It struck me that the two of us could run (and giveaway winner!)

Thank you all so much for your encouragement and for sharing your own stories on yesterday's post. It really helped so much. I'm sorry for being such a debbie-downer, but fear not! Today is a new day, and I'm trying to have a better outlook :)
Anyway, today was my first day of work as my sister's personal shopper! And let me tell you, it was exhausting (but wonderful)! I tried everything on, making sure that the clothes had a good shape that would fit her body type and that they would fit (she's about a size bigger than me, so I used my best judgement). I had a lot of fun with it, actually! I love putting outfits together for myself, but putting together a wardrobe for my older sister, who works as a lawyer and needed not only casual clothes but also a work wardrobe, is a new challenge that I'm enjoying tackling. I think I'm going to meet up with her Friday to help her put some outfits together so maybe I'll even do a sister outfit post :)

Dress: JCPenney, Sandals: Nordstrom, Belt: Another dress Headband: Forever 21

I definitely chose comfort and ease over fashion today. I find that I have the most difficulty putting an outfit together for shopping than any other occasion, ironically. I want to wear something easy for trying on clothes, but not sloppy, and my usual shirt tucked into a skirt with a belt and maybe a sweater isn't the easiest thing to take off and put on over and over in fitting rooms.

And now, what you've all been waiting for! I picked a winner for my headband giveaway!
And the winner is...

Chloe from Dirt on Your New Shoes!!!

A big thanks to everyone who entered. It means so much to me that you support my little ol' blog. And Chloe, I'll email you shortly!

Until tomorrow,


  1. Aww you look so cute today! I always try to make sure I look nice when shopping; I read once that people who work in clothing stores are much more willing to help customers and not be wary of them if they are dressed nicely and look presentable. What you're doing sounds so fun; maybe you should try to incorporate an "Elle Woods" look for your sister's work attire, how does she feel about pink? haha :)

  2. I totally do the same thing when dressing for a shopping day. It's always easy going dresses for me as well. You still look adorable though like always.

  3. aww lucky chloe! i find wearing dresses while shopping the easiest too! shopping for others is sometimes even more fun than shopping for myself hehe. and yes please do a sister post! that'd be so cute!

  4. aw u look cute, love your belt!
    congrats chloe :)

  5. I too have a heard time deciding what to wear when I go shopping. You don't want to wear something that is to hard to take of and put on a million times, but you don't want to wear an outfit that is to plain and simple, and won't reflect your personality at all (you never know who you are going to see while you are shopping; so you still want to look good).
    Ah well, that's life for you.
    Oh your dress is really pretty and the color looks really good on you.


  6. Aww! This is so cute! I'm so disappointed that i was gone for your giveaway haha. Or was I? Huh. It's been too long! Anyways, that dress is so cute and I love your nerd glasses! I'm so jealous that you are a personal shopper!! Your sister is one lucky girl. That sounds like a BLAST.
    Thanks always for your comments;)
