Top: Forever 21 (similar)
Skirt: c/o Chic Wish

Sandals: super old (similar here, here – on sale + 60% off and very comfortable)  (cute option

Bag: Coach (similar) (love these affordable options 1 and 2)

Watch: Kate Spade

Hope everyone had a great relaxing weekend!

I was going to take a moment and talk about how adorable this skirt is, but realized that you already might have noticed that part 😉

Instead, I’m going to tell you about these amazing sandals that are on sale right now plus they’re an additional 60% off w/code SAVE60 (love me a great deal). Ann Taylor is actually having an addition 60% off sale items, online only…and not sure when this expires.

I purchased the above mentioned sandals last week in a different color at the store, but noticed they are even cheaper online right now.  Even though I’m not a huge fan of their ankle closure/snap, they’re really comfortable and look preeety nice on the feet (I’ll try to post a picture this week either on the blog or Instagram @lilly_101).
The 3 inch heel makes them perfect for all day wear. I’m tempted to get another color since they go with pretty much anything and you can’t really beat the price. I did have to go 1/2 size up, but that’s usually the case with Ann Taylor shoes for me.

Thank you for reading!

    I debated about ordering these heels last night but it had some pretty bad reviews online so I passed. I maybe tempted to get the navy.Alicewww.happinessatmidlife.com

      I really love mine! My only complaint is the ankle strap which really is not that big of a deal..I'm just not the biggest fan of the closure. But they really look flattering…anyone could pull these off. 🙂

      Thank you :). Hopefully they'll bring it back. H&M's around here tend to bring certain pieces back.
