Confessions of a Shopaholic - Favorite Finds!

I thought I would share some of my favorite summer and fall finds from the past few months! These are some of my favorite things that I have purchased and that get use over and over!

This Vera Bradley bag is the best! It is perfect for short trips and even vacations. If I pack conservatively, this can hold about 5 days worth of clothes, accessories, and make up and hair tools. And as an extra plus, it even counts as a carry on at the airport! It is the Large Duffel in "Plum Crazy".

My next favorite find is super affordable! I love this head band from Forever 21. Bows seem to be all the craze, and I love it on this simple headband. I have found I can wear it with almost any color and dress it up or down. I also got one in black. The best part is that it is only $3.80!

Lately I have been shopping at boutiques. Both in stores and online. I find they have more original clothes than the ones from the mall that are a dime a dozen. I purchased this skirt from the Mint Julep Boutique online. I wear it all the time. My favorite thing about it is that it can be worn during the summer and transitioned into fall!

In keeping with the bow theme, this is a necklace that I often wear with the skirt above. I don't have a lot of gold jewelry, but it seems to be making a comeback. And it had bows, so of course I had to splurge! Found at Dottie Couture.
My last favorite find is this recipe - Pumpkin Dream Cake. My husband loved it. I made cupcake versions of the cake and send it with him to work. Not one cupcake made it home! I found it on Pinterest, but the original recipe is from The Novice Chef Blog. The recipe yields a 3 layer cake. I didn't have 3 round cake pans. So I made a two layer cake and used the left over to make cupcakes. I had plenty of icing with the original recipe. Eating this made me even more ready for fall!
