A bug

For what reason I'm much more shopping needy this season than I have been in years. What I really want, is about 5 more gap or old navy long sleeve Ts, pretty much one in each color. I know I'm awful.
A circle hobo bag.
And a pair of brown boots for under $40.
I feel like everyone has brown boots but me, which is not true, its just two girls that also teach in primary have boots and I do not. I guess that means I'm coveting. I'm a boot lover. As a child, when everyone else would get new atheltic shoes for school, I got boots. I didn't want to play sports and I didn't want that footwear. I have stupid feet every since a hiking issue when I was 17, so I can't wear much other than Birkenstocks and expensive running shoes. But I refuse to be a mom that always wears running shoes, my husband doesn't understand. But all I want is boots. I have snow boots, rain boots, black tall boots, now I need brown boots. I almost bought some patchwork brown boots a few years ago, but they were two sizes too big, which means they now would only be one size too big. But none the less. I'm a sinner, if you are wearing brown boots this fall to church, I'm jealous.
Now for the hobo, leather, or at least fake leather has been in for the past few years. I have not jumped on the wagon. I will now be blunt, rude, and mean, but I do not like most of the "fashionable" leather "in style" purses right now. I refuse to wear something that looks like what my mother wore when I was a small child. I have a vivid memory, no, no to poofy wrinkly leather/faux leather bags. My husband and I had a conversation about these "grandma bags" the other day in the store. Anyway, I found the type of leather bag I want. These cut out circle bags. An ebay seller, as a lot of options. I like the green, pewter/silver/black, and oddly the pink, but I wouldn't actually want the pink. It looks like the seller has about a 100 to sell, so I can take my sweet time finding $30. And then decided I don't have the $30, and fall back on my suede chevron stripe purse (the purse on the right), and forget the faux leather. (I was 5 months pregnant with my son in this picture, on my birthday.)
I like polka dots, stripes, and chevron stripes.

  1. Ahhh...sneakers. I would sleep in them if I could.

    A few weekends ago we were visiting another ward on Sunday and I used it as an oppertunity to wear sneaks to church. It made me so happy.
