NYC Shopping Diary

Months prior to my NYC trip, I began saving my money - I knew there would be plenty of opportunities for shopping and I wanted to be able to take full advantage, without putting purchases on my credit card or feeling guilty.  The wonderful surprise was that for our experience day with Lucky, they graciously gave us $100 gift cards to spend at both Piperlime Aritzia.  I normally never pay full price for something (unless it's from Forever 21, Target or H&M), but since I had saved my dollars specifically for this trip...I made an exception.  

Here are the items I purchased using the money they gave us + a little bit of my own {also bought, but not seen below: T.Babaton black cashmere sweater (purchased using $100 gift card at Aritzia) and an H&M navy embellished cuff sweater (purchased for $59.95), both of which I couldn't find pictures or links to online}:

Hive & Honey Vintage Button Cardigan (also in mustard & charcoal) - $64.00
Pim + Larkin The Brigid Dress (also in teal, rust & black) - $79.00
Tinley Road Silk Sophia Blouse (also in white, mint, cobalt, rust & teal) - $79.00
Zara Necklace - $29.90

These all look like you! Although you'll look better in them than these models, of course. Can't wait to see everything in action.

This is why I love your blog. The fact that you talk about saving up for a shopping trip and buying things on sale whenever you can is inspiring to the rest of us. There are so many blogs out there that are great to look at, but between the $600 shoes and $1000 handbags, I lose interest because I feel like they are just not realistic for those of us with families on a budget that still want to go shopping and look great. Thanks!
