I know. Everyone's so glad I began blogging again so I could write these kinds of inspiring posts. : /
I took a leap in December and rounded up every fashion blog to which I was subscribed--all of which engaged in significant wailing and written tantruming after the presidential election--and clicked "unfollow." Quite liberating.
In the wake of that decision, I no longer read about ladies who spend $180 on jeans, $200 on purses and $300 on shoes without batting a mascara-ed eye. Bully for them, but that kind of spending isn't me now, nor do I think it ever will be. It's not a judgement on their spending. It's a reflection of the reality of mine.
What is my reality? Walmart. I love the Savings Catcher feature on their app and have gotten $20-something back to date. I shop there for groceries, household goods and occasionally... clothes. Gasp. Here's what I'm loving right now from the big blue box store:
1 / french terry dress
I bought this one (for $14.88) and have worn it a million times already. Love the length and neckline. Thinking about getting the blue.
2 / colored chambray popover shirt
Current momiform: button down shirt, sweater, jeans. Daily. I want this one in peach stripe.
3 / woven cami
Love this $5 cami. The cut is, shall we say, forgiving, especially for when I was 8 weeks post-partum. This black cami + lightweight cardigan + long necklace was my casual rehearsal dinner outfit for a wedding last October.
4 / pioneer woman vintage bloom kitchen towels 2-pack
Drool. I'll take one of everything she made for this line. All so cute.
5 / pioneer woman country garden rug
6 / Novogratz vintage tufted sofa sleeper
M is for Mama is eyeing the pink one.
7 / boys color block rainboot
Amby is my boot lover and woe to the mommy who fails to have his boots ready on a rainy day. I bought him these for $12 but now I see they're down to $9.98!
