Patience is a virtue
Ask anyone and they will tell you that I have no patience whatsoever. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Although as I have gotten older I have gotten better at delayed gratification. Mostly because my budget and grown up responsibilities have forced me to. Nonetheless, its true.
Take this skirt for example. I saw a similar one in navy and white at Forever 21 months ago and desperately wanted it. I even searched the whole store to find another one in my size. But alas, I left the store empty handed. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago. While shopping at the thrift store with my mother I ran across this skirt. Exactly like the one at Forever 21 but in Pink and white (and probably cheaper). The colors were different but it made me feel like I had a one of a kind piece. Thank you Salvation Army! So moral of the story, sometimes patience and delayed gratification are a good thing! Who knew?!?
Btw, its was so cold here yesterday, so I had to bust out a sweater! The weather can't decide if it wants to stay spring or not! Ugh..
