Haul: J.Crew, Zara, Sephora, MAC, Rachel Roy, Old Navy, GAP

I had a great day today!  H and I went shopping and had dim-sum for lunch at Gigi’s (so yummy!)


I filmed a collective haul video when I got home but I wanted to share a couple of fitting room photos I took as well.


Here are the jeans I got at Zara for $35.90 (thanks to Cori for sending this link---buy them here). Mint is such a huge color trend for spring/summer and these were such a great price. They fit a lot like my beloved GAP “always skinny” jeans.

Here they are with a top I tried on---I didn’t buy it because it was just too blah/loose and the back was so long that it just looked off on me:

I also got this top today at J.Crew.  I love anything with hot pink and the classic stripe makes this top incredibly versatile while still having that fun pop of color.  I also want to mention how appreciative I am of the great service I always get at my local J.Crew.  The stylist there, Michelle, is awesome and always makes great suggestions on sizing and styling. This top is a medium.

I also ordered the Polly popover in stripe crepe de chine (in the black and white color) online because they didn’t have it in store. I tried on the green and navy one which is gorgeous, but I felt the B&W was a little more versatile for me.

I also got this pretty dress from Macys---it’s by Rachel Roy. The photo really doesn’t do it justice---the colors and print are much more striking in person.

Did you buy anything this weekend? Let me know in the comments below.  If you’d like to see what else I got, you can watch my video below.









Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

  12. Thank you for mentioning the nail polish color, I had it ordered before the video was over! If you're looking for colored denim check out White House Black Market they have a great pair of red skinnies right now for around $80.00 they run small but stretch so I suggest ordering a size up!

  22. Those mint jeans are awesome, I am obsessed with mint lately-it's definitely the main color I'm drawn to right now.

  23. In response to the comment you left on my blog: I was thinking of doing a post and/or video on my hair but I have held off for now because I am getting a SLR soon so I'd rather do it with the new camera rather then the old point and shoot I'm using now. It will be coming though! I was shocked at how many people comment on my hair! Never expected that when I started my blog!

  26. Love love love those mint jeans! I'm 37 weeks pregnant right now, so I will not be purchasing, but that first pic will be great motivation to lose the baby weight... you look awesome!

  27. I was just curious about a few things, and I hope this doesn't come off as being nosey.
    Do you budget how much you will spend on clothing, makeup, etc?
    How do you organize your clothing, jewelry, and makeup?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Melanie--No I don't really budget, I just try to get everything on sale and I never spend more than I can afford. My husband and I both work and we don't have any children so we are at a point in our lives where we feel comfortable with what we spend.

    I have posts on my blog and also my YouTube channel on how I organize my makeup and jewelry. I also have posts about my closet organization. Just use the search bar at the top right of my blog to see posts related to that and check out my channel at:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/VeronikasBlushing?feature=mhee for all of my videos :)

  29. Love those mint jeans. Seriously! And I just bought the pink/khaki bag. I'm in need for one that zips at top. Thanks for finding it :-)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Love your purchases!

    I went to Old Navy and got this dress. It was originally $32 and it was on sale for $25. The pic doesn't really do it justice. It's much cuter in person. It reminded me of a DVF wrap dress. I wore it for our Valentine's Day dinner & a movie date.

    I also got this chambray shirt. It was marked down to $10.49 from $24.95. (This isn't the exact one. It doesn't have buttons on the pockets)

  32. Hi Veronika,
    I recently found you through Pinterest, and immediately read back through 6 months of your blog. Anyway, you may already know, but Gap's making the Always Skinny in colors now including lilac and rose: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=8798&vid=1&pid=889178&scid=889178022

  34. What size did you get in the mint jeans? I don't have a Zara near me, so I can't try them on, but I think we're about the same size.
