Latest Online Shopping Haul + Different Ways To Style Each Piece

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
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.

First off this dress.

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.
Heels old but similar here
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.
Sweater | Jeans (obsessed perfect amount of stretch!)| Gold Zipper Boots
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.
Scarf (super affordable and lays perfectly!) | Purse Mini Mac Taupe
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.
Sweater | Grey Boots (amazing!!)
Things that are going back
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.
                                                                Grey Poncho                                        Southwestern Poncho
Last thing I’m Digging.  You know those coordinates pieces that are all the rage?  Well I found totally affordable options!

All the pretty things rounded up from this post!

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
Follow me on!

    I loooove that blue lace dress! I would’ve purchased a sequined shrug too if I saw it on a good price but like you said, it would’ve collected dust and waste my hard earn money. I shopped at F21 a few days ago because they had free shipping and managed to grabbed a romper and skirt on sale! I wished they had more fall/winter stuff but there’s no harm in stocking up for Summer 2015, haha! Especially with things 50% off!

  2. November 18, 2014 / 6:04 AM

    That dark blue lace dress is gorgeous! There are so many things that I would purchase on whim if I could, luckily my bank account reminds me I can’t ha ha ;D I would love to stock up on some snug winter clothes though.

  3. November 18, 2014 / 6:19 AM

    I love that coordinates bracelet and I’m so getting on the wait list for it. Such a great find! Thank you!!

  4. November 18, 2014 / 7:59 AM

    Great haul!! You make me want to go shopping!

  5. November 18, 2014 / 9:42 AM

    I love that vest! Every time you post a picture with it I debate buying one!

  6. November 18, 2014 / 11:40 AM

    I love all of these, but you already know my favorite is that first dress! Now I’m going to blame you when my credit card bill shoots through the roof! lol

  7. November 18, 2014 / 11:47 AM

    I really need some basic layering tees…going to stock up on those!! That dress looks amazing on you and so great with tights too!!! I really love the sweater paired with the vest – looks perfect!! Great buys girl!! xo

  8. November 18, 2014 / 12:12 PM

    Totally loving all of your finds! That lace dress looks amazing on you! I love it with the tights and booties! And I do love that sequin shrug but I agree, it’s definitely more NYC than Florida haha! Why do we have to be so darn casual down here? Love the Toms poncho, so cute!!

    <3, Pamela

    Loving all your finds! I may have to go out and get that F21 dress for upcoming parties… gorgeous!

    I also think I need that app to track my packages, I go nuts wondering where my shipments are especially this time of year :-P

  10. November 18, 2014 / 1:16 PM

    I am obsessed with that dress!! Love all the other finds as well.

  11. November 18, 2014 / 1:18 PM

    Ok stop it. You are just too cute. I’m going to need to fly you out to NC and take me shopping!!

  12. November 18, 2014 / 1:32 PM

    You scored some seriously amazing new pieces! And I totally feel you- the online shopping urge definitely gets stronger when the seasons cool off and all those sales start hitting! :)

  16. November 18, 2014 / 2:14 PM

    That first dress looks amazing on you! You are so tiny!

  17. November 18, 2014 / 2:15 PM

    That lace dress is fantastic!!! I didn’t get anything from the Tom’s/Target collaboration. I wanted to but I’m trying to be good. You know how bad I have been!!! LOL. Now, I’m waiting for the Cyber Monday sales!!

  18. November 18, 2014 / 2:23 PM

    If you don’t need that sweater, I’ll send you my address haha It’s really cute though with those boots. I like it. I also love that lace dress on you. That black and grey poncho is cute too. Would you mind sending over some 70s here too? Its going to be another 20 degree day here today. Sigh. I hope that you are having a good day so far too! :-)

  19. November 18, 2014 / 2:40 PM

    That dress looks phenomenal on you – and I’m with you with the dark pics – WHY IS IT PITCH BLACK AT 5PM? CHEEEEZUS CRUST!

    That shrug is super fun – but, totally get why you returned it.

    :) Great post!

  20. November 18, 2014 / 2:51 PM

    You got so many great pieces, that dress is just so pretty! I love that!

  21. November 18, 2014 / 2:51 PM

    That lace dress looks fantastic on you! It actually looks just like the dress I wore for my wedding rehearsal but in ivory. Maybe you’ve inspired me to now wear that dress with some tights, booties and a leather jacket … Anyways! That little sequin number also is pretty amazing, but I understand about not having anywhere to wear it. I really want to get a sequin mini skirt to wear with tights for New Years!

