I stepped out Saturday mid-morning to the mall to exchange a pair of earrings.  I ended up buying two pairs of gold studs at Belk; one dressy knot pair & gold half balls that are more everyday.

I also hopped over to the Loft & took advantage of their crazy sale prices.  I bought khaki cords for $19, a thick red turtleneck cable sweater for $15, a great camel colored sweater for $25 {I wore it out to dinner so that’s SOS #2} & a pink twisted boat-necked long-sleeve top for $7.50. I love Loft, especially if you don’t mind waiting a little bit to catch their stuff on sale.

After the Loft, I headed back to Belk since I’d parked there and stopped by the Lilly Pulitzer section.  I was keeping my eyes open for a winter dress to wear to the shower Saturday as well as for a work meeting the first week in March.  I  love Lilly’s Shauna Tunic dress in Black Novelty Big Bang, but even at 30% off, I couldn’t justify the price.  But on the sale rack one step over was Vineyard Vines Charlie dress 75% off in my size.  At $45 & pretty perfect fit with tights, shoes & cardigan to match at home, I bought it & headed home to get ready.

I took over 90 photos at the shower, but there are only two photos that I’m in.  I plan to do a post later on about the shower, but here’s the one with me & two good friends as the SOS photo.
