A Jacket for Fall

I’ve been wondering recently, when am I going to feel like a proper grown up? At 31 I thought it would have happened by now, but I swear I still feel as immature and innocent as I did when I was 21. Perhaps it will happen when we have kids?

Then yesterday it suddenly hit as I was tidying up. I noticed all my magazines are all “mature-older-people type” Martha Stewart, Country Living and Good Housekeeping. When did these sneakily become my fave? Where’s In Style and the Gossip mags? And to top it off, I’d just made an order at Lands End that I’m very excited about. Too excited in fact, I’m sharing with you all.

I’ve been keeping my beady eyes on THIS jacket for a while, last week it was reduced to $29.99 (from $99) and yesterday they announced a three day sale of an extra 25% total order + free shipping. Just use code: DISCOVER and pin: 6956 at checkout. My total was $24…whoot, whoot!

Out of excuses, I ordered. Now I’m excited to see it in person.

I also have been looking this wool cotton throw $19.99 + this linen pillow case $9.99, even lower with the 25% off…but I’m resisting!

This morning I danced around (while making my bed) to Lady Gaga’s The Edge of Glory. Then reminded myself my last online buy was from Urban Outfitters, and decided being a grown up is great, coz I get to do exactly what I feel like, even if that’s acting like a granny or a teenager at any given moment!
