when zombies take you shopping

top: F21 necklace: c/o Blue Bird pants: Old Navy watch: Fossil booties: Target lips: NYC Champagne Stain lip stain

Shopping. Is there anything like it? The scouring and pouring over endless aisles and racks searching for that special something, to go in that special place, that has a perfectly special price, is just the best. Well, my friends, that special hobby has gotten the best of my this past week. I don't really know what it is. It could have been the really (I mean REALLY) good deals I got on everything, or the fact that I just got paid. Either way, it kicked my butt. Have you ever bought a lot of stuff and written it all down and how much it cost and added it up? If not, next time you go shopping multiple places, take a pad of paper and a pen and write down your expenses, because let me tell you, it's literally a smack in the face. After writing everything down that I spent this past week, it was like a zombie had invaded my body, decided that it had all the money in the world to spend, and shopping at Target and Goodwill were it's places of choice. I am not really sure what happened, but I ended up with two pairs of pants, a top, booties, lip stain, hair ties, nail polish, salad servers, and incredible cute mid-century modern chair, wall decorations, and an iphone case. 

Here is the moral to this story, write down your expenses. It really helps you to realize how much you spent, where you spent it, and how badly you actually need it. Because we all know that zombies invade our bodies and take us shopping like money grows on trees, but when they leave it is helpful to look back at the damage that zombie did, and (hopefully) not do it again. Unless of course you absolutely positively have to have it (my excuse).

I hear you! This has helped me so much. I hate that feeling after you spend to much. Makes me regret it altogether. When you force yourself to name a dollar amount budget it helps a great deal.
Love your look btw!

I've been guilty of blacking out and buying up everything in site- most recently, at JCrew. Holy mother of charges. :)

You look amazing!
