welcoming the spring season with a splash of floral...

my parents are visiting me this week in california for their spring break.
my mom and i were excited to do an outfit post together since this was one of our favorite things to do when i lived back in idaho.
we have so many memories of driving around searching for interesting picture spots, trying to catch "magic hour" and taking silly pictures.
she's a true blogger mom and i'm so glad to have her back for the week! 
i got these adorable leggings for five dollars on clearance at t.j.maxx! 
i was going to buy them even if they didn't fit- just to say i had a pair of floral bottoms! 
i think they are the perfect touch for the beginning of spring.
and i love them paired with this casual tee from forever21.
and as for the purse- it's my new favorite addition to my closet!
my parents gave me money for my birthday and i headed straight to nordstrom rack for a new purse for the spring/summer seasons.
there aren't many feelings that are greater than buying a pretty purse.
don't ya think?
what are you indulging in for the upcoming seasons?

top: forever21
bottoms: t.j.maxx
shoes: steve madden via nordstrom rack
purse: vince camuto via nordstrom rack 
bracelet: 36th street garden center (boise)

kick start your spring style with these pretty sale items!

so if you are like me, you walk straight to the sale racks after walking into a store.
and then you feel like since it's on sale, they're practically giving it to you, so how can you pass it up?
sometimes it can be dangerous.
do you look at your receipt and focus on the money that you saved instead of the money that you spent?
when i was younger and my mom would take me shopping, we would always tell my dad first how much we saved. 
however, it never mattered, he was always mad about how much we spent.
but inside i felt sorta victorious because of all the money i saved.
i really don't think there are many things that are better than a good sale.
and if you are on a tight budget like me, but want to spruce up your wardrobe for spring, then check out these items below!
