Slippery Slope of Shopping

So, it should surprise no one that the (non-price adjusted) boots have not been returned. In fact, I am now in love with them. I wore them earlier this week and had one of those days where all is right with the world because you really, really like your outfit. I know that must sound shallow, but when I feel like I am pulled together, I have a much happier outlook on life.

But here is where the trouble begins. Now that I have The (free due to gift card) Boots, I keep seeing all these (not free) things that would look Just Sensational with my Boots. Like these courduroy skirts from Skirt Spot:












Aren't they adorable? I also saw a ton of cute fall skirts at Talbots when I was in Virginia. I didn't try any on, as I was on my way to the airport at that point and could not fit even one more thing into my bag. But again, how cute would this be with The Boots? Also, Ann Taylor Loft has some lovely skirts that called to me... This is how it starts...

There is always something that you will need a nice skirt for with boots when the weather cools down in Chicago. I say go for it. (I know I am holding myself back on a few items until it gets some cooler).

I love the skirts- and I know just what you mean about feeling happier and more at home with yourself when you have a great outfit.

I decided I wanted the first skirt a few days ago and now you've convinced me!

Just had to write about the Pumpkin Bars recipe you posted a while back. I made them, and they are delicious! I've been reading your blog for some time now, and haven't commented...but this recipe forced me out of the woodwork!

THANK YOU!
P.S. I used canned pumpkin, easy and just as good!

Yikes - how have I not know about the existence of Skirt Spot? Thanks for the link - everytime I visit your blog, I find a new shopping website to check out.

The J. Crew boots are amazing. I saw them at the store and have fallen in love. They would look great with the skirts you picked out.
