It’s Just a Little Crush II

Since I have more summer clothes than I probably need, I’ve put myself on a shopping ban. I actually did pretty well not shopping this month w/o being on an official ban. July purchases include Old Navy’s super sale where I picked up 2 skirts, shorts, a tank top, and a jacket all for $30, Gap running shorts (with pockets!) for $5, and hot pink sunglasses (my old ones broke) from a random store for $6. All in all, $41 in shopping for a month isn’t so bad.

Either way, I’m now on an official shopping ban from now until the end of August (when it’s acceptable to start making Fall purchases). In order to use this non-shopping time wisely, I’m going to make a list of Fall crushes much like  I did with Spring/Summer crushes. That way, come time, I will know what I really need for my Fall wardrobe (besides semi-professional clothes for my new job). The exception to the ban is that if something on the list goes on mega sale (as you maybe can tell, I’m a major sale shopper) then I can buy it early.

Here are my Fall crushes as of this uber hot day in July (how appropriate):

Gap Simple Drawstring Pants

  I have a pair of these from a few years back that I’ve worn to death. Like to the point that even Chris says they need to be replaced. I love them for Pilates, the dog park, or just lounging around.

Tom's Navy Tie Dye Classics

 For the longest time I heard about Tom’s, but never knew what they looked like. Recently, I saw a pair and decided that they will make the perfect Fall commuter/weekend/West Coast trip shoe.

American Eagle Worn Dark Wash Skinny Jeans (these are a different wash)

These are the first pair of skinny jeans that I’ve not only been able to button, but also made me say, damn. Thus, I think I need these in my future.

As always, I am still crushing on a pair of cowboy boots. Maybe this will be the year:

Frye Billy Pull On Boots

Hot Pink Motivation

You know what also helps me get back on track? New athletic clothes! I stopped in at the GAP, and they are having a 50% off sale on some of their GAP Body products. I also have a coupon for 25% my purchase. Combining both coupons, I picked up a new pair of hot pink running shorts for $10! Nothing to put me in the mood to run like new cheery-colored running shorts.

So if you’re interested, check out GAP Body’s sale in stores and print out your coupon for extra savings.

It’s Just a Little Crush

Remember that song?

That was my middle school jam. Right now I am crushing hard. On spring clothes. Beautiful warm weather spring into summer clothes. I am over the cold and one of my ways to deal with cold weather is to pick out all the lovelies I want to add to my wardrobe when the sun shines warm once again. The best part about picking things out early is that I can do one of my favorite activities: clothing stalking. It works like this: 1) Pick out the full price item you want 2) Look for coupons for that item. 3) Go back to the store every so often to see if the item has gone on sale. 4) When said awesome coupon or sale appears, buy! It works well for me most every time.

These are my current spring crushes:

I haven’t  been able to wear jean shorts for some time, but I tried these on yesterday and they fit well and looked good, too. I will be looking for that Gap 30% off coupon that comes around every few months.

I love Antrhopologie, but most items are out of my price range, but this price point is good. This just may have to be added to my wardrobe.

I am a big fan of ModCloth. This little dress would look great with some flats.

I am the worst about picking out tops. I wind up having a million skirts and nothing to wear with them. This top from Ruche is dainty and fun at the same time.

My old American Eagle mini skirt was tossed when I thought I would never lose the weight I had gained. Now that I am back into my old pants size, I want a new one.

Target sundresses are always the best, though they tend to only last a season. Still, for under $20 that’s fine by me.

Payless for the win! These shoes are fun and look like they would be good for walking around the city. I enjoyed the price comparision here. I owned these shoes in silver last year, and wore them until they were dead. Now I am excited to pick up a new pair!

What clothing crushes do you currently have? What are your favorite stores to shop in?
