Brace yourself, because I think for the next week I am going to start rolling out all of my amazing sale purchases from after Christmas break! Usually, the sales are good right after Christmas when retailers start moving out the winter stock and gear up for spring but this year the sales seem to be exceptionally good! For example, I walked out of Old Navy a couple weeks ago with four items (two shirts and two pairs of pants) and my total was $17! One of the items was this striped shirt for only $4! I was happy to find it on the clearance rack and give it a good home because I am always willing to take in an extra striped shirt and add it to my collection!

The embroidered polka dot skirt from Boden that I'm wearing is, you guessed it, another one of my sale deals from right after Christmas! I have it in another color and pattern and, as you can see. I loved it so much that I had to get it in another style! I also decided to do some pattern mixing with the dots, my new striped shirt, and, of course, a leopard belt to tie the look together. Now, every time I wear a leopard belt or bag, my husband makes fun of me for calling it a neutral, but I'm going to stand my ground on that one, as I think there are just some things men will never understand!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention that these earrings were also part of my sale haul from the last few weeks. I have a lot of earrings and, lately, my collection has stabilized because I really don't wear earrings all that often. The one thing I was missing from my collection was a pair of gold earrings. When I saw these on sale, I knew I would get a lot of use out of them. In fact, I wore them two days in a row! I think it's important to not only get things on sale, but to also get things that you are actually going to wear, as opposed to things that are just tempting because of the price. Luckily, with all three of the aforementioned items, I think I'll be getting a lot of use out of them in the near future!

  2. There were so many amazing sales at the end of the year. I love this look and all the colors.


  3. I agree that leopard is a neutral. Love the mix of stripes and dots.

  4. Wow! You scored some great bargains, Katie! ;) This is such a great outfit! I love the mix of prints and the gold earrings are fab! I agree that when shopping the sales, that it's important to think about whether you will actually wear the item before you buy it! I used to go crazy at the sales, due to the cheap prices and then later realise I didn't even really like most of what I had bought! I was just buying because it was a "good deal"! Now I TRY to be more mindful when shopping! ;) XXX

  5. You are a master at mixing patterns. Another great fun outfit and a bargain too!! x
