This time last year, one of my favorite morning routines was dropping my oldest son off at preschool and taking a little shopping trip. I would browse the aisles, sip on a coffee and just think of the possibilities; it was therapy. But, this time last year, my youngest son was just a sleeping little bundle in a stroller, along for those coffee filled rides.
As they always do, things have changed. My babe is no longer my tiny sleeping sidekick, he is a screaming, let me out, I need to run sidekick. So, those shopping trips, have become few and far between. Except for this one particular morning. He fell asleep. We were headed out to play, but since he was asleep, I took a little detour. I pulled up at the mall and did the most delicate carseat to stroller transfer I could do and did a little happy dance when he kept snoozing away.
I walked into LOFT and grabbed
many a few things to try on. Let me tell you, I should have shopped a little faster because this trip was short lived.
After the first thing I tried on, this floral peplum top, he was awake and he was mad, like most babies are when they wake from a slumber. So, I rushed myself out of the dressing room, not buying a thing. But, as I walked to my car, I thought about that floral top.
I thought about how cute you were, floral top, with your little peplum and sheer sleeves and how your beautiful jewel tones looked great with my brown hair.
I pulled you up online and thought to myself, you just don’t look as pretty online, but I still love you. Problem was, you weren’t on sale and this cheapo doesn’t buy things unless they’re on sale. It’s the basic knowledge that LOFT has a sale like every week so paying full price just isn’t an option for me, but I digress.
So, I waited and waited…until I got that beautiful e-mail that LOFT was having yet another sale and I scooped you up!
Sometimes a piece of clothing comes with a long story, you ponder it for a little while before you make the purchase, for whatever reason. But, for me, the things I ponder the most are the things I end up treasuring the most. What about you?
p.s. – Happy almost Thanksgiving!!!
