Bargain Hunter

About a month or so ago, I was reading a spring issue of one of my fashion magazines and my eye went directly for this lovely jacket by Ann Taylor. I ripped out the page and added it to my stack of must haves.

While waiting for this jacket to appear in stores and online, I was searching for collarless jackets on eBay and came across this very similar Talbots jacket. I waited until the last day to see if there would be any bids. I lucked out and got it for $4.99! Much better than the $200 price tag at Ann Taylor and they practically look the same!

I also bought these yellow sandals at the consignment store about 2-3 years ago. They've just been sitting in my closet and I was about to consign them again. Thank goodness I didn't. I dug them out of my consignment pile this morning. I think I paid about $10 for these never worn sandals. Since neon and bright colors are all over the place this year, I figured I'd give them another chance. So glad I did. I think they're going to be my new favorite go-to sandals.

My husband said I look like 'spring' today. It's a beautiful, sunny 60-degree day here in Connecticut. Hope the warming trend continues.

  2. I definitely see why you like those sandals so much, the color and height of them is perfect for so many warm weather outfits. I love how you added the color under your jacket and the bright pink lipstick. Very pretty and so put together
