Cyber Monday

Yesterday was Cyber Monday and I had every intention of shopping online for some holiday gifts since I missed out on Black Friday shopping. But, the outcome was quite different. After a long day back at work I got home to my roommate telling me there was a 50% off sale at Anne Taylor Loft. Well, that settled it. Not only did I not get any gifts for family or friends (I know, I know), I ended up only getting myself some presents. I have a birthday coming up so I'm playing it off as an early birthday gift to myself...please tell me others do that too?

Most of the items I got were for work, but a lot can be worn for holiday parties and outside work too. Here's what I picked up...

I got this corduroy shift skirt in this port color as well as navy. I can easily wear this when I'm teaching since it has a little stretch to it. The two colors go well with a lot of tops I own and can be paired with tights, booties, and a scarf for a weekend outfit. I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of this skirt this winter and during the holiday season. 


I don't know about you, but my family loves getting together around the holidays. We have family party after family party and this skirt is absolutely perfect. It's a great length and looks amazing with tights and a black or white shirt. Plus the sparkle adds the perfect touch :)


The last skirt I bought (are you sensing a theme to my purchases yet?) was this black and tan dotted skirt. The pattern is great for the professional look and it has pockets...a must for teaching. I liked the unique look of this skirt. It can easily be worn with black, white, or a deeper hued color.  


I got this patterned shirt to go with the skirts, pants, and jeans. It can easily be worn to work work on the weekends. It's a fun black or whtie print that just seems so easy to throw on. 


 The last thing I got was this long sleeved silk shirt. I was drawn to the bow at the neckline. It's so charming and, let's face it, anything with bows makes me think of Christmas. I can't wait to wear this with a black skirt or black jeans. 


All of these items are still available on the LOFT website if you like them. Hopefully you had some luck with Black Friday and Cyber Monday! Happy December!
