outfit post: patterned dress, black boots


Inspiration - H&M

I did some shopping before I left on vacation. I bought this dress from H&M and these boots with my last lingering credit from my cancelled ShoeMint subscription. (I joined ShoeMint for a year and while it was a fun idea to get a new pair of shoes each month - I don't need/like new shoes that often. So after a year - I ended my subscription.) I only own brown boots so I've been on the lookout for black ones for awhile now.

I also made a quick stop at Target right before I left and picked up the following items:
I rarely, rarely return anything I buy. It is just too much effort to find the time to get myself back to the same stores and wait in line to get a refund on things I just bought. Instead, I try my hardest to get it purchases right the first time and only bring home things that I really love and fit correctly. That said - I was in a rush when I went shopping at Target - and I bought two tops that both fit great but they've been sitting waiting around waiting to be worn since I got them. I keep choosing other things to wear instead of them. Not a good sign for brand new clothes. So, while I think they are really cute, they just don't seem to be 'me' or fit into my life and I'm going to have to bite the bullet and take them back.

  1. Been following your blog for a while, but this might be my first time commenting. Just wanted to say that I appreciate this insight into your shopping (both the purchases and the returns). And also wanted to say that I sympathize with the husband comments! My husband once told me that a new dress looked "homely"! While I love his honesty, it doesn't always help with my closet rotation. :)

    1. So true about the hubby's unintentional comments. He doesn't usually have much to say about my clothes but channeling Bill Cosby isn't really the look I'm aiming for! :)

  2. Good lord. I found you yesterday, I'm not even sure how, but boy am I happy I did. I'm going to LA, LV and Cabo for three weeks and I printed out your one suitcase beach vacation posts and the one about what to back in your onboard bag. I went home last night and picked out 16 pieces of clothing, mixed and matched them to make 40 outfits. I'm so astounded and grateful to have found you :) I used the app CLOTH. I took photos of the pieces and then tagged them with the number of the outfit so that when I'm away I can click on the tag for, say, outfit 14 and there the items are on my phone. Truly, you've changed my whole outlook.

  3. Omg. You're right about that Mossimo faux leather top! It's cool but I too could not pull it off. I just recently blogged it myself and just returned it. I really wanted to be cool enough but alas, no.

    1. Lol. It fits great but I just can't seem to figure it out for my own life. Funny to hear you had exact same experience! :)
