New Things

I’ve been trying to be really good about budgeting lately since I still have a stack of hospital bills to pay off. Some days I’m more disciplined than others. I know it’s never good to buy things to make yourself feel better and feed into consumer culture, blah, blah, blah. But sometimes when you’re down, a new item of clothing or a cheap sparkly ring, is exactly what you need want.

Two weeks ago I was desperate for something new and shiny to get my mind off stressful health stuff and I remembered that I had a few giftcards from Shopbop – woohoo! So I ended up getting a BB Dakota Lillian Drapey Front Jacket and a MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Cross Body Bag.

Yes, I’m bringing the late 90s back with my loose fitting bootleg jeans. Don’t judge. They’re comfortable and perfect for the weekend.

And last but not least, thank you to everyone for such wonderful and sweet comments on my last post! It’s not easy for me to open up about my health on the blog and all of your support and kind words mean so much. Now that I’m almost back to 100%, I’ll be blogging a lot more regularly!

  1. I’m so glad to see you feeling better and blogging again! I love your “late 90s” jeans. I’ve been wearing mine lately too–they’re the best!

    1. Haha. Bootlegs are classic, but mine are definitely on the baggy not-so-cool side 🙂 You are definitely NOT uncool!

  2. Hi Cath

    You look amazing! So red and cute and blarf-y (scarf blanket — I need to find a new name for that).

    And I love, love, love your jacket and Michael Kors bag from Shopbop! They are both just perfect — as are your comfy jeans. I love how they don’t look trendy.

    During the sale, I got a Baggu leather bag and a bikini top — I’ll show you in a postie.

    You are inspiring me to dress better on the weekends.

    xoxox,
