{recap} Wardrobe Update - April

Since I gave up buying clothes for Lent I made it through half of the month without buying anything. The weekend after Easter I went to Marshalls with my Mom and luckily nothing I tried on fit me. I did want to find something new to wear in Italy. Well, new-er. I do have a few pieces I bought last year/got for Christmas that I'll be taking on the trip, but they don't seem as "new" since I've been staring at them for months.

Yesterday I attended a Spring fashion event at Clinton Crossing Premium Outlets and won a $100 gift card AND an adorable bag! With my gift card I picked up some gorgeous black mules, which I've been wanting for a couple years. I also bought an oversized (aka size large because they didn't have my size) cardigan and cargo pants and I still have $10.52 left on my gift card. SCORE! 

We still have this weekend, and an event with Lydia in Greenwich, so we'll see if I add anything else...

  1. I can't believe how incredibly well you've done with this (I would seriously be a total disaster) - and I'm sure you'll find a great piece for Italy.
