I am a reformed clothes-a-holic. By reformed, I mean my husband put me on a budget when we got married. Cause when we met I had no budget. And possibly a huge closet full of clothes. It is also possible many of them had tags on them. I may have had a problem, but let me be clear, “reformed” means I am on a budget. It does not mean that if I won the lottery tomorrow I wouldn’t buy a whole new wardrobe with a walk in closet to match.
So today, in the spirit of a new month, I hit the mall to spend my clothing budget. In the spirit of Vintage Dutch Girl who is always showing the world what clothing she would buy, I thought I would let you share in the booty I hauled home today. Please note, I will not be showing my actual booty. Sorry to disappoint.
First, my white pants. I heard they were a must have for the spring. I will confess as I was buying them I was thinking, “Where on earth can I stay at home mom wear white pants?” Tonight I wore them to church. And 2 people told me I looked skinny, so I just might wear these everywhere.
I wore them with a green polo shirt and these shoes.
I felt a little bit like you should call me Buffy as you handed me my ice tea at the country club.
While at Penny’s I also got an adorable white blouse and some awesome white wedge sandals, but I can’t find them on the website and am too lazy to go take a picture of them. Clearly white was a theme. Which I think is a brilliant choice when raising children who constantly are covered in jelly.
While at Payless, I discovered they were having their BOGO sale and I felt that it would just be plain wrong not to buy another pair. Not only wrong, but frugally irresponsible. So I bought these.
And I still had some budget left over. Where to spend that money?? Target might just be calling my name. Yes, I know. I have a problem.
