouse is a wardrobe staple in my opinion. It can be dressed up or dressed down, and can be worn on almost any occasion. This one is so soft and comfortable. I got it for $11.87. They don’t have white as a color option online, but they have a few other options to choose from.
The pattern of this tank caught my attention right off. It’s really cute and not too over the top. The material is light and flowy so it will be perfect to wear on those hot summer days. I also like how it is longer in the back so I could wear it with leggings as well. This is currently on sale for $11.87.
The next two items I bought to wear together. I really loved the pattern of the shorts and I thought the crochet detail on the tank was adorable as well. The shirt is $10.60 and the shorts are $17.80. I love that they can be worn separately too.
I picked up this last top because this maroon/burgundy color is another one of my favorites to wear year round. This is another piece that can be dressed up with a statement necklace and white jeans or dressed down with blue jeans and a pair of sandals or flats. This top is $9.87.
The next store I went to was Express.
I picked up this shirt because I thought it would be perfect to wear to work. I also picked up a few necklaces on this trip so I wanted a plain shirt that I could wear all of them with. I also really like the slits in this shirt because they make it a little different than just a plain gray t-shirt. This shirt was $29.90.
Just like the white button up shirt, I think a white v-neck is another wardrobe staple. It can be worn with so many different things, so I wanted to get a really comfortable, quality t-shirt that I knew would last awhile. Of course, the first time I wore it, I spilled coffee on myself . . . and then I remembered why I don’t buy white clothes. Next time I will have to be more careful!
The last few items I purchased were some necklaces. These first two I got from Express. I’ve been loving rose gold jewelry lately and I fell in love with these two pieces.
The other two I got are statement necklaces. The first one is from JCPenney’s and is $28. The second one is from Icing and it is now on sale for $5. I couldn’t find the exact necklace online, but they are available in store.
Mint & Gold Beveled Stone Statement Necklace
The last spring item I ordered but haven’t received yet is this Kate Spade purse. I think this color is perfect for the warmer months and I have been wanting it for awhile now. Today I got an email saying that the purses in this bright papaya color are all on sale for 50% off and I couldn’t resist. It is free shipping and free returns so I knew if I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would, I could send it back. I am so excited to get it and try it out! If you love this color as much as I do, check out the sale because it ends today!
