Olive Wine

After I dropped off my husband at the airport this weekend, I stopped by the Neiman Marcus Last Call store in Grapevine. The entire store was an additional 25% off of the lowest ticketed price for President's Day, and discounts were stacked throughout the store. I found these Splendid satin flat espadrilles in the clearance shoe section. The original price was $55 and they were marked 50% off = $27.50. I was able to stack another 25% at checkout, bringing the total to $20.62. I am not very familiar with this brand and I would not have spent $55 on flats, but I loved this olive color and couldn't resist them for just over $20.
Cardigan: Banana Republic; Top: MICHAEL Michael Kors (old)
Jeans: c/o Paige Premium Denim (2012)
Bracelet; eBay (gift from my husband)
Tote: Calvin Klein (buy in white)
Flat Espadrilles: Splendid (buy in cobalt blue)
I normally wear a size 6 in shoes, but that fit right at the tip of my toes and felt awkward, so I went up a full size and they are much more comfortable.  I wore this to lunch with some friends on Sunday, but there was no one to take photos and I wasn't going to ask them because that's just embarrassing. I wasn't ashamed when I repeated the outfit yesterday to run the kids to school and made them take these in the driveway before we left. Well, maybe a little ashamed...but then it started raining and I forgot about it.
This is Day 6 of the Take One, Pass It On Challenge and I am just waiting for a "Color Correcting" challenge because I clearly can't do that.  I usually import all my images to Lightroom and then find white or black color in a photo and apply that filter to the entire photo set, but in this batch, there is nothing black or white! I thought they looked okay color wise until I pulled the one from the last batch for this image. It doesn't even look like the same sweater! One day, you day I will master my photos. I am linking up with Tara of the Penniless Socialite and Sharon of The Tiny Heart for their Look What I Got Linkup.

  5. Hey! It's Lindsay from BlogTrends. I had no idea you lived in Dallas! I would love to get together sometime. My husband and I are moving to Austin next week! :)

  6. Hey Ana, I tried to reply to your comment, but then I noticed you are set up as a no-reply, so I'll just respond here. I haven't started reading The Fault in Our Stars yet, because I was in the middle of 2 other books, and also just picked up 4 books from the library. I will very likely post a review when I do read it.

  7. Great deal on those flats! I wish I had a Last Call near me. Thanks for linking up!

  8. I didn't do any shopping during the weekend. I did order a few things on Friday but returned everything except 1 thing. I'm trying to be good, but I am over budget this month :(

  9. I just discovered your blog, and I'm glad to meet another blogger from Texas! I love that bracelet btw, it's exciting all the wonderful items you can buy from ebay.


  10. Thank you, everyone! I don't even have a budget (yet) and I know that I would have annihilated it by week 3. :(


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
