Since the weather is starting to get warm and there have been some major spring sales, I’ve been doing a little shopping to update my wardrobe for the new season. Today I wanted to share with you guys some of the things I’ve bought recently!

I bought this dress recently for my bridal shower! I got it from ModCloth, who always has amazing dresses. I was stuck between this pink paisley dress and this sleeveless maxi dress. I went with the paisley one because the shower was in March and I figured it would still be a little brisk out. The fit is fantastic, as is the material. Even though I’m fairly tall, it was plenty long enough!


I’ve been in the market for a solid pair of black flats. This pair from Target does the trick and was incredible affordable! They’re super comfortable, so I’m not dying to get my shoes off at the end of the day.

Women's Xhilaration® Shae Ballet Flat - Assorted Colors

Dave and I needed to pick up some goodies for our honeymoon to Ireland. Since it rains a ton there, we made sure to pick up rain jackets and hats to keep us warm and dry. We aren’t going to let a little rain put a damper on our vacation!

While we were at the outlet mall to get raincoats at Columbia, we were lucky enough to catch a few more sales going on! I was able to get some pieces marked way down at Banana Republic, Loft, and Maurices.

I LOVE this top and these sandals from Maurices. The bright color of the top just jumped out at me and I had to have it!



The sales going on at Banana Republic on the first day of spring were absolutely nuts. I got was able to get this striped dress and this button-down blouse for a steal!



The last store I hit was Loft. They also had some great sales. I absolutely fell in love with this lace top.

Under $100 Casual Friday Outifts

Shopping for clothing can be frustrating. The experience usually goes something like this: I’m out shopping and I find a great top. What, it’s on sale? Even better! Wow, it’s my lucky day! But do I have anything to go with it? Not really. I should probably get a skirt to pair with it. And wow, none of my shoes would look good with this top! I really want the top, so I guess I’m getting the skirt and shoes too. Are the skirt and shoes on sale? Of course not.

I’m sure you’ve all been there. I just went from buying a top on sale for a great deal to spending way more than I wanted for an outfit. Oh well, I won’t tell Dave (just kidding).

Today I’m trying to do my small part to rectify this internal battle. Today I’ve thrown together three outfits for you that come in at less than $100, accounting for all pieces. Most of them come from a few of my favorite low-priced clothing stores. These outfits are ideal outfits for a casual Friday at work!

Casual Friday Outfit #1

This outfit totals $85.33…for four pieces. If that’s not a great deal, I don’t know what is. Normally you’d be hard-pressed to find just a pair of boots for that price. Here’s the breakdown for you:

Top: $29.95 | Jeans: $19.95 | Boots: $17.48 | Scarf: $17.95

Casual Friday Outfit #2

This outfit, also four pieces, comes in at a grand total of $93.80. The shoes are the heavy hitter here, but the jeans are a crazy bargain. Here’s the breakdown:

Top: $17.95 | Jeans: $9.95 | Shoes: $59.95 | Necklace: $5.95

Casual Friday Outfit #3

The final outfit, the cheapest of the three, comes primarily from my favorite store for buying low-priced clothing (Maurices). It totals just $78. Here’s the breakdown:

Top: $24 | Jeans: $20 | Shoes: $34
