I'll only fly away....

Today is a crazy, busy day but hey, when isn't it? You'd think that would get my mind of shopping...wrong. Last night I had a Banana Republic return to make and they had just gotten their new arrivals in. Look at this adorable graphic tee I picked up.....I just love it! And it was less then my return so I came home with more money then I started with...whoop! whoop! I didn't see this tee online with the other new ones so it may be in store only. AND they gave me the wonderful Wednesday 40% off coupons for July when I can't shop...the nerve. Anyone want them? Free to the first requestor.

So, since my day started by hitting the ground running, I only got as far as washing and drying my hair and throwing it in a ponytail. Since we are having company for dinner I will get around to making it look good later.
Tee-Banana Republic
Skirt-J Crew
Shoes-Rocket Dog

Now I am off to start prepping strawberry spinach salad and caribbean chicken sandwiches for dinner tonight. How are you fellow shopping ban-ers doing out there? Feeling strong?

Hey Lady,

I worked at BR last night and I didnt see that tee, I did see the other cute tees we rolled out. BR has some cute stuff for late summer/early far. Stay strong during your shopping ban :)

Very cute tee, and it looks great with the skirt!

It's only the first day of my July ban so it's a bit premature, but I would say it's going well so far! It's very good to hear of someone else doing it.

fail. Cynthia Vincent for Target flat black sandals on clearance in my size were too much to resist.

I am trying have a July ban, too. So far I haven't spent anything but I'm having a difficult time not spending at the 40% Loft sale. Ugh...

You look super cute, and I hope you had a nice night with your friends.

Debye,
You've inspired me to have a July ban as well - but the 40% off at LOFT is making me re-think the ban.
Since you've had a sneak peak at the fall stuff at LOFT, do you think it's worth waiting until the fall collection comes out?

So far so good on the shopping ban. I like the rules you set for yourself. I plan to do the same. Thankfully there are only two items I must have and I doubt they will go on sale in July. :)
