|Awesome rain boots from Urban Planet, $25.00.|

Let me start off by saying that I hate the mall. It wasn't always like this though! As a teen, I loved it. I would go downtown myself on the weekends or after work to shop my heart out, spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on bags full of clothing and accessories! I can't imagine myself doing that now and it seems like the last time I really splurged was forever ago. Anyway, a couple weekends ago Rich had made an appointment at the Apple store. Since it was midday, on a Monday I decided to tag along. He'd do his thing and I'd shop.
I'm glad I went, because I picked up a nifty new pair of rain boots that were on clearance for $25! Better yet, I had a store credit from literally a year ago for $20. Therefor, I only spent $5 out of pocket. I love, love, love the details on it and the fact that they are green. The red lining and orange zipper accent definitely makes it.
I headed on over to Forever21, because you can't really go wrong with basics that are dirt cheap. Those jeans? $12.50. These would be my second pair too! They are so comfortable and light. They fit perfectly (hit's my ankle just right, no bunching at the bottom) and you can't really go wrong with them. I wear them with flats or even flip flops on super casual days. Sometimes I'll cuff them and wear sneakers. The loose fitting tank top was only $5.80 and is super light and awesome. Perfect for layering under a cardigan! I don't find that either garments are poorly made - they'll last the year, minimum and what if they break? Like, dude, they were less than $13 a pair!
P.S. I prefer to (mall) shop alone. I find that if I have others with me, it slows me down...or vice versa. I like browsing. :)
