If I were more of a crafty fashionista I would use this title as a blog URL. Actually I couldn’t because I just Googled it and this blog name is already taken, so I will just use it as a title. Lately I have been clothes shopping a lot. By a lot I mean like 3 times. THAT IS A LOT for me. I never shop..I hate it. I hardly find anything I like, and when I do it’s workout gear.
I own ONE pair of jeans, and these are frumpy jeans that I wore to work at TJ’s because leggings just weren’t going to cut it at this job. I kept the jeans in case I ever need to do yard work or something messy. I don’t do jeans, I just don’t. While shopping the other day I found the most adorable pair of skinnies. I bought them, and have worn them like everyday. I also found a dress that brought out my inner grandma and fell in love with the sleeves.
I had to snap a picture to prove that I was in fact born with two X’s. I just love those sleeves! Oh I also wanted to make up for the barbaric photo’s from yesterdays post! HA!
More importantly, I am officially addicted and made a late night trip to The Bearded Lady. I went with the idea of getting ONE cupcake. I should have known, what a joke..ONE?!
So I left with two cupcakes and a brownie. I wasn’t alone though, never do stealth operations alone.
I need help.
Q: Do you like shopping for clothes?

HATE HATE shopping for clothes. i don’t own a pair of jeans for that reason. I hope one day i can get better at it and enjoy it more
Those are some good looking treats…oh and we hate malls so shopping aint fun in our family either..
I’m so girly hahaha I loooove shopping.. I have too many clothes. Bargain hunter 😉 Love the dress- it looks cute on you!! lol
That dress is fantastic!! I just bought one last week exactly like it but black! 😛
You look like the perfect vegan barbie, with a tattoo!! Um shopping is the vain of my existence, unless I’m at a grocery store. The boy has already asked me numerous times to go Christmas shopping with him and I am all like “meh, I got everything on Amazon already!” And he is all “Well would you come with me to help” and I’m all like “Why do you continue to ask me to shop, you just get mad I don’t look like I’m having a blast shopping”
HAHA he wants his lady to come with him!! I hear you though, if I go shopping and don’t want to be there I get crabby!
HAhaha too funny!! I like the dress.. I don’t really enjoy shopping– the joys of being fat lol

You are killing me w/ the cupcake photos, girl!!
Thing is, I used to LOVE to shop. Loved it. Now – ugh. I think for me it’s because I’m at that weird and awkward crossroads between Anthropologie/Urban Outfitters/The Gap and Chicos. I refuse to wear anything Chico, yet I don’t want to look like that 46 year old who refuses to acknowledge that she’s not 16 any more. Luckily for me, most of my time is spent on the ranch where looking “nice” is just stupid. Hence, Carhartts jeans, t-shirts from past races and a cheap fleece from Old Navy.
My mom loves Chico’s, but she is almost 60! I think you could totally pull of The Gap and Anthropologie. I can’t even pull off some of the stuff at Urban Outfitters, although I did have a shirt that I wore maybe twice that said, “vegetarians taste better.” yeah…thank god I gave that away.
Your ranch attire sounds WAY better than any of these places anyway! I live in old race shirts and cheap shit.
Rebecca @ Blueberry Smiles
Ginergerbread plum sounds like an incredible cupcake combo!
Amanda @ .running with spoons.
I’m sorry, what were you saying? Those cupcakes kind of made my mind go blank… Holy.wow I want that brownie. ANYWHO! I used to hate shopping for clothes, but I think I’ve gotten better over the years. I’m not the biggest fan of jeans, but I have to admit that a nice pair that fits you just right (alongside a pair of gorgeous heels) is definitely a confidence booster.
I hate shopping. I get so frustrated when nothing fits me! I wear jeans all the time but I’ve had them for so long, a lot of them are getting really worn out. That’s the problem with being an athlete, I guess. But I would definitely go shopping if it meant rewarding myself with cupcakes after 😉
whoa those cupcakes! they are so pretty. i do like shopping, but i am broke at the moment. i was just thinking how long it’s been since i have shopped! you’re right, that would make a cute blog name! have a great day 🙂
The Scrumptious Pumpkin
Haha great post. I have to be in the right kind of mood for shopping. The cupcakes, I’m always in the right mood for! 🙂
Alex @ Brain, Body, Because
I DESPISE shopping for clothes, especially the part when you have to try everything on. UGH.
Where did you get your jeans? I have one pair of jeans that I also reserve for yard work / dog walks / cold hikes.
I got my jeans at JCPenny!! $25 bucks!! Such a steal, still loving them!
natalie @ will jog for food
I liked shopping for clothes before I was only in maternity stuff! hehe. One thing I hate is shoe shopping!
Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile
I hate the act of shopping, but I love buying new clothes. If that makes sense? I hate trying to find things and trying a bunch of stuff on, but getting new clothes is awesome. I love that dress!!! Super cute.
That makes perfect sense and I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I agree 100%. I hate shopping, but loveee when I find something good!
OMG, you are super cute in that lacy number! I can go thru phases with shopping, but I do usually end up with workout clothes and leggings and zip up hoodies. Recently I bought a pair of boots—that was a big deal, I’m awful at footwear (outside of flops).
Hello cupcakes!! Yum.
Agreed- those sleeves are adorable! And the gingerbread orange cupcake is calling my name!:)
Melissa @ Mouthwatering Morsel
Love the dress!! esp if it was in black. I cannot wear white for the life of me. I am always scared I’d get food all over myself though that never happens when I wear normal colored clothing. haha
In love with that dress. I have one pretty similar in black which I absolutely love. Those cupcakes look to die for as well. 🙂
I hate shopping….. I love cupcakes. And you are way too cute!
LOVE the dress.. oh and the cupcakes/goodies…obviously! that’s not even a question!!!!
Change of Pace
That is a cute blog name, and I love the dress! How amazing do those cupcakes look?!
I’m not a big shopper, unless we’re on holidays!
Cupcakes centered around gingerbread sound amazing!!
I am loving the lace! Very cute! I generally enjoy shopping except when I am looking for something that I specifically need because then it always seems to take forever to find (aka nothing fits right, I can’t find what I’m looking for). I prefer stress free shopping!

