I had a free Sunday two weeks ago while C spent the day on the golf course, so on a whim, I drove to Orlando to do a little shopping. Armed with a list of skin care that needed restocking (more on that soon) I headed to Millenia, home of the best Sephora. While I was there, I popped into Forever21 for the first time in probably a decade, and y’all, I wanted a LOT of stuff. Their summer collection in shades of earthy neutrals with 90s-inspired button down mini dresses, flowy linens, and boxy tops drew me in like a moth to a flame.
Am I too old to shop there? Probably.
Did it stop me? Nope.
Does the store still give me sensory overload and a sense of anxious overwhelm? Definitely.
I picked up these strappy toe ring sandals for $18 and I’ve basically lived in them for the last two weeks. They’re super comfortable and have a minimally-chic summer vibe similar to my beloved TKEES ‘Foundation’ flip flops. I may order an extra pair online to get me through summer; we know I love good a wardrobe staple back-up, and at this rate, I may wear them out by the end of July.
I also bought a $23 chambray striped mini dress that I’ve already worn three times.
