It's official. Winter is here. Snow is on the way. I did what any reasonable person would do when it's 30 degrees outside, and I layered up! It happened to be really sunny when I wore this outfit, so I opted for pastels. Truth be told, this outfit came to me in a vision as I started to fall asleep. Zzzz... Mint gingham and pastel purple... zzz...
I don't often share personal stories simply because nothing interesting happens in my life. Proof: On the day I wore this outfit, I had a coupon to take $10 off a $10 purchase at JCPenney that expired that day. I dragged my husband along to keep me company. He didn't want or need anything, so he followed me around as I tried to find something for $10-15. I hoped to find a replacement pair of moccasins. I bought these (in tan) from Target in 2009 and as of last year, there are a few holes in the soles. The only ones at JCP were $30. Pass. I really liked this sweater, but they only had XLs in stock. (It's okay, I found a better version at Kohl's and also had a $10 off coupon.) My husband claims we spent over an hour in the store. It felt like 15 minutes to me.
TL;DR: we left JCPenney with a new pillow and a tiny ramekin. For $1.04.
Do you feel compelled to buy something when you get 'take $10 off $10 purchase' mailers?
