Hubby and I took the kids to the mall today. I wanted to walk and browse, and with cell phones in hand, we parted ways through the starting gate. Oldest went his own way, Hubby took Mini to go rent one of those car shaped strollers, and I made my way through clothing store after clothing store.
I have come to realize I am very much out of fashion if I am to judge by what's on the rack. Who are these wonderwomen who can actually wear the gauzy no-bra tank tops with spaghetti straps? Or maybe it's just a designer fantasy, since the racks were stocked with those shirts, and I saw no one near or far actually wearing one of them. Sorry YSL - I gotta have boob support. Pretty top or not, gotsta have enough coverage for a bra.
I ended up leaving most stores empty handed... at least until I stopped by Rave. That's my fave store in the mall, and learned just today they are closing down at our mall. Sad, sad indeed, but on the same level, everything was half off. So I bought four shirts and a pair of khaki cargos. After that I went and bought a new pair of shoes at Shoe Depot. Plaid (teal and blue) beachy looking Rocket Dogs. I love 'em. I've been needing a new pair since the gnomes stole my last pair of sneaks. (It's been months now and I still haven't recovered those shoes!)
That's pretty much been the highlight of my day. Relaxing, shopping, hanging out with the hubby and kids. Tomorrow I'll be doing much of the same...oh, and posting over at the Cobblestone Press author's blog, so drop by if you're in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello!
Happy weekend, everyone!
