Back to School SUCCESS!!!

I decided that I needed to put my big girl pants on and tackle the Back to School shopping again today. So, with a lot of prayer and a little determination, I took off!!!

I didn't want to spend a lot of money because our money needs to go towards paying for our IUI. So I decided to hit up some of the cheaper stores...Kohl's, TJMaxx, and Marshalls. I can ALWAYS find great deals and adorable clothes at these places IF I'm in the mood to take the time to LOOK through the tons of clothes...especially when they are ALL just thrown EVERYWHERE!!!

Here are a few of my finds...

This bubble-sleeve sheath dress from Kohl's is so cute---I especially love the sleeves. AND I picked up a $3 bracelet that matches the greens and purples in the dress.

This animal print dress REALLY makes my waist look small because of the knot center. I actually bought three more of these dresses, but in different colors and different prints. You can't have too many of a good thing :)

This picture does NOT do this dress justice. It is my FAVORITE buy of today...for $15.99. I'll have to take a picture of myself in it...because it really is flattering.

The top just makes this's a zebra print with a little bit of ruffles on the buttons. Don't let my pictures fool ya...this one is my FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL outfit :)

I REALLY wish I could have found a picture of this top online...because once again, my amatuer picture taking does not show how adorable this top is. I LOVE the little ruffles on the sleeves and I think this will work with some black slacks and black heels.

And this is my STEAL of the day...this skirt was only $4.99!! It is SO comfortable and I couldn't beat the price.

I spent roughly $250 and bought at least 25 outfits. So I would say that my Back to School shopping was definitely a SUCCESS!!

Oh, but you aren't going to get to wear them very long because you are going to get pregnant!!! =) =)

And I think that the blue shirt would look cute with that black skirt. Maybe?

Good job on the finds- super cute!

You did a great job shopping! i love Kohls and Ross. The zebra print dress is adorable. I bet it makes you look tiny. Do you dress up for work? I usually wear black pants and a dress top. I like to wear skirts and knit dresses while its warm. I never wear hose though.
