I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really really really wanna zigazig ha.
Um. Sorry. I got carried away.
So. This past year has been all about our house. And Jordan. And let's not kid ourselves. This is going to be the case for pretty much every year in the foreseeable future.
The house has needed so much more than we anticipated. And Jordan, well, he grows out of clothes every 15 minutes. But honestly, it's fun buying stuff for him.
It's not a negative. It just is.
What it means, though, is that Nick and I have been extremely careful about our own expenses. This has significantly curtailed my clothes shopping. Every clothing purchase I've made this year has either been really cheap (Liberty for Target) or extremely practical. And there haven't been many.
What I've discovered, though, is that it's fine. I see things, and I want them, or WANTWANTWANT them, and I don't buy them...and my life goes on just fine without them.
Which doesn't mean that I don't go window shopping on a regular basis.
Those high platform over-the-knee boots above? WANT. They're Calvin Klein and they're at Zappos. This is one of those I know for a fact that I don't currently and probably never will need kind of things. Might not even wear. Where would I ever wear them? But want, yes I do.These purple boots, which are Boden and sized for kids but I have small feet so could totally fit them plus they're cheaper because they're for girls? Want, yes I do. Need? Not so much.
Delicious velvet coat in berry, also from Boden? Want. Don't need one bit. I have plenty of coats.
The only thing I need, and these are actually very practical and come from Lands End, are black pants. I'm reluctant to buy skinny pants - one, because I was here for the trend the last time around, and two because I just don't know if I can pull them off - but I want to...
