{in the dressing room}

Yesterday my Mom and I had a fun girls' day out. Lots of good food, giggles, coffee and shopping! Our most exciting stop of the day was our new TJ Maxx, which just opened up this past weekend.

To say I was excited about this momentous occassion is a tad bit of an understatement. The shopping in our small town is less than stellar so getting a TJ Maxx is huge people.  HUGE. :)

Wanna see what I tried on? I bought all but one of these pieces...let's see if you can guess which one. {and I know you'll be disappointed because it was one of my faves, but just not practical for my life right now}

First up was this cute green dress...


I wanted to find a dress to wear to an upcoming baby shower and I love this one. It is very comfortable and flattering and of course I love the pockets. It is work appropriate too which makes it even better.

Then I tried on this adorable pink/coral dress...



I looove the cutouts around the neckline and the hem.

Next I tried on this casual top...



It looks like denim in the pic but it is really a light aqua fabric with a bit of a sheen. I love the flouncy hem...so fun!

And last was this top and skirt combo...


The top has little stars on it and the skirt is a really great trouser style with a cuff and wrap tie around the waist.

So which item did I not purchase???

The pink/coral dress.

I know...bummer. I really, really liked it. BUT it was too short to wear alone and I was already going over my spending budget for the day, so back to the rack it went.

I'm actually wearing the star top and trouser skirt outfit today and I love it...it is a lot more flattering than I thought it would be and super comfortable. Here's a close-up pic of the top from my instagram this morning...


I also bought a turquoise {my new favorite color} Nine West wallet for $12 {!!!} and some superhero figures for the boys' upcoming birthday. So many great deals in that place. And SO dangerous that it is literally 2 minutes from my house.

Yikes.

Cute new clothes!!! I like both dresses over the jeans actually... I'd call that coral colored one a "tunic top" :)
