So… for our first wedding anniversary last week Nate gave me a paper gift! Money to buy new clothes!
Very eloquent, isn’t he. Love that guy!
You see… I’ve been complaining lately that it was time for some new things.
I’m a horrible shopper friends. Really, I am. I have all these lofty ideas of wearing cute outfits and then I go to actually buy something and wimp out. Partly because I don’t think I’m fashionable enough to pull it off and partly because I’m cheap… true story.
So here are three recent outfits… prior to my anniversary shopping spree. Three outfits that sort of display my um… cheap tendencies…
So, this black shirt has been around awhile… It was my favorite shirt almost two years ago when we took our engagement photos…. and we just celebrated one year of marriage. ha! Those khaki capris were a hand me down, oh, five or so years ago, from my mother in law. I cuffed the bottoms which made them a little cuter I think, but they’re just bulky on top… probably the reason she handed them down in the first place….
More hand me down capris. I also have a pair in dark brown…
But again, two pairs of bottoms that I didn’t purchase myself. Now, there’s nothing wrong with getting free clothes (free rocks!!), but if you didn’t choose them specifically for your body, they probably don’t fit all that well… know what I’m saying?
The white top was a birthday gift from my sister in law. Love it! Those jeans are one of three pair, total, that are decent enough to wear out of the house. For reals. And they’ve been around since I was an UNDERGRAD in college… i.e. three-four years ago. The necklace is from Love Stitched by the way.
So… are we seeing a trend here? I think it’s time to clean out the closet and spend a little anniversary present money!
So… tell me… what’s your go to clothing store? If they have a website, that would be awesome!
Also, what’s your go to summer clothing item??? Another link would rock! I need help…
Thanks in advance. The hubs thanks you too… you know, for wisely helping me spend his gift.
Linking to these fun parties by the way! Hope you’ll check them out!
