Back at it with another post on the blog. This past week has been life changing (which I’ll touch on at another time). I’ve been shopping quite a bit over the last few weeks and so it’s time for a haul. I love clearance racks and finding deals and I don’t see the harm in sharing what I find.
As always, be sure to click the links throughout this post for related posts and links to purchase items/similar styles featured.
Hey everyone and welcome to another post here on the blog. I recently went on vacay to visit family and I couldn’t resist shopping a little. Plus, I finished grad school the week I was away, with an A in my last class, so that’s justification to TREAT MYSELF!

Spring has officially arrived, but living in the tri-state, we have haven’t had much of a winter. On Christmas the weather was in the 60s and we’ve only had one major snowstorm. I know, that should be a good thing right? This is not typical weather as a Jersey girl. This time last year I had been out of work at least one day a week for snow. The tides have truly turned over the course of the year. Let’s get into my staples for spring.Be sure to click all the highlighted links for related posts or to purchase items mentioned.
1.Denim| I thrifted a denim shirt last summer and I absolutely love it. I love the look of denim on denim. It wasn’t always a favorite of mine, but light wash denim paired together looks amazing. In addition to this shirt I love my denim jacket that I purchased from Forever 21 years ago. Denim just screams jeans and while I’m on the hunt for a ripped pair, my shirt and jacket will due. Purchase similar styles below:
2.Canvas Sneakers | I am no sneaker head although there are shoes I’d like to add to my collection. I am a sucker for canvas sneakers which you can find just about anywhere in a variety of colors and prints. I love to buy mine printed because they become an instant accessory to an outfit. While some stand out more than others I love a mixture of bold and muted prints. A muted print to me is a more classic floral. I have purchased mine from H&M & Charlotte Russe. I would recommend searching in store for more of a variety, but similar styles are listed below:
3. High-Top Converse | I absolutely love my converse and although I purchased the high-tops, I love rolling them down. With the weather getting warmer I have ditched my Timbs and I have been wearing these on a daily basis. I would love a white pair maybe even pink, maybe. Purchase HERE.
4. Graphic Tees | While this could be a year round staple, I love rocking my graphic tees in the spring. Fall is more for layering and winter is about being cozy. Summer time, I’m all about my tanks. Yet in the Spring, I find myself buying graphic tees and I love all types. I usually buy mine from either Spencers or Hot Topic, depending on the selection, when they have the buy 1 get 1 50% off. Don’t spend a lot of money on them, try thrifting. I have all types from comics to wrestling, music, and even the touristy ones. I don’t mind the cheesy graphic tee and I can’t wait to add more to my collection. Below are links to my favorite places to buy them:
There’s not much that I need in my wardrobe, but there are pieces that I’ve added just for the season. I don’t expect these to last forever, but they were affordable so I picked up a few items. Check out my Spring Hauls from last year below:
As for this year, I took advantage of the Memorial Day Weekend sales and I’m happy with what I’ve picked up. Last year I shopped just to shop, but this year I was more particular on basics that I actually did need and a few extras. Click the links below to for similar items to what I’ve purchased.
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMER! I was actually pretty productive today as I have begun to plan an entrepreneurial series for the fall as well as a lot of DIYs coming this summer! I will keep you all posted, of course. Although it’s the first day of summer a lot of my staples are in the laundry so I had to pick through my closet for an outfit. Aside from my meeting I had a Panera lunch with my bestie as well as perusing AC Moore & Ikea. Be sure to stay tuned for details on the projects I’m working on. In the meantime, check it out below and click the links for similar items I could find.
I decided I’d share my Easter outfit of the day. I hope that you all enjoy your Sunday and are ready for the new week! Be sure to check out my Casual OOTD from yesterday here. Also be sure to click the links within the pictures.
I had initially planned on wearing this:
BUT since the weather would below 50 degrees I decided on a pants & blazer ensemble instead and keep the accessories/makeup I had originally planned.
