Shopping Spree

This weekend I did a little shopping, so I thought I would share my finds. I have been eyeing this dress from the Limited since it came out a few months ago. The original price was a little steep for a dress I will probably only wear three or so times this season (I feel like with dresses you can't put them in your weekly rotation like pants, which I totally rewear over and over and over again - is this just me???), but I had some Limited virtual dollars so I was sold. And with a new dress, a girl's got to get new shoes. I am really not that big of a shoe person (gasp!), but I was head over heels (pun totally intended) with these from Kohl's. Aren't they cute? I got the tan color, but I couldn't copy that picture. I have to say the quality isn't that fabulous (many in the store had imperfections), but I couldn't pass them up. On Saturday, my mother-in-law and I went to a craft fair. I picked up a few cute things including these homemade gift card holders that a friend of hers sells.
One of the sellers has an etsy shop (Tweet Baby Designs) and I picked up this necklace (don't you LOVE????)
and this pacifier clip as a gift. I have no idea who I will give it to...luckily I have no less than 18 friends who are pregnant right now.
Lastly, I did lots of planting (I had to shop for the plants, so I think that falls under a shopping post). This plant in the center is actually one that I put in my garage and it went dormant for the winter. I just put it out Saturday and it is already starting to get its leaves. (This picture was taken Saturday, hence the picture that looks like two sticks in a pot. Ooooh, maybe I will do a progress post later. I am sure everyone would be waiting on pins and needles for that one.)
I did this little number for my front porch.
Let me know any other fun finds/good deals I am missing out on. Clearly, I have a problem. :)

Ohmy! That dress is adorable!!! I am in LOVE wiht the Limited! I just always end up getting stuff from them as opposed to anywhere else! But, I agree.. dresses cant be put in the normal rotation, so you shouldnt drop a ton of dough... And those shoes are SO ADORABLE! I bet they're even cuter in nude/tan!

That necklace is fabulous! I've bookmarked her page b/c you realize the necklace is in TU colors, right?! Which means I have to have one! I never look at anything blue and gold without thinking "I need it." :)

Yes, the necklace is to die for! I'm thinking you'll get a ton of use out of it this summer!

So jealous of your planters! They look beautiful.

Good finds.
