No Shopping For One Month

This t-shirt is a lovely option for Valentine’s Day, isn’t it?

The first holiday of the new year is one of my favorite’s—Valentine’s Day!  Of course, the stores have moved full steam ahead and the shelves are currently filled with lots of sweet treats, stuffed animals, a bunch of sparkle, and of course lots of shine.  And I want in.  As a lover of both the upcoming holiday and clothes in general, what’s the best way for me to acknowledge the holiday?  Why with something new, of course!  But the question is, what should I buy?

Haflinger Slippers are on my Christmas list.

The holiday’s are approaching fast.  I only update my lounge/sleep capsule once a year.  Previously I did this during the fall season, but this year I’m updating my lounge capsule for the holiday’s instead.  The holiday’s are the time of year when I’m traveling and staying with relatives and/or entertaining guests at my home, which places my lounge/sleep capsule on display.  This means that it’s the perfect time to update this wardrobe capsule.
