Default Shopping, shopping shopping!

You only have today and tomorrow, but here's a great 30% off friends and family Ann Taylor and Ann Taylor Loft coupon I received in email last night. It's printable and meant to be passed on.

I know it's a favorite for a lot of us! In fact, I just came home from ATL when I got my email. Those clothes are going back today and I'll re-buy them at a different store

Have fun (Glory, Meg and Allison!).

Mel

Oh, in the interest of sharing sales! J. Jill is having a pretty good online sale, I got a cute brown skirt and matching top and the most BEAUTIFUL coat!

Russian Princess Coat

Cute brown wrap skirt

Shirt (in cactus) that should match the skirt, but if not, it was only 13.00 and will go with black pants

Oh, and I got the retro sweater in carrot earlier to go with the color splashed skirt (which is also on sale) and it fits so well and looks so nice, I could NOT resist getting it in lavender when it went on sale! lavender retro sweater

Thank you thank you thank you!

I stopped by my boyfriend's office before hitting the mall and printed the coupon - I loooove all the new stuff at Ann Taylor. I was just saying "wow, I really wish I had more pink clothes" and everything is pink! (and orange and yellow and navy blue).

I bought one full price outfit (which I NEVER do) but could not resist at 30%.

I don't see the skirt I bought online at AT - it is a dark brown, wide a-line with big embroidered pink and white flowers (it is so cute)! I got this cardigan to go with it in dark pink.

I also got this in sea jade and a great silky skirt I had been loving for months - it's lake blue, white and navy blue in a "bull's eye in bull's eye" design (as my boyfriend described it). It was 29.00 on sale, so 20 with the 30% discount!

I also loved this skirt but it fit oddly over the hips and at 98.00 I couldn't justify it (although I thought it would look super cute with a dark brown cardigan I already have). I also really really liked this dark pink, exotic with metallic gold accents skirt, but it was too expensive and I have NO IDEA what to wear with it (AT was pairing it with a very classic white wrap shirt waist that didn't seem to "go" with it at all).

Very good shopping day, I also love all the navy and orange stuff they have - can't WAIT for it to go on sale.

Anybody seen any cute navy sandals anywhere? I've been looking but can't find anything decent!

Glory, you look amazing! Haha, if I saw you on the street I'd probably think you were one of those naturally skinny women who has to work hard to gain weight.

Ha thanks Meg!

Jessica - I'm actually much much smaller on top. I still have a tummy and generous hips/thighs.

It is funny, I am built very much like my gorgeous super naturally skinny mother - I didn't know it for 35 years!

Yes, those are my mom's donkeys. Yes, she goes out and feeds them in such outfits (that outfit I bought her for Mother's Day from Chico's). She also has 3 goats!

Hi Jen! Love all the pics. Your boyfriend looks like a super nice guy, and you are absolutely radiant. Love the top from Ann T. Very flattering. I agree that you look like a naturally thin person. So healthy and happy. Your mom is adorable too, and I'll bet you were thrilled to go see her and not worry about her seeing you at 200 pounds.

You are all cute, including the donkeys! And I bet the goats are cute, too.
(Donkeys and goats are my favourite animals).
