will i ever grow up?

Happy Wednesday FRIENDS!

I went shopping at Forever 21 recently and thought I would share some of my purchases/deals.  As much as I hate to admit it, I'm not 21.  You might be shocked by this, but it's true.  I'm sadly approaching 30 much quicker than I'd like!  However, I can't seem to break the ties I have with Forever 21 much to my dismay.  It seems like every time I leave, I always say to myself...that's the last time.  I guess I go through phases of finding things and not finding things.  The day will come soon when Forever 21 and I no longer see each other.  Honestly, what I love most about the store (like all other girls) is that it's cheap and trendy.  Let's face it, I'm not going to Forever 21 for staple items that I want to last years. I'm lucky if I get a few wears out of _______  (fill in the blank) before it rips, tears, breaks, etc.  It doesn't bother me too much now, I like to stay in style so I find myself always needing wanting new clothes anyways.

Enough about that...let me show you a few great little things I picked up.  Out of the five things I purchased, nothing was over $16.00 (hence why I love Forever 21 so much)-gotta love that!!!!

Threaded Bangle Set

Ruched Corset Top

Retro Rose Earrings

High Rise Polka Dot Shorts

Painted Flower Bracelet


The polka dot shorts are my favorite and I'm excited to wear them soon!  Have a wonderful rest of your week FRIENDS!

  1. I feel the same way about Forever 21 - but I think you can take some of their items and pair them with more "grown up" looks - that way you can keep shopping there! I shop online for that store b/c I'm always paranoid that if I go in there ppl will think - what is she doing in here! :) Thanks for the boutique recommendation yesterday - I checked out their site and I love it!! :)

  2. So true Meghan! I have a hard time shopping online and with their weird exchange policy I find it easier to go to the store and try on. Plus there's one right down the street. But I know what you mean about people looking at you. Ha. They're just looking at how pretty you are :) Glad you checked out Francesca's. It's one of my favorite places to splurge.

  4. You have to grow old, but you don't have to grow up!! I am all about F21 & I am 30!! I love their deals and trendy stuff. What's the point in paying too much $$ if it's not going to be in style too long? New follower! :)

    1. Thanks so much Leeann! Actually the shorts came with the skinny yellow belt. Can you believe it? All for less than $16! That is why I love forever 21. Ha.
