Last week was a bit quiet for me on the blog.  Not many new items in the closet, in fact I've been cleaning out A LOT.  I'm trying to get my outfits down to a capsule closet (more about that another time), so I've cleaned house and organized a bunch!  This past weekend I was in Boston and I clearly did not plan or pack well because pretty much everything I brought was white and I was not about to upstage the bride-to-be!  So, I knew exactly where to go within the area that I was currently.  I went right to Banana Republic.  This was a quick in and out trip for me as I knew what they had available and what sizes to pull.  Locally it's quick and easy since it's right down the road (and I usually I have scoped out what they have online/available in store prior to going).  Plus there are usually major sales all the time, but if it's not available, I tend to order online.

My next two online shopping sites is asos and Nordstrom (and rack here or there).  Asos is always having new items come out in various price ranges so it tends to be budget friendly.  Also, shipping and returns are free and it gets here quickly if you purchase over a certain amount.  So if there's something I'm on the fence with, I always up my shopping cart even if I end up returning most (or all) of it.  Nordstrom also has free shipping and returns, but I only keep an eye on a few brands within the site and try not to expand further!  Lastly I love Amazon.  Here or there I find brands that are cheaper and will get here quicker (thank you Prime) than other sites so it's definitely one of my top sites.  I know in the blog posts I link a lot of items that I try to find comparable in style or price at the sites listed, but that's because I frequent TJ Maxx since it's right near work or take a trip to Marshalls.  To me even if they have some online shopping availability, it's pretty much my "mall" shopping since I really never step foot in our local mall.  So even though I'm stepping foot in a store for these two, I still consider them a bit of online shopping since I frequent there at least once a week.
