Thrifty Thursday: It's Chic to Be Cheap {29}

I found a couple of good deals this week that I just couldn't resist sharing with you!


I braved Old Navy on Sunday afternoon with both girls. I'm not sure what I was thinking, except that the email they sent boasting 50% off clearance prices got my attention and made me a little crazy.


Natalie colored at the kids' table outside the dressing room without incident while Michaela Byrd attempted a stroller escape as I tried on khakis and a cardigan at lightning quick speed.


I ended up with new khakis, but my best buy was this fab necklace and matching earrings (50% of the clearance price!):




I had to run into Target this morning for a card, and I was shocked to see the clothing department taken over by Spring. 


Gorgeous stuff, but I'm not quite ready to buy capris and sundresses for little girls who are currently bundled up in snow coats and mittens. I know if I don't buy a few things now, the cutest stuff will be gone in a few weeks. 


I found a few mix and match things that were on sale for $3.50 each. I had a hard time choosing, and there were so many sweet little outfits I wanted to bring home with us. We have great luck with Target's Circo line.



The little Bermuda shorts (if they still fit by June/July!!) are too sweet. I am a sucker for cute details.

Sooooo cute! I love the gumball buttons! And that necklace & earrings will make you look fabulous my dear. :-)

I LOVE that necklace. It's sooo cute! Jewelry is something I don't have a lot of. I'm trying to get better about buying it though. Jewelry is a little intimidating to me.

I too am addicted to Circo at Target. I make most of my little one's clothes, but I buy LOTS of t-shirts, knit shorts and leggings for her there. Target ROCKS!

I used to love buying those super cute little girl clothes at Target. Sadly, Miss Mae grew! She's a size 7! I just do NOT like the clothes for the big girls. They are far too grown up looking for my first grader. So please, enjoy every sweet little cutie-patootie outfit you can find now! Think of folding laundry as your chance to just look at how sweet they are.

I drove by my Old Navy the other day and it's closed! I had no idea. There's still one in the mall, at least.
Those Target outfits are adorable! I really miss those now that my kids are too big for the toddler section, especially my daughter.

Oh my gosh, those little bubble gum shirts are too stinkin cute! And what a deal! I just may have to get one for my niece. Love the necklace, too. I saw quite a few spring things online at ON but haven't gotten to the store yet to try them all on, I'm hoping to snag some deals!

Andrea said...

I was in Tar-jay yesterday and found some cute deals...one of them a pair of black flats for me @ $6.49 :)
I think it's too early for all that spring stuff!

Erin said...

Love the gumball stuff! I'll have to go check it out and see if they have SC's size. Thanks for the tip!

I am completely addicted to Old Navy sales...you always know that, eventually, stuff is going to be slashed down next to nothing. The necklace and earrings were a great steal! I love the colors of the clothes from Target--so cheerful!

Nancy said...

Love that necklace and earring set you got! And the Target clothes for the kids are cute, too. I love a good deal...it is chic to be cheap!

Very cute purchases! I might have to buy Jordan that same outfit you bought the girls! Just to let everyone know, Children's Place is having an awesome sale on mostly winter clothes for under $3.99...mostly $2.99 through the weekend. I pent $34.51 and got many items for both kids!

Rhonda said...

The necklace is adorable!! I too saw the deals at Children's Place online... lots of cute things, and some of the little girls shirts are only $1.99, I don't know how long the sale is on, but it's worth checking into!! :)

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Great finds!!! Love the little gumballs ;)

Paula said...

I really like the necklace and earrings that you found. They will look great now with winter things and will also look great this summer with dresses and t-shirts. The bubblegum machine detail on the clothes for the girls is too cute. You were smart to get a few things before they are all gone.

I struck the jackpot for Dave in Roanoke on MLK Monday. I got him two pair of Columbia shorts for $10 each and two shirts (Reebok and Adidas) for $7.50 each. That's my recent bargain.

I totally heart that necklace. It is gorgeous!

Love your new bling (how last decade is that word?!) and athe bublegm outfits- too cute! Gotta put target on the errand list for tomorrow...
My Kirklands is going out of business (not sure if all of their stores are closing or just a few?) and it was getting pretty picked over, but everything was super cheap.

Smith Family said...

I LOVE that necklace! ADORABLE!!!!
And, I love the ciro brand from Target too. You can't go wrong! It usually gets me into trouble though....

PenelopeLovesLists said...

Ohhh, that necklace.

I had a Spring moment today on Gap.com and bought some new sandals. They were pewter, had to do it.

I love that necklace Amanda! I can't wait to do some shopping now this weekend. In fact, one of our thrift stores is 50% off tomorrow. I'm thinking I could do some damage, on the cheap! :)
