and then there are Shopping Days…

Saving money makes me want to spend it. I suppose it makes sense. My little reward for skimping on clothes and driving around to find a meter with time already on it is that once in a while I can give myself free rein to shop, within reason. I bought a dress, a blazer, and a couple of belts. Then I stopped by my local Barnes & Noble and had coffee with my sister. I couldn’t resist picking up a copy of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s. 


I love the heart keyhole back on this white knit dress, and the blazer is fitted with ruching on the sleeves. I also indulged my inner girly girl with a couple of bow belts.

“What I found does the most good is just to get into a taxi and go to Tiffany’s. It calms me down right away, the quietness and the proud look of it; nothing very bad could happen to you there.”

  • I love shopping days, especially on my own! In fact I might have to indulge in one of these tomorrow, and a little café time! Last time I did this though I ended up getting the top of my ear pierced on a whim! Xx

    • Haha that’s great! Shopping days sound a bit more exciting for you than they are for me! Also, shopping days are best on your own. Much more relaxing.

  • I can’t be trusted in town. And thanks to online shopping im no longer safe left home alone either!

    I have a penny jar that gets counted and changed twice a year.. but that’s about all I manage with saving. Irk!

    That dress looks tres magnifique! I love the cut out in the back 😀

    • Thank you! I completely agree about online shopping. It’s even more tempting than shopping in person because I get to do it in my pajamas 🙂

  • The cut-out makes that dress!

    • Isn’t it adorable? Can’t wait until it warms up some so I can take that baby for a spin 🙂

  • Ah yes, I have to indulge in shopping every now and then so that I don’t go crazy. As you have no doubt been able to tell from my Instagram! haha. I like that the belts are patent, the heart detail makes the dress, but the blazer is my favorite. Eager to see how you style all of this!
