Wow, what a great response to last night’s post about my budget experiment! It seems a lot of us are struggling with the same compulsions to shop-til-we-drop, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your words of support and encouragement. It’s always a little intimidating to open up with such personal issues in this space, but I told myself that if it resonated with just one of you and sparked a “hey, I’m dealing with that, too!,” it would be completely worth it. So I’m really glad to read your comments and see that many of you related to my situation.

I’m looking forward to sharing this little journey with all of you over the next several months, and if anyone would like to join in the challenge and needs some support along the way, I’m happy to lend an ear. It’s always easier to take on a diet with a buddy, and spending diets are no different.


In other news, after [not so] patiently waiting for what seems like an eternity, we’ve finally gotten a tiny taste of fall crispness in the air down here! It’s not exactly boots and scarves weather, but I can get away with a sweater without suffering heat stroke. I’ll take what I can get!

    1. I must confess, it took me a loooong time to get comfortable with the idea of print-mixing. I grew up with the mantra, “Stripes and plaid are really bad!” (I feel like this is a quote from a movie, but I can’t remember which one…)

      I recommend starting with simple stripes — you’ll be surprised at how many ways you can work a striped top with patterned bottoms!

  1. I love your skirt! It’s such a fun pattern. I love scarf and boot weather :) It’s almost to that point where I live, but then the weather will do a 180 and it will be 70 or 80 degrees!

    1. Ugh, right there with you, Jennifer! Today it’s in the 70’s and really overcast, but I’m sure by the weekend we’ll sail back into the 90’s. We definitely have to check the weather every morning before getting dressed around here!
