Shopping Splurges & Deals

What a beautiful Sunday morning!!
Adorable mug for $5 at Lush Fashion Lounge - They always have great clearance items!!
I meant to get this post out a little earlier this week, and then yesterday but I had so many things to get done for the baby shower that I hosted for my friend Camille over at The Cocooners yesterday afternoon.  Next week, look forward to recipe overload since I made some very delicious treats for the shower – sweet & savory!  For today, I wanted to share some of the deals that I got last weekend with you!  I am always looking for a good deal, mainly because I’d be broke if I didn’t, with my addiction to shopping!  I love to shop online and in stores, typically more so in stores if I don’t know the fit of the brand.  These are mostly all in store finds.  A good amount was from Old Navy – which I love.  Old Navy just seems to have cheaper items and not necessarily cheaper quality.  I am currently losing weight and spending loads of money on nicer clothes, not knowing if they will fit next month, just isn’t something I’d like to do!  **I apologize in advance for the lower quality/resolution of the pics.  I am using my wonderful iPhone and I do not currently have a great mirror for selfies!!**
Swing dress, animal print wedges, Kendra Scott earrings, Kendra Scott necklace, James Avery ring, & watch.
This dress from Old Navy is insanely comfy, soft, and light!  I actually wore this dress paired with my fav animal print wedges to the shower yesterday!  Animal print is a strong love of mine and I love pairing it with anything I can – currently in the market for a large blanket scarf with this print!  My Kendra Scott Alexandra earrings in Cobalt are one of my favorites that I scored from NM Last Call for under $30 with free shipping!  I always recommend signing up for email lists when you can because stores will send out some crazy good flash sales!  The gorgeous KS Bridgete necklace was my hostess gift from Camille.  She knows I love Kendra Scott!! (Thank you so much lady!!)
Sweater, jeans, & shoes (similar)
I love this comfy outfit from Old Navy and JCP.  I don’t shop much at JCP but my better half loves to get some “working man” jeans there for pretty cheap, which is why I was there.  The JCP sweater is so soft and lightweight which is perfect for fall here in Texas!  These Old Navy jeans are thinner and have some stretch (which makes them last a little longer for me losing weight).  They also tend to fit slightly larger, so I would suggest ordering a size down from your normal! For $15, these jeans really can’t be beat!
BP. Faux Leather Leggings, photo cred Nordstrom
I just ordered these faux leather leggings from Nordstrom that I can’t wait to pair with that sweater!! Get them here for $29!  These are definitely going to be a fall/winter staple for me!

I love this cowl neck shirt and it is from Frenchrum Emporium - an adorable online boutique!  This great piece is extremely soft and was only $28!!  Once again, being in Texas, lighter long sleeve or sweaters are better because our winters just aren’t prominent for any lengthy amount of time compared to other places. 
Shirt, jeans, & boots.
I had to at least show off my handsome man and a couple of things we got him.  His shirt is Old Navy for $18 but his jeans are definitely a splurge!  They are Buffalo by David Bitton.  The fit and the longevity of these jeans are so worth it!! They typically run around $100 but we found this magical unicorn pair on clearance with a coupon for $25. WINNING!!

Well that is it from our shopping trip last weekend!  Stop by the blog later this week and you will see the design will have a face lift!!  I will also be posting several recipes this week in preparation for Thanksgiving.  Thanks for stopping by the blog and hopefully I put you in the shopping spirit!  Christmas is so close – don’t wait until the last moment!!  Now go out and enjoy this amazing Sunday!
