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

April Shopping Haul: Spring Style With Kohl’s

I’m NOT typically one to shop at Kohl’s for clothing.  However, I popped in there last week on a mission to find semi-affordable bedding, when I was derailed by an eye-catching floral kimono.  Kimonos are trending right now and I happened not to own one, so I decided to try it out, and of course found a few other things in the process.  Without further ado, I give you my (accidental but worthwhile) Kohl’s shopping haul… p.s. Please forgive the crazy wind that was blowing when we snapped these pics!

Items 1 & 2: Mudd “Chiffon Kimono” & “Core Cami” (I paid $24.99 & $14.99 )
I knew I needed the kimono because I seriously fell in love with this print, and I’m into lightweight, flowy pieces right now.  I happened to spot a matching tank, and liked the idea of wearing them both with some summery black pants.  Styled here with a JewelMint beaded necklace and lace flares from Nightcap.

Item 3: My Michelle “Geometric High-Low Tank” (I paid $25.99 )
Again, I was drawn to the colors/print, and even though this isn’t a to-die-for piece, it’s very nice quality for the price.  I like the fishtail back, and would most likely wear this with a structured blazer for a fun business casual ensemble.  Styled here with a Forever 21 choker, JewelMint pendant necklace, and BaubleBar cuff.

Item 4: Joe B “Border Print Wide Leg Pants” (I paid $24.99 )
I’m obsessed with these lightweight, high-waisted palazzo pants!!  The rayon fabric is airy and breathable, perfect when the weather heats up.  The high waist creates the illusion of a long and lean silhouette, ideal to pair with a trendy crop top.  And of course I looooove the colorful border print.  Note that the stock photo does not do these justice, and my snaps are more true to color.  Styled here with a JewelMint necklace, vintage crop top, and BCBgeneration wedges.

Items 5 & 6: So Rad “Ponte Crop Tank” & “Crepe Printed Midi Skirt” (I paid $11.99 & 16.99 )
Tbh, I’ve had my eyes peeled for a matching top/skirt set for a while now. Most of the ones I’ve liked were a bit outside my budget, and a lot of the cheaper styles weren’t doing it for me.  This set turned out to be an ultra cheap, but still relatively chic option.  I adore the pale minty green with black and white palm print!  Styled here with CRAP Eyewear sunnies, a vintage necklace, and Jessica Simpson wedge sandals.

Sooooo seriously, the crazy part is that I paid less than $120 for ALL of these items.  That’s nearly a whole new spring wardrobe for the price of like one item!  And even though most of these pieces are on the trendier side, I don’t mind because I love the colors/prints regardless, and I know they’ll see wear throughout this spring and summer.

Annnnnnnd btw, did you know Michelle Smith of Milly is doing a collab with Kohl’s?!  Can you even believe it?  The collection is in stores April 23rd, but you can preview it here!
