New Pretties!!!

Ok, so I broke down and got some new clothes. I use to work in a corporate office, and I found myself buying cute cardigans and button downs all the time. Those were my work staples even in the dead of August. If you work with a bunch of old men in suits you know exactly what I mean. It's the equivalent of the Arctic in the office. Now, that I'm at school it's not so bad. I've been finding that I wear the same old things all the time because well, it's all I have. I'm trying to branch out and buy things I know will be around for awhile and that are cute. Nothing too trendy though! NY&Co. sent me a 40% off coupon, and I'd have to say I didn't do too shabby. I only spent $129, and that's including tax and shipping. Here they are:

I thought this would be cute with work pants especially the warmer it gets.

I can't find this peasant blouse on their site. It must have sold out. I got lots of compliments on it. Very Springy!!!! I paired with a pair of brown Express editors and long strand of pearls and Gap nude patent city flats. Super Super Darling!
Everyone in my school told me they LOVED this sweater tunic. It does run big. I am about a 4-6 on the bottom, and I ordered an XS. It fit perfectly:) On Fridays, we can wear jeans. I paired this with a pair of Express dark wash DPGs from a few years ago, Gap city flats in camel, and accessorized with a long strand of pearls.

Y'all like I posted before, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress. Perfect for concerts outside, football games, lunch, brunch, you name it. It's a jersey type material and super flattering. I bought it in navy a couple of years ago, and they brought it back. The top color is called Red Light. To me, it's not really red at all. It's close tie between a coral to red orange in my opinion. 

All in all, I think all of this for $129 is pretty darn good if you ask me.

I love he jersey dress! It seems like I live in simple cotton dresses in the summer and that one just looks perfect! What a great steal for around 100 for all of that!
