Y’all, I started off 2015 with this really self-righteous No Shopping goal because I simply do not need anymore clothes right now.
And I’ve been doing pretty good with that. I did buy a new pair of black pumps for work and another pair of silver pumps to party in, but other than that, my shopping has been…in control. AKA Not Happening.
With that being said, I have been coveting the Fairbault Woolen Mill-Target collaboration for several months now. I’ve looked, looked away, and looked again.
Anyway, it’s on sale now. The pieces are still what I would consider to be “expensive.” Which means that they cost more than $30. I know that paying ~$50 for a blanket is reasonable, but I have a tiny frugal streak, you know?
I grabbed the wool shawl because the last time Kelsey was in town, she informed me that the two NYC trends that have not yet fully made it to Minnesota are blanket scarves and glass water bottles.
I’ve been on the prowl for a blanket scarf and realized that this would be the perfect traveling companion for an early March trip to Italy. I think I’ll have to hold off on the glass water bottle until…after that. Or you know, next week.
I also grabbed a blanket. I think it would be a cozy and neutral addition to our living room.
I also thought that the wool would probably be a good contrast to the suede-ish couches and the faux-shearling throw that currently reside in there. You know, fiber mixing and all that. Or possibly the first step to 100% vegan living room (not).
