Weekend Steals & Deals + Outfit Ideas

Happy Halloween friends!  I hope you have some fun plans for the night.  I’m looking forward to getting the candy I bought for the trick-or-treators out of the house- I keep sneaking little pieces!  Please tell me you do that too.  We spent last night making spider hands for my son’s class, and let me tell you, it’s not as easy as you’d think.  My popcorn was too big, so it wasn’t fitting easily inside the fingers.  I had to smash some of it to get it down in there.  Just a word to the wise if you ever attempt this.  You can see a cute video of this action on my Instagram.  And I’m such a girl.  Even the spider rings kinda creep me out.  But he thinks they’re so cool.  🙂 This little guy will be the cutest Transformer ever tonight “Optimous Prime” in action!
As for the weekend steals and deals, I found a super steal for you this weekend that I’m excited to share.  We all know how hot plaid is right now and on a quick Target run this week, I found some awesome button-down plaid shirts here and here.  I already wore the top one “vivid blue” (not sure why they call it that- it’s more teal). I didn’t see this one in the store, but I want this color combo too.  And FYI, I like these to fit comfy, so instead of my usual size small, I liked how the medium fit better.  The bottom one I accidentally picked up a large, so I need to exchange it.  I like how it only buttons half-way down, great for leggings and boots.  But, the cool thing is, Target is having a buy 1, get 1 50% off on clothing, slippers, and sleepwear and free shipping on all items so these are a great deal.  
My favorite, easy way to wear a plaid shirt is with jeans, tall boots and a chunky scarf. 
Y’all know I can’t get enough of a good striped tee.  This 3/4 length top from Ann Taylor was $49.50, went on sale for $24.99 and with 60% off all sale items, it’s currently only $10.  Doesn’t get much better than that! The added length on the back is nice for covering the tush too.  
For some super cute dresses, I adore these Eliza J brand that are marked down 40% from $98 to $58.80.  I always preferred a dress for work, made pulling an outfit together a no brainer. 
You might have a favorite pair of black pants, but how about a fantastic pair of grey?  These LOFT pants (which I’ve always found to be a great fit) are also marked down 40%, from $69.50 to $41.70.

If you still need a winter coat, I found this perfect Michael Kors peacoat with gold accents on sale for 40% off, regularly $180, now $107.98.  I have a white winter coat and get a lot of use out of it.  

happy halloween!

  1. I just spotted the teal plaid top there this week, and now I can't believe I passed it up! Hopefully, they still have some left this weekend. And, I'm right there with you on the fit- I like them a little looser than normal and think a medium usually works great. I just posted about my love for navy blazers (http://thejoyfulhomeblog.blogspot.com), and one of my favorite looks is one paired with a plaid shirt. Both of these would be great options!

  2. I would have had a hard time making those spider hands too! That pre-Halloween candy? I call those "practice" bags! I ran into Kmart today to grab some storage bins and one of those plaid flannel shirts was in my way. Wasn't planning on it but I love them too!
