Buyer’s Remorse

The good news is, I got a new phone yesterday. The bad news is, I’m having buyer’s remorse, which is one of the worst emotions in the world. Yes, my old phone barely made calls. It was time. And yes, I really like the new one, minus some quirks I’ve yet to unravel. But, when I called to cancel Verizon, they made me a sweet deal, and I think I could have gotten an even better phone – on Verizon’s network – for about the same as I’m paying now. Grr… Oh well. It’s only money, right?

Why is this relevant to you, you may ask? Well, regrettably, in the transfer of my files not all of my pictures came over. Many did, but all of the previous outfit collages I’d made but not yet blogged about are gone. So, my reservoir of past outfits has all but dried up, meaning you’ll now be subjected to my poorly-lit pictures of what I’m wearing to stay warm in my office in the Georgia tundra. Sorry.


This outfit was much cuter in real life. I have trouble capturing dark colors on my camera (any photographers who want to give me a tutorial are welcome!), so the blouse is black, the jeans are dark rinse, and everything else is close to accurate. I do love purple and teal together, though, and this jacket is one of my favorites. Also, these jeans were skinnier when I bought them. Now, I’m skinnier which is awesome, but they’re a little baggy which detracts from the overall impression in my opinion.

Oh well – one day, all factors will collide – the size of my clothes, the lighting, my camera skills – and you’ll just be amazed at what a fantastic outfit you’re viewing. Or, maybe not. 🙂

  • Jacket: TJ Maxx
  • Jeans: Old Navy (and, to be fair, they were only $10, so I can probably afford to get a new pair)
  • Blouse: JCPenney
  • Booties: Charlotte Russe
  • Necklace: Rahab’s Rope


  1. I’m loving the booties and the statement necklace. A great shoe and killer accessories can pull any look together. I’m looking forward to connecting with you through the SITS Tribe!

  2. Good morning! I’m in your SITS Tribe Building Challenge and I just wanted to introduce myself. I look forward to reading your posts!

    I’m sorry about the loss of your photos. That really sucks.

      Thank you! Looking forward to getting to know you. And thanks for your sympathy about my pictures – I was bummed, but I’ve bounced back. 🙂
