I bought some new clothes over the weekend for my upcoming trip to England and Italy. I did really well to hit a sale at Fashion Bug for 'Buy one get one for $1' and Lane Bryant had their strapless bras for 50% off. I have been needing one of those. Cato on the other hand was giving me no love in the sale department. Come to find out, they don't have actual sales, they just mark things down. Of course, my size vs. what I was looking for = nothing on sale. The good news there is, they had EXACTLY what I was looking for!
All in all, even with the sales, I still spent way more than I wanted to but I got a total of:
2 pr of pants
1 strapless bra
2 regular bras
5 new pr of underwear
The thing about it though, when I was spending all that time picking things out & trying them on I just kept seeing me wearing everything in Italy. I would search out things and think, yeah, this is great for Tuscany!
So what's the issue you ask? My primary trip is to go to England to visit my friends and Italy is just a fun thing we'll do while I'm there. Italy isn't the main focus of the trip. But my heart keeps bubbling over when I think about landing in Pisa!
I think maybe it's because I have always dreamed of going to Italy. I was interviewed once when I was about 18 for a local newspaper. The question was, "If money was no object, where would you go on vacation?" I said, "Italy. I want to go see where my ancestors came from. I think it would be beautiful to see." Now I'm actually going!!! I still can't believe it. I'm so very excited to be going to England as well but I think for me, Italy will be my favorite part of the trip. I know it will end too quickly. I will just have to tell myself, I can come back again! How do you like that, I haven't even left for my first trip there and I'm already looking forward to going back!
Can you blame me?
