After a long day of wedding dress shopping with my mom and sister (we found the dress for my sister… so exciting… I wish I could say more about it, but I’m sworn to secrecy right now.) I stumbled in to Ann Taylor. A large “40% off everything” sign lured me in, although I swear it had to have been fate as I haven’t bought anything from Ann Taylor since college, when I needed an “interview suit.”
Upon entering the store, I started to feel light-headed almost immediately. So much cute clothing. So many great striped tops, so much navy blue, just pure amazing-ness. (Wow, Ann Taylor, you’ve come so far from your days of high-waisted pants and boxy jackets!)
My favorite thing in the store is probably this. I brought it home with me – couldn’t say no to the gold button details on the shoulder… obsessed!
