A Few Fab Finds

Happy happy Friday people! Is it just me or was this week crazy? My poor little body and mind are so confused about what day it is. I feel like it's Tuesday, but no! It's actually Friday! Glorious Friday! Pretty exciting stuff. So. Anyhow....

Over my days and days of shopping with my mom last week, I found several super good deals that I want to share (brag about, whatever). I'm a sucker for a good deal, so much so that Arsen thinks I'll just buy anything if it's on sale. Not exactly true, but I do love feeling like I'm getting a bargain.

We went to Marshall's randomly. I'd actually never shopped there before, and I was pleasantly surprised. I found a few things that I was pretty happy about.

I LOVE these sandals, and they were only $14.99. Love.

I couldn't decide which color I liked better in this t-shirt. I'm a big fan of green, but the orange is more neon-looking in reality, which I really liked. For $7.99 I figured I might as well just get both :)

So apparently I'm really into stripes. But I love this tank, it's super light-weight, which is important when it's 8 million degrees outside. Which it will be for the next two months or so here in the great state of Texas. $9.99. Not too bad.

After Marshall's we ventured over to Old Navy. I never used to shop at Old Navy, ever. But in the town that I went to college in, we literally had like five places to shop. Old Navy was one of them. When I was forced to shop there, I learned that they have a lot of great basics for really cheap. So now I'm a fan. I got this cute dress (with more stripes):

These shorts:

And these little headbands:

I spent something like $40-$45 I believe. Not too shabby.

I also got new nail polish at Kroger when we were buying groceries, and I'm obsessed with it. This isn't the best way to showcase nail polish really, because I bite my nails and my hands look like they belong to a 12 year old. I barely have any nails to paint. But you get the gist.

Now, I realize I could greatly improve upon this type of post by modeling my fab finds, but...I just can't. I get super awkward when I have to take photos alone. Like, I don't know where to look or how to hold my hands, and I end up just laughing like an idiot or having a super fake smile. So I'm pretty sure I'll never be one to do "fashion posts". Just the thought of it makes me cringe.

So that's a pretty good haul for somewhere around $100. I don't care how much money we (Arsen) end up making, I will always be that obnoxious person that tells you what a good deal I got on everything I own and will see how far I can stretch whatever amount of money I've got. I think it's charming. Right?

Now that I've inspired you with my great bargain hunting skills (ha), I hope everyone has a super fabulous weekend! I'm SO excited to spend some time with one of my favorite girls and catch up on our exciting married lives. My how things have changed....anyway, have a great weekend friends!!!
