Aaaahhh...that's the sound of the end of a relaxing three day weekend (or is it 'Waaaaahh!' ?).  The hubbers and I did make it into the city for some shop hopping, where he ended up scoring better than I (how did that happen?).  It seems like I've become exceedingly picky picky picky about clothing these days.

I did walk away with these super cute little ankle socks (I'm wearing the gray ones today with red heels! hello, fall. :D )

I think ankle socks will help keep my tights infatuation at bay, at least until the weather's a bit cooler.


I also snapped up this navy blue sweater from American Eagle.  I'm in love with the detailing!

PS - Target has some super duper soft plaid flannel shirts for a STEAL, but their stupid website won't let me grab a photo.  Go here if you're interested. (I bought the red one and the yellow one...I just couldn't resist!)

We also went on a super touristy (but fun) tour (more about that another day), painted an indecisive wall in our living room and rescued Fifi from a torn claw (bloody paws looks about a BILLION times worse on a white kitty. frownfrownfrown!).  Other than that last bit, it was a lovely and low key weekend.

{ how was yours? }

    aww poor kitteh :(

    congrats on becoming a true washingtonian by donning the "socks and sandals" fashion trend.

    at least your socks and "sandals" are fancy ones, so you won't be ridiculed :p

    oh man, i'm way jealous of that AE sweater!

  7. heather on September 7, 2010 at 3:18 PM

    Yay! Even if you didn't totally score, it sounds pretty good to me! I've always been a pretty big fan of Target clothes, isn't that funny? Well, at least the cool T-shirts and things like these flannels! Everything else (pants or dress-wise) always used to be huge! But that was a few years ago...

    I love the ankle socks and sweater from AE. It sounds like your shopping trip was a success although the hubby scored more that you did:-). Sorry to hear about dear kitty kitty though:(.

    I had one of those plaid shirts in my cart !!! ...but then the boys REALLY needed socks and underwear ( much less glamourous ) ...sigh

    I'm so jealous that it's not cold enough there to wear tights! I've been wearing them every day! Those ankle socks are so cute though. I want a pair :)


  15. Amanda on September 8, 2010 at 6:28 PM
