Casual shopping day outfit




The weather has been warming up a bit around here and I have to say I am really happy about that!  I can't wait to start taking my daughter to the park, go on my nightly walks, and sit on my back patio on my swing.  I love being outdoors and I have definitely being having a bad case of cabin fever lately.

Anyway, enough about the weather!  Over the weekend my husband gave me the "okay" to spend a little bit of our tax return, so I jumped on that (of course)!  We've been on a spending freeze since before Christmas, so I was very ready to shop!  I found so many cute things that I can't wait to show you.  I'm planning on doing a monthly spending post at the end of the month to show everything I bought this month.

This is the outfit that I wore for a relaxing day of shopping...  I should have worn comfier shoes!  I have always thought my booties were comfortable but I guess when you are doing laps around a mall you need something just a bit comfier.  Oops!

  3. Shame those boots weren't comfy after a busy day of walking, as they look very cute! So does the rest of your outfit, I like your purple cardi :)

    Hope you had a really fun and productive day of shopping! Always exciting when you get a little extra to spend! :)

  6. I think my feet just aren't used to be in heels for so long anymore. I normally wear flats because theya re easier to chase my daughter around in. lol. I found so many amazing deals, I can't wait to share them!

  8. They really do!! I was there for about 3 hours too so that's probably why they really started to hurt. lol! I'm excited to show everyone what I got this month

  9. The booties might not have been comfy for all day, but they sure looked cute! Loving the stripes and the colour of your cardigan. It's warming up here too and I've so enjoyed extending our walks these past few days. I hope it lasts! Everyone seems to be in such a better mood :-)

  10. haha thank you so much! I've been wearing stripes so often lately. I get stuck on patterns for a whille and wear them like crazy, before this it was flannel. lol! I can't wait to go for a good hike in another month or so. That's how we keep off every Spring/Summer

  19. Thanks Gina! I absolutely love the color of this cardigan. I've been pairing it with everything just so I can wear it more often. I actually snagged it after these pictures so I'm taking it to my grandma with hopes that she can fix it

  24. I really like that outfit, the cardigan looks perfect! I know what you mean about shoes at the mall, I feel like no matter what kind of shoes I wear they always end up hurting my feet in the end. There's just no safe footwear for an intense shopping session lol! It's finally warming up here, and I'm SO happy about it :)

  25. Cute!! I like being comfortable when I shop too. I usually wear flats or sneakers because it's crazy how much walking you do when you shop, even just in one store! I'm so glad the weather is warming up!

  26. I guess I just wasn't thinking when I picked those booties. lol! Normally they are very comfortable, I think it was just all the laps that I was doing. haha! I will definitely reach for comfier shoes next time tho.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thanks so much! and haha that's true! When I wear my comfier shoes I end up aching afterwards anyway. Whether it's my back or feet, something hurts! haha. I am really happy about the warmer weather we've been getting the past couple days

  28. Ha! This post hits close to home! My boyfriend and I had just planned on going out to lunch so I wore my taupe booties which are similar in shape to yours. It turned into walking around the mall and playing mini golf. By the end of the afternoon, my feet were killing me! I always try to wear flat, comfy shoes for shopping. Ouch!


    I love these dark colors on you! Plus stripes are always a winner. Yay for warmer weather! It's warmed up here too, it's supposed to be 74 on Sunday. 74!

  29. Thanks so much! Yeah, I definitely learned to wear comfier shoes next time. I ended up with a small blister and everything. Boo! I think it's supposed to be really warm on Monday for us but then it's going to cool off again as the week goes
