Introducing: Shopping Saturday

For as long as I can remember, Saturdays were for shopping

This Ohio girl didn’t grow up shopping at Nordstrom.  I never even heard of Nordstrom until I was in college.  I grew up shopping at places like JCPenney, Walmart, T.J.Maxx, etc.  I’m still that same girl from Ohio.  Don’t get me wrong…  I love my designer handbags.  But, I also love shopping at the same places I always have.

To be fair, my handbag obsession started in college.  I remember saving for my first Coach bag while working three jobs and going to school full time.  After I landed my first adult job, I saved up to buy my first Michael Kors bag, which you can see in this blog post from 2014.

I tend to be frugal when it comes to shopping for clothes.  I’ll invest in pieces that I know I will use a ton and keep for a long time…  Pieces that aren’t trendy and won’t go out of style quickly.

I spend a lot of time shopping online so I thought why not start a fun new series where I share the pieces I find.  Here’s the best part, I will only share pieces that are reasonably priced!  They will mostly be under $50.  With Christmas only EIGHT weeks away, this is a great time to start purchasing gifts slowly so you don’t break the bank all at once!


my new favorite mug


Introducing: Shopping Saturday angela lanter hello gorgeous

Every Christmas monogram mugs are one of my favorite gifts to give.  This year’s mug is so pretty with the gold detail and floral print.  It’s only $14 and makes a great gift for girlfriends, co-workers, teachers, etc.


sweaters under $50


Sweater weather is here.  I just ordered this sweater and it’s just as cute in person as it is online.  For under $20, there are four colors and I’m obsessing over the black sweater with the feather detail.  I’m wearing a size: Small.

I just ordered this leopard cardigan in black in Small.  It’s only $30 and comes in about a million different colors.  It’s scheduled to be delivered today, so I’ll post a photo once I try it on.


This one shoulder sweater is so stinking cute.  Comes in two colors and only $24.99.

Another leopard cardigan I just snagged from Amazon!  I bought this one in pink and can’t wait for it to get here today.  Only $29!


I’m a cardigan lover.  This one is on sale today for $24 with coupon code: SWEET.


Don’t forget about my major find… My Barefoot Dreams dupe!  This super soft, super plush cardigan is SO good.  This would make THE BEST Christmas gift.  If you have Target Circle on your account (so easy to sign up, just google it) you get an additional 5% off, which makes it $33.



home deals


When it comes to home decor, I invest in the pieces I use daily.  The quality and softness of bedding and towels is super important to me.  I tend to spend more on those types of items and save on things like rugs, which are impossible to keep in excellent condition with a toddler and dog in the house.


Christmas decor is 20% off this weekend at Target.


Macy’s is having a 48 hour sale.  My favorite brand of bath towels are marked down 60%!


I need a new turkey roaster for Thanksgiving and this one is 50% off, making it only $15!


Wayfair’s Doorbuster sale is currently happening…  So many awesome deals!  Check out this area rug starting at just $28.

My scalloped chargers are marked down to $3.96, burlap ruffled placemats are $4.76 and my medium pumpkins are $9.

Use code: 10MORE for $10 off every $50 you spend and code: FREESHIP49 for FREE shipping for orders over $49.

See all the details from my Thanksgiving tablescape in this blog post.

    I LOVE coffee mugs and that monogrammed mug is Amazing! Also leopard print is really catching my eye this season too for some reason so I’m loving the leopard sweater too! Thanks for doing this blog. I am always afraid to buy online and usually end up sticking to Amazon. You took the guess work right out of it 🙂
