What's a girl to do when there is a blizzard outside and she wants to go shopping?
Option A: Have her husband drive her to the mall.
Option B: Shop online. Duh.
Option C: Disregard her safety and budget and do option A and B. After all, she just had her budget replenished at the start of the month.

Clearly option C was my best bet. It only took us 30 minutes to drive the 5 miles to the mall since the on ramp was not plowed yet. Lo and behold, capitalism waits for no one and the stores were open. Thank goodness they were because we needed a break from that driving! I found some potential black boots to replace my extremely worn ones (last seen here) at DSW. I'm not totally sold though. I really like these from Macy's. I really like the combination of suede and leather and sleek look. I scored a couple items including a pair of Pixie pants from Old Navy for $6 and a red cable knit sweater for $8 with my super cash. Then I came home and purchased a few items from ThredUp. I could be on that site for hours (and I actually have). There are so many great items and the prices are amazing! If you've never shopped there you can use my referral link for $10 off your first purchase. Hope your weather is better than ours!
See how else I've worn my gingham here, here, here, and here.

  17. Never shopped in a blizzard. Did once send J (the hubs) out for chocolate in a snow storm... a girl has to have priorities!

  18. Option C is always the best option! I keep telling myself to go a week without shopping but I fail every time. I love your neon sweater with the gingham underneath! White pants are perfect!

  20. What is it about snow that totally makes me want to shop? I never want to do it online. Noooo. That would be too easy. I must immediately have my purchases in my arms!

  21. You are my kind of person! Shopping during a blizzard!

  22. I need to check out ThredUp! Never heard of it... I can't believe you drove in the blizzard to go shopping! LOL! I would have been online! I just love the neon yellow sweater, that is one of my favorite colors and I can't wait until Spring/Summer when I can wear more of it... but, you are styling it great with the gingham shirt, white skinnies and boots during the winter! Way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well done-- I would have gone with option C too lol. Now you make me want to head over to the outlets ;-)

  24. Now that is determination - I probably would have just shopped online!

    Love the neon and gingham combo - I will have to try that!

  26. Hahaha this post had me laughing. When a girl wants to go shopping, she sure finds a way to do it! I never drive in the snow, in fact I've hardly driven here at all actually, so if I can convince my boyfriend to take me shopping, I jump on it! Loving your white pants for winter!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Haha I feel like on snow days I always want to go out and do something too instead of being cooped up inside! Luckily I live 1/2 mile from the mall if I get the urge :) I love this neon and gingham combo! It's so fun!

  28. Sounds like a worthwhile shopping excursion! Love this featured look! Where was I when Target offered these fab gingham shirts? T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  29. I know what you mean we had a major snow day today and if I wasn't sick I would so go shopping! Cute look, I'm loving the neon with the pretty white necklace!

  31. I've definitely spent hours at a time on ThredUp before too--it's so easy to get sucked in, checking the offerings in your favorite brands!
