Time out for shopping with my sister...

Sorry to everyone else who follows my blog and doesn't care about what I wear... 
But I need a little shopping time with my Sister.

So...  Hey Lynn, I was at the post office today mailing some letters and photos to Elder Dayley and decided to stop by one of your favorite stores in Caldwell... Story and Company :)

It's still cold here, but I just know spring is right around the corner and also KNEW she would start having some cute spring clothes, I should keep my eyes open for... especially today while I was sportin'  my raggedy old navy sweatshirt, worn out jeans, challenger hat and my slip on and go fat baby cowboy boots.  Not my best look, even though I find myself in it way too often. 

So I walked in and she asked if I was there for their $2 for 2 days sale?
"Uh, no, but I am now!" 
ha ha ha

I wanted you there so bad!!  
They had so many cute things in your size too.  
I tried shopping for you as well, but I kept picking up pink stuff 
and then had to put it back!  I don't know why I still do that???  
You just can't wear pink. but I am in such denial.
She had some orange patten leather Jimmy Choo spiked heals...

 I just giggled, (they were just like these, but they were size 11 :)
So cute though right?  
I could see you pulling out your manicured toes with orange painted flowers on them, no hose but your legs look tan and your calves are buff from pushing through hard workouts with Nora, and a leather pencil skirt after walking back up the hill from Pike Place Market to get an apple for lunch!  
Totally Right??!!

Anyway, back to me... 
I found this jacket, not cut totally right, but really close don't you think?

 And this Lands End sweatshirt is soooo soft... I know super casual, but it's not black!
 In my effort to find bright colors and sway from all black... I found this bracelet, it screamed spring to me.  Looks like it will go with everything.  Cute right?  It wasn't on the $2 racks, but still a great "Story and Company" price!  
Is that a second one in the background?  Oh just maybe?
And my Relic bag is falling apart, so I saw this and well $2, 
I didn't really need everything to be green, 
but it's NOT ALL BLACK either... so it will work.



Tell me what you think of my two dollar finds? 
I am trying really hard to get some color into my wardrobe.
I promised myself I wouldn't live in my sweats all spring (but I still need somethings casual for things like mutual with the youth on Wed. and arrow head hunting on Sat. with Jim).
Too bright?
Is the lime green way out this year?
I really need you to shop with me, it's hard by myself.
AND photos afterwards, well uggg at least that might keep me conscious about what I am eating :)
Love you Miss you Tons!!
Hugs,

LOVE the green! It is a great color for you. I can't wait to see the jacket open with a bright color tee or at least open at the neck. Rolling up the sleeves to 3/4 will be fun to. The pocketbook is to die for as is the braclett. I LOVE THIS STORE!!!

The zip up comfy shirt looks great on you. You did GREAT!!! So glad you are thinking of you.

I hate shopping without you. I haven't gone since I was in Boise. I'll have to try the pictures.
