S is for Shopping
I love to shop, but there are few things more frustrating than shopping for something in particular. It’s the easiest way to spend more than you want to spend and end up with something less than perfect. I prefer to shop on my own terms. Let’s call it browsing, with the occasional purchase.
But this weekend, I had a spring wedding to attend. You know, in our 30 degree sleeting weather. I knew I wanted to wear something with a little more warmth than typically required this time of year, but I still wanted to look springy and wedding-like.
I put together an outfit with bright colors and boots, but I still needed one thing that wasn’t already in my closet: a clutch.
Sure, I own a couple of clutches, but none in the right colors, shades, and style.
So, I decided this time I had to shop for a particular item.
I ended up with this floral media case, which I used as a clutch for the evening. It worked out perfectly! The size was great. The colors were awesome. At $5, the price was right. And the floral pattern added an extra touch of spring.
I’ll count this as one time shopping for something in particular worked out in my favor.
