GREAT buys

Since I'm starting a new job this month (SUPER excited!), I've been working on weeding out my closet of things I never or rarely wear, and replacing them with easy pieces I can throw on with anything and look polished. Since I have a style that's very "me", it's been interesting to figure out how to make any type of outfit appear polished but remain "Mere Style". 

So I thought I would start a regular post on my favorite buys of the month - from clothing to beauty purchases. Everyone loves a good bargain, and I am certainly no exception, so most of these will revolve around great sale purchases. 

One of my favorite places (especially for sales) is Urban Outfitters for their end-of-the-season sale - which is usually an additional 50-70% off all sale items. Hello best deals ever (those boots were $15!). You sometimes have to hunt, but in those cluttered back-store clothes racks are some amazing pieces for a quarter of the price!

Ulta also had a 20% off your total purchase Labor Day sale, which happened to coincide with my need for a new mascara (mine's about 4 months old - I've been scraping the bottom for a good month now) and face powder. BareMinerals is one of my favorite brands because I have very sensitive skin, and their makeup seems to work well with most sensitive skin types (seriously, if I can use it on my skin, you can definitely use it on yours!)

So take a look at a few of the items I scooped up on super sale below (with the links too!), and check out me showing off my new duds here and here
