On Monday, I shared the goodies I #FoundAtSimon during the St. Louis Premium Outlets Joy of Giving blogger event. If you missed it, you can catch yourself up here. I'm working a little backwards by sharing my outfit for the event after the fact. But, there were other fun things that happened that day that needed to be blogged! So let's get started!
As with other blogger events, I agonized over this outfit. The challenge was finding something cute, something warm (ish), and something (i.e. shoes) comfy enough to walk around an outlet mall for a couple of hours. I remembered this flat lay I posted here and thought it would be perfect!
Instead of the Rockstuds, I went with my new peep toe booties I ordered for Black Friday! I've been itching to take them out for a spin because they are absolutely delish! I was a little worried my feet wouldn't last in them. I usually have a stock of Foot Petals on hand at any given time, but I didn't have any extras to use for these booties. I went ahead and took the gamble and wore them anyway.
My feet lasted just fine, actually! My day started at 8am and I wore them all day at the outlet mall, then the regular mall, and I didn't end up taking them off until 5pm. I definitely give these booties two thumbs up in terms of comfort.
So yeah. My day started with an amazing shopping spree at the outlet mall alongside a few other local bloggers. Luckily, the husband agreed to be my chauffeur so I didn't even have to drive! Extra bonus! I happened to see that one of my favorite Cardinals was doing a public signing. The outlet mall is about 45 minutes from our house, and the public signing was in the same area, so naturally, I had to kill two birds with one stone and go! I'm starting to become a groupie here considering I just went to another signing a couple of weeks ago!
With Cardinals 1st Baseman Matt Adams
I mean, how cute is he though?! He's an amazing first baseman with an even more amazing bat! AND he said the spelling of my name is "awesome." Yep, awesome. I was over the moon excited, and I'm thankful that the husband doesn't mind me being his crazy fangirl wife that I am! I love baseball. Hurry up, opening day!!!
Soooooo, then! We decided to buy a new truck. Yeah, that escalated quickly. Last week when my family was here, the husband was talking about our "car plan" which basically consisted of trading in my Saturn Vue and what car I would get once the lease was up on my Audi. He mentioned wanting to buy a truck, and I knew that the second he started looking, it would be a matter of days before it was sitting in our garage. He's quite excited about it, and I do like it a lot myself. IT HAS ADJUSTABLE FOOT PEDALS!!! I miss having adjustable foot pedals like my Ford Explorer had. I was so excited to see this truck had them too, especially since it's such a big vehicle! It such a life saver for this shortie!
Shopping spree, meet my favorite Cardinal, buy a truck. We set the bar pretty high for dinner, but since the husband is being extra sweet because of the new truck, I made him eat at Wang Gang with me because I love that place and he never wants to go! (It's basically a cheaper PF Chang's.)
And that our Saturday!
