Their annual sale starts tomorrow, but I haven't previewed it since I was trying to be good about spending (my first mortgage payment is coming up...eeeeek!!!). I did, however, want to shop their existing sales section for some weekend casual wear. When I shop, I focus so much on pieces I can wear at work, that I oftentimes neglect to buy everyday casual items.
I've been looking for a striped shirt with the bunched sleeves for awhile. Something I can wear tucked in with a simple black skirt, or out with this skirt. Finally, I found one that's not too tight. I'm typically not a huge fan of my wider shoulders, but the neckline of this shirt actually made me think otherwise. The skirt was on sale made by Carlson. I'm not sure what to call this style...maybe a cargo skirt? I wanted something light weight and easy to wash. It came with a tie belt, which I'm going to remove when I wear it for real. This outfit is also perfect for vacation during the day time. A huge contender for when I go to Hawaii.
The fit is the exact same as mine. Boy, I feel kind of jipped as I paid full price for mine. They didn't have the pink at Nordies, but honestly I wouldn't mind owning the cream. It's rather cute!
Today I decided to wear my BCBG work shorts for the first time since I bought it in LA 4 years ago! I'm surprised it still fit! Work shorts (I'm not quite sure what the technical term is, but basically these are slacks, except with shorter legs) used to be in about 4 years ago. I remember working at Starbucks, and all my clients had them on. Paired with heels, they're very flattering. I haven't seen them much in the last couple of years, but I still love wearing them. I don't like wearing real shorts (I HATE my thighs), so these are the closest I get to wearing shorts.
The pink tank I'm wearing was an awesome sales score from the Uvillage sidewalk sale. $4.95! :) I wouldn't have gotten it otherwise, but at five bucks? Why not!
