Vermont Purchases

When I die, you can scatter my ashes in front of Kate Spade
      As you know I was in Vermont last weekend and was able to do some shopping at the Manchester Designer Outlets. I was pretty proud of myself because I didn't go overboard. I am currently saving my money to buy a Kate Spade Beau Bag and I'm working on being a smart shopper by not just buying things because they're on sale, despite the temptation. 



       But, just because I'm working on being a smart shopper doesn't mean I didn't pick up some great items to add to my ever growing wardrobe! I ended up scooping up a jeweled sweatshirt at J Crew which I loved so much that I wore it the next day to the top of the mountain. I think this is a great investment because it's dressy but casual for those day trips to different places. 



       I also scored this long black cardigan with emerald green trip at the Ralph Lauren Polo store. It's super warm and would be perfect with a pair of leggings on a cold day. For some reason I gravitated towards a lot of black items on this trip...not sure why, but you can never go wrong with the always flattering color. 

       Finally, I was able to grab some accessories, a polka dotted scarf from The Loft which I'm a little obsessed with, a necklace from J Crew and a Kate Spade wallet that I got on clearance. This was the first time in forever that I didn't walk into Kate Spade and buy jewelry! It must be a sign that I should return soon to score some next time I go. Overall, it was a good trip and all my friends got some really cute stuff too. 
What have you bought recently that you're loving?

    I'm also thinking about buying my first major handbag (it's on my 101 in 1001!) and the Kate Spade Beau bag is definitely on my short list. It's so cute!
