Today's Everyday Fashion: What I Want, Not What I Need


The shopping habit I can't seem to shake: buying what I want, and not what I need. Is that really such a bad thing, though? Surely, "want" has a place, too. Life is short and meant to be savored. Most days I'd rather be dressed in colorful and over-the-top, and fun things like these embellished espadrilles, lemon earrings and yellow polka dot top are the spice of life - at least for this girl wearing them they are!! Consider it a little joie de vivre, straight from my closet!
