So when I first bought this sweater I couldn’t stop thinking about how much it looked like funfetti cupcakes. I loved the pattern so much I couldn’t resist buying it. I tend to enjoy priding myself on the fact that I am a pretty good bargain shopper. I would live in H&M and their deals if I could, as clearly shown above! With that being said, I do like to splurge every now and then. Although I received this amazing Donna Morgan jacket as a gift, after completing my summer internship with them in 2012, I wouldn’t mind spending the ticket price on it. I have had it for around three years now, and it is still in prestige condition. I hate when some women feel guilty about spending more money on clothes, because chances are it will last longer and you will wear it more often. So never shy away from that ticket price because you’re afraid of what your friends would think! Lucky enough, Black Friday is my favorite holiday and I scored this unbelievable Express floppy hat for only $25. When I purchased it I didn’t realize how many seasons I could wear it in. Not only winter with a sweater but also spring in a sundress. I am especially looking forward to breaking this bad boy out on my Spring Break trip to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, come March!
