I love shopping in the US: prices are cheaper and there’s more selection than in Canadian stores. As we spent most of our time on the road, I only went in to a few shops…but I found a LOT of good things!
|Loving my new arm candy|
|Target watch (similar in orange) / TJ Maxx & J.Crew Factory Bracelets / J. Crew Factory Necklace / La Mer Watch|
The watches are from Target. The mint one is a fun & cheerful
piece for the summer. I’ve always loved the wrap & chain style of La Mer watches (I’d seen them on Andi’s blog and Pinterest). Since it was
on clearance for less than $25 I HAD to pick it up.
The bracelets with semi-precious stones & rose gold charms are from TJ Maxx – love how sparkly they are!
The Crystal Cupcake necklace in Creme de Menthe is also from J.Crew factory…since Emerald
is one of the pantone colors of the year, I thought this would be a
pretty way to incorporate it into my spring wardrobe.
HANDBAGS & ACCESSORIES:
I wanted to buy a colorful satchel like this from Target, but they were sold out. I did find this cross-body bag instead – love the classic colors and the faux-ostrich material.
The fuchsia wristlet is also from Target – it has a smartphone pocket and slots for credit cards. It’s a lovely sleek piece for when you want to carry only the essentials.
I was looking for a smaller everyday wallet. This coach wallet is a bit LOGO-tastic but I loved the white flower print – and I’m hoping the coated canvas material means that it will be easy to keep clean.
The pink oversized GUESS sunglasses were $20 at TJ Maxx. It’s hard to find flattering sunglasses when you need them – so I like to stock up on cute & affordable back-ups when I find them.
|J. Crew Factory top / Target lace top / Spanx / Mint & Faded Target denim|
The lace peplum top was an impulse buy from Target – I love the combination of classic (cream lace) and trendy (peplum waist).
I’ve read rave reviews about Target denim – so I picked up these mint skinnies (now on sale for half price!) and these faded boyfriend ones. I wish I had seen these Mossimo supply jeans as I’ve heard they fit better.
My last purchase was an essential one – I can’t live without my Spanx…they suck everything in and make clothes look better on. I’ve tried several different styles over the years and I can ONLY recommend the high-waisted mid-thigh shapers. The mid-waisted version leaves me with a lumpy muffin top and the brief-style version doesn’t suck me in enough.
Hope you liked seeing my vacation haul – which item do you like the best?
