Drawing lines seems so limiting sometimes and yet critical for change. I have drawn a big line around shopping. I am not reducing or limiting it, I am eliminating it for a period of time. I am in the first quarter of my 28 days and it has been exhausting in some ways. The truth is, I enjoy shopping. I love hunting, curating, styling and finding the impossible. If I get a great deal ,as well, it’s a huge win. So sitting out is hard. I am also not completely out. I have not purchased anything, but I am still linking items on my blog, so my eyes are not covered with “shopping blinders”. My plan was to spend the time I was not shopping doing other things like writing. I have done more of that, but I want to do even more writing. My son and I are both fighting colds right now, so it’s hard to tell if I really have a “shopping detox” headache or if I just have a head cold. Either way, it has turned my thinking around and made me feel like am waking up from a dulling sleep. Gaining consciousness can be uncomfortable, but I am ready.
This week I wanted something simple and almost went with just the subtle pink. I decided to add the lines (in my favorite navy) and I love the result. I visited some of my favorite clutches and still kept my resolve while snapping a few photos.
Items in the photos include:
Striped Clutch (on sale!)
Yellow Calf Hair Clutch (on sale!)
