recent fashion finds

Hello, hello and happy-almost-weekend! How is your week going? My brain is absolutely fried from midterms, so please excuse me if I ramble in this post. I haven’t had time for any sort of creative cooking, socializing, or anything even remotely exciting to share this week without potentially boring you to tears, BUT I did manage to wear some of my recent fashion finds over the past few weeks that I thought might be fun to share.

Although I don’t talk about fashion much on the blog,  it is truly one of my favorite topics, and putting together outfits is a top hobby of mine. However, being both a shopaholic and a student on a budget doesn’t quite mix…so whenever I shop, I make it my mission to find the best deals on the pieces that I love and/or cannot live without. As a female, I am positive that I am not alone in my love of clothing and accessories, so if you have any recent fashion finds or sales you’ve discovered, please share, too!

Find: Dress up-or-down earrings
Place: T.J. Maxx
Price: Clearance,  $6.00

Honestly, I’ve worn these earrings numerous times now and I’m still in love with them. They stand out on their own, no matter what you’re wearing. I’m not sure of the brand, otherwise I would list it!

Find: Alfani Oversized sweater
Place: Macy’s
Price: Clearance, $15.00
Similar style for spring:  Here
I snatched this up because of the great price. I don’t typically buy sweaters in February since spring is on my mind, but this was just too good of a deal to pass up.

Find: Natasha Infinity Scarf
Place: Nordstrom Rack
Price: $14.99
Similar style for spring: Here
I have a slight infinity scarf obsession…I wear one almost every day of the week. I think they are such a cute addition to nearly any outfit, and they do a great job of keeping my neck warm!

Find: Clover earrings
Place: T.J. Maxx
Price: $16.99

Similar style for spring: Here (I’m OBSESSED with this pair…and they’re on sale!)
I got these in my stocking for Christmas but I just recently wore them for the first time. I think they have the ability to add a dressy element to an otherwise simple outfit.

Find: Tory Burch flats
Place: Nordstrom Rack
Price: $159

Similar style for spring: Here (I adore this “Caroline” style, but they come with a hefty price tag)
Similar to my scarf obsession, I have a Tory Burch flat obsession, too. While her flats are costly, I truly believe they’re worth it. I’ve had a couple of my pairs for 2+ years, which is a great deal of time for a pair of flats. In my opinion, you truly get your money’s worth with Tory’s.  These are a birthday gift from my parents, so I’m anxiously awaiting being able to wear them next month!

Do you have any recent fashion finds/steals/deals?

Do you like reading fashion blogs?

Should I write about fashion more often?

  1. I love everything you picked out! The clover earrings and flats especially. I’ve been wanting a pair of Tory Burch flats forever but haven’t been able to convince myself to give over that much money. It’s only a matter of time lol. I’m going to try and check my Nordstrom Rack and see if they have any :) Great finds, girly!

  2. Don’t worry, I’ll happily steal your sweater for the Australian winter :P I’m on a hunt for winter sweaters since I totally can’t handle the cold.

    I’m obsessed with infinity scarfs too – I think I now have about 6. They take a plain boring top and make it more interesting, which is perfect – because lately, the only tops I can find that fit are plain boring tops!

    Those flats are totally cute! I’m too clumsy to wear white shoes haha.

  3. Merry, you just need to move back to Australia so we can be gym AND shopping buddies!
    I only have one pair of TB flats (black), but I’ve had them for 3 years now and they still look brand new! They hold up so well. Love those white ones from your parents!! I also have a pair of her sandals, and I wear them everywhere. Definitely worth the $!
    Really like those clover earrings, too :)
    Have a great weekend!!!

  4. I think you should absolutely write about fashion more, especially when you get good deals!! Maybe even have kim do a guest post for you?? I think I need to splurge and get a pair of Tory flats… I got Jack’s last year, which were pricey, but they’re my go-to sandals now (and I got another pair off Rue La La this year- just need warm enough weather to wear them!). I love that sweater! xoxo

  5. You did good! I love that you got most everything on clearance because I rarely pay full price. As for the Tory’s…. I feel like if they are comfortable and durable, they are worth every penny. I don’t have a pair, but I’m still on the hunt for a pair of flats that don’t cut into my ankles. I swear my flats hurt more than my 4 inch heels! I say yes to the fashion posts! I like your style and always like to see what other people score :) Have a good weekend, girly!! xo
