New Years Resolution- Be a Better Blogger

Ahh friends it has been a while. With the New Year safely rung in I am hoping that I can get back into the habit of posting on a regular basis. So lots of randomness to catch up on here today. Lets start with a great little gift my roommate and BFF gave me for Xmas...

The Barbour Jacket that I wanted! She found it at a thrift shop and said even though it might be a little big for the me, price was so good she couldnt pass it up! I love that this one has the darker lining and I will wear it on causal snow storm days with my navy bean boots.

Speaking of which my boss gave me the bean mocs I have been coveting. I had to switch them for another size which should be coming in Feb. I think they will be so cute with the barbour coat, and in new england you can never have too much foul weather gear!

I headed over to the mall last night because the BFF also gave me a gift card to Victoria's Secret so I wanted to check out the Semi Annual Sale. I found some good stuff and nothing was over $3.99 so it was a super deal. Not a chance Ill be posting a pic of those. Hahah. As I was walking out I walked past Gilly Hicks a store I had posted on earlier and they were also having a sale so popped in and picked up a few more pairs of panties and relished in the amazing decor of that store. Isnt their tartan bag soo cute!
 Its brand extension of Abercrombie and Fitch and even though I think the company is pretty raunchy I will say this store is superbly designed and I always love taking it in.

So I was on my way out and determined to walk by the Rugby store without going in and emptying out my bank account but I decided I would just "look" (yeah right...) Lots of wonderful stuff on sale but my favorite was the new button down shirts that have MADRAS ON THE COLLAR. I fell in love. However, I know that these are for spring so I am going to exercise some restraint and wait till then to grab one (or two... probably three) they also had some great socks with bright fun colors (always makes me think of Maxminimus and his love of the horizontal stripe) Thats all for now but more to come in the New Year!
Well are you?
