I Should Be Working, But I'd Rather Be Shopping

It's time for a little shopping break. Perhaps you are all shopped out from the holidays, but ladies, that doesn't mean you can't look. Just don't blame me if it results in a purchase, I have enough blame for now with a recent buy.

Xhilaration Pleated Button-Up Skirt, $17.99, available here

I stopped by my local Target yesterday to see what was new on the racks and pick up some paper towels when I spotted this little number and was immediately smitten. It's hard to tell in this pic, but there are cute little bicycles on it. I thought this was certainly something that Anthropologie might have on their racks but at a price that would be five times more. Although I've been on a shopping hiatus, this skirt jumped in my bag and went home with me. It also comes in a navy blue/purple key print and several solid colors.

Cover Girl Blast Flipstick Lipcolor, $8.99, available here

Speaking of Target, I almost got sucked in by one of their beauty end caps. Cover Girl has a product that's two lip colors in one little tube. They are designed to be worn separately or you can mix the two colors for a new shade. Pretty much three colors in one tube, I'm sold!! Now I just have to figure out what color(s) to get and add to my already stuffed make-up bag.

Forever 21 Scalloped Bib Necklace, $14.80, available here

A fellow fashion blogger, posted some of her recent Forever 21 scores and this bright number was one of them. I immediately went to find it on their website because this necklace is pretty special. Neon, elegant design and a bargain. Sounds like a winner in my book!

Banana Republic Polka Dot Trench $150.00, available here

I walked past Banana Republic recently and saw this in the window. It had me at hello!! Although, I already have two trench coats (tan and black), I think I can make an exception for this one since it is different, right? There's also a cute, similar version at Anthropologie that I'm in love with too. The question is, shall this be a birthday treat and which one?? Decisions, decisions!

Are you all shopped out from the holidays? Have you found anything that's caught your eye recently?


  1. That bicycle skirt is adorable! Are you saving up for Jason Wu?!

  2. Oh I totally want to try that Cover Girl lipstick! Cute skirt and you are so right, veery Anthropologie.

  3. I'm already planning a trip to Target to get that lipstick. There are just too many to choose though!!

  4. I am definitely making plans to purchase some Jason Wu goodies!!

  5. I am NEVER all shopped out....its seems that the only thing that I run out of is the money to shop.... :)


  6. There's no way I could be shopped out! With all the amazing sales going on, I think I'm just beginning. I saw a few fun sweaters at Old Navy (hello polka dots!) and I can't wait to get my hands on a pair of mint green jeans. It's barely winter and I'm already planning for Spring!

  8. Shopped out? HAHAHA! XD Just kidding -- my spending has definitely slowed down after the holidays, but I still pick up a few things here and there. The bicycle skirt is SO CUTE, and I love the F21 necklace!
