The haul after a hiatus

Hey all.... I know I have been a bad blogger, not posting in quite a while. The reason was simple: I have purchased very little that was worthy of blogging about because I have been spending time (and money) trying to beautify my laundry room!

However, spring fever set in on a lovely Friday afternoon and I picked up some steals and splurges!

The petite enamel hinged bracelet from Henri Bendel looks much like the infamous Hermes bangles. Although Henri Bendel items are upper-range in price, it seems like a steal when compared to Hermes!
 I've had these two items from J. Crew on the brain for weeks now. First up is the citron double serge cotton pencil skirt. I wasn't coveting this color, but it was on sale and neon/neutrals is definitely in! I will give it a try. I expect I can pair this skirt with black, white, tan, gray, stripes, and chambray. The stripe top was hard to find as it was sold out online and in most stores. In fact, the one I bought was the last one left and fortunately it was in the size I wanted. The inspiration for that top came from another blogger.
 Lastly, Old Navy had these two tops (the inspiration for which came from a blogger with amazing style)  for just $5 each today! Score!

GAP Friends and Family

Although GAP stores and are boasting the 30-percent off everything sale....those in the know have the 40-percent off everything coupon...which is 10 percent BETTER!

I bought a total of FIVE of the boatneck tees....with clearance and coupon cost just $9 each, and the red jean leggings, which were actually hard to find and are sold out online. I used the coupon to knock the full price down to $42.

Old Navy delivers

I haven't made a purchase at Old Navy for quite some time. In fact the last time I shopped there had to be for $2 tanks. I am more of a GAP or Banana Republic girl. But... I was in the market for dresses and didn't want to break the bank since I don't wear them often. Tried Tar-jay but no luck. I tried these on in the Old Navy store today. Loved them. I was aware that there was a 30 percent off website sale going on so I went home and made that happen. Here is what I got:

I can't wait to wear the blue dress with a Lands End cardigan. How cute? And the yellow it! I liked it so much I had to get it in black. Hey, you can never have too many black dresses. And I think I will wear it with this belt, also from Old Navy:

Kendra Scott 'Danielle' earrings

I bought all three pairs in the last week. But let me just say that I had been salivating over them for a while and when these particular colors began to sell out on various websites, it fed my need to buy all three. Enjoy.

Danielle Kendra Scott earrings (ret. $60) in salmon, yellow and green. I managed to get a deal on the yellow earrings so use your Google Shopping feature to compare prices.
