Birthday Goodies

Back in this post, I mentioned a few things I was hoping to buy for spring. I cleared a whole day during my spring break to hit the mall.  I later realized in my shopping frenzy, I missed my doctor's appointment. Oops!

My goal was to stretch my birthday money as far as it could go. Meaning, find some great bargains and bring home lots of good stuff.

At this point, I had already bought the new Adele CD and two pair of yoga pants off my original wish list. Quick side note: before I purchased the yoga pants (that were already on sale for 2 for 50.00), I searched online for an extra coupon. The first couple sites brought no such luck. I didn't give up easily and after another 5 minutes of searching, I found an extra 20% coupon. Jackpot. Another $10.00 saved. Ok back to the mall trip...

Remember this picture from Easter? I bought that blue dress on clearance for $20.00 and the belt separately for $12.00. Now if I could just get some sun on those pasty white legs.
I also came home with this green necklace, pair of earrings, and shoes:
Remember how I originally wanted toms? Well, my narrow feet were swimming in those babies and I liked this pair more. And they fit great. The shoes came in at $63.00, the most expensive item I bought. The necklace with $16.00 and the earrings were $6.00.

I came home with $20.00 in my wallet.

I felt it was a very productive trip. I've still looking for a spring purse...

Anyone else go shopping recently? Or find any good deals this spring?
