What I'm Loving Wednesday - Shopping Edition

Happy Wednesday aka my Friday since I'm heading to SoCal TOMORROW!!!! Woo Hoo!

But before my mini-vacation I'm back to share with you my latest loves. This weekend I went to the mall. I love to shop but I really have to be in the mood. Often I will only go to one store and be done. This time I had several errands/returns/etc that I wanted to get done and fortunately I was in the mood for it and had such a successful mall adventure. So all my loves are from that one afternoon. Take a look!

I'm loving these new clothes from The Limited!
I had ordered a bunch of stuff online from The Limited a few weeks ago. The reason I ordered more than I "needed" was because I refuse to pay for shipping so I bought enough to get free shipping. Unfortunately I didn't like this shirt or a pair of pants so I needed to return both.

Lucky for me the entire store was 40% off and I had two $25 savings cards from when I shopped online. Those are the only "coupons" you can use in combination with a sale which means AWESOME savings.

So I got the three things above for $56.11! Can you believe that?! A dress and two shirts for just over fifty bucks. Such a steal. The original total was $176.85 which means I saved $120.74. You can't beat their sales. I never pay full price for anything I buy there!

The photos don't do these three items justice. The shirt on the left will look so cute with leggings. It has a great hem line. The middle shirt is so soft and cozy - I bought it specifically to take to CA. The dress is so cute and is perfect for Emily's bridal shower at the end of the month (on my birthday actually). It will likely still be freezing so it will be great with black tights and tall black boots if necessary!

I'm loving the (new to me) store Charming Charlie.
This store is my dream come true. Purses, necklaces, scarves and more! I could have easily bought ten things but I only bought this gold purse which was on sale so I got for a great price. I love cross body bags and this one is so pretty! I can't wait to use it - oh and check out the inside too.

There were a few necklaces I really wanted but I resisted and didn't buy them because we all know I have WAY too many necklaces. Plus I was looking for something lavender to wear with the dress above but they didn't have anything.

Have you heard of this store? If you have one near you run don't walk and check it out!!!

I'm loving this Almond Joy cupcake I got at Cupcake Charlie's (another new place at the Natick Mall).
 I gave up candy (and soda) for Lent but an Almond Joy cupcake doesn't count as candy. Haha. It was SO good and I'm glad that this place isn't too close to my house or I would be in trouble.

I'm loving my new glasses!
I went to the eye doctor last month and my vision had changed a little so the doctor gave me a new prescription. I needed new glasses anyway since mine were four years old and had a scratch. I got Coach glasses and I really like them. They are similar to my old ones but a little bigger and a different color blue on the inside. Plus I can see so much better! Yay!

During my shopping trip I also tried on Hunter boots for the first time. I've wanted a pair for two years but they are just so expensive. I liked them when I tried them on but I just can't pull the trigger. Oh and I can't decide what color I would get - be practical and get grey or be fun and get. . . . so for now I remain Hunterless. I think I deserve a pair after this CRAPPY winter in Boston. . .

Ok now it is your turn. What are you loving this week?

  4. I LOVE your new clothes. Hmmm, I need to visit so I can borrow them while I'm there (seeing that is what I did last time). Lol. :) I've only shopped at the Limited once when I bought a gift for a friend. Maybe I should go back and look around. Super cute stuff!!

  5. Hooray for not paying full price! You scored some great deals!
    As for the Hunters, I was the same way! I got mine with at a crazy discount through Gilt. They aren't on there all the time, but I ahve seen them there several times. Good luck! :

  8. I like the first top. The cupcake sounds divine.

  9. Ooo I've never heard of Charming Charlie, I feel like my bank account is going to take a hit in the near future. I'm loving your new glasses! I have to go to the optometrist soon. I'm overdue for a new contact prescription. I hate going though. I always feel stupid when I can't tell the difference between 1 and 2 or A and B.
