With all the craziness that goes along with Christmas, it wasn't a big shopping month for me. I actually made my only 2 purchases just 2 days ago and came so close to spending nothing this month. In the words of my daughter, "Aw, man!" When my in-laws visited, we went to do a bit of shopping and pick up a few things. We ended up in Hobby Lobby and I saw the cutest sequined sweatshirt for $10. It was a display piece they were selling. Since I am a sucker for sequins and great prices it ended up in my cart. Then there were some great athletic pieces at Costco later. I am in need of some long sleeve running tops so the quarter zip also ended up as a purchase. Now the trail or sidewalk needs to clear off so I can go running and use it! I actually had purchased some riding boots as a replacement for mine because the heel is getting very scuffed and worn. They were gorgeous, but had scratches in them. I reordered them but the same thing happened. It's really too bad because they are comfortable and have a great classic look. For next month I am kind of on the look out for a different replacement pair. It's a great time to buy with all the sales and stores changing their inventory to spring, too. I've gotten so many amazing deals on shoes in January! These MK ones are a great price, but I also have my eye on these Tory Burch ones. Otherwise I am on the hunt for a grey cardigan and some burgundy heels. I haven't decided if I want velvet or not!
What is on your wish list for next month?


  1. I absolutely adore that sequined sweatshirt. This time of year has me in the mood for anything sequined!

  2. So many great items. The ones that stand out to me are the sparkly top, the olive lace up top and those red flats!


  3. You ended up with some great pieces this month - I love the off the shoulder sweater dress.

  4. What a cute sweatshirt and great price! You did amazingly well at not shopping for yourself this month. I'd say you definitely earned the grey cardigan and burgundy heels!

  8. You got some great basics for sure. I loooove those red flats - are they comfortable? On my wishlist is a really comfortable but high quality pair of flats, actually.

    Happy new year!
