Mother’s Day shopping haul

As I mentioned yesterday, I was ridiculously spoiled on Mother’s Day and even got to do some shopping.

I love and adore every moment with my baby, but it was so nice to shop with nothing but my purse (not a diaper bag) and a cup of hot tea from Starbucks in my hands.

I’ve had some requests to show what I got, so here’s the loot!


Shopping haul

1. Circle-print chambray popover shirt (J. Crew)

(Apparently, I scored a major deal and had no idea.  I only paid $30 my shirt, but the sale price online is $70!)

2. Chino shorts in stone (J. Crew)

3. Falousto necklace (Aldo Accessories)

4. Printed roll-sleeve shirt dress (GAP)

5. Contrast-edge belt (GAP)

6. Printed clean front shorts (GAP)

7. NYE sandals (Aldo)

(Got an extra 20% off)

8. Pintucked lace tie-neck blouse in white (GAP)

9. Roll-sleeve pocket shirt dress (GAP)

(Got an extra 30% off)


Can you tell that I’m kind of in love with GAP right now? I was like a woman possessed in that store! I actually got two more shirts in there that I didn’t list above because I couldn’t find links to them online.

Have you done any shopping lately?  If so, what did you get?


Have a great day!


(PS- I am co-hosting a link-up tomorrow for the first time tomorrow, so make sure that you come back here tomorrow to check it out and join in on the fun!)




  1. I definitely eyed up those shorts when I was in J Crew a few weeks ago…now I wish I had bought them (I was lazy the day we shopped and didn’t want to try them on…major regret!)

    You seriously got some great little gems there!!!

    Maybe you’ll luck out, and they’ll go on sale soon! Then I’ll be the one kicking myself for getting them early. 😉

  2. I love that chambray pullover shirt. Too cute!

    thegrassskirt Reply:

    Thanks! I cannot wait to wear it. :)

  3. GREAT picks, I love everything here! I’m shopping vicariously through you at the moment (and we don’t have a J Crew in my city–what kind of junk is that?)

    thegrassskirt Reply:

    No J. Crew? Oh, the horror! :) There online factory sales are always good though, FYI.

  4. LOVE that chambray popover– and what a deal! The Aldo necklace is adorable too! Lots of great remixable items in this haul!

    thegrassskirt Reply:

    I still cannot believe that I scored such a deal on the shirt! I never would have bought it at full price or even the online sale price, so I really lucked out.

  5. I love taking time to shop for myself:) Some great items – loving the shorts and dresses – oh so cute! I recently purchased two new skirts (light blue/hot pink) and a pair of coral capris – very much about color this Spring/Summer. Happy Tuesday

    thegrassskirt Reply:

    I’m totally into color too. That second dress is HOT pink, and I love it! Happy Tuesday :)

  6. Sounds like you had a great day! I remember how nice it was to have a couple of hours to shop by myself when my girls were little – now they’re older we have a great time shopping together!

    I am sure it will be fun to take him along with me when he is a bit older. I can bribe him with something from the food court! :)

  7. I LOVE GAP too! I actually picked out 4 and 6 as my favorites and then of course when I scrolled down I saw they were both from GAP :)

    thegrassskirt Reply:

    GAP has been on a roll lately, haven’t they? I used to be such a J. Crew girl, but GAP has my heart at the moment.

  8. Yes, I got some Kate Spade earrings today because they are having a 75% off sale (!

    thegrassskirt Reply:

    Oh my goodness, how did I miss that? I always get the sale alerts! Heading over there now… :)

    It was on their Facebook. I lucked out and just so happened to see it. Enjoy :) I know I did!

  9. Awesome buys!

    I love 1,3 and 6!

    thegrassskirt Reply:

    Those are some of my favorites too. :)


  1. Things I didn’t share Friday (5-17) | The Grass Skirt - [...] When I went shopping last weekend, I picked up another necklace in Aldo that I didn’t show in my …
