At H&M I managed to walk to the register with only 2 items in hand. I had many trips to the fitting room though.
Hot tip: I found it very satisfying to take a picture of the item I couldn't have. It made it easier to keep it on the rack. So, when suffering the guilt from a potential purchase, snap a pic instead and you'll feel better walking away.
Here are a few things I had to leave behind:
how cute is this?! I feel this is very Katie of The Neo Traditionalist. She too has a penchant for polk dots and bows. I think it was only $49.50. Very reasonable, but I have no reason for it...alas....
k, this was more for my mum. Look mum, scottie dogs!
and this little number was on sale for $20! but
A:where/when would I wear it? (usually I just answer 'church' to those questions, but I think God has more important things for me to prioritize than having a new outfit each week)
B: hubby wouldn't 'get' it.
oh, and one thing I did buy... see the little turquoise luggage in the bottom of the pic. It's a Heys ultra lightweight carry on. I found it earlier that day at Winners for $34.00!!! Steal of a deal!
