Happy Monday Everyone!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend!


Since the weather has been getting warmer, I’ve been living in this pretty pink and blue striped BCBG coat.  I picked it up on our way to Chicago last month at an outlet mall in Indiana.


The original price of this jacket was $268, marked down to $119, which was a little too high for me.  I tried it on anyway and of course fell in love.  I asked the sales associate if there were any further discounts on the coat, and he said no.  Sadly, I put it back on the rack, but then the sales associate said he could check the price just in case.   To my sheer delight, the coat rang up at only $49!  Obviously, I couldn’t pass it up at that price!


My lesson learned, and my outlet shopping tip for you, is to ALWAYS ask a sales associate to check the price of an item if price is deterring you from making the purchase.  Hopefully, it may be cheaper than marked on the tag.


P.S. I’m excited to be linking up with sweet Jane on her blog Toronto Shopoholic for her #waywewear light wash denim series.  Check it out!

Sweater: Old Navy. Skirt: H&M (old). Clutch: Coach. Collar: H&M (similar). Shoes: Boutique 9. Watch: Michael Kors. Ring: Kate Spade, H&M. Bracelets: J.Crew, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.


If you follow along on Instagram, you’ve already seen that I purchased the Coach Penny bag in this beautiful mint shade and also in sunny lemon.  I’ve wanted the Penny bag for months now but I was waiting for the perfect colour to come out.  Turns out Coach came out with 2 perfect colours for me, and I just had to have both.


I wore this outfit to another baby shower this past weekend, and yes, while I was late (as usual) arriving to the event, I was also late to another party. . .the MINT party.  But hey, better late than never, right?  Surprisingly, I didn’t make any mint purchases last Spring when it was the colour of the season, but as soon as I saw this cozy Old Navy sweater on their website, I new I had to have it in this stunning pastel.  Am I the only one who was late to jump on the mint bandwagon?
