The One with a Wardrobe Pick-Me-Up

I am soooooooo in need of a wardrobe pick-me-up (stop your snickering Chris and Dald, and all the other men out there who maybe read this blog). Do you ever just get so sick of staring at the same things over and over and over and you feel like you'll never look cute again? Kid you not, I have clothes in my closet that I've had since 7th grade. I'm sentimental. So I went to Target this afternoon and got a few new things and now I feel much better. Shopping is a nasty habit. But as long as I'm the bread-winner working my tail off day-in-and-day-out, I feel I deserve a few things to boost my confidence now and again.
Exhibit A: A cute yellow handbag. I've been using the same purse for almost two years now, time to switch things up. $15. Steal.
Exhibit B: Lately I've been putting on my clothes and saying to myself, "If only I had a pair of purple shoes to go along with these..." Now I do! $13. Not too shabby.
Exhibit C: "So my pants don't fit so good." That's an inside Ben/AC joke :) But anyways, I'm bored with my pants, they're all old and decrepit. Saw these, tried them on, and loved them. Done.
Exhibit D: I feel like my wardrobe, especially my pants, is lacking in color and I've noticed that Southern Californians are experts at wearing unexpected fun and bright colors and I just want to fit in darn it! So I got some cute pink shorts. $18. I love Target.
Exhibit E: Love love love this tunic. So pretty and flowy and colorful. On sale for $15.
Mission accomplished.

Cute stuff Paige! I bought some purple shoes a couple of years ago and loved them! I haven't worn them lately but when I wore them... I loved them! I got them from Target! Love me some Target!

Good job Girl!! You have inspired me to go shopping! I will however be blaming you when I have to explain the purchases to husband!!

Good job, Pailge! Cute stuff! I just ordered some really great sailor pants from Anthropologie. They said they were "short" but they're still about 12" too long. Aren't you glad you didn't inherit my stubby legs?

I seriously went shopping all day yesterday and all day today and spent so much money on the cutest stuff ever! I guess it's that time of year where the girls have to go out and shop for fun colors to get rid of the winter wardrobe blahs!

looks like i'm taking a trip to target today -- love the purple shoes! though i gotta say, utah target is crap compared to CA. in pasadena i'd bring new clothes/earrings/purses home from there like once a week...my new target constantly disappoints. :(

Jennifer said...

Paige, you are always wearing the brightest colors...and make them look good!! I live in Black and White....the last bathing suit I bought was even Black and White. Maybe you can send some color style my way! Haha.

Oooh, how exciting! LOVE the stuff you got! You SO deserve this pick-me-up! (And funny because as I was putting clothes away this morning, I thought of you! LOL. 'Member when you said you wanted to raid my closet?! LOL. I wish we lived closer, so we could share clothes!)

Can't wait to see you wearing and enjoying your new, cute stuff! :-D
