Are y’all tired of seeing my Annie Griffin finds at the warehouse sale?! Well, good thing this is my last one 🙂 Like the Lindsay dress I talked about last week, I got this gorgeous print dress for $82. Not only is the print beautiful and colorful, it’s comfortable! Has a nice elastic around the waist in case for over eating at dinner. I’m a sucka for interesting backs, too. This one fits the bill. For this hot and humid night in Hilton Head, it kept me somewhat cool – if that was possible.

The girl was also excited she could fit into a couple of dresses at Francesca’s. I remember when I could finally shop in the junior’s section, I thought that was just awesome. I just wish she would stop growing so fast!!

It is super hot in the ATL. Not only hot, but humid. Ugh. I love summer, but this weather is starting to get to me. Although I am not a shorts girl, I did pick these up at the Annie Griffin warehouse sale for next to nothing. They are nice and cool in this hot weather – and y’all know I love bright colors!

Annie Griffin Lindsey Dress

I scored at the Annie Griffin Warehouse Sale a while back. And it was fitting that I got the “Lindsey” dress with my coworker Lindsey. It was meant to be 🙂

I remember trying this dress on at Poppy’s in the spring, but the price tag definitely jumped out at me. Waiting paid off because I scored this beauty for $83! Uh…yes please!

I thought this was a perfect dress for my annual beach trip to Hilton Head Island! The colors just seem so summery and beachy to me. Even though I love to dress up, I loved this trip for the fact I probably put a full face of makeup on only twice. We ate so much at the house we rented (thanks to my mom, aunt, and uncle for doing most of the cooking!).

Colorful and Fun Printed Shift

Annie Griffin has wonderful prints. Wonderful fabrics. But…the label is no longer going to be designing clothes 😦 So those of us in the Atlanta area got to partake on the warehouse sale last week! I scored this awesome Kelly Shift Dress in Medallion. It was an amazing deal, and y’all know I’m a sucker for a deal! I actually snagged it from a woman who didn’t like it. I did the whole “um, are you going to get that?” thing. No shame. I was surprised I liked the shift style, but it fit great. It wasn’t too tight around the hip and thigh area at all. Score one for me! I wore this out for dinner and I got so many compliments. Score another one!

Ted Baker Torey small purse clutch

I am not much of a clutch person, but I thought having a cute nude clutch would be a good addition to my purse collection. I love how it has a chain to carry on my shoulder…or I could carry it as a true clutch. Versatility at its best.

Annie Griffin Silk Blouse

Sometimes a beautiful shirt just makes me happy. Yep. This one included. I scored this beauty at Annie Griffin’s warehouse sale in Atlanta. I just fell in love with the colors. I’ve added quite a few silk blouses to my closet. They are just easy outfits – just pair it with skinnies and some great jewelry…and walk out the door! Easy peasy.

And yes, I’ve jumped on the Kendra Scott Rayne bandwagon. But this necklace goes with so much! Versatile jewelry is the best kind of jewelry.

Annie Griffin Hudson Maxi Dress

When I saw this Annie Griffin Hudson Maxi dress at Poppy’s, a local Atlanta boutique, I was unsure about the Mykonos pattern. I was shopping with my coworkers and they said I had to try it on. So…I did. And I fell in love. The fabric is gorgeous – and surprisingly doesn’t even wrinkle being silk. It’s the perfect mix of colors – purples with a touch of green and orange. You know when you try something on and it’s just right? This is the dress. It was perfect to wear to a wedding last weekend.

David Yurman pearl ring and bangles

I thought I would add in some silver touches. These Yurman pieces are special to me, as they were all gifts from my mom and dad over the years (yeah, I know…I have amazing gift-giving parents!). I love layering the different bracelets. They are such classics that I will wear forever. Nothing better than having jewelry that is timeless!

Diaries of the Dressing Room

Hello! Thought I would capture some of my latest dressing room shopping excursions. I love trying on clothes…but that’s probably obvious by how much I love to shop 🙂

First stop was Poppy’s of Atlanta in Buckhead. They never disappoint in the cute dress department! This first Jude Connally fit and flare fit like a dream (similar but different fabric). His fabrics are amazing and travel so well. If y’all remember, I loathe ironing.

Next, Annie Griffin’s Hudson Maxi in the Mykonos pattern. They were having a trunk show that day, and I was drooling over all of the great patterns. And who doesn’t love a good maxi?! I couldn’t believe how long this was, as I’m just a little shy of 5’8″!

Up next, Bloomingdale’s at Lenox Square Mall. Their Ted Baker section is huge. It was hard not to grab everything to try on. Darn you, Ted, and your fabulous new prints. But here’s what I took with me to the dressing room. These first two were Bloomingdale’s exclusive pieces. I love the shirt’s pattern. And a hot pink skirt – how fun!

I saw this skirt online. I thought the jeweled pattern was fun. The best detail is the zipper going up the entire back of the skirt. It has a great stretch to it as well. The cami ran a little small, but I love the fabric and neckline.

This dress was calling my name! The style. The pattern. The print. The adorable tulip hem on the side. The pockets. Ted knocked this one out of the park.

The knit dress was so comfortable. And it literally felt like it was made for me. And I loved the midi length.

For fun, I tried on this cute Clover Canyon two piece outfit. Just because I’m a mommy doesn’t mean I can’t at least try on this trend. I really wanted to see how my stomach looked in the crop top. I didn’t think it looked too bad! (Can’t find this anywhere online – it must be a Bloomie’s exclusive.)

And last but not least, Anthropologie. Love walking around that store. I have to say, remember to look under the tables! So many things are hiding under there! These adorable shorts caught my eye. I’m a sucker for a cute pattern. This tank was really soft and I loved the little pocket.

I’m always on the hunt for dresses that I can wear to work. This one had a higher neckline and great length. The bottom part is a great jersey fabric that is ridiculously comfortable.

This was the second time I tried this stripe dress on. It’s a stiffer fabric, but it’s so freakin’ cute! I had to size up and wanted to see how it fit again.

So…what do you think I bought? And if you say everything … wrong answer 🙂
