So I have been relatively good for the month of July, only picking up a few pieces here and there, especially since I have a wedding to go to (at least that's how I have been justifying those purchases). But then Friday I met up with a friend downtown....
I picked up these Lexie shorts in Aviator Navy Blue (they look much better on, I swear). We have been experiencing a heatwave here in MTL the last couple of weeks, so a pair of shorts is essential! Although I really don't think they're work appropriate; I tend to justify most purchases by asking myself: Can I wear these to work? Plus they were on sale and I scored an extra 20% off with my student ID.
On Saturday I needed to pass by Forever 21 to pick up some basic tees, instead I walked away with:
these Sam Edelman Gigi T strap flat sandals. I spotted these (in brown) last week at the Bay, but walked away. But they constantly lingered in my mind, so when I passed by the Bay I decided to take a peek and see if I could spot them. I couldn't find them, but Lily spotted these ones instead and I have to say I love the pop of color.
I remember reading on about the on Lil Lady's Life blog, where she recommends buying half a size up. I have to agree they are true to size. I'm generally a size 7 and I found that size 7 fit perfectly, but my little toes were on the verge of falling off. so I took her advice and bought half a size up. I never use to consider myself to have wide feet, but I guess I do?
The Bay is currently having their seasonal shoe clearance sale; you get an additional 30% off on all sale items. The icing on the cake I got an additional 20% off thanks to an email offer! How could I walk away? They were practically free!
I was doing so good for the month of July, I think the trick is avoiding all malls and stores! Do you guys have any suggestions on avoiding impulse purchases?
