I've been really good about spending recently--largely because I am trying to declutter and discipline myself. I did allow myself a J. Crew mini-splurge, however, as they currently have 40% off sale items and free shipping (on all sale orders). Most of what I bought were items I'd already considered buying and will be decent staples. Alas, I checked the sale late and most of the items I'd sought--mainly cashmere sweaters and cardigans--were long gone. Here's what I bought.
I got both these shorts (sans belt) and the t-shirt. I won't be wearing them together as in this picture. I realized I needed shorts in this heatwave and for $23, these couldn't be beat. I liked the t-shirt when it was on sale for $19 and liked it even more at 8. So much so, I got it in the other colorway:
I also bought a gingham shirt in violet (I could wear this in hot weather and layer in the spring/fall). Again, it was around $24.
I found the shirt and the ts by searching by size and suspect they may not ship as they were hidden items and may have sold out. If so, it isn't a huge deal but they do seem like good staples.
I got the following sweater in a larger size (to ensure it drapes I got the L). I've had it in my cart forever and wish I'd realized that shipping was free as I lost a cashmere cardi that I'd have also worn thinking I had to have $150 to get free shipping. This cost around $25 and will be something I will wear. Again, I realize just how much I love stripes...
My other sale splurge was workout gear from the gap--again it hasn't shipped (40% off three hour only promo so I got some capri leggings and sports bra tops that never go on sale). I have a feeling that it's another order that will be canceled, and it is one I need. I work out often enough that I really need to have more pants and bra tops but am cheap enough not to want to spend a fortune.
