I have been really good y’all with online shopping but then why did it have to get cold here, all the sales are incredibly good and I’m moving so therefore I am overhauling my closet and replacing a lot of staples that have run their course. If you haven’t guessed by now but I love pairing high end pieces with affordable trendy pieces……that way the entire outfit looks put together but I’m not breaking the bank. This past weekend….it all started with the Loft sale and went downhill. I have some app on my phone that alerts me when packages are out for delivery (that’s not even with the scrolling down I needed to do).
The first one to arrive was my Forever 21 delivery as I highlighted in this post. I really wanted to keep everything but I think I was being a little over zealous with all the warm weather buys because it was back into like the 70’s again today. I apologize in advance for all the mirror selfies…..I was without a willing photographer tonight.
I was a little nervous on arrival because it looked pretty little, luckily it has a lot of stretch to it. It’s not too short and I really like the color of it, it’s a little deeper in real life. I could totally see it for office holiday parties. I got a size small but the medium probably would have worked as well.
If you need to make it cold weather appropriate add some black tights, booties and a cute crop jacket over the top (I apologize for the dark pictures I was taking these after work and you know it gets dark at like 5 now). It you want to go a little crazy you could add a black faux fur vest over it like this one.
Remember that statement pullover in this post? It’s pretty adorable. I don’t think I could get away with it at work but on the weekends it is perfect. It has just the right amount of drape and it’s just loose enough. I got a small for reference point and there is still some room.
You can layer up your thick Zara scarf with it (kinda looks like a neck brace but didn’t want to cover up the writing hahahaha).
Or if you want to get all Blogger girl looking and totally rock it….add the Herringbone vest over the top of it.
I also got a bunch of basic layering tops, for some reason I can only find one black one right now and it’s basically grey from all the washes. I bought them in medium, probably could have gotten a small but I didn’t want them to be skin tight. I love this dusty lavender color, layered with this scarf and my crossbody purse. Perfect for running around and looking somewhat put together and not in workout clothes.
Next off…..things I’m on the fence about and things that I wanted to love but at going back
I like the shape, neckline and lay of this sweater plus it’s long enough to cover the booty so you can wear it with leggings and boots. I was going to take it back because I really don’t need it….like I was sweating just taking these pictures inside my condo but for cold weather peeps it would keep you warm. I also didn’t love the initial smell out of the bag…..I’m letting it air outside on my balcony I’ll keep you updated. It was on sale (aka final sale) when I bought it soooooo guess who is sticking around.
I really wanted to love this sweater. I thought it would be great for work. I like that it has a very nice heavy drape to it but I honestly think it’s too much for FL and I wouldn’t get enough use out of it plus it was on the higher end for F21 (like almost $30) so it’s going back. It looked cute under a black blazer but I don’t need it.
Last the fun piece of the haul. I secretly want to keep this sequined shrug but sadly it’s going back. I just know I won’t wear it but it’s so fun isn’t it? I mean you can literally put it over anything and you instantly have a holiday outfit plus it’s such a fun blush color! Please someone buy it and wear it out into New York or something. This sequined number needs an outing!
It’s already sold out dang that was fast but here are a few other sequined pieces I have my eye on!
Also did you have a chance to get the pieces you wanted from the Toms and Target Collaboration?! The grey poncho went like immediately! I found two great similar options that are right around the same price range. If you need any help with styling them check this post I did on that previously.
Alright there is my first round of things that have been delivered. I have some great staple pieces from the Loft Sale, the Target and Toms Collaboration and a few other goodies on the way. What things have you gotten during the sales this month? Are there pieces that you love but you return because you know you won’t wear them?
Check back tomorrow I have a fun post that I hope really catches on! xoxoxo
