Shopping Cures the Blues

Being in the new girl in town can be fun sometimes, but only if you can actually interact with people to whom you are new.  Since that’s yet to happen here, I went to my happy place – the Mall of Georgia.

This mall was probably reason enough to move to Georgia.  It’s massive and wonderful.

I stocked up on several things (all on sale, of course), including the cute little tank I’m wearing above.  A bow of sequins?  If you know me at all, you know that was totally irresistible to me.  Plus, I’d been looking for some more cute tanks – they’re harder to find than you’d think.

The jacket I got at Target, another happy place, later that afternoon.  It’s soft and warm and will go with a million things.

And rounding out my shopping spree was a trip to my new favorite place for accessories – my job!  The Rahab’s Rope store really is cute, and I was eager to stock up, especially since most of my jewelry is currently packed away.

I wore this outfit to church on Sunday and was feeling pretty good about myself…until I walked to my car afterwards and saw the red lipstick smeared all over my chin.  Still not quite sure how that happened, but I suppose humble pie is good for anyone now and then.

  • Tank: Rue 21
  • Jeans: hand-me-down
  • Shoes: Payless
  • Earrings: Rahab’s Rope


  1. Hey Sarah Beth! My name is Cherrie and I blog over at CherrieAmore.com. I wanted to introduce myself as I am in your SITS tribe building challenge! I can totally relate to this post. A couple of years ago I moved to a new place where I knew no one and shopping became my bff! It got so bad that the salespersons in the stores started remembering me lol. Btw, i love the outfit! The sequin bow on the shirt is cute!

      Haha. Well, the salespeople don’t know me yet, Cherrie, but give me some time. Thanks for stopping by!
