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?

Owls and Polka Dots

I’m definitely in love with my new polka dot shirt.  I’ve already found so many ways to wear it… I just forget to take pictures.  I wore it on my first day of work with a cranberry sweater over top and I got a ton of compliments.

This next look with the shirt was inspired by J from J’s Everyday Fashion.  I love that I’m inspired by a look that she recreated from a look that she was inspired by!

I bought this sweater months ago and it’s been one of my absolutely favorite pieces.  I love it’s graphic, fun nature and how absolutely comfy and soft it is.  Seriously- softest sweater ever.  And since it’s from Old Navy you know it’s affordable.

I wanted to make the sweater work appropriate so I had to make a few changes.  If you haven’t read J’s blog… well I don’t know why you aren’t.  Her blog is all about making inspirations work for you with your life and with what you have in your closet.  So that’s what I did.  Thanks for the inspiration, J!

Polka Dot Shirt

I have been searching for a chambray polka dot shirt forever.

I have a lot of problems with button down shirts.  They are usually too tight in the chest area and in my arms.

On a whim, while searching for an interview outfit, I decided to try a chambray polka dot shirt on at JC Penny.  Have you been there recently?  They have some really cute stuff now at reasonable prices.

So I went into the fitting room with a bunch of interview options and the shirt.  The only thing that fit?  The shirt.  Pretty much told me it was fate.  And?  It was $16.

Might not be the most fashionable of chambray polka dot shirts but it’s definitely doing it’s job.

Speaking of jobs… I start my new one tomorrow!  Eeeeeeeee!  So in honor of the shirt I found while looking for interview clothes, I decided to wear it on my first day.  Here are some of my options.  Which one is your favorite?

These looks were inspired by this picture from Stitchfix.  Not on Stitchfix?  Get on it with this exclusive invitation!
