I'm taking a brief hiatus from posting outfits on account of not wearing real outfits. I somehow wound up with an eye infection and have been unmotivated from doing anything in public until today. On the bright side, I've had ample time to get some grading done and mull over some recent purchases.
I love the black and white print of this scarf. I can definitely see myself pairing it with neutral colored bottoms and a colorful top, or any solid colored dress, or, dare I say, with thick stripes? But do I really need another scarf? (Please tell me the answer is always 'yes'.)
I thought I really wanted this cardigan to work. If it hadn't been so tight on my arms, I would still be thinking about it. I already returned it and am glad I did -- it's a piece I would probably regret down the road.
I tried these in black as a more dressed up alternative to the joggers I already have (here). Mine are too casual to dress up, and I would love a more dressy pair. However, they were just too tight around the ankles. (At least the reviews were helpful; size up if you're going to try them.)
But here's the thing. Of all the things I've bought this month, nothing compares to what I found this morning at TJ Maxx:
While it's not the handbag I foolishly passed up last week, it's what I had in mind when I bought this little one from Target. If I had to choose between all the other stuff or this bag, I'd choose this bag, with only a brief pause. I see myself trying to buy the chunky cardigan as well as the black and white scarf down the road... and maybe the red/coral handbag, too... so shouldn't I just keep them all now since I got them at discounted rates?
What do you think? (You can see additional images of the above handbag here.) Should I return everything and keep the bag? Or would I be justified to keep the bag, the scarf, and the cardigan (and the other bag, too)?
