A LITTLE MOTIVATION

I’m walking much better now that my fall is almost 3 months behind me. I still have a ways to go before I can run again, but I’m back in normal shoes and am beginning to take on a little height.

Nothing keeps me motivated like a pair of new shoes. And twice the pairs of new shoes means twice the motivation!

These were not on sale, but they were so reasonably priced to begin with that I’m not bothered by it in the least.

The THOUGHTFUL Gladiator Sandals on the left were $51.00.
The TREAT ME Heeled Sandals were $40.00.

Gosh I hope they are as cute in person as they are in the photos!

SHELLS ON SALE

As a child, I was confused by the concept of a shell. What my mother called a shell looked to me a whole lot like a tank top and I always wondered why my mother had so many “shells” in her closet.

I totally get it now!
They fit perfectly under a jacket and avoid the whole bunched up sleeve scenario. They are also a smart option for summer when it is blazing hot outside, but you need a jacket indoors to counter the blasting AC.

Now I am growing a shell collection of my own!
This week Ann Taylor marked everything on their website down by 40% and I picked up this classic shell in 3 colors. The promotion reduced each top fromΒ $39.50 to $23.70 each.

POSHMARK PICKS

It’s been a month or so since I posted about my Poshmark finds, so let me get you caught up.

J.Crew Cabled Cashmere Sweater $18.00
Jack Rogers Nude Sandals $74.00
J.Crew Tweed Jacket $40.00

Summer is a great time to buy winter clothes because they are all on sale! I am always keeping my eye out for the reduction notices on Poshmark for additional savings.

My go to Jack Rogers sandals finally kicked the bucket last week after having been resoled twice and so it was time for a new pair. I found these never been worn Jacks for only $74! That’s a savings of about $30.00. Not bad!

BRAND NEW BAG

Bare with me! I am working through a backlog of posts that were in my draft folder. Apparently I just never hit post!

A few months ago I purchased a new handbag thay I ultimately had to return due to an issue with the strap. I didn’t replace it at the time because I couldn’t find another bag that I liked.

Over the weekend I finally found the perfect handbag!

I compared the large and small bags and bought the smaller bag. The smaller bag was originally $295.00 reduced to $179.00. While I was in the store, they were offering a promotion that offered another 50% off of most bags. That brought the total before taxes to only $89.50! When it was all said and done, I only paid $95.77!

I love a good beige bag!

THE EVERY DAY LBD

I found myself in need of a fresh day to day black dress to wear under jackets at work. It’s so difficult to find dresses that hit at the knee these days so I was thrilled to find one for such a reasonable priceΒ on Amazon.

This Lark & Roe dressΒ was only $59.50!

It’s washable and I didn’t even have to iron it after washing. Such an easy dress for those mornings when you just need to grab and go.

THE PANTS DANCE

I have been through some ups and downs with my britches lately. My favorite pair of Ponte Pants blew its zipper and now my two pairs of good jeans have broken belt loops.

I have regained some ground on the work pants side of things, but I have had trouble finding jeans that are long enough. On a whim I entered “32 inch inseam” into Poshmark and found some really great options.

I scored this pair of Vince jeans for only $43.00! They are so very soft and light weight, which makes them perfect for the warmer months.

I also found this pair of Paige jeans on eBay in perfect condition for less than $50.00! The fit is just right and they would have cost me close to $200.00 if I had bought them in a store.

I have been doing a lot of shopping lately, but I have spent very little thanks to eBay and Poshmark. It’s easy to buy and to sell! Check out the items I have available on both sites!
