Weekend Shopping On-Line

After deciding what my new color additions would be for  my 2012   wardrobe, I did a bit of perusing on-line.  I came up with a some things that I am pretty sure I will love(if they fit!)

In my looking I found more cobalt blue items that I loved than any of the other colors, so cobalt/navy will be the mainstay in my wardrobe added to a black and white base.

I just love when the big brown truck pulls up in front of my home. That man in the brown shorts, and shirt sure is nice, but he could use a little color pop in his wardrobe too.

Shopping on line in my jammies sure is fun and easy! Here are some of the items that will be coming to my home…….

This black top with white polka dots is going to be a staple in my wardrobe. I think it is a dress-up, dress-down blouse.

If I were to put this blouse with a pencil skirt, and a cute pair of patent heels. Topped off with a cute bright skinny belt, it would be dressy.

However I will be wearing it with my jeans since I have a more casual lifestyle these days.

Speaking of polka-dots here is a larger variety in navy and white…….

I could not believe this was at Old Navy I kept seeing something similar on-line for three time the price in another line.

This was so reasonable and I got an extra 15% off by getting it on-line today, Woo Hoo!!
I purchased two more items from Old Navy too…….

This was on sale today from $44.95 to $20 with an extra 15% off if I got it!! today! You do the math!!! Okay I will help you……. I got this cutie for $17. Can you believe it!

I think this will be so fun to wear with my new polka dot blouse underneath it. For that matter, I think it will be pretty cute with anything in my wardrobe!

You know how this girl loves her black and white stripes!!

I needed to add a touch of the Kelly green/Emerald to my wardrobe so I chose to do it with just a touch in an accessory………

I already have a bright yellow, leopard and black patent that I have had for several years. I can mix and match all my belts with just about anything I am putting together. 

Remember this black and cobalt striped turtle neck?………

It is coming to my house too!! I got it at JC Penney’s, who knew? I must admit I never think to go there, but my DIL had me go with her one time, and she pointed out all kinds of cute items.
I  had to really look to find the treasures, but they are there if you are willing to look.

This time around Pinterest did the shopping for me, thanks to style maven, Jessica Quirk!!!

I already have the black and white striped shirt so I added a v-neck cashmere in cobalt to my wardrobe too!! I know I will have this for years to come.

I did find another cute item in Emerald/Kelly green………

I think this is just so cheerful and fun!! With the black polka dots I can shake it up with stripes or continue the dot them with my new blouse.

Now, you know what I have been doing all weekend. None of these are investment pieces, but they will be a nice addition to my wardrobe. I already have some good staples in my wardrobe. I think we need a few new pieces each season to perk up our wardrobe.

You don’t necessarily have to break the bank. You just need to really decide what direction, and what colors you are looking for, and then do a little research.

Most of the items I purchased I also saw items very similar for higher prices.

You can get the look for less if you are willing to investigate a little bit. Let’s face it, shopping for a bargain, and finding what you like is fun (especially in your jammies)!!!

If you would like to see more of what is inspiring my wardrobe, and some of the items on my wish list you can go to my Pinterest boards:

Looks To Make My Way ( these are looks I have to tweak a bit to make them more appropriate for my taste, age, and figure.)

Who knows maybe you will be inspired to do a little shopping in your jammies too!!!

REALLY REALLY cute things. I LOVE that last one with the Kelly green! I always wear a lot of green and I am now thinking I need one with some polka dots!

I love to shop on line and have very good luck with clothes that I purchase...it is easier for me than scouring the stores to find an item. Love it- I just, believe it or not, ordered a bathing suit online- xo Diana

Kathysue! I bought that same Old Navy black and white sweater! How funny. Not even sure what I am going to wear it with but it was such a good deal I had to get it....I think I will check out a few other things you pictured.

You are going to have the cutest outfits...I love how everything coordinates so well. Stripes are supposed to be very popular this year!

I love to shop online at all different stores. Macy's, Kohls, Penneys, even Target because I see the whole inventory if the store is out of something. And nothing beats shopping in your PJ's on a cold, rainy day!!
