Jackpot

Top: Express via TJMaxx, $8 // Skirt: Urban Outfitters, $5 // Necklace: Wild Man Vintage, $13 // Shoes: Payless

Yesterday was the Annual Sidewalk Sale. The deals are hit and miss, but crowds and heat are guaranteed. Being the dedicated bargain hunter that I am, I dragged myself out of bed extra early to shop before work. Because Urban Outfitters is notoriously chaotic on the day of the sale, I deliberately avoided it and tried to cover as much ground as possible in my brief window of time. It was a total bust. I didn't find a single thing. 

While driving home from work, I decided I might as well try my luck at Urban Outfitters. Going in with low expectations, I found the crowd had dissipated but the cute clothes had not! I left with quite a haul: two skirts (including the darling one above), two dresses, a pair of shorts, two shirts and three pairs of sunglasses.
Now I will probably fall victim to the Urban Outfitters Sidewalk Sale Phenomenon. Namely, I will run into many girls wearing the exact same items as me... but it's worth it!

Nice! I have that same necklace! Remember I got it at a flea market about a week after I saw an identical one featured in Lucky.
