On the Trail



I seriously had the best day of finding deals this week. I found two giant rugs for my room for $7 total at Urban Outfitters, I scored these H&M Swedish Hasbeens on eBay, I found these high-waisted See By Chloe jeans at Crossroads for only $13 (I did a happy dance when I found them), and I also found a pair of super current Miu Miu sandals for $10. $10!! I couldn't believe it when I saw the price.

It's no secret that I love deals. I've always been thrifty, and I've always hunted for a bargain. I suppose it's the result of learning from my mother when I was young that it doesn't take a lot of money to find unique things. We never had much money growing up, but we always made things work. I admire how much my mother could accomplish with a shoe-string budget, so I try to do the same now. It's tough sometimes, but when I have a day like I just did, when I score a bunch of amazing finds, I realize how worth it it is!

And I just wanted to point out the nifty button I made this week that I'm going to start attaching to the bottom of posts - so you can more easily follow me on Bloglovin'. So glad to see how much the blog is growing, I love you all!

    1. Hey there! I had to search eBay for a while, unfortunately a lot of them are price-gouged online, but I did find a pair for $70. Still over the retail price, but with designer collaborations you kind of have to expect that. People go there the day the collection debuts, buy it all, and then make a profit online. Just search relentlessly, and you'll find a deal!!

  9. Thanks for e-bay tips Courtney! As you say, I must keep searching. Today I've discovered a shop called Ugglebo Clogs that has products similar to Swedish Hasbeens. Maybe i can find something on sale...
    Have a great weekend!

  10. Wow girl! That is a bunch of great deals you scored!

    I'm really loving high waisted blue jeans now too. They are so comfy and a little more dressy than a regular pair of blues.
