Free! I'm free!

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

It's that time ladies and gentlemen, it's JUNE 1ST! I've lasted the entire month of May, through markets and sales; long weekends and boring weekdays, and bought nothing.

No clothes, no jewelry, no shoes, no makeup.


As you can imagine, this has not been an easy task for me. I know I had to do it, that I owned way too many clothes (still do really), and that most of them had been worn once and then relegated to some forgotten corner of my closet or drawers, but it was hard going. Because I like to shop - not window shop mind you - shop. Look around and try things on with the possibility of actually falling in love with something and taking it home. Taking myself out of that activity left me with a surprising amount of time to twiddle my thumbs and I've been working on ways to fill it.

Which I'm convinced is a good thing. Reconnecting with old friends, making new ones, helping people - these are things that I'm sure later on will be end up being good for me, even if I can't recognize it now. Though I have to admit that I already have my eye out for a new piece or two to add to my closet - but that piece is going to be thoughtfully chosen! Nothing willy nilly, but things that will help me cultivate the pseudo style that I'm trying to create for myself.

And I know I have one more weekly summary post to get up - you don't have to remind me ;). I've been busy sleeping/learning how to survive when it's 100 degrees outside (which is a lot harder than it sounds, so really you should just be glad I managed to take pictures of things in spite of all the world factors working against me, lol.). Until I have that ready though, I leave you with a few pictures of my grand horseback riding experience from over the weekend.

Talk to you guys soon!
