40 off @ LOFT plus GAP, Old Navy, Bath & Body Works

So I had to hit up LOFT today (and yesterday too, to be truthful) to take advantage of various promotions. Yesterday's promotion was 50 off select styles (which is a promotion I don't care for BUT it was the first time a skirt I have been wanting has hit sale!) Yesterday I bought this cheetah skirt for $35!

Today, the entire store was 40 off and although I was looking for clothing, I ended up purchasing this cabochon necklace for $16.50!

I also hit up GAP because I had a 30 off coupon for cardholders. As it turned out, I couldn't use it because the item I wanted was a sale item that was already 30 off the markdown. I had seen this 1969 pocket jacket (olive) before but to be honest, I have three other green jackets. It would be crazy to own four, right? Well, the other three have a hood, and this one doesn't. Also this one is longer than the ones I own, which are technically more spring jackets. So I got it for $42. I think I will keep it!

Today I also received an online order from Old Navy. I ordered a roll cuff blouse in dark blue (not navy, more bright cerulean), a leopard sleeveless tank for layering, and striped roll cuff blouse in khaki striped. 

I became obsessed with ON's roll cuff blouses after buying one, quite by accident, in a mint sea foam color (sorry no online photo available). I had wanted a mint colored blouse after seeing the Blythe blouse from J. Crew on several fashion blogs. I had also seen the Mossimo for Target version on some blogs, but unfortunately the fit was not right for my body. The Old Navy roll cuff fits me. terrific! The day I had been looking (unsuccessfully) to buy the Blythe blouse, I wandered into Old Navy and VOILE! -- there it was! I am very pleased with the style, the fit, the price, and the quality for the price.
Of course, I would be remiss not to mention that today's shopping excursion was PRIMARILY to pick up candles at Bath and Body Works, which I definitely did. I picked up the following candles during the 2/$20 sale -- with a 20 off coupon and today was a free bonus gift day -- a limited edition Pumpkin candle (for FREE!) So I bought 4 candles, plus... I also had a "buy any $13 item of your choice" coupon as well so I got some free body lotion! Four 3 wick candles, room freshener, 1 smaller candle, and hand lotion for a total of $42!


  1. Ha...I bought the same skirt from ATL! and what a bargain! Can't wait to wear it.

  2. I'm not surprised --- we have similar taste!

    I love cheetah and leopard print and my challenge as a school teacher is to mix it into work outfits in a way that is subtle.

    I noticed your post on leopard prints -- you gave me some great idea. BTW-- I have those Viv flats from J. Crew... LOVE THEM.

    Thanks for the comment!
