Recent Purchases

Yeesh!  I’ve done a lot of shopping over the last couple of months, but I LOVE the things I’ve gotten and want to share them with you before they’re unavailable.  Plus, they probably won’t make their way onto the blog anytime soon since I’m traveling so much and won’t take outfit pics.  
As you can see, I went a tad blazer-happy, but all 4 of them are pieces I’ve been hunting for for-EHHH-vverrr.  (Think The Sandlot.)  Anyway, here’s my list from November and December.
#1 – Pink blazer from SheInside, also sold by Topshop (shop, similar, similar).  I’ve been deciding about a pink blazer for nearly a year!  I saw this one from Topshop for more cash than I wanted to fork over, but after searching for it online I found the exact same blazer from the manufacturer (SheInside–first link) for less than half the price.  Then I checked retailmenot.com for a discount code and ended up paying nearly a third of the Topshop price!
#2 – Grey blazer, H&M (similar at Forever 21).  I’ve searched for one of these for years, but nothing was satisfying.  I kind of put it on the back burner but had been wanting one for the big work conference coming up.  With 4 other grey blazers in my hand, my friend spotted this one in the store but they didn’t have my size, only the next size down.  I tried it anyway, and while the 4 other grey blazers were too small, this particular one that was a size down fits PERFECTLY.  I love it!  It fits so well that my husband said it looked like it was tailored to fit me!
#3 – Black blazer, Old Navy (shop).  These keep going on sale, both in store and online, so don’t pay full price for these!  The black blazer I currently have is one that my sister found on clearance at Target for $8, but it’s a size or two too big for me.  It works well as a boyfriend type of blazer, but I’ve been wanting a legit, more fitted black blazer.
#4 – Red blazer, Old Navy (shop).  I love my red blazer from Daisy Rae, but it’s actually a little small for me and I’ve kind of busted it as a result, so I’ve been in need of a new red blazer.  
#5 – Dotted blouse, H&M (similar, similar, similar).  I’ve wanted a polka dot button front blouse, but the shirts I found, while they were totallyyyyy cute, they just didn’t work for me.  I LOVE that this one isn’t quite made of dots, rather, they’re more like spots that aren’t perfectly shaped.  I can’t wait to wear this blouse!  
#6 – Green sweater, Target (shop).  I’ve worn this on the blog recently, but what I forgot to mention is that this sweater is also shimmery!  You can’t see it in the pictures, but there’s glittery stuff speckled throughout it.
#7 – Sequin tank, Old Navy (shop).  The one I bought is actually sold out and there’s no picture of it anymore, but it’s basically the one above with a grey back instead of the white.  This is my first sequined shirt, and I got it on major sale.
#8 & 9 – Skirts, Target (shop).  After I saw the orange one on Kendi, you’d better believe the next time I was at Target I kept my eye out for these.  I was looking for some thicker skirts to wear this time of year and these were exactly what I wanted!  Lucky for me, I found them on the clearance rack.  
#10 – Coral belt, Forever 21 (shop).  It might kind of look like bubble gum pink on your screens (yuck!) but in person it’s a more saturated coral.  At $4.80, this one basically jumped into my hands before I knew what was happening!  

Have any favorites?  What pieces are you hunting for these days?
