i splurged and i'm proud of it

A few days ago, I went to Target. Dun, dun, duunnn. But seriously, Target is my downfall. My weakness. And one of my true loves. I adore that store.

I digress (I can digress easily when I talk about Target. Please tell me I'm not alone.).

While my mom picked up some things in a different part of the store, I perused the clothing section. I selected three tops that I liked, and headed to the dressing room, not expecting that any of them would fit me (you have no idea how hard it is to find clothing that actually fit!). 

I tried the first one on and was shocked to find that it rested on my body like it was tailored to fit me. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the other two fit perfectly and looked great.

Let me preface this by saying I'm not a spender. I'm definitely a saver; it's just my personality. Before making a purchase, I usually think long and hard about whether I need it or not. But finding three adorable tops that fit like a glove, when it's quite rare to find an article of clothing that actually fits? It's too hard to pass up.

So I bit the bullet and splurged. And I'm proud of it. I'm glad that I could let go and treat myself a bit, even if it was a little hard to do. ;)

Want to see what I got?

I adore this one - from the lace at the top to the fun floral print...I just love it. And it has pockets! Squeal. 

This tank top. (I know it looks like a dress in the top photo, but I promise it's not :)) It's amazing. I hate it when ribbed tank tops stretch out after wearing - but this one is made of 10% Spandex, so it stays nice and stretchy after wearing. I plan on going back and buying out the store's supply ;) 

(Juniors Long and Lean tank top, if you're interested. I highly, highly recommend it.)

This is such a cute little sweater - and I know it will be put to good use with fall coming up. I love the elbow sleeves (is that what they're called? I have no idea), and it has pockets too! I adore pockets. If you haven't already noticed.

(I got a bit snap happy...sorry. I was just excited ;))

And on top of this, I went to Old Navy and got two pairs of jeans and some flip flops. I love Old Navy's pretty much the only place they fit me perfectly. But the jeans were more of a necessity, as mine from last year hit, oh, mid calf. Yes, I grew a lot this summer ;) 

Moving right along.

Have you splurged on something recently?

Also, my giveaway ends TONIGHT. It's your last chance to enter if you haven't already done so!

Happy Sunday!


PS I don't mean to sound like I'm bragging in the post - I'm just genuinely excited about my new clothes and I wanted to show you. Please don't take it the wrong way! :)
