Anyway, enough of my washing machine woes. I promised I'd be featuring a few more of my "basic staples" from Abercrombie (see my first piece here and $10 striped peplum cami here and this grey duster is one of those pieces.
Abercrombie | Tee: Express | Jeans: Express | Shoes: Amazon (Similar in "Sesame") | Necklace: Kendra Scott | Bag: Amazon
This duster is just perfect. It ran true to size for me and is a perfect weight for moderate Spring days. At first I thought it looked a little heavy for Spring but the open stitching allows for quite a lot of ventilation (I guess that's the right word here). It ran true to size for me and is a great price at $35, but there's also a promo code on the website over the weekend for an additional discount plus free shipping on orders of $50 or more, so it might be worth getting both this and the oatmeal color ...which I also snagged and you'll see in an outfit on Monday.
All of the other pieces in this outfit are "old news" around here, but everything I'm wearing ran true to size for me with no surprises or particular issues to note.
Shop the Look:
I have a random assortment of things to share today for Friday Favorites, starting with a couple of Trader Joe's picks. I've shared some of my Trader Joe's favorites in the past (easy appetizers, sweets, other ) but I've had some recent success with new things I've tried lately so I wanted to share those today.
Trader Joe's Soft & Juicy Mandarin:
I've been eating Trader Joe's Soft & Juicy Mango for quite awhile but once I went in store to stock up and they were sold out. So I opted for these Mandarins instead since it seemed like the best alternate option available in store. I don't even like regular mandarins that much, but these are good! Now I have to keep both these and the mangoes in stock at home.
I've had a couple of songs on repeat this week. First is Imagine Dragons latest, "Believer." I think I heard on the radio that it's going to be in a movie coming out so I'll probably get sick of it by the time summer rolls around. But for now, I'm into it.
Second, this remake of Britney's "...Baby One More Time" by Tove Styrke. The beat is more dark than the original, but equally catchy, with some funky techno added into the mix (after the second chorus and bridge). I can't stop listening to it.
This week on Dancing with the Stars, Derek and Julianne Hough performed a feature duet (watch it here, inspired by their parents divorce) that was very powerful and just physically amazing. But their mom was in the audience watching and I couldn't help wondering if that wasn't extremely awkward for her?
As for the competitors, I loved Heather and Alan's tango to "Toxic" (watch it here) and Normani and Val's Foxtrot to "Big Spender" (here).

Well hooray! It only took 30 minutes to install the part and my washing machine is now fully functional! I've never been this excited to do laundry in my life!
This weekend I won't be doing an Outfit Recap/Outfit Singles post. Not just because I need to get caught up on laundry, but I am planning to go out of town for Spring Break next week (although that may change last minute depending on the weather...blah) so I'll use the "extra" outfits that usually go in my weekend posts to fill my normal M/W/F schedule next week. Have a great weekend!
