Today was one of those Mondays where I needed the day off to rest and recoup from the weekend. The last week has been so busy that I haven’t had much time for blogging or relaxing in general. My goal this weekend is to stay home and do as little as possible, we’ll see how that plan works out! I will be posting this week about my son’s second birthday party and the amazing Indian wedding reception I attended last night.
Gap jean’s jacket, bought several years ago, I’m honestly not too sure how much I paid for it, I doubt more than $30, last seen here. It is cool in the mornings, so I have to dress in layers. The heating and cooling in my classroom is crazy and it has two settings freezing or crazy hot, so I always wear a jacket or light sweater to work. Navy blue and white nautical striped t-shirt, $9.99 from Forever21, bought three years ago. I really don’t understand why people give Forever21 such a bad rep, I have bought tons of clothes there that have held up quite well over the years. Considering the low cost of the items at Forever21, I think it is a great place to shop, especially if you want to experiment and try a new trend or style.
Pink skinny jeans by Fire Los Angeles $19.99 from Nordstrom Rack, bought this January, last seen here. I love these jeans, I am kicking myself for not buying them in every color! I really wish I had, I was so happy when I found them in mint at TJ Maxx last month for the same great price, major score!
Graphic floral print boatshoes $8.99 Old Navy, bought yesterday. I went in to exchange a dress and couldn’t pass these up! The sales associate was literally marking them down in front of me, I couldn’t believe my good fortune! I even bought them in pink! I am obsessed with Sperry Top-Siders, but I just can’t convince myself to buy them, so these are my Sperry inspired shoes for a fraction of the price! They are extremely comfortable and I know I will wear them throughout spring and summer!
