What I Bought Wednesday!

I went shopping and tried on A LOT of clothes and purchased a few items. It is such a luxury for husband to give me the day off for shopping.  I mostly order online or rush in and out of a store (Target) with the kids in tow! I actually spent 5 hours at the Nebraska Crossings Outlet Mall and took time to browse, touch, and try on :)

My Picks:

Forever 21

I love their skinny jeans. They fit me well and the price is unbeatable! I bought the lighter version of these. They are 29 inch (ankle) in length. They range from $7.80-12.80.

I also love these nude bralettes and pick up a couple ($4.80) each time I go.

J. Crew

I have been struggling with online short buying, so it was nice to try on 2 sizes and 2 different lengths to find what's right for me. Size 2, 5 inch inseam chino short for the win! I only bought one pair because I hope to find better prices on Ebay now that I know what fits.

Banana Republic

I was in search of a nice sundress and found it here. The print I bought is much bolder, but can't find it online. Pricey, but oh! the quality!
This is the ombre halter dress.

Rack Room Shoes

These were love at first sight. I had a similar black pair a few seasons ago, but have completely worn them out. These have a nice zipper detail on the back and grey is a great neutral. You can find these online in this color at Baker's. They are the Zigi Soho Abilene Sandal.

Victoria's Secret

I've had my eye on this swim top for a couple of months and waited until the Semi-Annual sale to grab it!
This is the Beach Sexy Crop Top.


Excited to try their workout wear. These fit like a glove and are great quality!
These are the GapFit Gfast legging.

In other news, I'm participating in the Summer Challenge presented by Alison Lumbatis at Get Your Pretty On and will be posting my outfits weekly! Her fashion challenges are so much fun and give you another reason to go shopping :)
