Shopping Session

It has been months since my last shopping session - way too long.  Spring is upon us and I can't seem to stop myself from browsing all the stores.  In my opinion this is the best season to shop and I could browse for hours. There's sure to be some sales this holiday weekend (I'll share Friday any that I see) so I've been making my picks to get ready.

Flamingo Espadrilles 
How perfect! I love that they are neutral color but I'm also still loving the flamingo trend so that's the perfect touch.  On the weekends, evenings or depending on the type of work day even sometimes then, espadrilles are my go to shoe in the spring time.  (available in pineapple here)

Floral Peplum Tankini
Bathing suit styles - especially tankinis and one pieces - are becoming so much more popular and available in more styles.  It's perfect because sometimes a girl just wants to be a little bit more covered up! Floral and peplum sold me right away but I also picked up (and love) this tiered top too.  I like that both tops can match the bottoms and with Target's BOGO 50% off right now, you can't beat the price.

I found these at the mall the other day and fell in love with the fit (it's hard when you're short!) and I also hate pants - dresses are my item of choice so that's saying a lot.  I'm going back Friday to pick up a couple pairs because I needed to check what colors I even needed first (they come in a ton of colors!  See them all here)

I couldn't leave out a Lilly item.  The Elsa tops are my favorite but I pretty much only wear them when it's a tad cooler so I'm loving this sleeveless style (available in four patterns, five in stores).


Steve Madden Sandals
Primarily I try to buy nude color shoes (with an occasional print or color) but I need to update my black sandals and love the style of these.

Pink Floral Dress
Florals, feminine and pale pink - three of my favorites.  It's a a great price point too.

Tie Tank Top
I love how this has the tie neck and it's a little more subtle when on.  This print has caught my eye on a lot of pieces (dress / t-shirt / long sleeve top)

Bloomstripe Shift Dress
The colors of this dress really grabbed me and the pattern.  It's different than many items in my closet and I'm always looking for some unique pieces to add to the collection. (30% off now)



Lace Peplum Top
Lavender isn't a color I have much of and it's classic spring. Peplum + lace is a fabulous combination too.

Pleated Dress
I saw this last week and have been kicking myself for not picking it up - such a sweet pattern.  Luckily, they had plenty in stock so I can scoop it up this weekend.


Sleeveless Blouse
Last but not least since it's 40% off, this one made it's way into my cart too.  The colors are perfect for spring whether alone or with a sweater.

Happy Wednesday, everyone! Enjoy your day! xx

  18. Love all these! So cute...I did try on that Old Navy- pleated floral dress last weekend and I didn't love the fit. I would love to be able to wear flowy type short dresses but they are just not flattering to my figure. I have to have some type of structure to my dresses and it drives me crazy! :) Love those pink pants!
