Monday 7.5

I hope you all had a great holiday! On Saturday, I hit up the 4th of July sales with my expert bargain shopping Mom. Nothing my mom loves more than a bargain--so you can guess I inherited that trait! We went to 3 department stores: Belk's, Dillard's and JC Penney's. My mom typically shops for clothes and linens not just for her and my dad, but for a lot of our family still in the Philippines. She scored some great deals! She also gifted me a few items below:

On sale at Belk's for $15. Regular price $60! They were 50% off then Belk's had an additional 50% off on al their sale items! Thanks for Andie for the tip on the awesome sale at Belk's! My mom also bought J a pair of seersucker light blue shorts. I'm sure he will be debuting them on here soon :). They were regularly $50, on sale for $10!!!

This dress was on sale at Dillard's for $20.99. It was already marked down to $29.00 then We got an additional 30% off! Thanks to Kari for the tip on the Dillard's sale!!

Yesterday, we spent the 4th with friends for a BBQ/Lawn Game Olympics. It was so much fun! We did not fare so well, but it was fun! We played Cornhole, Washer Pitching (also known as "holey"), and Fricket. There was also Ladder Ball (or Ladder Golf) but I didn't try that one!

Today has been very low-key, by design. We're just watching TV and playing "Words with Friends" against each other. I'm reading "Love Walked In" by Maria de los Santos right now, on and off throughout the day. I did make it out to run a quick errand, so I actually have an Outfit of the Day!

Polo: Lilly Pullitzer, via TJ Maxx
Skirt: ATL
Sandals: Payless
Purse: Lilly Pullitzer, via Rue lala

My errand involved me going to Micheal's to purchase a frame. I can't help but stop by the dollar section. They have some great finds! I got these two journals for $1 a piece. I like to keep a journal in my purse to jot down lists, notes etc.

I'm going to enjoy the rest of my 3-day weekend! I hope you all are doing the same :)


  1. Love the Dilliards dress! I am terrible at bargain shopping or maybe just not patient enough! Hope you had a great weekend1

  2. I can't resist the Michael's $1 section either :o) Nice sale scores!

  3. Love your new items. I enjoyed reading Love Walked In. And those notepads are too cute. Have a great week!

  4. cute cute shoes! I am thinking I totally skipped over the shoes and I should have shopped for those, too! LOL

    What cute little wedges!
