Peach & Mint

Blouse: New York & Company 
Skirt: Ann Taylor, thrifted {similar here} {and here}

In 2004, I was a 23 year old working girl and I didn't have much money to spend so I bought a fair amount of clothes from New York & Company. Our local college town mall didn't have a ton of options - I'm pretty sure there wasn't even an Ann Taylor, for example, and if there was, I wouldn't have been able to afford it anyways. With promotions, coupons, and sales at NY&Co, I was able to buy a lot of things fairly cheap. Not much has stuck around since then, but I did save this top, which is perfect for all the spring pastels on trend right now. And really, does an abstract print like this ever go out of style?

Have a great weekend friends! :-)

I shopped at NY&Co alot as well when I first started working. The prices were extremely reasonable, and with coupons and felt like they were always giving things away for free! This top looks great and I like the skirt! Let me know what you decide on the H&M blouse. I can't decide if I should keep or return the dress ahhh!

Ha! Bandit is such a ham for the camera lately! :)
And your comment on my blog made me laugh at DO you talk about taking photos of yourself and not sound kinda weird? I totally avoid talking about it for the most part :)

And I love this look Mary Ann! How awesome that you have a top from so long ago that is still on trend today (the pattern + the mint?!) And as always, your KS pieces look like they were made for you :)

Have a great weekend friend!

It's a cute top! I'd keep it too. I used to shop there all the time years ago. I was working at the Limited corp and I got a 40% discount on top of all of the great deals. Couldn't resist. :) xoxo

I know I seem infactuated with your bunny but I just have to say the cuteness is KILLING me!!! What is his/her name? Did she/he want you to pick her/him up in the first shot? Soooo freaking adorable. So is the last shot!!

Great top too! Loving the mint hints in it!

Samantha said...

Mary Ann!!

Sometimes, I swear we were separated at birth! I used to do the same (and remember Casual Corner)?! Shopping at place like Ann Taylor or The Limited was BIG time!

Gorgeous top - it's a good thing you kept it! And you have the best Kendra Scott collection!

That last pic is so cute!!

xo, sam

P.S. I had a huge laugh about the silver in the 90s!
