Save your gift cards for a rainy day!

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but last month was a little crazy! During that month, I decided to use a few of my gift cards that I received for my birthday and Christmas. I was feeling a little down one Saturday and decided retail therapy was the only way to change my mood around. I was right, it worked. It always does and below you can find a few of the things I picked up.

My first stop was Express. I love Express and I’m pretty sure Express loves me too. I’m always there and they always send me these amazing coupons plus since I racked up a bunch of points for being an A-List member, I received a nice little gift card. I decided to take these pieces home with me and put them to good use!

I’m saving the Kiss Me shirt for St. Patrick’s Day and the dress for a special night, but the two shirts in the middle have already been out on the town. I used the light blue shirt for a night out with my girls and covered it with a cute animal print scarf. I used the hot pink shirt with a black blazer and scarf for a busy Sunday with my family.

Like most girls, jewelry is a must! I love bracelets and I usually wear a ton all at once. I had a Nordstrom gift card and a Macy’s gift card that needed swiping so I used both to add to my jewelry collection. When it comes to jewelry, I usually take the pile it on approach. After all, I started playing dress up at a young age and never stopped.

The first two pieces are from Nordstrom. The bow necklace is from Bonnie Jonas and the “AMOR” bracelet is from BCBG. Lastly, I fell in love with this amazing Onyx gold and sterling silver square ring at Macy’s. I haven’t take it off since it came home with me and I really think it is one of the best rings I have.

Lastly, I didn’t have a gift card for these two items but I couldn’t resist. I’ve been looking for a ring/bracelet for a long time now and when I stopped by Aldo’s Accessories, it was love at first sight. I also decided on the cute cross earrings.

My day at the mall was definitely a mood changer. I’m always one to save my gift cards for a rainy day.

Accessorize your life

A little accessorizing can spice up any outfit and I’m all about the accessories! From belts to jewelry to bags, wallets, eye wear, scarves and hand bags, accessories are what can complete your look. Target is one of my go to stores because I always find an item to add to my closet. There’s always a cute dress, shoes I can’t live without, accessories or all of the above. Check out the cute belts I picked up on clearance for $3 each!! I will definitely be putting them to good use.
