So What Did I Buy?

Since Ashleigh so snarkily reminded me that I'm not physically moving to Alaska and I don't need arctic weather clothing, I took it to heart and didn't go crazy with sweaters.

And being that I have little time to run to Palm Beach to my normal shopping venues of Nordstrom, Saks, Lilly, Tory Burch etc. (okay, so I wasn't planning to spend THAT kind of money, but I can dream!), I stuck with White House Black Market, Target and Ann Taylor Loft.

Now I'm not one to buy something just for the sake of buying something, so if I don't absolutely love it, I will not buy it.  So, I spent a whopping 35 minutes trying to decide between two different sizes of the same pair of jeans at White House Black Market.

Here's what I picked up over the past couple days during lunch breaks.  I'm pretty happy with my choices. 

From White House Black Market, I purchased this striped keyhole top (keyhole on the back) and Blanc jeans (not black jeans, "blanc" jeans, which the word "blanc" means "white" in French, so not sure of the rationale here as they are clearly not white jeans).

I tried on this sweater at WHBM and LOVED it, but at $98.00 and it being a fairly heavy sweater that won't be worn often, I passed.  It would look SO cute with skinny jeans and black boots (which I don't have the boots....yet).

Between BHWM and the Loft was Old Navy.  I spied this cute little flannel shirt, soft as can be and scooped it up for $24.94.  Not a bad deal for a casual/lounging shirt.

At the Loft, I picked up this flattering peasant top and a preppy cable knit v-neck sweater.

And at Target, I picked up this cute grey sweater to wear with black leggings and my black Revas.

Now for the shocking part!  I purchased clogs!  Oh, yes I did!  Furry clogs at Target for $29.99 and they are comfy and super cute with cords though I don't see myself wearing them with anything but cords.  I won't wear them that often, so I didn't mind not spending a huge amount of money.

So, what do you think of my finds?  Not bad for some on-the-fly buys before our Thanksgiving trip.  I think I was able to spend money wisely while buying versatile items that I can wear both north and south.

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all! 
I'm bowing out for a few days but will see you the Monday after!


  1. I wasn't being snarky, I was just informing you of the climate in the area you are visiting :-).

    Also, blanc is for white. WHITE house black market. Hmmm... I wonder where that comes from?

    I love you!!

  2. I love that Target top! Super cute with skinnies and a scarf. Now I want to run BACK out to Target!

  3. SUPER cute! I need to some new Fall clothes :)

  4. You got such cute stuff! LOVE, love, love that WHBM striped top!

  5. I love WHBM. Very cute!
    Did you catch the Lilly Rue La La sale? I got a couple of things but nothing major.

  6. I really like the sweater that you passed on, but way to go thinking about your purchase! The one from Target is super cute, too. I might have to go find it. ;)
