A nautical, yet office appropriate outfit for your viewing pleasure! The nonsense part would have to be my shopping habits as of late. It’s gotten a little out of control. I tend to shop to pass the time (lunch breaks, after work, Saturday mornings) or when I ‘think’ I should have an item my fellow blogger has. Yeah, both are really stupid reasons, the ladder being absolutely ridiculous. I need to get my priorities straight, that’s for sure. Through FabAve, I’ve wanted to convey the message that you don’t have to have brand names to be fabulous. And I hope that message still rings true. But with the amount of shopping I’ve done in the last two months, I’m a little disgusted with myself. And to make matters worse, I don’t even have the money I’m spending.
I’ve declared strict shopping diets before on the blog (and in life) but this time I have to actually cut myself off. Cold turkey. If I want to save money to landscape the backyard, finish decorating the house or take fun vacations with the fella, I need to make this sacrifice. I need to quit justifying purchase for the good of the blog and quit fooling myself. So no more shopping for me, at least for now. I’ll reconsider things and review my bank account closer to my birthday, which is a little over a month away. So I’ll live vicariously through my blogger friends and sift through my closet as if it were my favorite store;)

*I hope I didn’t offend anyone with this post. If you do have the money to shop and buy expensive brands, enjoy it. I’m just broke and cannot.
