I've been a bad, bad girl.....(Thanks Fiona Apple....)

Ok, let me preface this by saying that I did not pay for ALL of this. No, I'm not awesome and have sponsors who are now telling me to blog about this....if only. My dearest mother gave me her card to find the maxi skirt I have been searching far and wide for and I FOUND IT....but then found a lot of other cute things, too! No, no, don't think I abused my parents' funds like that...I paid for the rest of what I bought, so go me for being nice to my parents, boo me for stepping off of the "spend-freeze" train.

I most definitely made a haul video where I crack some bad jokes and become scatter-brained because I was trying to film quickly before I went out to dinner and from that point up until now, I cannot for the life of me figure out why it won't let me upload it. It keeps telling me there was an error, boo! So, yes, out of tiredness and laziness, I am giving up and writing about this haul. The photos are not that great but it gets the job done, so don't judge too harshly!

Let's talk fashion!

From Marshall's:
FINALLY found my long-searched-for black maxi and I owe it to Little Petite because I saw her OOTD and her black maxi outfit was SO cute, I had to know where she got it. Turns out she found it at Marshall's (which is why I went to my own) and I have to say, now I love that place....I never knew they had such good deals!
Second maxi is a great print for summer and transitioning into fall. Can never have too many maxis, and Who What Wear just had an article on printed maxis, so yay for my new one....I am just sooo fashionable (note : sarcasm!)

They place the shoes in the front of Marshall's....much too smart! I saw a pair of wedges that were all one color (top and wedge, I mean) and it was a gorgeous chestnut brown, but alas, not in my size :( This pair is the same style but different color and honestly, I love them just as much. I need all the height I can get and I like to wear wedges under my maxis so it looks like I may just be that tall naturally since the skirt hides the shoes for the most part- hey, a short gal can dream!
This bag really didn't need to be purchased, but it's Tommy Hilfiger, a cute color, and on clearance! It was a nearly $80 bag and I got it for $ I was basically forced to buy it! Such a cute bag for the beach and the snap closure is great since none of the other bags I have for the beach close. So yes, I somehow rationalized that I needed this beach bag so now it sits in my room, as anxious for the beach as I am!

I drove over to Target afterward just to pick up some basics to pair with the new skirts....they are, like I already said, basic, so I just posted the links - if you feel like looking, click away! One is actually not so basic and quite cute, though!

From Target:
Black Ribbed Tank
Green Ribbed Tank**
Khaki Ribbed Tank**
White Boyfriend Tee
Converse Ruffled Splatter Print Tank
**Colors not posted online - tanks are currently on sale for $5 on their site but were $9 in stores, so I'm not sure if I actually found the exact tank, but it's close enough....who hasn't seen basic tanks? Target has great ones!

I mentioned above, so click on the link if you'd like...I highly recommend it! Be sure to sign up for their daily emails and check out their books, too, they're awesome!
Also check out Little Petite's page because, like I said, she gave me the answer to where I could finally find the long-searched-for maxi!

So yes, BACK on the spend-freeze train. All aboard to happier wallets! (Cheesy, whatev). Hope you all enjoyed the weekend!
Beach Countdown = FIVE days! Travel version of "what's in my bag(s)?!" to come soon!

Until next time, as always, farewell love bugs!


  1. Those shoes are so cute! I would break my ankle walking in wedges, but I still like to look!

    Also, I don't know if you got this from someone else or not, but I'm nominating you for the Butterfly Award. Deets on my blog!

  2. I love all your finds! I am a big fan of Marshalls and TJ Maxx, because I can find such great deals.

    I am your newest follower, and can't wait to read more! :)

    I'm new to blogging and would love for you to stop by for a visit!

  3. Target is theeee best.. My bank account always gets in trouble when I go in there!

  4. Great finds! I love that bag! TjMaxx and Marshalls are hit or miss for me. Sometimes I'll walk in and see nothing appealing, and other times I want to buy EVERYTHING haha
