i've just written the first of board exams last week so here i am with tons of free time! what to do? shop, what else? :) i practically raided one of my local store and tried on some items (should they go on deeper cuts). i walked home with the merino shirred cardigan in vintage wisteria (that color really is so lovely) for 34.99, Dot chiffon Betsy wrap cami in champagne for 39.99, and the textured jersey tee because of the adorable yellow-orange color. Beware of the confetti ruffle cami, it runs a little big, consider sizing down. note: the Dot chiffon Betsy wrap cami is not pictured because store didn't have my size. ordered through red phone and got price matched (online now shows 39.99, too) and waived shipping. yay! :D

also, if anyone can help me ID the unIDed item, thank you! :)

alert: Ikat dot blazer price drop, now 59.99.

hope this helps someone! please, enjoy!

Zip-side Sweatshirt & Ruffled Plaid Dress

Zip-side sweatshirt, heather charcoal, xs

Anthropologie--Ruffled Plaid Dress, sz 0

love the textured yet soft material of the zip-side sweatshirt. adore the casual, fitted, put-together look. got both colors. it is my most worn jc item this fall! it's fitted so if you're planning to layer, consider sizing up. hits at low hips. looks great zipped or not. big thumbs up and highly recommend it!

one of my favorite pieces in anthropologie's fall rollout! it will look great for 'work' with a blazer, a cardigan (or white coat). will have to wait for cuts, but don't know if my size will run out! fits nicely and true to size. adds mass to the chest. a cute belt is included. adore the buttons in back.

mixed-tape perfect cardigan & bensimon elastique

bensimon elastique in club navy, sz k4

mixed-tape perfect cardigan in bronzed twig, xs

ordered the perfect-mixed tape cardigan in navy, sandy brown, rosewood, and bronzed twig. loving the texture, grosgrain contrast, pockets and length! wish they came in more colors. one of the better quality casual cardi's in a long time.

jc was having the 20% off knits and tees, priced as marked, sale when they added the 30% off final sale promo. shortly after i ordered these the 20 promo came down and back to original price these went. during the 30 promo, i was able to snag the crewcut (in size K4) bensimons elastique in deep blueberry, club navy, and warm burgundy for less than $25 each. and, the zip-side sweatshirt in heather charcoal (loved the dark cloud too much not to get the other color) for $36. steal!

my first irl post. can't wait to post more in the future. thanks MDPA! your question encouraged this post! :D
