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!
