I just got back from visiting with family for a week. The highlight of the trip was getting to spend time with my baby niece-- she is so precious, and I can't wait to see her again! I also enjoyed being able to spend some time with my mom at a nearby outlet mall. I wasn't tempted by anything I had seen in the first few stores we went into, but it was fine since I got a pretzel earlier. As we were entering J. Crew Factory, my mom said to me that she really wanted to buy me something other than a baked good. Well, why didn't you say so sooner?
I walked through the store with an open mind and open eyes for anything that drew my attention. I promised myself I would only go home with something if I really loved it and if I could see myself wearing it in the next few days.
I almost went home with this dress, but I just couldn't see it getting much wear in the fall or winter. I also tried on this skirt, but it was too short. These shorts were too tight in the thighs, and this tee plunged too low. I was hoping to try on this peplum top, this baseball sweater, and this scallop dress, but none of these items were available in my size in the store.
While it may seem like I didn't have a lot of luck on this shopping adventure, I consider it a big win. As I mentioned on Friday, I went home with a great popover and pair of shorts (for less than $25!). I was hoping to wear the two together to Taco Tuesday, but the high temperature pushed me to wear this tank instead. After seeing these pictures, I wish I would have opted for the popover-- it would have done a much better job of hiding my food baby!
