How I Spent My $300 Gift Card

I did some shopping this weekend and spent my $300 gift card. Thanks for all the suggestions. I hit two stores - Anthropologie and Old Navy and got some great pieces for fall/winter. Here's a rundown.

First up is Anthropologie. I had a dressing room full of clothes and was pretty disappointed in a lot of what I tried on. The Somerset Cape and the Puckered & Pleated Cardigans were disappointing. I did however find three tops that I love (and ironically they are all purple).

First is the Ruffle Tier Tank. It is deep purple racerback tank with ruffles and gold thread detail. It's very flowy and flattering. You can either dress it up or dress it down. I think I will be packing this for a PA trip this weekend.

Next is one of my favorites - Gentle Current Cardigan! I loooove this sweater. It's so comfy and cozy. You can pair it with a long sleeve or short sleeve shirt. I can't wait for the weather to get cooler so I can wear this.

And finally we have this Morning Leaves Cardigan. I love the color palette on this shirt. It's a very flattering cut. I just have a tank underneath which works great.

My other stop on this shopping trip was Old Navy. I had a few casual items I wanted to try on after seeing them online. I was very pleased with what I got and the prices!

This outfit includes two of my purchases - V-Neck, Cableknit Sweater ($12) and Cargo Pants (in navy). These pants are sooo comfy! They will be perfect for hanging out on the weekends or casual Friday. The sweater was too good of a price to pass up and I don't have this color in my sweater collection.

I also got a cute, cotton dress for fall. It's a kelly green color and has three quarter length sleeves. It's going to be perfect for work when the temperature cools down. I can also pair it with a pair of leggings and my ballet flats.

And finally another pair of cargos. This pair is a dark green. I have a lot of cute tops that will go with these pants.
My fall/winter wardrobe is starting to shape up. I'm ready for the weather to start to get cooler. What are some of your favorite fall pieces?
