Shopping & A Snow Day = Happiness

Snow days are an excellent opportunity to catch up on blogging!  I'm so happy to have this ~  hopefully once in the wintertime ~ snow day!  After all, I do enjoy linking up with The Blended Blog for:

1.  My favorite places to shop include:

*T.J. Maxx

*Marshall's

*Nordstrom:  specifically for special occasions, i.e. a mother of the groom dress!

2.  On Saturdays, my friend and I enjoy browsing in a local T.J. Maxx or Marshall's.  I do enjoy finding something serendipitously!

The "Endless Summer" pillow is from T.J. Maxx while the Baker Boy cap and scarf are from Norstrom!


3.  I do LOVE shopping for soap.  Having scented soap is such a luxury for me.  I often buy soap and a hand towel for a hostess gift.
 

4.  I don't enjoy shopping for bathing suits.  That's why I've been ordering mine from Beall's, Florida's Department Store.  After all, it's summer all year in Florida so they have an amazing selection of bathing suits that I can try on at home!

I found that hat in Marshall's.


 5.  My favorite recently purchased item has to be my new sweater from Boden.

When I saw this sweater, it was love at first sight.  I just had to wait until it was on sale, and for President's Day, there was an additional discount so I bought my longed-for sweater!


6.  Although my friend and I arrive at a store together, we do prefer to browse alone.  Plus, I have a routine.  I always start with the sales racks and finish in the shoe department.


7.  One of my best bargains was this skirt that I purchased in Savers.  


8.  I don't mind consignment stores for high-end items such as Lily Pulitzer.

9.  The best city for shopping has to be Boston, of course!  It was home to the original Filene's Basement = BEST store ever!

10.  I just love the way Reese Witherspoon dresses.  Her clothes are colorful and fun, and of course, she always looks perfect!

The best part of snow in March is that it melts quickly, and the roads get down to the pavement right away!  It's back to work tomorrow so I'm so happy that I got to blog two days in a row!

Who's your style icon?  My maiden name was "Reese" so that makes me like Reese Witherspoon even more!
