If you have been following me for awhile, you may remember this entry where I mentioned my June shopping hiatus. I was (almost) successful, I did purchase a few things from AE this week, BUT its because its going to be 90 and humid as all get out in Chicago next week, and after putting on 20 lbs since last summer, only 1 pair of my shorts still fits. So I did break and get a nifty little buy one get one for $10 deal, PLUS I had a 15% off coupon. Score!

I digress. Beyond shopping for those shorts that I NEEDED, I successfully did not shop this month.
The problem is, I am now in what I'd like to call "Shoppers withdrawal". The side effects are dreaming, literally, about shopping. Not just in passing, but vivid dreams where I am legitimately going to a store (a Free People, that happened to be in the back of a Target. Weird), and picking out very clear (and adorable) items in said dream, loading them in my cart, and, in the dream, thinking to myself I didn't care if I didn't have cash, I would put this GORGEOUS pink chiffon maxi skirt (that was $76, yes I even remember looking at the price tags AND sizes), a beautiful royal purple tunic ($168) and an adorable long sleeved floral babydoll dress (on sale for $39.99, and one size too big.) on my credit card.

Wow. Does this mean I have a problem?!


  1. I NEED to go shopping but I just don't want to. Not normal for me. But I'm pregnant and my stomach is definitely in that in between stage of not flat- but not a baby bump. So I need some looser, breezy shirts to hide it until I have a bump! But I just don't feel cute so I refuse to go shopping. I guess that's one way to save money :)

    1. Aww that is a tough one! Closing in on the maternity wear, but definitely not there yet. I've gained a lot of weight with moving across country last year and all that stress, so I had to do a closet redo myself - breezy and loose is all I rock these days! On the upside, once I get pregnant, I'll be set in that regard ;)
      You should go shopping lady! I know you don't FEEL cute, but once you have some adorable new breezy tops and pants you'll feel a million times better, and getting dressed will be much easier :)
