SPRING BREAK CLOTHING HAUL!

As I’m sitting here writing this piece, I’m sad to see that spring break is coming to an end. The past week has been wonderful and I honestly think that every college student feels the same way I do about the amazing things a week off can do for a human being. I’m relaxed and recharged. These are certainly two words that were not in my vocabulary a little over a week ago.

While home on break, I’ve spent some of my time going in and out of stores. Picking up cute looks for the spring and summer, I wanted to share all of the awesome deals I got!

South Moon Under

Our local South Moon Under is one of my favorite places to treat myself when I’m home from school. The quality of the pieces I get there is always phenomenal. Although it can be slightly pricey for the average college student, I personally think everything I’ve purchased there was well-worth the price tag.

Another thing I love about South Moon Under is that a lot of the stuff is clothing I’d see online but never purchase because of questions on sizing. I don’t know about you… but I hate having to order things online in a few different sizes only to return the ones that didn’t work. I’d much rather go into a store and try everything on, instead. South Moon Under provides me with this opportunity which I love!

1. English Factory Tassel Tee (NOW: $22.49 || ORIGINALLY: $54)

(NOW: $22.49 || ORIGINALLY: $54)

This shirt is so fun! Perfect for a spring/summer day or a casual Friday night dinner with friends, I can’t wait to rock this shirt with a simple pair ripped jeans

2. Dolce Cabo Faux Fur Long Vest

(NOW: $59.99 || ORIGINALLY: $118)

While most of the stuff I bought over break was geared for spring or summer, this vest was too amazing to give up. Here in NY, it’s unfortunately still pretty chilly. With a blizzard just a few days ago, this piece will certainly get some mileage before I have to put it away in my closet for the next few months. It is the softest vest I have ever tried on!

I always want to be honest with you guys, though. The only is that it sheds like crazy. I’ll probably carry around a lint roller in my purse or backpack whenever I wear it… but after pondering this small problem I decided it was well worth.

3. La Blanca Island Goddess One Piece Swimsuit

(NOW: $103.70 || ORIGINALLY: $122)

When I stopped by my local South Moon Under, they were having a 20% sale on all of their swimwear. This one piece was calling my name and when I tried it on it fit in all the right places. As someone who has always had a complicated relationship with swimwear, I was elated to find a swimsuit that was cute and actually made me feel my age.

4. Harper Mid-Rise Fray Hem White Jean Shorts

(NOW: $25 || ORIGINALLY: $38)

As someone who is getting antsy for the warm weather, I saw these white shorts today and jumped at the chance to try them on. If I buy spring and summer clothing, the warm weather will come faster… right?! That’s my logic for now at least! Super comfy and really cute, I figured I would be able to wear them a lot once the weather is nicer. From pairing them with a simple black tee to a navy long sleeve, there are endless options when it comes to putting outfits together with these shorts. A pair of solid white shorts is certainly a staple piece in many closets.

5. Rayna Classic Club Wood Sunglasses ($14)

Every few months, I love to get a new pair of “cheap” sunglasses that I can wear without being worried that I’ll scratch the lens or lose them along the way. Allow these sunglasses are currently $14 online, my local Franchesca’s was having a 2 for $20 promo that I just couldn’t pass up. Two pairs of sunglasses for $10 each… that’s unbelievable if you ask me! After trying on several pairs at Francesca’s, I decided upon these two pairs of sunglasses. I can’t wait to start wearing them ASAP.

6. Lucky Flat Lens Aviator Sunglasses  ($14)

 

I’m so excited to be able to rock all of these new pieces in the weeks to come. Spring Break 2017 is officially coming to a close but what a wonderful week it’s been.

I hope you enjoyed this haul! Please feel free to comment and reach out if you enjoyed this post.
