My Shopping Mission

First of all I hope you all had a fab Easter weekend (and if you don't celebrate, just a fab weekend!).  If you read my post on Friday or follow me on Twitter, you'll notice I talked about a little shopping mission.  I haven't had much extra money for shopping lately but I decided I really wanted to add some spring clothes to my wardrobe and I also wanted some new clothes for my trip.
So, on Friday I set out on a mission:  $150 budget/6 Items/10 Stores

Things I was looking for:
White jeans/pants
Yellow jeans
Summer blazer
New Dress (lace, striped, or just springy in general)
Pink pants

Stores on my list:

New York & Co.
TJ Maxx
JC Penny
Ann Taylor Factory Store
Forever 21
Gap Factory Store
I didn't make it to Target, Kohl's, JC Penny or Marshall's but I did go by Old Navy.

Here's what I ended up with!

New York & Co.

Old Navy

Forever 21

Ann Taylor Factory Store

Gap Factory Store

So I was definitely missing the summer blazer, white jeans, yellow jeans and sandals but I couldn't resist the gingham skirt, the shoes are kind of like sandals, and the yellow sweater kind of replaces the lack of yellow jeans.  I went over my budget by $15 so total I spent $165 but I got some pretty good stuff!  Can't wait to show you all how I'll be styling it.

  1. I ordered that one shoulder dress from new york and company and I love it!! When I tried it on my husband walked into the room and said "That dress is awesome" haha. I adore that gingham skirt - I haven't been into a Gap in awhile, I might have to go soon! Thanks for sharing your finds. :)

    1. That dress is probably one of my favorite purchases from this shopping trip! I want to wear it ALL THE TIME! And it's great because you can layer sweaters or shirts over it and make it more of a skirt if you want. Thanks for checking out my blog!
