President's Day Holiday Sale Finds
I do quite a bit of my shopping online, but this weekend I decided to check out the President's Day Holiday sales in person. I did some research online first, so that I could try on a number of pieces before committing to a purchase. My first stop on this sale hunt was Ann Taylor, advertising 40% off all regular priced items and an additional 50% off sale items. I originally walked in to check out bow pumps that had been restocked online, but my local store did not carry that style. However, I also needed some new tops for work and there were so many pretty new spring designs to check out! I walked out with this floral ruffle bib top in a petite XS (40% off), as well as this peplum sweater in navy XS (already on sale + extra 50% off). I am also loving these bow pumps and these flower pumps.
My next stop was H&M, where I went in looking for tops but ended up walking out with this pair of paper-bag waist wide leg cropped pants. They weren't on sale, but at $34.99 they were already a steal and I purchased a size 4. This was an unexpected purchase, because I saw these pants merchandised by the front of the store and tried them on a whim. I never expected to like them, but they are ultra-comfortable and my new favorite work pants! These wide-legged pants are versatile in that they can be styled with a tucked in blouse and heels for the office, then with a bodysuit or t-shirt and wedges for the weekend.
My final stop was J Crew, advertising 30% off everything, including sale styles. I had to leave after that because I found too many good deals and had to cut myself off! These blush patent ballet heels were a perfect replacement for an older pair of nude bow pumps that had worn out, and I purchased my normal size. They have a comfortable low heel and will be perfect for long days at the office, plus they remind me of Ferragamos at a fraction of the price. Win-win! These high-waist skinny jeans fit perfectly at my usual size 25 and at $32 were too good of a deal to pass up (not sure why the regular version are not showing as on sale online, maybe they were only on sale in store?). This wrap sweater is a soft merino wool, and I absolutely love the copper rose color for spring! Size XS fit perfectly. It also comes in four other neutral colors, and after receiving so many compliments the other day I ordered the navy as well. Finally, I tried on several different bodysuits because I love bodysuits. No worrying about your top coming untucked! I settled on this simple ivory crew neck long sleeve style because it will go with everything, and found that it runs large (I bought an XXS). I also tried this ribbed stripe bodysuit and this button up bodysuit that would both look great styled for the office.

My apologies for the mediocre cell phone photos, but you will see all of these pieces style in more outfits soon! I just wanted to share today so that you would not miss out on these weekend deals. If you have the day off tomorrow, I hope you enjoy your long weekend and be on the lookout for a new outfit post from me tomorrow!
