I decided to take in this lovely afternoon by doing a little shopping during lunch. We have a super cute outside mall area over here which is nice since you don't have to actually go inside the mall. I have been dying to hit up BR since they got in all of their adorable summer clothes! I spent a while browsing and then started picking up cute tops, dresses and handbags left and right. The poor saleswoman asked me about 5 different times "Would you like me to put that in a room for you?" I definitely made her earn her commission! I struck out with most of the items. I'm not digging the baggy "flowy" shirts. It is not a good look for me at all. It's like throwing a pillowcase over my head. I know you can belt them, but you can only do the belted look so many times before people start thinking that's your only style. I had a couple of dresses with me but most of them had the same issue. Big pillowcase, no shape. Until I tried on the last one. It was a beauty! The Maxi dress!! I have tried on maxi dresses before and they just didn't do it for me. They all flowed straight down instead of having a nice cling under the bust. Well ladies, this one fits awesome! It comes with a bit of a steep price tag, but oh so worth it. I kept thinking how nice it's going to be when we are in FL this summer and I can just throw this on after a long day on the beach. It is a tad long. I can't wear it with flats, but I have several wedges that I can pair it with :) And you want to know what made me even more happy - it was the last one! I snagged the last green Maxi dress they had. That never happens to me! The lady said they have been selling out of these like crazy.
I then went inside Ann Taylor Loft. I was heading out the door when I noticed a super cute ruffle button down top. I picked it up and headed straight towards the dressing room. It fit super cute! Once again, thinking about Florida nights, days, dinners. I tried to find it online but no such luck. This one looks similar, kind of. Mine has a ruffle at the cap of the sleeves. It also has more pronounced ruffles on the front the of shirt. I guess this doesn't really look like it at all. Oh well. Sorry!
