Thrifty Summer Shopping

Good morning all!
Just had to take a minute to post.
Today's the boy's last day of school...
I'm so ready to get this summer started.

Now on to the topic at hand.
You know I love to shop.
The only thing that makes shopping
more fun is when I score a tremendous deal.
Since this weather's heating up,
I've been pulling out the summer wardrobe.
Let's just say it left a lot to be desired.
Either too big, too small, or just plain u-g-l-y.
Yes, I've been like Goldilocks.

I thought I could purchase everything at once.
You know the kind of shopping.
If you like it, buy it in three colors.
That so didn't work.
Instead I decided to buy one piece each time I shopped.
It made finding the perfect piece so much easier.

I've frequented Walmart, TJMaxx, Tuesday Mornings,
Catos and even stopped by Target.
My favorite finds were two dressier tops from Walmart.
The top I wore to Joseph's party was $3
and the one I wore to church on Sunday was $5,
I also love the white to the knee linen shorts
I found at Cato for less than $20.

I know Andy's noticed my bargains.
I'd say I've really impressed him
with my mad shopping skillz.
The proof?
On Sunday I picked up a pair of
dark denim to the knee shorts at Target.
I've been looking for a pair of dark dressy
shorts for about three weeks now.
These fit and I liked them so I had to make them mine.
When the lady at the register told me my total
was $21 Andy gave me the big eye.
I could read his thoughts...
that is SO not a good deal for you!

The morale of the story??
If you're in the market for a summer wardrobe
and you want it on the cheap,
keep your eyes open and check out the clearance rack.
You can pair your bargains with
some cute switch flops & Brighton jewelry.
Before you know it your styling and profilin'! ;>
