Look Mom! It’s on sale!

Shirtdress: Anthropologie
Leggings: American Apparel
Sandals: J. Crew

Readers, I have such a hard time, when stating that I’ve bought things at Anthro, American Apparel, or J. Crew, not adding immediate parentheses afterwards making it VERY clear that I bought them ON SALE. SALE, I tell you! Not only does it feel so satisfying to purchase a great get on sale, but I have to add that with TWO of us in my household living on ONE non-profit salary (B is a med student, and yes, you now know that I work at a non-profit), I can’t very well afford buying things at full price. I just wanted you to KNOW this.

Now that I have that off my chest…

We have had such beautiful weather in Minneapolis this week that I almost started taking it for granted (ALMOST! Minnesotans NEVER take a beautiful day for granted!). It was still a nice enough day, but overcast and cooler, enough to make me long for one or two more heat waves before the summer ends. But this outfit was a nice way to still feel summery while giving the gams the extra warmth they needed. Lovely.

Lesson of the Day: Check to make sure my leggings are pulled down to the same length before taking photos. Check photos before ending photoshoot. (For pity’s sake!).

  1. I know what you mean about specifying that you bought things on sale! I always feel like I need to do that too. That shirtdress looks very cute and comfortable and versatile…definitely a worthy Anthro purchase.

    Regarding your comment on my blog: I am kind of obsessed with Myers-Briggs. It’s the only personality test that’s really interesting to me. My husband is an ENFP, so of course I get along with people of that type, hehe. I agree that the N-S factor is probably the most important!
