Big thanks to everyone who helped me reason over the wanna-be high-low dress debacle. I'm about 98% sure I'm going to return it now. Which was what my original thought was, but sometimes you just need a girlfriend in the dressing room with you to justify what you're already thinking. Or in my case, 23 girlfriends. All in one dressing room. Yep.
One purchase I made recently that I certainly don't regret though are these teal (turquoise? I'm terrible at color shades) heels I found at TJ Maxx. I've been wanting a pair of heels in some shade of blue for a couple months now (every little thing she does is magic!), and I saw the one's I'm wearing at TJ Maxx a couple months ago, but were $40. Which really isn't a ton for shoes, but blue heels is kind of a scary clothing item to me, and one that I didn't want to majorly invest in right away. When I visited TJ Maxx this past Sunday, however, these little babies were marked down to $27.99, and I couldn't resist. They're so much pointier than anything I've ever had, but I kind of like it! It's kinda fancy, yeah? If I wasn't sure about the color, I'm sure now. We are going to be friends, sweet little blue shoes. Good friends.
Also, my plan this month was to find boyfriend jeans. Who would think that a curvier girl would look bad in loose-fitting jeans, right? I mean, I'm not even ridiculously curvy. Or heavy. Or thin. I'm not like, anything. Right? I'm average. So why do boyfriend jeans look so weird on me? But they are loose in the waist, tight in the butt and thighs, baggy in the knee, and slightly tight in the calves. And sizing up just means there's like two inches of extra fabric at the waist and it looks bulky in all my tops. So what have I started doing? Pulled out the two-sizes-too-big skinny jeans that twenty-pounds-heavier Lynette used to try to squeeze into, and rolled them up, and decided that they will work for now. They may like tighter-fitting in these photos, but they're actually quite loose. And by quite loose I mean not painted on like my normal skinny jeans. Does that work? It's cool with me if it's cool with you.
