Nautical blue and white striped skater dress

I found some fun stuff on sale at H & M just over a week ago. I tried on a whole bunch of stuff and managed to leave with just two items. The summer sales are going strong right now, peeps. Sales and good deals are my jam, in case you haven’t figured that out yet.

This cute blue and white striped skater dress was one thing I decided to keep. It was only $3 people! Can you believe it??? I tried on a couple more skater dresses, but they were all really thin, threatening to be see through, so this one was the keeper.

A romper that was really cute once I got it on went to the side because it was so hard to put on. Then there was this super cute leopard print pleated tank top that was so fun and swingy I kept it even though it was only half off. Which was still less than $10, because this is H & M were talking about. They are all about affordable clothes in the first place, sale or no sale. More on the top next post. This dress and the fun top were the only things I kept from my try on session there. I could’ve taken photos of the rest of the stuff while there, but I didn’t so you’ll just have to know I kept the best stuff.

This fun leaf necklace was from Village Merchants, a fun consignment shop in Portland that my niece wanted to go to while they were passing through last weekend. I found more stuff there, too. But, I’ll fill you in on all that another time as well. I’m sure the clothing and jewelry will show up on here sooner rather than later.

 

The scarf in my hair was also from Village Merchants. The earrings were given to me and went with the nautical vibe of this outfit.

Stripes and flowers

Happy July everyone! I know, it’s halfway through the month, but I haven’t done a blog post yet this month, so I thought I’d say it anyway.

I went out shopping on 4th of July weekend and found some good deals at Ross and Marshall’s that I thought I’d share with y’all.

This Anne Klein skirt was only $13.99 on clearance at Ross. Whoohoo. I saw another striped skirt before I left that was only $10.99 regular price. I almost bought that instead, but you just can’t beat the quality of this Anne Klein skirt over the more cheaply made t-shirt material thin cotton skirt I thought of getting instead. That one was cute, but I decided to go with the better quality of this one.

And this shirt, though! I was admiring it when it was full price at the Marshall’s close to me, then just happened to spot it at another one a month or so down the road on clearance for only $10. Yes, please! Check out those cute floral details on the sleeves of this Kim & Cami tie front top.

The big asymmetrical stripes make a bold statement, while the florals add a softer feminine touch.

Also, the gold sandals are from Ross. Less than $15. Good deals are my jam!

We went to one of the historical houses in Portland to do this shoot, and it was packed because they were having a car show. We walked around a bit, took a few photos out back, then switched to a quieter historical house located in Troutdale. Much easier to do photos without the crowds.

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Happy shopping!
