T.J.Maxx Mini Shopping Haul

Anyone who knows me (or follows this blog) knows that I’m a huge fan of deals.  I don’t like paying full price for anything if I can help it.  Often times that involves trolling my favorite brands for sales, but sometimes stores like T.J.Maxx come in handy too!  There’s a pretty nice T.J.Maxx right nearby, and I popped in over the weekend to scoop up some new soaps and such.  Of course I walked out with a bit more than planned, but I didn’t spend much at all, so it worked out perfectly.

I specifically went shopping to pick up some hand soap and body wash.  I like fancy hand soap for the bathrooms and I prefer organic or all natural body wash (which amazingly T.J. stocks).  I picked up two pretty bottles of hand soap and some natural argan oil body wash that smells delicious.  I also got a bottle of Bliss Fabulous Foaming Body Wash (normally $20 ) for $8!  And then I got tempted in the checkout line by this adorable “bee happy” mug.  I almost didn’t grab it, but for $2.99 it was too cute, and given how much coffee I drink, definitely worth it.

Of course, I had to scout out the shoes and handbags (just can’t help myself).  Glad I did because I found a lovely pale minty green Nicole Miller Handbag for $35 (original price $105) and an adorable pair of Lucky Brand espadrilles for $25 (original price $69).  Finally, I spotted this tee shirt which couldn’t be ignored because the statement is just too true.  I love how the tee, handbag, and flats all coordinate, and I plan to style a look with all three sometime soon.

Just in case you don’t make it into T.J.Maxx anytime soon (not to mention each one stocks different merch), here are some similar products available online: Coconut Vanilla Organic Hand Soap / Argan Oil Body Wash / Beehive Mug / Minty Bag / Coffee Tee

Dressing For Weird Weather

Honestly, our weather has been soooo weird lately. By mid May it’s usually quite warm, but we’ve been getting cold spells, and rain, and all sorts. A few weeks ago it was super hot and I scooped up these lovely lightweight palazzo pants and at a local shop called Nectar. They’re very fine and flowy and great for the heat, and normally I would wear them with a summery top. But given the current wind chill, I decided to style them for a slightly cooler setting. The top is a boxy cropped sweater that I purchased at H&M around the holidays last year. I’m sure the embellishments are meant to mimic snowflakes, but not so obviously that I wouldn’t wear it in spring. I like the way the two patterns work together. Since palazzo pants call for heels (especially if you’re short) I opted for some punchy blue sandals for a fun twist. Kept my accessories simple with some fabulous earrings, and voila! This look is the perfect blend of warm and cool to accommodate the uncertain weather.
