[OOTD] If the Devil Brought You Roses...

Whew. It's Friday. Seemed to take forever to get here, didn't it?? I sure thought so!!

I have something very important to say. Ok, maybe not that important, but I'm going to say it anyway. I haven't shopped in 2 weeks. I bought myself a little necklace at Tybee on my birthday, and I ordered those few items I mentioned with my birthday cash, but I haven't been in a store to shop in 2 weeks. And if I'm being honest, I'm pretty sure that's the only reason why I haven't shopped.

Part of me is super surprised I haven't, because the thought has crossed my mind a few times. But the other part of me has found that it's not too hard as long as I convince myself not to stop anywhere that could tempt me. (I haven't been in a Target for over 2 weeks. This is some kind of milestone for me!!!) We'll see how this goes for the next 2 weeks - I'm thinking about allowing myself one afternoon of popping into a few UK-exclusive shops when I'm over there - like TopShop - but I'm not walking into a single store we have over here (I'm looking at you, H&M!!!).

How about we end the week with an outfit?

Top: H&M, old | Pants: JCPenney, $17 | Shoes: Burlington Coat Factory, old | Scarf, Neclace: London street market, $5, $20 | Bracelets: F21, Macy's; $3, gifted | Watch: Target, $13 | Grand Total: $58+

After seeing these pictures, I'm not sure I like these shoes. They look kind of goofy.

  3. love that top, jamie! such a great color!!

  4. Good for you, Jamie on the shopping ban! I also find that if I don't set foot in the stores (and don't go on to the store's websites), I don't feel the temptation to shop. I've done VERY little shopping over the last few months and it's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be as long as I reward myself with something little every once in a while.

    Have a great weekend!
