With all the recent sales at Gap and J. Crew, I decided to treat myself to a few spring clothing items. It is, after all, my favorite time of year to shop. I just love all the bright colors!
I needed a new raincoat (after burning a small piece of my beloved synthetic trench coat with a hot iron!) so I liked this "fisherman mac" coat in coral blaze by Gap. It is a pretty color, the waist is adjustable, the length is good, and it is lightweight. Most importantly, it will serve to keep me dry in the rain. Since the online offer at Gap was 40 percent off, I also grabbed the now infamous ladybug print shirt. I had seen it before in store and on several other bloggers. I wanted to see if I would love it after trying it on at home. I did -- it was a good purchase ... and helped ease the frustration of not purchasing the Gap owl print shirt last year. (That just proved to me that if you wait too long for something, you might miss out.)
In J. Crew I picked up the strawberry mint plaid shirt after seeing it styled many was on Tweed and Toile. I am surprised to have wanted a plaid shirt at this time of year, but I just love the colors. I also saw a pair of Cafe Capri pants in Dusty Mauve. Even though I have the pink herringbone pants, these are a lighter material -- perfect for the 70 degree temperatures we are expected to get this week! (Finally- spring is here!) After discounts (and I'm pleased they once again are honoring educator discounts), the total for both was around $70.
Do you own any of these items? What do you think of them? Have you made any good or bad purchases lately? Please comment -- I love to hear from you!
