I know, I know. I totally disappeared right in the middle of our no shopping, wearing only clothing from our $300 wardrobe month. But for good reason.
Last Thursday, my mom and I packed our car and headed to a very strange place called Wichita to sell clothes, talk fashion, eat carni food and basically get out of town for a minute. We were at the Women’s Fair, an annual event. We had a booth for our boutique @jollly’s. We saw the Flint Hills and a fast-food ‘fresh seafood’ restaurant. In Kansas. (Sorry to report we didn’t try it out…) We met a lot of people. Some of them awesome. Some of them strange. We were in a fashion show-well we weren’t but our clothes were. My mom bought me Toms wedges for my birthday which are the CUTEST EVER. We sampled lots of roasted nuts. We made countless phone calls home to check on the husbands and dogs. I FaceTime’d Harvey twice. We watched one Lifetime movie. We made new friends. We traveled a lot of miles. We drank too many cups of coffee. And we had so much fun.
If you have a mom, go give her a hug or a high five. Or both. Weekends like this make me realize how lucky I am, as well as my four brothers, Harvey, my husband and my brothers wives/girlfriends that we all get to have such a great lady in our lives. So mom, thanks for taking adventures with me.
For most of the weekend, we were wearing 1 of 3 things: our jammies (which unknowingly we packed matching jammies- VS pink flannels that Joel says make me look like the easter bunny), our travel clothes which consisted of sweats and oversized t-shirts from past trips to the Carribean, or skinny jeans and tank tops that we are able to throw different things from @jolly’s on over throughout the day. Needless to say it is hard getting back into the swing of, you know, getting dressed.
Since we are in our last week of no shopping I decided I would spice monday up with the one and only ZEBRA sweater. I love this sweater, if you recall from the previous post (read more here) this guy is from the jr. department of Macy’s. It was practically free. And it brings me such joy.
What are you all wearing today to bring Joy to the world?
Glad to be back!
PS Total cost of this outfit: $45.98 plus only one week left until I get my wardrobe back! Read about the project here.
