Election Day

The hubster and I got up early today and cast our ballot by 9 am! No line, no problems. Hope the rest of New Jersey has the same easy experience!

So we voted, now what? "Let's go shopping," I suggested. "You need a new fleece jacket." He agreed!

We got his North Face Denali jacket rather quickly.  I wanted to shop in at least a handful of stores. I intended to make a purchase at LOFT where they are offering a storewide promotion today. However, the items didn't do it for me as much as I thought they would, so I passed. Happy about that, because we ended up at a nearby mall with a J. Crew Factory. The entire store is --are you ready for this?-- 40 off!


I bought the purple schoolboy blazer, crystal petal earrings, and another perfect shirt in flannel for a total of $100 after discounts. Score! Most excited about the purple blazer, which was on the sale rack BTW. It's only my FIFTH schoolboy blazer, and really my eighth if you count the three "look-a-likes" I have. But I see it as a timeless piece that can be worn in and out of the workplace. Very happy about it.

    1. When it comes to bubble necklaces, pencil skirts and yes, schoolboy blazers ... I need an intervention! Save me from myself -- LOL!

      Thanks for the comment!

  4. Oh me! Oh my! 40% off - you are so lucky that you decided to go :) I'm so jealous of everyone near factory outlets. hehe

    1. Thanks Tasia -- Factory outlets are awesome and I must say that one of the BEST parts of living in NJ is close proximity to just about every store. I would say that a trip to a factory store, especially in an area with other outlets, is well worth the driving -- especially during holiday sales.

      Thanks for being here!
