D.C. Shopping Spree

I'm out here in D.C. visiting my mom and preparing to run the Army 10 Miler on Sunday. I had a nightmare travel day yesterday (more on that tomorrow). I slept in a little this morning and managed to procrastinate all day to make up for all the reading I did yesterday :)

After my mom got off work, we ran to Pentagon City Mall. I've only been there once before and I hit only half of one floor. Today, I made it all the way around one floor! Eventually, I'll make it to the other two. In due time. I don't think my credit card could handle it all at once.

I didn't get a back-to-school shopping trip so much this fall, so I guess I made up for it this time around. I made a pretty good haul:

I should have waited until the morning for better light, but I was excited. In total, I picked up 2 pairs of shoes, 2 dresses, 5 tops, 3 pairs of jeans, a pair of shorts, makeup and nail polish.

At Sephora, I picked up some great nail polish and some make up I've been needing.

I picked up some great pieces at Arden B. I love the animal print shorts and sparkly top.

And I picked up a dress for my graduation this December.

Not the greatest photo, but you get the idea
It's not a "traditional" or typical graduation dress, but it's pretty different and will work perfectly with some tights and boots or heels. One stop closer to graduation!

We hit Nordstrom's Rack and Gap, where I probably did the most damage. At Gap, I picked up the three pairs of jeans: 2 skinny jeans and a brighter blue pair that was on sale. One of the skinny jeans was half off, which was a nice surprise.

I picked up three basic shirts, a great simple jersey dress and a nice multi-animal print blouse. I also picked up these two great pairs of shoes.

I LOVE the heels. They're Chinese Laundry and were $50 cheaper than the original price. And they're hot. The boots are super comfy Muk Luks and were only $15.

I'm pretty happy with all my purchases. I won't be shopping again until after I graduate and get a real job. And I have someone who can take outfit pictures for this weekend! No mirror posts until Monday!


  1. if i go crazy shopping tomorrow, it's your fault! and i'm gonna be that girl and mention that you now have two pairs of red checkery type boots haha.

  2. I know I do! But the new ones are perfect for snow and are nice and warm! And you can blame me, my mom was a horrible Jenny replacement ;)

  3. im a lil crazy for those houndstooth boots.

    1. They're perfect for chilly weather! Nordstrom's Rack is a great place!
