Non-Buyer's Remorse.

So today wasn't the best day. It certainly wasn't the worst day... but it just wasn't the best.

{My highlight of the day at 2 PM- best afternoon pick-me-up ever}

Whenever I seem to be a bit confused or frustrated, I like to spend time alone in stores. I could spend hours browsing the pretty things, grazing my finger along the lace hems and the patent shoes and getting lost in my thoughts- not in an Emo way or anything, just in a distracted way.

On such a venture today, I tried on 3 things at Nordstrom Rack:

I tried on the above jeans and I ended up getting them because the dirty, boyfriend-esque wash won me over (ps- keep in mind this is a post-gym picture, the dirty-old-man tank top is what I wore to work out and the work-out hair speaks for itself).

But... in the spirit of sticking to a budget, I walked away from these 2 items:

7 skinny jeans and a maiden-ey white top stayed at the store.

What do you think?

Should I go back and get the outfit right above or am I just letting my love for ripped jeans paired with white tops blind me?

PS- Happy Thursday :) Lot on my mind so a shallow light blog topic post today seemed perfect.

I say skip it. You walked away from it for a reason, and you could probably find a better deal at Ross, TJ Maxx or Marshall's.

Also, the white top doesn't do your lovely figure justice!

i think you did the right thing by walking away from it! love the jeans you bought though, way cute!! hope you have a better day tomorrow!!

If it'll make you happy and cause you some sleepless nights, then go back and buy them. Hahaha! Sorry, I'm not the best shopping adviser. I will tell you to buy anything. I love your new jeans though... great buy! xoxo

You probably did the right thing - see if you keep thinking about them. If you do, maybe go back and get them :)

..well , let me say that you have an amazing body and those jeans in first picture is just perfect ..and it's hard to find the perfect jeans , isn't it !

..and from my own experience - if I want something and never get it in the first time in the shop - when I get it after I never wear it anyway ..don't know what is the reason but it always happening like that ..I think the 'wished item' just loosing the magic in some strange way ..

..and have a great day , just think how good you look in those jeans ..wooow ..

I love the top ones best. The other 2 aren't must haves or you would have got them. Who knows? Maybe there's a ripped legging in your future. God knows you've got the legs for 'em sister!! xoxo - Carrie

i think the skinny jeans actually look great on you! as far as the fit and the look. but i think if you really LOVED them, you would have gone home with them. what brands were you trying on?

Whenever I need to time alone or time to clear my mind, I love to browse bookstores.

DO NOT get them. Remember your goals. Remember your temptations. Your goals are more important than more clothes. I will be mad at you if you get them. As your sister who loves you, no more shopping for a bit!

Those jeans rock! I love that wash, it's awesome! I also shop for entertainment, I don't even have to buy anything, I just live in fantasyland! XO!

Seriously, I'm glad you walked away from those last two items - they totally don't do you justice. You'll find something FAR better, and be glad that you saved your money!! :)
