I'm convinced that a little sparkle is the perfect pick-me-up. Well, that and extra large caramel lattes, my toddler's giggles, red velvet cake and a new shoes. How can you not feel a little joy in a shirt sprinkled with sequins?
This top has been making the rounds on the internet since before Christmas, and I couldn't wait to join the ranks of blogger cliche. I hopped over to J. Crew Factory and was heartbroken to discover my size was completely sold and stayed sold out. Then a few weeks ago J. Crew Factory had a huge 50% off clearance sale. Apparently the shopping gods where with me because the shirt was there. IN.MY.SIZE. and 50% off. I snagged it and the most gorgeous wool coat (for only $55) and rushed to checkout before my beautiful shirt could go out of stock again. Anyway, it obviously made it to me since I'm wearing it in pictures today. Hooray for shopping success!

These American Eagle jeans are another recent purchase. They feel like leggings they're so soft, stretchy and comfortable. Word of warning though, wash these jeans before wearing...I didn't and had blue finger nails and a little bit of dye rubbed off on my booties. I'm hoping that a damp cloth and Dawn will remove the dye. Otherwise I'm going to be ticked my $19 jeans discolored my $150 shoes. :( Suggestions on how to remove blue dye from suede?
I'm sharing a bit more about my recent denim, shirt and coat purchases (among others) tomorrow with my January budget recap. Spoiler, it was a month to spend all the monies. Darn sales. Amazing for my wardrobe, terrible for my budget.
