i’m wearing: h&m sweater, h&m paisley print skirt, spike the punch necklace and me too flats.

last weekend my hubby watched the baby so i could go shopping ALL BY MYSELF. this means no bag filled with food and no sweat beads on my forehead from racing around on limited time. i finally got to spend my h&m gift cards from my birthday that were burning a hole in my pocket. and i even went bra shopping. which to me is worse than jean or bathing suit shopping. even that went smoothly. it was a good day. =)

    ugh – bra shopping…that is seriously the worst! After I was done nursing my son, I did that and spent like an hour crying in the fitting room when I realized I had shrunk two cup sizes šŸ™

    Love that skirt on you – I saw it in the store, but would have been way too short on me. And I want to steal those flats from you, btw!

    Ohhhh, shopping by oneself is The Best. And actual clothing shopping by oneself? Awesome. I find it pretty telling when I’m happy just to be grocery shopping by myself. Ah well, such is life! You look smashing, as usual!!

    My condolences to you for having to do bra shopping. I agree that it’s the worst type of shopping to do. I’ve been putting it off myself.

    I think this might be my favourite outfit on you. Great colour and if I were you I’d always have my legs out! šŸ™‚

    I had a dream the other night that I was shopping and my shopping time got cut off early because somebody needed something. That is usually the case in reality! Hard to get that solo, uninterrupted time. You look so cute! I love the little bows on your shoes.

    Jenn how can you hate shopping for lingerie? I am going to get you over to NYC for a shopping trip pronto!

    Nice to get some time to yourself – sounds like a very successful trip! I’ve been seeing some other paisley style prints like your skirt in Manhattan recently – I was wondering how I might wear it and this is a great example. Neon’s still hot this summer – great look.

    Gorgeous skirt- the print is just amazing. But I seriously have a hard time seeing you running around anywhere with a sweatband on. And I’m with you on the bra shopping-hate it as much as I hate swimsuit shopping…which I need to do soon šŸ™

    I love the outfit, the skirt is so much fun, the pink sweater is genius and the pop of contrasting colour on the necklace is awesome.

    LOVE the paisley skirt. It’s got some neutral to ground the colorful outfit. LOL on shopping yourself — I KNOW EXACTLY how that feels, to be able to shop by yourself. My hubby let me do that on Mother’s Day šŸ˜‰
