My mother was very generous to me when we went on our excursion to the Bad reaction to zoloft saying it was “back to school” shopping. You have to love it. I suppose that makes up for me going a bit crazy in July. I don’t normally include workout clothes in my shopping wrap-ups but I felt it would be dishonest considering that’s where the majority of my spending went in July. Thankfully I really love everything I bought and it has been worn several times for trapeze, running, and weight lifting.

The top from Collide Boutique is a tiny bit too small but for wearing underneath sweaters (the main reason I bought it) I think it will be fine.

And funny story about my new purse: About two weeks after I started using it I tossed a peach in there to have as a snack. Turns out I didn’t eat it. And forgot it was in there. Yeah. My purse now smells like peach schnapps even after a good cleaning.

I know Labor Day is supposed to be good shopping but instead of shopping for clothes I’m actually going to be shopping for a wedding ring. Yes, I’m already married. I’ve actually been married for 10 years. But on Saturday my friends took me out for the crazy bachelorette party I didn’t have 10 years ago. I took my wedding ring off to play the part of the bride-to-be and it didn’t make it home with me. I’m alternating between being cool about it and freaking out. But, there’s nothing to be done now but convince myself it was time for an upgrade anyway. Right?
