My favorite jackets to wear this fall

October 3, 2019 in Style - No Comments

I am here to return a jacket, I told myself. This is not a shopping trip, this a return-a-jacket trip.



Do you ever have to give yourself pep talks before you walk into *that one* store. For me, that store is Abercrombie & Fitch.



There will be no shopping, I told myself. No browsing. No “looking around for fun”. Looking around is NOT fun when you cannot buy anything – and YOU cannot BUY ANYTHING.



Except maybe a turtleneck sweater, because I’ve been looking for one of those. But anything else – NO.



“Hi there!” The sales girl greeted me as I walked into the store. I had my jacket-to-return in hand. “Something I can help you find?” She asked.



“Nope!” I said, gesturing to the bag in my hand. “Just have a return.” And that’s it. Just a return. No new clothes today, nope, I’m not even going to LOOK at that brown suede jacket that I can see out of the corner of my eye.

How to Shop Your Own Closet.

I was inspired to write this post because I *didn’t* buy a jacket. 

Back story – I have fifteen thousand jackets at home. Probably. I haven’t counted, but I know that when I open up our “coat closet” (also doubles as our laundry/shoe/vacuum/Swiffer closet) most of the coats that I see in there are mine. Maybe three of them are Kyle’s. And one of those I bought for him. 

This post could have just as easily been titled “Confessions of a Shopaholic” or “How to be a Crazy Coat Lady” – but honestly, that’s a little embarrassing and – based solely on my experience today – I am clearly turning a corner outside of my consumerism mindset. 

Exhibit A: I did not buy a jacket. I *almost* did. But then, I didn’t! Yay! (Isn’t this a great story so far?)
