I hope that everyone had a great week! I was off from work, so I was able to get a *ton* of personal stuff done + really organize myself for the New Year. 🙂 With that said…my outfits weren’t all that exciting LOL.
I hope that you all had the most wonderful + relaxing Thanksgiving holiday with your friends + families! I know that I did. 🙂 I’m happy to be back with Week 11 of my #WIWTW series! I’m honestly enjoying every minute, but it makes me realize how quickly time is going by. I wish life would slow down just a little bit. Especially over the next month!
I just want to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who checked out my first #WIWTW post! I received such wonderful feedback from family, friends, and fellow bloggers that it’s not only keeping me motivated to continue on with this series, but it’s keeping me really excited as well!
With that said, I’m happy to bring you my outfits from the past week. Enjoy!
So I found this post from August in my drafts and realized that I never published it! Whoops!
Better late than never. Enjoy 🙂 —->
I’d say that this is the saddest, yet most exciting time of the year for most ladies. Summer is coming to an end (which is down right depressing), but Fall & it’s phenomenal fashion is just around the corner!
I took a mini shopping trip over the weekend to some of my favorite go-to bargain spots. I wasn’t in the mood to go spending money for the heck of it, so I told myself that I would only pick up things that I absolutely loved, that were suitable for work, and that would be good assets to my wardrobe!
I rarely go to the mall, but I had to make a trip to the Apple store. While I was there, I figured I would stop by Forever21 and H&M. I tried on a few things that I really liked, but didn’t meet my criteria for purchase – so I decided to sit on them and return another time if they stayed on my mind. Glad I did, because I kind of forgot about them already lol.
However, I did need a new tote for my laptop, and lucked out at H&M!
I’ve been on the hunt for fitted slacks – I always buy pairs that are too long & need to be hemmed (which I never do) so straight legged, ankle pants are my new go-to! I stopped by TJ’s to peruse their selection and found this great pair of navy blue Cynthia Rowley slacks. I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again – Cynthia Rowley designs are amazing! The quality, the fabrics, the fit! I swear. Everything I try on feels as though it was tailored just for me.
Next to TJ’s is one of my high school faves, Mandees! I’m starting to feel a little too old for this store, but the cute & affordable finds keep driving me in!
I’m really excited about my finds & the upcoming Fall season! I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes open & picking up some more pieces here & there!
I did some serious Fall shopping a couple of weeks ago, included in that spree was some shoe shopping. I went to Mandees; I hadn’t been there in a while, but they are always good for finding fabulous, and affordable shoes! Lucky for me, they were having a buy one, get one half off sale, so I decided to stock up for the season!
Let me start by sharing some depressing news…lately I’ve been having a harder time wearing heels, my feet just don’t enjoy them like they used to *MAJOR SIGH*. Not only do heels feel sexier and more fun than flats, but they give me an extra few inches to my already miniature 5′ .5″ self. While I’m not swearing them off altogether, I decided it was time to invest in some comfortable flats.
Fortunately, I found a few adorable pairs:
Obviously during a BOGO, I couldn’t ignore the heels! So I picked up a few pairs that will serve me well.
Naturally I had to peruse the accessories…
Mandees had so many great pumps, flats and boots! I need to get back ASAP and pick up a few other pairs I had been eyeing… something about taking multiple trips to the same store, and making multiple purchases makes spending money not as bad.
What are you wearing on your feet this season? Let me know where you found some great Fall shoes!

I just changed my polish color this afternoon…stay tuned for that pic! 😉
