Shopping Day with My Mom

Hello everyone!  And welcome to another blog post.

To be honest, this week has been extremely boring and I haven’t done anything exciting.  I have literally just been working and nothing else.  Thankfully, I enjoy working and would rather work than go to school.

But, my mom and I did go shopping the other day!  It was fun and relaxing and it was nice to get away from my apartment and work.

The first thing I was looking for things for my best friends wedding.  Well, bridal shower.  I am her maid of honor (I have no idea what I’m doing) and I am planning the bridal shower.  Now, she told me that she wanted to do teal and foxes.

DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO FIND FOXES RIGHT NOW?

Yes, it is extremely hard to find foxes right now.  I don’t know why, but it is hard.  And then I found these cards!  Aren’t they adorable?

Fox Cards

Next thing was finding fun stuff.  And, I mean clothes.  So mom and I went into Torrid, which is an all plus sized store, and all of their clearance was buy one get one 50% off.  Hooray!  And I ended up spending only $8!  I had a $20 gift card and a $25 Visa card, so I only spent $8 of my own cash.  Awesome!

 

We then moved onto Forever 21.  And their clearance was buy one get one free!  Who could pass that up?  Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything on the clearance shelf.  But, I did find these two shirts and only spent $.75!  I had a $25 gift card and only spent $.75 out of pocket.  And this is why I love gift cards!

Moral of the story, use gift cards and spend less out of pocket for your clothes!  Or whatever you have gift cards for!  Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous Finds and Fashion-Floral Ruffled Tank Top

Hello!  Welcome!  I hope that you are all having a great week so far and I hope that you are all looking forward to the plans that you have in store for the weekend.

So, this week, I didn’t find anything interesting.  But, I did rediscover a tank top that I had hanging in the closet.  I purchased the top from Maurices in January of 2015, and it has been extremely cute.  But, it has been very hard to wear because it is long and flowy.

So I took this opportunity to find some new outfits to wear with the shirt.

1. Tank Top and Shorts

Look 1

And here is the shirt.  You might be able to tell how it can be a little hard to wear.  I added a pair of Torrid denim shorts and a pair of gold Vera Wang flip flops to finish the look.  It is perfect for any summer day and perfect to keep cool.

2. Tank Top and Pink Capris

Look 2

I have owned this pair of pink capris for quite a few years.  They are Faded Glory and I bought them from Walmart for Easter.  They are so comfy and they look good with so many different shirts.  I added a pair of Mossimo blingy nude flats to finish off the look.

3. Tank Top, Lace Cover Up, and Jean Capris

Look 3

So, I forgot that I had this lace cover up in my closet.  It looks really good over the tank top.  I tied it in the front because it didn’t look good hanging loose in the front.  I added a pair of jean capris and pink floral Vera Wang flip flops to finish off the look.

I am very happy with my new outfit choices.  I can’t wait to wear them out to school or church or even shopping.  I hope that you like my new outfits, and I can’t wait to see you on Friday!
