My First Shopping Haul

As you all know from my post on Thursday, I was going on a major shopping trip this weekend. My friend and I had a blast and we both got so many great pieces! I thought I would share it all with you making this my first official shopping haul!

These are just a few of my purchases. I also purchased from J. Crew whose bag isn’t shown because I’m saving it to do this DIY project with! I hope you all enjoy this haul!

 I managed to get everything from my list except for a pair of grey flats and a pair of jean capris. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for those in the upcoming weeks! But I did manage to find some colored shorts, cute tops, lots of jewelry, and some beauty products!

Colored shorts were something on my list to buy this weekend and I lucked out with two pairs from J. Crew and a navy pair from Forever 21. As for J. Crew, I have always walked into the store thinking “Oh my goodness. This store is totally my style!” but it is so out of my price range at the same time… which is why we hit up the J. Crew factory store! I fell in love and can’t wait to go back. Honestly, if I could sum up my fashion style based on one store, it would be J. Crew for sure. Psst: If you’re also a college student, be sure to show your ID at J. Crew to score an additional 15% off your purchase!

J. Crew Striped v-neck sweater // Forever 21 color block top // Ann Taylor ruched top
 Vera Bradley Large duffel (in Watercolor)
Forever 21 mint flower studs // Forever 21 peach teardrop earrings // Charming Charlie chain ring // Charming Charlie gold watch // Charming Charlie gold chain bracelets
I also got something called a Little Black Dress. It’s a jewelry organizer that has pockets on one side for earrings and bracelets, and velcro loops on the other side to hold your necklaces. 
Here’s a peek at some of the new necklaces I got from Charming Charlie’s and Ann Taylor. I’m still working on adding in my other jewelry pieces but I’m sure my LBD will be filled in no time!
We also popped into the LUSH store while at the mall and got some goodies. I knew going into the store that I wanted a bath bomb so I picked up Rose Queen, which is filled with rose petals and smells amazing! I can’t wait to use that over spring break when I have access to my bath tub!
I also picked up a body butter bar called the Aqua Mirabilis. This is something I wasn’t expecting to buy but after the sales woman tested it on my arm, I was convinced! The ground almond shells are a great exfoliator, while the almond butter is extremely moisturizing. I’ve used it twice already and it’s amazing!
That’s the conclusion of my first shopping haul. I hope you all enjoyed and please feel free to answer these questions in the comment section below!

    So many cute things! That’s exactly how I feel about J. Crew, as well! I’m in need of some new spring clothes and these items have been an inspiration!

    I’m a new follower, by the way! And I am simply LOVING your blog!

    Great haul! You are getting set for Spring!! So jealous you got to a Lush! The closet one to us is about 2 hours away and with Lush I always think you need to pick out in person. I love the bubble bars and they have the best lip scrubs! Mendi likes the Veganese conditioner and we both like the solid shampoo and conditioner bars.

    Thanks so much for the sweet comments and to the new followers – welcome!

    Vanisha: I think I might be obsessed with LUSH now. They have such a varitey! I’ll definitely have to check out the gift items closer to Christmas.

    Jayme: So sad that you guys don’t have a store near you. I see what you mean about picking things out in person though. As for the solid shampoo bars, I was tempted to try one! What type do you girls have?
