OOTD #16: Flashback to Vacay + Mini Haul

Over the Summer I headed to Atlanta for a long weekend vacation. I went from a Thursday to a Sunday plus I took off that Wednesday before I left and Monday after my return from work. Being in Atlanta for 3 1/2 days was more than enough time and I was able to see and do a lot while I was there. The first day I enjoyed the luxury of the hotel in the pent house suite and took full advantage of the gym. That Friday I went took a tour of the Center for Civil and Human Rights and visited the gift shops of the Coca-Cola Factory and the College Football Hall of Fame. Although we did not rent a car, thankfully everything was in walking distance. Saturday I met with a friend that lives in the area and we went out for drinks and Mexican food. Talk about AMAZING!

I wanted to share my outfit and goodies that I purchased while I was away. The outfit that I wore during the day I went sightseeing was a pair of shorts from JCPenny that I purchased nearly 3 years ago that I barely wear and a new top that has a slit in the back from Forever 21. The top I featured in a haul which you can check out HERE.

The accessories that I wore were a pair of sandals from Charlotte Russe. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to style them when I purchased them, but they worked well with the outfit. My purse I had purchased from Aldo a while back and it looks like a camera and fits my Canon T4i PERFECTLY. I did take the lens off for it to fit, but most of the time it was around my neck. I loved the look. Simple, yet super cute. Check out my sandals in my Spring haul HERE.

As for what I purchased while on vacation, it wasn’t much. The College Football Hall of Fame didn’t have a great selection so I ended up with a wristband and a mousepad, yes a mousepad. From the Center for Civil and Human Rights the tour was amazing, but I only picked up a few post cards. From the Coca-Cola factory I was tempted to buy everything. Anything you could imagine from shirts to laptop cases, hats, etc. were covered in the Coca-Cola logo. I just purchased a surprise pack after buying gifts for my sisters. Lastly, it would be a touristy trip if I didn’t get a shirt that said Atlanta. Great trip, only downside, the never ending traffic. Beautiful airport as well.

BLACK FRIDAY 2014 HAUL

This has to be one of the smallest Black Friday shopping trips ever. Last year I purchased 15 movies for under $30 and this year I knew I had to make a stop at Walmart to see what other movies I could score. I did’t want to spend much as I am trying to put more in the bank instead of our the bank. I ended up with four movies: Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse plus Despicable Me for all under $10. I ended up heading over to F.Y.E to see if I could find the rest of the Twilight series, but I ended up getting Fast 6 for $7. Another collection complete. I headed over to Five Below and saw a cute iPad case for $3, originally $5. Only thing I hate bout the animal cases is that they are really never sized to the iPad. They’re typically too big.

Last stop I made was to the mall. H&M didn’t have anything I wanted and I would’ve stopped in Old Navy (50% off entire store), but I would’ve ended up buying more than necessary. Wet Seal had a Buy 1/Get 1 Free sale and I purchased a pair of boots for $40 and got the plaid shirt free. Expect a future OOTD with those items. I stopped in Charlotte Russe as well which had a buy 1/get 1 for $1 on heels and boots, but of course none would be in my size. They had a better selection that Wet Seal. Anywho, I didn’t break the bank and ended up spending /a little over $50. Not too shabby. Check out my pic below & be sure to follow me on Instagram @MusicMovingForward. HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEKEND!
