MALL HAUL! Featuring: American Eagle, Forever 21, MAC, and more!

Hey guys! So even though I started college on thursday, I went to the mall today to pick up a few (haha, a "few!" A "few" turned out to be many, many things...) things that I guess could be back to school essentials, but just things I needed and wanted and liked. Plus, it is labor day weekend, and the sales were pretty fantastic! Here's my haul, enjoy!

American Eagle
Okay, if you didn't go to American Eagle this labor day weekend yet, don't walk--run--ASAP! Everything is 40% off!! Yes, even the new stuff, the old stuff, everything in store is 40% off! I believe that's only until Sunday, so make sure you catch this awesome deal! It's perfect to pick up things for back to school. The prices I post were after the 40% discount.

Pretty Floral Scarf ($11.70) and Infinity Scarf ($14.70)
Can I just say how much I love these scarves?! The floral one is so pretty and would look gorgeous with a navy or pink cardigan, and infinity scarves are my absolute favorite things! They keep me so warm, and I just couldn't resist getting this one, especially at 40% off.

I've been dying to get an oversized sweatshirt like this without the hood, and I'm so glad I found this one! It's sooo warm and cozy inside, and I love that I can wear it off the shoulder. I also really like the colors on this, it was a great buy! This cost $23.70.

Oversized Cardigan $26.70
Can I just say how much I love this cardigan? It is so spot-on for trends this year (huge oversized sweaters are very in!) and I love how the sleeves bunch up when you wear them. I can't wait for it to get a little bit breezy so that I can wear this.

Forever 21
Just a warning, incase you want to wait in very, very, very, very long lines, skip this store during your labor day weekend mall crawl. They didn't really have sales (not that they need them) and everything will be there next week. Nonetheless, I really like the things I picked up!

Okay, I'm not the biggest fan of yellow (it doesn't look so great on me with my fair skin and blonde hair) but how CUTE is this shirt?! I can't resist F21's shirts like this, and since my boyfriend is, well, a nerd, I just had to buy this. I love the robot! And, this is seriously the MOST COMFORTABLE SHIRT EVER. I did not expect that at all (especially at F21) but it's seriously so comfy that I can't wait to wear it! $15.80

I saw this from across the room and knew I had to have it. I'm such a sucker for oversized long sleeve shirts like this. I love the heart on the front (kind of reminds me of the Wildfox heart shirts Taylor Swift wore!) and I love the detail on the back. $17.80

Just because I'm always losing nail files. Aren't they cute, though? I'm still trying to figure out how a glitter nail file is supposed to work. $1.80

MAC Cosmetics
Alright, so I was in serious need of a new studio fix powder (mine is pretty much gone, just some left around the edges), so I finally bought a new one! I'm surprisingly the same shade. I almost bought the careblend but the lady at the mac counter said it wouldn't cover much (I guess names are deceiving) so I stuck with my good ole studio fix. I also have been hearing raves about "well dressed" blush for years! I never really understood the hype because, well, it looks kind of pale and not too pretty in the pan, but I bought it anyway after MeghanRosette's reccomendation (who said that she thought it was ugly until she tried it on). I swatched it and it looked pretty, so I bought it, and it is soooo gorgeous! I love this, I can't wait to wear it, it's seriously the perfect little flush of color and I wish I picked this up earlier!
MAC "Well Dressed" Blush is $19.50 MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in N5 is $26.50

This was actually the point in the mall trip (besides hitting up deals at AE) because I was in desperate need of new sneakers. I have a pair of black vans, and I didn't want to get another pair, but, well, I love my black vans and wear them religously, so, naturally, I bought another pair of vans. This time, pink!

I promise they're not that scary of a shade of pink in person! They had this promotion going on that if you spent $50 you would get $20 vans cash, so I bought the socks to balance that out. I'm not sure if I'll like the low cut socks, but it's worth a shot.
Shoes: $42 Socks were a buy one get one half off deal, so I paid around $11 for both.

Abercrombie and Fitch
I definitely didn't need another pair of jeans, but when I see jeggings I kind of flock to them. Especially when they're not too short for my legs. Especially. And these were 50% off! Whee!

Jeggings: $34

American Apparel
I usually don't like this store, because I think it's overpriced for very simplistic things, but when I saw this bow I kind of ran in. Literally. I've been looking for a big bow like this, so much that I was willing to pay the $14 price tag. I saw a red bow from that I liked, and that one was $15, and that's before shipping and handling, so I figured $14 wasn't too terrible. Also, I know that it won't break easily, like perhaps something from F21 would've.

I know the photo of me wearing the bow is not the best picture that could've been taken, but, well, you get the point!

Hope you enjoyed my haul!
