Wow, Victoria's Secret has cute clothes? Huh?

I'm gonna be honest. I usually don't even make it past the recycling bin from the mailbox with the Victoria's Secret catalog. Looking at 40 pages of lingerie followed by an immediate sense that I should go to the gym? Yeah, I'll pass. For some reason, I think because the mag was upside-down and the girl on the back cover looked cool, I thumbed through the most recent edition to be delivered. Frankly, I was shocked at how many cute things there were. And they are affordable!! Here are a few of the the ones I loved and some ideas I have about them.

On left: floral dress, $39.50;
On right: floral corset dress, $59.50, slouchy cardigan, $39.50

I really do love both of these little frocks. I even like how the one on the right is styled with the slouchy cardigan. Add a pair of sweater tights and booties or boots to either, and you could wear it now. And of course, in a couple of months you could pair it with some barely there sandals like those two gals. How cute are those floral prints?! I seriously can't believe it's Victoria's Secret.

tie-dye pencil pant, $49.50

These are a really great knock-off of a pair of J Brand jeans that I LOVE! And why pay almost $200 for something this trendy? Don't do it! And also, don't leave the house wearing a bandeau bra under an open jacket.

boyfriend shirt, $48

I'm sure I've told you about my obsession with my Steven Alan plaid boyfriend shirt. Oh, I haven't? Well, I seriously wear it once a week at least. It's just the easiest thing in my closet to put on. With denim shorts, baggy jeans, with leggings under a blazer...if you don't have a plaid shirt, you gotta get one. If you don't wear it at least once I week, I'll take it off your hands because I could seriously use another one.

hoodie cardi, $39.50

I may already own fourteen cardigans, but I don't have one with a hood! I hafta have it? Right?

cargo jacket, $69.50; racerback scoopneck tank, $29.50

This whole outfit is so effortlessly chic. Isn't that what we all aspire to look like? Besides perhaps being about 5'10" and having clothing fit like this girl, but whatever.
