Back Home Haul

Back Home Haul:
When I arrive home from being hidden away in Ames usually one of the first things I do is either eat or shop. So, when I came home for winter break I immediately needed to shop my favorite stores to score all of the amazing deals right now.

It's almost Christmas so there are a lot of good sales all around. During this time everyone is frantically trying to get their gifts finalized while I am casually browsing for myself. No worries though, I finished my gifts a long time ago. 

One of the stores I went to was Nordstrom Rack. Nordstrom Rack is either a miss or a super hit with me. This time it was a super hit! 

I have been eyeing these Sam Eldeman heels for quite some time. They have a unique shaped heel and are also a very dark colbot or purple color. However, I wasn't going to pay the original $50 or so dollars for them since they are such a unique color. I have seen these shoes at my Nordstrom Rack for quite some time now. So, when I saw them on this shopping trip I knew they had to be a reasonable discount by now. And boy was I right! I landed these shoes for a whopping $5! Yes $5! They were on super clearance and I couldn't be more happy with the purchase. 

Getting $5 shoes is a skill of mine at Nordstrom Rack. I got a pair of Sam Eldeman ballet flats on a previous trip a while back. THE LESSON HERE: be sure to keep an eye out for shoes that have been on the shelf for a while. Chances are they will go down eventually if no one scoops them up! 

The next stop was to Dry Goods where I picked up these gorgeous statement necklaces. The crystal one was only $7 and the pink one was $5! Who can beat that deal? 

I know it doesn't look like it but these are a pair of harem pants! For a long time I have been trying to find a flattering pair of these. But, since I am super short they usually look ridiculous on me but these fit great! They are from Aerie but American Eagle also has the same style I believe. If you catch American Eagle or Aerie now you can get them on sale! I got these for around $17 because they were 50% off! 

I am no a sweatpants person. However, if sweatpants were cute these would be the pair! They are super sparkly and are also kind of chic. I could totally see myself dressing these up for some reason. 

Who couldn't love this adorable pair of PJ shorts! Gotta love my polar bears. 

I am kind of obsessed with these jeans. They are black with a metallic cheetah print. For only $20 for Free People jeans I couldn't leave them behind! I snagged this deal at Nordstrom Rack. 

Here are some random things I have picked up. I was in need of a new pair of pearl studs. So I picked them up from my favorite jewelry boutique at a mall near me. Also I picked up a knit head band to wear around campus and out and about over break. 

At Target I picked up a Revlon lipstick in Black Cherry. I have heared so many beauty gurus rave about it that I had to pick it up. Then I got a new moss green nail polish on clearance then finally a pair of red tights to wear during the holiday season! 

Gilly Hicks was having their Semi-Annual sale so I picked up a few things for super cheap! I got a pair of jeggings and a pair of sparkly leggings. Their leggings are super nice and I think these will be great to wear if I want to be comfy but cute. 

Recently I have been obsessed with button downs. So I picked up these two button downs for only about $7 each! How can you pass up a deal like that? 

I also picked up a bra for only $9! But I thought it would be weird to show it but if you like Gilly Hicks bras this is the time to stock up my friends. 

That is the end of my back home haul! I will for sure be doing a Christmas haul as soon as I have seen all of my friends and family! Comment down below what you got if you went shopping the minuet you got back from college. Or if you have scored some good deals anywhere!