  22. November 18, 2014 / 2:57 PM

    Loving that lace dress! I know it’s so hard to resist all these good sales for myself when I really should be getting my Christmas shopping started, how is it that I already feel behind?!

  23. November 18, 2014 / 3:03 PM

    Ahhhh! I Love your style! You need to come help dress me! Especially for this stupid gender reveal photoshoot! Lol! :)

  24. November 18, 2014 / 3:36 PM

    That dress is so gorgeous on you! I love everything you got! I especially love that lavender shirt, it looks so cozy!

  25. November 18, 2014 / 3:42 PM

    Love love love everything! That lace dress is perfect…and the online shopping gets me every. single. time.
    xo! Southern Style

  26. November 18, 2014 / 3:45 PM

    That dress is amazing! And I love, love, love the sequins vest!

  27. November 18, 2014 / 4:16 PM

    That sequin shrug is amazing and I bet if you kept it you’d find reasons and ways to wear it. Holiday parties, NYE, birthday, Tuesdays….any day is a good day for some sparkle!

    That dress look SO good on you! You’re so tiny! :) Great picks. Everything looks amazing. :)

  29. November 18, 2014 / 5:25 PM

    Wait what app is that? I so need it to track my packages too. The logo top with the vest is my favorite look.

  30. November 18, 2014 / 5:28 PM

    I finally have embraced scarves! Yay (don’t know if you remember me telling you I felt silly wearing them in Florida, lol)…but vests, I am not sure about still ;) Though you can pull them off!

  31. November 18, 2014 / 5:39 PM

    Love how you mixed everything up – especially the tee! Tights/heels versus none always create such a different look which is awesome for stretching a wardrobe ;)

  32. November 18, 2014 / 6:04 PM

    I love the dark blue lace dress! So pretty. :) What app do you use to track your packages? So great for this time of the year.

  33. November 18, 2014 / 7:17 PM

    I just love all these looks and and and I need you to come shopping with me in my closet please! :)

  34. November 18, 2014 / 7:17 PM

    i looove to online shop! it’s a little too says to add things to your cart! haha love your choices and how you styled them! <3

  35. November 18, 2014 / 7:31 PM

    “if you want to get all blogger girl…” HAHHA! That made me laugh. There are some things that I think are so popular in the blog world but are not popular outside in the “real world”. Like the Herringbone vest… I was a little hesitant to buy it because I felt like EVERYONE had it. Then I realized that I had not ever seen a single person outside of my computer screen wearing it haha

  36. November 18, 2014 / 8:01 PM

    Stop it–you are killing it on all these looks!! I love seeing different ways to style them–plus, I am not going to lie–I am totally holding back from buying that sequin jacket! It is FAB–yes in all caps :) Now if only I lived in NYC so I had somewhere to wear it!


  37. November 19, 2014 / 1:50 AM

    that sequined shrug is fabulous, but if you’re not gonna wear it – back it goes! that dress is gorgeous on you! love it with the tights. i bought some tops from forever 21 last week, wish they would hurry up and get here!

  38. November 19, 2014 / 3:10 AM

    I thought I was doing great without online shopping, but now I miss it. You have such great fashion sense, girlfriend! xo

  39. November 19, 2014 / 3:11 AM

    I love the lace dress!! Guess what? You can wear that grey sweater tomorrow morning because it is freaking freezing out there now!!! I love the sequined shrug too. It would be perfect for New Years Eve, but then it probably wouldn’t get warn again… Good call sending it back.

  40. November 19, 2014 / 3:26 AM

    Love that first dress on you! And how amazing you have the perfect matching shoes! You can never have enough layering tops! I love how practical you are about things that you won’t really wear!

  41. November 19, 2014 / 12:13 PM

    too bad the sequins are going back. they are so pretty!

  42. November 19, 2014 / 11:17 PM

    Now THAT, is what I call a shopping spree!! Love it!

  43. November 20, 2014 / 12:40 AM

    All of the clothes you are keeping look wonderful on you!!
    Thanks for sharing those affordable coordinate necklaces. Once we get settled in a new house I am planning on getting one made for my mom and I with my coordinates in Australia and hers in Tampa.
