Anyway, this weekend I was bound & determined to spend some time in Forever 21 because I'm constantly seeing great pieces of clothing from there featured on other blogs & on Pinterest, yet I've never really shopped there. So on Saturday I made a visit & tried on a few items, but walked away with nothing. HOWEVER, I kept thinking & thinking about a pair of pants that I had tried on & decided "why not!". They were a whopping $17.80 (regular price), so not a huge investment if I don't wear them a ton - I don't see that being the case though!
So, my first clothing purchase from Forever 21 & my first pair of Olive Pants (or Olive anything)!
I'm in love with this outfit & I think that's because it's not my typical style, which is incredibly refreshing! Also, my obsession of the week is Yellow accessories!!

Can we talk about these Cut Out Booties for a second. I just picked these up from Target on clearance for $17.48. I don't see them on the Target website, but you may be able to find them at your local store. I know it's somewhat silly to still be buying boots, but these cut out booties are a great item to transition into warmer weather...they'll be great with boyfriend jeans, skirts & dresses until things really warm up this Summer. The price couldn't be beat!
I also purchased Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous after seeing this pin from Pinterest (click on the image to follow link). Thus far I'm quite pleased with both the color & the wear time. It's also a low cost investment if you're looking for something new. It definitely fulfilled my desire for a coral/orange-y lipstick for the Spring. I've also used some of the other products mention on the pin, & there are a few more I'd like to try as well.
Overall I'm pleased with my Forever 21 experience & plan on visiting more regularly. The store we have here is quite large, so it can seem intimidating, but just go in with an open mind. You may walk away empty handed, or you may find something great!
P.S. I previously used this shirt on this post, Shanna just talked about her love of Forever 21 here, & Gina just talked about her new Olive Skinnies here (Monday's post).
