Let's Go Shopping!

Hello again, Lovely!

A couple months ago I met up with one of my best friends for a shopping morning. Good thing about shopping in the morning is that you get the stores pretty much to yourself. I splurged just a bit in just three different stores and I thought I'd share that with you!

First store we went too was Macy's. I don't shop too much at Macy's because it can get a bit expensive but I swear my friend has shopping luck. She always finds things either on sale or finds a way to get percentage off of it. First thing I picked up was Jessica Simpson Super Skinny Ultimate Stretch black pants. Unfortunately, these were not on sale. I bought another pair of skinnies that fit more into a thick legging category. These are from the brand Tinseltown Denim Couture. The reason I bought these was because several years ago I went to Puerto Rico to visit some family. We went shopping and to my surprise they had a Zara! They don't have Zara in my state so I was really excited to be able to shop there. I had a hard time finding those thick legging type of pants that had leather on either the front or the sides but I found it right away when shopping at Zara and those became my favorite pair of "fancy" pants. (I giggled too while writing "fancy pants".) Anyways, fast forward to today those pants no longer fit me so when I went to Macy's and saw these I knew I just had to grab a pair! Thankfully for me they were on sale!

(I did have to play with the exposure on this photo a bit because it came out much brighter on camera)

My friend Jenn had spotted this simple blue shirt that at first I wasn't too sure on but it's one of those that you just have to try on and make your final decision. I'm not even sure on what type of material it is. I tried it on anyways and to my surprise it actually didn't look that bad! It went really well with the leggings and I'm so ready to pair it with my leather jacket! I also got this beautiful navy blue stripped peplum shirt. I love me peplum style shirts (even skirts or pants!) but this one had extra material on the sides. It's a simple yet beautiful shirt and it's one of my favorite purchases. Finally on our way out of Macy's we spotted two of the most gorgeous light weight jackets you've ever seen! She bought a beautiful pink blazer type jacket it was short in the back and tappered off to a point at the front with this really cool design at the back. Mine was a bit more simple but it was a lovely maroon color and I just couldn't walk away without it. My friend does have it with her at the moment so I'll just insert a picture here if I can find it on the Macy's website.

The next store I went into was Garage. I'm pretty sure it's a Canadian store that just recently made it's way into the U.S. They have super cute things in there as well but I seemed to get really picky with what I bought when I was in there so all I ended up getting was this printed "ballerina" shirt. Now I have a little story behind this one. I saw a shirt pretty much exactly like this one in the beginning of the store with other colors and patterns along with it. I fell in love with the floral print so I held onto it while I continued shopping. (I clearly didn't mind it was $15!) I made my way into the sales side and what do I find but non other than the EXACT same shirt for - wait for this.. - $5!!!! Whhhaat!? I tried them both on and they both had the same fit! So of course I went for the 5 buck one! What an absolute steal. I also grabbed a pack of those cute little elastics for my hair.

The last store that I was able to go a little crazy in was Charlotte Russe. I really wanted to go to this one because the Charlotte Russe near me closed so I had to drive pretty far just to go to this one. I was in a bit of a rush by the time I got into this store because I had to go to work that day also. I'll start with the pants. I bought two of these really cute high waisted skinnies. I thought they were super cute and super comfortable so I grabbed two! One in grey and one in a military green color. Good thing about buying two of them was get one buy one for... $12.50! These pants originally cost $32.99 ;) Certainly can't complain! The last two items I bought were these two dresses. The first one I saw I thought was really simple and sweet. It's definitely my kind of style. It's a navy blue with a stripped skirt attached. It also has a little peek-a-boo cut out in the back that gave it a cute little touch. I love it. On the other side of the spectrum from the blue one, I got a nude little number! Nude's are my favorite colors to go for in clothing and makeup so I knew I'd be walking out with this one when I found it! It's fully lace and the length is just beautiful. It's a classic dress and I was already thinking of what to pair it with when I bought it! Looove.

The next thing is this beautiful little Kensie bag. I didn't buy this bag, my friend actually just randomly bought it for me (Thank you if you're reading this! You're the best!) She knows me so well because it's the cutest thing I've ever seen! I'll be using it as my makeup bag so you'll be seeing it again in a future post!

So that was it! I was really pleased with everything that I got and a lot of it for a good price. I was in need of a shopping spree. Just want to throw in a mini disclaimer: I'm not making this to brag, it's just a haul in blog post form. I've never done a post like this so I thought it would be nice to show you.
