Just when I’ve halfway convinced myself to take a bit of a break from shopping…another cute dress comes along!!

It’s my own fault, of course – if I really wanted to stick to my plan, then I shouldn’t have headed to the local mall for my favourite Starbucks soy chai latte; the drive-through would have been a more prudent option!!

At first, I truly was “just browsing”…but what’s the fun of looking if it doesn’t also include some trying on, right??  And this swingy little polka-dotted number (from Forever 21) was simply made for a late summer lunch date on an outdoor patio – which my husband and I had planned with some friends for the following afternoon – so it naturally ended up coming home with me!!

And even though I’m still not ready to think about how autumn is looming just around the corner, I know my newest wardrobe addition will work equally well with tights and boots and a leather jacket once the weather turns chilly!!

    Well, when you gotta shop, you gotta shop πŸ˜€ You can't just leave a pretty dress on the shelf, am I right? You look lovely in it, so it was definitely worth it πŸ™‚
