I hope that your Friday is starting off well. Mine is okay. We dropped my step-son off at Ball State yesterday. It was a little bittersweet but I know that he is thrilled to begin his new journey.
I absolutely hate it when Ann Taylor sends out emails. I know that I have to look at the new arrivals section and I always hope that I don't find anything.
That was the case when I received the new arrivals email about two weeks ago. My wish did not come true. Sighing...
I now have six new items on my wish-list and I really want them. Usually, when I see something on the website that I want I will just add it to my wish-list. Once I have a moment I print out my wish-list and go to my local Ann Taylor store to see it in person.
I am very fortunate to have two stores that have remained in our city. In some cases when I arrive at the store and view the item I am so glad that I did purchase it because it was not as pretty in person or the item is see-through. That has saved me lots of headaches.
This weekend my husband took me to the Ann Taylor and I was hoping that the items would look like crap but.... they don't and now I can't wait until they go on sale!
The first item on my wishlist is this floral wrap flare dress. Isn't it the perfect green? I love the floral design on it and the cut of the dress.
It looked great on the mannequin and will be staying on my list.
Next was the pleated tie blouse that matched the dress. I saw this immediately with one of my black swing skirts, a single strand of pearls, and a great pair of kitten heels. So this is staying on the list. This blouse is also available in winter white and was also added to my list.
The second dress that was on my list was this beautiful pleated skirt dress in blue glaze. Isn't it stunning? I saw this with some kitten heels and a pearl bracelet. This would also be great in the autumn with a pair of brown heels and a beautiful cardigan. I must get it!
Fourth on my list are these great houndstooth pumps. I MUST HAVE THESE! I am trying to wait until these go on sale. I don't want to pay full price so I am trying to be patient. I have a feeling that I am going to love these. So chic and classic!
I had to add these too! These would look great with everything on this list. These are the Reese Suede pumps in frosted almond.
I am loving all of these finds from Ann Taylor. I am trying my hardest to wait for the best prices but sometimes thing sell out so we will see how it goes. I did stop in Ann Taylor Loft to look around and I did end up finding some great items there.
This pearl necklace was on sale and is very elegant. The pearls almost look like saltwater pearls. It's lovely.
I really like this floral wrap top.
But I end up buying...
This wonderful and whimsical pleated polka dot dress. Oh my gosh! This dress is soooo elegant. It flows behind you as you walk. It's just perfect! I love it so.
Well, I hope you guys have enjoyed this elegant finds from my favorite store. Please share if you have any of these pieces. I would love to hear about them.
Thanks for reading! Enjoy your weekend!
