I try to stay away from the mall (and Target and thrift stores) because I cannot resist the urge to buy. Back in February when it was freaking cold, there was nothing else to do but shop, so I brought home all sorts of deals. Most of the clothing was for spring/summer, so it languished in my closet. As the weather warms up, I promised myself that I would only wear one new thing a week. I love the thrill of wearing something new, but hate paying my credit card bill, so I’m trying to prolong the pleasure and keep myself from buying anything else for a long while.
On Tuesday, I wore my new coral shirt, so I was supposed to wear only old things for the rest of the week. However, when I heard that Friday was supposed to hit near 70 degrees, I couldn’t resist pulling out this wrap dress that I bought two months ago. It was a real steal: $7.99 at Body Central! It’s okay that I broke the rules just this once, isn’t it?
