So, as I shared yesterday, I was in Europe for the last couple of weeks. I tried not to buy much leading up to the trip and I actually didn't buy any clothes in Europe. That might sound cray cray, but the truth is that I don't really love shopping, so I didn't want to spend my short time overseas trying on clothes. This is once again proof that I am the weirdest sort style-blogger - I don't even like shopping.
But I digress. Here is what I actually bought this month:
1. Black Jeggins (fromTJ Maxx - $11.99). I actually bought these specifically for Europe. They were perfect for the long plane ride and they were also comfortable for all the days we spent walking around. (Similar - on sale at Gap)
2. Old Navy Striped Sweater So it's not at all sweater weather, but that's my favorite time to buy sweaters because they are so darn cheap. This one was $3.49 (in store - it's more expensive online) so I just went for it. I immediately stuffed it under the bed in my out-of-season clothing bin, but it will be a fun surprise this fall when I get it back out.
3. Old Navy Tee ($7.99). I've mentioned it before, but I pretty much wear nice tees and skirts to work during the summer. I picked this one up because it's a different color than any other tees that I own, it's super-long (I have a freakishly long torso) and because it was so cheap.
4. Old Navy Sweater Dress. This purchase was completely unnecessary, but for $6.49 (in store), how could I say no? It fits really well and is a light sweater material, which is perfect for mild Oklahoma winters.
5. Born Flats I have been looking for a pair of brown flats for a while, but I'm trying to invest in nicer shoes these days (read about that here) so I was having a hard time finding anything comfy and affordable. Enter Dillards (Oh Dillards, I forget about your awesome sales). I found these Born flats for $35 and they are SO comfortable. I even wore them a few days walking around in Europe. They aren't on sale anymore, so I don't really know how I got them so cheap, but we'll just call it the luck of the Irish (you know, because I went to Ireland, har har).
