You guys....this no shopping thing is hard this time around! I really do not NEED anything, but man, sales are tempting me and I keep seeing things in my closet and going "how else can I wear that item? It needs something else." Take for example, this pink gingham shirt. I wore it once with the sweater it was gifted to me with, but have been at a loss since then. Of course, the more I looked around, I realized I had many options, including this blazer I haven't actually worn in quite some time. So, in the end, I know it's best for me to keep shopping my closet. I'm really excited about how this outfit turned out.
I feel a bit like Ellen DeGeneres in this outfit, but you know what, I love Ellen, so I don't mind. I'm not kidding though, this gingham shirt is from JCPenney and she's been their spokesperson and I swear I've seen her wearing it on her show!
Blazer - F21
Shirt - JCPenney
Pants - Sonoma, thrifted
Bag - Coach Factory Outlet
Necklace - S&D
Shoes - Madden Girl, thrifted
At least it's one week down on the shopping ban. I know I'll get by, and if I remind myself that I sort of did this for Lent, it makes sense, it should be a sacrifice - but as I said last week, I decided to do it for more than just Lent, I just really needed to do it. And once I'm off the ban I just need to start taking more of a budgeted approach to my shopping, which you'd probably assume with so much thrift shopping would be pretty easy, but it does add up after awhile. Just need to learn a good balance.
