A brief break...

Yesterday marked the first day of Lent, and as I've done for the past several years, I've given up what I enjoy the* And since I'm just now coming off of the 30x30 no shopping rule, this year is going to be especially tough.

But since I cheated a little during the 30x30, maybe it won't actually be any different than normal...

Anyway, taking advantage of my brief break between self-imposed bans, I made an appearance at the Macy's one day sale last weekend and picked up this little dress on deep, deep discount. Hopefully, it can tide me over until Easter.

Dress: INC 
Cardigan: Express
Shoes: Nine West (via Shoe Woo)

*On a side note, I donate the money I'd normally spend on myself to various charities every couple of weeks until Easter, and while I have one or two in mind that I plan to give to this year, I'm also open to suggestions, if you have a favorite in mind.


  1. now no shopping till are a stronger women than I! I love that think it can be very versatile come warmer weather!

  2. Hi!! Adorable dress!!! LOVE those hot shoes!!!

  3. Oh my gosh, Tara. you are CRAZY for giving up shopping right after the 30 for 30 shopping ban. I never realized how much I loved shopping until the 30 for 30, haha!

    GOOD LUCK!! :)

    and the dress is super cute!

  4. A shopping ban! I know, it's so tough. We're in it together, sister!!! That is so great that you give the money away too!

  5. That's a really nice idea about giving the money to charity!!! :)

    I LOVE this dress, but more than anything I love these shoes!
