Spring Haul 2013: Forever 21 & … Costco?!

With all of the Spring sales going on, I just couldn’t help myself.  I don’t particularly like shopping in stores, but I’m totally down with shopping online.  No hassle, no driving, no dressing rooms, no getting dressed.  Uhhh…what? I don’t wear yoga pants every day…  I’m getting off topic.  Let’s just get to it, shall we?

Forever21 has become my new favorite place to shop because they have such a huge assortment and their prices are unbeatable.  Normally, I’d be concerned with quality, but I have to say that I’m really impressed by how their clothes hold up over time.  Shopping in the store can be overwhelming and intimidating, but shopping online couldn’t be easier.  The toughest part is narrowing down your cart after you’ve added everything you think is cute and realizing you have $400 worth of stuff.

Leopard Skirt & Black Sleeveless BlouseMy OOTD for church last week!  I just couldn’t resist matching my leopard buttons with my leopard skirt.  For a more casual look, pair with black or nude wedges.

Black Sleeveless BlouseA closer look at that sleeveless chiffon top with the leopard button detail.

Sheer Polka Dot ShirtI love this sheer polka dot shirt.  With tops like this I tend to match my bra to the accent (in this case the dots), but for a subtler look, wear with a nude bra.  Of course, you can always layer a cami underneath for a less revealing look.

Black Dolman Banded Bottom TopCream Dolman Banded Bottom TopThe lightweight fabric and flowy fit of this dolman sleeved top are perfect for keeping your arms covered in warmer weather.  Pair with a bright colored necklace or scarf to spice up this basic piece.

Lace Collar ShirtThe collar is my favorite part of this shirt!  It’s just one of a few ultra-feminine details that make this blouse so gorgeous.  Pop over to my instagram (@glowofgrace) to see this top featured in my OOTD yesterday.  And while you’re there, click that little follow button to show this girl some love! 🙂

Black TankWhite TankI’m all about accessories, so basics like this tank are an absolute must for my wardrobe.  You can never have to many classic scoop neck tanks!

Mint Vneck CardiganThe answer to my bright cardigan prayers!  The relaxed fit of this vneck cardigan is perfect for layering over tops or dresses this Spring.

Back Zip French Terry PulloverI know I know…another long sleeved purchase, but I swear I’m not a total nutcase!!  This is a super lightweight, french terry top with a fun back zip detail.  The bright coral gives this cozy pullover a Spring feel.

Sequined Bomber JacketWhy is that when the weather gets warm, places feel the need to crank the A/C up so much that their establishments resemble a walk-in freezer?! This fun, sequined bomber jacket will be perfect to throw on over a basic tee or tank in just such occasions.

Light Wash Denim JacketClearly I’m all about the light layers.  I’ve been in desperate need (okay, well want) for a light wash denim jacket to throw on over all of my sundresses, and this 3/4 sleeve number was exactly what I’ve been looking for!

Leopard Maxi DressAnd now for my random Costco find!!  I was shocked by how cute and well-made this dress turned out to be!! I don’t know if I love the ruched, elastic waist, but that’s easily concealed with a big belt (as shown above).

I hope y’all enjoyed this Spring haul! It was certainly fun to film!  As more of you reach out to me via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or YouTube, the more I feel like I’m talking to friends when I sit down to film.  So drop me a line on your social media of choice!  I really love hearing from you!

Best & Blessings,
