While I like to try and be somewhat fashionable, I am by no means a “shopper.” I love to have a new shirt, outfit, shoes, etc, but it stresses me out to go shopping and it’s just not all that fun to me. I come by it honest. As previous posts reveal, there is never a dull moment around my mom. But one place you will NOT catch her is at the mall.
In my pre-teen years I can remember traveling a couple of hours to a mall before school started each year to get some school clothes. I never understood why my mom looked so stressed in all of the stores until I grew up to feel the same way! Ha! Could it be that it costs money to buy things and as a grown up there are plenty of places that money needs to be spent besides at the mall?? :)
Growing up we used to get tons of magazines, and so I think it turned me into more of a magazine shopper. The last time I was home I found a magazine with some of the most adorable clothes for little girls. One problem: they were RIDICULOUSLY HIGH. Since nothing in the catalog fit into my budget, I am going to PRETEND (key word is PRETEND) that I just won a $1,000 gift card to chasing-fireflies in a recent drawing and I am picking out my favorite outfits for Jaiden from their new fall catalog! Here we go…
I love the teal and black one and that little girl sort of reminds me of Jaiden. J also wears her hair like that sometimes, and it is still one of my favorite ways for her to wear it :)
Isn’t this stuff adorable???
And I wish I could get one of these pink velour hooded outfits for myself! :)
