Tempted

all items remix'd
top: Old Navy
skirt: Anthro
shoes: Madden Girl

Why I decided to limit my shopping on the eve of a big shopping holiday is beyond me. Lots of cool things are on sale at Anthro, Loft, etc and I am really tempted to stop by and look and...buy. But I really don't need anything. I keep reminding myself that I still have things in my closet that I haven't yet worn, so no need to buy more!

Why holidays are associated with shopping is beyond me as well. Well, aside from the obvious sales that retailers use for people to get in the stores. I have taken a deep breath, peeked into my overflowing closet and decided that, no, I really don't need that cute skirt even if it's only $19.99 plus 40% off. Baby steps, no?

This outfit is so cute, and looks really unique. Lots of times I find myself pulling together a cute outfit, but then thinking--oh, a pencil skirt and oxford? Wore that yesterday. This skirt is so fun and different that you can't confuse it for anything else!

Baby steps AND look at the adorable skirt that you're wearing now!!! I love it. You look so great!

Yes I'm totally with you. Anytime I get the urge to shop. I go and literally stare at all the pieces I've yet to wear.

Love the skirt. I wish I had an anthro nearby to dig through their sales racks.

This is a rough time of year to not shop, I think. I've been happily on my little shopping ban all summer, and all of a sudden all these fall sales are making it a bit tough. But I'll make it through! And you will too!

LOOOVE this outfit. If there are more gems like this skirt in your closet, I think you're fine without new stuff. :)

Oh god, I wasn't even thinking about sales this weekend... At least I've got my new budget for the month if I can't control myself...

Love your skirt, so cute!!!

I know what you mean - I have to remind myself constantly that I really don't NEED that skirt, or that top, or that pair of shoes. Shopping can be so addicting!
Also, I own that skirt and I love it! :)
