Matchy Matchy

So I've been wanting a really great casual jacket and short suit set for years. I mean years. Ever since I got this issue of Elle.
Actually, I really wanted that (DVF) jacket and shorts set, but unfortunately, it was thousands of dollars. Hmm, I'm sensing a life theme here...

Some trends (especially RTW runway trends) take something like minutes to translate to the average girl's retail stores, but others take foreverrrrr. Example: I wanted a really great boyfriend utilitarian jacket I think a full year to nine months before they really started hitting full stride in stores. Don't get me wrong here. I am totally not on trend and off the mark sometimes, and I'm completely fine with that, too. But sometimes, it can be a little frustrating when the only options you have are spending $$$$$ (which isn't really an option) and waiting a year.
Topshop had a pretty cool knit suit that Susie Bubble picked up:
It's pretty cool. But it's knit. And printed. Translation: my butt's big enough already thanks, I don't need an extra three inches.
And then I found this one on Asos:
It's a little girly, but I liked it. That is until Asos posted it on its Facebook page, meaning good luck finding my size. Eh, I didn't like it that much.

I'm missing the point. The point is: I need to stop spending money. LOL. Yeah right. But really -- I've been pretty good this month! (So far...) And I'm saving to invest in some really great, comfy basic tees and go-with-everything Chelsea boots. Here's lookin' at you Aritzia and Topshop.

Wahh I wish I wasn't so lazyyyyyy about my personal blog! I guess having two writing jobs kind of makes me want a break from computer screens and CMS (gasp).
