Happy Tuesday people! I am beyond excited to head to Austin tonight for SXSW. I feel like time has absolutely flown by and I can’t believe it’s already time to go! I’ve been doing a little too much shopping lately to get ready for the fun so I decided to link up with Becky and Treat Yourself Tuesday to share my latest treats.
I can’t remember how long my “no shopping” was supposed to last but it definitely came to a crashing halt this week. I have been dying to get a fake leather jacket because its an amazing staple and my wardrobe is sad without one so I hit the mall this weekend and found this jacket at Express. I’m loving all the floral and leather happening this spring but I feel like a good black leather jacket works every season all the time so this was more of a necessity than a treat, right?
I actually fell in love with a real leather jacket first and it was on a 60% off rack, true love right? Wrong. Someone put it there by mistake and broke my heart. I’ll be okay though don’t worry about me.
The jeans pictured above are brand new as well. They were on sale at a shop on my way home from work and when I see a pair that fits on sale I just can’t say no. People say that jeans are jeans and I hate to sound snobby but for women of height brand seriously matters. Very few brands make jeans that fit me and it’s one of life’s great struggles.
Done complaining about ridiculous things. Sorry.
My mom was in town last week as well so obviously we did some shopping. We stopped by Madewell where I found this adorable red skirt.
And I picked up some fun sandals as well (also pictured with the skirt). Spring is right around the corner and what’s springtime without some fun new sandals?
I also finally made some time for myself this weekend and dedicated almost all of Saturday to me. I woke up early and went to yoga which felt amazing. It was my second week in a row, I’m on a roll!
After yoga I caught up on Greys Anatomy and did my nails. It was pretty exciting.
Finally on Sunday after my race, my roommate and I went to the park with smoothies, books, and snacks to just hang out and enjoy the sun. It was absolutely fantastic and I made a solid dent in my March book.
I also had chipotle for dinner and it was amazing. I’m super excited about jacket/ jeans/ new clothes but sometimes treating myself with just a relaxing day of yoga and TV is the best thing ever.
How did you treat yourself this week?
What is your spring wardrobe staple?
