For my birthday, my mother-in-law took me shopping. (Have I mentioned how awesome it is to get along with one's in-laws?!) It was a lot of fun! I'm really not a big shopper (partly because I'm so frugal no doubt), so it was exciting to actually get some clothes for spring! This is really the first year I've felt very 'fashionable' at all, and I'm trying to completely embrace it - in my own way, of course.
First up, shoes. I needed some more casual flats (I can't wear open-toed shoes to work) that would look good with skirts or shorts. I was looking for black, but I found these:
Next up, spring basics and Banana Republic:
And finally a couple outfits to go from New York & Company:
It must have been frustrating to take me shopping when I was younger. I wouldn't wear anything too girly, too low-cut (meaning below the collarbone :P), anything that even looked like it might be uncomfortable...my poor mother. Now I'm much more open to new styles, and trying things that I would never have thought would look good. I'm learning! Half the things I got Saturday are items I tried on a whim, never guessing they'd actually work!
My challenge: Next time you go shopping, try on at least 3 things you'd never have dared to before. Let me know how it works out!
