Since I started at the new store over two months ago, I have hardly bought anything. I think my new co-workers believe I am crazy or have amazing self control. Quite the opposite in fact. I have no self control. What I have is a husband with amazing SJ&YP spending control. For the past couple of months, I have been put on a spending “hiatus.” It sucks. I am dying. No, Hubby did not physically take my credit card(s) from me. Yes, Hubby is right, we need to pay off a few bills. However, I need some new closet inspiration. I have been finding my current closet boring. It is my job to be a brand ambassador, so I need to shop!
You know what doesn’t help this overwhelming urge to shop? Trying on clothes constantly to see how they fit. Guess what? When they fit good, it is hard not to whip out the Visa. Again, it sucks. I keep hoping that if I am good, I will be rewarded for my good behavior. Now, you may be asking yourself, “Is it really that bad?” My answer to you is, YES! Do you know what it is like to be surrounded by adorable, trendy clothing that other people get to buy but you can’t? It feels wrong. I want to wear the spring styles too….
Lately, I have taken to compiling a list of items entitled “Get in My Closet.” This helps me to be prepared for the moment Hubby says “Honey, go buy yourself something pretty. You deserve it.” Actually, it will sound more like, “Honey, while I don’t agree that you used the check card for evil, at least you kept it under $XXXXXX (insert your own dollar amount).” I thought sharing some of the things I love might inspire Hubby (since he claims to read my blog). So here are a few of the outfits I would like to get in my closet. Hopefully, my Hubby will let me utilize my discount in the near future.
OK, I love this dress, even if it is a little like walking with a rubber band around your legs. It made me feel skinny and kind of sexy. And the denim jacket was so soft and stretchy. YUM! I can totally imagine wearing this out for drinks or date night.
Denim Jacket: AG
Shoes: Dolce Vita
Nothing I like better than a pair of slouchy pants and a T-shirt. This outfit took it a step further and made me feel more pulled together for running around, very mom-friendly! Plus, I got to multi-purpose the denim jacket. See Hubby? I do know how to save money…kind of….
T-shirt: Allen Allen
Necklace: Chateau Belle
Earrings: Indio Kate
Naturally, I needed to have an outfit which includes my signature look, skinny jeans. Since I have been feeling spring-y, I had to pull out some bright colors for this outfit. I am loving the neon green in the top and the flowy bottom helps hide the abdominal damage caused by two C-sections and years of laziness.
Scarf: Thirty Nine 42
Boots: Mia Girl
I have been loving the new mesh look I have been seeing all over for spring, especially paired with a striped tank showing underneath. If you peek at the mirror behind me, you will see the stripes really show through the back of the tank. I tried to take a picture from behind to show it but that turned out to be bad idea. Trust me.
Shirt; Heather B
Dang. I did not want to take this sweater off the first time I tried it on. It was even harder the second time. It was sheer, soft, and comfortable. Absolute LOVE! I just want to but it and put a sequined tank underneath for some extra sparkle…but I would still rock the cowboy boots.
