Sooo Ready for Some Shopping!

I've done really well this month with the shopping ban. Haven't bought a single clothing item, shoes, make-up, other face products, etc. This is quite an accomplishment for me. While it's been great on the bank account and amounts to less clutter in my closet and bathroom, I am so ready for a shopping trip!

Last night we went out for a friend's birthday. It was a casual thing at a piano bar, and I couldn't figure out what to wear. My other friend decided to wear jeans so I didn't want to be the only one wearing a dress...but I don't really have a nice pair of 'going out' jeans. And most of my clothes are work appropriate and not really for going know what I mean? I mean, I do have some things that would work but they don't all go together - they are not outfits, just pieces. I threw something together in the end that was, you guessed it, all black. I couldn't help it. The black skinny jeans fit me best, and the top I chose just seemed right. (Plus, it was a new item that I finally wore!)

I did learn some valuable lessons as I was trying on clothes last night:

  1. I need to get back to doing squats and lunges and do more cardio! Not happy with what the lack of lifting and cardio has done to my thighs!
  2. When shopping, I need to think more about a whole outfit rather than just buying a single item just because I like it. If it won't go with anything in my closet, what good is a random skirt going to do? (Unless I buy a whole new outfit, which is always fun!)
  3. I need more casual jewelry - most of the stuff I have is too fancy, and I don't have many bold or colorful accessories that can be worn daily. 
  4. Don't get drunk at a piano bar and dance on top of the piano because your friend might lift up your dress and show your booty to, that was NOT me...just some random girl there for a bachelorette party. It was quite a show. 


  1. what a pretty lace top!! and good for you for not spending any money this month. and your last statement about the piano bar is too funny! oh how glad i am not to be that girl. ;)
