Compromise

Hi everyone!  How was your weekend?
Ours was very relaxing, we just cozied up at home pretty much the whole time.  And we went to see The National (who I love) in the rain :(

Last week I went downtown to shop for wedding jewelry.  I couldn't help but check out some other stores while I was down there and ended up buying this scarf and belt (which you can't really see, but was a necessity purchase) from H&M.  I was in need of a black leather belt, and scored this one for $19.99* + 25% off (with a one-day-only coupon that landed in my inbox that morning).  The scarf was $12.95 (and is super soft) and I also purchased a silver statement necklace (here in antique gold).


It's really hard to not think about shopping, to not want to buy new things, to update your wardrobe when the seasons change.  Especially when you're on a budget, or you don't  have a lot of extra spending money lying around (hello, me!).  So purchasing a few inexpensive accessories that you can wear and remix all season is a good compromise; and your wallet & conscience will thank you!

*online price is $14.95 but in stores it was $19.99
