Sales sales everywhere

Lately I feel like everything is on sale, to the point where my wallet and closet can't take much more saturation. (I'm talking about YOU Gap and your 40% off promotions). I've gotten to the point where I need to force myself to second guess purchases I would've jumped on a few months ago.

Case in point, this dress. I spotted this recently on the H&M sale rack and spent a good 10 minutes debating if it should come home with me. I adore the fit, and you couldn't do wrong with the price (hello... $10!). Yet I stood there in the changing room thinking, "Yay, nay? Is the print cute or fug?"

Finally I snapped myself out of it and took it home with me.  I'm glad I did.

Simple outfit + statement necklace

Outfit Details:

top - Joe Fresh, cardigan - J.Crew, jeans - Gap, shoes - Connie, necklace - Cleo

It's super cold outside so I decided to dress for comfort and warmth. I added a fun necklace to keep the outfit from being too boring. The necklace was actually a fantastic find from Cleo -- a store which is frequented by an older demographic, including my MIL. I love her, but we definitely have a different sense of style. I wander in there every so often because they do have some cute stuff which I can fit into my style. And they always seem to have a surprisingly good collection of jewelry and their sales can be awesome. This necklace (one of four I hauled about a month ago) was $5.99!

Finds like those make me secretly squeal with delight every time I pull it out of my closet... or in this case, my jewelry box.

Big ole pocket skirt

Outfit Details:

top - Gap, skirt and belt - H&M, tights - Joe Fresh, flats - Banana Republic, Bag - Foley and Corinna


In the past few months, I've seen this skirt become a favourite with many bloggers.  From pictures, I thought it was cute, but nothing that I really had to have.  Until I happened upon it in a recent trip to H&M.   The pockets looked so cute and drapey, the material had a nice flow to it, and the olive was a colour lacking in my wardrobe.  So I brought it with me to the change room.  At that point, it was plain and simple LOVE.  So much so, that I went back the next day to pick up a second skirt in black.

When I wear this skirt, I can't keep from putting stuff in my pockets. Apparently, Maya can't either and takes great joy in hiding her Polly Pockets and Littlest Pet Shop toys in them.
