I'm sad to report that there was another fashion casualty this week! First, on Monday, the gems started falling out of my totally adorable and brand new Me Too Precious Flats. I had grown concerned when I visited the Nordstrom website and discovered this message:
Did not meet quality standards? Hm. I assumed initially that Nordstrom was just being overly picky and thought nothing of it. Then two hours later, I noticed that two of the gems were missing from my shoes! Not cool! Luckily, Nordstroms has a legendary return policy so I'll have to traipse across town and return my pretty new shoes.
I'm so sad because these are the shoes that I wore to meet Dr. May. Obviously the awesomeness that was Dr. May was simply too much for the shoes! They knew that they'd never experience anything more amazing which lead to severe shoe depression and ultimately the decision to commit shoe-icide, which is never never the answer.
So in the midst of the ongoing mourning for my adorable new flats, my capris took a turn for the worst yesterday! They were two years old and cost $16 at Marshalls so the fact that I was able to wear them as many times as I had was pretty impressive. But then yesterday afternoon, the zipper broke!
I don't know what their excuse was. They've never met anyone cool!
To ease my pain, I ended up with a full shopping cart at Anthropologie and before I knew it, I had clicked "Submit Order". I imagine I'll be returning at least a few of these things but I really liked them and wanted to see them in person.
The Pinpointed Skimmers are completely adorable and will potentially replace the flats that I loved and lost...if they fit. I ordered a 10 which is a full size up from my regular size because the reviews say that they run small. Fingers crossed on these! I also realized that I didn't want to live in a world where I hadn't at least given the Mermaid's Rainbow Necklace a shot so that's on my way to me as I type this. And I don't know how it happened, but two full priced items snuck their way into my cart: the Gifted Skirt, which I knew I was going to order eventually, and the Rosy-Posy Posts in white. Aren't these earrings adorable? I've been all about posts lately since picking up the Bright Bulb Posts to meet Dr. May. Since I'm definitely returning my Double Torsade Necklace (for which I paid full price), that essentially means that the new earrings are free. Yay for shopping math!
Today I got all dolled up for court only to have my case continued. Ooooh I hate that and it happens all the time! Thankfully, I got out rather quickly instead of having to sit around for hours only to find out that we don't have the right judge or an attorney is sick or there's no time for us to have a hearing. There has got to be a more efficient way to run a courthouse, but unfortunately I'm not in charge (not that I'd have any better ideas anyway!)

Happy Birthday, Abbie!
I hope everyone is having a good week. I feel like it should be later than Wednesday, but the good news is that I've already done 2 of my 4 scheduled runs! Now I just need to do 2 more runs and 2 nights of yoga and I won't be subjected to public embarrassment in my Keep on Running post this weekend (click here)!
