Happy Fun, Free Friday lovelies!

Online Discounts

New season, new reason to shop right?

I love browsing through spring lookbooks now and checking out the new colors, prints, and shapes.  I hadn’t dropped by J.Crew in a while and very happily oohed and aahed over pieces from their newest collection.  I love how they create classic pieces that can be paired with clothing I already own.  This weekend is a great time to shop because everything in store is 30% off with a purchase over $200 or 25% with a purchase over $100.  Don’t fret if you’re like me and don’t have a store nearby, you can get 25% off online with code HAPPYSPRING and there is no minimum spend to use that discount.  You can also go through Mr. Rebates for extra savings so you can actually save more if you’re buying less than $200 of goodies.

Here are a few pieces that caught my eye:

This pleat front mini skirt is classic, but comes in such fun colors like this soft bubblegum pink.

Here are my tips for bringing on spring:
