I thought I’d write this post because I’ve had a few people ask me where I get things I wear. When I tell them, they’re in disbelief and I don’t understand why. I’ve been shopping second hand stores for the past four years or so. Before I was married, I had a bad habit of not having a specific amount in mind before shopping. Now, I’ve given myself a decent budget which allows me to choose wisely instead of buying everything in sight. You don’t have to break the bank to look great. I’ve read horror stories of people working themselves into debt behind shopping. It’s never that serious.
Many who know me know that I love H&M. When I received their email about deals under $20, last week I had to act. I was able to find the top three pieces. From left to right: a black peplum top with silver detail ($14.99), a black houndstooth wrap skirt ($19.99), and a glittery fuchsia peplum top ($9.99). I spent under $50 for all three with free shipping!
My best friend’s wedding is August 30 and I still have yet to get my gown. The other bridesmaids got theirs in late March. Honestly, I was going back and forth about whether I still wanted to participate because my energy levels have been nonexistent. I could tell she’d become irritated with me dragging my feet about the gown. But pregnancy changes a lot emotionally, physically, and in the hormone department.
