I missed The Day After Christmas shopping extravaganza because we were still celebrating at my parents' house. I don't think my family would have approved of me ducking out of our gift exchange and lunch to go shopping. So, I had to drum up every ounce of patience and wait until Friday to venture out to the stores. Surprisingly I only bought thing. I know, completely out of character.
Banana Republic Gold Metallic Pullover // Banana Republic Rain Boots (only one size left online, but use the store locator to find a pair. That's what I did) // Plaid Top from ModCloth // Kendra Scott Earrings // Forever 21 Chain Link Necklace // ModCloth Leather Satchel // Land's End Plaid Puffer Vest // Forever 21 Stripe Dress // Forever 21 Anchor Studs // Forever 21 Tassel Necklace // Sam & Libby Leopard Boots // Lauren Conrad Gold Polka Dot Sweater
The rest of everything you see above are either gifts from Ross or the damage I did online Friday and Saturday night. I know it looks like I went a teeny bit overboard with the spending, but in my defense, most were on super sale and I used gift cards for 80% off it.
I don't know about you guys, but I think online shopping is the way to go. I used to get a high from hitting the mall after Christmas and any other day of the week, but lately, it makes me crazy...the crowds, people, messes, digging, more digging and the stores not being stocked with merchandise like they have online. It was actually therapeutic sitting in my PJs for a
few several hours to shop, browse and add things to next year's Christmas list. I believe I may have switched over from the dark side to a much happier place called checking out with the mouse. Done and done.
In case you are wondering why this post is titled "Totally Typical", it's because I know you guys didn't expect anything other than seeing me add more stripes, dots, plaid and leopard to my closet. I need to try being a bit more unpredictable. I don't want to start boring anyone around here.