OMFG!!!!!! I HATEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE SHOPPING! HATE IT TIMES 1 million! My manager HATES ME because I hate clothes and fashion. I wear Lululemon everywhere, even to black-tie events! Suck it… It’s my “brand” and I am going to rock the shit outta it! LOL!!!!! Buh ugh, I am being FORCED to go shopping for clothes (for myself) this weekend, wish my yoga pant loving ass luck!! However, I LOVEEEE food shopping. Leave me at a Whole Foods at 9 am, and I will still be entertained if you came to pick me up at 6pm! Well I’d also have a crazy stomach ache because I would be eating allllll day long! LOL! Well, I am off to go click “confirm” in my AMAZON cart – XMAS presents for the family, DONE! LOL!!!
Luv What You Do
Love shopping for clothes…but wish I had more money in that budget : )
Those cupcakes look incredible!
Christina Does It All
omg that dress! you are so cute. let’s shop together! right now.
i also liked the two x’s comment because I just took my Biology final and I understand that joke. Kind of sad that I probably wouldn’t have before this semester 😛
Oh darling, that dress is just precious!! I absolutely love the vintage look too it!! You are adorable.
oh man the cupcakes. ooooooooooh the cupcakes!!
I have to be in such a GREAT mood to battle the shops and do all the trying-on. You look loooooooooovely girl!
That dress looks super cute on you, Britt! I love buying new clothes but not really a fan of the actual process of shopping…and in winter, that dread just multiplies! The idea of taking off/putting back on so many layers is enough to keep me away!
I like the *idea* of shopping for clothes, but once I’m really doing it, I usually just get frustrated.
I like clothes shopping, but some days I just hate trying things on. It kinda depends on what kind of clothes Im shopping for. Cupcakes however…Im always up for one of those!!
Life After Swimming
Don’t even get me started on how adorable you are. I don’t even have anything else to say about this.
I love shopping for clothes but rarely go because the funds are not allowing it 🙂 Love the lace dress you found!
Shopping is always so depressing for me.. I focus on what size I am and as of late that # goes up and up! I do LOVE that dress though. Swooon.
I guess I never shop either cause I’m in my army uniform every damn day… I digress.
Rach @ This Italian Family
!!! Is that dress from Kohls?? There is one really similar to it in blue (http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-1291462/ab-studio-lace-dress.jsp) that I fell in love with! It’s on my Christmas wish list so here’s hoping. 😀 Also, you are adorable in all that pretty lace. Embrace the inner grandma. It’s classy! 🙂
Ohh no I saw this one at TJMAXX (so maybe originally from Kohls!?) I hope you get it!!
All That I'm Eating
Lovely dress and great cupcakes, what more do you need?!
Heeeheeeheee. Impossible to decide.
And then we continue to kid ourselves to think three cupcakes will last three days! <—HHAAAHAHAH
PS- Love that dress and shopping is a love/hate thing with me.
you look so cute!! i love lace. and i’m also considering stealing your haircut…
Some days I love the hair, and some days I absolutely hate it!! I think you’d look adorable with the cut! 😉
foods for the soul
You can NEVER have too many cupcakes! Or brownies. (Or any dessert, for that matter!)
