Recent Purchases

Happy Monday! We are coming off a busy weekend that included a girls night out for me on Friday, a day trip to Gainesville to see our older son and a catch up day on Sunday.  I’ve been working on painting my kitchen table and chairs and that’s the kind of project that has many layers! Not just the painting but also reupholstering the chairs and getting new window treatments.  So today I’m keeping it fairly simple with an update of some recent purchases.

The two cardigans I ordered from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale arrived last week.  Immediately out of the box I preferred one over the other but I like them both.  I am considering keeping both! The one I am keeping without question is this one. I love the color, the feel, and the fit! It seems light enough for me to begin wearing now with a cami and later with other layers. Even though it seems on the pricey side to me it is worth it – the cost per wear will be mere pennies because I’ll reach for it so often!

The other one is less expensive but I like the fit of it and think I could use it as well. Part of me wishes it came in another color like navy blue. Right now I’m on the fence as to whether I’ll keep it or not, I am definitely leaning towards offering it a permanent place in my closet! I’m wearing a small in both of these cardigans.

I purchased these shorts at Loft with my birthday reward at the end of June. The colors are so pretty and they are so lightweight and silky. Since it will still be hot here for several more months I’ll wear these plenty and right now they are on super sale! They are available in plus sizes as well! There are so many great colors in these shorts they’ll work with lots of tops in my closet and probably yours too! Sorry, I did not get a photo of them but I will! I have already worn them a few times.

To round things out I have to share what I’ve recently ordered from Old Navy. Last year I had my eye on this jacket in the light pink color yet never ordered it. Once I saw it again this year I finally took the plunge. The other thing that helped push me over the edge to go ahead and order it was seeing it on my cute friend Gina who blogs at On the Daily Express. She recently styled the jacket 6 ways here. I had ordered mine the week before and couldn’t wait for it to arrive. I ordered it in a size medium and I think it may be too big. I’d like to try it in a small before returning it so I’ll have to head to Old Navy and hope they have it in the store. Do you think it looks a little boxy?

I also purchased a white button up (plus size option) in a size medium. I’m on the fence with it as well, it’s a little sheer. I think I’m looking for a sturdier fabric that won’t wrinkle. Sorry, I did not have the chance to get a photo.

I’m sort of stalking these raw edge camo pnats. I have a pair from Loft but they’re a little big. I was happy to see this gingham shirt on their site too. Gingham and camo look so good together! I’ll be sure to update you if I get the pants.

So that’s what I’ve purchased recently, how about you? There are so many great sales right now it’s hard to behave!
