You guys, remember how I said the Las Vegas club scene wasn’t exactly my thing? Well, I’m going to be totally honest with you. I NEVER go shopping. Okay, never is an exaggeration… but RARELY. It’s RARE.
Like, I will grab something that I need here or there or snag a sweet deal at the Target clearance rack for $7 – but I rarely have money to actually spend time, SHOPPING. When you’re trying to save money like crazy and raise money for a mission trip – spending extra American dollhairs on clothes just ain’t in the cards.
One day, perhaps, but not right now… and I’m totally OKAY with that. Honestly, it’s been really fun remixing the stuff I already have.
But that’s honestly a conversation for another day.
SO, when I was in Vegas last week for work, the last night we were in Vegas, everyone went out for a big fancy dinner and then went to the club. Now, that’s totally fine – but I was SO tired and frankly – I just wanted to kinda be in my own zone. You know what I mean? Well, instead of spending my money on a fancy dinner and drinks – I went to the MALL right next to our hotel, got Chipotle for dinner (yeah, I got Chipotle in Vegas… sue me), and went SHOPPING.
Now, I didn’t go crazy, but it was fun to just walk around the mall and snag a few deals.
Also, the mall had a ZARA. Now, I lurve Zara, but there is NO ZARA NEAR ME. Sadface. Well, I was floored. Seriously, for a second whilst walking around The Zara, thought I was hyperventilating – they have so many pretty things there.
WELL, long, rambling story short, I snagged these blush pink jeans and this aztec printed top you see before you. And, all together, the jeans and top were only $50!! The jeans were on sale for $30 and the top was on sale for $20. NOT BAD, if you ask me!
SO yeah, I love this outfit. It might be my new favorite outfit right now. For reals. Now I paired it with the jean jacket in some of the photos for bits and giggles… but no way jose did I actually wear it all day – it is HOT AS ALL GETOUT here in North Carolina. My golly. And the humidity. SHEESH.
So, do you love the Aztec Print? Are you Zara-less where you live, too?
ANYWAY, Moving on.

“12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 3:12-14
