new shoes

The shopping fast is over.

on sale now at Old Navy!

I've had my eye on these for months. I'd seen them in magazines before they even hit the stores. I don't even know what I'm going to wear with them ... but I'll figure something out.

I saved money by waiting, too -- originally $19.50, they're on sale at Old Navy now for $11.70!

Of course, I spent that saved money by buying a second pair.

I couldn't resist. I love this pattern, too!

Over the weekend I picked up a few items at Ann Taylor LOFT -- I had $100 in savings cards that I had to use! And Banana Republic sent me an email today to take an extra 20% off their sale items.

I know, it seems like the fast just made me explode back into my old shopping habits. Well, I had some birthday money to spend! And, yes, it was a little pent-up.

I did learn some things I needed during my fast. I guess when you're not buying things, you pay more attention to the flaws in what you do have.

Most of my pants are too short, even with flats. And I only have one pair of jeans I can wear with the majority of my heels (2-3 inch). I need to find some longer pants!

I can use a casual pair of brown flats and possibly black boots that are flat enough for my barely-long-enough pants. (They're not all hopeless!)

I also need some neutral sandals to wear with my beach dresses in Jamaica. And a one-piece bathing suit for triathlon training, but that doesn't count. It's something I actually need!

Before I buy anything else, I should really go through my closet again. If the weather would make up its mind, I could rotate my clothes and shoes for spring/summer!

I started another 60 days on April 1. I feel like I need another cleanse. I was good for two weeks after the end of the last one, then vacation was planned and I went insane! OH, to have self control...
