Wants and Wishes: Ann Taylor LOFT


Yesterday Ann Taylor LOFT had 50% off online and free shipping and today they are having 50% off in stores.  Ummm sign me up?  I might have already done a tad of online shopping… I had some leftover funds in my budget this month and decided to invest a little in myself.  Here are some of my wants and maybe some of my purchases!

What’s on your wishlist?

Trend of the Month Challenge

Hi friends!  I’ve gone through a little poopoo patch and haven’t been motivated to put together cute outfits so I thought I’d participate in Marion Berry’s Trend of the Month Challenge.  And this month… animal prints!

Okay, I’m not a big animal print wearer, or lover even.  I admire those who wear it and wear it well but I think there is a fine line between this

and this


I just can’t help but think of Fran Drescher as The Nanny when I think of animal print.

Obviously not everyone takes it to the level that that character did, but there is definitely a line that is easy to cross.

Since I am so scared of animal print, the only thing I own that is animal print is a cheetah scarf.  I happen to get a lot of compliments on that scarf so I’m rather proud of it.  (as I write this I realize there is a shirt in my closet that might count as animal print but a very subtle one).

With that said, here is my animal print challenge result.  Be kind!

I worked with what I had in my closet, and have had in my closet for many years, and put this together in less than a day.  I was also working with the ever changing weather in Pennsylvania right now.  48 degrees when you leave for the morning and 73 in the midafternoon.  I also have to layer carefully for my job and make sure that all pieces are appropriate to wear as the layering comes off.

Sweater: Ann Taylor Loft bought on sale many years ago.  Similar
Dress: Target bought many years ago.  Similar
Boots: Target bought a few years ago.  Similar
Earrings: Odette Hoops, $39
Ring: Stackable Deco Rings, $49
Scarf: bought at a flea market for $5! Similar

What would you have done differently?  How do you like to layer for fall?

I had fun with this challenge!  I can’t wait for next month’s!!
