I checked off one item from my wishlist with the purchase of the blue dress. I'm so excited about it. Even though I don't need more accessories, I do enjoy a new piece or two every now and then.
There are currently a few pairs of jeans in the mail, including this pair and this pair. I tried them on in store last fall and loved them, but ended up returning them because the regulars were too long, and the shorts were too short, and I was too lazy and cheap to have them hemmed. I'm rethinking that decision now. But I'm also wondering if I should wait until fall rolls around when there will be a great selection of jeans-- especially because it seems that bootcut jeans are making their way back into the limelight!
There were some misses this month, too. The hunt for the perfect gray tee continues. This one was too tight (even when I sized up). I adore(d) this tee, but the "hand wash only" turned me off. I guess I should read the fine print before putting my order in and getting my hopes up. I also loved the way this top looked on me, but didn't see myself wearing it that much in the future.
I'm really considering spending some more of my birthday money on a pair of Birkenstocks. During my sophomore year of undergrad, I spent birthday money on a pair of Birkenstock clogs. I wore them nearly every day, until spring rolled around and I swapped them for my Adidas slides. The new found interest in Birks comes because of recent foot/arch issues... probably from wearing flat Target sandals with no arch support all summer long. I just can't decide between these or these. I have a soft spot for the latter pair because my Mom has been wearing them as house shoes since I can remember, but the former pair seems like it would actually go with my typical summer outfits. Thoughts?
