I’m not sure about you but this time of the year when events seem to crop up like weeds I start to feel the need for an organization overhaul. I’ve sourced up some great free printable to do lists to help you plan and get organized. I hope you find this helpful too and feel free to share your favourites in the comment section or via social media using #settingSAILintoOrganization
Hello all! Here’s an update on what I bought this month in preparation for fall and some closet updates. My favourite purchase would have to be the shoulder-cut-out sweater(s) I bought. That’s right, I bought two! Guilty! I loved it beige so much that I ended up also buying it in a dull purple colour as well. I’m also a BIG fan of the midi pleated skirt that’s gained total popularity these days. I was planning on buying just a black version, but when I saw it in blush pink as well I decided to pull the trigger. Not only as these amazing for work, they’re uber comfortable too. I’ve been styling them with a simple t-shirt as mine have a bit of sheen to them. I also found them at Urban Planet at a steal for $20 each! I also scored a hunter green puff vest from Old Navy on a sale day for $15 – score! A few other items included a beautiful leather pair of pointed toe pumps from Zara that will replace the super cheap pair of ballet flats that I actually tossed one day this week after coming home from work in them. (Yes, they were that bad). I also picked up a water-proof jacket by North Face as my older water proof jacket proved totally unreliable thanks to many previous miles of wear on our honeymoon. I scored this one for 25% off today at EuropeBound! They’re having a sale today and tomorrow, so check them out if you’re in need of some upgrades. Lastly, while W hates it, I scored a super cute “Good vibes” sequined lettered pillow for our living room. All I can say is… at least it’s just one?
So, if you’re like me you seem to find yourself “ooo-ing” over beautiful (expensive) shoes constantly, trying to persuade yourself to not make the purchase to only be slammed to a halt thanks to a massive price tag and/or “sold out!” surprise when you actually balls up to make a purchase, card in hand. Well today is a good day because today I’m going to share with you how I purchased the latest shoe I’ve been craving (for truthfully a few years now) and how I did it under budget! Welcome to today’s “Steals and Deals” post!
Thanks to many outrageously stylish bloggers (see above) I have been infatuated with the oh-so-cool Isabel Marant Jaeryn Eyelet Velvet Sandals. Perfect with jean shorts or a lace dress these block heeled sandals screamed what many beautiful shoes can’t even say for a moment – “COMFORTABLE CHIC!” So when, I decided that it was time to pull the trigger, I began to start checking the internet for steals and deals.
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to share with you some awesome deal for the designer pair, but I can boast about the best knock off version that I’m happy to say will be the proud owner of not one, but two pairs – one in both colours, of course.
Be sure to stay tuned for more editions of “Steals and Deals” and please share in the comments what you’re on the hunt for next.
What’s on your “crave” shopping hit list these days?
