the ban is officially over

Hello my lovely ladies.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far!  Friday is my day off, so I am desperately looking forward to tomorrow.... my Friday!

In the weeks/months leading up to the wedding, I embarked on a self imposed shopping ban.  I didn't make a trip into Anthro (or any other store for that matter) for weeks and weeks, knowing if I went 'looking' it was all over.  I did make the exception for a couple necessities for the honeymoon.  I bought two new Anthro bathing suits (which are to come) and a full price maxi, insisted upon by the husband.  In his words "we're only having one honeymoon and you know you deserve it!" Yes, dear!  I'll follow that advice :)

After a couple very long months of staying out of the store, staying off the website, and avoiding all blog posts  revealing new sale items, I am SO happy this so-called 'shopping ban' is officially over.

I spent yesterday morning on the website.  Made some calls.  Found some highly coveted items.  Made a trip with hubs to Anthro last night.  Bought a full-priced outfit I couldn't resist.

And guess what?  I can't wait to mix up some new spring/summer clothes. 

Have you let yourself splurge at all this season?  Or have you all been good little savers?



  1. I gave up shopping for lent, so I have been saving a lot this season until now. I plan on going shopping on Friday and I can't wait. There are so many great pieces in the store right now. I can't wait to see what you bought.

  2. Can't wait to see your new purchases!!
