What’s in My Shopping Cart?

What popped into my mailbox this week:
$20 Rewards Card from Ann Taylor Loft
$25 Gift Card to Ann Taylor (minimime $125 online purchase, none in stores)
20% off Coupon to Piperlime.com

I immediately spent hours online perusing these sites for what I want. These are what I picked out:


Current.Elliot Leopard Stiletto Jeans
Current/Elliot Leopard Stiletto Jeans
After seeing it on Wendy from wendyslookbook.com, I love the understated leopard print. I prefer a darker jeans color because I have kids and I tend to get into very noticeable messes.

Current/Elliot Floral Stiletto Jeans

A Spring 2012 trend I want to try is floral denim. I have noticed that Citizens of Humanity has a pale floral denim but I have never worn Current/Elliot so I wanted to try it. Also Current/Elliot’s floral print looks more muted and that’s more to my style.

C. luce Watercolor Chiffon Dress
C.Luce Watercolor Chiffon Dress
Another Spring 2012 trend is the High Low hemline. This Waterfall dress is also in multiple pastel colors that I have been madly in love with. If the dress fits well, I might be able to wear it to a Spring wedding (2 Spring weddings on the same day).

C.Luce Lovely Lady Dress
C.Luce Lovely Lady DressThis pastel pink dress looks very young, fresh, and Spring! I love the elasticized waistband with a little bit of frill. Hopefully between the Waterfall and the Lovely Lady dresses I will be able to pick one for the weddings I’ve been invited to.

This is a sweater jacket which I love. I have a Gap and Banana Republic sweater jacket in a blazer cut. This is like a tweed version. It also comes in a pinkish color.

I love embellished tees because they are comfy, easy to wear, and can instantly glam up your outfit if you want to.

Ann Taylor Loft Striped Smocked Dress

My obsession with sweater dresses have evolved onto t-shirt dresses. I have been thinking about investing in an easy to wear t-shirt dress that’s great for casual or even glam wear.

Lace is so timeless and classic. It can be turn a simple outfit into an extraordinary outfit. It would be a good investment piece.

Another item that is lace. I couldn’t find anything else I would like to have at Ann Taylor besides their blouses. But I have too many blouses already. I’m not ready to purchase another one.

Those are my picks but it seems like I have been straying away from these retailers. I’m also looking at zara.com, anthropologie.com, and shopbop.com. Now I have to budget and pick which items I really want.

Did you see anything you would like to share?

I'm a mom of 2 girls. I struggled to lose the baby weight the second time around and by blogging my struggles helped me deal with a lot of the stress. During my struggles, I had random strangers ask me "How far along are you?" or "When are you due?" I was embarrassed. Most of the time I told them the truth, that I had given birth X months before. There were a couple of times I lied and said what they wanted to hear. When I was at a normal weight, I then struggled to find what clothes fit me. Everything about fashion went out the door and I had to re-learn what clothes and sizes fit my post pregnancy body the 2nd time around.

    1. Oh that’s sad that it didn’t work out. Can’t wait to see what other outfits you have planned though!
