I purchased this triangle top and its matching skirt on LOFT last week. I haven’t shopped at LOFT in several years. I can’t remember the last time I shopped there, but when I went to look for a gift two weeks ago, I walked past Ann Taylor and saw this lace skirt. While I was in Ann Taylor I was reminded of its sister store, LOFT, and decided to check out the clothing when I got home. Then I remembered that teachers get discounts, soooooo I searched online to see if I could get the discount online. The discount is only valid in-store, but man! Apparently LOFT is always having sales, so I really didn’t need my teacher discount. When I bought this skirt and top, it was already marked down to $45 per piece, but I got an additional 60% off because of the Memorial Day Weekend sale(s). Continue reading →

 I’ve sang the praises of J. Crew Factory’s Emery flats for over a year. I own them in black and bronzed clay, and they are my go-to flats. I do have a wide foot, so I tend to size up in any kind of flats and did the same with the Factory Emery flats. I wear my Emery flats at least three to four times a week. I teach, so you know that means I stand all day long. I was iffy about buying the flats last year, but I’m so glad I did!

These flats are versatile, comfortable, and fashionable. J. Crew Factory recently added the navy version (shown above) to their product line, and I had to make sure I nabbed them for the new school year!

These shoes retail for $98, and they are currently listed for $78. Last night they were $60, so I was bummed when the price increased today! However, I just got an email about a flash sale! If you enter SWIM at checkout you get FREE shipping and 30% off! Plus, if you use EBATES you get 1.5% cashback.

Check out a few ways I’ve worn my flats here:

I guess when I get stuck on a print, I really get stuck! I’ve really been into floral items lately (exhibit A, B, C), so I’ve been on the hunt for even more floral patterns. Since I’m on summer break, I have a bit more time to thrift. During the school year my thrifting excursions are limited because I’d rather go home than thrift. When I do hit up the thrift stores, it’s on the days we have early dismissal (Thursday!).
