Our First stop was Burlington Coat Factory  where Dear Daughter concentrated on tops!  She must have tried on 30,but was very decisive and had immediate No’s , Maybes and Definite Yes ones.

 I am not going to do individual pricing on these because quite frankly I am too tired….I began editing these photos at 6:30 am on Saturday morning after a crazy wake up call with barking Canine dogs and policemen shouting in my side yard, right outside my bathroom window at 5:30 a.m.  They apparently caught a shirtless teenager who my son thinks he knows.

So , yet another night of too little sleep… Today’s going to be a nap day.

DD declared, “This fit is to die for!”  after trying this one on! Navy studded and shirred top, right up her alley.

I bought her a white one like this last week. She recently bought Cobalt Pumps.

Stripes and side shirring were the appeal here.

SShhh! Don’t tell her I have this in bright orange….

Every Irsih Gal needs a geen top!

Happy to see she got something other than a solid or stripe. 

IMG_1272

Black sweater with side shirring… She is starting from scratch so basics are necessity! 

IMG_1273

She has purchased and I have thrifted a few cardigans lately…

The total Cost for these Items at Burlington were $106. 

These Next three are from Kohl’s

Lauren Conrad for $20… after the 20% off coupon I found online

So Jealous as I have been wanting one like this, but gotta say her body totally rocked this one!

Chaps top clearanced for $10.40 after coupon

Navy blue is well represented…

Our Final stop was a place she first discovered while at colllege in  Farmville and ultimitaley purchased her graduation dress.

That wonderful store is CATO where she had great success.

And I had success too, this is my new denim vest for $21.00 and my only purchase of the day! 

IMG_1260

Great Layering sweater!

IMG_1265

Surprise , surprise,, the girl who rocks jewel tones chose a pastel! 

IMG_1261

Apparently DD has a boho side!

IMG_1263

Grey straight leg pants in tuxedo style with lace… Not much to love about pants in her opinion, but with these details strong like! 

IMG_1264

Lighter dress pants instead of all darks..

IMG_1278

Lace peep toe booties!  

Total Spent at Cato was $120

Dear Readers, all my conversations in the three days leading up to this abou ther attitude seemed to work and we had a delightful day!

I did my part to by walking away during the picking out phase and only participating in the fit part, and of course hanging things back up…

I was quite proud of her choices and realized three new things about DD from this trip…First , I already mentioned she has a boho side, second that she is more a minimalist and third that although similar heights we are opposites,,, I can wear petite tops but not pants… She can wear petire pants,but not tops…  She also bought several basic tank tops for layering and even went home and ordered more from Kohls since her small size was not represented in store.

Now, she still needs skirts and a few more pants and jackets ( she only has one).  Her other requests are for Mary Jane Pumps, a great workhorse shoe, tights and belts. She also has a desire for a lace top in creme.   

She does have several  other tops that we purchased over the last year for her internship. 

What I feel is missing is prints which may be able to come in with the skirts and jackets. 

And the best part of all is that she still has $100 in the budget I allocated to the day.  Over the next few months we can fill in any holes she discovers.  Just a reminder she had nothing but jeans and tshirts for college life prior to this.. Welll not quite true she loves dresses and has about 8 to 10 fantastic ones!   This wardrobe is to take her to the next level of subsitute teaching for this next year and on to grad school the follwing year, so we have lots of time to refine it.  

Dear Readers, If you made it this far, thanks for joining my journey with my one and only daughter!
