. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Treat yo self

Treat yo self

striped cardigan
fall outfit
sweater: c/o sheinside     jeans: old nay   boots: zulily 

Last week I had the most relaxing day I've probably had since Addilyn's been born.  After Addilyn's morning nap I got to go get my hair done, which takes a nice long almost two hours.  Then later that day I got an hour long massage and went to a friend's house for girls night dinner.  It was wonderful. As I was running the marathon I thought about this day multiple times, and it felt like a much deserved reward after working so hard that day.  

I used to hate spending money on things that I couldn't tangibly keep.  I would have never spent money on a massage, or rarely spent money to get my hair done.  While I surely spread out my hair appointments and can't imagine being able to justify getting a massage often, it was wonderful and I'm so glad I did it.  And would happily do it again.  It felt so nice to have hours to myself and I felt relaxed and happy.  Maybe it's getting older or Chris rubbing off on me, but now I certainly enjoy experiences almost as much as buying new clothes.  

To add to my pampering day, I got this sweater in the mail from Sheinside and I wore it three days in a row.  It's so comfy and I'm going to keep wearing it all the time.

Also-- I just noticed that the sizing on this sweater is "one size" -- how is that working out for you? I've never placed an order with the company, but now with free shipping, I might have to.
