Recent shopping finds

I tend to go through major shopping droughts. I think our wallet enjoys it because I live in workout clothes and get my monthly StitchFix box -which doesn’t feel like “real” shopping, haha- but then all of a sudden, there will be an avalanche of awesome deals and… things happen. Since I always love when fellow bloggers tell me about a great deals or recent shopping finds, so I figured I’d share some of the latest and greatest.

Here are some fun things I’ve found lately:

Shopping finds

1.) The Mason Bar Company glass tumbler

I love drinking fresh juices, smoothies and iced coffee out of glass jars, and especially love that this one has a lid with a straw. It’s a great portable option!

2.) Dillard’s dress and skirt.

I got the above BCBGeneration dress for $39 (!) and the maxi skirt was $20 after the sale (everything was marked down and then an additional 30% off. Can’t find links to either, but might be worth checking out your local store if they’re having a similar sale). I can’t wait to wear the dress for a date night, and maxi skirts are basically fancy sweatpants. So comfy 🙂

3.) A J copycat outfit. When I saw the ikat shorts with the fun tunic, I decided to check out the links online. The shorts were $17 and the tunic was $30 (including shipping- when I went to check out it automatically added another discount). Score! 

4.) Hautelook TART maxi dress. I’m at the point right now where I want to find things that will easily transition into fall, so this will look cute with a sweater. It was a little pricier ($89) but I’ll wear it a lot. I also got Livi a pair of fall boots in the fall boot sale for $15, and they’re absolute adorable.

Any awesome shopping finds lately? I still need to take my thrifted goodies to the seamstress so I can wear them. I’ve also received a couple of requests for a post with my latest Stitch Fix box, so stay tuned for one of those on the Fahsion page later this week.

    LOVE the mason jar tumbler! Mason jars are so “in” haha but this one with the straw is so cute. Hoping they ship to Canada! Fingers crossed.

    Dillards always has the BEST deals on BCBG! Sometimes it’s the same stock that is full priced in the regular BCBG store. Great finds – I want the maxi skirt!

    Ooh I love the maxi dress! I have seen so many cute ones on other people lately, but whenever I’m in the stores I never seem to find one that quite suits me. The hunt continues! I did however recently buy a huge tub of satsuma body butter from the Body Shop because it reminds me of being a kid. I’ve always loved that scent!

    Oooohhh what a cool glass tumbler! I’m always on the lookout for deals when shopping. I’ve been keeping my eye out for a good price on a maxi dress. That one is so cute!

    I have a dress from Tart, the material is heavenly! I think it’s worth the money. That dress is really pretty!

    Love all of your finds! I actually just got back from TJ Maxx an hour ago and got 6 awesome items for just over $100! Finding bargains make shopping all the more fun 🙂

    I am obsessed with those mason jars. My friend refused to spend money on them and decided to make her own. They’re not that difficult to make so I need to plan for a DIY day to make them. 🙂

    I used assorted mason jars wrapped in colorful paper as center pieces for my wedding!! Can’t wait to hear about the stitch fix review. That teal shirt is beautiful!!!!!
