I realize that I discuss clothing and style a lot on the blog, and yeah, it’s because I totally adore it and am constantly daydreaming about it. However, I will let you in on a little secret. Until this past weekend, I had not been shopping in months. And not just a few months… I mean like late last summer months. The reason, of course, is I had sort of made a conscious decision to go for it blog and business wise, and was saving every last waking penny that I could. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch. But I certainly wasn’t allowing myself to blow money on clothes. My grandmother got me a couple things at Christmas time, but those were the only new items I’d gotten in a very long while!
So when my mom was here last week, we decided to hit up the shops in search of some cute summer wear for her…and of course, I got lured in to the awesomeness that is J.Crew. I’m a spoiled brat, because my mom was kind enough to indulge me a little with most of the goods here — and it helped that The Crew was having a MEGA sale. Seriously…get thee to your local store. A lot of the stuff was discounted way more than it is online. I wonder why they do that?
Anyway, I came home with the above and it made me feel so much better about a few upcoming trips and photo-related situations I’m going to find myself in. Thank goodness for moms, am I right?
