Retail Therapy

I had a rough afternoon at work, so what better way to brighten up my mood than some retail therapy?  I did some serious damage today.  I headed out to find some cute fall clothes, and ended up with four bags of stuff from Old Navy and Marshalls.

How cute is this sweater "swing coat" that I got from Old Navy?  I actually got it in a cream color which was all they had in the store, but I'm seriously contemplating buying another color online.  It's so cute on and will be perfect for a chilly day!

I also got this sweater dress:

And this shirt in not one, not two, but THREE colors - it was only $8.00!  An eight dollar shirt speaks to my heart.  I couldn't resist.

And that wasn't all.  A couple other things made their way to the checkout as well.  Then I headed over to Marshalls for some more bargain hunting.  I came away with a pair of brown Nine West knee-high boots and two shirts (one was BCBG for only $25!).  In my defense, I've been looking for a pair of brown knee-high boots for the past several years and have never been able to find ones I like that aren't huge around my calves.  These were tight enough and only $49.99, so I feel like I got a really good deal!  And last but not least, a New Balance athletic zip-up jacket that should be great for running outside as it gets cooler (that's a legit need, right?).

Yikes.  Pocketbook pain tonight.  But at least I'm going to bed happy :)


  1. Great buys! I love that sweater dress!

  2. Retail therapy is the perfect way to brighten a day! The Old Navy jacket is adorable! I love shopping at Marshall's- there's always a bargain waiting for me there!
