Swallow your pride this fall

Let's be honest. Fall rolls around and you want a whole new wardrobe. Summer isn't really a exciting time to shop. Shorts are shorts and tank tops can only be so exciting. But just when you are beginning to feel the summer slump, cue fall. With its layers and rich colors, and heavy fabrics. My heart starts beating a little faster and I feel the urge to shop.

Unfortunately my budget doesn't allow for a glorious Fall weekend away in Paris but I have stumbled upon some local, cute fall options. Everything on this board is under $50. Can't beat that!

I was sick of hearing all the hype about Oldnavy Rockstar colored jeans so I thought I would go see for myself if these jeans lived up to their praise. For 19 bucks (cheaper if you have a coupon... I had 30% off) and pretty much every color under the rainbow, polka dots, cord, neutral and classic jean, I was starting to think this was too good to be true.

So I tried them on, grabbed a 6... I'm pretty consistently a 6. Tried to get them on, tried being the main word here. After trying and failing to make the 8 work, I swallowed my pride, "Can I try a 10?" All the while muttering under my breath even if these damn pants it no way I'm buying them. Size 10. Fit like a charm.

Guess what I walked out with?
