So About That Spending Freeze

Well I was supposed to be on a spending freeze and I was doing really, really well until... all my favorite stores started holding big summer sales. Sigh.

And really now J. Crew you just had to go and have a 40% off already marked clearance items sale right? Well... thanks, thanks a lot.
Thanks for contributing to the destruction of my spending freeze, and making my closet a whole lot cuter.

J. Crew I like you, I really like you a lot. I also really appreciate that I always need to size down one or two sizes when I buy your clothing. You really know how to make a girl feel good about herself. =P

 I may or may not have purchased way too many of the above pictured items. Sorry Mom, I swear I've been trying really really hard to save money. But seriously, this sale... it was just that good =P

Special shout out to Cole at the Fashion Valley J. Crew store. You're all kinds of wonderful =)

There's nothing like a sale to ruin a spending freeze! You got a lot of nice stuff out of it though, I like your style:)

There is nothing better in life than a Jcrew sale. I'm guilty as well. xoxo, hma

i love it when jcrew has the extra off the sale section! can't pass it by without getting something!!

Anna said...

so cute!!! I'm horrible at saving too- and you may or may not have just convinced me to quit my spending freeze and go to j crew right now...

Heidi said...

Oh, J. Crew. Gets me every time! They offer a nice little teacher discount with my teacher ID so they always reel me in. You got some pretty cute stuff!

Cara-Mia said...

I love it all! (Even that mint skirt, which looked horrible on me. Puckered up no matter what size I tried. Boo.) Confession: I ran to the Fashion Valley store yesterday when I saw they had 40% off and bought some neon coral pants. Still tempted to get some shoes, too. Saving money is hard while J Crew is around.

Very, very cute stuff! I'm having trouble saying no to the summer sales. My attempt at a spending freeze lasted about 2 days.

Morg said...

Your blog is absolutely adorable! I came across it on accident but it's too cute not to follow. Keep up the lovely work! Love those classic J. Crew pieces. Great taste in fashion.

seriously, J Crew is such a weakness.

Sarah Pete said...

Fun fun! I must confess, I've never shopped J. Crew, but now I must definitely check them out :]

Allie said...

AHHH you did it. i also had my eye on the striped sleeveless top!

Anna Elder said...

Ah yes, j.crew is good at sucking you into their sales. Love that striped top!

Laura | The Velvet Doe said...

LOVE J Crew. Just wish they didn't charge an arm and a leg to ship to Australia! :)

Martie @ Spunkyrella said...

I currently finish up reading The Happiness Project and it says when you spend money for a quality purpose something that makes your life happier/easier,it´s worth it. Just save up the lil stuff, a few dollars here and there can really add up!

Love the bow cami and the green pants!

Lieke said...

Haha! Sounds so familiar!!! My trick to just avoid the shops all together! But when there is sale it is very difficult... and of course there is sale online as well...

Nicole Marie said...

obviously i want the striped cami real bad
