Summer uniform.

H&M tank; American Eagle jeans and corset bra; Forever 21 sandals; Dynamite sunnies

I hope to be wearing a version of this outfit all summer long. To me it screams beach, heat, and relaxation.

Oh, and those pants I asked for your opinion about on Facebook and Twitter? Well, these are them. I took the plunge last weekend and went to my nearest American Eagle store. They had a 30%-off sale for the Victoria Day long weekend and I took full advantage in buying these pants. Heck-freaking-yes.

And I'm so glad I did. I am in pants loooooveeeeeeee. Seriously, I think it's the real deal. Don't tell my other pants, though. I don't want them getting jealous.

But I'm now on a self-imposed shopping ban. For two months. No, a month. Well, it should be two months, but I probably won't last that long. You know what they say, your goals should be realistic.  So you all have permission to virtually smack me if I come on here talking about a new purchase until the end of June. Yep. All the way until the end of June...

Why are shopping-bans so difficult again?


  1. Love this cute and casual look Kelly! I've put myself on a little shopping ban - the date I can start shopping is literally marked on my calendar :) Good luck to us both!
