Weekend Haul

November 12, 2013

Hello, friends!  I am so excited to share this haul for several reasons: a) I love everything I bought, b) I didn’t pay full price for a single item and c) I have already worn every item I bought (more than once, if I’m being honest) except for one, which I plan on wearing later this week.  :)

It honestly has been forever since I’ve even had the time to do any shopping except for a little browsing online so when I hit the mega jackpot this weekend, I didn’t hold back (as you will soon see)!


First things first, I found this super cute Roxy mini backpack at Sport Chalet’s tent sale / parking lot sale last week when The Boyfriend and I were just browsing.  I have actually been looking for another backpack since my other backpack is very spring/summer and I wanted one that would be more suitable for fall/winter.  The best part: because of the tent sale, I got this backpack on super clearance from the retail price of $44 all the way down to $15!

OldNavy_mintsweaterNext up is this super pretty and comfortable mint green sweater from Old Navy.  My mom and I decided to check out Old Navy’s 30% sale (the entire store was 30% – awesome!) on Saturday night and I found this beautiful sweater that I just couldn’t walk away from.  Plus, I’ve already worn this sweater twice and it is plenty warm and thick, perfect for winter.  Bottom line: $35 on sale for $25!  (On sale online here!)


My next find was also from Old Navy, this time in the clearance section.  Part of Old Navy’s “collectibles” collection, this E.T. graphic dolman-sleeve tee is soft, comfortable and perfect for staying casual and layering.  I’ve been on the hunt for more stylish graphic T’s that I can pair with skirts, dark jeans or layer with shirts and sweaters.  Bottom line: regular price – $17, clearance price – $11.50!

I also found at Old Navy the most gorgeous slub knit sweater with a hi/lo hem that I have had my eye on for months, just waiting for it to go on sale.  I couldn’t find a picture online, but it’s a light heather gray color and looks like a typical raglan sleeve sweater, except in the most luxuriously soft slub jersey material.  The best part, I got it for the super clearance price of only $8.50!!


Last, but certainly not least, is the find of the night!  After Old Navy, my mom and I decided to head over to DSW because I had a great coupon ($20 off purchase of $49 or more) so we thought we’d see what they had.  I was browsing around not really finding anything that I couldn’t live without, when I stumbled across these gorgeous Mia suede booties in the clearance section!!  I promise I had no intention of buying another pair of booties, but YOU GUYS!  These booties not only fit like a glove, are comfortable, stylish, made of the most incredibly soft and beautiful black suede, go with everything and are flattering, but they were also on CLEARANCE!  The bottom line: retail – $80, DSW – $60, on sale for $35, price I paid after my coupon – $25!!!  (Just in case you’re interested, they are still available at DSW here – and they come in other colors!!  I am so tempted to get the burgundy pair….!)

You just can’t beat finding great steals like these boots, which, coincidentally, I have practically lived in since I bought them Saturday night.  What great deals have you been finding lately?  Share anything drool worthy, please!  ;)

As always, thanks for reading :), Kristi


PS. I have not been compensated by any of the retailers mentioned in this post, I am simply sharing my great fashions finds!  :)

    I almost bought the same sweater in the same color this weekend! Still debating whether or not to go back and grab one up.
