I dont know how it is possible, but literally every time I get to the 8th or 9th of a new month I find myself with approximately $200.00 in my checking account that is supposed to last me until the 15th. I mean.... how is this possible? I recently told some of my girlfriends that I might need to try hypnotherapy to solve my little tiny itsy bitsy problem with shopping... I want to save now more than ever, especially because Mr. S and I would love to be able to buy a house at some point in the not-too-crazy-far-off-distant future, but for some reason it is virtually impossible for me to not shop at least a little! I mean, almost everything I buy is a good deal... I utilize Gilt frequently, love the sale pages of shopbop and revolve, and always try to find a coupon code before clicking "purchase" for anything! Alas... here I am, its the 8th of July, and I find myself with $202 in my checking account once again. Rats. This means that I am not going to be able to purchase these Kat boots by Loeffler Randall (which are totally summer boots and I can imagine 2934785 outfits they would go with perfectly, especially because it is FREEZING in Los Angeles in July, which makes no sense), this pleated flower dress by Halston Heritage (which would be amazing for one of the 4 weddings I will be attending in the next month since it is summery but not white, which everyone knows you are not supposed to wear to a wedding, and yet almost all the dresses that are perfect for a summer wedding seem to only be made in the color white latetly - annoying), this Marti Long Flap Wallet by See by Chloe (no discussion necessry.. so cute), this Paisley Maxi dress by Madewell (which, incidentally, would be amazing with the Loeffler boots that I also cannot purchase), this insanely pretty and elegant dress by Lela Rose (which, since it is white, would not be appropriate for a wedding, as mentioned above), or any of these scarves also by Madewell that would liven up any outfit.
