Today plus the Long Merino Cardigan in Bronzed Twig

Crazy enough, I am already going into shopping withdrawals just thinking about the July Shopping Ban. Pathetic...I know! Tomorrow I will lay out my personal rules and feel free to share your ideas.
Here is what I wore today. I had planned to wear a pencil skirt but I have been feeling a little yucky and couldn't motivate myself beyond jeans.

Cami, Cardigan & Shoes-Banana Republic
Weekend Jeans-Old Navy

The UPS man came today with some J Crew and Banana Republic goodies that I will give you a review on tomorrow. I had received some questions on the long merino cardigan and the coloring of the bronzed twig. I fell in love with this cardigan in the catalog and had to order it. It is hard to capture the color right so I put it next to the Pecan Coralie Cami and the spicy olive jackie so you could get an idea of the tone. It is more bronzey brown then green but it definitely has a green hue to it. First impression....love. It has big comfy pockets and is very long in length. More info to come......

Four packages came for me yesterday (including my JCrew sale stuff) and hubby was home to receive it...oops. I might join you in your shopping ban. I am going into mini convulsions just thinking about it.

I completed my "monthly spending" for June this morning and after reviewing the last quarter of my shopping expenses...I'm going to follow your lead and institute a July shopping ban! Thanks for the inspiration (my pocketbook thanks you more!)

I am with you on the pre-ban anxiety. Since deciding to join the July ban, I have been on a last minute shopping binge like a drug addict about to enter rehab! It doesn't help that my favorite stores are suddenly offering 40% off sales. I am looking forward to hearing any helpful tips, my brain is already searching for ban loopholes! :)
