Spring Sale Scores

Hey all...happy hump day!  Yesterday was an emotional filled day.  I woke up in the morning anticipating for lunch time so that I can hop on over to the Bravern Anthro store to check out what's on sale.  I love that particular store because there's minimal customers but still enough sales people to make the experience a wonderful one.  And they always seem to have all sizes in stock.  Without much further ado, here are my purchases:
This top was adorable, the ruffle detail wasn't too overwhelming, the fit was slimming, and the blue stripes added something extra to the shirt.  It's a little sheer, but I can always wear a cami underneath it.  I can see myself pairing this with a pink wool skirt I have that's old from LOFT.  I've been wanting to find something that matched better with that skirt for a while so I'm glad I found this cute little blouse!

I'm in love with yellow right just makes me happy and it's the perfect color for spring in this cloudy, gray city.  I have a lot of yellow cardigans and outside layering pieces, but not enough tanks and shells for inner pieces.  So when this baby went on sale, I had to have it for my collection.  Can't wait to sport this with a gray or blue or white or pink cardi.  A lot of pieces in my closet will match this. 

Who let the dawgs out...woot woot woot woot!  Purple and gold...the colors of my alma mater...the University of Washington Huskies.  Hollah for the Dawgs, ya'll!  Despite reviews online saying the fabric feels a bit flimsy and cheap, I totally disagree.  I love this fabric because it's thin and smooth to the skin.  I also didn't mind that it did not have a side zipper, putting this on and taking it off wasn't difficult at all.  I wore this today so see below for my OOTD.

OMG I can't say enough about this belt.  I know I've been going on and on about the snakebite belt (which I still love, btw and will be buying them in multiple colors once they are back in stores), but this is a different type of love.  I think it's so feminine looking and after seeing it on Tara here, I just wanted it badly to pair with my Beda dress and mint colored cardi for my engagement photos this weekend.  I tried on the outfit last night and I can't wait to take pics in it.

How cute are these.  These, and the belt above, weren't on sale but come on!  These little posts matches perfectly with my beda engagement outfit.  Anthro has a lot of cute flower post earrings right now and I just want them all!  But I thought I'd start with this one...and boy...I'm SOOO in love. 

Well, those were my purchases yesterday.  These items only cost me around $100 because I had a gift certificate and a return.  So, all in all, a great way to welcome spring with this sale event.  Thank you, Anthro! 

Now for my mentioned above, I wore the Serengeti dress today.  I just love it.  All my coworkers who were Huskies commented on the dress and one girl even high fived me.  Now a OOTD that gets a high five is one to remember!
