impulse buys

Today’s outfit was the result of a little impulse purchase.  Last weekend I trotted into GAP expecting to return a pair of jeans, not planning on making another purchase. Little did I know the entire store was 40% off and oops – they got me!  I’ve read in the past that it’s best never to purchase online and only shop in stores to avoid impulse buys.  I’m the complete opposite. I constantly scour my favorite websites for the best deals and new arrivals, but I’m also on a monthly budget and am better able to make purchases more reasonably online. I tend to add items I like into a shopping cart online and wait for the right sale price or promo code.  
Anywho, I was immediately drawn to this lightweight peach sweater (which comes in multiple colors) and light colored flats, neither of which I have in my closet.  I also picked up these lightweight seersucker khaki pants. And wallah!  I had an outfit.  And a new pair of jeans because the nice service rep explained the jeans I brought into return were supposed to be sized down for a better fit.  To my own dismay (ha.) they fit perfectly when I sized down.  Impulse buying at it’s best folks!
Happy Good Friday everyone!
