TGIF!!! I love Fridays...today especially since we don't have anything planned and I got to sleep in past 7am this morning thanks to my one year old who decided to sleep a little longer than usual. You know you have small children when you consider 7am sleeping in. This morning I've been browsing at a few things online and realizing that this shopping ban is for the birds. It's like dieting (so I hear...I don't diet..I would suck at that too)...the more you tell yourself not to do it the more you want to. I will admit I had another tiny slip up last night but it was for a good reason. I was ordering my son's lunch box from Gap (really cute choices this year) since it was 30% off and then realized that there was free shipping with a $50 purchase. I HATE paying for shipping...I avoid it at all cost. So, I started to look around the site to see what else they had. I found a cute light-weight jacket for my oldest for those chilly fall mornings and then still needed a bit more to reach the $50. So I headed over to the women's sale section. Yes, I did. And yes, I found a pair of skinny cropped jeans for $29.99. I actually think they may be the same pair my friend Elise owns...we own a lot of the same things. Do you and your friends have the same taste and end up with the same things sometimes?? Anyhow, they were more than 50% off and I don't actually own a pair of cropped skinny jeans...I always roll up my matchstick jeans to create the effect. I went back and forth about breaking my ban but in the end I decided in the name of saving money on shipping, I'd get them. I saved an additional $5.31 with another coupon I had too on top of that so that helped. I'm officially a ban-breaker. Like I said, I'm no good at this!!! I'm trying though...that's what counts.
Here's what I got:
Printed Lunchbox--chosen by my son...he loved the dinosaurs
Boy's Techwear Reflective Full-zip jacket
Ban-breaking Cropped Skinny Destructed Jeans
And lastly, yesterday I wore another dress...a maxi-dress to be exact. I picked this up last summer and wore it a TON. It was perfect because I had just had a baby and it allowed for me to be comfortable and kind of hide the lingering baby-weight yet still look semi-cute for being a new mom again. Now, a year later, it's just as comfortable and easy to wear.
